The Linda Lloyd range of skincare products launched exclusively in Dickens and Jones, Regent Street, W1 this September, followed by the opening of an exclusive Linda Lloyd in-store Therapy suite.
The new skincare range consists of Royal Orchid (face), Samui (body), Pattaya (aromatherapy oils), and Thonburi (for men), combining the best of western science with the philosophies and healing traditions of the East.
Each product has been created to reflect the same guiding principles of Le Spa: affordable indulgence.
Le Spa was launched in 1997 with two sites in Stroud and Stratton, Gloucestershire. Le Spa offers an holistic environment to feed, nurture and enrich a sense of inner well being, bringing a little bit of Thailand and Eastern principles to the Cotswold countryside.
After launching Le Spa, Linda Lloyd, now aged 41, travelled extensively throughout the Far East to research and create her own unique luxury brand of skincare products using Thai herbs and special infusions.
The Linda Lloyd range and its Eastern ingredients includes the ever-popular Green Tea and Ginseng, coupled with more unusual ingredients such as Gotu Kola, Spirulina, Turmeric and Ginko Biloba. Gotu Kola is renowned for its skin healing properties and to enhance relaxation and meditation.
Linda Lloyd started out in business running the children’s nurseries within leading health and fitness chains. On selling the company “Gate House” in 1996 she decided to invest her money into creating her dream, Le Spa.
Stratton Place, Cirencester is her flagship: a beautiful listed building, set in glorious and extensive grounds offering a fully equipped gym, swimming pool, whirlpool spa, sauna, steam room, luxury body massages and exfoliation scrubs, re-hydrating facials, Reiki, and crystal healing.
The Lomi Lomi Massage, is a speciality of the house, a 90 minute holistic body treatment that includes Indian head massage, reflexology and Tsuedo point aromatherapy.
For those wishing to indulge in Le Spa experience to the full, the main house, offers 9 rooms, all beautifully and individually decorated to the highest standards,
Linda Lloyd says:
“Guests find a unique atmosphere of calm, tranquillity and balance at Stratton Place, and I hope by offering my new range of products I can make a small part of it accessible to everyone”.
” The last twenty years has seen a vast increase in the popularity of treatments and therapies outside the boundaries of Western thought, and more and more people are embracing these ideas with an open mind.”
“Our partnership with Dickens & Jones and House of Fraser is very exciting. They saw instantly the niche that our products were trying to fill, - indulgence and pampering in a jar, with an Eastern flavour. Dickens and Jones is very therapy-led, and it is a fitting environment in which to launch our products and therapy suite into the retail market “.
