We’ve got a joint review for you today, courtesy of a lovely spa in Cardiff called Ener-chi. They have two branches in Cardiff, one in Radyr and one in Penarth.
They aim to combine the mind, body and spirit of individuals through the medium of beautifying, healing and relaxing rituals.
They have a wide range of treatments including facials, massage and personal grooming with products from brands such as Dr Haushka, Caudalie, Antipodes and Glamglow.
They sent us a beauty pack for our own little relaxing pamper sessions at home, and before we went out last weekend we put a girly film on and put our feet up…..
The cute beauty pack contained a Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate treatment, Caudalie Detox Oil, Dr Haushka Rose Day Cream and a Pukka Cool Mint Green tea for a start to finish pamper set.
We’ve both heard a LOT about Glamglow and their mud treatments; their results have been raved about and we couldn’t wait to get the packet open and onto our faces!
It definitely does what it says on the packet; it tingles! When we first put it on we did a little dance around the room as it tingled and then it settled down and began to dry, here’s a quick selfie:
The most interesting part was as it dried, you could see all of our pores! It was really weird but hopefully this means our pores were getting an extra deep clean.
We also boiled the kettle and made ourselves a cup of mint green tea to fully relax, mint teas are one of our favourites and a daily occurrence.
After it had dried we washed it off with warm water and a muslin cloth, it came off quite easily and our skin felt really clean and smooth afterwards.
Next we applied the Caudalie Polyphenol Overnight Detox Oil. As we were going for a night out we didn’t apply as much as was stated but the few drops we did apply absorbed really quickly into the skin and didn’t leave any trace.
I’ve used it since and applied the full 6 drops as an overnight treatment and my skin drank it up!
It’s really quite nice and I’d definitely look into purchasing it in future, I’ve heard a lot about Caudalie but this was the first product I’ve tried.
The tiny vial was so cute but actually held a lot of product as I thought it would only hold enough for one application. But I’ve used it at least twice since and still have another left.
A few hours later we then applied a Rose day Cream from Dr Haushka, another first for me. Dr Haushka is a brand that I’ve heard so much about but have never tried anything from. Their packaging and display are beautiful, and the product itself was luxurious.
Allegedly the centrepiece of the Dr Hauschka range the day cream nourishes and protects a wide range of skin types including from redness and irritation which is something that we all experience at some point.
All of these products were lovely to try out and it was lovely of Enerchi to send us samples of their range. After having a full body massage there a few weeks ago I will be sure to visit again, their staff were really friendly and my massage was out of this world!Not only was it a head to toe massage it included a facial too and I was honestly the most relaxed I’ve ever been (if extremely oily afterwards too!)
You can find Ener-chi’s website here, check out their range of treatments and the brands they stock!
What’s your favourite treatment? Have you tried anything from Caudalie, Glamglow or Dr Hauschka?
As L said we decided to treat ourselevs
ourselves to a full on pamper before we went out. Glam glow is something i was so excited to try after hearing so much about it. The fact it fully opened the pores impressed me and my skin was so smooth after wards! It was quite red though but it did go down within the hour.
As our skin was so soft we followed up with the oil. Being oily skinned i was dubious to put this on before a night out so had planned to leave it on for a few hours then cleanse my skin before I got ready. I was so surprised though as my skin just soaked up the oil and was left feeling soft and smooth and not at all greasy. This is now firmly on my wish list.
I love trying new products like this and it wad good to be able to try a little routine. As L said they have two salons in the local area and stock a lot more products including some amazing scented candles and some great gifts. You can also buy online at ener-chi.co.uk.
