In January I set off to Paris Week Men and was hosted by Hotel Molitor. Within the rooms there were products from Elemis which I have never used before. I was instantly hooked regarding the hair products. Due to me running around at catwalks I had no time for a treatment.
The House Of Elemis has just recently opened in London, and I had just flown in from Barcelona for the start of our second Luxury Week London. Alongside the luxury week was also an event called London Collections: Men where top British designers and male models showcase the best of Britsh fashion over the course of four days. So what a way to start the week by getting a bespoke facial and a massage.
The House Of Elemis
This luxurious Mayfair townhouse is the creative heart of Elemis. They have over 25 years of knowledge in skincare and created a concept that no other spa offers. The therapists make your treatment very personal and listen to what you need. They also understand what to look for both in body, soul and mind. For me the world of luxury is someone within this context making you feel relaxed, look better and for the time you are with them. A feeling that there is no other place to be but in the house of Elemis.
This is the ultimate couture experience that can only be described by ELEMIS: “a sanctuary where time will surrender to you”. In today’s rushed environment especially in central London, this is something essential. For me luxury is about choosing treatments that will be self healing to the body, soul and mind. I am amazed how we neglect ourselves in order to achieve our goals in life. But what we have to really understand is to listen to our body and look at our skin and realize that by taking the time to treat ourselves makes us more productive in the long term. In the last three years the access to male grooming and what it can offer men is amazing. There is no reason to feel you can’t treat yourself to a facial let alone a massage.
Guys in 2016, in where fashion and the way you look is more important than ever, I would encourage you try out a treatment here. Their clients I was told is a high percentage of men so the staff certainly know how to treat a guy who has not been at all. You don’t have to know what you need or how to behave. Let the experts here guide you and enjoy your time.
I had what you call a speed spa which takes only 30 minutes. The first thing that happens is they take a photo of your skin and talk about where you skin is for now. They look at how damaged it is and what they recommend the treatments necessary. So I had an ultrasonic peel pump which is about giving energy to your skin and can only be described as stimulating the skin into action. It was really relaxing and I when it was done I felt really awake and my skin looked alive again. Just perfect timing for my cocktail party with Noose& Monkey at the W London Hotel.
Body Neck And Shoulder
I had been travelling since 4am and straight away dashed off to a few meetings, I was really struggling by 5pm. So this was the perfect time to get a cunningly choreographed neck and shoulder reviver. This is designed to calm your thoughts and let the therapist knuckle those knots and tease out those tensions. I am still recovering from a fractured shoulder so this was perfect and I felt wide awake again. Guys I would suggest these two treatments if you’re not used to this as a nice teaser and welcome to the world of luxury body treatments. Trust me you will be hooked. There are specific treatments for men as your skin type is different to women. There are plenty of guys coming in and out so you will blend in for sure.
Guys male grooming in 2016 is a must try and trust me us ladies do know the difference to guys who take care of their face and ones who really understand that in today’s world. The word luxury is about pampering yourself the best you can. As menswear and lifestyle has grown so much I encourage any guy to invest in some male grooming. Don’t forget to buy some Elemis hair products trust me they are amazing.
