At the hotel Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris Spa My Blend by Clarins.
Far away from the parisian hustle and bustle, when entering Le Royal Monceau Spa, you suddenly feel within a soft white cocoon, as if you were floating on a cloud. Within a pure white world, surrounded by designed wall-length mirrors reflecting the pool’s water, you will be guided and cosseted by skilled and attentive experts.
“Cleopatra was pampered with treatments specially designed for her” states Olivier Courtin, Managing Director of Clarins, Europe’s number one brand for Cosmetics. My Blend is a “unique range of customisable and tailored skin treatments” he proudly underlines. Cares and advice for your whole body: from pedicure to manicure or even haircare. Naturally, men are the most welcome.
After a detailed skin diagnosis realized through a computerized system equipped with sensors and further to a talk about your lifestyle and habits, you will be guided by a “Beauty coach”. As far as facial care is concerned, she will help the Clarins agents to work deeply on your skin, stimulating micro-level circulation, drainage and cell renewal. Once erased all signs of daily stress, you would enjoy a fresh fruit cocktail or a glass of champagne. While savouring it, you will be given professional hints and tips on how to continue your treatment at home.
Would you choose treatment or massage ? or perhaps both of them since the “Parisian Radiance” offers a “Milky-Soft Foot Spa” and culminates in a “Melting Honey Massage with Hot Stones”. For 2 hours of pure delight, it will cost you up to 315 euros.
If you opt for the “My Day Spa” discovery pass, you will benefit from three diagnoses by experts, a customised facial care, a body treatment or a massage, a fitness session with a personal trainer along with a free access to the pool and other water fitness areas. You could laze in large white-tiled loungers before getting to the laconium, a humid area where the temperature increases gradually. There, you will be captivated by the ice fountain forming a stupendous cascade to the floor. An ideal cool relief after the heat of the sauna or Turkish bath.
