Dubbed as The Mindful Touch, Pennyhill Park Hotel and Spa in Bagshot is one of only two venues in the country to add the exclusive facial to it’s treatment menu.
Launched at this year’s Oscars, stars and celebrities were among the first to enjoy the new dimension of well-being which combines real diamonds and virtual reality.
Costing £125 for 70 minutes, the 3D treatment starts with a virtual reality headset placed over your eyes to transport you to cloud nine.
I was extremely lucky to be able to experience the extraordinary facial, which quite frankly is out of this world.
The innovative and trailblazing venture within the spa sector, combines Natura Bissé’s cosmetics with the most advanced technology.
Through virtual reality, mindfulness and the therapist’s expertise – the touch – I was able to reconnect and relax my body, awaken my senses and experience the pleasure of beauty in a more intense way.
Having never worn a virtual reality headset before (and being a bit of a technophobe) I was a bit apprehensive that something so cold could be so sensuous.
But after just 10 minutes watching the tranquil visuals I was at total peace.
The soothing words of a woman’s voice in the video continued during the rest of the treatment which included a cooling algae mask to firm the skin, a rigorous neck and scalp rub to lift sagging skin and a calming arm and hand massage using divine rose oil.
My face tingled when the therapist rubbed the diamond nectar serum into my skin, but it wasn’t an unpleasant sensation.
The serum had properties of actual diamonds and was lathered on to improve my skin’s vitality and elasticity.
The products used contained the finest Damask rose extract sourced from Morocco.
They were rich, velvety and luxurious and the aromas from them were absolutely gorgeous.
There was a subtle scent of lavender which only meant one thing for me… it wouldn’t be long until I fell asleep.
At just over an hour in length, it was the perfect amount of time to fully unwind and enjoy the remarkable facial.
I didn’t want to get up from the warm and cosy bed lit by candlelight once my treatment had finished, but I felt extremely satisfied and I couldn’t wait to expose my smooth, rejuvenated glowing skin to the rest of the world.
During my visit to the award-winning spa, I was able to experience everything the five star luxury hotel had to offer, including sleeping in a sumptuous suite, tasting exquisite food in the Brasserie and relaxing by the heated indoor and outdoor pools.
Set within 123 acres of rolling Surrey parkland, all of the luxury suites, junior suites and bedrooms are individually designed and styled.
The Laurel suite which we stayed in was charming and elegant, blending traditional fixtures and fittings with contemporary facilities. It was beautiful.
Breakfast the following day was a glorious buffet of hot and cold delights, and I enjoyed starting my morning feast with freshly baked warm croissants and orange juice looking out onto the inviting 25m heated outdoor pool and hot tubs.
Laura’s stay was provided by Pennyhill Park Hotel and Spa.
