Following my lovely facial at Elemis Day Spa, I was lucky enough to be invited to check out their latest range of new products – the Sp@Home body-care range and the Starlight Collection of fabulous Christmas gift sets.
The launch was held in a model apartment (complete with fake views!) in Tai Koo Shing and the place had been piped through with Elemis’ trademark scrumptious scents! We were introduced to the complete Sp@Home range, which includes 13 brand new products alongside old Elemis favourites (but in swish new packaging), and got to sample a few for good measure too!
Sp@Home – designed to bring luxurious spa results into your daily life and totally free of nasties like parabens, artificial colours and silicones – is divided into five handy categories to fulfil all your skincare desires! Body Exotics includes ten of Elemis’ most indulgent products (like their Frangipani Monoi and Camellia Oils) and all smell divine; Body Awaken is all about revitalising and energising, thanks to invigorating ingredients like thyme, sweet orange and mango; Body Performance is a unisex range designed for body-sculpting, detoxing and fitting into your fitness regime and Body Anti-Ageing is full of collagen-packed products to keep those wrinkles at bay.
However, my favourite was the Body Soothing range and, targeted at de-stressing, nourishing and relaxing, I think it will be many others’ favourite too! Firstly, there’s LOADS of lavender in this line, which is absolutely one of my favourite scents and perfect for getting me into that peaceful frame of mind. Secondly, there are lots of really neat new products to play with – the Quiet Mind Temple Balm is handbag-sized and ideal for keeping in the office and whipping out at particularly hectic moments for a quick soothing rub on your pressure points. Similarly, the Quiet Mind Room Mist is a really light but lovely scent that infuses its way around the room and makes you feel calmer and more serene with just a few spritzes!
Meanwhile, the Treat Your Feet Foot Cream is an intensely moisturising, shea butter and jojoba-oil packed cream that boasts amazing user feedback (98% users felt that their skin was noticeably softer) – and as my dry manky callused feet attest, I have been searching for a good foot cream for ages!
The Starlight Collection… well, I think the pictures say it all. Christmas gift sets are my absolute weakness and more invariably end up in my own shopping bag than as presents for others, but trust me when I say ANY lady (or gent) would be happy to receive these come December 25th! The sets are totally luxe, well thought-out, can save you up to 50% on buying products individually and are just generally freakin’ fabulous.
The starburst-embossed toiletry bags and vanity cases (I’m crossing my fingers for either the dove grey one in Rejuvenating Stars, the periwinkle one in Stars Of Spa or the charcoal grey one in the Jewels Of Elemis sets!) are practically worth the price alone, never mind all the lush Elemis goodies you get stuffed inside! Expect to see these filtering into shops in October and be warned, these babies sell out fast!
I received the Treat Your Feet Foot Cream and the Revitalise Me Shower Gel in my goodie bag so expect to see reviews for those soon!
Also in my goodie bag was a $300 voucher off any Elemis Spa treatment – and out of the goodness of my own heart, I have decided to give it away TO YOU. Well, one of you anyway!
So here’s the bit most of you are interested in… the give-away! A few terms and conditions first: the voucher is valid until the 31st October, cannot be used on Saturdays or in conjunction with any other promotions and is available at either the Elemis Day Spa in Central, the Beautiful Skin Centre in Admiralty or the Victorian Spa at Disneyland (I have been assured Mickey Mouse will not turn up as your masseuse, promise!).
