You won’t find a single member of Grazia Team Beauty who doesn’t have a Clarins product of one kind or another in their bag of makeup staples.
Beauty Director Liz Hambleton swears by their Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil, Associate Beauty Editor Lauren Murdoch-Smith can’t live without the genius Extra Firming Body Cream, Beauty Assistant Rose Beer is a self-confessed Gentle Foaming Cleanser addict, while Beauty Co-ordinator Angelica Hermon is known to hide her Bath and Shower Concentrate from her visiting guests and boyfriend. With this in mind, you can imagine the jealously levels when we discovered that Clarins were to open a brand new My Blend Spa in Paris. Created by Dr. Olivier Courtin, a second-generation member of the brand’s founding family, the My Blend menu offers custom-tailored skin treatments, promising a new well-being philosophy termed “ego-ology,” (which we naturally love the sound of). Housed in the brand new and uber lux hotel Le Royal Monceau, the spa boasts, a sauna, hamman, pool and lounge, as well as seven private rooms dedicated to My Blend treatments in which a “beauty coach” analyses the individual’s skin and lifestyle before compiling a personalized regime for them. We’ll see you there! Oh and when can we have one in London please Clarins?
