We are long time fans of Silk Spa Taranaki, they have it all, luxe treatments, great skills at the fundamentals, beautiful product ranges, knowledgeable advice, easy parking, and a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. In fact, we would have said it was practically perfect in every way!
However, part of Silk’s success is the drive of salon owner Charlotte Ward to keep offering something fresh, which reflects the continuous learning Charlotte and her team have undertaken about getting truly beautiful, healthy skin.
Charlotte recently undertook a major renovation project to revamp both the physical environment at Silk and a refresh of the Silk brand: their new name Silk Skin Spa reflects and emphasises the priority placed on skin health and wellbeing.
We went along to their relaunch on August 22nd to check out the new Silk Skin Spa.
The first thing we noticed is the fresh clean open feeling of the lobby – it’s a lovely gentle space to collect your thoughts while you wait. We didn’t have to wait long for bubbles and a delicious selection of canapés. It was great to socialise and mingle with a vibrant group, all buzzing to see what came next.
Charlotte spoke briefly about the new spaces, including a whole new treatment room. We were also told about some of the new ranges Silk Skin Spa will be using and treatments they will be offering.
Next it was off to watch one of the new treatments: a Mindfulness facial – not one person there wasn’t dying to switch places with the model. We were all able to try the products used in the facial – as with any of the products used at Silk Skin Spa, the Ginger&ME range is completely free from any nasties without compromising on results.
We were also able to see some amazing results from the top of the range skin scanner – it can be a bit confronting to see the results of sun damage and poor hydration, but you can’t fix what you don’t know about. The real positive of the skin scanner is that you can actually see the changes and improvements from following the Silk Skin Spa recommendations.
Like any good launch party, the evening ended with a fabulous goodie bag – a fresh arrangement from Ivy Lane each was the perfect accompaniment. The bag itself was chock full of samples and discount vouchers – we’ll be heading back for that Mindfulness facial pronto!
