Our top beauty treatments to try in 2022:
STRIP Rosebud Vajuvenation
Kicking off our beauty treatment guide for 2022 is STRIP’s Rosebud Vajuvenation. Ladies, have you ever tried a vajafacial? On top of your monthly facials, it’s time to incorporate major TLC to the most sacred part of your body. Identical to a Brazilian facelift, STRIP’s Rosebud Vajuvenation is an anti-ageing facial to lift and firm your private region. The non-invasive and non-surgical procedure uses high-performance Thermal O2 Technology by combining radio frequency, vacuum suction and gentle heat to deliver the best results.
Believe it or not, the delicate vulva can lose its elasticity due to harsh soaps, humid air, hormonal changes and age. Thanks to the treatment, you won’t have to worry about fine lines and wrinkles again. Other health benefits include increasing blood circulation and boosting collagen growth while enhancing skin hydration.
The process takes 30 minutes to complete and promises instant results after one session. A layer of chocolate oil is slathered on the surface after a Brazilian wax to ensure a smooth experience to reduce friction. Don’t worry about the suctions of the unique device, as you will get used to the soothing sensation a few minutes in. The therapist will focus on each side of the vulva for 15 minutes, where you can instantly notice a ‘lifting’ contrast. Once the treatment is done, you can definitely feel and see a plumping and tightening effect with a noticeable reduction in fine lines.
We recommend trying this service after your monthly Brazilian wax appointments. If you have 15 minutes to spare, add the Blackout mask for a hydrating finish. The charcoal mask is infused with organic botanical ingredients to detoxify, soothe, brighten and hydrate.
STRIP is currently offering its Rosebud Vajuvenation service at a special offer (RM68 nett) for first-timers till 30 June 2022. Head to the website for more info and make an appointment at these outlets here.
Mimone Lymphatic Drainage Detox Full Body Treatment
Made for women by women, Mimone was founded in 2018 and is known for its exceptional natural skincare products. Customers rave about their best-selling Q10 Freeze Hydro Essence Gel Mask. Ideal for a quick pampering session at home, the mask is formulated to boost hydration while leaving a supple, glowing look. For those looking for a quick escape, book an appointment at Mimone spa, which offers various services from manicures to massages. On our list is the Lymphatic Drainage Full Body Detox Treatment.
For those unfamiliar, a lymphatic massage offers impressive health benefits to relieve excess wastage, maintain proper blood circulation and encouraging the movement of lymph fluids around the body. It’s also excellent for improving cellulite, skin swelling and helps with post-exercise recovery. Choose between the 60 minutes (RM189) and 90 minutes (RM238) treatment. The procedure incorporates rhythmic strokes and light pressure to facilitate the lymphatic system. However, you can increase the pressure according to your liking.
The therapist combines a traditional massage with light, repetitive strokes while focusing on the stomach, back, legs, and arms. Once the treatment is done, your body will feel lighter, relaxed and relieved from the tightness. While each result may vary, we noticed a reduction in water retention in the stomach area and a massive energy boost the next day.
We recommend incorporating this beauty treatment into your monthly routine in 2022 to reset the body and mind.

Start by picking your mineral-rich crystalline powders: Iyashi for healing, Zen for calmness and Kirei for beauty.
