AVEDA: Stress Fix Massage

photo

photo1

A few weeks back I went along to the lovely Aveda Institute for much pampering.  I was booked in for the new ‘Stress Fix’ massage which is clinically proven to reduce feelings of stress and tension. The massage combines Swedish, Thai and deep tissue massage techniques, along with foot reflexology, acupressure points and guided meditation to calm and rejuvenate you.

The massage incorporates the Stress-Fix aroma with Lavender, Lavandin, and Clary Sage throughout, and you can choose choose to be treated for 45 minutes, a full hour, or a lovely hour and 15 minutes, I had an hour of pure bliss and relaxation.

On arrival by feet were soaked with the Aveda ‘Stress Fix’ salts, I was then popped on to the massage table where my whole body literally head to toe was worked on.  I have had massages in the past where i’ve not felt any difference on leaving, however leaving the Aveda Institute I felt like I had really been worked on.  I am often being told I should get regular massages as the tension in my shoulders due to excessive computer work builds up pretty quick.  My masseuse was AMAZING and I can hands down say the ‘Stress Fix’ massage was probably the best I’ve EVER experienced.

I left feeling rejuvenated and loose, the masseuse really worked on my shoulders using different massage techniques and what was great it she wasn’t afraid to get in to the nooks and crannies to work out knots.

I cant recommend the Aveda institute enough.  Massage prices start from £53 and are so worth the investment. You can check out the treatment list here.

 

What type of massage hits the spot for you?

REVIEW: Rituals ‘Laughing Buddha’ Touch of Happiness Body Cream

RITUALS, RIUTALS LAUGHING BUDDHA TOUCH OF HAPPINESS BODY CREAM, TOUCH OF HAPPINESS BODY CREAM BY RITUALS, RITUALS NEW LAUGHING BUDDHA COLLECTION, RITUALS TOUCH OF HAPPINESS BODY CREAM

Packed with sweet orange and cedar wood this heavenly thick and creamy body cream is butter in a tub.  It has become my after shower ‘ritual’ (no pun intended) on daily basis that I am sad to see the bottom of the tub.

Rituals have used some kind of special technology that makes this whipped cream easy to apply, soaking into the skin with ease which is a bonus as most thick creamy creams take a lot of rubbing and teasing into the skin before the white residue finally disappears.

The formulation is very rich and velvety and my skin feels lovely and moisturised and super skily throughout the day post application.  The smell from the natural ingredients is not too strong or too placid.. its just right and really invigorating in the mornings. Its definitely a great body cream that I would purchase.

The price of £15.00 is pretty reasonable for the natural ingredients, luxury and overall skincare you get in return.

What are your favourite Rituals products?
