The Peninsula Spa taps into traditional Chinese medicine for its latest spa treatments. The offerings, collectively called Han Therapy, seek to harmonise each guest’s body, mind and spirit, bringing them balance with the change of season.

With the arrival of spring, TCM practices focus on the revival of Yang energy in the body and the nourishment of the liver. At The Peninsula Spa, these processes are embraced with two new Han Therapy packages: Spring Cleanse, a 100-minute balancing ritual consisting of a 60-minute Meridian Massage and 30-minute Signature Scalp Massage; and the 120-minute revitalising Yang Energy Boost, which includes an extra 20-minute Meridian Gua Sha treatment.

Both packages begin with a consultation where an expert therapist will assess the guest’s Yuan points. Guests will then select three bottles from a customised combination of Five Element oils by Yangsen Biotechnology from Taiwan. Based on their selection, the therapist will recommend a suitable treatment.

In addition to the new seasonal Han Therapy treatments, the Spa is also offering a special Renewed and Celebrated spa package, which guests are invited to indulge in during their birthday month at the Grande Dame. Thoughtfully designed to provide a personalised wellness journey, the package includes a choice of a 60-minute Holistic Body Massage, including Aromatherapy, Swedish or Deeply Therapeutic Massage; use of the spa’s luxurious facilities; and time in their luxurious Relaxation Area and tranquil Asian Tea Lounge.

Ignae, the transformative Azorean clean skincare brand combining cutting-edge science and sustainable practices, has come to The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, bringing three signature treatments and their high-performance skincare range. The 120-minute Ignae Digital Detox Retreat will leave you relieved from the stresses of our urban, device-led lifestyle, courtesy of Azorean aromatherapy oils in a welcoming foot bath, reflexology, scrub and full body massage using products powered by their EPC Factor like the Blue Light Serum, leaving your skin and dermis soothed and restored for a rejuvenated glow.

Next, the Ignae Powerful Recharging Facial harnesses phycocyanin from Azorean spirulina, a powerful antioxidant shown to accelerate wound healing and stimulate collagen production, and pairs it with expert lymphatic drainage techniques to detox and lift the skin. Whilst the Ignae Fountain of Youth Holistic Facial deploys a tailored gua sha massage technique – developed especially by Ignae in partnership with a university in Shanghai – to enhance blood circulation, skin elasticity and cellular regeneration. Paired with highly concentrated active ingredients from Ignae’s proprietary EPC Factor, guests will see an immediate visible anti-ageing effect.

La Mer

Just in time for spring, La Mer’s new Moisturizing Fresh Cream is a refreshing take on its signature healing moisture. Feather-light in texture, the Fresh Cream is formulated to renew the skin’s youthful bounce for a firmer feel, blended with a youth-renewing Miracle Broth complex to balance sebum and reduce excess oil, making it ideal for oilier skin types.

The latest addition to Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria collection, Florabloom is inspired by the grandiose spectacle that is ‘superbloom’, a natural phenomenon that occurs when heavy rainfall in the Atacama desert causes flowers of all colours to burst forth, setting the dunes ablaze with radiant, intense hues. The Eau de Toilette captures the essence of this superbloom when the sun is at its zenith. Bursts of citrus-filled sunshine glimmer to reveal a dense, creamy floral bouquet, dominated by tuberose. The Eau de Parfum, on the other hand, depicts the sun’s journey towards dusk. The same rich, multicoloured accord is underpinned by bold sandalwood and velvety moss for an added touch of warmth.


Burberry has reimagined the iconic Hero fragrance by Riccardo Tisci to create something that explores a different side of heroism. Housed in a deep oak-coloured bottle finished with gold hues, the new Hero Eau de Parfum features notes of fragrant incense and benzoin on an earthy base of cedarwood oils and pine. One spritz of this EDP will bring you the courage to embrace who you truly are. Learn more about the fragrance on the Burberry Hero Hub and find your perfect Hero scent with the Burberry Hero: The Game.

Inspired by heritage Burberry colours, the new Burberry Eye Quad combines four complementing colours in matte, satin and shimmer finishes, to create customisable looks from natural and soft to intense and dramatic. Effortlessly blendable and buildable, the powders offer up to eight hours of flawless, smudge-proof wear. The Burberry beige and gold compact case includes a mirror and a double-ended applicator for precise, multi-effect looks. The inner grid is removable after use to keep a perfect mirror compact. The palettes are available in four variations: Iconic Honey, Dusty Caramel, Blush Beige, and Midnight.

