Best Facials - 22 Jul 2010
Irish Tatler commends ESPA at the g
If like me you've had a LOT of facials, you're always keen to hear what other people recommend. So when ESPA at the g comes Highly Commended at The Irish Tatler Spa Awards 2010 well, we think it might be the most perfect pre-Galway races face-treat a girl could have!
The facial in questions is The ESPA Skin Brightening Facial and to celebrate their Award, ESPA at the g are launching a limited edition ‘Brighten and Refresh’ available Sunday through Thursday from July 1st until the end of September.
Experience the new Brightening Treatment Collection and take advantage of the g's unique Thermal Suite for one hour prior to the treatment itself which begins with a Relaxing ESPA Skin Brightening Facial followed by An ESPA Bright Eye-Firming Treatment. Finish off your experience in the roof top relaxation area and Zen garden with a handmade chocolate and refreshing smoothie. Lovely!
Treatment time is 1 hour and 20 minutes, cost is €105.

Eve Lom - 15 Jul 2010
New Daytime Cleanser - Glow On
I discovered Eve Lom during what was quite possibly the very best facial I ever had. It was in the Killarney Park Hotel Spa, the facial lasted for about two hours and I came away a new person.
Almost 10 years later and I still use Eve Lom. I love the thoroughness of the cleanser and the fact that it's enough in itself to get rid of all the grime, you don't need to faff about with anything else. I was looking forward to trying out their new daytime cleanser, Glow On, which the good people at Eve Lom describe as a lightweight balm that rinses off without any need to use the traditional Eve Lom muslin cloth.
So online I went, and credit card in hand I was all set to purchase my £35.00 product...only to discover the international postage was going to cost another £15.00! Takes all the good out of online shopping so instead, I will make my way to the Killarney Park Spa or Harvey Nicks in Dundrum and stock up.
Slieve Russell Spa Secrets - 07 Jul 2010
Make Up Tutorials €40.00
OK, admit it, you’ve been watching Celebrity Salon on TV3! We’re thrilled to see our friend Elaine Butler Doolin from Social & Personal take on the mantle of the beauty equivalent of Judge Judy with such style and panache (she is one of the nicest beauty gals you will ever meet).
With beauty tips in mind, if you happen to live in or around the Slieve Russell Hotel (and if you don’t why not take a drive down and spend a night there), you’ll be glad to hear that every Tuesday from 6 July – 28 September is Make-Up Tutorial night. From 7-9pm you’ll learn how to remove your make-up (properly, my friends, properly); prepare your skin for minerals, apply your mineral make up (Bare Escentuals) and walk away with a flawless finish and stunning new look. Cost is just €40.00 which is fully redeemable against products purchased on the night.
Booking is essential, call 049 952 6444 or email email@example.com.
Elemis - 01 Jul 2010
More new products and more tempting treats
During the Global Spa Summit in Istanbul I was lucky enough to catch up with Sean Harrington, Managing Director of Elemis in the UK.
Refreshingly open and willing to share the secrets to operating a successful spa treatment and product brand it's no surprise to see Elemis launching yet more new and tempting body products which will unquestionably make their way into many a bathroom.
This time it's a new Shower Cream and Skin Nourishing Hand and Body Lotion. The Shower Cream features Camelia, Macadamia and Jojoba Oils combined with extracts of Oat Kernel and Wheat Germ. Great for dry skin.
The Hand and Body Lotion also has the same ingredients but additionally, Sesame and Shea Butter along with Limanthes Alba which sounds wonderful even if I have no idea what it is!
