At the beginning of July, I was invited to the New Park Manor hotel spa opening day. I took my nan along with me. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco, and a choice of cupcake with either vanilla or strawberry icing. Thumbs up to whoever baked those cakes I have to say!
During the time we were there, we got given a tore around the spa facilities, including the treatment rooms – along with a testing product experience, as well as a view of the pool, and outdoor hot tub/relaxation area. Nan and I also received a 15 minute treatment which was relaxing. We also got given a goodie bag before we left, everybody loves a free goodie bag! Inside included a few samples of different skin care products. New Park Manor Spa specialise in using products specifically by Elemis. Which is a well known and very popular skin care brand.
The Elemis sweet orchid body cream.
BENEFITS: Hydrates, Nourishes, Soothes.
‘The orchid body cream is an everyday cream that intensely nourishes and hydrates whilst enveloping the body in its divine fragrance. It is scented with notes of Oriental Orchid, sweet vanilla, aromatic Santalum and refreshing citrus. Its key ingredients are Japonica, Mauve buttterfly orchid, and japanese stone orchid.’ The light weight cream leaves my dry skin feeling replenished and silky smooth after one use. A little goes a long way, and the fragrance is perfect for summer even if it is quite strong, but its not over powering.
Nourishing Omega-Rich cleansing oil.
BENEFITS: Cleanses, Soothes, Softens.
‘The nourishing cleansing oil soothes, softens and lifts impurities without stripping the skin. Blended with over 90% natural oils, the clinically proven cleansing oil has been formulated to ensure it maintains the skins delicate acid mantle. With Winter Rose oil, rich in Omega-9, and skin-conditioning Chia seed it effectively removes make up whilst maintaining the skins natural barrrier. Vitimin-rich Pomegranate ensures that the skin is left looking healthy and radiant. Its Key ingredients are Chia seed oil, Rose, and Pomegranate.’ I have very sensitive and sometimes quite blemished prone skin and getting it clean, nourished and calm can be a challenge – but not with his oil! Although I have only used a small sample it was a pleasure to use and i noticed how my skin was more hydrated and calm already. It doesn’t leave an oily residue on my fingers after applying it and is so easy to apply.
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
BENEFITS: Firms, Smoothes, Hydrates.
‘The anti – ageing ingredients of Pro-Collagen Marine cream have been shown to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin firmness and hydration within 15 days. The unique Mediterranean algae, Padina Pavonica has been shown to dramatically increase the quantity of glycosaminologycans (GAGs) within the skin. By special cell communication, these water attracting GAGs are responsible for skin moisturisation, improving suppleness firmness and elasticity. In adDition, Ginkgo Biloba providing superior free radical protection has been blended with precious Rose and Miose Absolutes, thus creating the ultimate anti-ageing cream for ELEMIS.’
Also in the goodie bag, was a Jessica nail varnish and a nail file. I don’t wear nail varnish very often, especially bright colours, but this one is perfect for summer.
I hope by reading some info on Elemis products has caught your interest as I seriously do recommend – They can be a little pricey, but definitely worth it.
