If you'd love to restore your skin's natural radiance, take some relaxing me-time in a stunning location, and have your senses bathed in delicate aromas then this organic skincare facial is for you!
With this GrooVee you get a one hour facial using 100% organic products – either Jurlique or Neal’s Yard beauty products and pre-mixed aromatherapy oils from the Bristol-based company Amphora Aromatics, including a 15 minute shoulder, neck and head massage or feet and leg massage (your choice). It's heaven scent!
You are advised to wear as little make-up as possible on arrival so that the cleansing element does not take up too much of your precious treatment time and male clients are advised to be clean shaven to get the full benefit. The facial is expertly delivered by Carol in her gorgeously rustic and cosy homebased treatment room. You will be asked fill out a very short form with a checkbox list of relevant health conditions including any allergies. This will normally take less than 5 minutes. For your massage you get to choose relaxing, invigorating, muscle & joint or skin nourishing oils. You also get a choice of Jurlique or Neal’s Yard face masks. All products contain a potent fusion of active herbal ingredients to gently bring out the natural radiance of your skin and are suitable for all skin types including very sensitive.
You will be lying on your back with towels and an optional blanket covering your whole body for the duration of the treatment. Carol will carry out the first few steps of the facial and after applying the face mask she will start the 15 minute massage. Once the massage is over she carries on with the facial until the end of the hour. In addition to the face mask of your choice, the standard products used include Jurlique’s Replenishing Foaming Cleanser, Rosewater Balancing Mist, the Polishing and Smoothing Exfoliator, Skin Balancing Face Oil, Youth Defence Active Gel Concentrate, Rose Moisture Plus – a rich protecting moisturiser. Alternatively you choose items from a range of Neal’s Yard products. It is entirely up to you – you can rest assured that both brands are completely organic. None of them are tested on animals and have no animal content. The products are both luxurious and ethical. What's more this is a fantastically warm and relaxing treatment in a gorgeous setting and with lasting effects.
I found Sea Breeze Retreat easily from the ‘main’ road and parked my car in the dedicated space right opposite the 13th century church beyond which I took a moment to admire the stunning view of the sea and Baggy Point in the distance. I walked a short distance to the front of the house was met outside the door by Carol who welcomed me directly into the retreat.
I did not hesitate in my choice of neck, shoulder and head as the target area for my 15 minute massage. Nor did it take me long to decide on the Jurlique Moisturising Cream Mask as I know my skin was desperate for rehydration. It was slightly more tricky choosing the massage oil but as soon as I smelled that combination of citrus and spice I knew that was the one for me with pure basil, geranium, lemongrass & rosewood. I had no doubt it was going to be a treat from the moment I reclined onto the firm but warm and comfortable couch where I was enveloped in soft warm towels and took the option of the extra blanket. The facial commenced with a thorough cleanse. Rosewater was applied at various stages which not only toned the skin but also helped prepare it to better absorb all the goodness from the other lotions and potions. All of the sumptuous organic products are applied with a variety of rhythmic strokes that simultaneously relax the facial muscles, improve the flow of lymph and ensure perfect skin coverage. Carol’s touch was gentle but firm, leaving no area unattended to. Even with the initial cleansing strokes I could feel the tension dissipating from my jaw, around my eyes and temples. The hot towels between applications had a sort of blanket-relaxation effect across my whole body and I knew that they would also be opening up my pores to get a deep cleanse as well as preparing the skin to absorb the goodies to come (Carol was careful to check the temperature with me). Her massage was firm but not at all painful. She honed in straight away on a couple of areas of increased tension – my right shoulder blade, the left side of my neck – and managed to get just the right amount of pressure to help the muscle release without leaving any soreness. Carol finished with a dab of Rose Lip Balm and a delicate covering of Jurlique Rose Silk Dust to help absorb any residue and reduce the shininess you can sometimes get after such a deeply moisturising facial. I could have quite easily just stayed there for the rest of the day so her gentle padding down and rolling of my legs under the blanket and squeezing my feet to introduce me back into the real world was much appreciated! I would definitely love to go back for this or other treatments, take a girlfriend and maybe make the most of the day by going for a nice walk and having a posh lunch with even more stunning views at the nearby Watersmeet hotel next time!
I loved this wonderful treatment. I was inspired by the lovely location (both the beautiful scenery and the peaceful, cosy room), Carol is an expert in facials and massage and my skin has continued to feel soft and hydrated since. But the thing that struck me the most was the gorgeous smell of the products. The subtle blend of rosewater, citrus, spice and floral tones tickled my senses from 11am when the treatment began to that evening when I was tucked up in bed. Throughout the day the delicate smell of the different organic products wafted into my awareness and each time took me back to that calm, cosy setting of Sea Breeze Retreat.
