Imagine you are a tourist, you land at Paris capital of fashion and beauty, and would have a treatment in a very French institute? Here you are offered a card with chocolate treatments, in a Japanese style atmosphere. Find the mistake. The founder of this intimate Parisian institute was tired of sweet exotic-care and wanted to create a beautiful apartment but also a range that can celebrate the art of well-being to the French.
Concept very interesting to return to origins, having seen develop in this area everything and anything. France is in the spotlight and especially rediscovery. For what we know of sacred plants and ancestral traditions cosmetics? Regine Ferrère, the founder of the Circle and leading figure in the world of perfumery and cosmetic, immersed herself in the history of France and literature to extract the basis of this cosmetic original.
Now this was not a reason for the location, gestures and products we bring in a setting of Panacea among the Gauls, a natural history museum or the apartments of Marie Antoinette! But they are all steeped in ancient and modern, of French sophistication and simplicity.
Newly opened, this institute has a prestigious address, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore. The elevator shaft you into a damn bling environment. Push the door, and there, no trace of gilding, marble, white bamboo, lounge music, while what we might be accustomed in spas top-end or standard elsewhere No. it is black and purple, noble color. Atmosphere "Parisian Chic" as desired by the founder.
Height of luxury and exclusivity, the products used for the treatment are from the ESLIGNAC line, which were developed by the founder of the Circle and sold exclusively in the school. Care Products sacred plants produced in France from ingredients from the land of France. The products are natural and some assets are labeled "Ecocert".
. Finally, the sense of privacy and exclusivity is reinforced by the fact that the circle has only 5 cabins (2 with bath, 2 with shower, and the last dedicated specifically to cosmetic treatments) and only 3 people. Around the owner is quick, with the opportunity to discover works of art on display in the hallway leading to the cabins. In French artists, of course.
Dans des verres à pied en cristal, tout le nécessaire pour ce soin. The facial that I tested is called Dream Blueberry, a "care for dull complexions and scrambled." Being pregnant, I protected a maximum of sun and am always looking radiance. Before slip under cover, the beautician is my tray of care. In crystal stemware, everything needed for this treatment. What delicate way of presenting prduits, with some flowers!
Here are the main steps of this 60 minute treatment:
- Cleansing of clay and tonic lotion with 3 flowers (purple, nasturtium, hawthorn) milk
- Expert scrub mask for 10 to 15 minutes, removed using a hot oshibori
- Facial massage "Fire in the Ice"
- Mud cure with blueberry (obtained by mixing clay and powdered blueberry) to promote radiance
- Hand massage
- Cleaning with cold oshibori
- Applying a face cream enriched with purple to appease
- Applying an intensive care for lips (without alcohol)
What have I enjoyed this treatment? A very sweet gesture beautician, unique odor products, various sensations on my face, cabin comfort and healthy glow to the end. Original also relaxing chair marble (there are only 3 in the world) to prolong the pleasure of coverage
What do I like least? The (International opera, French song, ...) eclectic music too so not quite consistent with the concept of place and not enough "neutral" to relax completely. Also, rinsing pretty stemware could intervene in a place other than the cab, because typically hear the agitation in my back while my mask based stressing me!
The price? Super reasonable for a place of this type. € 90. I would have expected more. But without doubt, it is the opening price!
The right plan for the return of the circle?
