Spa Junkies, listen up!
Looking for a massage with a difference? I’ve got one for you. Have you heard of Lush, the wacky soap store? They have got a spa, and, you guessed it, it’s wacky too. But oh so scrumptious!
Life is not always chocolate, roses, warm cosy duvets and pink cotton candy... but it should be! The Comforter treatment makes sure you get all of that and more, and are left feeling delectable and ready to face the world. It’s a spa treatment like no other. I recently had it- this is how it went.
|The Comforter Treatment on a Plate|
The spa's welcome is warm and gracious, and you get taken down to their spa area which looks like a combination of an English country kitchen and your own cosy bedroom. The treatment room is lit by candles and soft pink lights, and you can already smell the cocoa scrub, which is being warmed gently over a bain-marie. The Comforter is massage and body scrub, so you’ll leave feeling not only fully relaxed but also deliciously exfoliated and thoroughly soft and moisturised. I love that! Not only do you get pampered, but you're doing something good for your skin too!
The scrub is a chocolaty body scrub full of ground aduki beans and tamarind, warm illipe butter and carob syrup. Applied to your body warmed, the ground aduki beans and tamarind gently exfoliate while the illipe butter deeply softens the carob syrup moisturises. Skin is left soft, smooth and deliciously scented.
After a unique rolling massage where they apply the scrub and take it off with mitts, they apply a hot body serum using a massage technique that feels like waves of moisture rushing over your body. The body serum is made with illipe butter, to deeply moisturize. Also with rose clay, to leave a matt finish on the skin - so you can put your clothes back on straight after the treatment and keep all that goodness in. You will feel it straight away.
Finally the serum brings a refreshing note with detoxifying limes to uplift you.
The atmosphere is far from the typical spa, largely in part due to the music that soothes and invigorates your senses. Forget the habitual nature sounds and meditation tunes your find in most spas, here you get contemporary pieces that have been remixed specifically to suit the aura of the treatment.
Once your done, you are offered a drink of sparkling elderflower and cotton candy, served in a martini glass! Pure fantasy! It really is just the cherry on top!
So to recap:
Go if… you have done the stereotypical massages dozens of times and are in the market for trying something new and uniquely different- a fun bit of fantasy.
Go when…you feel worn down, have the mean blues or if you’re just up for a little pick-me-up. Treat yourself!
You will feel… unwound, high-spirited, and completely soft and smooth to the touch!
