Spa InterContinental is a stylish urban retreat located on the 1st Floor of the InterContinental London Park Lane that recently launched a range of men’s “Pit-Stop” treatments designed by non-other than the Grooming Guru himself – Lee Kynaston.
The “Pit-Stop” treatment menu delivers a range of fast, effective and fuss-free treatments exclusively for men. They aren’t repackaged facials for women; the treatments have all been uniquely created to address the specific needs of men and male skin.
Spa InterContinental is comprised of five treatment rooms and an additional VIP treatment suite suitable for couples and private parties. There are no water or hydro facilities – but the reception area is like a fabulous cocktail lounge – the only difference – you drink herbal tea.
Elemis, OPI, GHD and Australian Bodycare
I chose the Instant Energizing Treatment after enduring a week of poor sleep and to be honest was looking a little worse for wear. I certainly felt pretty damn rough – so there was a lot of expectation riding on this.
My therapist checked out my skin and decided I needed Pro-Collagen – perhaps due to my *cough* age and the fact I have spent a lot of time in the sun. I got a 40-minute energising facial designed to invigorate tired, dehydrated skin, boost circulation and eliminate the signs of tiredness. All well and good and it did exactly what it said. What impressed me even more was part 2 – a 20-minute session enveloped in a special dry flotation bed that promises the ultimate power nap. It’s like being in a water bed with your clothes on. They say a 20 minute session is equivalent to 4 hours of sleep. Not so sure about that – but it was definitely revitalising and I did feel energised afterwards.
THE BEST BITS:
- Having a treatment designed just for men
- Sleeping in the dry floatation bed
- Showering with Elemis Sharp Shower Gel (I’m easily pleased)
