Last month while I was in LA I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with BeautyBalm, an adorable beauty studio right on Melrose. While I was there I received a lovely facial from Jen, the owner, and makeup application afterwards so I was ready for a dinner date with friends.
[above] Jen has the gentlest hands out of any aesthetician I've ever received a facial from! [below] BeautyBalm stocks a few select makeup and skincare brands, including a few of my favorites (Becca, Glamglow) and a few new-to-me brands like Kevyn Aucoin and Caudalie.
This little gem of a spot is so relaxing and inviting. If I lived in LA I could definitely see BeautyBalm being my go-to spot for an eyebrow wax during my lunch break, or something a little more luxurious like eye lash extensions (I've been wanting to try them lately and haven't yet! If you've tried them, what do you think about them?). If you stop by, tell Jen I said hi! And don't forget to snap a photo of the 'gram-worthy vintage blue couch by the entrance.
