As you all know by now, I’m a big advocate of natural anti-aging solutions as opposed to going under the knife. Which is why I was so intrigued by ESPA’s brand new Natural Facelift Facial. And it didn’t disappoint.
I headed over to one of my all-time favourite spa spots, ESPA Life at the Corinthia, to give this facial a go for myself. Inspired by ancient Japanese Kobido techniques, the treatment is delivered in four stages: Detox, Invigorating Massage, Sculpt, and Relax. Using the brand’s New Tri-Active Advanced ProBiome range, it’s a surgery-free alternative to younger-looking skin.
The ethos of this treatment is to detoxify and tone your facial muscles, and my therapist began with a gentle cleanse. In the dark, relaxing atmosphere of my treatment room, it wasn’t long before I started to doze off. This first stage of this facial also incorporates gorgeous oils, massaged into the lymph points to eliminate toxins.
Next up is the massage. As mentioned this is built around Japanese Kobido techniques, and Jade rollers are used to increase circulation and bring oxygen to the surface. After this, the sculpting begins! And while this part of the treatment is really intense, I had no problems switching off completely. This stage of the facial is great for getting rid of tension, especially around the jawline where we carry it most.
Lastly, a soothing mask is applied. The previous stages were really warming on my skin, so the cooling ingredients in this mask were divine. With peppermint and eucalyptus, my face felt really invigorated. And while the mask worked its magic, a pink mud treatment was applied to my scalp. To finish, gorgeous-smelling moisturisers lock in all the goodness, leaving my skin feeling super toned and plumped.
All in all this treatment felt like a work out for the face, and much more enjoyable than squats at the gym! What’s more the results were instant I really noticed a difference, I’ll definitely be returning for more very very soon! My therapist was AMAZING!
