Heralded as one of the finest hotels in Asia, the Imperial Hotel is one of my favourite relaxing destinations in Delhi. It is the ultimate in refined and understated luxury.
The stunning Mughal inspired spa at the Imperial Hotel is called Sufi. Two weeks ago on International Women’s Day I was invited to the launch of the Imperial Hotel’s exclusive Sufi botanical and organic skin care range. Last year saw the launch of the divine Sufi eau de toilette and essential oils and now skincare…the brand is taking more and more space on my bathroom shelf!
I have been using three products from the new range (Daylight Moisturizer, Downpore Cleanser and Night Rose Moisturizer) for two weeks and highly recommend them. The new range comprises of eight products:
Monsoon Rose which is a pure Damascus Rose Water to use as a perfect toner. Rose water smells amazing, it is anti-inflamatory making it great for breakouts and it is also a natural moisturiser so it won’t dry your skin. It is also great to use instead of regular water to mix into herbal face masks before applying.
Open pore cleanser with key notes of Neroli, Pettigrain, Vitamin C and Zinc – an astringent and light lotion for oily and combination skin to purify and balance. I’ve been using it and it really works.
Down pore cleanser with active ingredients of Sandalwood and Rose essential oils, Aloe Vera, Papain Enzyme and Vitamin E to create a hydrating cleanse.
Lift Off make-up remover which is also safe for the eyes.
Night Rose Moisturizer for mature, dry or dehydrated skin with Shea Butter, Jojoba Seed Oil, Fig and Rose essential oils. I decided to use this even though I don’t have mature, dry or dehydrated skin, why? I love the smell! I couldn’t resist trying it.
Daylight Moisturizer with Pearl Extract, Healing Aloe Vera and Willow Bark Extract to soothe and even out the skin. I’ve been using this product and it’s very light, smells amazing and keeps my skin hydrated for the entire day even in air conditioning.
SUFI Ultra Soft Body Cream in 200ml which deeply nourishes with active regenerating ingredients of Ginger, Neem Leaf, Wild Gooseberry Extract, Gota Kola and Indian Ginseng.
SUFI Eyes which is an excellent blend for reducing dark shadows and sign of stress from the delicate eye tissue.
The products are available in 100ml and 50ml travel sizes (image above) and you can buy them at the Imperial Hotel boutique and Salon.
