Beauty destination: Studio by East Day Spa

When the Rugby World Cup store left the rear of the lobby at Auckland’s wonderful SKYCITY Grand hotel, there was a seriously cool space left behind that just begged for a new resident. East Day Spa founder Ina Bajaj spotted its potential and after a little research and some beautiful tweaks the Studio by East Day Spa was born.
Studio by East Day Spa is a technically a pop-up salon, but one which I definitely hope will stick around. An ultra luxe hybrid of a boutique, a beauty salon and a spa, I spotted it when I was coming in for a facial at East Day Spa below and didn’t want to leave. It offers exclusive products and a range of treatments, and is open from 10am to 6pm but can accommodate appointments as needed. It’s the perfect answer for time-poor beauty fiends working in the CBD as well as hotel and spa guests, and is like a treasure trove of gift ideas for yourself or your nearest and dearest.
The goodies within include products by bareMinerals, Snowberry and Ecoya, the incredible beautyblender, butter LONDON nail polishes, Harney + Sons teas, Nature Girl scrubs and body products and Sara Happ lip treats. In short: one hell of a lot of fabulous stuff!
The Studio was launched as a temporary pop-up but I for one think that it needs to stay! Get in there and have a look around, it’s a seriously worthy Auckland beauty destination.
