our therapists

Kelly Kingston - Salon Owner and Beauty Therapist

I trained in beauty therapy in the Gold Coast, Australia 16 years ago was lucky enough to live and work in many different places in this ever evolving industry. I later returned to NZ and retrained in business psychology at Massey University. With a young family and love of the bay I was offered the perfect opportunity to invest in Mount Skin and Body - a unique boutique salon that I had been working at for 6 years whilst studying.

As a mother and a business owner I love being involved in an industry that encourages balance in lifestyle. At Mount Skin and Body we take a holistic approach to beauty and skincare. My vision is to educate and inspire our clients to prioritise skin health and wellbeing in their lives.

Giving back

We support and stock two brands committed to giving back.

Decleor commits itself to the asmada association who work on projects in a small town in Madagascar - where a lot of plant resources are sourced for skincare. This includes the installation of 38 fire hydrants and renovation of three large water tanks to provide drinking water, replanting more than 100,000 trees and solar electrification of three schools in the town to enable children to study in better conditions.

Dermalogica - the purchase of Dermalogica product supports the FITE initiative that has funded and continues to fund more than 30,000 loans to women entrepreneurs that span 14 industries and 68 countries. Women have the power to yield huge returns for themselves, their families and communities. If given the chance to achieve financial independence, they can help entire countries generate a significant competitive advantage in the world market.

Mount Skin and Body are proud supporters of numerous local charities including Heart kids, Kidscan, Age Concern Tauranga and Guide Dogs NZ. Please send your donation enquiries to us@mountskinbody.co.nz
