Less Stress, More Sleep! Meet Winter 13/14’s most comforting Bath/Body Collection
Were we surprised? Not really. Therapie’s Himalayan Detox Bath Salts totally sold out after Grazia, the Telegraph and Times featured them earlier this year, and they’ve practically achieved cult status among beauty editors because of their soporific, sleep-like-a-baby effect.
The range was launched last year by top British aromatherapist Michelle Roques O’Neil and this capsule collection of energy-boosting, re-balancing potions really does deliver.
What are others saying about Therapie? Lily at WhatIHeartToday.com has just reviewed them too, and Fleur de Force is stocking up on them – again – after being pretty skeptical about whether or not they’d work – watch her video approx. 8.08 mins in, to see what she has to say about these borderline magical salts.
Therapie has JUST launched a new luxury bath indulgence, Joie Bath Infusion which is very different from the Himalayan Salts – it’s a fine powder and the ingredients are extraordinary. Here’s what’s in it:
Winter 13/14’s most decadent bath indulgence?
Buttermilk a lush rich moisturiser, nature’s pro-biotic and rich in lactic acid helps soften and brighten the skin.
Mysore Sandalwood is a spiritual wood, the powder made from the heartwood where the aroma lies, it’s good for all skin types but particularly soothing where there is inflammation.
Pink Clay is used to cleanse and detoxify the skin, it removes dead skin cells and creates a refreshed appearance.
Frankincense powder has an illustrious reputation for it’s capacity to elevate you out of the doldrums into a place of security; physically Frankincense is rejuvenating and is immensely skin -healing. It acts as a salve that envelopes and cocoons you.
Himalayan Cedarwood’s sweet woody balsamic aroma is often used in sacred incenses and is emotionally calming and soothing and traditionally used to treat inflammation and debility.
Rose Petal Powder has a fragrant aroma and is traditional Indian beauty remedy for its cooling and toning qualities.
Jasper crystal powder sustains and supports through times of stress, and brings a sense of tranquility and wholeness.
Rose Quartz crystal powder is the stone of universal love. promote deep inner healing and peace of mind.
Another favourite Therapie product from Michelle Roques-O’Neil’s capsule collection (made up of 6 pieces plus the new Love Candle) would have to be the ridiculously refreshing Boost Hair & Body Wash – it’s a feels-good-to-be-alive mint explosion mixed with some citrus notes, kept fresh in a heavy, glossy black bottle which looks uber-smart in the bathroom. You’ve got Aloe, Sweet Basil, May Chang (lemony-sweet), Rosemary, Blood Orange, Lemon Myrtle, Caraway, Cardamom, Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Spearmint in there, it really is a Wake Up Wash as Anna at Viviannadoesmakeup.com calls it! Brilliant for helping you rise and shine when all you want to do is hide under the duvet on a dark winter morning.
Therapie is one of those bespoke-style capsule collections that can, and really does – no hype here – make a noticeable difference to your/our stress and energy levels because it’s therapeutically formulated in the deepest sense of the word. Michelle was named one of the world’s Top 10 Aromatherapists by Vogue, and her Therapie collection is one of those ranges you become emotionally addicted to (be warned!)
We also tested Michelle’s Cherish Skin Repair Body Serum when it first launched and it’s probably is one of the most luxurious and comforting natural serums on the UK market. At this time of year, it’s ideal for a colder snap and because of its concentrated, super-charged ingredients. You get a large 200ml bottle and yes it IS good enough to use on your face! If your skin gets ravaged by the double winter whammy of icy winds and central heating this is like a rich, protective drink for skin and quite a beauty steal when you factor in how much you get for £42 (no mini 30ml here – your 200ml glossy black bottle will last you for ages).
Tempted to try Therapie and can’t decide? Have a look at the Discover Me Kit, with everything in it except the Love Candle and Joie Bath Infusion in generous travel sizes. £40.
Therapie is also available at Cult Beauty.
