I'm not usually much of a spa girl. I'm not saying I don't love it, because I blooming well do. I just mean that I don't seem to go often. In fact I've been once before (remember this post about the Ajala Spa and their Hammaman treatment?) and of course this time and that's about it. I suppose it's one of those things for the most of us where it does come around every now and again and it should feel super special and like a treat. It probably wouldn't be as good or feel as exciting if this wasn't the case! That being said, I headed down to the Agua Spa to try out a facial from one of my favourite skincare brands of the moment, Jurlique. I'm a massive fan of the brand anyway (and you can see an introduction of Jurlique here) and so you can imagine how excited I was to try it out under a different more luxurious and relaxing setting.
I went for the Jurlique Nutri-Define Touch of Luxe Sculpting & Defining Facial Treatment*, an exclusive treatment to Agua Spa that lasts for 50 minutes. This facial is an anti-aging treatment (though saying that, don't let this stop you from getting it as I definitely don't need any anti-ageing yet) that uses the Jurlique Nutri-Define range and incorporates the Jurlique facial contouring technique. Honestly, this was the most luxurious thing I have ever experienced. The spa is just heavenly. With all of the white furniture and floating material it feels bright and relaxing, the serene sounds of the spa just add to that and with the bonus of an amazing treatment all I'll say is I had to stop myself from falling asleep - yep, it was that relaxing. This facial is so much more than I thought it would be. I'd never had one before so I didn't really know what to expect but I basically thought it would be a prolonged version of what I'd do at home when giving myself a little skincare treat but in a more luxurious and relaxing setting, and of course, having someone else do it for me but I was so wrong. Not only do you receive all of the products being applied beautifully you too receive a warm oil back massage alongside a facial massage using precious rose quartz and jade stones. This is to make your skin feel and look more luminous and re-energised and honestly, it did. Using a mixture of the Nutri-Define products alongside other products from the Jurlique range specifically targeted to my dry and dehydrated skin type, my skin was left feeling like it never had before. I thought I'd have to apply makeup afterwards but my skin felt so great that I didn't want to! I felt so relaxed and I can't even get it down into words how amazing this experience was. Left with product recommendations on how to improve your skin from then on and the next treatment that they would recommend for you and of course amazingly rejuvenated skin and the most relaxed feeling well, ever. I couldn't recommend this experience more!
Perfect if your skin is needing a little TLC or just if you fancy giving yourself a little treat. If I want to head for another treatment I won't even think twice before heading here again, it's a no brainer as it really was that good.
