Discover a Brisbane spa treatment so indulgent even Cleopatra would be green with envy!

We’ve all read the studies that suggest chocolate is good for you, but in our heart of hearts we’ve come to accept that these delicious coco concoctions can’t be added to the healthy food column.

However, a Brisbane spa has been pushing the boundaries when it comes to sweet indulgence and is offering up a chocolate treat that promises to make your skin and body sing. Zero calories included.

One Wybelenna is one of Brisbane’s newest spas, opening in April this year. Amongst the many indulgent treatments and packages on the menu is the Deluxe Chocolate Scrub, a package that director Heather Sartain says will relieve stress via the welcoming harmony of chocolate.

“The Deluxe Chocolate Scrub with Ancient Thai Pinda Balance is a combination of exfoliation, massage and skin nourishment relaxing the mind, body and soul,” she says. “It commences with a deliciously scented chocolate body scrub, which is then removed with warmed mitts.

“Skin hydration and gentle massage adds the finishing touch with the use of pindas, parcels of crushed precious stones and crystals in muslin cloth warmed to release tension and balance the body.”

If chocolate body scrubs are not quite your cup of tea, then take a step up the food chain and dip your toe in the latest beauty trend to utilise crystals and pearls.
Who said diamonds are a girl’s best friend?

“The Crystal and Pearl Elixir Ritual is a combination of exfoliation, chakra balance with an exquisite Pearl Noir facial set to energise, firm and balance the body and face,” Ms Sartain says. “An all over body exfoliation is followed by a chakra balance with the placement of crystals on the seven energy centres of the body.

“The exfoliating mask is removed with deliciously warm mitts and the skin nourished with a luxuriously soft body cream. The treatment culminates in the facial with black pearl mask, designed to leave you feeling like you are floating on a silk cloud.”

With spring here and summer on the way, exfoliation is your best friend when it comes to maintain vibrant skin.

Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturising products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy for the season ahead.

One Wybelenna is located at 1 Wybelenna Street, Brookfield. The Deluxe Chocolate Scrub is priced at $195 and The Crystal and Pearl Elixir Ritual is priced at $325. For more information visit www.onewybelenna.com
