What: The Emerald Door Green Beauty Spa
8311 Grubb Rd, Silver Spring, Md.
Atmosphere: The minute you walk in The Emerald Door you feel good and cozy vibes all over the spa. The marble station where you get your manicure done is gorgeous, and the pedicure chairs also looked comfy. The lounge/waiting area has great natural light and the staff is very friendly. My appointment was for a facial–my first ever!–and it was done by Skincando owner and esthetician Sara Damelio.
What We Loved: It is hard to believe that I was a facial virgin all this time. I did not know what to expect other than a much cleaner face after lol. I started my facial by having a small consultation with Sara. The facial room smelled amazing and I instantly felt relaxed the minute I put on my robe. The Emerald Door Spa uses only green/organic products which I think is so cool–you are somehow also helping the environment while treating yourself to an amazing facial experience. The spa started with a steam session, which opened my pores. Sara did an incredible job analyzing my skin and giving me a little info about each product she used on my face. This was also the first time I got extractions done! That was a bit uncomfortable but very much needed! She also took the time to massage my shoulders and arms which felt amazing. At the end of the facial, my skin felt like butter! I plan to treat myself to this now at least once a month. I see a BIG difference on my skin after the facial so I am def keeping up this habit.
SCDC Tip: After your facial, you can actually buy a lot of the organic products they used on your face. I would come prepared to splurge on some of these amazing lotions and potions. Your face will thank you forever!
