Christmas Countdown: Summer Savers at Lucy & the Powder Room


It goes without saying that beauty haven Lucy & The Powder Room always do a wonderful line in seasonal packages and promotions, and they are also constantly on the lookout for clever new product lines and making conscious choices for the good of their clients and the planet.
They also do a damn fine pamper when you need it most, and the lead up to Christmas is the perfect time to get in there and submit to their therapists’ healing hands. It’s lucky then that they have just launched two new 75 minute “Summer Savers” in the form of a Face Saver and a Body Saver.
I popped in last week to the Takapuna Powder Room to experience the former with the wonderful Hannah E., a package that kicks off with a super powered skin treatment using Osmosis products. Focusing specifically on pigmentation, the plan is to safeguard against aging and give your skin a much deserved boost using key ingredients such as Vitamin C and the powerful ceutical booster Vital Skin Nutrition, a customised combination that left my skin absolutely glowing. Next, Hannah applied the finishing touches – a blue-black lash tint “to enhance the sparkle in your eyes”, and an application of Coola Mineral Matte finish SPF, an incredible product that I have raved about many times in the past. She also applied a little of the new Osmosis Colour mineral make up, which I have to confess that I didn’t even know existed! It seems like a clever little collection that does wonders for the skin so I hope to be able to have a play with it one days soon.
I have the sort of hair that doesn’t work well with a facial (the one time when bangs are a curse), but Hannah whipped me upstairs to the Stephen Marr salon see the always-affable and preternaturally stylish Trish, who transformed my greasy locks into a stellar updo in less than ten minutes flat! Face AND hair officially saved!
The other Summer Saver focuses on the neck down, specifically “tan and toes”. You start with their new Medi Pedi then experience their brand new one hour organic spray tan, which sounds seriously amazing. Lucy’s talented team of experts will select the most natural of tones for your skin type and carefully apply – it takes just 15 minutes to spray and dry, and you can shower within the hour (or two if you want a deeper tan).
The Summer Face Saver and Body Saver both come with a great price tag of $100 (value $160), or if you’re just in the market for a tan mention Ms Helene when you book and get it for $50 instead of $65!
To book your Summer Face or Body Saver Package or a tan, call Takapuna 09 488 0585 or Newmarket 09 524 6702. You definitely won't regret it!
