I tried The Soothe and Repair Facial by ESPA. My cheeks are very prone to redness, which can leave me looking as if I have been on the wine.. (I haven’t!). This facial promises provides cool comfort to irritated skin, which is particularly prone to redness and heat flushing, so this was the ideal facial for me to experience. It starts with a facial cleanse, followed by a cooling rose quartz massage. A soothing mask is then applied, before the ESPA Repair and Restore Intensive Serum is gently applied. It leaves skin refreshed and redness visibly reduced.
We stayed in an Executive King, a large contemporary studio room with a private entrance hall. The bathroom is clad in Italian marble and has underfloor heating, a tropical rain shower and a deep bathtub with built-in LED TV and ESPA products.
Facilities include: a Nespresso machine, in-room media hub, Loewe LCD HD TV, complimentary Wi-Fi and a refrigerated private bar.
