Why does Christmas and the holiday season never seem quite as calm as it looks in all of the pictures and movies? Before I was an adult, I used to think of Christmas as a time of relaxation, peace, quiet and happiness. But it seems like in trying to achieve that comes craziness and chaos.
Christmas is NEXT week already, with Christmas eve being just 7 days away. I wish I could say that I’m ready and prepared but I’m afraid it’s quite the opposite.
I have a long list of things to do before next week. I have some last minute shopping to get done (I swear next year I want it all done by Thanksgiving), some baking to do for a neighborhood cookie exchange that I organized, and a couple of appointments to get to. I would reschedule, but I always try to make an appointment for leg waxing in Huntington Beach BEFORE Christmas, because it saves me a lot of time not having to shave during the craziness that the last week in December and first week of January brings.
What’s on your list of things to do before Christmas?
I’ve been to my fair share of day spas around the Orange County area. There are PLENTY of them around, there’s no doubt about that.
But what makes a day spa stand out? What makes it worth going to over all of the others? I would say: a vast menu of services, friendly staff, a comfortable environment, and good pricing. I can say that I’ve found all of that and more with CloudMover Day Spa.
I was initially looking for a place to get a good leg waxing in Huntington Beach when I came across this place. A lot of people think I’m crazy for getting my legs waxed..ouch! But who wants to worry about having prickly legs when you live in a place that’s sunny and 70 degrees year round? Not this girl!
Anyway, check this place out! It’s great!
Waxing has evolved over the years and is now a common practice in most beauty salons and day spas. But who offers the best for the lowest price? I get my eyebrows, bikini line and upper lip waxed on a regular basis, I know it doesn’t sound too flattering. I have gone around to 3 different salons in the Huntington Beach area to locate the best waxing service for my buck. I’m a smart shopper, and when I say smart shopper I mean I am a coupon lady. See what I discovered, what I paid and what salon is the best to get waxing in Huntington Beach at!
1. ZenSpaOC: ZenSpaOC is known for their facials, massage and waxing services. I have come here before for a facial but never for a waxing. I am a bit particular on the waxing process due to my sensitive skin. I did feel comfortable there but the bikini line waxing was very painful and left my sensitive skin burning. To say the least I won’t be back for waxing.

Price: $40 for a Bikini: basic

2. CloudMover Day Spa: I have been here a few times and love it due to the cheaper pricing and groupons. The service and quality is above average with cheaper prices, which is exactly what I’m looking for. For waxing purposes this day spa hit the nail on the head. My sensitive skin wasn’t affected and the price was a good deal. I got an eyebrow wax here for only $15!

3. Skin So Sweet: this salon performed a sugaring waxing service. What is sugaring? Rather than applying wax and ripping off with strips, special wax is directly applied and gives skin a smoother surface. I feel it is better for more sensitive skin. Normally my upper lip is the most sensitive part of my skin. I was a bit red after the service, but it faded away and I noticed the hair strayed away for longer than traditional waxing. I paid only $10 and the service was exceptional.
