Sarahs story - solving fine lines

The above results were achieved over 5 skin rituals and following expert advised skincare and supplements at home

As a fellow skin therapist (in a previous life) I can wholeheartedly recommend Chelsea. I have witnessed her growth from a highly knowledgeable skin expert with years of experience, to further develop her craft as a holistic skin, mind, body, hormone, gut, trauma, you name it, healing guru. After a series of treatments with Chelsea while following her personalised recommendations at home my skin is absolutely glowing, but I’m also feeling physically & mentally restored, with a deep motivation to continue my self love & healing journey even after I leave her space.

Mas' story - solving texture and scaring

The above results were achieved over 5 skin rituals and following expert advised skincare and supplements at home

Amazing amazing amazing! Went to Chelsea to get a facial done and its was the best & most relaxing experience ever. The techniques plus how good my skin felt after the rejuvenate facial session was legit to say the least. Would highly recommend treating yourself to one or get a session as a gift.
PS. Chelsea is an epic vibe master on the tunes :D

Aimee's story - solving congestion

The above results were achieved over 5 skin rituals and following expert advised skincare and supplements at home

I can’t rave about Chelsea enough. Her knowledge about holistic skincare is beyond compare and the results speak for themselves. Before Chelsea my skin would cycle through inevitable break outs which has always required me to go back to doxycycline. The few treatments I had with her has had far more of an impact on my skin than any other treatments I have perused (including years of consistent facials at other facilities). My skin now knows how to look after itself which gives me a more consistent healthy complexion. I am super grateful for her work, thanks again Chelsea!

    I have written this review multiple times because there’s so much I want to say about about Chelsea.

    Simply, go see Chelsea for your skin, you will not regret it and you’re also supporting a local small business that is worth us having around, forever.

    I booked my mum in for a facial as well as going myself and I will keep suggesting her to everyone in my network.

    This is your sign to just make that booking!

  • Rebekah

    Skin by Chelsea…what an incredible experience!

    I have super dry and sensitive skin, something that makes me really self-conscious.

    Chelsea was so kind and non-judgemental and my skin was the best it’s ever been after visiting her clinic.

    Her Touch Facial really appealed to my “physical touch” love language and combined with her high quality chat, I came away feeling relaxed and replenished - both physically and emotionally.

    Absolutely, 100% will be back. Thanks Chels!

  • Caitlin

    Chelsea’s studio is such a relaxing and tranquil spot. I have had 2 facials with her so far and she has managed to get my acne under control and give me back my skin confidence.

    Before visiting Chelsea I had been going to the Caci clinic regularly with limited results.

    I’m so impressed by what Chelsea has helped me achieve so far and am now a loyal customer and recommend her highly.

    Whether you’re after a targeted facial to treat a skin concern or just an opportunity to relax and feel pampered, Chelsea is your girl!

  • Tash

    Going to Chelsea was without a doubt life changing for my skin.

    Not only was it relaxing she told me all about the science behind what my skin needed and why it was in the condition it was.

    I never once felt upsold if anything I think she’s under selling her immense talent for making you feel rejuvenated but also super hopeful for your skin hopes and dreams.

    I will continue to follow her direction because she knows just what she’s talking about.

    Highly recommend! Love her!

  • India

    I had the most wonderful facial with Chelsea.

    She is warm and professional, with such a deep understanding of the skin and how individual each client and their needs are.

    I loved all the products, the tech and every brush stroke and application on my face.

    My skin felt incredible following and I cannot wait to come back and see my skin progress.

  • Maree

    I have had the pleasure of a wonderful Facial with Chelsea.

    It felt very luxurious while providing a deep cleanse and treatment to my skin.

    Her knowledge of skin and product ingredients is extensive.

    I would thoroughly recommend skin by chelsea and I have purchased gift vouchers for my friends to share this experience.

  • Suzanne

    Walking into the slightly austere room, one is greeted by the warm smile of Chelsea, the therapist, who creates the ambience.

    Knowledge of botanicals and holistic treatment, one is charmed by the passion of this lovely woman.

    As a 76 year old, I am concerned with products containing chemicals. Delighted to say I use three oil based botanicals, a gentle wash and exfoliator.

    I have a facial 4 weekly, which is a treat for the skin and my wellbeing.

    I have and will continue recommending Chelsea, who is all about skin.

