Relaxing. I have tried for you the spa Cinq Mondes at La Samaritaine

Nestled in the heart of the Samaritaine in Paris, the Cinq Mondes Spa, entirely dedicated to beauty and well-being, offers to abandon oneself in complete serenity to the hands of spa therapists and facialists. I tell you here, my trial of the Ko Bi Do skin treatment.


When I went to the Samaritaine, passing the pedestrians and tourists of a day, I did not suspect that, nestled in a cocoon of greenery, the calm and the appeasement would immediately win me over. Indeed, far from the noise and the crowd, in the basement of the building, within the beauty area, the brand Cinq Mondes has set up a luxurious and comfortable spa. I tried it out.

A SPA haven of peace in a sumptuous setting


I was welcomed by Morgane in a very cozy lounge equipped with soft armchairs and chairs in colored velvet, wooden furniture and a boutique area where you can get the best treatments of the brand. The experience requires all the senses: after collecting my jewelry in a box provided for this purpose and crossing a bright blue corridor, in a Haussmanian style, Morgane invites me to move to the treatment rooms. These are equipped with the appropriate furniture, all in white and red (the brand’s color) with subdued lighting and a relaxing musical atmosphere.


The comfort is optimal and calls for relaxation. Further on, I see the hammam of the establishment.


Ko Bi Do, the flagship anti-wrinkle treatment of Cinq Mondes Spas


Today, I am testing the Ko Bi Do treatment, a treatment of Japanese origin, which stimulates circulation and promises to rejuvenate the skin. This redensifying Ko Bi Do Facial Massage treatment is an anti-aging treatment based on a technique that is known to this day as one of the most effective ways to prolong or restore the youthfulness of the face, neck and chest.

This skincare treatment follows five traditional phases: purification of the skin, toning of the facial muscles, lifting massage, hydration and finally the natural elimination of toxins. Thanks to Dermapuncture techniques, the skin is plumped up, and it shows!

And the Cinq Mondes brand has a reassuring reputation: excellent training of practitioners, techniques and treatments developed in agreement with experts in the medical and/or scientific field, commitment to safety, harmlessness and naturalness of the formulas … not to mention the brand’s commitment to sustainable development! In short, the Cinq Mondes spa is a real beauty case combining luxury and comfort.


A tailor-made well-being experience


Right from the start, we take into account my skincare treatment habits, my state of stress and my level of fatigue in order to determine what to do next. I am invited to choose a color that evokes well-being, then I lie down on the massage table (heated please!) which allows me to raise my chest and/or legs. After a breath accompanied by the practitioner, the treatment begins with a make-up removal, a water mist and an exfoliation.

The face massage is invigorating, I am asked if I am satisfied with the pressure. I leave my skin in the expert hands of the practitioner who alternates movements with rhythm. She then applies a mask that corresponds to the needs we discussed at the beginning of the treatment. During this time, I have the choice between a neck, foot or hand massage.


The treatment is coming to an end, but the practitioner ends it very gently, accompanying the breathing and the body, very relaxed after this moment of relaxation. The music, the smells and the soft lighted decor accompanied me during this interlude out of time. I feel my skin much more plump and soothed, I feel particularly well after this treatment. Even the subway couldn’t dampen my good mood and the positive effect I felt.
