Personalised Facials at Eco-Spa Moksa Slow Beauty

Nestled in the heart of Soho, Central, lies Moksa Slow Beauty, an eco-friendly wellness haven for those looking for a natural pamper. The spa (and juice bar!) offers a range of treatments from mani-pedis to eyelash extensions, all curated with a sustainable conscience. We visited Moksa to try the personalised facial for a relaxing weekend indulgence.

Location


Located at the bottom of Soho (you’ll see it after coming up the escalators from Queen’s Road), it’s hard to miss the spa peeking through the glass, as you’re arriving into the populous foodies’ haven among Hong Kong’s financial district. The Spa Moksa Slow Beauty—Moksa meaning “Emancipation, Liberation and Release” in Buddhism and Hinduism—emphasises its sustainable philosophy through its clean products, ethical slow beauty processes, and environmental consciousness. The luxury spa has been opened for one year now, and features a Natural Nail Bar, Detox Juice Bar and Natural Beauty Bar, including an assortment of local brands with the same eco principles.

The cosy, decorative interiors make you feel instantly rejuvenated, an elegant theme of Balinese-meets-Parisian. Feel the bohemian décor as soon as you enter, a canvas of wooden furniture, tropical patterns, and plush sofas to kick back and unwind.

The Treatment


After a warm welcoming and introduction to the facilities, my treatment was ready to begin. The ingredients bar and shelf are full of Essential Oils, herbs, and natural remedy ingredients for the pampering treatments.

I was given three pots – one for each stage of the facial and personalised for my skin type and condition (dry and prone to redness). First, the massage oil was made of pure JoJoba Oil, the cleanser was made with lime, rose petals stirred in with Moksa’s eco-brand for the moisturiser. And lastly, the mask was green clay, stirred with tonic water for a thicker consistency and to be applied last.

My spa therapist was Juliette, a lovely lady who expertly applied each stage of the facial, including a back and shoulder massage to start, and a facial and head massage during the treatment. Breathe in the aromatherapy diffusers during your session for total bliss – I was drifting in and out of sleep from the calming relief of the massages. After the treatment, I was invited to lounge and drink the freshly brewed herbal tea to detox after the facial.
