Cape royale

Last week I was treated to a facial at Equinox Spa in the Cape Royale in Green Point. I have been going for facials since my first pimple (my mother is a firm believer in the adage “prevention is better than cure”.) And though this does not make me an expert, I still want to tell you about my experience anyway!

The Equinox Spa is brilliant, really, really lovely, professional and stylish. When you arrive you are greeted and given a key to a locker. You then go through to the change room, put on your gown and slippers and lock your bag and clothes away. I think this is a great concept – so often you are in a tiny room, not sure how far to undress and, inevitably, you forget to put your phone on silent. But with the changing room you really step away from the busyness of your day and start the business of relaxing and being pampered.

My therapist, Natalie, was really lovely, and the facial itself was excellent. But the best part was the massage that happened in between. I can’t actually describe how awesome it is to have a neck massage while your mask is on. So, so good!

I came out of Equinox feeling really relaxed and very impressed with the class and quality of the experience.
