Earlier this summer, the Poosh team had the opportunity to visit the new Korean spa, Pellequr, in Beverly Hills. Luxe doesn’t even begin to describe the experience at the gorgeous spa. At most Korean spas, women walk around the communal sauna rooms nude and enjoy a day’s worth of treatments like milk soaks, steaming, and a variation of scrubs—some even have lunch included.
The unique thing about Pellequr is its privacy and boutique-like setup. A-listers like Kim Kardashian West and Demi Moore are fans of the luxury location. Our editor, Michelle Scanga, is walking you through what it’s like to experience the top-notch, full-body treatment offered at the BH spa.
We received the Pellequr Signature scrub, which features the healing powers of Pellequr’s proprietary Phytocannabinoid Rich Hemp Oil. Once you arrive, you’re greeted with delicious rosewater served in Poosh-approved double-wall glasses while you unwind and wait for your massage therapist. You’re then guided to a private room with a padded table where you lie naked (wearing only disposable underwear). The Vichy Shower looks a little intimidating (see photo) because it has a movable overhead bar with eight showerheads.
The treatment begins by rinsing your whole body with nice warm water, and then the scrub is applied. After the product is rubbed all over your body, the technician uses the spa’s Korean Italy Towel to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. Once she scrubbed my entire body, she let me feel all the residue and it was truly shocking how much dead skin was removed. Gross but great at the same time because you know it’s working.
After all the dead skin is rinsed off, the technician performs a short full-body massage using hemp oil, followed by a scalp massage and hair wash. The whole treatment takes 75 minutes and leaves your skin incredibly rejuvenated and silky smooth.
The main benefit of the full-body scrub is improved skin texture (which you’ll feel immediately). Other benefits include relaxation, reduction of toxins, alleviated stress, skin hydration, lymphatic drainage, and improved mood.
While you can’t perform this level of treatment without the Vichy Shower, you can recreate parts of the experience at home by buying exfoliating gloves (or towel) and applying a clean body scrub. Next, use a scalp scrub to promote healthy hair growth (these are our picks). End your DIY treatment by using a CBD-infused oil (or traditional body oil) to lock in moisture to your freshly sloughed skin.
