A glorious experience

As part of our mission to hold back the years, we wanted to test out some rejuvenating facials. First stop, Sam Harrington-Lowe went to try the Alpha H Liquid Gold facial at Glorious Spa (Worthing and Chichester)

About the spas
The Glorious Spa philosophy is to provide spa quality treatments on the High Street, and they have certainly cracked that. With two spas already in Chichester and Worthing they’re expanding again with a third due to open on the south coast before Christmas. Experts in waxing, lash extensions and of course manicures and pedicures these guys are constantly looking for the latest treatments that are taking the beauty industry by storm to add to their treatment menu.

What else can you tell us?
These unique spas are also the perfect place for a get together with sumptuous leather chairs, Nespresso coffee, and the odd glass of fizz. This is a great place for groups as they can accommodate multiple treatments at any one time. So if you’re celebrating a wedding, hen party, birthday party etc, this is a great choice.

Tell us about the facial
If there was ever a thing everyone should have on a Friday afternoon, the Alpha H Liquid Gold facial is it. Not only will it knock a few years off your tired skin and give you a fresh glow, it leaves you walking on air. Using the Alpha H range of products, made with naturally-derived ingredients glycolic acid and liquorice extract, this is designed to revitalise your skin and improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

What happens during the facial?
It starts with a cleanse, which is then followed by a scrub. The mask part is where it gets interesting – it’s applied and your face covered with clingfilm and a hot towel to keep the heat and moisture in, and is actually warm and comforting.

During the course of the treatment you have a hand and arm massage, followed by removal of the mask, and then a moisture complex is used to massage the face. So lovely to have your forehead and scalp massaged, where all the tension is stored. I literally floated out.

Can you see a difference?
Absolutely. It’s a facial you can choose to wear make-up over afterwards, but I was so pleased with my fresh looking face I didn’t wear make-up for a few days. The glycolic peel gave my skin a glow but without any stinging or redness. I’m very impressed, and I’ve had a lot of facials.

Anything else to know?
I’ve been to the Glorious spas a few times and they’ve always been great. The sort of place that does a manicure properly, and doesn’t cut your treatment short when they think you’re not looking. It’s a bright, contemporary space with friendly staff and it’s definitely worth signing up for their newsletter as they do lots of special offers each month. Top tip!LiquidGold_100ml-(new)-(2)
