Beauty Salon/Spa Review: Priori Yoga Facial & Deep Tissue Massage at Vanity Box Skin Couture, Perth.
A few weeks ago I got to spend some time at what I’m not afraid to say is the most elegantly decorated spa I’ve ever had the pleasure of being pampered in. And Vanity Box Skin Couture in Perth (the intersection of East Perth, Highgate & Maylands) isn’t just a pretty face, though their exquisite decor is the initial drawcard, it’s the warm welcome, ambiance and list of ‘little extras’ about a mile long that really impress. This is definitely your go-to if all out luxury and service is on the cards.
My purpose for visiting Vanity Box was to spend an hour and a half with the gorgeous and delightfully friendly owner, Suzey, to road-test one of her ‘bespoke’ treatments. Basically this means that you book in for a certain amount of time, and in consultation with Suzey decide on the day what you most feel like having done. Genius! It makes sense to be guided by what your skin and body need at the time, and I’ve never come across a service like this before, so I was very excited to see what she would suggest for me.
The room I was in, stunning right?!
My afternoon of delights starts with some candle warmed berry tea, while the strains of classical music wash over me and the relaxation process begins…
For someone so petite Suzey has strong hands, which are capable of tailoring the massage treatments to your liking, from tender butterfly kisses, all the way up to strong deep tissue work. My massage was a mixture of both, the preceding deep tissue working out all of my computer slouching sins, while the follow up gentle massage sent me to the brink of sleep. The classical music played during the second half of the massage transported me to a perfectly choreographed ballet, where her hands were the world renowned dancers, and my back the stage.
The Priori Natureceuticals Coffeeberry Relaxing Yoga Treatment (75 mins) is said to be an intensely relaxing anti-ageing treatment that reduces tension and stress levels as well as brightening the skin. This is where the little extras really kicked in.
♥ My face was massaged extensively during the facial, which was a very enjoyable experience and is meant to help with relieving stress.
♥ I was brought a much appreciated hot water bottle (with plush covering) and a warmed eye bag as it was chilly that day, both of which I loved.
♥ While the face mask was setting I received the longest and most glorious arm massage ever. Divine.
♥ Post-facial I was offered a light mineral makeup application, I gratefully accepted as my skin has been playing up lately and the thought of going bare-faced was a little scary on that day
The second room at Vanity Box – so pretty, this one’s my fave!
With my bespoke treatments complete, relaxed muscles and brighter complexion in tow, I couldn’t help but think that Vanity Box has completely hit the nail on the head in terms of combining stunning surroundings, wonderful service and a sense of being welcome in those who visit.
This gorgeous spa is the definition of opulence – without the attitude.
