My Shopping Experience at HARNN + My Five HARNN Favorites!
A few weeks ago, I was invited by Harnn to visit their flagship store in Glorietta 5. The first time I stepped into the place, it was like I was transported to a spa all of a sudden: The mellow lighting, amber- colored wooden cabinets, and the lingering scent of exotic flowers in the air-I have immediately forgotten about the intense temperature that day and my aching feet when I was inside the store!

What and who is Harnn? Paul Harnn is an architect based in Thailand who's known for his talent in architecture. Founded by Harnn himself, the brand started out as a premium, heritage spa in Thailand. Mr. Harnn's talent for design is reflected very well in his spas that's why it has bagged numerous awards over the years. To date, the spa has branches across Asia and the exclusive Harnn products are being distributed globally.
Harnn's products are free from mineral oil, Paraben, sulfates, and are made from 100% natural ingredients. Take for example, their Jasmine Bath and Body Collection: It takes about 2 tons of Jasmine flowers to come up with a liter of Jasmine essential oil for this collection alone. It's a premium brand and price range starts at P500.00 for the soaps and P800.00+ for the other bath and body products.
The store in Glorietta 5 may seem small, but 'tis very spacious, the design is so clean, and I love how they organized the products: it is very easy to navigate through the collections and even if the brand carries a lot, you don't get overwhelmed. That's the power of good design!

The best- seller in the Philippines, apparently, is the Oriental Herbs collection and I couldn't agree more. It smells so fragrant and uniquely exotic that you won't find any product that smells like it. It smells beautiful, actually.
The freshest release is the extensive Water Lily Face Care range that utilizes Water Lily extracts to soothe, hydrate, and stall the signs of aging.
Harnn believes that in order to achieve genuine beauty, one must always be in a state of well- being, thus they offer all- natural premium teas too.
If you wish to have a more personalized experience in the spa, grab one of their premium bath and massage oil blends and bring it with you!
They have travel- sized versions of some of their best- sellers…
…and gift sets as well.
Now let's go to my top five picks that you may consider purchasing when you visit Harnn:
1. Oriental Rose Hair Oil Treatment
As you all know, oil takes out oil and I think this is a good deep conditioning alternative in lieu of silicone and wax- based hair masks. It smells like a rose garden and that's what I utterly love about it!
2. Oriental Herbs Lotion
Luxuriously creamy, but gets absorbed easily and leaves skin with a healthy sheen. Scent is a little strong, but very energizing! It really smells good that you have to visit Harnn to experience what I'm talking about. :)
3. Aromatherapy Ball
One thing that got me real curious is this product-it's like a traditional 'hot compress' to me. It's made with dried herbs and wrapped in katcha. To use it, you soak it in hot water for a few minutes and then you press it onto the aching parts of your body. I'm excited to try this product!
4. Oriental Herbs Salt Body Polish Oil Gel
My favorite bath treat lately. It's a super luxurious salt scrub that's very easy to rinse and non- messy to use.
5. Votive Candles and Reed Stick Fragrance Diffusers
- I'm sure you all know me too well by now, and you know that fragrant candles are some of my favorite luxuries in life! Harnn's got some good scents for their candles and fragrance diffusers-I got one candle, the one with the blue label. :)
Pricing for the products is just right in my opinion as Harnn doesn't only offer to beautify your skin, but also a sensorial bathing experience that's distinctly Asian. The collections have their very own appeal: when you take a whiff of their products, you don't just smell 'floral', 'woods' or 'herbs', but rather you're taken to a journey into the rich and colorful culture of Thailand, which is another thing that I like about the brand because it shows that they have their own identity.
