After a foot soak, a full-body vanilla-scented scrub made of the pure white sand from Bora Bora, coconut shell, algo-monoi and sea salt is applied. The scrub is cleansed off with a Polynesian sacred oil which douses the skin with a moisture boost. The ritual is dusted off with a soothing aromatherapy massage and refreshing facial massage.
