Reporting Sibila Vargas
Southern California (CBS) — Keeping up a beauty regimen can get costly at the high-end spas.
Lauren Stokes, of Laverne, said, like many moms out there, an upscale beauty treatment just isn’t in her budget.
“The prices are astronomical and, for someone like myself, a stay-at-home mom who has kids, you need to think about the pricing as well as the time you are going to spend there,” Stokes said.
But CBS2’s Sibila Vargas found some affordable beauty deals through the Southland that allow for indulgence without breaking the bank.
Her first find was Clear Complexion Spa Retreat in Glendora, where Stokes doesn’t feel like she’s compromising on luxury. For just $15 Stokes got her eyebrows waxed – a service that can cost up to $40 elsewhere.
“Fifteen (dollars) is an incredible price for me to pay. I know some places do a little bit less, but I feel that with your eyebrows you do want to get it perfect,” Stokes said.
Clear Complexion also has a $25 spray tan deal. If you buy three sessions each costs $20.
For $50, Zina’s Skin Cure in Glendale offers a one and a half hour facial with microdermabrasion.
For just $25, Pure Sole in Huntington Beach has a one hour full body massage with our clothes on in a group setting.
Carol Levey, of Woodland Hills, said she once spent $145 on a pedicure for herself and a mani-pedu for her daughter at a high-end spa.
PediSpa in West Hills offers the same treatments for $46 total.
“I absolutely love it,” said Levey’s daughter, Alexandra.
Levey saved money on her daughter’s beauty treatments because girls 15 years and under can indulge in the Little Princess manicure for just $10 and a pedicure for $18. There was enough money left over for Levey to get an $18 basic pedicure as well.
The Spa Loft in Woodland Hills offers a 45-minute teen facial for $55 – a $90 savings Levey wants other moms to know about.
