A few steps away from Place des Vosges, the French brand of vinotherapy Caudalie recently opened its spa shop, in the very heart of the Haut Marais. In a jewel of 45m2, we discover all range of products, but also exclusivities like the Fresh Crushed Cabernet, with which one can compose its own exfoliating scrub on the spot, using 100% natural ingredients. Grape seeds, brown sugar, honey from Gironde, essential oil of rosemary, lemon, geranium, etc., there are many mixes possible.
An ode in the vineyard
The decoration of the shop is a tribute to the vine, with a rough lumber store front. The inside adorns itself with oak and marble. Pictures of vineyards and photographs, which trace the history of the brand, dress up the walls. In the centre of the room stands the “Bar Beauté Barrique” (the “Barrel Beauty Bar”), which proposes to test alone cosmetics alone or with a “vinotherapist“ (personalized appointments are available on request). In addition, we can enjoy an organic herbal tea Caudalie or an organic freshly squeezed grape juice.
An upscale spa
Concerning the spa, we are tempted to try the face care: “The Hydrating Moment Vinosource”, made for dry to very dry skin types. It starts with a deep face cleansing, followed by a modelling with fresh grape, then another session with essential oil, to deeply feed the epidermis. It ends with a moisturizing mask. Body cares are also proposed.
Open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10a.m. to 7p.m.
Face care “Hydrating Moment Vinosource”: €80 for a 50-minute duration.
