We Found Awesome: Skin Story Is The Mecca Of Artisan Facials

Nupur posted on 28th March

Ten-Second Takeaway

If work hours have got your beauty regime in a fix, we found you a solution in Skin Story. The only place in the city that does customised, artisan facials to get your skin regime back on track.

What Is It?

If you’ve ever been to Pali Naka, it is highly unlikely that you haven’t noticed a pretty-looking board that reads ‘Skin Story‘. We gave them a visit a few days ago and came back fresher. The skin lounge focuses on specialised, artisan facials that will have you glowing after.

The session started with a chat with founder and  esthetician, Nikeeta Vishak, where we mutually dissed the lack of focus on hygiene at local salons. We then went in for a skin analysis and were advised ‘Illuminating Radiance’ to restore hydration to the skin. Customised to the T,   with the help of cell-energizing algae extracts and grapefruit  extracts, this treatment ensured  our skin regained suppleness , had optimum hydration and was plumped from within.

The Process

Starting with their signature welcome touch called ‘ Eveil a la mer’,  where they deep cleanse your skin with artisan brushes, exfoliate with sea salt and papaya extracts, nourish your skin with a hydrating serum, and  enrich it with macadamia nut oil after. This is followed by an illuminating mask , topped with Marine infusion illuminating booster. It’s completed with a collagen eye gel, a hydrating moisturizer and sunscreen. The experience comes at INR 2,200 and does leave you completely relaxed {it comes with a shoulder and arms massage}.

What's Great About It?

We have to tell you about the cleanliness first. Spick and span, it made us rethink our visit to the local salon. Everything that touches your face is sterilised and you can leave all the worries at home. The therapists, Atim  and Yui are certified and do an excellent job at making you comfortable and your skin, better than ever.

The facials are affordable {they start at INR 1,500} for the results you get. They use a French product that goes easy on the skin and most importantly, they won’t tell you the number of blackheads your nose has and diss you for it.

So, We're Saying...

If the well-being of you skin is important to you, Skin Story is where you should be heading to, instead of your local haunt. It’s backed by proper research and science and honestly, the compliments don’t hurt, sister.
