Test-Drive: Bee Sting Facial Therapy at Chuan Body + Soul | Liv


The Buzz: The Langham Hotel recently renovated their health club and added a petite spa: Chuan Body + Soul. Though  it has luxurious facilities, including treatments by Heaven by Deborah Mitchell, an all-natural UK-based brand that offers a signature Bee Venom mask, which claims to be “nature’s botox.”

The Treatment: You’ll be glad to know that while the products contain contain bee venom, there’s no stinging or discomfort involved. In fact, it’s a very massage-based facial treatment, with an intense but deeply relaxing facial massage to get that product deep into the pores. While the mask takes effect, you can also pick from a leg or arm massage to really chill out. The products all smell divine, thanks to the vanilla, organic marshmallow and shea butter infusions.

The Verdict: This facial is a bit different in that we only really appreciated the results the next morning, when we woke up groggy after not enough sleep to a surprisingly taught, lifted complexion that suggested a great night’s rest. An added bonus: all Chuan Body + Soul guests get access to the hotel’s gym and pool, which even serves healthy, low-sugar cocktails and mocktails for a post-treatment relaxation sesh.

The Cost: Sessions cost $1,380 for 75 minutes.