Designer the go beyond, the Burberry Beyond Wear Setting and Refining powder fuses ultra-thin powders with skin-protecting ingredients like raspberry stem cell and Vitalit-E to create a 24-hour mattifying veil while keeping skin smooth and comfortable all day. Use yours as the finishing touch to your routine to control shine and lock your foundation in place, or to even your complexion by blurring imperfections.

Ole Henriksen


Joining their iconic Transform Collection is the new Double Rewind Pro-Grade 0.3 per cent Retinol Serum. Featuring a plush, cloud-like texture for effortless absorption, this product is formulated with aloe juice, Scandinavian rowanberry water, birch sap, and two pro-grade retinoids (a vegan encapsulated retinol for wrinkle-fighting action, and a pro-Vitamin A retinoid for longer-term anti-ageing effects). This hydrating serum is clinically proven to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and re-texturise skin in just two weeks.

They are available in six universally flattering shades, ranging from a glossy tan called Suzanne Brown, a shiny scarlet called Teresina Red, a soft orange called Sadie Coral, to a classic clear gloss called Joslyn Clair.

If you’re looking to upgrade your base makeup, try this four-step routine using products from the Nars Light Reflecting line. First, prepare your skin and make it soft and hydrated with the Light Reflecting Moisturizer. Next, apply the Light Reflecting Foundation, which comes in 19 shades and is perfect for all-day wear due to a formulation blend of makeup and skincare. Then comes the award-winning Radiant Creamy Concealer, which boasts 24-hour hydration and a smooth finish. Lastly, finish with the lightweight cult-favourite Light Reflecting Setting Powder.



Clarins’ new limited edition Pâtisserie Collection is inspired by artisanal French desserts and crafted with botanical ingredients. The transfer-proof Water Lip Stain in Raspberry Ganache features organic aloe vera for a soft and moisturising formula, while the Lip Comfort Oil in Hazelnut Macaron is enriched with a blend of three plant oils. The classic Fix’ Make-up gets a Rose Sorbet scent upgrade while providing the same long-lasting hydration and protection. The protective Hand and Nail Treatment Cream is scented to yummy Caramel Mousse, and their glowy UV Plus 3P Rose Glow SPF50 SPF++++ now comes in the scent Blackcurrant Tart.

Another stellar Clarins release are two new products to join their Precious series, which uses the natural and restorative properties of the rare moonlight flower from France. The Precious La Mousse Douce Nettoyante is a cleanser enriched with nourishing camellia oil, softening raspberry water, exfoliating nopal extract and more. It also comes with a specially designed brush for a luxurious skincare experience. The Precious Protecteur UV Revitalisant SPF50 PA++++ hydrates, protects, and illuminates all in one, made from a combination of chemical filters for maximum protection without a white cast or oily feeling.

Inspired by the latest cryotherapy techniques, Clarins introduces the Cryo Flash Cream mask to its covetable repertoire. A light and cooling formula developed with dual molecular and plant technology to reproduce the mechanisms of cold on the skin, it harnesses the power of the cold to deliver radiance and a healthy glow. While organic evening primrose extract helps to improve the visible signs of ageing.

The new expert duo, Hydra-Essentiel [HA²] Bi-Phase Serum and Restoring Cream-Mask, combines regular and acetylated hyaluronic acids with organic leaf of life extract to deliver intense continuous, multi-level hydration, reinforcing the skin’s natural defences by improving its barrier function. Begin with the Serum, enriched with saffron flower polyphenols to refine skin texture and tighten pores. Then seal it up with the Cream, loaded with ceramides and lipids naturally present in the skin barrier to comfort and nourish the skin.

Issey Miyake introduces two new and intense Eaux de Toilette: L’Eau d’Issey Solar Violet and L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Solar Lavender. A fresh encounter between water and matter, the former combines violets with aquatic notes under the springtime sun. The luminous facets of this purple flower are enhanced by the sunny notes of pear. In the latter, pure water intertwines with vibrant lavender, creating a dynamic fusion of cool and warm, aquatic and aromatic. Sichuan pepper warms it up, while cedarwood adds depth.

Experience retinol-like strength that is kind to skin. Fresh’s new and improved eye treatment features its iconic antioxidant black tea blend. The result is visibly improved dark circles and a firmer, smoother eye area. The addition of vitamin C helps to brighten and even skin tone, while wild ginger extract reduces the look of dark circles and eye bags.
