If you need an instant pick-me-up or want to get groomed at the last minute, then an express facial or manicure wouldn’t go amiss. We’ve rounded up the best beauty treatments in Sydney – perfect for those of you on the go.
There’s nothing like a facial to make you look and feel fabulous. Great news! The Flash Facial at Glow Girl can give you an instant lift. It includes an exfoliating cleanse, as well as a mask and moisturiser in a sweet 30 minutes. That means you can pop over to Glow Girl in your lunch break or on your way home from work.
“Glow Girl is a fabulous salon. I have recommended it to all of my friends. The owner and the girls who work there are lovely and the best at what they do. I’ve had monthly facials for years now as well as waxing, tinting and massages – all of which I have been very pleased with. The prices are great and they are very generous with time. 5 stars for sure.” – mac91
Do your eyes the world of good and say goodbye to bags with an Eye Rejuvenation Wrap. It conditions and moisturises the delicate skin around the eyes while reducing puffiness and dark circles. You’d think that would take ages – but actually the whole treatment is done and dusted in 30 minutes. So you can pop in after a big night out, and be back to your best self in time for brunch. #winning
“Hidden gem in Surry Hills. The salon was clean, welcoming and friendly. Had a 1 hour stone massage and it was so relaxing. Joyce the owner was lovely to chat to as well. Will definately be back. Loved it.” – WinkBallons
It’s not always easy to treat your skin to the care it deserves. After all, who has the time to spend hours deciphering all those creams and gels and elixirs and whatever else is sitting in your bathroom cabinet but you have no idea how to use? However, it doesn’t have to be so hard. Simply head down to Diva Beauty and get an Express Facial. This treatment comes with a deep cleanse, gentle exfoliation, mask and hydrator, all suited to your skin type. You can look polished in 30 minutes and skip out of the parlour with your head held high.
“This little hidden gem is probably one of the best beauticians I’ve been to in Sydney. I’ve been getting my brazilian here for the past few years and they have never let me down. Friendly, super quick and efficient, professional and they are cheaper than all the places I’ve been to that aren’t even that good. Big love to these guys.” – sushirawl
In the heart of Sydney’s CBD, you can find Beauty on Park Street, which provides eyelash and eyebrow tinting in just 15 minutes. Let that sink in. You could pop by on your lunch break and still have time to shop and grab a bite to eat. If you happen to have more time, you could try the Lash + Brow Tint & Brow Wax, which can be done in 45 minutes.
“Best professional spray tan I have had. My spray tan was perfectly even including my mothers and aunties. Beautiful colour aswell using St Tropez! Will definitely be back when I am in Sydney next!” – Jade Gaski
There’s nothing like a massage to restore calm and alleviate stress, and the 30-minute massage at The Body Spot brings calm and balance to both body and mind. We know it’s hard to believe that it can be done in just half an hour, but trust us when we say it really can. Go on – treat yo’self.
“The Icebergs might sound like a swanky place to opt for a massage but The Body Spot, located above the pools, has been operating for years, long before the snazzy renovations to the bar and restaurant. Book in for a remedial hours rub and hear the surf crash against the rocks while your knots are kneaded. Not a venue for those who like all-out pampering with heating towel rails and five-star showers, but perfect for someone who prefers a down-to-earth atmosphere and savours the sound of the sea over a syrupy soundtrack.” – CushlaC
