I am a lotions and potions girl. When I was a teenager I subjected my friends to the latest skin care routine I read about in Seventeen magazine. When my husband and I go into Home Depot I’m looking for the Beauty aisle. (It’s not there yet but I don’t see why there can’t be a spa section right by the Bathroom remodel aisle.) I enjoy seeking out good, quality skin care and makeup and sometimes my favorites are in more than one location. My eye cream is at the mall, some make-up items are at a store across town and my cleanser and lotion is on-line. Recently I was introduced to a store that has all of these products under one roof along with items to help keep your house clean and chemical free along with a full-service pharmacy, Pharmaca.
Pharmaca began in Boulder, CO in the year 2000. From one small store Pharmaca is now located in 5 states (for locations click here) and has a full store on-line. Their certified practitioners will help guide customers through their selection of over-the-counter medications, alternative remedies, and natural cosmetics and body care products for a stress-free shopping experience. I felt a sense of calm when I walked in the store and was greeted with pleasant music and a cheerful “let me know if I can help you”.
After perusing the offerings in the vitamin and personal health care area I was drawn to, what else, the skin care and cosmetics section. They have a Natural Beauty Bar that provides the services of Brow & Facial Waxing. You can also have a full make-up application and/or lash application. These services are walk-in available but can also be made by appointment.
One my favorite skin care products is the Dr. Haruschka line. The Dr. Hauschka Lemon Lemongrass Vitalizing Body Wash is so good!
Before,during and after you test your products you can rinse off in the wash basin perfectly placed by a sampling of the make-up testers. You’ll definitely want to try the Dr. Hauschka Lavender Sandalwood Calming Body Wash.
Within Pharmaca you will find health supplements easily identified in symptom categories. If you can’t find what you are looking for trained staff is on hand – and one even noticed my raised eyebrows and chimed in with “Can I help you find something?” Now, if only my kids were that clued in to my expressions!
I’ve had lovely shopping experiences at Pharmaca and was so pleased with the customer service. The Pharmacy was well staffed and the waiting area had hot and iced tea for their waiting clients. If you choose to move your prescriptions to Pharmaca you will receive a $30 gift card, which will be spent well at this store, for sure! There are various monthly events that are focused on the health and well-being of everyone in your family. For August they are featuring the Healthy Mom & Baby event with lots of fun offerings. (Check your local Pharmaca for event dates/times.)
