Curve Salon – tried and tested

We try the Anti-pigmentation Facial and Signature Massage at Curve Salon in Dubai

The promise
Reduced pigmentation in my skin and all-over relieved tension from the stresses and strains of the week.

Step by step

The decor is bright and airy thanks to white and beige fixtures. But it does feel a little greenhouse-hot in the centre of the salon which is surrounded by glass. Staff are very friendly as they invite us into the massage room. We would have hoped for more privacy to change as the therapist lingered around and left the door slightly open to a reception full of guests on the other side.
The massage is incredible though with the perfect firm pressure. We nod off several times. We're made to feel cosy as the therapist tucks us in for our facial. She is gentle with her movements makes sure we have enough refreshments.

The result

Our skin feels soft on our face and we look fresher after the Curve Signature Facial. We’re relaxed for the rest of the day after having our muscles and limbs loosened up during the Curve Signature Massage.

Pros

• The staff are very attentive and want to make sure you’re looked after and feel like a superstar.

Cons
• The walls are incredibly thin and it’s hard to relax with sounds around constantly disturbing us.
• No one explained what was coming next or being done during the facial which included plenty of going from hot to cold temperatures with hot steam, cold face masks and painful (but probably very necessary) extractions.
