“There is an Alice In Wonderland vibe to the fit-out downstairs, with daffodil yellow highlights, vintage crystal chandeliers and clouds of artificial flowers brightening the space,” said Rollard.“Upstairs there is a more traditional spa feeling – pale grey walls, a restored fireplace filled with candles, sheer curtains – but I’ve added some character by having the original ceiling roses restored and a Tord Boontje Midsummer light fitting installed.”
Shine Skin & Body has become the go-to salon for Melburnians who are serious about skincare, and especially about clearing acne, blackheads and other congestion issues. Extraction facials are their speciality and any beauty aficionado knows that keeping pores clean is the key to hydration and healthy skin.
“All members of our staff are specifically trained to perform extractions and facial techniques that, when used in conjunction with recommended products, result in a smoother, clearer complexion,” said Rollard.
A number of other specialist treatments are available, including anti-aging facials that utilise retinol, vitamin C and other power hitters to rejuvenate, firm and add radiance to tired skin. The latest LED light therapy, known as Healite, can be added to any facial. With three different pain free therapies available, clients can choose to refresh, reduce the signs of ageing, or sterilise skin to combat acne and blemishes.
For a complete rejuvenation package, it is also possible to book nail, waxing, massage and tanning appointments.
Shine Skin & Body’s new Richmond salon is now open for appointments every day except Sunday, with extended hours on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings.
