Beauty & Wellbeing Routine: Suzey Luong, Owner of Vanity Box Skin Couture.

First up, briefly tell us a little bit about yourself!

I’m the owner and operator of Vanity Box Skin Couture Perth, a Hollywood Regency inspired, appointment only salon that specialises in bespoke face and body treatment sessions. I’ve always been passionate about all things beauty related so it was no surprise I would become a beauty therapist. I love my job! I get to make women feel like a million dollars after they have a treatment. It’s such a joy, I am really lucky, and it’s a dream come true that I now have my own salon!

Tell us about your daily beauty routine.

Ok where do I start! Being an owner of a beauty salon I have an endless choice of products and always like to mix it up so my skin keeps improving. At the moment I’m loving Priori CoffeeBerry Natureceuticals as it’s the first and only natural skincare brand to deliver “Cosmeceutical” results designed for the eco-concious, earth friendly consumer.

At the moment every Morning and night I cleanse my skin with Priori Revitalizing Cleanser which is a 99.2 % natural formula fortified with CoffeeBerry extract, natures most potent antioxidants to fight free radicals and the causes of skin aging.

After Cleansing Morning and night I apply a small amount of Priori CoffeeBerry Brightening Facial Complex which helps reduce the appearance of an uneven skin tone in a natural way.

I then apply a small amount of Priori CoffeeBerry Radiance Eye Serum around the delicate eye area to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

Almost done! I then apply a small amount of Priori Coffeeberry Day Complex in the day and Coffeeberry Night Complex at night.

Lastly if it’s in the day I apply my 30+ True Solutions cream and Touch of Priori Coffeeberry 25+ minerals to protect my skin from the harsh environment.

All Priori products are available in salon.

What’s the one beauty treatment you can’t live without? And your favorite place to have it done?

My most favorite treatment is the Priori WOW Facial. It’s a Priori facial using the Idebenone products that honestly makes you look as if you’ve had a mini facelift without the surgery! My favorite place to have it done is the W Retreat Seminyak Bali where my Fiancé and I got engaged, it’s the most amazing place ever!

Who do you trust with your hair in Perth, and why?

I’ve been seeing Anita Green the owner of Salon 44 in Claremont for years. I trust her with my hair as she always listens to what I want and always gets my cut, color or blow-dry perfect every time.

Favorite budget / at home beauty treatment?

My favourite at home beauty treatment is Dry Body Brushing with my Elemis cactus bristle brush. Its so stimulating and great for combating dry skin and cellulite!

Your three, absolutely cannot live without, favourite products?

Oooh this ones hard there’s so many!

♥ First one is my NARS orgasm blush
♥ Second is my NARS sheer glow foundation in Barcelona
♥ Third is my NARS Niagara lipstick

As you can see I’m a lover of NARS! It’s amazing makeup!

Do you have any secret tips you use to keep looking / feeling great?

My secret is lots of sleep and water and a monthly facial (at the moment I’m having the Priori Coffeeberry Yoga Facial). Totes Amazing!!!


What beauty treatment/ wellbeing activity would you love to try but haven’t yet? (Due to time, money, scared etc!)

I would love to try a short stay wellness retreat at the ISIKA Spa at the Burswood Entertainment Complex where a personalized itinerary is developed based on your desired health outcomes and incorporates spa treatments, fitness programmes and water therapy.

Describe a typical day of eating for you.

I try and follow the Paleo diet as much as I can as it is based on how our ancestors used to eat and as our Paleothic ancestors had virtually no ailments or diseases I try and eat this way!

My day starts with a glass of water with a drop of apple cider vinegar followed by a green smoothie.

An hour later I have an egg and bacon muffin. It’s basically a muffin with no bad carbohydrates. All you do is line a muffin tray with bacon,break an egg in the middle sprinkle with organic cheese and chives and bake for around 10 minutes.

For lunch I usually make a tuna salad or have organic soup that I make the night before.

Dinner is usually a recipe chosen out of my favorite book ‘The Green Grocer’ by Leanne Kitchen. It’s a great book that teaches you to respect the source. And eating as well as you can by developing your knowledge of the ingredients that form the basis of the meals you set on your table.

One night a week I have cheat night in which I have what ever I feel like for dinner followed by dessert of some sort.

Describe your fitness routine.

My fitness routine consists of two training sessions in the gym with Elizabeth Rose from ‘Life with Elizabeth Rose’. Elizabeth has created for me a weight, strength & resistance training program which consists of a variety of exercises using dumbbells, a swissball and different equipment in the gym to shape my body.

Three days a week I go to Bobbi’s Pole Studio Perth to do two pole classes and a splits and flex class which is a Yoga/Pilates/Dance class rolled into 1!!!

Do you take part in any alternative therapies or take supplements? If so, discuss.

I start each morning with a green smoothie followed by a couple of spirulina and iron tablets.

How do you like to relax? What are your favourite ways to de-stress?

To de-stress I like to book a massage, my favorite is deep tissue as I get a lot of knots from massaging other people.

If you have any questions for Suzey, please leave them below! 🙂

Be well,

xoxo

    can you tell me what your green smoothie recipe is? thanks x

    Hi Summer, my green smoothies varie each day depending on what fruits are in season but my favourite is The Pineapple Mango Green Smoothie. The tropical flavors of the pineapple and mango come together to create a very refreshing smoothie.

    Just cut up some pineapple,mango and a banana pop it in the blender with a little amount of water,two ice cubes and a handful of spinach. Blend into a smoothie and enjoy!

    Apparently you should change the green leafy bit in your smoothie to something new each day so your body gets the maximum benefits of the smoothie xx
