Spiezia Rose Ritual Review
When I looked through the new Lifehouse treatment menu and saw a treatment called ‘Rose Ritual’, it instantly appealed to me…. A rose ritual sounded so luxurious and decadent, I had visions of myself lying in a gold bath of roses whilst being pampered and drinking champagne. Well… obviously it’s not quite like that but it is just as fabulous and unlike any treatment I have ever experienced before!
The Rose Ritual is a new treatment only available at Lifehouse from Made for Life™ by Spiezia Organics. I hadn’t heard of this brand before and if you haven’t either, then I suggest you check them out. Made with love and care in Cornwall, the products use only natural botanicals such as herbs, flowers and oils that are perfect for all skin types – even the most sensitive of skin like mine!
The products are so pure that you can even eat them… I promise! I tried some of the body scrub which tasted like brown sugar mixed with some lemon zest. Just like the top of a lemon drizzle cake! Yum.
I also really like that the product range has been designed so that those diagnosed and recovering from cancer can enjoy the benefits from the products and relaxing treatments.
This new exciting brand arrived at Lifehouse in February, offering a range of treatments and stocking their products in the shop. I’m a Lifehouse regular, a Lifer as I call myself, and I’m always on the lookout for new and innovative treatments to try. So, after reading up about Spiezia, I decided that The Rose Ritual was the one for me.
The treatment started off with a 2 minute breathing exercise to relax my body and mind. The therapist and I did a series of deep breaths and slow inhalations together until I had reached a deep sense of relaxation.
Once the breathing was complete, I put my feet into a warm basin that had dozens of small rose petals in it. My lovely therapist then scrubbed and exfoliated my feet using the Spiezia ‘Embrace The Day’ Body Scrub.
The main section of the ritual is a full body massage using the Rose and Vanilla Oil. My therapist explained that the oil was made from rose buds macerated in jojoba, with wheatgerm oils and vanilla pods which would rejuvenate my skin - resulting in natural radiance. Yes please!
The therapist used a variation of movements and techniques to massage the oil into my whole body. I asked for hard pressure as I like to get all of the knots out! She then wrapped me up tightly inside soft cotton sheets to let the oil soak in and help to hydrate and nourish my skin.
The next stage was the facial. The Daily Radiance Cleansing Balm was used to gently cleanse and exfoliate my skin and remove all of the dead skin cells. Feathery strokes and pressure-point work helped to massage the Moisturising Balm deep into my skin. Just when I thought this treatment couldn't get better, my therapist covered my hair with rosemary hair oil and performed a fabulous scalp massage for ten minutes. Every inch of my body from my head down to my toes was thoroughly massaged.
Even my nose got a work-out: Smells such as vanilla, lemongrass, rose, chamomile and marigold filled the room. By the end of 85 minutes, my face felt satin-soft, my head felt so light and my body so smooth and sleek.
Once the treatment was complete I felt very sleepy and drank a lot of water, as recommended, to keep hydrated. I kept the products on all day and night whilst at Lifehouse (note – your hair does look greasy do don’t go out in public – stay tucked up at Lifehouse!)
The result? Well my skin felt great for days afterwards and was positively gleaming. My hair was superbly silky and shiny and my body relaxed and smooth.
Now who wouldn’t want some of that?
