At Raison d’Etre we create tailor made spa- and wellness concepts for our clients and a great part of a spa concept is of course the skin care products. We test and evaluate many product brands in order to find the right skin care brand for each spa concept we create.
We want to ensure the products match our criteria when it comes to quality, results and ingredients before we tie the brand to a concept.
There is not one brand that is a winner for us, as it truly depends on the concept we create and the market, but of course we have our favorite products among all the products we have tried. Some are old time favorites and some are new on our list.
Here are some of our favorite products that we have tested and used during 2015:
