Karma Beauty Lounge

Last week I indulged in some pre-Valentine’s Day pampering at Karma Beauty Lounge. The mid-week beauty pick me up featured a blow dry tutorial station, eyebrow bar with celebrity makeup artist Erwin Gomez, an oxygen booster skin bar, and a champagne nail treatment.  Since my hair is natural I skipped the blow out tutorial and opted for a brow wax. My eye brows are extremely fine so usually I can get by with threading them once every 3 months. I was due for a touch up but I was slightly nervous. During my session with Adrian Avila I asked him his thoughts on beauty and life in DC and this is what he said:

If DC were a color it would be beige and I’m here to change that


Adrian has such a bubbly personality and clearly he knows what he’s doing. Since it was my first time he offered a humble brag that he’s been featured in Allure Magazine‘s Best of the Best in Beauty for best brows in DC. With that in mind I felt reassured and knew I was in good hands.


I was extremely pleased with the finished look. After my brows I headed to the back of the spa for an oxygen skin boost.


How the Intraceuticals Rejuvenate treatment works:

Remember back in the day when airbrushed nail art was the thing to do? Imagine that airbrush machine on your face. The oxygen under light pressure helps deliver of age defying ingredients to the skin at the same time as cooling and calming the skin. The Unique Rejuvenate Serum contains lightweight Hyaluronic Acid and a powerful combination of vitamins and antioxidants. Don’t worry if you didn’t major in Chemistry. Hyaluronic Acid basically helps to instantly hydrate the skin resulting in increased firmness, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and overall radiance. I can honestly say you can see results immediately! My esthetician completed one side of my face first to show me before completing my treatment. My skin appeared to be dewy yet it felt hydrated and clean. I’ll be going back so I highly recommend it!

Check out this quick video recap from the evening!
