Twin Cities–born Sara Baumgartner built a name for herself in Los Angeles, in which she labored with prime-tier brow artist Damone Roberts and obtained experience at the 4 Seasons in Beverly Hills, making an extraordinary list of movie star clientele (howdy, Chrissy Teigen, Janet Jackson, and Package Harington!). But she always dreamed of opening her personal spa.

Last 12 months, she arrived across an opportunity to return to Minnesota with her family members in tow, and she jumped on it. Now open up in the Schmidt Brewery campus in St. Paul (inside the historic Rathskeller building) is The Darling Den, a holistic spa presenting personalized pores and skin care, waxing, and human body companies.

The menu involves brow and human body waxing, tinting, and natural and organic facials developed for distinctive skin varieties. Baumgartner is all about going again to fundamentals to nourish pores and skin with meals-and plant-based mostly ingredients—like colloidal oatmeal and goldenseal—instead of chemical substances.

In need of a pore pick-me-up? Attempt out her trademarked Blow Me Absent, a hyperbaric oxygen facial applying air merged with a hyaluronic serum to accomplish the deepest penetration of items into the pores and skin to help heal, elevate, brighten, and harmony. Very best of all, her providers never split the bank—with brow shaping commencing at $35 and facials at $75.
