About two weeks ago i was invited to the opening of the new Decléor boutique and day spa in Westbourne grove, somewhere with all the indulgence of a spa break but with some treatments taking as little as 15 minutes.
Can we talk about how beautiful the exterior is? Honestly i’ve never seen such a beautiful shop front, you can already tell from the exterior that this is going to be a haven away from the streets of London. So beautiful in fact, i came back a few days after the opening to take this photo, it was raining on the day of the event so i couldn’t get a good photo – now that’s what i call blog dedication.
When i think of a spa i usually think of weekend retreats and getaways, which are great but aren’t always realistic for a time schedule or on your wallet. Decléor’s new day spa is bridging the gap between wanting to indulge in a treatment, without breaking the bank or having to pack a weekend bag.
The downstairs of the boutique offers an extensive range of face and body spa treatments, it’s a one stop shop for your beauty and relaxation needs, whether that’s a massage or a necessary leg wax.
If you’re pushed for time you can stop by the shop floor Sensorial Spa Bar, where you can experience a treatment from the face shot menu, with treatments costing only £15 and taking 15 minutes, i don’t know about you but i’ve never heard of a spa treatment from a luxury brand costing £15. Also the really cool thing about the face shot menu is that they film the treatment using a digital mirror, so you can be sent the video and recreate the treatment at home, and there’s nothing better than being able to recreate professional skincare in your own bathroom. Or you can recharge literally for 30-40 minutes in the recharge hub with the choice of 7 multisensory facials, sit back and the ceiling will change in front of your eyes.
As this is a Decléor boutique all of the treatments use products from the various Decléor face and body ranges, some of which i’ve been using for the last two weeks and my skin has been thanking me. You can also pop into the Decléor boutique to stock up on skincare, these are the products i’ve been loving lately:
They were engraving mini Aromessence Oil Serum’s at the event which makes my bottle even more special to use, anything personalised has my vote. If you’re a regular here you’ll know i’ve been expanding my facial oil collection lately and this has been a welcomed addition to the collection for day time use. This is 100% natural like many of Decléor’s products and a true aromatherapy experience, using this at home will leave you with glowing hydrated skin – just like you’ve finished a treatment in the day spa.
Cleansing is my favourite beauty ritual and these Decléor additions have been making me enjoy the process even more.
Micellar water has to be one of my favourite makeup removal methods, the Aroma Cleanse micellar water leaves my skin refreshed and clean without feeling stripped or dry ready for a second cleanse.
Even though the Aroma Cleanse cleansing milk can remove makeup, i’ve been using it as my second step or morning cleanser for a really gentle cleanse. I can’t believe how soft this leaves my skin, i hate feeling like a cleanser has just sucked the life out of me but this leaves my face feeling perfectly clean while keeping it hydrated.
Pink is my favourite colour so naturally the Aroma Cleanse Essential Tonifying Lotion was the product i reached for first, out of all of the cleansing products this has to be my favourite, it’s so hard to get toner right but this manages it. Toners can be really harsh but this is clarifying yet gentle and has the most amazing smell, my skin can react badly to a lot of toners but this didn’t bring out any redness or sensitivity so it’s a winner for me.
Thanks to my incredibly dry hands i like to think of myself as a bit of a hand cream connoisseur, at night i like to use really thick hand creams but i was yet to find one suitable for my handbag that i could apply during the day and actually still use my hands while wearing. (Most left me unable to pick things up with the greasiness.) This Decléor hand cream however has changed the game, it’s an incredibly light texture that is deceptively hydrating without leaving my hands slippery, the tiniest amount goes a long way and i can now successfully hydrate during the day and still use my hands bonus.
