I came across the LUX* ME range of spa products earlier in the year and was immediately impressed with the smart packaging and no-nonsense style. It tells it how it is. The Lemongrass and Marjoram Bath Oil is a heady mix of asian infused spicy oils which also includes peach, evening primrose, rose hip, peppermint, lavender and of course there is lemongrass and marjoram. You are instantly transported to a tropical island from the minute you pour the oil into a warm bath. Soak for half an hour – it’s bliss.
What I was most surprised about was my new-found love for the room spray. Give me a candle or reed diffuser – I’m there. But I’ve always associated room spray with air freshener and the rooms sprays I’ve tried up till now have been fake smelling, overly fragranced and really rather cheap. LUX* ME Mauritius Mango & Papaya Room Mist (how could you resist a name like that) is sweet-smelling and a true delight. It’s like opening the window and a tropical breeze blowing in. Mind you one spritz is enough for a standard sized room, a little goes a long way. I was really impressed how it freshens a room and brightens a dull day.
LUX* ME is the spa concept from the LUX* Resorts and Hotels – which you will find in the most glamorous of locations in the Maldives, Mauritius, Reunion and China. With a main base in Mauritius, the company has a light, bright attitude to hospitality and a real commitment to wellness. LUX* ME spa is all about personalisation with an integrated approach to wellbeing and it does it very well. and it takes it seriously too – the company launched a new Wellness Concierge service this year and it’s gone down a treat. I’m off to LUX* Le Morne and Bell Mare in October so will be able to report back first hand on the spa, but for now, it’s time to enjoy the spa products at home.
