Beauty Adventure: Voya Organic Peppermint Scrub
Zen the Spa at Al Ghurair Reyhaan is not new to us. We tried and loved its relaxing hot stone treatment (check our session here), and so we returned. This time, on our R&R agenda is to experience the newest organic craze we’ve heard about: the Voya body treatment.
Voya is an organic seaweed beauty product manufacturer based in Ireland’s Atlantic coast that offers a host of facial and skincare options for total skin pampering.
Upon entering the serene, scented treatment room, we felt immediate relaxation while doing the quick assessment and briefing about the Organic Peppermint and Seaweed Sugar Glow Scrub. Then, with no further ado, we were asked to lie down the bed, and the scrubbing began.
Get ready for some hard treading all over the body, and stay put even if it felt sticky. The shower after the scrub showed us how soft our skin could feel with Voya, and how purified our body would become.
The treatment was refreshing, and all-over exfoliating treatment awakened our skin and body. It featured a fabulously fragrant mix of organic peppermint leaf, seaweed and sugar all of which performed the double action of gently removing dead skin cells while introducing the uplifting effects of organic peppermint essential oil.
At the end of the treatment, we were indulged with Softly Does It Body Moisturizer. The beautiful scent of the lotion, coupled with the non-sticky feel, paved the way for an awesome closing. However, we believe that it would be better if the scrub were coupled with a full-on body massage.
Nonetheless, we had an amazing time once again at Zen the Spa at Al Ghurair Rayhaan by Rotana. And, after the session, we spent some time at the relaxing area, sipping a cup of tea and nibbling slices of fruits, give us a moment of blissful relaxation for both body and spirit.
