Glass reviews the pro-skincare choice, Germaine de Capuccini at the Landmark Hotel, London


KNOWN as something of a cosmetics icon, Carmen Vidal has been described as “the Spanish Elizabeth Arden” since setting up the first major beauty line in Spain in the 1960s.

Early on in her career she established Germaine de Capuccini, which for decades has been the number-one brand used by skincare professionals in Spain. The rest of the world also quickly took note and the line is now available in over 80 countries.

Germaine de Capuccini Radiance C+

With one of the most advanced laboratories in Europe, carrying out cutting-edge research and development, Germaine de Capuccini is renowned for hardworking products that really make a difference. There are currently 18 separate ranges within the skincare line, which can only speak to how advanced the whole operation is.

Most recently, the company have launched a Pure Vitamin C range that delivers this key antioxidant as part of a beautifully rich face cream, an ultra pure concentrate that is activated upon use, and a elegant eye contour lotion. Available as a kit, it’s a perfect introduction to vitamin c through the use of products that are as enjoyable to use as they are effective.

The Landmark Spa in Marylebone

While products are available to use at home, Germaine de Capuccini is celebrated for their pro-skincare treatments which are available at only a handful of very exclusive spots in the UK.

The majestic Landmark hotel in Marylebone offers the Capuccini experience at their stunning spa and a recent visit to this beautiful location confirmed just how luxurious skincare can be.

The Germaine de Capuccini facial is certainly a unique experience that revolves around a wonderfully smooth ball that is incorporated into all of the massage aspects of the treatment.

The therapist was extremely skilled and considerate, communicating clearly about all stages of the facial, which started with a thorough cleanse and included a dreamy arm and scalp massage, and checking comfort levels throughout.

After a thoroughly relaxing couple of hours, the result was a gleaming visage. If you’re looking for luxurious gift for a friend or family member or, let’s face it, for yourself, a Germaine de Capuccini facial at the Landmark will tick all the boxes.
