My Sothys Malaysia Experience

8.02.2013

my history with Sothys Malaysia

I met Sothys Malaysia 6 years ago in 1Utama, it was this Parisian facial salon next to MPH bookstore called the 128 Faubourg, salon by Sothys. Little did I know that was their 3rd signature salon in Malaysia after Mont Kiara and Bangsar. I still remember the days where I peered into their window admiring the luxurious looking salon. Their facial promotions are always displayed at the entrance window, so I never missed the chance to study the interesting facials them have on promotion. The salon is also like a day spa where body treatments such as body wraps, massages, scrub can be enjoyed at the mall (especially during lunch time, if you're not hungry).

Sothys is a family born brand based on
philosophy of cure and treatment 

one of the prestigious beauty salons in Malaysia


warm, contemporary, luxury salon ambiance

products made & pack in France

limited edition seasonal facials anyone?

Skincare Solution Specialist (not therapists)
and the signature skinscope skin diagnosis

Then one fine day I decided to try their limited edition Rhubarb & Raspberry facial promotion. The facial uses active ingredients from rhubarb and raspberries to hydrate, nourished, and energized my skin. I enjoyed the relaxing fruity facial along with a relaxing massage, leaving me sleeping like a baby. When the facial was over, I was served with Raspberry tea! Talk about the whole experience.

What's the SkinScope? It's an exclusive skin diagnosis and expert consultation procedure performed by qualified aestheticians. Your skin age will be revealed and a personalize skincare regime will be advised to help you achieve your skin's optimum health while preserving your skin age.

developed by Sothys inspired by Mr. Bernard MAS

You know how each salon has it's own distinguishable differences from one another? I often tell my friends C uses plants, D are oil based and H uses marine minerals. I find thateasy to describe a salon's concept that way. For Sothys, it was plant and fruit based ingredients and they don't use machines, it's all fully hands on using a facial massage method called the digi-esthetique.

Specially developed to heighten the effectiveness of the treatments and the assimilation of active ingredients, the original Sothys technique combines Eastern and Western acupressure methods and massage procedures. It lies at the heart of Sothys programmes and boosts their extreme sensoriality by transforming each treatment into a moment of well being or the body and mind.

1946: Sothys founded by Dr. Hotz & he also created
the world's 1st biological concentrated serum ampoule!

1966: Mr.Bernard Mas acquired Sothys

notice the Egyptian Goddess symbol?

Here's a fun fact about Sothys! The name Sothys is actually the name of ancient Egyptians gave to the brightest star in the sky; she was perceived by the inhabitants of the land of Pharaohs as the jewel amongst jewels. Her brightness and her beauty fascinated men. During a heavenly night, Saturn met the young star Sothys; even Venus never seemed so beautiful. Their meeting was astonishing and Saturn was overwhelmed with passion for her; this threw the regular rhythm of the stars into confusion. Venus could not bear the fact she was not anymore the most beautiful star in the sky. She took her revenge and Sothys fell into the dark of the night and disappeared. Saturn cried over forty days and forty nights and flooded the Earth. During centuries, the world heard nothing about Sothys until the day when Sothys reappeared to deliver her secret to the Earth : she dedicated herself to women in order to preserve their beauty and happiness. As a tribute, Men venerated her as a Goddess.

While I have my facial treatments elsewhere now, Sothys is still one of my favorites to go. When friends asked for facial recommendation I would list out Sothys if they are looking for facial treatments with massages in a luxurious setting using plant or fruit based ingredients. After 6 years, I am happy to see that Sothys has grown bigger, better and more focus as a premium and prestigious salon in Malaysia catering to the many needs of women looking for a more holistic approach to facials.

Sothys For Her & For Him only salons

the only luxury men's salon I known so far

A recent recommendation I gave to my future cousin-in-law Nicholas from Canada (he's back here for visits) when he asked me where to go for facials (metrosexual man!). I tagged him to Sothys Malaysia Facebook where he could enjoy facials from 128 Faubourg For Him. A Sothys men only exclusive salon at Bangsar Village 2, Bangsar or Empire Shopping Gallery, Subang Jaya. It's very much more masculine like interior compared. Great seeing Sothys catering to the growing number of men who wants to look good too.

