Neighbourhood: Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I went in to buy a new moisturiser and perfume. Melissa helped me choose the perfect moisturiser for my skin type and showed me through all of the amazing products. She took the time to tell me the ingredients and different viscosities and let me try them on to see the texture and feel. I am new to skincare and she was the most helpful saleswomen I have come across in my 23 years. She also took the time to help me choose a new perfume and looked through the perfume notes to find the best match to my preferences. I had THE BEST experience and I will certainly be going back to this wonderful shop. Thank you Melissa

I have visited this beautiful shop in December as my local friend recommended me.

The shop is full of organic cosmetic products, most of them are made in Australia.

Kayla, who is a founder of this shop, she was an amazing person. She is very kind and knowledgeable about all of the products. I have bought quite a few as I can’t find those in Japan.

I highly recommend it you are into high quality beauty cosmetics. They also sell make up products and perfumes as well, and of course they are 100 % organic! I would defiantly visit again. Thank you Kayla!

I was visiting from the US and in search of a clean beauty destination in Melbourne. I was so happy to find One Fine Secret pop up in my Google search results. They are located on the 3rd floor of an office building and have created a beautiful space to showcase the various clean beauty brands they carry. Kayla (owner) is incredibly knowledgeable and takes the time to explain ingredients to you, listens to what your skincare needs are, and allows you to test the various products. They carry both Australian and US brands, but I was primarily interested in the Australian ones and focused on those. Check out their website to see the full list of items they sell. Thanks Kayla!! I'm happily enjoying my products now!

If you're looking for a place that stocks clean local & international skincare and makeup brands, I highly recommend One Fine Secret.

Earlier this year, I was trying to find an Australian stockist of Earthwise Beauty products and found this gem of a store.

Kayla and John are both friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks for creating such a beautiful oasis in the middle of a bustling city.

+1 for the delicious skin glow tea 😁

I found out about this store from the Internet, the photos looked lovely and it didn't disappoint! From the moment I stepped through the doors, I was welcomed warmly and offered a cup of delicious hot herbal tea!
Kayla and her husband John are one of the nicest and humble business owners I have met in this city, Kayla is very knowledgeable about her products and helped me in choosing my products. What I really appreciate is that she does not push you to buy but genuinely introduces the different product ranges to me as clean beauty is quite a new concept for me. I decided since I was visiting Melbourne that I was going to take an opportunity to try out some Australian clean beauty products. Unfortunately I don't have much luggage space so I had to choose only what I needed for now. Kayla was very kind in giving me some samples to try. I shall certainly give them a go. They send anywhere in the world so that's really good to know! There is a very good range of different types of products and brands. I really appreciate that they have done the hard work for their customers. All the products have been curated for their 'cleanliness' to ensure there are no nasties and chemically derived synthetics hiding in them. Therefore I can choose with confidence that everything on the shelves are 'clean' and of a high standard.
The store itself is beautifully and tastefully decorated with attention to details. It says a lot about their good taste.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Kayla and John for their kindness and friendliness shown to me, a much older lady! Sometimes we older generation gets a bit ignored at stores, but not at this one! I really enjoyed my short time shopping in your store, and will certainly be recommending it to all my friends! Wishing you both all the best in your business! Hope to see you again on my next visit to Melbourne.
If you are reading this, you should go visit! My only regret is that I forgot to take photos with Kayla in her gorgeous store 'cos I was talking too much! I had to contend with a photo of their beautifully decorated sandwich board on my way out!

Kayla and John really opened my eyes to natural beauty products. Didn't realise so many of my everyday items claiming to be gentle had so many genetically changing ingredients. You only need to look at the health complications around in this era that didn't exist before. Thanks for the free trial items too. Can't wait to try them. Highly recommend One Fine Secret. A hidden gem for clean beauty in Melbourne.

Hi Dustin, thanks so much for your beautiful visit, chat and your lovely feedback. It was great to see your curiosity in researching and seeking healthier alternatives for you and your family. Totally agree that it can be eye-opening to discover the impact of some of the ingredients commonly used in conventional products, from skin irritation, endocrine (hormone) disruption and more. Always here to help with any questions, look forward to seeing you again soon! Warmest, Kayla xx

I used to find an organic shop in Melbourne, but it's quite hard to find. Luckily, my friend and I found One Fine Secret from the internet, it is a neat and comfortable shop with great variety of products. We had a pleasant shopping there, and Kayla showed her professionalism to introduce the products to us, so that we can buy what suit to us. We definitely will go visit again!!!!

I dropped into the store today for a browse and ended up settling in for a beautiful cup of tea and a bunch of new knowledge. Kayla took the time to introduce not just herself (she is the owner) but the stories and art behind the natural beauty brands they stock.
I walked away with a very affordable all-natural organic BB cream, mascara and she threw in a free sample for me.
I’m new to natural beauty and didn’t feel pressure to buy anything. I will definitely be back!
