24 Aug 2020
While talks of reopening beauty spas and wellness centres are still up in the air, it does not mean that we can’t relish in the pleasure of relaxation and rejuvenation. Ahead, here’s our picks of natural products to make your at-home spa a little more indulgent and a lot more enjoyable.
What’s a spa without candles (not a complete one, of course!). Set the mood with the Naturelle soy candle (HK$188 plus shipping fee) from Michell Lie of proudly local Michell Lie Studio. Made of 100% natural soy wax enclosed in an organic ceramic from Taiwan, the hand-poured candle is infused with an array fragrances and essential oils such as sandwalwood, bergamot, jasmine, and more creating the ultimate calming spa vibes. Aside from feeling good, you will also be doing some good as 30% of the profits for each candle sold goes directly to the Hong Kong elderlies.
Give your mane the R&R it needs with Coco and Eve’s Super nourishing coconut and fig hair masque (~HK$162 plus shipping). This miracle worker is enriched with raw virgin coconut oil from Bali, fig essence, argan oil and shea butter that will swiftly transform your tresses and resolve any damage, dullness and dryness issues. On top of that, the luscious mask is completely free of parabens and sulphates.
Goop-ify your detox game: From the same crew that put “Moon Dust” breakfast smoothies on the market comes the G.Tox detox salt bath soak (~HK$303). Dubbing itself as the “ultimate SOS” for those in need of a full-body detox from head to toe, this mineral-rich formula is not playing around. Crafted with pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salt, Himalayan pink salt, Dead Sea salt, New Zealand solar salt and baking soda, alongside essential oils, activated charcoal and glacial marine clay, this bath soak will strip your skin of impurities and leave it feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Since we can’t leave it to the professionals as of this moment, treat yourself to a professional Vinothérapie (read: exfoliation) treatment at home with Caudalie’s cabernet scrub (HK$250). Made of crushed grape seeds and 6 different essential oils, this body exfoliator instantly softens and smoothes the skin, perfect for day or evening use. And staying true to Caudalie’s ‘all-natural’ approach to beauty, this product contains no parabens, parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates and mineral oils.
Reach ‘foot nirvana’ at the comfort of your own bathroom thanks to Barefoot Scientist’s Pure Grit (HK$205 plus shipping fee). An all-in-one vegan exfoliating scrub, this product deep cleans, buffs and hydrates the skin leaving the tootsies looking pretty using natural ingredients, minerals and oils and shea butters. While our feet work hard to get us places, why don’t we return the favour and keep them radiant and protected? And besides, what’s a spa without a foot massage anyway? Besides being vegan, this product is also hypoallergenic and cruelty-free.
