Maybe it is the fact that I am 30+ or that my lifestyle has changed to take more care of myself… but this year one of my resolutions was: “less make-up more skin care” and with that said I started a thoughtful research of skin treatments, facials and products in Geneva.
It was not long until I stumbled upon La Mer and well by consequence… SPA de La Mer at The President Wilson Hotel. The reviews and recommendations of the famous Creme de la Mer could not be enough and all the product are praised by the press & media. So I had to see myself!
I was honoured to be #invited for the treatment, but so you can profit of this wonderful experience, I have a special code for you!

SPA de La Mer
SPA de La Mer :
Private SPA Suite
My SPA de la Mer experience started by heading to the SPA reception located at the right of the Hotel’s reception. Welcomed by a smile, I was asked to follow them to my private suite, where I would spend 30′ in the Jacuzzi bubbling in hot water and forgetting about all my to do lists ( LOL).
The private suite has a 2 beds for treatments for a couples massage, I discovered they have a “Essence for Two” package that is fantastic and a great idea for an anniversary or a birthday present!
The SPA Suite has a private jacuzzi, steam and sauna and can be reserved as a compliment of a treatment or for a couples massage.
I was super happy to spend 30′ there, floating. It was so relaxing! In addition, the SPA Suite has view over the pool so it gives a feeling of outdoor, but being indoor. Very very relaxing.

Spa de La Mer Custom Facial:
After spending 30′ in bubbling hot water I was asked to follow my Aesthetician to my facial cabin. It was an experience by its own, since there is a private elevator from the Spa Suite to the cabins and then when you open you have a beautiful room with natural light everywhere and the treatment bed in the middle.
I loved that there is natural light, it gives a feeling of freedom and energy resource!
The Custom Facial starts with a little chat with your Aesthetician; she asked me how I feel my skin, how I want it to feel after the facial and she also explained about La Mer brand, the story and the Miracle Broth® ingredient found in every product of La Mer.
The Custom La Mer facial was a 75′ bliss and relaxation. It consists in different steps including cleaning, exfoliation, mask, serum, creme and sunscreen too (very important!)
The uniqueness of La Mer facials is the way they massage the face during the treatment, this stimulates the muscles and regenerates the cels in the face. I have to admit I fell asleep during the treatment! It is so relaxing that you just let yourself gooooo.
How did my face feel after the treatment?
Well, there is a lot of different products, so it felt moist and bouncy, loved the glowing effect I was looking forward. I feel like after winter our skin can look dull and grey so a good exfoliation and mask can bring back that radiance and glowy healthy look!
Even after a couple of day my skin was elastic and looking young and glowing!
