Escape the end of year madness and refresh at Waterlily boutique


Among the hustle and bustle of James Street lies the ultimate relaxation escape; the Waterlily flagship boutique.

Waterlily is a leading spa wellness and artisan skin and body care brand that develops natural products and aromatic treatment rituals. The Waterlily range contains active botanical ingredients and the hands-on spa treatments are both result-driven and focused on total relaxation.

As the end of 2015 approaches and our stress levels are high, it is essential to take time out and indulge in me-time... which is exactly what I recently did! I was invited to experience Waterlily's Spring Summer Apple Collagen Spa Facial at the New Farm boutique.


Entering the concept store is like being transported to a beauty oasis, where I was treated to a warm aromatherapy compress infused with lime, geranium and grapefruit and a herbal tea.

The treatment took place in Waterlily’s beautiful VIP Spa Suite; a sanctuary where being 'in the moment' and completely relaxed is encouraged, and easily achieved with comfort, aromatic fragrances and calming music.

The ritual I experienced is a professional facial treatment tailored for all skin types that actively hydrates, firms, tones and brightens while purifying and refining the skin.


Layered with apple concentrate rich in malic acid - a natural enzyme used to refine and exfoliate skin - silk peptides to rejuvenate, ginseng extract used to soothe redness and inflammation and marine collagen to lock in moisture, boost hydration, even skin tone and firm skin texture; the professional spa facial is an hour of pure regeneration and relaxation.

The customised treatments are created to target seasonal-specific skin requirements and the Apple Collagen Facial left my skin feeling plump, hydrated and radiant. The aromatic fragrance of each product and the oasis of the treatment room truly creates an indulgent experience, while the active botanical ingredients deliver visible results.


The Apple Collagen Spa Facial is available at Waterlily’s flagship boutique as well as through select stockists nationwide. Visit Waterlily Skin Body Spa for more information.
