One of my favorite beauty spots here in Seattle is Pharmaca, an integrative pharmacy that is all about natural health and wellness. It is a fantastic spot to get your green beauty fix as the stores carry brands like Jane Iredale, Dr. Hauschka, Acure and more. This where I discovered one of my favorite blemish remedies, the Sanitas Zapper.
Here in Seattle, we have 4 stores with a new store opening in the Queen Anne neighborhood this weekend but Pharmaca also has stores in California, Colorado, New Mexico and Oregon. While the Queen Anne store is more retail than a pharmacy, each store features professionals that are always on hand to answer any questions you may have. Wondering if that cleanser your eyeing is suitable for your skin type? Pharmaca’s esthetics can help you with that.
The Queen Anne location also has a beauty bar offering waxing and makeup application as services that not offered at their other locations. If you need help putting on a pair of lashes (which I always do) or need your brows done in a hurry, Pharmaca has trained estheticians on site with mini facials and makeup consultations always available and complimentary . What better way to try a product?
The Beauty Bar offers full face and brow waxing starting at $10 for each area, brows for $15 and full face waxing for $30. As for makeup, lash application starts at $10 plus the cost of lashes, an eye makeover is $15 and a full makeover is $30. I’m pretty tempted by the eye makeover…
This store opening is also special because its W3ll People official retail launch in the Seattle area. This is the only place in Seattle that you can find these products. I’ve been dying to try this line for years and shied away from ordering online because I wanted to see it with my own eyes first.
I had the chance to meet founders James Walker and Shirley Pinkson and talk about their eco-friendly line. Shirley is a beauty industry veteran who worked with MAC Cosmetics and NARS, iconic products from those brands serving as inspiration for some of W3ll People’s hero products. The line is all about multitasking and the idea that you can play with their products to create unique shades for lips, eyes and face. Shirley and I played with their mineral eyeshadow and Universalist Colorsticks to create the most gorgeous copper-bronzed cream eyeshadow I have seen in awhile. Now that the line is so close to me, I’m definitely trying it out.
One thing I also use Pharmaca for is a natural health resource. When I was having some trouble sleeping years ago, a kind soul had mercy and told me all about the natural remedies that they had to offer. When I was looking for some natural products to help with some hormonal skin issues I was experiencing, my first stop was Pharmaca. The staff is friendly and helpful, always ready to give a suggestion when you need it.
The store is now open with grand opening specials throughout the store. Check out the Queen Anne Pharmaca’s grand opening event today and tomorrow. The store is located at 1900 Queen Anne Ave N, on the corner of Howe and Queen Anne Ave N.
