5th Avenue’s touch

5th Avenue’s touch

Love at first touch -  after all, who could say no to a natural facelift? Radiance seems to be what all women are after, even more so than wrinkle-free skin. It’s simple; would you rather have smile lines on your glowing skin, or be smooth and dull?

I recently had the opportunity to try the infamous Kobido facial at 5th Avenue Hair & Beauty Salon at Laico Regency Hotel. I was beyond excited to finally experience the world-renowned kobido sculpting facial. Wow! Mine was delivered by the talented Moureen Nyagah, and it was such a memorable experience. It was like receiving a choreographed dance upon your skin – sculpting, soothing and toning.  

The massage, aims to rejuvenate your face by putting elasticity back into your skin. It originates from the traditional Japanese massage Anma, and is a combination of face and neck massage. My therapist took it a notch higher by using Anubis Cosmetics Excellence Glycoviar, a range of products that reduces the signs of aging effectively due to the combined action of nourishing caviar extract and skin-renewing AHAs, restoring firmness, smoothness and hydration to the skin. The Glycoviar complex has excellent results in decreasing wrinkle depth, smoothing the skin, not to mention, the treatment is an urban detox for the face.

Damage? The Kobido massage goes for KSH10,000, while the Excellence treatment is priced at KSH8,000, and worth every penny.
