Anti-age me! I am always open for a facial that will help reduce fine lines, discoloration, and give me a healthy glow. Pamper my face! Make me look 20.
Somehow BeautyBalm Studio, a facial spa, makeup studio, and beauty retail boutique was a place I managed to walk by on Melrose (near Fairfax) countless times without even knowing it existed. Across the street is one of my favorite nail salons, B. One Nail Spa because it is oder-free, clean, not crowded, and the nail polish lasts twice as long as other salons.
This clean airy light studio BeautyBalm was a perfect spot to indulge in some facial relaxation and whisk away from the recent sizzling LA September. As I entered I noticed they sold luxury cosmetics like Becca, Caudalie, Kevyn Aucoin, and my favorite green mud mask that tingles called GlamGlow.
My signature anti-age facial lasted for over an hour which consisted of my face, hands, and shoulders being massaged. My face was pampered with many treatments like an infrared light in different colors. Jennifer, the licensed esthetician used a red light with a tiny zapping machine that shot electrical current through my skin to make sure the product really soaked in, as well as to promote and stimulate the regeneration of collagen from underneath the skin. Customized to meet my skin concerns, a citrus-y steam mist opened my pores, followed by deep cleansing, extractions, a vitamin packed mask and all sorts of creams, cooling cucumbers, and serums for care around my eyes which lulled me into a peaceful state in the luxurious back room.
This modern sleek spot is not only for facials, but lash boosts, brow defining, and makeup applications. They even offer small private parties (evenings or even Sunday brunch style) for women to come together, drink champagne, and brush up on their beauty skills. Recently, they had parties come in to learn about contouring makeup, applying eye makeup like a pro, and Make-Over Your Makeup Bag, where an artist will help you decide what to keep, throw out, and what you need to complete your look, followed by of course, a make-up application.
Their motto: Enhance your inner beauty with a brush of glam, a dash of lashes, a pinch of color, or the latest innovative skincare.
Make it a YOU day.
Stay tuned for my make-up look coming soon from Beauty Balm. Just like the Blo Bar, they have options, for make-up application, like Bronze It Up, No Make-up Makeup, Smoke It Up, and Pucker Up.
