Everyone deserves to indulge a little sometimes, whether it’s a quick massage after work or a lunchtime manicure. Let’s take a look at the best spots in Brisbane for a good, yet speedy pampering.
Nothing could be better for your skin than a chemical-free facial – and that’s precisely what you can get at Mint Skin & Beauty. We’re talking about the Organic Petit Spa Facial, which combines organic ingredients to deliver a quick pick-me-up. It only takes 45 minutes, so there’s no excuse not to slot one into a busy day. It’s really great if your skin has balance issues too.
“This Salon does great facials and is really local to me. Staff there have a great attitude and I never feel pressured or unwelcome.” – Carol81
Treat your hands to a stimulating massage and keep your nails in tip top condition with an express manicure at Skin Spirit Day Spa. Your nails will be filed and buffed and your cuticles pushed, all before enjoying a relaxation hand massage. To finish off, you can pick whatever colour polish you like. All you need is 30 minutes for wonderful feeling hands and extremely pretty nails.
“Totally relaxing and beautiful day spa. I had a girls day at the spa and enjoyed a Hot Stone Massage and Facial with my friend for her birthday. It was amazing to have such a great experience and we both left feeling completely relaxed and indulged. Highly recommed the dual treatment room.” – Siggi
Rid yourself of those aches and pains and prepare to feel totally relaxed with a Swedish massage at this salon in Paddington. It involves long and soft kneading strokes, as well as relaxation techniques to melt away the stresses of a busy day. Depending on how much time out you need, you can choose a 30, 45 or 60-minute massage – though we promise even half an hour will make you feel like you’re in himmel (that’s heaven in Swedish, by the way).
“A wonderful beauty salon with fantastic staff. I had a full body massage and left feeling great. Thanks!” – JemT
It you’ve never had your lashes tinted before, do yourself a favour and head over to Haven Beauty Bar. This treatment helps open up the eyes and create a dramatic look in the space of 15 short minutes. Your lashes will be dark and thick, and – best of all – you won’t have to deal with the mascara wand for weeks!
“I had a Dermalogica facial and 60min pedicure last Friday and I still feel great! Thanks Rebecca for looking after me, your advice on skin products for me was spot on and my skin is looking fabulous – I’m looking forward to becoming a regular at HA!!” – Alisonqld
Want an instant tan that lasts for around 10 days? Well you can have just that with a little help from the friendly beauticians at Lush Tan & Beauty. Their Rapid Spray Tan is a full body spray tan and a quick solution for achieving sun-kissed skin. They even supply you with g-strings, hairnets, baby wipes, hair clips and moisturisers at no extra cost. Just keep in mind that the tan needs to be washed off in one and a half hours.
“LUSH Tans are most definitely the best in the business! Following years in search of the perfect tan (and tanner!), upon discovering Lush I have never looked back! The girls at Lush are just so friendly, always willing to share their tanning secrets and suggest a new shade or solution. I must say, after all these years, I have never been disappointed by the service provided or the tan result. Lush Albion or New Farm is a MUST for the perfect tan result (oh, and their facials, massages and manicures are to die for as well!!)” – afm89
