• Deep Cleanse & Correct ExpressLED Back Facial

    Strappy dress, backless top and halterneck season is just around the corner. Luckily our friends at The Light Salon have launched the perfect treatment to dispel your summer wardrobe fears.

    The Light Salon's new Deep, Cleanse & Correct ExpressLED Back Facial has launched exclusively in Cowshed Selfridges, Oxford Street. The 45 minute (£75) treatment aims to exfoliate, deep cleanse, correct and repair the skin on your back using yellow or blue LED light, depending on your skincare concerns.

    The yellow light delivers energy deep into the body to boost your own system so it works more efficiently and effectively. It also acts on the parasympathetic system, releasing endorphins, so you feel fantastic after your treatment. The blue light uses a wavelength of 415 which is used specifically to target acne, killing bacteria and correcting the skin. Your skin will be left smooth and glowing with vitality and ready for warmer days to come.

  • Spa of the Month: Cowshed Babington House


    If you've ever wondered why we are called Cowshed, there's a simple reason: we opened our very first spa in the old cow shed at Babington House, Somerset in 1998. The products that were used in the spa treatments and bedrooms at Babington were made using ingredients from the Victorian walled garden on the estate and those are the very same products that you can buy and enjoy at home today. Manager Karen Plunkett-Jones gave us the low-down on the original, and very special, Cowshed.

  • Five Ways to Unwind Mid-Week


    We asked Jessica Sproson, Cowshed Educator & Training Manager, for her top tips to make it from Monday to Friday without getting stressed...

    1. Facial massage and steam
    'Because our Lavender Cleanser has so much of the essential oil in it, do a small massage routine when you've put the cleanser on. Use your knuckles, starting on your cheeks and working into your chin, then get your muslin cloth really warm and place it on your face for a lovely steam – it activates the essential oils which give a calming, relaxing fragrance. I do this when I travel to the Houses as they have the lavender cleanser in the bathrooms with a beautiful white flannel.'

We’re proud of our products – all made in England, they contain the finest quality essential oils, plus organic and wildcrafted plant extracts. Here are some of the outstanding ingredients that make our products so good for your skin, hair and body (while lifting your mood with their therapeutic fragrances at the same time).

  • Detox & Unwind


    Why Detox?

    By removing foods that make us feel tired and bloated and replacing them with a healthy balanced diet rich in plant based foods and lean protein, you will start to feel more energised, less stressed and lighter.

    These days our bodies work harder than ever to rid us of toxins and protect against the damage and stresses caused by modern life. With increased pollution, frenetic lifestyles and diets high in processed foods, it has become even more important to be mindful of what we are putting into our bodies.

    Detox Kitchen put plant-based whole foods, variety and flavour at the heart of their cooking and they leave out wheat, dairy and refined sugar to make you feel amazing from the inside out.

  • Ingredient Focus: Hyaluronic Acid


    Sometimes there’s a trend in beauty – a clever new treatment, must-have product or star ingredient – and before you know it, you’re seeing it everywhere. That’s what’s happening with Hyaluronic Acid right now. But what exactly is it and why is it so good for your skin?

    First of all, don’t be scared by the word ‘acid’ – if you see HA (let’s call it that for short) in a product, it’s a very good thing. HA is a sugary molecule that occurs naturally in the skin and plays a vital role in maintaining and regulating moisture (it can carry up to 1000 times its weight in water) – which is what makes skin look smooth, firm and generally ‘glowy’.

  • Review: Julia Rebaudo tries our Detox & Brighten Facial


    Julia Rebaudo - aka stylonylon - is one of our favourite lifestyle bloggers. Her dreamy photography is perfectly balanced by seriously good writing about everything from food to fashion, interiors and - of course - beauty. We sent her to try our Detox & Brighten facial. Here's what she thought...

    "I love it when slow moments during a facial – eg. while waiting for a mask to bestow its best hydrating qualities upon you – are skilfully dealt with by a relaxing scalp or hand massage. Rather than being left just to your own devices to absorb goodness, you’re being properly taken in hand and looked after...
