We’re a pretty satisfied bunch, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t covetous. Sometimes we see things out there that we just must have. Cool Things We Want is an archive of those earthly desires.
While searching for original and escapist ways to take care of our personal wellness (and sanity) while also keeping safely close-to-home, we could think of nothing more indulgent than putting in a bit of time at the spa. Lo and behold, local skincare brand Sangre de Fruta Botanical has just teamed up with CHI, The Spa to create an exclusive and sensual new spring menu of West Coast inspired spa treatments, now available by reservation at their downtown Vancouver location inside the Shangri-La hotel.
This is not a paid advertisement of any kind. We just really dig the products from Sangre de Fruta and are stoked that their qualities have caught the attention of the Shangri-La to a degree where a collaboration like this can take place.
Drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of our PNW surroundings, each of the four treatments currently available have been specially designed to highlight the local skincare company’s products, including their Botanical Body Cream, Facial and Body Serums, and Tonic. The entire line-up of Sangre de Fruta products features locally harvested and wild ingredients, artfully created in their Bowen Island workshop, with a series of scents – Rose No. 1, Neroli Forever, or Jasmin de Nuit – that are both timeless and transportive.
In the expert hands of CHI, The Spa’s massage therapists and aestheticians, it’s difficult to imagine a more luxuriant experience could be had whilst remaining in the city. As an added bonus, for a limited time the spa is offering a special “Sangre de Fruta Experience” package, including 60-minute massage and botanical hair treatment for $225.
