As a fan of both OSIM and massage, I did a little dance at the wonderful news of being invited to experience OSIM’s new massage chair, the uLove白马王子 按摩椅, at their media preview and private event. I was full of curiosity as to why it’s called “白马王子”, or “Prince Charming” in English. Surely a massage chair can’t be romantic, or princely, like what we would have imagined from fairy tales?
The global Ambassador for OSIM uLove is none other than International star Fan Bingbing, whom I’ve grown to love and enjoy watching her dramas such as mega-hit TV series, Empress of China. She is also a fashion icon who has graced many red carpets, movie premieres and fashion shows. Most amazingly, she topped the Forbes China Celebrity 100 list in 2013, 2014 and 2015, after ranking in the top 10 every year, since 2006. What an inspirational figure!
Here’s what Fan Bingbing has to say about uLove, “OSIM uLove serenades me with alluring music and romances my senses with the most wonderful touch. I never imagined a chair could make me feel so good, so relaxed and yet so invigorated! uLove…it is truly a massage gem and I absolutely love spending time on it!”
Indeed, OSIM uLove is a cut above other massage chairs, with its striking design, ultra-luxurious fittings, new massage features and superior sound system. It cuts an impressive sight, with its lush contours and plush leather fittings made with the finest perforated quilting, and chrome finishing. It also has an immersive audio system allows you to play your favourite songs on a smartphone or iPod!
Sounds like a massage designed in heaven! But nothing beats a personal testimonial of sitting on the uLove for a real-life touch and feel of it all. And just before the magical (half) hour came, we were treated to a beautiful dessert table, and an introduction to Neal’s Yard Remedies for the ultimate sensory experience. Love the romantic, sensual and floral theme of the event!
So much goodies and canapes, we were so spoilt by the organisers! Not to mention how pretty the set-up and decor are 🙂
Even the beverages were thoughtfully curated for the event! I love the blue Cupid’s Cup and Flirtini!
And it’s Photobooth Time with the girlies!
As you can see, it was a night full of pretty flower petals and we had so much fun scattering them around for pictures and Boomerangs!

Neal’s Yard Remedies had set up a booth at the venue for us to experience their organic and natural health and beauty products such as essential oils, bath, face and body products, herbal teas and even books! Their aromatherapy range, in particular, will be so perfect when used together with the OSIM massage chairs. I can imagine the level of relaxation and calmness the combination will bring me 🙂
Everest trying out the products and choosing her favourite scent!
Guess which one I got? The eucalyptus one, of course! Really into the anti-stress range recently, because the scents really help me to unwind and relax. Ash got the Rosemary mixed with Lavender, also from the stress-relieving series.
According to some studies, aromatherapy can even help to boost job performance and productivity, as smell is the strongest of the senses and is best able to influence brain activity, emotions and learning processes. Essential oils also have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, and having them in the environment helps to keep germs at bay. A simple inhalation of an aroma can activate the immune system, affect blood pressure and stimulate digestion. All that benefits our bodies and improves our health, why not?
After the reception, our hosts for the night began the event proper and got us all anticipating what was in store for us next – the Experience Zone. Like VIPs, we were chaperoned in a pompous manner into what seemed like a “massage theatre”, where each of us laid in our very own OSIM uLove, with personal blankets and assistants. Once we were all relaxed into the chairs, the amazing 30-minute massage began, with beautiful, dreamy music in a surround-sound system. The whole time we were in darkness, and I felt like I was transported into another world as the massage soothed away the aches and knots in my body.
The first session of the massage, before another program was initiated, focused more on my shoulders, upper back, head and neck. The second was more on the hips, lower back and back to the shoulders and head. Personally I felt that the massages were very very close to human massage techniques. So what made the massage so unique and out-of-this-world?
A really good massage means to have every part of one’s body totally destressed and relaxed. OSIM uLove fits the bill, with 720 degree roller balls that intimately rolls along every contour of your body, V-Hand Massage to extract deep-seated knots and Long Track massage technology for a most far-reaching massage that satisfies like no other massage, for the ultimate sense of well-being. In Fan’s words, “it’s hard not to fall asleep, with the exquisite massage pampering of a gentle lover”.
The Lifestyle Zone was where we were shown the 4 desirable uLoves, which were indeed luxurious and majestic in design. Their main bodies were upholstered in quilted and modern weave inspired leatherette. The overall design element speaks of excellent craftsmanship of form and functionality, exuding style, elegance and versatility to grace any modern living space.

To me, the unique selling point of the uLove is its V-Hand 3D Massage with 720 degrees Roller Balls and Long Track Massage. These features gave me a very satisfying massage and I had emerged from the 30 minute session feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and agile. The uLove provides a head-to-toe pampering that I know I need on almost a daily-basis, as I get stressed out easily and like most people, I really love a good massage that relieves tension from my body and gives me a good night’s sleep. The second great thing about uLove is its dreamy music that instantly signals “rest and relaxation time”! Drop those worries and stresses now!

Fan shared “I never pass on a good massage as it can do wonders for your mental and physical health. With uLove, I’m spoilt as now I get my daily dose of massage and pampering in the comfort of home. Before the massage, I simply brew a cup of soothing honey drink, apply a hydrating mask, settle onto uLove and let the music and massage melt my cares away. The feeling is pure bliss.”
Guess we can all pick up this excellent tip from her!
I’m totally agreeing with the beautiful Chinese actress, producer and singer, who manages to look beautiful and radiant all the time despite balancing an extremely hectic schedule. Her secret? Massage and hydration, of course. For me, the intimate half-hour bliss with uLove was the highlight of the event, and I slept like a happy baby that night – a wonderful consequence from the glorious massage from paradise.
