Walk into any salon (heck, even Target) and you’re bombarded with choices when it comes to skincare. You can spend $4, you can spend $400, or any combination thereof.  {When it comes to your face and reversing aging, no price is too much, right?}

Baltimore mom and entrepreneur Melissa Jacobson wasn’t satisfied with what’s out there. “I’ve tried all of them,” said Jacobson, referring to skincare products. “Trust me, if there was an eye cream that really truly worked, I would have found it. And we all would know about it.”

Her answer? Evolved skincare. Enter Bare SkinLabs.

You may know Melissa or her business partner Stephanie from Bare on the Square, their uber successful organic waxing studio in Canton. Bare Skinlabs, their newest venture which opened at Green Spring Station in Lutherville in spring 2014, is the area’s first skincare studio. Stop by for a facial, massage, brow treatment, waxing, or any skincare need. Need at-home product? The estheticians at Bare can complete a skincare analysis and custom blend a product while you wait or pick up lunch at Stone Mill Bakery — complete with your favorite scents.

“We’re all skincare,” said Jacobson. “We don’t do hair or make-up application like other salons. We’re specialists.”

This does not mean they are all organic. When organic and natural products are best, they’re using them. But Melissa acknowledges that sometimes a little non-organic enhancement does the trick. So yes, they do offer a suite of med spa and enhanced services including botox, sinless tanning, and permanent make-up.

Last week, we invited 18 (cool) local moms to try out Bare Skinlabs and their new evolved skincare philosophy. Moms were treated to mini-facials, mini-massages, brow waxing and custom product blending. {{We wanted to make sure they had the full experience!}} Here’s what some of our moms had to say:

“It’s the best sort of alchemy — natural, custom blended beauty products!”

“What a wonderful evening! I woke up this morning and my skin was still glowing from the fabulous mini facial

“Awesome shop and services, Bare Skinlabs!”

“Sprayed my awesome lemon / vanilla / blood orange custom blend tonight and it’s so yummy!”

One mom couldn’t wait to bring back her teen for a skincare consult and custom product. No one could wait to come back!
