Skin Script

A few months back, I was lucky enough to see my dream come to fruition when the Pennsylvania State Board of Cosmetology approved my application for an Esthetician Salon License.  My shop was finally born after years of hard work!  After intensive research and sampling various products, I finally settled on what has become my favorite skin care line that I have ever worked with.  Skin Script.  It is amazing!  The products are top notch, and the owner and staff are extraordinarily knowledgeable with the best customer service I have ever experienced.  In 13 years of experience, I've worked directly with the following professional skin care lines:  Dermalogica, Bioelements, Avance, & Guinot.  While these lines are each very good and unique in their own way, none of them provided me with that "wow" factor that a good, professional skin care line should provide.  Skin Script is different.  It's an all natural, fruit based line that is not only high quality, but is affordable.  Finding a good quality, affordable skin care line is a tricky feat.  But Skin Script has accomplished it, with flying colors!

My favorite thing about this line is the aroma that every single product releases.  Because it's all fruit based, my studio often smells like a tropical island.  Seriously.  I've had clients tell me that during their facials they've felt transported to places like Jamaica, Mexico, Hawaii, and more.  I've heard comparisons to Pina Coladas, Margaritas, Mojitos, Mai Tais, and so on.  There are no added fragrances to the products, just the natural scent of the fruit.  Not only do these products smell amazing, but they provide excellent results for skin concerns such as: Aging, acne, clogged pores, fines line, age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation and rosacea.  Yes, this product line is safe for rosacea and sensitive skin! Bear in mind however, not every product will be safe for sensitive skin or rosacea.  

Over the next few weeks and months, I'll be posting a Skin Script product every week and giving you an in depth description of its uses, ingredients, and benefits.  Feel free to post questions, and I'll do my best to get back to you ASAP!  Join me on this super fun skin care journey and learn more about your skin and how you can help it!  I'm so excited to share my love of these products, and I hope you learn something new and exciting.

Welcome to Spring!

The seasons are a changin' folks!  Though the official start of spring is still a few weeks away, the spring weather is forcing its way in.  Finally!  The season of renewal is upon us, and with this change in seasons, so comes some changes in the service menu here at Cara B. Design & Wellness.  Back in October, I added facials to my service menu using a fabulous professional skin care line, called Skin Script.  As I've gotten to know the Skin Script product line better, I've been excited by the opportunity to create seasonal facials based on their limited edition seasonal products.  For example, they came out with a Cherry Enzyme and a Chocolate Mint Mask for the winter months, and just recently released their new Grape Enzyme for the spring months.  Various other products are available year round, such as the lemon zest enzyme, the raspberry peach enzyme, the strawberry spearmint mask and the goji berry yogurt mask, just to name a few.  


While every Cara B. facial is customized to your specific skin care needs, the following specialty facials are only available for a limited time. Each of the specialty facials listed below are specially designed for particular skin types.  If you don't like the sound of one of the facials below, or if you like one aspect of it, but not everything, never fear, I can change out the enzyme or mask to something that you'd prefer!  

heck out the blog in the coming months when I delve deeper into the benefits of the ingredients in the products from this fantastic skin care line!

Welcome!

Welcome to Esthetician’s Day Off!  As a busy Esthetician, Massage Therapist, Educator, Makeup Artist, and Textile Artist, I don’t get a lot of days off.  However, on those rare days off I enjoy playing with my products and giving myself the treatments and services that I offer to others.  Not only is it a fun way for me to pamper myself on my very needed days off, but it’s also one of the best ways for me to test out my products and services for their safety & efficacy.

I own 2 small businesses, Cara B. Design & Wellness and Cara B. Design Studio.  With Cara B. Design & Wellness, I work as a Licensed Esthetician & Makeup Artist, Licensed & Board Certified Massage Therapist, and Nationally Certified Massage Therapy Continuing Education Provider.  Under Cara B. Design Studio, I design and create unique wallets, handbags, diaper bags, and various other accessories with vintage and antique upholstery fabrics.  These 2 businesses keep me extremely busy and tremendously motivated.

Check in with me each week (sometimes every other when I’m super busy) as I test out my various facials, body treatments, retail products, and more!  While most posts will focus on skin care, you may find a post here and there about massage therapy, muscle wellness, arts, and so on.

Join me on my day off!
