Exfoliating and rejuvenating, this luxurious new treatment provides the ultimate summer prep

Summer is almost upon us, meaning so too are unforeseen pool parties and unpremeditated beach trips. Indeed, being swimsuit ready is at the top of the priority list, and so there’s no better time better than now to make use of the new buffering, exfoliating treatment by luxury French skincare brand Sothys.

The Sensations Orientales treatment, brought forth by French skincare brand Sothys Paris, is inspired by ancient oriental traditions — and as such, is suitably blissful. It begins with a drizzling of exfoliating syrup onto the body, to gently exfoliate and prep the skin, before moving onto the crux of the treatment, a one-of-a-kind handmade scrubbing claystone. The claystone, a utensil crafted in traditional pottery in the heart of Corrèze, France, is massaged across the body to energise the skin and improve its circulation. To wrap things up, soothing, hot towels are used to wipe away the exfoliating syrup before warm nourishing amber and date oil is massaged into the body.

The massage is part of a package brought forth by the luxurious duo, Sothys and The Cordis hotel, entitled Sensational Escape. In it, the massage is accompanied by a glass of sparkling wine and a complimentary travel bag of divine Sothys’ body products to take home. In what is, quite possibly, the most indulgent way to kickstart an experience, the Cordis is also offering the opportunity to come in early to enjoy Chuan Spa’s heated roof-top pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and herbal steam room, prior to the treatment.

Leaving behind a glowing figure that’s prepared for all seaside sojourns, now marks the perfect time to take advantage of Sothys’ luxurious new collaboration. Be sure to lock it in promptly though, only available until 3rd December, this is one pre-summer preparation you won’t want to miss out on.
