And this month, Daily Vanity has rounded up these extravagant facials that go above and beyond to give you a facial experience to remember – there’s even a number of special deals that you won’t want to miss!

Get a geisha-inspired facial at Ikeda Spa

Luxurious Facial Ikeda Spa

Odd and luxurious best describe Ikeda Spa‘s Geisha Organic Facial – it uses traditional organic Japanese ingredients such as rice bran, camellia oil, azuki red beans, peach moon water, and uguisu no fun, which translates to nightingale droppings.

Yes, you read that right – bird droppings on your face. Powdered nightingale droppings were said to used by the geishas and kabuki actors to counter the toxins left on their skin by their heavy white makeup, which traditionally contained zinc and lead. The unusual substance has also been found to have skin-conditioning and soothing benefits too.

Perfectly safe to use on the skin, the ingredient – which comes from nightingales that feed only on seeds and berries – is first sanitised with ultraviolet light exposure before being milled into a fine powder.

When combined with Ikeda Spa’s unique 300-stroke Japanese meridian massage technique in the facial, it removes all traces of dirt and bacteria while gently sloughing away dead skin cells and repairing UV damage to leave your skin baby-soft, smooth, and bright. Bonus: It’s great for sensitive skin as well!

For the ultimate pampering, enjoy the Geisha Organic Facial with a side of onsen bath! Made using hinoki, Japan’s most prized cypress wood, you’ll get to reap the soothing therapeutic and antibacterial benefits of the cypress oil released by the hinoki wood as you unwind after a long day.
