YOUR SAFETY FIRST
Not all products and treatments are safe for everyone. You are in very safe hands.
I am a longstanding member of the NZ Association of New Zealand Beauty Professionals Inc.
I am committed to ongoing training and on keeping abreast of developments internationally in my field.
It's really important to understand what's ok for your skin, and what's not, so I insist on having safety checks in place. That means if you're buying a medical-grade product, you can check in with me to ensure its ingredients are safe for you.
It means I'm always here as your senior skin therapist for you to talk to if you're not sure, so you can benefit from my qualifications and 20+ years of experience.
It means I insist on an in-salon consultation with all new clients, so I can see you in person and understand your skin's unique history and needs before customising a skincare regime for you.
And it means you can always shop online at ABW, care-free.
I’m very aware of the time and financial restraints affecting people, and can cater to your needs.
