Before becoming an online boutique, Skin Studio Beauty Co. was originally a spa with a small skincare boutique. After gaining 6+ years of experience as a Certified Esthetician at well-established spas in Guelph, Ontario, I opened my own skincare studio in 2014 and began building my team of passionate Estheticians.
In March 2020, the future of our brick and mortar boutique and spa was threatened, along with many other small local businesses. In an effort to find ways to continue to serve our clients in a world that was suddenly being taken 99% online we quickly set up our system for online ordering of our skincare products. We continued to grow our offerings, taking facials into the comfort of people’s homes through our Facial In a Box, and continued to offer virtual skin consultations via email, Instagram DMs and Zoom, and eventually put together our At-Home Body Sugaring Kits after seeing too many failed attempts at DIY waxing!
Following a vehicle accident in August of 2020 that devastated our brick & mortar boutique as we knew it, a complete re-branding was inspired, complete with a brand new online store platform, making our online shopping experience more and more user friendly. Our new platform launched in March of 2021 and by September Jenna joined our team as our E-commerce Manager.
By Christmas 2021 we had drastically expanded our boutique offerings to include more self care, wellness, and gift items and Jenna continues to improve our online experience all the time! We knew we had something special to offer by taking our small business mindset and personalized approach online, and are well on our way to becoming a top retailer across all of Canada for many of the brands we carry! We are so grateful for the opportunity to serve even more clients outside of our local community and bring our skincare knowledge and genuine care to clients far and wide!
