As the last of the BBQs sizzle out and the long dark nights creep in, most of us are in need of some R and R. It is the perfect time to pamper yourself in preparation for the cold winds, rainy nights and for frost bitten toes. However, as the festival season ends and the end of the month is fast approaching purse strings might be tight. I have the solution. For those of you who can’t quite stretch to a spa retreat, but are nevertheless in need of detoxing and rejuvenation..ILA is the answer to your prayers! With a range of products from energizing, skin revitalizing scrubs to face oils that leave your skin glowing.
From the Sanskrit word for earth, ILA has been created- to quote the website- as a ‘source of well-being’. Free of all chemicals these perfect luxurious treatments are purity in little pots. All the ingredients are sourced from local produce and are harvested in unity with nature. ILA was established by Denise Leicester, who has an in depth knowledge of many holistic healing methods, for women who want to achieve an all embracing balance, internally and externally.
So why not curl up for a girly night in and indulge in these heavenly treatments. I recommend the ‘Body Scrub for Energizing and Detoxing’ (£34.26) which I love as it leaves you truely relaxed and smelling divine!
