The Equinox African Signature Ritual

The Equinox Spa, set inside Cape Town’s premium Cape Royale Luxury Hotel, is one of those memorably luxe spots. From the friendly welcome to the tasteful décor, it’s a world away from your everyday existence.

Highly skilled therapists draw from both international and cultural African traditions, combining the two to give clients a superb pampering experience. Our recommended must-try this month is the Equinox African Signature Ritual, a 75- minute journey that takes you from a deep back massage – using internationally renowned products such as Theravine™ – with tiny dumbbells to massage the neck and shoulder area to a luxurious Appetiser Facial, ending with a hand and foot treatment.

CHANEL Hydra Beauty Nutrition


As we enter a very cold winter, our face and lips are left a little lacklustre and dehydrated. Chanel’s Hydra Beauty Nutrition not only soothes skin with its rich texture, but hydrates it with its magnificent hydrating agents and essential lipids. The smell is also divine as it finishes with lovely floral notes. Really and truly the best day cream I have ever used!

Use in conjunction with their Hydramax + Active Nutrition Lip Care, which draws its inspiration from the protective power of waxes that coat camellia petals in winter. Rich and lightly scented, apply to lips for protection before using your favourite lip colour.

Extracted from the camellia flower, Camellia Alba PFA lip balm moisturizes and maintains your lips’ optimal hydration levels. Every time you apply, it leaves your pout soft, plumped and naturally rosy.
