Sense of Touch is a calming oasis of pampering and pleasure in the middle of Lan Kwai Fong. But why take our word when you can see it for yourself?
On the evening of August 16 – that’s Wednesday, a week from now – Sense of Touch has two extraordinary events, combining a manicure, make-up and wine tasting. The drinks are kindly provided by LKF’s own Flying Winemaker and the make-up by Swedish brand Idun Minerals – more on both of these sponsors later.
The 90-minute sessions at the spa’s flagship location are scheduled for 6pm to 7.30pm, and 7.30pm to 9pm. For the nice price of just HK$250, guests can luxuriate in a petit manicure, have their make-up done and enjoy a wine tasting. For HK$550, it’s the same treatment and service, plus an Idun Minerals lipstick to take with you. Guests will also receive vouchers from Sense of Touch and The Flying Winemaker, and an Idun Minerals product credit.
You may not have heard of Idun. Developed in Sweden by a team of scientists and skin experts, the cosmetics are a full colour make-up line based on pure mineral formulations. The brand name comes from the old Norse Goddess of Eternal Youth who kept a box of magic apples that she shared with other gods to keep them young.
The line targets the health conscious, with ingredients that are simple and free of nickel, chrome, and microorganisms. There’s no talc, oils, silicones, fragrances, bismuth oxychloride, nanoparticles or parabens. The cosmetics are cruelty- and toxin-free.
The Flying Winemaker – television presenter and winemaker Eddie McDougall – is increasingly known for his ceaseless promotion of Asian wine culture and The Urban Project label. The Urban Label wines are made from the best possible grapes selected from anywhere around the world, made at the now closed 8th Estate Winery and aged in Hong Kong.
One of the four, Sampan, won an award in the Old World Red Wine Below HK$100 category at the Restaurant and Bar Hong Kong House Wine Awards last year.
