Luxury vegan beauty brand’s Orveda’s signature facial lasts about 45 minutes and uses the brand’s hero products which are applied using various massage techniques including lymphatic drainage.
With luxury beauty, senses and luxury wellbeing being a core focus for Gentlemans Butler, when I recently was sent details about their eye unveiler, this caught my eye with the focus on the words luxury vegan. I am not a vegan but am definitely focused on looking after the planet and so I was curious. As many might gather there is an amazing amount of beauty brand launches so one can become a little blaze. I was invited to experience a Fix and Glow Treatment which is being offered at Harvey Nichols London’s Beauty Lounge.
When we review beauty brands our assessment is actually relatively simple as we assess how we are looked after, the place where the treatment takes place, the feeling of the treatment, the effectiveness of the products and the look and feel following.
Orveda’s Head Therapist, Rachel looked after me with great professionalism and care. I was genuinely impressed.
This was fundamentally a taster as there will be a deluxe facial in the offing early next year which is what we would normally cover.
Orveda has been created by Sue Y. Nabi and Nicolas Vu. Sue Y. Nabi was the CEO of both L’Oreal and Lancôme for 20 years and has created some of the most successful products in the world, including La vie est belle fragrance, Visionnaire and Genifique eye serums and more…
Orveda’s approach is very centred around the products being used. The “healing” treatments harness the power of Orveda’s “works with your skin, not against it” philosophy. Using highly-concentrated, clean, green and vegan formulations, Orveda’s Contouring & Deep Tissue Massage is a bespoke treatment, individually tailored to clients’ unique skin concerns, needs and dreams. A holistic, multi-sensorial and stress-relieving, zen experience using Orveda’s bestsellers via the combination of expert healing hands, professional tools, and contouring deep tissue massage helps to boost circulation, remove toxins, brighten skin and create an overall sense of calm. The final skin result is visible rejuvenation, Orveda’s trademark “ironing” effect as well as a signature glow.
Both the 40 minute Fix and Glow treatment and the 60 minute Heal and Glow Therapy, are individually tailored to clients’ unique skin concerns, needs and dreams – that empowers skin’s ‘self-healing’ to activate a clinically-proven glow.
The application of Orveda’s bestsellers via the combination of expert healing hands, professional tools, and deep massage helps to boost circulation, remove toxins, brighten skin and activate healthy skin glow.
Not only was this type of facial manipulation a first for me to experience but I genuinely saw visible skin rejuvenation.
Orveda’s trademark “ironing” effect creates firmer and sharper facial contours; as well as a visible, fresh-look, signature glow that has the aim of rivalling make-up rendering the reapplication of foundation redundant.
