Best Beauty & Spa Services, 2017
Cinnamon & Sugar Me, Snohomish
My work with Live the SnoCo Life means running all over Snohomish County, trying business after business. I am always somewhere new. Don’t get me wrong, it is a fun and exciting life, but it has its drawbacks. If I’m lucky I get to visit a business or shop a maker a couple of times in a year, but rarely do I get to choose a favorite and stick with it.
One of the few exceptions to that is Cinnamon & Sugar Me of Snohomish. I have been going to see owner Danielle Moe every month for over a year now, and I have no intention of stopping anytime soon. I honestly wouldn’t trust my legs or my brows to anyone else. I probably don’t even need to tell you why, she did win our Best Beauty & Spa Services by a landslide after all.
For those of you unfamiliar though, I will. One of the biggest reasons why I return over and over is Danielle herself. She gets a gold star from me for actually getting me to relax and forget all about work. Don’t get me wrong though, we do talk local while I am there. The best part is the knowledge and love that she has for what she does though.
Her services aren’t just a job to her, it is what she was meant to do. That comes across in the way that she explains not only the services being provided, but how everything she is using on your skin works and benefits you. All things she learned through her education and experiences with others in the field. What would be a simple service anywhere else becomes an experience.
Now, let’s get down to a review of her services, starting out with all natural hair removal using sugaring, a method that is growing in popularity despite being around since ancient times. I’m someone who owns more dresses than I do pants, so hair free legs are a must. For forever, that meant shaving multiple times a week, and constantly dealing with the threat of that dreaded stubble. NO MORE. For weeks after sugaring treatments with Danielle, however, I find myself stubble free. More importantly, each time it grows back slower and slower and thinner and thinner. It is the most amazing thing ever.
I won’t sugarcoat it, there’s a bit of pain involved in freeing yourself from hair, less so the more you do it (there is a silver lining). You will find, however, that it is generally less painful than waxing due to the fact that it only attaches to your dead skin layer, not your living one (ouch). Danielle does an expert job of keeping you distracted from it all though, engaging in conversation about the service and life.
Next up is, what else, more hair removal. Cinnamon & Sugar Me offers eyebrow shaping services that will not only leave you looking fabulous, but one-of-a-kind. That is because of Danielle’s awesome attention to detail. She spends 45 minutes to an hour ensuring the shape of your brows perfectly matches your individual bone structure.
It may sound like a long time, but it seriously flies by and, even better, you barely feel a thing. I’ve made attempts at doing my own eyebrows from time to time, and it has never once been pain free, hence the from time to time. Brows are just something that is better left to the experts, and Danielle is just the expert to get your brows into shape.
Last but certainly not least are the facials, which as much as I love having hair free legs, was my favorite service by far. My busy bee mind selected the quickest one available, the 30 minute Get the Glow Mini Facial. If I knew then what I know now, I would have totally gone for a 60 minutes. Why didn’t I?
Being a first timer, I though facials were just having a bunch of gunk thrown on your face and then sitting around bored with it on there for what feels like forever. That’s all I’ve ever seen in the movies and on TV anyway. If you are thinking the same thing, not to worry, that wasn’t the case at all and Danielle’s facials are a must try.
That’s once again Danielle’s attention to detail, creating the perfect facial for your skin. The end result is skin that is beyond soft and smooth and a face that couldn’t possibly look more glowing or youthful. More importantly if you have a skin condition that requires a something a bit different she’s got you covered. There really is something for everyone.
Bottom line, if you are in need of spa services that will leave you looking and feeling fabulous, or just some me time to relax, then you need to get yourself into Cinnamon & Sugar me ASAP. I’d hurry because her appointment book is full for weeks to months in advance and you don’t want to miss out by waiting until the last minute.
