In 2012, Stela and Ilva opened their Gold Coast salon & spa STĪL after the word for style in Albanian and as a combination of the first two letters of their names. They’ve been creating style for clients ever since.
On my recent visit to STĪL, I had the Classic European Facial, and it repaired my dry flaky skin, leaving it radiant and renewed. Matilda, the esthetician, conducted a process of double cleansing, exfoliation, extractions around the T-zone area of the face, and a mask to calm the skin and close the pores.
She ended with a massage to stimulate the muscle tone and bring oxygen to the blood vessels. It was relaxing and thorough. My skin was glowing the next few days, and it was not irritated during the process.
In addition to skin treatments, they offer manicures, pedicures, hair treatments and waxing. The Classic European Facial runs 60 minutes for $95.
