Precious Pampering

Mindfulness and massage are fused in concert at The Spa at Trump Waikiki, where the first question posed to those experiencing its signature Gem-stone Treatment is: “What are your wellness intentions?”

“It’s based on how you want to feel when you leave,” says spa supervisor Bridgette DeVore.

Upon entering the spa, guests are invited to choose from one of five intentions. Whether you are in search of calm, healing, purifying, revitalization or balance is entirely up to you. From that point, every aspect of treatment – from the tea served, to oil and music selections used during massage – is based on that intention.

Although it would seem difficult to choose from such an enticing menu, DeVore says the choice is usually easy.

“If people come in frenzied, they usually want to calm or heal. If they need perking up before a big meeting, they usually want to revitalize,” she notes.

In true Trump style, the Gemstone Treatment utilizes precious gem-infused oils (custom blended in Dubai), which contain diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires. Each stone’s color and physical properties complement a variety of intentions: Blue sapphire is used in calming rituals, while purifying emeralds are used for lymphatic drainage and detoxification.

The luxurious treatments take place in private rooms, each equipped with a soaking tub or shower for further relaxation following a massage. Treatments run 90 minutes and cost $260. To make an appointment, call (808) 683-7467.

Secret Serum Hits The Runway

If you’ve admired the bright lights bouncing off the sleek tresses of celebrities such as Cindy Crawford, Marion Cotillard, Amanda Seyfried, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Carrie Underwood, chances are you’ve already been introduced to Moroccanoil – the buzz of runways and red carpets.

The source of this highly coveted serum is a proprietary oil-infused formula that manages to permeate the hair shaft, resulting in a coif that’s visibly lustrous and smooth to the touch.

Vitamin E-rich oil comes from the edible part of the nut (found within the fruit) of the argan tree that grows solely in Morocco. It’s in these harsh desert climes that the substance has been held in high regard by Berber women for its nutritive and medicinal properties.

Eleven products for men and women range from the original Moroccanoil Treatment to Luminous Hairspray and an Intense Hydrating Mask.

For the Guys

Why subject your beloved to injury from rough whiskers when you can tame that stubble with a few drops of Decleor Paris Men’s Essentials Aromessence Triple Action Shave Protection Serum?

The name is unwieldy, but the serum works simply, by harnessing the power of essential oils of clove and eucalyptus to soften skin and raise ingrown hairs before shaving. Not only does it make the task easier, it’s ideal for those with a sensitive mug.

Here’s an inside tip: Applying a few drops post-shave also can help reduce skin irritation.
