I easily found the dusk pink and orange colours of Fayshell along the retail fašade of Bronte road in Bondi Junction. I was drawn into the clinic by the futuristic design and the radiant, welcoming staff. It was clear that the owners, Katelin Gregg and Ella James, intend to offer a unique experience here. After being guided past the front counter, I discovered the layers of calming spaces that make up the Fayshell clinic.
For this visit, I tested out the First Time Fayshell package which includes a skin consultation and a customised facial. I met my dermal therapist Maddie who showed me to the treatment room, bathed in shades of coral and peach. Echoes of Janelle Monae's song Pynk played in my mind as I settled into the ultra boujee space to talk skincare. I had specific concerns as a Rosacea sufferer so the consult was valuable for discussing my needs. Maddie shared plenty of advice and gave me assurance that the facial would be customised to my sensitive skin.
While I realised there is so much to learn about skincare with salicylic acid peels and microdermabrasion now part of the norm, I also know that I don't need to be an expert. The therapist at Fayshell had taken the work out of navigating skincare treatment for me. And although my sunny afternoon had turned to a gloomy night as I headed out of Bondi, my refreshed face and newfound skin confidence had brightened up my week.
