Massage at Hommage at Crown Spa
One of our head office Urban Listers booked her guy into Hommage at Crown Spa for the Jet Lag Recovery & Recharge massage and seriously, he hasn't stopped raving since. The blissful 75-minute session isn't just for men who've been flying, it's for anyone who's looking for a stimulating treatment to help to increase circulation. Guys, once the massage is over (and you've woken up from the slumber you've fallen into), take a dip in the amazing pool before picking your car up from the complimentary valet service. Oh yeah, it's all part of the luxe service at Hommage!
Facial at Mister Fox
Rounding out our list of top spots for men's grooming in Melbourne is Mister Fox, the men's division of CBD beauty hub, Miss Fox. The team here are total skin experts, and their Luxury Custom Spa Facial for men is hands down one of the best facials going around. Why? Because Mister Fox understands the difference between men's and women's skin, and has designed the treatment specifically to suit. Using all-natural products, the facial begins with hot towels and exfoliation followed by a Healing Balm facial massage, skin-specific face mask and a light moisturiser. Yup, say buh-bye to dull, dry skin and hellooo to a bright, hydrated complexion.
