Skin Day Spa is situated at the bottom of Chapel St in Melbourne.
This inner city sanctuary is the perfect place to unwind and get treated to some of the best organic treatments for your skin, body and soul. When I arrive I’m greeted by the owner, Pauline. An experienced therapist Pauline invites me over to their relaxation area and gets me a herbal tea while I fill in my details for my facial.
After filling in my client consultation form with some herbal tea I am shown through to the treatment room where I get changed and into the warm bed. Pauline explains the treatment to me as a relaxing but age defying facial treatment with all organic organicspa products, it sounds divine!
Beginning with the double cleansing process a cream cleanser is used to wash away my makeup and thoroughly clean my skin. Then a double exfoliation is also used, beginning with a AHA mask followed by a light exfoliation with walnut shell to deeply buff my skin. The process is deeply refining on the skin and is active enough that I can feel it working, but it is a totally comfortable process. A good exfoliation that brings up some circulation is essential to great skin health that is the cornerstone of professional treatments.
When the hydrating mask is applied Pauline expertly massages my arms and hands, which feels divine especially when you work with your hands a lot. Skin Day Spa have developed their own organic body range and one of the body butters is used which feels and smells amazing. She tells me I have some scar tissue in one of my forearms, which explains why my wrists keep clicking out of place! It’s at this stage I reach an utter place of relaxation.
Finally I am treated to a massage that covers my back, decollate and face. The massage is firm, drains my lymphatics and firms my skin even further.
We finish with beautifully hydrating serum, moisturiser and eye cream from the organicsceuticals collection to finish this powerful anti ageing treatment.
Feeling completely relaxed I am left to dress in my own time and meet Pauline at the front of the salon. Skin Day Spa offer a broad range of facials for skin treatment, as well as body treatments, massage and full beauty services. Organic products are used to ensure they keep the best of skin health for their clients. For clients that like the more intense treatments microdermabrasion and glycolic peels are also available.
This urban retreat truly lives up to it’s motto: Spa feel – clinical results. I’ll be back for my organic facial to keep my skin healthy and youthful.