More information about Sothys can be found on Sothys Malaysia website. Leave a comment for me and a lucky reader will win a Sothys Micro-Peeling Gel 30ml (a Sothys Hero Product!) worth RM129 to experience Sothys at home.

  23. I learned about Sothys when I became a part of The Butterfly Project's community :) It was through the posts by our fellow butterflies of course! I have never tried any Sothys products so far, and I wish to be granted with the honor of enjoying the goodness of their products ^_^

  24. I heard of Sothys before, to me it is a very luxurious brand! Although I want to try Sothys products badly, but I am just a poor student. T.T Hopefully I can get to try Sothys products and facial treatment soon when I start to earn. =D

    ReplyDelete
  25. Never heard of Sothy before, but this post does intrigue me, such a luxurious brand that everyone want! I love they even have a research centre and a Sothy cafe, and institute somemore. Their range is so broad, and so convincing. The fact that Sothy from French is already really convincing =). Tammy, coz u test this before, did they put the parfum(fragrance) in their product? I am allergic to the product with parfum.

    ReplyDelete
  26. aaaaaaaaaaaaa. I just attended a Workshop by Sothys and their peeling gel is awesome! I was so tempted to buy the hydration serum :(

    ReplyDelete
  27. I must compliment you on your way of incorporating the history behind the Sothys brand and later, explaining on the facial treatments and products! Kudos to that, Tammy! ;D Heard and read a lot about Sothys but haven't yet tried their products. Maybe I could reward myself with a facial treatment someday for my Dean's List award for this semester! Tehee. Honestly, I acquired an info that our skin condition changes gradually and as if now, I am still confused of my skin type: whether it's acne prone or sensitive or combination or a mix of all that. I think I could use their SkinScope to identify the right products to use. Well,am also tempted to try Sothys Essential Daily Cleansing Milk & Lotion range (perhaps after knowing the right tange for my current skin condition).Would love to try out their micro-gel peeling. Would you the honour of rewarding me that, will you, Tammy? *winks*

    1. Hi Mazlina,

      Thank you so much for your compliments, it was a nice change talking about a brand's history. It does make you feel warmer towards the brand after getting to know its origins. I hope you get your Dean's List award so you can reward yourself with a Sothy's facial! Also you're right on the dot on the use of SkinScope to identify products suitable for your skin. I do wish to reward you with something for being so sweet! Thanks for leaving me such a awesome comment dear.

  32. Yup, heard of it but their products are too expensive so never got a chance to try.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I first knew about Sothys was when i got the Sothys body cream from cosmobox in April. At first i think it is quite like a facial saloon brand. That only the saloon people will use it. But i realize that it can be a non-saloon-user-friendly also. Then i developed some favourable impression towards it. I am looking forward to try out Sothys' other products.

    Thanks for giving us a chance to win Sothys' products!

  45. Hi Tammy, I came across your post while doing my research on the best facial salon. I frequently go to New York Skin Solutions in Empire Subang for my facial and I like the service and results so far. Well, I've never been to any facial before, the NYSS was my first time and signed up with them after the first session and I am on my second package. But now I need to upgrade my facial treatment to scar removal. I have oily and acne-prone skin, so all the facials I did so far was preliminary to prepare my skin for the next step. The NYSS has a really expensive package for the scar removal and due to certain reason, I think I need to compare what other facial salons can offer. I went to Murad and Asterspring already to enquire, and can conclude that Murad has a flexible facial package but you don't get the any discount as it works like prepaid service and their products are very expensive but still their scar removal is cheaper then the NYSS. Asterspring is about Murad's price plus you get some credit rebate which makes your total expenses to be much less (pay rm1800 get rebate rm3k). Problem is this involves a lot of money and I really want to make it worths every penny I spend. So by any chance, have you had any experience with those facial salons and how do you compare them with Sothys? Thanks.

  46. Many men are enjoying all of the benefits of a best safety razor blades that include more than the simple pleasure of feeling the luxurious warm lather on your face.

    ReplyDelete
  47. The safety razor is a very popular shaving tool. Though it is a old and traditional shaving tool, people choose it because of its having lots of advantages. Shaving with a safety razor can prevent razor burn and provide a closer and smoother shave with less irritation.
