ISHGA’S LONDON DEBUT
ishga, the award-winning skincare range that blends a mineral-rich potent seaweed extract with organic ingredients and essential oils, has made its London debut at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Battersea. Sustainably sourced, and formulated and manufactured in the Hebrides, ishga offers natural, results-driven products in addition to professional spa treatments. Combining the natural resources of the pure, pristine shores of the Hebrides with locally sourced, nutrient-rich and sustainably harvested seaweed, the organic range (certified by the Soil Association) is found in some of the UK’s leading spas and retail stores worldwide. A trending ingredient, seaweed is rich in polyphenols and provides protection against the environment by neutralising free radicals. The new ishga Face and Body Experience is both invigorating and relaxing; designed to remove muscle tension and in turn, re-energising the body. The facial combines a gentle, yet thorough cleanse, exfoliation, tone and moisturise using a powerful blend of organic seaweed high in antioxidants and anti-ageing benefits. The treatment costs £80 for 55 minutes.
BRING ON THE MAGIC
If there’s one thing to get excited about at Christmas, it’s the Jo Malone festive collections. This year’s offering – titled Magic & Mayhem – remains classic with a whimsical twist of colour. Each Christmas, Jo Malone typically welcomes a new cologne, and this year it’s Rose & Magnolia, comprising notes of Damascena rose, patchouli and warm amber. The classic Jo Malone bottle is dressed in colbolt blue with a gold trim and bright cap. For the 4th year running, Orange Bitters will also make its return! Popular scents (including Pomegranate Noir) will be housed in limited edition bottles.
