Although many actors might nominate its Red Carpet Facials for the Special Effects category, Natura Bissé is not in line for a BAFTA itself – however, in the run up to Sunday’s ceremony, it’s hosting an exclusive BAFTA suite at The Sanderson Hotel’s Agua Spa to beautify attending celebs and VIPs. Bissé’s Diamond Iced Crystal Facial will be performed from the 99.995% pure air confines of a unique Natura Bissé BUBBLE which serves to maximise the effects of the treatment – not to mention a range of auxiliary actions from hastening physical recovery to improving concentration. Tennis ace Rafael Nadal is such a fan that he actually owns two – one of which he uses to exercise in!
But back to the facial itself which I trialled a couple of weeks ago. It promotes both inner calm and outer radiance: ice cold gem crystals are placed on the chakra points of the face in conjunction with targeted massage and followed by a c. 20% glycolic acid preparation and the application of a masque formulated with diamond dust. Even though the acid is high impact, there’s no risk of dark-glasses-large-hatted downtime as it only remains active for a limited period so you can absolutely go from spa to party. However the effects intensify with time and it was actually over the course of the following few days that I really noticed an increase in radiance. Natura Bissé is a below-the-radar luxury brand with a cult following and a product line and treatment menu that are truly phenomenal.
Unfortunately civilians can’t experience it (yet) from within the BUBBLE – that's off on a world tour – but the Natura Bissé Diamond Experience facial, 90mins, £180, is available at Agua Spa.
