Skin Beauty Lounge Media Day

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending Skin Beauty Lounge’s Media Day.  It was an exclusive and intimate event for media for Capitol Hill’s premiere spa.  Skin Beauty Lounge (404.5 8th Street, SE, WDC) was recently named by InStyle Magazine as the best place in D.C. for tanning and spa services.  I’ve heard of Skin Beauty Lounge before, but I never had the opportunity to visit, so I was super excited to attend this event.  

I was happy to know that Skin Beauty Lounge is conveniently located right located across the Eastern Market metro on the Orange/Blue Line.   Once I arrived,  I was welcomed by Janelle Langford of Urban Suite Entertainment and met some of the staff of Skin Beauty Lounge, including, owner, Meka Mathis, Megan, the receptionist and esthetican, Roxanne.

Their services include: body treatments (airbrush tanning, AHA Peel, Microdermabrasion),facials, brow & lash tinting,  eyelash extensions, makeup application and waxing services.  I know that the spa is well known for their premiere waxing services, especially the much talked about vajazzling. Their the first to offer this service in D.C.  Yet, as much as I was intrigued by the bling, I opted for a simple eyebrow waxing.

If you have followed me for a while, you know I’m very particular about who does my brows.  Trust me, I’ve had my share of brow waxing nightmares – (  Not every who performs this service actually does a good job, but I was in good hands with Roxanne.  She didn’t take too much off and surprisingly, I wasn’t red afterwards.  She simply cleaned up my brows and I was VERY pleased with Roxanne’s brow work.

Along with the fabulous products/services, wonderful decor, relaxing atmosphere, and convenience of location, I truly loved the fact, that they take evening appointments.  As a working women, it’s a little difficult fitting spa appointments in, when most spas take their last clients at 4pm/5pm.  Luckily, Skin Beauty Lounge, offers evening appointments Tuesdays-Thursdays, with the latest appointment at 7:30pm.  How cool is that?

While, I’m still working up the courage to get vajazzled, I think my next appointment with Skin Beauty Lounge will be a Pamper Party with my girls.   If you live in the DC area, I encourage you to make an appointment as well.  Visit Skin Beauty Lounge online at
