Last week I paid a visit to One Aldwych, a five star luxury hotel located minutes away from Covent Garden …

The reason for my visit was to enjoy a dip in this very lovely pool with its underwater sounds and uber-relaxing visuals and …

… it was to try the 75-minute signature glow facial from OSKIA, which I absolutely loved for many reasons.

Firstly, the nutritional value of the OSKIA products really impressed me. Whilst I’m not a beauty expert I do know what my skin likes and the more natural the product, the happier my face is.

The basis for OSKIA’s skincare are natural ingredients with the healing value of sulphur being an influencing factor in the starting up of this brand. And when my skin was being cleansed, steamed, treated and massaged, the entire experience felt soothing and very relaxing – so much so I felt like a brand new person stepping out of the hotel.

Sometimes when you have a facial you feel the tingly sensation of the ingredients working on your skin. In the case of the OSKIA facial, you feel like your skin is being nourished and brought back to life. I actually mentioned during the facial that I felt my face was getting more nutrition than the rest of my body has been for a long while. It was 75-minutes of absolute bliss and not because it was me being horizontal for over an hour without my two-year old jumping on me.

After the facial, I stepped back into this gorgeous lift and headed upstairs to the bar. But of course. 😉

In fact, there were plenty of gorgeous details in this hotel and whilst I haven’t seen the bedrooms – I’m a sucker for beautiful flowers.

… I thoroughly enjoyed the vodka-based cocktail called Rose de Mei, which was inspired by the OSKIA facial I’d just had. Throughout the facial the aroma of rose lingered, which I loved. So to savour one of my favourite scents in a cocktail glass moments later was heavenly. A couple of the other ingredients included Coco Kanu coconut rum and lemon. With layers of different flavours, this was a great cocktail.

One Aldwych’s Sip & Spa ticks all the boxes for me. It was a wonderfully indulgent time out and I left the hotel feeling a million dollars. My skin was very very happy too.

Disclaimer: My experience at One Aldwych was complimentary for the purpose of the review. But if you know my blog, you’ll also know that I like to think I know what a good cocktail is. As for the facial, my face was truly glowing and that is why I recommend it.
