Like a submarine pilot in love with a mermaid, hair after waxing returns to the surface less and less frequently over time. Send strands on a long honeymoon with today's Groupon: for $45, you get two Brazilian waxes at Champagne Skin Lounge in Carlsbad (a $90 value).
Champagne Skin Lounge's founder and passionate aesthetician, the Carlsbad-born Nicole Peters, frees skin from anything standing in the way of total effervescence. During signature Brazilian-waxing sessions, clients recline as Nicole swabs soft azulene oil–based wax across the skin to swiftly remove unwanted bristles from the root with maximal comfort and hygiene. Once overgrowth has been thoroughly cleared, women can expect to enjoy, soft, smooth skin that stays bare longer than after shaving or making sacrificial offerings of Nair. A dazzling chandelier greets guests as they enter, giving way to softly fluttering drapes in a serene, mint-green treatment room.
Champagne Skin Lounge
Guests with a taste for refinement find it the moment they step into Champagne Skin Lounge and find themselves bathed in the glow of a shimmering chandelier. But it's aesthetician Nicole Torres, Jennifer and Rebecca who cements the classy experience—she personalizes each waxing, facial, and massage service to ensure her clients get the royal treatment they crave. She custom-blends her facials from natural ingredients, mixing in professional h2t and Dermodality formulas to combat ailments such as acne, pigmentation, and fine lines, though her pumpkin peel can tackle all three problems, infusing pores with restorative nutrients that elicit admiring whistles from jack-o'-lanterns. While the services may feel luxurious, Peters works hard to ensure her spa remains welcoming and unpretentious, making it accessible to even the shyest clients who swing by for the shop's specialty Brazilian waxes.