  • Wendy

    One of the best facials ever, and excellent results clearing / extracting some years-old blockages (that other facialists didn't or couldn't resolve).

    Chelsea is clearly a skilled practitioner and super knowledgeable.

    The treatment room, in a lovely restored villa, is attractive and tidy, too.

    Referred friends and others almost immediately, as Chelsea's talent deserves a robust client base (even at the risk of making it harder to get an appointment).

    Thanks for a great experience, Chelsea!

    Chelsea is a skin queen! She uses the best, 100% natural skincare and ensures you’ll get radiant, glowing skin.

    Her facial was high touch, lots of massage incorporated and even some LED therapy.

    I left feeling like I had a new face and my skin has never been better. Highly recommend

  • Nancy

    Had my first Yumi lash lift at Chelsea's spa.

    She was kind and knowledgeable, answering my questions in advance as well as during the procedure.

    Really happy with the results. Will return next for a facial in addition to my next last lift.

  • Lysa

    Absolutely heavenly!

    Such a powerful experience that went way beyond a facial.

    Chelsea's knowledge of skin was awe inspiring.

    I received insights that have changed how I relate to my skin and I even fell asleep during my treatment - I immediately brought my girlfriend a gift voucher - Highly recommended!

  • Laura

    I’ve had quiet a few Yumi lash lifts around Auckland and Chelsea’s was by far the best!

    My lashes looked incredibly curled and lasted the longest! Highly recommend!

  • Bhavishna

    Best facial I have EVERRRR had! Chelsea has such an amazing touch and her knowledge is impeccable.

    She made me feel relaxed knowing I was in the best hands. My skin felt so soft and hydrated. I can’t wait to go back!

  • Maddison

    Chelsea has such a wealth of knowledge about skin and health.

    It was one of my first facials, and I can say I felt 10 years younger after it.

    Thanks Chelsea for creating such an inviting space and for being such a genuine person with your clients best interests at heart

  • Charlotte

    A beautiful and cozy space, with the best vibe.

    Chelsea is seriously good at her job I call her the face psychic as she’s incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to reading your skin, where you’re holding tension and how to customise the facial to suit your skin.

    No facial is ever the same each is a bespoke experience that leaves you feeling satisfied, love, relaxed and refreshed.

    Her hands are magic and the best facial massage I’ve ever received!

    I look forward to my monthly appointments as a self care ritual!

    Thank you for taking all the care you do Chelsea!! Xxx

  • Anthony

    I had the pleasure of seeing Chelsea for my first facial, This was an eye opening experience as she shared her wealth of knowledge and expertise to ensure even as a new comer that i was well informed.

    As a person who has not really considered putting my skin at the forefront of self care, Chelsea has helped me understand the importance and has created a routine to help me along my skincare journey.

    It was one of the most relaxing experiences i have ever had, I am quite excited for my follow up sessions to see the progress that is being made.

    If you're looking to give it a go for your first time or are considering a new place.

    I highly recommend Chelsea

    I was gifted the most beautiful experience at Skin By Chelsea, where my heart was nurtured and my skin was deeply nourished Chelsea shared with me her vibrant knowledge of holistic skincare, and offered me suggestions for how to care for my skin health from the inside out.

    I was in a glowing, dewy daze after my facial, feeling absolutely restored and replenished.

    My is heart full of gratitude and warmth, thank you for a blissful experience Chelsea

  • Shane

    I have been receiving facials from chelsea for months and my skins never been better.

    I was impressed with her extensive knowledge of ingredients and she has always tailored my treatments to what my skin needs on the day.

    I have a job that isn't easy on my skin yet my skins never been more hydrated and clear.

    I would recommend any tradies like me to start getting chelsea to treat your skin.

  • Chris

    Amazing facial, Pure bliss. Great location, and epic vibes!
    I had the two hour experience.

    Chelsea has an amazing location, just down from three lamps set up to take you on an intergalactic journey while she caresses your face perfectly.

    Connects with you to understand your facial routine and provides great advice of her professional opinion. Highly recommend and thoroughly enjoyable.

  • Sophie

    I had my first facial with Chelsea and it was a level of luxury I didn't know could exist. I wasn't quite sure what would suit my skin but she took me through a consultation and we picked out a treatment together that suited my face and budget.

    She reads the room and can tell when you want to talk, or when you start to relax and need some quiet.

    Absolutely loved this treatment and would recommend to anyone.
