Find out how germy those bottles get if you skip daily washings from nutritionist, Dana White!

If you have ever driven down the Post Rd and wondered about that New Beauty & Wellness place, It is worth popping in. There you will find a beautiful spa that quickly takes you outside of your day to day life, and transports you somewhere Zen. There you will also find Jennifer, a truly special esthetician who is kind, authentic, funny, and loves what she does. When she is with her two little ones, she loves camping, beach nights, and pizza at Colony Grill. She is not afraid to tell her kids that something is spicy (when it’s not!) as a simple ploy to keep them disinterested, and in a next life would maybe be a female contractor. If you meet Jennifer, you immediately want to do whatever she’s doing to her skin; stop by the spa sometime…we’re pretty sure you won’t regret It!

Do you know what the Pink Tax is? We didn’t either. The average woman pays an extra $1,351 on basic products and services every year, just for being a woman. They call it the Pink Tax. Many are calling it unacceptable. For this month of April, The European Wax Center is raising a pink brow against the pink tax by offering 13.51% off one product or service AND FREE pink brows in center for every guest (if desired!). Women deserve equal prices for equal products!!
