This afternoon, I had made my way to The Pavillion, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur beside Starhill.
Why? It was because on Saturday night, I had gone to survey the Sothys roadshow in Bangsar that opened on Friday (23rd Oct). One of the bloggers, Jessying had earlier blogged about this event in her blog, and I thought it would be a good time to find out more information on this brand.
THE SOTHYS ROADSHOW (BANGSAR)
The Price? - RM278 for 1st Trial Promotion (NP Rm380), or RM330 including a Free Cleansing Kit worth RM153.
The New Intensive Treatment- the [C] Collagene Hyaluronique has 5 main phases including Exfoliation, Smoothing, Restructuring, Plumping, Lifting Mask, and finally, The Serum. It also came in packages of four and more treatments.
Its claims include "it may substitute dermato-aesthetic techniques for customers afraid of surgery, or in association with dermato-aesthetics techniques, as it acts on the general state of the skin and can help maintain the results of these techniques".
Jessying had also made an appearance to the roadshow an hour after my arrival.
THE SEVENTH HEAVEN
From my observation of both outlets, I much preferred the outlet in The Pavilion. It is located in The Seventh Heaven, which is actually the seventh floor of the shopping mall, and accessed through an external escalator.
The Seventh Heaven is an area that has been devoted to all beauty & lifestyle salons, being Slimming Sanctuary, Bizzy Body Platinum Ladies, Adonis Wellness, New York Skin Solutions, May Fair Plus, Mary Chia, Asterspring, some others that I can't remember their names, and of course, Sothys. I was surprised to find out that the Bizzy Body in The Pavillion actually offers whitening facials, and massages.. which has been pretty unheard of...
The fact that the salons in The Seventh Heaven were all open was surprising news to me, as most are normally closed on Sundays. I was greeted by the Sothy's Senior Beauty Specialist, Celine, who gave me the impression of being knowledgeable, and well-spoken.
Indeed, I was impressed by her manner of introducing the treatments, as well as her knowledge of the in-salon promotions as well as the other sothys-partner salons. Mostly, I appreciated her frankness and honesty in providing the information I required.
Most of the promotions on-going at the Bangsar outlets were on-going in the Pavilion outlet.
This includes the Sothys Origin Kit which retails for RM150 (including Sothys Membership, a complimentary Cooling Hydro Eye Treatment voucher worth RM90, RM50 cash voucher, Sothys Vanity Pouch and five travel size of their star products).
I would suggest to purchase the Origin Kit and try out the Cooling Hydro Eye Treatment that day itself (if vacancies are available) before going making an appointment to go for an actual facial another day. Of course, the redemption of the free treatment depends on its pertaining salon and its terms & conditions.

TANGS & PARKSONS
Apart from the Sothys outlet, I had also visited the Parksons Pavillion, as well as Tangs. Pavilion has two major anchor tenants being Tangs, and Parksons. I managed to procure a free sample of the REN 5ml Multi-Mineral Pore Minimising Detox Mask.
We parked nearby at the Standard Chartered building, right behind The Pavilion building.
Parking charges came up to RM3.50 per entry. This is valid ONLY on Sundays, Public Holidays, and after 1pm on Saturdays, with parking available to visitors from the 4th Floor onwards.
