Today was quite a day for me – and for the lovely team at the Spa InterContinental at The InterContinental Park Lane – because it was the official launch of the new range of men’s treatments we’ve been collaborating on.
As I said in my initial post about the project my real aim was to create treatments I’d actually like to have myself. Part of the deal, of course, was that I got to try them out too. As someone who’s not been all that keen on treatments in the past this was the biggest challenge. And yet, now that the collaboration has reached its climax, I find myself a total convert.
If you get chance to try any of the treatments highly recommend the Pre and Post-Business “Pit-Stops”, the Instant Energizer and Instant Relaxer (perfect for frequent travelers) and the Invigorating Back Treatment, which I was lucky enough to have just yesterday. Each is performed using Elemis products – one my favourite skincare ranges – and the smell of essential oils like lime, lavender and rosewood is a treat in itself.
As today was the official launch, the Spa had a whole host of journalists and bloggers in to sample what’s on offer and each left with a great selection of Elemis products to play with at home too. I really hope they enjoyed the treatments as much as I have.
Much of the enjoyment that’s come from this project has been is down to Radhika, the Spa Manager with whom I’ve worked closely, and her amazing team (pictured with me above) who are superbly professional without ever being stuffy. They really are some of the nicest therapists I’ve ever come across – and I’ve sampled a few that would terrify Voldemort. So good are they that they’ve even managed to rid me of my greatest spa fear of all – the notorious paper pants. In fact, I may even buy myself a box.
Treatments range from £65 to £180. For more information or to book one call +44 (0)20 7409 3131 or click here.
