Spring Beginnings

Are you looking forward to the “beauty” of Spring as much as me? 

This year has certainly tested many of us. The challenges and worries we have all had to face, have been real, but can I say, it has also shown us the power to stop and take mindful moments to evaluate our lives and self, with healthy intentions and heartfelt gratitude. 

Reminisce of a time when technology came in the form of a double tape deck to create the ultimate love song mixed tape and a good night in was a trip to the video store before snuggling up on the couch with my boyfriend.  

2020 in many ways has made me stop and reflect on life when it was just that little less complicated.  I am grateful and appreciate every day the comfort of my home and the surrounding environment. The ability to work from home and in some cases taking my work on the road, and when I say “road” I mean taking pen to paper, feeling the sand between my toes and taking in the intoxicating beauty of the Sunshine Coast and jotting down my thoughts of 2020 and beyond for Stephanies.   

This year could not have been achieved without the strength of those close to me. Together, with their support, they have guided me on this endearing journey to deliver on my business goals.

To my hubby Des, my fluffy fur family, friends and to all at Stephanies…. thank you.  

Our Spring beginnings blog is to simply say thank you for the incredible support you have shown us this year and thank you for being part of our Stephanies Spa family!  

This Spring, we intend to delight and inspire you with some exciting Bohemian Beauty spa rituals, spa events and to introduce you to some new delicious inner wellness products. 

A lovely industry friend of mine Sarah, talented therapist and spa owner of Ballarat’s Sanctuary Day Spa, sent me a private message about a product called IMBIBE, when I was doing research into gut health products

She expressed to me the fabulousness and benefits of these products; she has personally seen incredible results and the same with her own valued clients. So, I thought I would try IMBIBE and review them myself. Throughout the last six months, I have been seriously impressed… I have seen and felt firsthand the benefits of these Byron Bay inner beauty products. My skin, hair, nails and digestive system have improved out of sight!  

As we all know, beauty isn’t just about how you look on the outside, it starts from within. Looking after your inner health, specifically with a healthy lifestyle, good gut health, great nutrition and a balanced digestive system.  

Equally as important, is to compliment your inner health with a quality skincare routine at home and regular skin and spa therapies prescribed for you by our clever Stephanies Skin Experts.  

I can wholeheartedly recommend IMBIBE to our Stephanies family, these three potent, high-performance inner beauty rituals are 100% clean, non-toxic and organic and are all backed by science. Beaty Renewal, Miracle Collagen and Protect will make you feel great and you will see a fresh skin glow, shiny hair, strengthened nails and enhanced energy while providing support to your own immune system.  

To discover more, please go to IMBIBE on our website or in-spa at all Stephanies® locations.

PAYOT Techni Liss Range!


Blog by Stacey – Stephanies Group Trainer & Spa Retreat Manager   


PROTECT your skin from BLUE LIGHT free radicals with PAYOT Techni Liss Range! 💙

Did you know blue light is emitted from our smartphones, TVs, light bulbs and computer screens?  

The time we spend on these gadgets with proximity, has been shown in studies to induce oxidative stress in the skin as blue light affects the level of melatonin (our sleep hormone) and this can lead to premature ageing and in some cases, pigmentation. 

Who is this range for?
Everyone can benefit from this range and it is for ALL skin types. It is ideally for people who regularly expose themselves to blue light technology, and with our current social distancing and isolation circumstances, this will be beneficial for people who are exposed to such gadgets, working from home on their computers or in medical and health centres, as blue light is present in computer-related devices and some light bulbs. 


PAYOT Blue Techni Liss range features a range of products with key actives to help fight against the effects of desynchronised skin biorhythms, which is caused when our skin has had too much screentime and not enough natural daylight and sleep. Within the formulation contains a blue light shield active which fights the effects of environment aggression during the day and at night. 

Jodie Whiley, PAYOT National Education and Sales Training Manager has stated that:

‘Payot Blue Techni List Range is your complete range to prolong the life of injectables – Blue Techni Liss Jour and Blue Techni Liss Regard reduce muscular contractions due to the Hibiscus Oligo-peptide, a powerful firming agent, and Blue Techni Liss Concentre uses 3 levels of Hyaluronic Acid to fill the skin with long lasting hydration and to prolong the life of filler.’ 

Key Actives

This range includes the following key actives:

  • Hibiscus Peptide – Helps to relax contracted muscles whilst softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and is a powerful firming agent and rich in antioxidants. Great for maintaining cosmetic injectable results and youthfulness.
  • Horehound Extract (Blue Light Mitigation) – Proven to absorb free radicals released by blue light, which is responsible of the disruption of biorhythms.
    It provides a 38% reduction in DNA damage and strengthens the skin’s barrier function whilst repairing the cell’s metabolism.
  • Chase Tree Extract – Increases cellular oxygenation, reconstructs the barrier of the skin and protects physical/chemical external aggressions.
  • Lindera Aggregata (in Techni Jour Day Cream) – Restores the gene clock in skin cells and like light therapy, stimulates metabolic functions, improves hydration and corrects the biorhythms of the skin. 
  • Nocturnal Micro Algae (in Techni Nuit Night Cream) – Activates in the dark to help the skin cells rest and repair and provides skin cells with energy. It also stimulates calcium release and stimulates growth factors. 


I have used Blue Techni Liss Jour and Blue Techni Liss Concentrate recently on my skin and can vouch that the textures feel beautiful and nourishing without feeling heavy at all. Knowing its effectiveness and what it does for the skin, motivates me to include this as part of my skincare regime whilst working from home!
It also smells great with a cocktail of natural fragrance notes to relax the mind and skin, including: Blackcurrant, Peach, Apple, Pear, Mandarin, Galbanium, Jasmin, Rose, Magnolia, Iris, Vanilla and Amber.
