The results are in. The inaugural Denizen Everyday Heroes saw thousands of votes cast in support of local businesses, with the aim of shining a light on the people and places whose services we rely upon. So without further ado, celebrate the best facialists Auckland city has to offer, as voted by you.

1. MOST VOTED: Ashleigh Scott, The Facialist
Since establishing respected inner-city skincare destination The Facialist in 2014, renowned holistic facialist Ashleigh Scott has carved out a reputation for delivering real results. With extensive experience in the international skincare industry and a focus on wellness and inner healing, Scott’s bespoke treatments are as popular as they are effective.

2. HONOURABLE MENTION: Laura Duggan, About Face Ponsonby
Laura Duggan has touched skin all over the world, from her native Ireland to Australia to her latest lucky clients who seek out her expert hands at About Face’s Ponsonby branch. With almost eight years of experience up her sleeve, you can count on Duggan to leave your skin feeling plump, dewy and hydrated. The ‘Power of Three’ facial is her signature, a potent treatment that includes a skin peel, LED light therapy and an active vitamin infusion via Sonophoresis to create the ultimate pre-event quick fix.

3. HONOURABLE MENTION: Janine Stucki, East Day Spa
With more than 16 years of experience in facial and skin therapies, East Day Spa’s leading luxury facialist Janine Stucki sure knows a thing or two about what your face needs.
