We’re delighted to introduce our new Spa naturals range using essential oils and a pure, natural base. Our Spa collection is divided into Restore and Relax beauty buys. We caught up with our fragrance buyer, Alice McGhee, to find out more about these two new collections.
What inspired the new Spa range?
At The White Company, we talk a lot about home life, everyday luxury and small moments; the Spa Range was designed to capture all of these. We lead such busy lives, we wanted to create a range that allows you to take time out, re-charge and indulge in some ‘me time’ at home. Whether that’s simply lighting one of the Spa Candles, bathing in the Muscle Soothing Bath Soak, treating your skin to the Superglow Body Oil or all three. You can take one element of the collection or tailor your own routine to create your own Spa at home, a luxury that you can indulge in every day, not just for special occasions.
Spa Restore Muscle Soothing Luxury Bath Soak – £30
Spa Restore Gentle Hand & Body Wash – £18
Spa Restore Luxury Hand & Body Balm – £22
Spa Restore Body Scrub – £20
Spa Restore Super Hydrating Hydra-Gel – £25
Spa Restore Luxury Candle – £25
What makes the Spa range special?
The Spa range is our first naturals range. All the formulations are natural, and both the Restore and Relax fragrances are a blend of 100% essential oils. The products have been specially formulated for The White Company to offer amazing quality and beautiful fragrance at a great price.
The choice in the products allows you to create your own bespoke pampering routine and the addition of the candle allows you to transport the fragrance throughout your home, so you can enjoy the therapeutic properties of the essential oils anywhere in the house.
What’s the difference between Spa Restore and Spa Relax?
The bespoke fragrances have been created with our perfumer and are completely unique to The White Company. The Restore fragrance is designed to be uplifting and invigorating, while Relax is definitely for winding down at the end of the day.
Spa Relax Body Polish – £20
Spa Relax Superglow Body Oil – £25
Spa Relax Luxury Bath Oil – £30
Spa Relax Sleep Well Pulse Point Oil – £12
Spa Relax Luxury Hand & Body Balm, £20
Spa Relax Gentle Hand & Body Wash – £18
What notes and ingredients are in Spa Restore – and in Spa Relax?
Restore is the more invigorating of the two, it’s a geranium-based fragrance blended with eucalyptus and mint to give it a greener, clean edge and softened with pretty neroli.
As you would expect, the Relax scent is a subtler fragrance. It’s a lovely soothing blend of lavender, calming clary sage and chamomile. It really is blissful and all you need to help unwind, de-stress and set you up for a good night’s sleep.
What’s your favourite product from the collection?
I love the Spa Restore Hydra Gel. It smells amazing and has a very interesting texture – a gel cream that is light, but absorbs quickly into skin, leaving it feeling super-soft. The gel element is cooling, so great for the warmer Summer months to re-hydrate your skin, but it’s also a great treatment product if applied overnight. The inclusion of vitamin E and jojoba oil ensure that your skin is left feeling incredibly nourished.
If a customer was looking to buy one product from the Spa range, what would you recommend and why?
If you are undecided as to which scent to buy, the pulse point oils are a great & inexpensive way to try both fragrances and decide which you prefer. At £12, they’re great to carry in your handbag and apply to your temples or wrists to de-stress whilst you’re on the go or keep next to your bed and apply at night to unwind.
Once you’ve decided on the scent, if you are looking for one product from Restore then either the Restore Hydra Gel for the reasons above or the Body Scrub. It’s made with particles of olive stone to brighten skin and is blended with coconut oil to soften, and it leaves your skin looking really healthy.
The Luxury Bath Oil in the Relax fragrance is a great product – the combination of the scent, which leaves your skin subtly scented, with the argan oil to nourish your skin, makes it a really lovely product to use in the bath.
