I was recently invited down to London for the launch of what sounds to be an awesome new spa experience from the Macdonald hotel chain. Sadly the pesky old day job got in the way so I was unable to attend but the lovely people at Decleor sent me a sample of their Relax Intense Fruit Seed Scrub to try… with a review to follow soon!
I’ve stayed at the Macdonald Holyrood hotel in Edinburgh numerous times and I absolutely love the place and other hotels in their chain certainly do not disappoint. If you get the chance to check out this treatment, I strongly urge you to.
I know I am ready to experience it, booked up for Pay Day!
Exclusive ‘Paradise Escape’ with Decléor
Journey from the Sunshine State, home of the Orange Blossom,
to the Avenue of the Baobabs in Madagascar
Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, the largest privately owned hotel groupin the UK, has introduced its ‘Paradise Escape’ signature treatment across its Spa Collection nationwide.
Available at the hotel group’s 24 Spa Harmony & Serenity locations (from February 2012), this exotic spa experience is an incredibly decadent and relaxing face and body treatment created to provide the ultimate ‘dayscape’ or overnight ‘spacation’.
Inspiration from Paradise
Developed by Cosmetic Aromatherapy experts, Decléor, the spa journey begins with a full body exfoliation using the seeds from the Madagascan fruit known as a Boabab. This powerful fruit has six times more vitamin C than one orange and is grown from trees that are 80% water and live for over 100 years. When applied topically, its intense properties smooth and rejuvenate tired skin. The journey continues with a beautiful expert massage using warm body balms drizzled over the legs and the back with the aid of Decléor’s unique natural massage tool, the Acacia Massager. This innovative tool enables the therapist to work deeply across the whole body, hands and feet to effectively relieve muscular aches and tension.
A gentle facial massage follows using an exceptional elixir of Orange Blossom, the national flower of the sunshine state Florida. With numerous benefits, the Orange Blossom helps to restore the skins youthful glow by aiding skin cell regeneration, works to normalise enlarged pores and is an effective sebum balancing remedy for dry and oily skin conditions.
Whilst the warming face mask cocoons and nurtures the skin, the treatment is completed with more massage to the legs, feet, hands, arms and shoulders easing every ounce of tension from the body to leave you feeling like you have escaped to Paradise.
