I spend quite a lot of time shopping every week, so I thought I pretty much knew all the skincare brands in town, but recently, I discovered a new, high-end French skincare brand called Evidens de Beauté.
Started by a French man with a Japanese wife, this skincare line aims to combine French stylishness with Japanese meticulousness when it comes to beauty rituals, offering a East meets West skincare solution for its customers. Evidens opened its first spa in Hong Kong a few years ago, and has recently relocated the spa from Causeway Bay to Central.
The spa on Lyndhurst Terrace is small but very inviting, luxurious and exclusive. The staff is extremely polite and attentive, and it is also relatively easy to book an appointment here. Since it is my first visit to the spa, I am escorted to a room on the first floor to fill in a questionnaire about my skin conditions and beauty habits. After a discussion with the therapist, I decide to go for the Essential Hydrating Facial, which costs $1,590.
There are fresh fruits and biscuits in the waiting room, and I am also served a cup of hot barley water, which apparently helps reduce bloatedness!
The changing room is small compared with hotel spas, but the upside is that I can have the whole changing room to myself, since the spa only has three treatment rooms.
Some basic products, such as foundation and body lotion, are available for use in the changing room.
It is a nice touch that all the towels in the changing room are embroidered with the brand’s name and logo.
There is also a funky shower cubicle.
It is extremely comfortable and serene inside each of the treatment rooms. My facial lasts 75 minutes and includes a complete ritual of cleansing, moisturising and face, head and shoulder massage. The therapist is very experienced and knowledgeable, shows a thorough understanding of my skin type and also offers great suggestions on how to take care of my skin.
After my facial, the therapist gives me samples of their skincare to try. I notice that the Evidens skincare is definitely not cheap at all, and in fact, seems to cost the same or more than the Sulwashoo skincare which I normally use. However, the sales assistant assures me that the products are made from the finest ingredients and each product can last at least 2-3 months as you only need to use a very small amount.
Overall, I find their skincare very moisturising and nourishing for my dry skin. The products smell incredibly fragrant and the texture is fantastic for absorption. However, as I have only tried their samples, I cannot confirm whether their products can really last 2-3 months as the sales assistant suggests or whether they justify the hefty price tag!
When we leave the spa, the staff is not pushy at all in asking us to purchase packages or products.
Even though the Evidens skincare is very expensive, the prices of their spa treatments are in line with other international skincare brands (note: unlike hotel spas, there is no 10% service charge here). I really enjoy the privacy at this spa, and also my comfortable and well executed facial treatment. As it is relatively easy to make a booking here, I can totally see myself coming back for more treatments.
Have you been to the Evidens spa or tried any of their products? Please share your feedback and let me know what you think!
