The Peninsula Spa Shanghai rolled out a new treatment menu in October 2011, which included luxe services like the Bamboo Harmonizer (a 110-minute massage that uses bamboo sticks). But more recently, the spa introduced Biologique Recherche facial treatments that use products rich in botanical, marine and biotechnical extracts by the Paris-based luxury skincare company. The four new treatments include the Intensive Lift C.V.S. Anti Ageing that exfoliates, lifts, firms and re-sculpts skin; the Biomagic Brightening and Toning, which is recommended if you’re looking for an instant glow and uses a combination of mineral ingredients to brighten the complexion; the VIP O2 Oxygenant, an oxygenating treatment that brings radiance back to stressed skin and is perfect for city dwellers who are exposed to constant pollution; and the Purifying and Balancing, which is a soothing treatment that purifies and balances the skin (as its name suggests) and helps tighten pores and brighten the complexion. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa also offers the use of the remodeling face machine, a bio electrotherapy machine that combines electrical impulses with customized serums to help lift and tighten the skin and reveal more pronounced cheekbones and more defined facial contours. And if you really love the Biologique Recherche product line, they are available for purchase at the spa.
