One particular member of Grazia Team Beauty has just returned from a sneaky weekend trip to Soho House in Berlin for a speedy stint of culture,dancing and cocktails. While there, we nipped in to check out the fabulous Cowshed Spa - well, it'd be rude not to. Located in the basement of the hotel the spa was filled with fluffy white gowns, friendly therapists and incidentally lots of naked Germans, which we tried our hardest not to be bashful about.
Our treatment of choice? A much-needed Cowshed Facial after hitting it a bit too hard in Berlin's Kingsize Club. Said to "naturally improve the condition of the skin and enhance its appearance," the personalised pamper was the perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday morning. The hour-long treatment included everything you'd hope for from a facial (double cleanse, scalp massage, lymph drainage, you name it) and was preceded by a long bathe in the spa's blue-tiled Haman and a speedy session in one of the Cowshed relaxation pods.
And did we mention those Cowshed products? With heroes such as Evening Primrose Balancing Facial Oil and Quinoa Hydrating Moisturiser, leaving empty-handed was not an option. The perfect hangover cure if ever we've had one.
