Touch of Health

Some weeks in life really are a drag and when you’re feeling down in the dumps there’s only one remedy for it: a beautifying facial (or glass of Champagne) – last week I decided to both, the former being the healthier option.

I am extremely fussy when it comes to facials and beauty treatments (just like my Champagne), often stopping part way through if I’m not enjoying the experience. Fortunately, I have found one very talented lady who can take my week from painful to blissful in only 90 minutes. Dedicated Auckland based Guinot facialist, Rebecca Wilkinson will design a customized facial according to your skins needs and revive it back to life. Each facial is 90 minutes long (including eye-lash and brow tint) and is only $140. Rebecca’s business grew from her extensive background in beauty therapy and was inspired by her own frustration with not being able to find a good facial she was happy with.

By appointment only, her in-home boutique Guinot spa is a beautiful sanctuary that will take you far far away from life stresses.  Rebecca’s philosophy around beauty therapy and treatments is that everyone needs a ‘touch of health’; that the simple act of touching is healing. She certainly proved that when she put me to sleep with a gentle hand massage whilst my Vitamin C mask was doing its work – I literally woke up 20 minutes later in a haze forgetting where I was – the only hint being the relaxing Balinese music humming in the background. After the Guinot mask she applied an amazing product called Bioeffect EGF Serum. I bought the serum immediately after the facial it was that good. The non-greasy serum soaked straight into my skin and left it feeling and looking better than it has in a very long time. I also picked up a few extra goodies from the extensive range of Guinot products she stocks along with her own personal beauty and health product picks.

A skilled facialist indeed, I guarantee it is worth a trip to see Rebecca. For all you local Aucklander’s she’s conveniently nestled in the suburb of Remuera and her spa is a real treat. To make an appointment you must book well in advance. Email

About the author
New Zealand based Nature Bee was born in 1997 when Jeff and Ben Cook joined forces. The father / son team discovered a special process developed by Canterbury University, still considered to be ground breaking today, that unlocks the nutrients of bee pollen, making it far more digestible than normal bee pollen. This proprietary process was later to be named the ‘potentiation process' and is continually used only by Nature Bee on their New Zealand bee pollen. Nature Bee is now available in almost every country in the world.
