From: Selected Treats,
City living can be tough. Between the manic commutes and school runs, meetings and daily domestic hassles, it can sometimes feel as if you are overdosing on urbanity. Taking time out to treat yourself can help keep stress at bay, and you’ll be glad to hear you can now add thermal healing to your after-work arsenal.
Previously only available in Mayfair salons, I gave some of the items from Keep Immaculate’s Thermal Therapy ™ range a go, to see if their claims of warming relaxation and ‘just left the spa’ skin were anything more than cold comfort.
Keep Immaculate was developed by award winning entrepreneur Lydia Montoute. At the heart of the brand’s philosophy lies the aim to pare down the typical beauty regime to help women for whom a polished appearance, wellness and convenience are top priorities.
The Thermal Therapy ™ range of products features heat packs containing a super-saturated solution that is activated by clicking a metal disc. Once activated, the gel solution inside the products crystallises, giving off warmth for approximately 20 minutes. To ready the packs for re-use, you simply pop them in the handy drawstring bags provided, boil them in a saucepan for a couple of minutes and then leave them to cool and dry on a countertop.
The three Thermal Therapy ™ starter kits available exclusively at Fenwick’s include:
After a busy week, I tried out the Glamhot Hand Exfoliator™ and despite having naturally warm hands most of the time, I found the experience wonderfully refreshing. The mint essence wasn’t at all overpowering or clinical as I had first feared and the exfoliating pad was gentle yet effective. My hands really did feel softer, smoother and less tense for a good few days afterwards.
The activation system was easy to use and I was also impressed by the fact that the oils didn’t seem to leave any greasy residue on the surface of my skin, suggesting that the heat did indeed help the product absorb much better.
If you want to soothe sore feet, perk up tired skin and bring the warmth of a spa experience into your home, then make your way to Fenwick’s to snap up these comforting packages. The Glamhot kit retails at £19.99, and both the Sauna Radiance Mask and Grooming Pedicure will set you back a mere £24.99.
