Sarah here from Mint with a little snapshot about our trip to Madrid and the exciting things that are on there way!
October 17th 2016 was a very exciting day for me! Firstly, we were featured in Social & Personal Magazine with our Germaine de Capuccini Timexpert Rides Facial being their treatment of the month. Secondly, I found out that I was a finalist for the Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce Business Awards in the Employee of the Year category. Thirdly and finally, I got to go on a fantastic trip to Madrid with Advanced Skincare and Germaine de Capuccini with my lovely colleague Lucie Dowling from Pembroke Kilkenny.
Tracy, Dominick and Kathleen from Advanced Skincare are always a pleasure to deal with and we knew from the agenda that we were in for a fantastic few days. We were with a wonderful group of Spa Managers and owners from Ireland who were all deeply passionate about Germaine de Capuccini.
Germaine de Capuccini is a Spanish skincare brand manufactured in Alcoy, Alicante that develop Advanced Professional Cosmetics. Their products include face and body, home-care and treatments and every product reaches an exacting standard. Mint have had this brand exclusively in Kilkenny since 2009 and all of the team are huge fans. A huge amount of research and development goes in to the creation of each product. The professional range of treatments provides a incredible array of facials, all with their own distinctive massage and the body treatments are simply amazing.
Frederick from GDC was our host for our time in Madrid and looked after us exceptionally well. One of our days had a very early start as we got a high speed train to Alcoy bear Alicante to the factory so we could see every part of the process. It was fantastic to see the laboratories and the manufacturing process and all of the care, attention and efficacy involved.
We spent the two following days at the Germaine de Capuccini Flagship Institute in Madrid training on the new Timexpert SRNS Global Anti-Aging Facial and gaining knowledge about the new SRNS 60+ cream and the wonderful Sleeping Cure programme. We will be bringing the SRNS Facial to Mint just ahead of our first birthday weekend 25th-27th November. This facial has to be experienced. The massage uses a special tool that makes it a multi sensory experience and the mask is amazing. It covers your eyes and mouth and you have no choice but to relax and take time out. We can't wait to introduce this to our clients.
We also got a chance to see the amazing Christmas sets which arrived whilst we were away. We want them all! We were lucky to experience a lot of Madrid and I have to say I can't wait to go back, it was an amazing city.
Our love for this brand keeps growing! They are always bringing out new treatments and products and it makes our jobs very exciting. If you would like to know more about Germaine de Capuccini Facials, Body Treatments or products please call in and see us or get in touch:
