Welcome to Lissom.
Launched in the middle of a lavender farm in Auckland, Lissom’s mission and passion is to meet the diverse beauty needs of New Zealanders as well as people all around the world by developing decadent, effective beauty products and providing professional, holistic spa and wellness offerings that are serious about skin. Our motto for all that we do is: It's all about you.
Behind Lissom is Michelle and Lydia, who met whilst working in the skincare and wellness industry. We created Lissom for ourselves, and we wish to share our brand with those who, like us, love beauty, enjoy taking care of their appearance and health, and are in need of luxurious yet affordable beauty that one can turn to time and time again.
Launching in January 2019, we started our skincare range in on the basis that we stay committed to these promises: (1) made using only the best, most effective ingredients, (2) formulated in accordance with safety guidelines according to the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Database, and (3) designed for the real lives we live: full of variety, always on the go, and in need of luxurious yet affordable skincare that we can turn to time and time again. We formulated our range whilst Lydia was pregnant with her first child and Michelle was undergoing treatment for Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. We are big on clean beauty as we know all too well the long term effects that harmful ingredients expose us to, and we wish to share our brand with those who, like us, enjoy looking after their skin and refuse to risk their health for beauty.
What sets Lissom apart is our dedication to sourcing the best ingredients. Damask roses, harvested in the early morning before the sun fully rises over the trees in the hinterland of the North Island, are a rare find in New Zealand, and the freshly-picked petals are distilled and bottled up in our Rose Moisture Boost Sleeping Mask - the first in our series of skincare products.
Opening in December 2019 and broadening Lissom's reach to encompass the holistic beauty and wellness space is Lissom Spa & Beauty: A "one-stop shop for all things beauty", with six treatment rooms and a hair salon on Auckland's North Shore offering facials, massages, nail and hair services, spa packages, and high performance face and body treatments. We are committed to helping you look and feel confident in your skin, and our experienced therapists, state of the art technologies, and tailored body, facial and beauty treatments using botanical and active products are the hallmarks of our commitment to providing you with a service that is unique in the industry.
As authorised stockists of the professional ranges we stock in-spa, we now retail products online as well and invite you to bring the spa experience home with you.
The best piece of advice we have been given, is to create a life where you never have to 'work’ because you enjoy what you do so much. Running Lissom has been such a joy to us that we feel like we never have to work a day in our lives, and we are so thankful to you for sharing our passion for beauty and for giving us the opportunity to do what we love everyday.
