One of my favourite indulgences is a visit to a day spa and one of the very best day spas in Cape Town is the Librisa Spa located at the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel. I was recently invited to enjoy a luxurious Sothys facial – a new French skincare brands stocked in the Librisa Spa.
Sothys, a world of extremely refined emotions and sensuality, a legendary name that represents excellence and prestige in beauty.
A highly specialised brand, Sothys has an extraordinary commitment to research and innovation. The brand is also the creator of Digi-Esthétique ®, an exclusive modelling method that helps transform the institute treatment into an unforgettable sensorial experience. This was indeed my own experience of Sothys at Librisa Spa.
Sothys offers six different facials, concentrating on energising, hydrating, brightening, peeling and re-surfacing. Each intensive treatment utilises cosmeceutical-grade solutions for specific skin requirements. Erase skin imperfections, correct the signs of ageing and intensively hydrate with these cutting-edge formulations and customised protocols.
As I’m rapidly heading towards a big birthday, my skin is needing as much anti-aging intervention as it can get… and it is always rather dry and dehydrated so I opted for the Sothy’s Hydration Facial.
Immerse in an intense hydration experience powered with triple hyaluronic acid. It restores, reactivates and regenerates your skin for an immediate long-lasting effect. Enjoy double serum and triple mask in a SINGLE treatment. Results are instant and lasting at any age.
3-Dimensional hydrating innovation.
In the perfect alliance of technical advancement and sensory pleasure, this treatment combines ultra-comfortable textures with high-performance active ingredients to promote water flows within the skin and provide it with absolute hydration.
The products themselves are super luxurious on the skin and feel incredible. I particularly loved the mask that was cool, heavy and ultra-calming for my skin. The products have a mild musky aquatic scent which I loved.
Another MASSIVE highlight for me was the duration of this facial. This isn’t a rushed experience – there’s even time for an amazing massage of your choice – I always opt for a head massage if it’s on offer! I loved that the facial felt long (1 hour and 15 mins!) and each aspect of the treatment felt considered and careful.
The treatment I received promised plumper, visibly younger skin with up to 71% improvement in hydration levels after just one treatment… and I can honestly say my skin felt AMAZING after this facial. If I was to book another facial in the near future it would be this one. My skin LOVED this facial and glowed for days afterwards.
