A Crystal-Powered Natural Beauty Brand Débuts Its First Fast Facial Bar in LA

Skin Gym has opened a chic skincare studio near The Grove.

After working its jade rollers and rose quartz hearts onto the shelves of Nordstrom, Ulta, Detox Market, and many other retailers, LA-based Skin Gym is exercising its right to pamper our faces even further. Founded by natural skincare enthusiast and entrepreneur Karina Sulzer, the non-invasive beauty brand officially débuted its first-ever Skin Camp facial bar today on Beverly Boulevard — and it's now serving up affordable massages for visages starting at just $40.

Located not far from The Grove, the millennial pink skincare sanctuary uses organic products from Palm Desert-based The Body Deli for its signature crystal-powered "workouts" inspired by the ancient Chinese self-care practice of Gua Sha (which uses beauty tools to help redirect energy flow), including 15-minute services like the plumping and resurfacing CEO facial and the calming and moisturizing Crystal facial, and 30-minute treatments ($60) like the lifting and firming Sculpt facial and the energizing and brightening Glow facial.

For those in need of deeper pampering, expect 45-minute services ($80) like the anti-aging and hydrating Train facial (which includes Skin Gym's signature lifting and contouring massage) and the cleansing and soothing Detox facial (which includes facial brushing and extractions).

All "workouts" are finished off with custom gemstone face rolling and can be upgraded with $10 boosts like eye repair, lip plumping, ampoules, and masks; $15 boosts like extractions, AHA or enzyme peels, massages, and more; and $25 boosts like LED light therapy, oxygen blasts, and micro-current lifting.

Of course, expect the studio's shop to be fully stocked with Skin Gym's entire range of wellness and beauty accessories ($20 to $80), including facial rollers made of jade, amethyst, rose quartz, black obsidian, and blue sodalite gemstones; sculpty heart gua sha tools; facial brushes and cupping sets; crystal hair combs; silk eye masks; and more.

Beauty buffs seeking a regular facial sched can also lock in monthly maintenance with membership options ($99 per month) like three 15-minute facials per month, two 30-minute services per month, or a 45-minute facial with two boosts per month, to name a few. (You'll also score members-only deals and perks, too.)
