What's happening at JOSSPA this Autumn?

So our hot summer is over, when we unveiled our limbs and worshiped the sun gods at every opportunity; skin care was a top priority. We’ve replaced our flipflops for wellies and shorts for sweaters and as we now creep into autumn, arms and legs recede under layers of cosy clothing, so those months of intensive buffing and bronzing go by the wayside and skin care takes a back seat.

Looking after yourself is still vitally important and you shouldn’t miss indulging yourself in treats and treatments, as weeks of neglected work will catch up with you. Autumnal pampering is indulgent and nourishing, with deep relaxing massages as the perfect antidote to dark days and long nights to take the edge off autumn and help you stave off the impending winter blues.

Josspa, a unique urban retreat based in Cheltenham, is launching its new Time For Yourself initiative this November. Treat yourself by purchasing 3 energising facials, a range of luxury massages, Shellac manicures and pedicures or any treatment of your choice and you will receive your 4th treatment free! (This is valid for 6 months from date of purchase.) What a wonderful gift to give (yourself) this Christmas.

It’s time to start preparing for those festive parties and Josspa has
launched its new organic wonder product, Silk Fibre Lash Mascara. Two application wands are used, one of which is gel based to ensure longevity of the mascara and will increase the length of your lashes by a whopping 150%, giving you beautiful, natural curves. The mascara will stay in place permanently until gently removed by applying warm water to the eyes with a cotton pad. This a far more affordable solution to false eyelashes with all the drama of the application.

A natural winter tan is of utmost importance in party season and Josspa has unearthed the South Seas tanning method, which is a prescriptive, paraben-free solution that is used in luxury spas around the world. The tan will produce a natural full-body glow you require not leaving you with an orange, streaky look.

Finally, to keep those nails perfect when having Shellac nail treatments, Josspa has discovered a gel to wear under the colour which not only protects your natural nails from softening it gives added strength to prevent nail tips chipping.
