Shangpree, top spa in Seoul

If you are into beauty and skincare, you will no doubt love Korea. If you ever visit Korea, it would be hard to not check out what all the fuss K-beauty is about. Walking down streets filled with beauty shops and beauty spas, you will probably feel a little overwhelmed by Korean beauty and not know where to start. I guess a lot of the fun is in discovering and trying new product. But sometimes you just feel like a good luxurious treatment while on holidays right? I haven’t been to many beauty spas in Korea, but I would love to share one of my recent spa experiences in Seoul – which I would highly recommend!

I first came across Shangpree Spa through Chriselle Lim’s post on “5 spas in Korea to try”, and after a little research, I found out that Shangpree is one of the most prestigious, A-list-studded spa in Korea that has been sweeping up multiple International and National awards around the world 8 years in a row. 21 awards in 2015 alone! With 26 years of professional expertise, Shangpree has developed their own Esthetician Formula,  producing premium quality products for professional use in their salons as well as at home treatments. The Korean government has even awarded and dubbed Shangpree as the “model spa” for their intense knowledge of skincare and incredible techniques. If that’s not enough, just to show their high standard of professionalism, a licensed aesthetician with 20 years of experience needs to be re-trained for 3 more years at Shangpree before being allowed to even touch a client’s face. No doubt, I booked myself their signature S-energy Facial Treatment, and it became the most anticipated event for my Seoul trip.

Shangpree has multiple spas around Korea, and I was lucky to get a booking at their Gangnam spa. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the lovely manager and got a little tour of their beautiful space. Then I was led to a private room to begin my 90-minute bliss.

Shangpree is famous for their ‘Modeling Masks’ (or rubber mask as some people call it), it’s like a thick runny texture when applied and gradually dries and solidifies on the face before taking it off in one piece. It apparently keeps your skin moisturized for 72 hours!

For my 90-minute treatment, they did three rounds of facial treatment while my legs were getting massaged in air bags to help with circulation. I was treated with their signature green tea modeling mask (see pics below) where I was painted to look like Shrek for 40 minutes. The mask was super cooling, and looked so good that I spent a good 10 minutes leaving memories on Snapchat (see video below).

The moment I’ve been waiting for – peeling that rubber mask off like giving birth to new skin. My skin felt so hydrated, cool and smooth. Then finishing off with some of their amazing products from the S-energy range, left my skin glowing, for days. Thank you Shangpree for such an amazing experience!
