Reviving My Skincare Routine with Balanced Soul Wellness
Like I mentioned in multiple posts lately – healthy skincare has been a top priority for me this year. As I’ve been changing up my products, being more mindful of the ingredients and how they affect my face, I’ve also gone directly to the experts! Many of you may be shocked to hear that I have never received a facial before – so when I saw that Balanced Soul Wellness opened up around the corner from me in San Marco, Jacksonville, I had to stop in.
My oh my this little spot is a GEM and I cannot wait to share my experience with you. If you can’t tell in the photos, this clean, welcoming space is deceiving from the front because it is HUGE inside. Full of 4 rooms ranging from services like facials, lashes/microblading, massage chairs for IV’s in an oasis, a back room for spray tans and a pilates studio, this place felt never-ending in the best way.
Balanced Soul Wellness is a full service beauty spa, specializing in natural beauty from IV services, to botox, to facials and even pilates! You can view their full list of services here, but I’ll speak to my services, which was a signature facial and a lash lift.
Like I said, for a newbie facialer (if that’s even a word), I had no real guidance on what the best products for my skin were before chatting with Elizabeth, the esthetician at BSW. Throughout my service she explained all the products and how they helped cleanse my skin to prepare for exfoliation, extractions and more. This was SO helpful and encouraging, as I was able to leave with knowledge to direct my morning and nightly routines. For my skin tone specifically, I learned that Vitamin C is queen when it comes to evening out my skin tone, clearing blemishes and helping with anti-aging. I was also introduced to the IMAGE Skincare line which I am now OBSESSED with.
After my facial and lash lift – which is exactly what it sounds like – lifting eyelashes similar to a perm experience, that adds curl and definition to widen and open eyes, I felt rejuvenated and for lack of a better word, completely balanced after a green juice and a walk outside. ;)
If you’re looking for a small but vast salon in Jacksonville - this is a MUST STOP.
