Back in time at the Chanel au Ritz Paris

There’s nothing that says Paris quite like Chanel. Here, Fashion & Beauty Director Billie Iveson trials Le Grand Soin at Chanel au Ritz Paris.

The ultimate in luxury is Le Grand Soin at Chanel au Ritz: a two hour facial that is customised to your individual skin concerns, and a facial massage that leaves your skin uplifted and plump. The rooms are beautifully designed with Chanel touches, from the Cameilla flowers on the bed, mirror engraved walls and personal bathrooms.

I had just come off a flight so it was easy to be transported away. Take your swimsuit and go early to enjoy the Ritz pool before your treatment.

Post treatment your facialist can apply Chanel makeup if you are going back out into the world. I chose to skip this and allow my skin to drink up all the hydration. Enjoy a vegetable juice in the relaxation area overlooking the pool before, reluctantly, leaving.
