Alex Donald owner of Pure Essence
I have worked in the beauty industry for 20years now and I really enjoy my work. My favourite service to give would have to be facials. Due to advanced skin analysis training and 20 years of experience you can be assured that your skin is in good hands. I love working with the sothys products they allow me to give you a quality facial whether it be for relaxation or a treatment plan to work on a specific skin condition. I believe massage is very important for us to de stress and allow yourself the gift of time , I like to individualsie your massage depending on what you want, so please let me know if it’s deep tissue to work on knotted muscles, or pure relaxation that you want – the hot stone massgae is the ultimate in relaxation. Another rewarding service that I like to do is electrolysis there is nothing better when you bet the hair!! it’s great when you see the results if you are suffering with facial hair you’ll understand what I mean book for a free consultation with me so I can determine if you are suitable for electrolysis.
I’ve been working at Pure essence for 8 years now and really enjoy the friendly relaxed feel of the place. I enjoy meeting and catching up with new and regular clients. I guess my two favourite treatments would be facials and our eyebrow shaping and tinting. Its amazing how such a simple treatment can frame the face and make someone feel so much better about themselves, teaming that with our lash perm can give that bit of extra confidence. Feeling a bit flat there’s nothing like a facial to calm the mind and rejuvenate, It makes me feel as if I’ve been able to help wether it’s hydrating the skin or just giving you some time out to relax.
My working career started in the U K as a laboratory technician. I have always enjoyed biology and chemistry, learning how the body works and why. After moving around the world with my husband we settled here in New Zealand where I trained to be a beauty therapist and have worked in the industry for over 8 years. I find it the perfect job for me as I am a real people person. I love using science and technology and my knowledge to make clients feel good about themselves. I have been very fortunate to be employed by Alex in her relaxed and friendly very professional salon. I get to meet new people and use fabulous products and on going training to cater to all our lovely clients needs.
