The ultimate luxury spa treatment?

Some spa treatments are about wellness, some are about indulgence, but all of them are about joy - and what could be more joyful than a spa treatment called the Champagne and Truffles Facial? At the adult-only Lincombe Spa at Lincombe Hall Hotel in Devon, they work with skincare brand Temple Spa to deliver a collection of beautiful and luxurious spa treatments, including this beautiful facial. Here, Spa Manager Jaydee Walmsley explains what it is and what makes it so special.

What is the Champagne and Truffles Facial?

It’s our super luxe, 90-minute facial treatment, but it includes a lot more than a regular facial. There are elements incorporating a hot stone back and shoulder massage as well, for example. The products used are a key part of the experience too, featuring Temple Spa's award-winning truffle skincare products with a deep cleansing ritual.

What does it involve?

The truffle products are deeply hydrating and nourishing, rejuvenating the skin with radiance and lustre as well as powerful anti-ageing goodness. In addition, the treatment features a specialist lifting massage, a warm alginate mask and cold stone therapy. These elements work together to iron out deep lines and wrinkles, helping to strengthen your muscle tone and reduce puffiness, leaving skin looking glowing and healthy. We also include a glass of Champagne and a handmade truffle to enjoy at the end as well, so it's all very luxurious.

Where does it come from?

It’s created by Temple Spa, drawing on their expert knowledge of wellbeing experience and skincare inspired by Mediterranean ingredients. These products are hall imbued with the the most luxurious things in life - black summer truffles, champagne, diamonds, strawberries, chocolate, gold and silk, combined with skin boosting peptides to help reduce the appearance of lines and deep wrinkles.

Who’s it recommended for?

I would recommend it to anyone with mature skin because of it’s rich, anti-ageing and brightening properties.

Is there anyone who shouldn't have it?

It isn't suitable for anyone who's allergic to shellfish or iodine because of the algae mask. We also wouldn't recommend it during active cancer treatment.

What do you recommend doing before or after the treatment to make the most of it?

Beforehand I would suggest using the facilities to prepare mind and body for your treatment. Then shower so that afterwards you can leave the products on your skin overnight to work their magic. I would suggest avoiding make-up or excessive heat for the rest of the day, and as there is a peel element you shouldn't exfoliate for four days post treatment.
