New spa opens in the heart of central London

W London Leicester Square Away SpaLast week, after dodging through Chinatown’s people-heavy streets, late and stressed, I got whisked upstairs to the sixth floor of the newest hotel in town – W London Leicester Square. The hotel’s dark and minimalist hallways and corridors are a complete opposite to the spa: bright white and slightly futuristic. Flushed lacquer furnishings, fringe curtains, a sleek central lounge area and staff (also in white) speaking in whisper-like tones.

The atmosphere is definitely serene which is exactly what was intended. The treatment menu tends to the needs of tired (or partied-out) travellers – facials and body treatments by Ren and Aromatherapy Associates with relaxation and rejuvenation in mind.

I had the Away Facial which was shortened slightly (because I was late, of course) but I still managed to walk out with younger-feeling skin – the fruit enzymes in the Ren products are excellent at smoothing skin without the use of exfoliating granules or beads.

Ren Omega 3 Night Repair Serum

In the goodie bag was my now-favourite product – Ren Omega 3 Night Repair Serum. It’s a lightweight serum that is meant to help skin repair overnight but I can’t resist its gorgeousness with a light and zingy lemon scent, so I’ve been slathering it on morning and night and some of the day in between too. I’m sure Ren won’t mind will they?!
