From my arrival to my departure, the quality of the hospitality and service was extremely impressive. Hang (my specialist) was highly attentive, friendly , provided expert detail and answered all of my questions whilst skilfully performing each component of the session. I would highly recommend Hang and the team at Face Of Man to anyone looking to relax, improve their complexion and overall appearance.

The Ultra-Ceuticles facial booked with Kate was thorough and concise, she did an amazing job. After my facial treatment, I left the joint with my skin lookin like I was ready for a photo shoot, couldn't believe how much my pores shrunk and tightened and skin completely smooth and clear from congestion.. My skin concerns were addressed effortlessly during my treatment and definitely coming back in the new year to keep up the momentum. It's a huge difference and best facial I've had since my last visit 2years here ago.

Visited Face of Man for my Introductory Offer, was treated by Stella.

I bought my friend a gift voucher from Face Of Man.
I’m so pleased I did.
He loved it.
Not only did he love the roll out the red carpet royal treatment feel....but he loved the knowledge that his therapist was able to pass onto him.
He is now more confident to keep up with his home care.
Highly recommend 🏆

I don't normally post reviews good or bad but I felt compelled this time. After an incredibly stressful (work related) weekend and Monday morning the last thing I felt like doing was keeping my facial appointment at Face of Man. I am so grateful I did though... within 5 minutes of arriving I was lying in the dimly lit room and even though my mind was still racing I could start to feel a shift. Then Kate walked in and started erasing the previous 56 hours completely.The facial itself was amazing but the head and hand massage whilst under the LED lamp was something else (and don't get me started on the Coconut and Vanilla scented lotion.... :-)Added to this the calming but groovy music being piped into the room for that added cushion. I could have stayed there for hours.The issues at work are still there but I am so much more equipped and relaxed to deal with them. Absolutely do this for yourself.

I just returned home after the introductory skin treatment package from Face of Man and was impressed by the services offered. Amy and Stella were very accommodating and professional with no sense of being up-sold anything. I had a welcome scotch on arrival which put me in the perfect mood for my treatment. I found the prices reasonable and I look forward to making it a quarterly event.

After years of trying to find a decent place for skin needling and facials that focuses on men i knew this was the place. From the minute i walked in the girls were so helpful and professional. The fitout is amazing too makes you feel like a real king. They gave me the right advice for what I wanted. Safe to say after 2 sessions im already seeing great results. Prices are fair and worth every cent. Highly recommend.

I went in for a treatment and found Rhiannon to be very knowledgable and professional. It was not just about the treatment it was also the plan the team set in place for me to ensure my skin is looking fresh. After a month of visiting and buying some products my skin is looking great, I did not find the products that expensive as they are quality not like the cheaper stuff you buy at the supermarket. My partner was even asking to use some of the products they are that good!! I will be back soon to visit the team for a follow up treatment.

Face of Man does NOT disappoint! If you're time poor, work in the city but still want to take care of yourself, this is the right place for you. My first skin treatment was a microdermabrasion and I definitely felt refreshed in the following days. A few weeks later, I booked myself in for another facial - a hydrafacial.Would recommend FoM!Maybe I'll take them up on their waxing services next.

I always have an exceptional and professional experience at Face of Man. I am now educated in my skincare routine, after turning 30 recently I'm starting to pay more attention to my skin and health of it. I am using Ultraceuticals products which the girls recommended to me and i haven't looked back. I get comments on my skin "glow" regularly, I always look forward to visiting Face of Man for my "ME" time 🙂 The shop is beautiful and always a 10/10 experience!!

This exceeded all my expectations and was an incredible experience as a first time client!I was a bit nervous before the appointment and wasn't sure if I was doing the right thing for my skin but from the moment you exit the elevator and being greeted at the front desk you immediately feel comfortable and taken care of. I was recommended to have an LED treatment due to the sensitivity of my skin. The treatment was simple and the therapist took care of all my concerns. I also picked up some products on the way out, mainly because I've tried everything to calm down some red patches on my face and I was assured it would work. 3 weeks later I'm writing this and can tell you it's been the best thing I've done for myself. My skin is looking and feeling great! So thank you to my therapist and the staff at Face of Man. And for anyone reading this just give it a go and follow their skin care program especially if you have some skin concerns!

A week later he is still raving about his treatment and the care his therapist took with him. Thank you for making him feel like a “king”.

I bought my Grandfather a gift voucher from Face Of Man. He always likes to be well groomed for my grandma. He has travelled to many countries in his 80 years and has had many 5 star experiences. He said Face Of Man is ‘world class’ and he has not stopped thanking me for making him, in his words, ‘immaculate’. My Pop is a proper gent but firm too he wouldn’t say it was good unless it was the best! I highly recommend Face Of Man for any one who loves their grandfather !

Was a client for a while a long time ago and just kind of forgot about Face Of Man for some reason. Anyway, they came back onto my radar again recently so decided to book another appointment and boy am I glad I did. Had the most amazingly relaxed time, one of the best massages I have ever been treated to and a superb facial. Will be back again soon.I read some other reviews on here about product pushing and can say that not once was any product purchase mentioned during my visit.

Bought a gift voucher for my boyfriend who has always struggled with bad acne. It was something he was always uncomfortable about so I hoped he would get some good results - or at least enjoy being pampered for a few hours.Well he loved it! Since that first visit, his skin is looking incredible - breakouts are few and far between - and he has so much more confidence. He's now a regular, and I cannot recommend this place enough.The products are a little pricey, and there is a decent amount of upselling during these appointments, BUT he has found products that work for the first time in his life. The customer service is great, the skin advice is life-changing and the appointments sound like a lot of fun - I wish I got a beer while waiting for a beautician appointment!

I usually do not write any reviews for any place, as I am a difficult customer to impress. Nikki has been my Therapist from day one and I must say she has been spot on with her work. She is very friendly with her clients, but when it comes to work her professionalism is second to none. She doesn’t hurry into the treatment and makes sure we fully understand why she is doing it or recommending a product. This tells us that she is quite knowledgeable with her work. She makes sure we are totally relaxed and help us to de -stress completely and of course pampers us to the core . My skin looks great and its feels good when you receive compliments from people around you.Thank you for being customer-eccentric and it's the hard work of people like Nikki which win customers for you. I am just buying your customer experience and that's what makes me come back to you each time.Please pass on my thanks to Nikki for a job well done and exceeding my expectations every time I visit. Highly recommend this place if you are serious about your skin!!!
