I try: Thalgo’s Heart of the Ocean Ritual Facial at Chuan Spa



When I heard that a new ocean-inspired facial had just launched at the Langham Auckland’s award-winning Chuan Spa I was intrigued from the get go - summer doesn’t seem to be arriving here in a hurry, so it would be the closest I’d get to a dip in the sea for a while and I was most definitely in.
Simply called the ‘Heart of the Ocean Ritual Facial’, the little slice of bliss is a moisture boosting delight for all skin types but particularly dehydrated.  It’s is a 100 per cent marine-inspired facial that concentrates the “vital force and benefits of the ocean” to help restore perfect skin quality, delivering intense and lasting hydration, and clocking in at 55 minutes of pure heaven it’s a wonderful way to take some ‘me’ time whilst showing a little love to your skin at the same time.
The creation of marine-based beauty experts Thalgo, it uses elements from their new Source Marine skincare range made up of some beautiful new offerings honouring the wonders of the sea.
It begins with a relaxing welcome massage, after which your skin is gently cleansed and exfoliated using a  Melt-In Scrub with Marine Crystals that uses enzymatic and mechanical elements to get you glowing. A deepl hydrating serum is then applied with Thalgo's signature Heart of the Ocean massage, which is also inspired by the movements of the sea, with enveloping wave movements and a cascade of soothing strokes. Next up a moisturising dual mask delivers intense and lasting hydration to get things feeling ultra plumped up and silky. An application of Thalgo’s Hydra Marine 24H Gel Cream completes the treatment and leaves the skin rehydrated, its texture smooth, plump and radiant. Just perfection.
I need absolutely no excuse to visit Chuan Spa at Auckland’s Langham Hotel, a veritable oasis in the inner city that never fails to make me smile. It also usually leaves me with a bright new outlook as well as some seriously great skin, and I always make sure that I arrive early to experience their Tri-bathing ritual, which makes things even that more gorgeous and I highly recommend as well.
