A well-executed facial can do wonders, especially for men’s skin and is the perfect way to wind down after a long day.

The Spa Club, is truly an oasis in the city. The first impression was how spacious yet private the establishment is, with a dedicated men’s area on the upper level. What really won me over was the ambience – clean and luxuriously scented air, well- controlled lighting with soft piano tunes.

Treatment process

The Refinery Essential Facial for men uses the Aromatherapy Associates line of men’s skin care, which is full of skin-loving essential oils and smells invigorating and lush. Under the skillful yet gently hands of the therapist, I was taken through the facial routine of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, massage, masking and as a final step, application of a moisturizer. My therapist was attentive and kept me well informed about the products and routine. The extraction was a tad uncomfortable but the essential oil massage that followed instantly soothed my skin and lulled me into a quick slumber. It is good to note that the products contain no parabens or harsh chemicals.


After the facial, my face felt fresh and clean, and upon closer inspection, I was thrilled to see how even- toned and smooth my complexion looked. It was a pampering 60 minutes well spent and I can definitely see this as a regular lunchtime treat or a post flight pick-me-up.
