Let’s be honest, Auckland ladies are spoilt for choice with places to be preened and polished. Until now, the guys haven’t been as lucky—introducing Auckland’s first men's only skin clinic: About Man.
Located in the heart of Ponsonby, About Man is an exclusive men’s clinic. Brought to you by the clever team behind About Face, the new clinic will put you (or your husband/boyfriend/significant other) on the fast track to amazing skin.
This isn’t your typical clinic—no siree! Designed with the modern lad in mind, the space radiates cocktail lounge vibes. Think dark colours, moody lighting and—the best bit—refreshing beverages. Yep, your treatment will start with a cheeky beer (or whisky!) so you can relax and unwind.
Focusing on all things skin, About Man has a wide range of treatments and services to choose from: facials, massages, waxing, brow grooming and even a luxurious foot soak. And, as the good-looking brother of About Face, it’s no surprise the facials here are truly epic.
If you’re new to the world of man pampering, the complete works facial is a good place to start. The 75-minute pamper session is the crème de la crème for anti-ageing and includes a three-step treatment of exfoliating, rejuvenating and infusing your skin. You’ll leave looking AND feeling flying AF.
But wait, there’s more. These guys literally have a facial for erryman and skin-type. The skin saver is perfect for guys with sensitive flesh who are prone to irritation from shaving, ingrown hairs (gross and ouch), or fellas simply after a bit of TLC!
A little oilier than average and struggling with blocked pores? They’ve got you. Book yourself in STAT for the cut and polish. This facial is perfect for—you guessed it—oily or blocked skin. This bad boy includes a clinical skin peel or microdermabrasion to soften skin and clear congestion.
If you’re pressed for time, the express stop facial is 35 minutes of total bliss. They’ll cleanse and exfoliate your skin before applying a tailor-made mask. Better yet, it’s finished with a stress-releasing shoulder massage. Alternatively, About Man also offer skin courses to help common concerns such as redness, acne scarring, sun damage and pigmentation. Yep, you can stop these things in their tracks.
The pampering doesn’t stop at your face. About Man has got your back—literally—with their grooming options. Banish back and shoulder hair with their waxing service, or have your brows groomed to perfection.
While you’re there, you might as well put the man in manicure, or treat your feet to a Pure Fiji coconut milk foot soak during your pedicure. For the ultimate indulgence, sign up for a Swedish or deep-tissue massage—you know you want to!
If you’re looking to treat the man in your life, why not grab an About Man voucher? You can choose from either a specific treatment or select a dollar amount to let them decide. It’s a
thoughtful clever way to introduce the men in your life to great skin—they’ll thank ya later!
One thing’s for certain: we’re welcoming About Man to the city with open arms. Auckland lads just got hella fly.
