COWSHED SPA, CARNABY LONDON
But in my case, it’s for glowing skin, and the best moisturiser for eternal youth…
While you wait for me to enlighten you, it is possible to achieve goddess-like, Jennifer Lopez skin with makeup, however, I have discovered the most amazing facial which will give you a luminous glow from within, The Cowshed Skin Perfecting Facial.
The Cowshed Skin Perfecting Facial is an all-in-one anti-ageing facial treatment for a firmer, brighter, and smoother complexion. It starts with a cleanse, steam, and exfoliation, followed by a facial yoga massage to stimulate blood flow, and finished off with the application of the Cowshed Anti-Ageing Perfecting Serum, which I am currently testing out (review coming soon).
Even for me, this is pretty indulgent, but the other day, I looked in the mirror, and didn’t even recognise myself! My holiday glow had disappeared, whilst my regular routine of my hectic London lifestyle had started to sink in – a 3 hour daily commute, lack of sleep, and also a three week flu, had left me feeling drained of energy, and actually quite sad.
I had the facial on Wednesday night at the Carnaby Spa, which is a perfect Central London location for those wishing to escape Oxford Circus for a quick manicure, facial, massage, or even a nice cup of tea and cake. For me, it was 20 minutes away from my phone, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp. Heaven!
The whole experience was so great. I was greeted by my super friendly facialist, who offered me a cup of tea before I started my treatment. The candlelit room (Cowshed products of course!) was so soothing, and tranquil, allowing me to slip away from my troubles, and to-do-lists. The massage itself was beautiful, she used all Cowshed products to cleanse my face, and neck, steamed my face with a hot towel, and gave me the most amazing massage. I would tell you which products she used, but I was so relaxed, I didn’t care to ask! Sorry! I do know she used the Anti-Ageing perfecting Serum because it was so good, I had to buy it.
The results are beyond incredible. Today, my skin feels so amazingly soft, I don’t even recognise it as my own! The colour of my face looks different, it’s definitely glowing from within, and not from makeup, and my face looks more symmetrical, which must be due to the Facial Yoga.
Facial Yoga, has become super popular recently as it’s a non-invasive alternative to Botox and surgery. It helps to increase blood circulation, allowing more oxygen and more nourishment to reach the cells of the skin, which therefore stimulates collagen and elastin production to lift, firm, tone and reduce wrinkles. The result is a clear, healthy complexion with a beautiful glow which has less toxins and has a better ability to absorb moisture.
Any gym addict like me, would know that this makes total sense, and clearly works. It also seems that the endorphins have kicked in too, as I feel less stressed, and back to my normal happy self.
