Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon Invites Guests to Get That Festive Season Glow at the Ritz Spa
Loved by A-listers and clinical practitioners alike, with non-paid endorsements from some glossy influencers – think Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Sienna Miller and Jessica Alba - iS Clinical has become the under-the-radar skincare line of the moment, and has landed at the Ritz Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon just in time for the holidays.
And why all the buzz surrounding the US-born brand and its celebrity facials? Because the formulas in these understated blue bottles are actually a force of nature, combining highly active, plant-derived extracts, vitamins A to E, stem cells and ceramides to deliver the most notable results in the least amount of time and to directly tackle specific skin concerns.
The Ritz Spa offers two iS Clinical Facials:
iS Clinical Fire and Ice Facial
Experience the resurfacing and rejuvenation of the legendary Fire and Ice Facial.
Designed to rapidly and safely resurface the skin, this professional treatment involves the combination of warming and cooling sensations that will leave skin feeling refreshed and invigorated.
Often referred to as the “Red Carpet Facial,” it has been the go-to treatment of celebrities and non-celebrities alike for its effective benefits.
The treatment begins with a thorough cleanse using the Cleansing Complex, a gentle but effective cleanser that contains white willow bark (a source of salicylic acid), sugar cane extract (a source of glycolic acid), chamomile oil, as well as vitamins A, C and E, that can be used by all skin types.
The fire part of treatment is a mask that is applied for a few minutes consisting of the Intensive Resurfacing Masque containing 18 percent unbuffered glycolic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, malic acid, vitamin B3, retinol and potent antioxidants, including green tea extracts. Guests may feel a slight tingle as the skin begins to feel gradually warm, and hot.
After a few moments the mask is removed with another thorough cleanse.
This is followed by the Ice part of the treatment, a rejuvenating Hydra-Intensive Cooling Masque - a soothing masque with hyaluronic acid, Japanese green tea extracts, aloe vera gel, liquorice extracts, rosemary extracts and grape seed extracts. While the masque works its magic, the Ritz Spa therapist will work theirs, with an incredible hand massage.
- Duration: 50 minutes
- Price: EUR 225
iS Clinical Exfoliating Clear Skin Facial
The Exfoliating Clear Skin Facial is aimed at achieving smooth, polished skin with a gentle exfoliation combined with soothing hydration to improve oily, congested, and blemish-prone skin.
This advanced treatment helps to deep clean and minimize the appearance of large pores. A clarifying masque is applied to gently remove impurities, followed by extractions to further clear out any dirt or debris within the skin.
A gentle mist, hydration serum, and cooling masque are massaged onto the face, neck, and décolletage for a relaxing finish.
- Duration: 50 minutes
- Price: EUR 195
