Be your own kind of beautiful – be Unique.

Welcome to the August issue of our ‘Member of the Month’ blog, where we get to shine a spotlight on our amazing business members and show everyone what they have to offer.

This month, we take a glimpse behind-the-scenes of Unique Skin Boutique, with help from successful business owner Cherie May to chat about her experiences with running a business here in Kalgoorlie-Boulder. 

Cherie started her business in 2016 with a burning passion; both for skincare and wanting to bring new, more specialised services to the Goldfields. With over twelve years of experience in the beauty industry and having worked in prestigious salons and clinics across Australia before, Cherie began Unique Skin Boutique to welcome the art of pampering to our city.

The business has always been confident in maintaining the health, strength and integrity of each client’s skincare needs, and making the necessary changes to combat any rising concerns. Unique Skin Boutique offers an extensive range of services for skin treatment including: tanning, facial waxing, tinting, IPL/SHR hair removal. Currently, they have Naturaliste Skin Clinic visiting periodically, who offer cosmetic injections.

Cherie describes the business as a ‘skin revision clinic’, a place for long-lasting results and rejuvenation. She works alongside her two staff members, staying confident that education and a true passion are what help to create a successful business. The team works hard to create personalised skin routines and cater to each individual client to the best of their ability. “It can be a challenging clientele, but at the same time, just as rewarding,” she says. 

We all know that running a local business can have its pros and cons. “Passion, compassion, being true to our goals and being original has helped set our business apart from competitors.”
When it comes to getting the word out, Cherie’s best results have come through social media and local word of mouth.

We were intrigued to know Cherie’s biggest achievement, which is: “Bringing a change to the beauty industry, [specifically] around skin care and cheaper laser hair removal pricing.” Her greatest challenge in business is staff retention, and ensuring their values and morals match that of the company.

Cherie and her team are constantly giving back to the local community, with humble donations of gift vouchers and product giveaways, Unique Skin Boutique has had the chance to show their community spirit by helping out with sporting, racing and fishing club events around our city.

When asked where Cherie sees Unique Skin Boutique in the next five years, the answer was quite simple: “Doing the exact same thing, maybe with a few newer technologies to complement our existing treatments.” 

The most exciting part of Unique Skin Boutique for Cherie? “The RESULTS!”

It must be such a rewarding experience to treat a client and know what you’re doing will ultimately benefit that person and make them feel so much more confident within their own skin. We commend Cherie and her team for their amazing efforts in keeping our locals looking glamorous and glowy!
