Spa is always an exciting place for new retail launches and the last few months has seen some great ones. Here, The Spa Man picks his favourites.
Sothys Travel Kit
Ideal for exotic escapes or city breaks, Sothys has launched a new Travel Kit that’s ideal for the spa traveller. Offering a taste of Sothys signature products, the Travel Kit contains everything the international traveller needs for the face and body whilst away. Small, light and featuring an essential combination of products, they are presented in a handy reusable clear plastic wallet that is ideal for in-flight carry-on hand luggage. The Travel Kit contains mini sizes of Sothys Morning Cleanser, Hydradvance Light Hydrating Cream, Cherry Blossom and Lotus Escape Shower Cream, Conditioning Shampoo and Hydra-nourishing Body Lotion.
Purexpert is a new unisex skincare concept from Germaine de Capuccini that introduces a 1-2-3 step programme delivering a smooth, clean skin free of imperfections, premature wrinkles and dilated pores. Formulated with natural ingredients and tailor-made to the needs of oily, normal and combination skin, Purexpert relies on three steps: cleanse, to achieve pure and matt skin; renew which is essential for eliminating dead cells and hydrate, to restore the skin’s smooth, healthy appearance.
Purexpert includes a new spa treatment and nine homecare products for oily, normal or combination skin that establish healthy skin routines for clients in treatment and at home.
12 hour moisture
Promising long-lasting hydration, a burst of freshness and an ultra-soft texture, Phytomer Hydracontinue 12h Moisturizing Flash Gel is a one stop shop for dry, dehydrated skin. Presented in a dropper bottle, the research and scientific team claim that one drop is enough. Boosted by unique Phytomer ingredients, Weaving Algae helps to restructure the skin’s water reserves to prevent dehydration. Pheohydrane helps to restructure the skin’s barrier and trap water in the tissues which is supported by a new complex of moisturising molecules. Multi-use and multi-functional, it can be used alone, underneath skin creams or mixed with them for supreme hydration.
Scrubbed to perfection
Skin-nourishing, exfoliating and hydrating, the new body scrubs from Elemis feature its’ signature frangipani fragrance for an at-home spa treat, every day. Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow effectively exfoliates with hibiscus and salt, whilst coconut oil nourishes and hydrates the skin. It’s infused with Tahitian Monoi oil and frangipani flowers for an added taste of the exotic. In addition, the new Elemis Skin Nourishing Body Scrub gently exfoliates with natural ingredients like rice, Bora Bora sand, bamboo, apricot and cherry powder whilst it hydrates and nourishes the skin with almond, macadamia and wheat germ. The two scrubs transform dry, dehydrated skin in an instant.
