A Visit to LunchboxWax
I may be someone who’s often hitting the road exploring but that doesn’t mean that I don’t like to stay put and get pampered every once in awhile. I adore a day at the spa, love a good massage and enjoy a nice beauty treatment. I admit I’m bad at slowing down to treat myself but when I do I’m in heaven. In fact, I was just telling myself I needed to make an appointment to get my eyebrows done when I received an invitation to visit LunchboxWax, a full service waxing salon, and I immediately booked a session.
LunchboxWax was founded in 2010 by Debi Lane who previously worked at a day spa and consistently received raves for her waxing services. She noticed that there was a lack of places that specifically catered to waxing and decided to fill that niche. Soon LunchboxWax was born and now there are over 40 locations nationwide.
Currently there are three SoCal locations in West Hollywood, San Diego and Costa Mesa. I decided to visit the latter and made an appointment with Joanna for an eyebrow, lip and chin waxing. As you can see from the picture I really needed it.
The Costa Mesa location is on trendy 17th Street and while it does have a parking lot it tends to fill up so you may want to arrive a bit early to secure a spot. Once inside I immediately noticed the spotless, modern interior and knew I made a good choice.
After checking in I only waited a few moments before Joanna was ready for me. LunchboxWax offers private waxing rooms that are readily appointed with all that is needed for your session.
Joanna and I went over my services and we soon began. I know a lot of people are nervous about waxing because of the potential pain involved and while I do have a high tolerance for pain I admit it can be unpleasant. In this session I had no pain or discomfort whatsoever. I don’t know if Joanna has magic hands or if LunchboxWax’s products are just that good but it was the most comfortable waxing session I’ve ever had. Joanna was conscientious, fast and utterly thorough leaving me with beautifully shaped brows and a smooth upper lip and chin.
In addition, I experienced no pain or redness which was a definite plus (the blemishes in the picture were, sadly, there before my appointment). Usually, when I have my upper lip waxed I leave a place looking like I have a red mustache and this time there was no redness at all! I absolutely loved my experience at LunchboxWax and would return again in a heartbeat. In fact, that reminds me I need to book another appointment with Joanna!
LunchboxWax is a full body salon which means that they’ll remove pretty much any hair you want to get rid of. You can find a list of their services here and to book an appointment of your own click here.
