As the editor of Hua Hin today I really love that I get to try all kinds of different spa treatments, especially after a busy day at work when I need skincare and some soothing! Just recently I was able to try out a lovely brand called Aromatherapy Associates at Intercontinental Hua Hin Spa. This brand, based in London, has been a leading expert in aromatherapy for over 30 years. I was lucky enough to try out the Soothing Introductory Set, which is indeed very soothing and also luxurious for the skin. The facial Spa treatment last for 60 minutes and is including:
Soothing Cleansing Balm
A very thick balm, with a wonderful fragrance. It has Omega oils to cleanse and hydrate; as well as licorice and chamomile to leave skin feeling calm and soothed. As soon as the water hits it, it turns into a regular cleanser that really takes off makeup and rinses cleanly leaving skin fresh, soft and supple. It doesn’t leave any residue on the skin.
Soothing Treatment Mask
An intense moisturizing mask with naturally active hyaluronic acid and millet seed to deeply hydrate and plump up the skin. Licorice and cotton thistle extract will visibly smooth the skin’s texture and support the natural moisture barrier. Packed with ingredients such as safflower oil, evening primrose oil, Vitamin E, strawberry seed oil, prickly pear stem extract and many other soothing ingredients, this mask calms redness and irritation while providing antioxidants for fine lines. Deeply soothing to the skin, it leaves it looking radiant! This mask is an SOS for skin that needs some extra help. Great for after peels, sun exposure or anytime skin is deeply dehydrated. It was exactly what i needed.
Soothing Face Oil
This oil is a nourishing blend of evening primrose oil, German Chamomile, Coconut oil, jojoba oil and sandalwood oil just to name a few. The oils in this blend ease irritation, comfort the skin and reduce redness. My therapist applied this prior to the soothing serum, all over the face (even on my eyes). It is great for fine lines and it soaks right into the skin.
Instant Skin Soothing Serum
This serum soothes and hydrates the skin with a combination of prebiotics that maintain the skin’s natural barrier and cotton thistle extract to support skin renewal. Roman chamomile and arnica soothe skin and cool irritated skin, leaving the complexion feeling and looking healthy. The serum is packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients and anti-oxidants. I noticed that when I applied it after a peel, my skin immediately calmed down and the redness disappeared immediately! I love this serum so much!
Soothing Daily Repair Moisturizer
A very nourishing and protective moisturizer that helps dry and stressed skin. It contains safflower ceramides, vital omega oils that are combined with cotton thistle extract and German Chamomile to support the regenerative process and maintain the skin’s natural radiance. Shea butter and rice germ oil help the skin to stay soft and supple. Anti-oxidants work at keeping fine lines and wrinkles at bay. This moisturizer is great for sensitive skins prone to redness. I found this moisturizer to be rich, yet also light and it sinks right into the skin. If you have red, irritated and sensitive skin this is a great line to consider. Immediately when I returned to the office they noticed the difference in my face , it was glowing and looking refreshed. I am glad that this was one of my last reviews for Hua Hin Today as this prepared my skin for my holidays! Thank you Intercontinental for the great experience.
