KICK-START SUMMER: PART II- Neal’s Yard Remedies Detox
Neal’s Yard Remedies has a fabulous Spring Detox Package, down from £140 to £95 at the moment- so book in quick. Fashionbite popped down to the Neal’s Yard Remedies Spa store on the Kings Road, London, last week to try it out.
Here are my thoughts..
DETOXIFYING BODY TREATMENT
My first treatment was a detoxifying body scrub. The therapist was fantastic and explained everything thoroughly, so you knew exactly what was coming up next. I started the treatment with a cup of Beautiful Skin tea, which was lovely- really fruity, you can buy it from the Neal’s Yard Remedies store above the Spa rooms.
My therapist then used a body brush to scrub away any dead skin from all over my body and massaged in exfoliator to really get the blood pumping. I love the fact that throughout the entire two and a half hour treatment, evey product used is Neal’s Yard Remedies, which not only smells amazing but is completely organic and natural- so you feel you’re putting goodness on your body as well.
Once I was scrubbed and pumeled, I headed to the detox sauna. I showered up and lay in a sauna-style room for 15 minutes. The room felt like a sauna but didn’t have the stifling heat that goes with it. Relaxing music was piped into the room and I lay back in the heat dreaming of summer…
I then headed back to the treatment room for probably one of the best back/shoulder massages I’ve ever had- it was AMAZING! Using lymphatic massage, which helps your body drain itself of unwanted toxins-great for detoxing, she put me in an almost coma-like state of relaxation. I’ve had difficulty sleeping recently and find it difficult to switch-off, but this massage absolutely did the trick.
ORGANIC SIGNATURE FACIAL
After the massage, I was treated to a wonderful organic facial which completely refreshed and revitalised my deydrated skin. I was cleansed, steamed, scrubbed and blocked pores were extracted. Then, whilst I relaxed under a lovely, fruity face mask, the therpist massaged my head and shoulders.
After the whole package, I felt amazing- my body had been scrubbed, massaged and cleansed from head to toe. I slept brilliantly that night and my skin was soft and smooth for days after.
If you fancy treating yourself, it’s well worth the money and for two and a half hours it’s great value at £95. It’s also the perfect present for someone who’s really into their organic products, I know my brother’s girlfriend would love it!
