While I was in Switzerland a few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting with Ute Leube, the founder of Amala, a luxury skincare brand carried by upscale spas such as The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York, The Spa at Four Seasons Chicago, and The Spa at Pebble Beach. I had just had a massage at the Dolder Grand Spa that incorporated her products, and I was beyond impressed. Ute talked to us aboutthe importance that her line relies on the power of nature, using whole plant ingredients for results-driven products that are pure and environmentally responsible. And, after my massage that incorporated Amala products, I was a fan. So when I found a gift bag in my room, I couldn't wait to try out the Rejuvenating Face Cream on my skin, which was dehydrated from the flight. After the first use, I was delighted with the results and have become a huge fan. According to Ute, Amala is going to be expanding in spas across the U.S. in the coming months, and I, for one, am anxiously awaiting that.
