As a green beauty lover, going to spas has always been difficult. Spas may boast about their natural products, but their products often contain parabens and other icky chemicals. Not to mention the toxic polishes. For these reasons, I've avoided spas at all costs. There are a few natural ones of course, but they can be hard to find. Until now!
I recently had the pleasure of experiencing an all natural manicure and pedicure at RINSE beauty bar. The founders, June and Andrea, were incredibly genuine and kind, showing me their polishes and walking me through the services.
All of their polishes are 5 Free, which means they don't include formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, camphor or formaldehyde resin. So we were off to a great start! They also carry LVX, a luxury vegan nail polish line. I chose the shade Vamp, a deep purple that's perfect for Fall.
I was treated to The Escape, a mani and pedi that includes soak, scrub, cuticle work, hot towel and massage. The entire experience was so relaxing and despite the cold weather, my nails look fantastic and my skin is soft and smooth.
To scrub and hydrate, RINSE uses products from the Koya Natural Skincare line, a local beauty line that's dedicated to natural body care. Their sugar scrub is so luxurious and gentle enough for my sensitive skin, while their body cream offers light hydration.
Visiting RINSE was such a lovely experience. The environment was incredibly serene and calm, with a gorgeous interior. I loved how transparent and open the process was, from the natural polishes to vegan scrubs and creams. The treatments were just what I needed, and everyone was so friendly.
Along with their nail treatments, RINSE offers hair services, facials, and waxing services so they're all you need when treating yourself to a natural, vegan beauty bar experience. You can find them on Facebook and Instagram, and of course at their website.
Until next time,
*These treatments were complimentary, but my thoughts are honest.
