Everybody needs a little Therapie and if you love lots of Therapies, well, here they are. Top aromatherapist Michelle Roques-O’Neil’s cult, multi-award winning bath+body aromatherapy range is addictive and if you haven’t tried them yet, now you can – for around £10 each.
Since her Himalayan Detox Bath Salts won a Beauty Shortlist Award a few years back, they’ve gone on to become one of beauty’s most magical “alchemist products”, transforming insomnia into a decent night’s sleep. Useful if you wake up frequently during the night or tend to hit the pillow with a laundry list of to-do’s buzzing in your head.
Help when you feel a cold coming on…Therapie’s HEAL ME KIT
I’m a big fan of her Boost Hair & Body Wash (£17 for the full size), and the ingredients in her Cherish Skin Repair Serum read like the most delicious fruit and botanicals label you’ll ever see.
Therapie just won yet another award – a new Beauty Shortlist – MyShowcase.com collaborative award, launched for the first time last month.
MyShowcase founders – top beauty journalist Kate Shapland and entrepreneur Nancy Cruickshank – looked at some of the best contenders in the 2016 Beauty Shortlist Awards and chose their favourite brand of the year – so, congratulations Therapie for making the cut among some pretty stiff competition from international brands.
Therapie’s Discover Me Kit £42
Every Therapie in the collection is lovely (the only products I haven’t tried are the Pure and the Love candles) and Michelle pours her expertise into these products, to the point that “aromatherapy” doesn’t adequately describe how these work at a deeper level.
Cult Beauty calls her Himalayan Detox Bath Salts “the natural alternative to Valium”, for example – the brand scores high on feelgood/gorgeous-to-use points – but it’s fair to say the point of the range is deep healing, creating a positive shift, whether it’s the skin-revitalising Cherish Skin Repair Serum or those knock-you-out/sweet dreams Bath Salts.
Left to Right (above: Equilibrium Bath & Shower Essence, the Boost Hair & Body Wash (love this!), Cherish Skin Repair Serum, a cocktail of delicious skin-loving oils and botanical extracts, and Restore Aura Spray for when you’re feeling nervous, wobbly or just a bit off-centre – it’s a red carpet nerve-soother)
If you fancy trying the Bath Salts or are scouting around for a mini gift for someone, have a look at Therapie’s 4-piece, BALANCE ME Gift Set (£22.50) HERE
