As i wanted to give a genuine review i wait for almost 3 weeks to give this review. I wanted to wait and see if results last long 😊. Thank you magdalen i am glad i found you. To start with i always had problematic skin right from my teens with acne. Now am in my mid 30s and it has got a little better ( better in my case is always have atleast have min 2 active acne.... i know 😕) but suddenly towards end of last year i got sudden flare up of harmonal acne on my jaw line it was the worst i hav ever seen. By worst i meant there was no little space left without acne on my jaw line. And that phase lasted for few months which has left me lot of acne scars. So finally i met Magdaline one day and she talked about VI peel i wasnt convinced to speak truth i told her let me think about it. I came home and did research on this for couple of weeks and then took a plunge to try it. And thats the right decision i have made. I peeled for gud 10 days I followed instructions to the T. After 10 days i had like baby skin on my face 😁 yaayyyy!!! And i know its only starting. If one VI peel can do this i can only imagine how it will feel after couple of them. After 10 days all my acne scars were lighter and few of them disappeared and stubborn ones got lighter. Also my hyperpigmentation got much better not disappeared i wasnt expecting to disappear but am confident that it will eventually go with couple of peelings. I am happy with peel and i will be going soon for next one.If at all u think abt getting VI peel follow the instructions to the dot. Especially regarding sun exposure. I locked myself for 10 days with no sunlight falling on my face.This review is from a kind of person who never ever even had a skin care routine or even daily moisturizer routine 🙊 i know.... but after peeling i started to take care of my skin more than ever afterall i wouldnt want the results to go in drain.Magdalen thank you so much for recommending wat exactly my skin needed.

Very professional and felt comfortable during the entire visit
00:36 11 Feb 19
Omg... the reviews were true! I have never had such a quick and comfortable wax! Great experience. Thanks, Magdalen!
11:39 20 Mar 20
Magdalen is a amazing lady and she did an amazing job! I was so nervous about getting my Brazilian wax especially as a first time client with her but she made me feel so comfortable. She engaged in conversation with me the whole time and that kept my mind off the waxing. She was very gentle and the pain was very minimal. I was so happy with the results. The place overall was tidy and very well kept. I will definitely book with her again. Totally recommend!
17:16 12 Mar 20
It was my first time doing the Brazilian wax, and I had heard so many bad stories, and how much it hurt, but with them none of that was true. It was very quick, and it did not hurt as it was described. Definitely using them again.

So I have been wanting to get a Brazilian wax for a long time now but I've been scared to go. Magdalen made me feel so comfortable. Even though I felt super...
15:44 27 Feb 20
This has got to be the BEST waxing experience I have ever had. I came here skeptical because of the pain I normally feel during waxing at other places. I would never wax without numbing cream before. Let me tell you I came to Magdalen’s Pure Skin without using numbing cream and I felt NOTHING. ABSOLUTELY NO PAIN. And my skin is so smooth, it’s unbelievable. And her professionalism and knowledge about everything skin is absolutely admirable. Thank you Magdalen. I am never going anywhere else for waxing services.I would give this 10 stars if I could. That’s how satisfied I am.
13:36 07 Mar 20
Ms. Magdalene did my first Brazilian and it was a great experience. She was so warm and endearing that it felt like my mom was doing it. Thank you Ms. Magdalene for making my first experience a great one and for calling to check on me afterwards. Highly recommend!!

High quality esthetician who knows what she's doing! Pain free wax and great conversations. I have found my new go-to esthetician.

Magdalen was awesome! I scheduled an appointment with her, to which I thought she had canceled by text minutes after. I get a call from her the day of my...
11:30 29 Jan 20
So happy to find Magdalen! I stopped coming from the previous place because they stopped providing high quality service. I can tell Magdalen's products are high quality and she takes her time. I was told in the previous place that I cannot move around after the wax but Magdalen did not agree. I'm happy with my experience and will definitely coming back!
16:47 29 Feb 20
I've never had a Brazilian wax and was very nervous about the pain. After reading such great reviews on yelp I was excited about giving this business a try....
11:51 09 Dec 19
So I have been wanting to get a Brazilian wax for a long time now but I’ve been scared to go. Magdalen made me feel so comfortable. Even though I felt super exposed she, she made me laugh and asked lots of questions. She’s truly an amazing woman and I definitely recommend her for all your waxing needs. Thank you!
23:08 27 Feb 20
Great and friendly people! Definitely will be back soon!
00:44 01 Feb 18
I recently called to set up a new-client and first-time waxing appointment. The owner answered the phone and was extremely helpful and informative. She was upfront with the days that she is most busy and helped me find a date that would work perfectly with my schedule.
15:37 20 Feb 20
One word - Supreme!More words:Magdalen’s approach is so soothingly forward. She is a no nonsense business woman with complete confidence in her craft that is validated by her application. I was so impressed with her and as fast as she was she was precise and still very considerate and caring about my being as a whole. She is 100 % the “ African Magic” she claims. I’ll be back in a few weeks. Thank you for creating a pleasant experience for me. I appreciate you, Magdalene
20:56 17 Nov 17
First time waxing experience, it was painless. Magdalen was very professional about best procedure for varying skin types and conditions. She will rather provide best skin care treatment than what customer requested. I trusted her judgement and it was an amazing experience. I’ve found an esthetician finally.
14:44 18 Feb 20
Finally found an exceptional skin care provider in the dmv. After moving back from Southern California, it has been a struggle between finding a good skin care place and the winter weather which makes skin conditions worse. Just did a VI peel and waiting for the peeling to begin. Thanks Again Magdalen.
20:31 15 Feb 20
It was awesome!!! I was really nervous but am glad I went and got the Brazilian wax!!! I would definitely recommend anyone. if I new about the place before, I would have gone there!! Magdalen is really good and cares about her customers.. thank you once again!!
22:39 02 Sep 17
I received a phone call from Magdalen almost immediately after scheduling my appointment online. We discussed what I needed and she gave me advice for best results. She prioritized my happiness instead of just trying to get the sale . She was very upbeat and friendly. I’m very excited for my first visit!
00:37 14 Feb 20
She did great and was very friendly. I like the location and the facilities were very clean.

Truly great experience!

I absolutely loved my experience. Will go back again.
21:59 25 Aug 17
I recently tried to get my first Brazilian at European Wax Center. I thought since they specialize in waxing it would be a good experience. I couldn’t even finish the Brazilian because the pain was excruciating. I bled and the hair didn’t even come off. It was cold and unwelcoming. I couldn’t relax. I won’t be going back there. I looked at the reviews on here and decided to go to Magdalene. Best experience ever! She’s so awesome. Very personable and she is fantastic at waxing. I will be recommending her to everyone I know, and I will definitely be going back!
00:45 09 Feb 20
I love! Love! Love this place! I remember looking for a place to get my eyebrows tinted and was so afraid of the wrong person doing them. So I looked up various places and reviews. They have great reviews so I took a leap of faith and booked an appointment. The first time I went I got my eyebrows shaped and tinted and let's just say I've been addicted every since. I also got theeeee most amazing facial ever! Irene was so professional and answered all my million questions. I walked out there looking fabulous!!! I recently went back to get a wax and boy was I nervous! I thought I would be screaming and praying for my dear life. But Magdalen the wax ninja made sure I was comfortable and did a wonderful job! I've found a great place and plan on going back! Make an appointment I won't regret it!
00:14 14 Jul 17
Go for the wax, stay for the conversation! M takes the trauma out of waxing, both with her speed and her personality.
13:58 08 Feb 20
This is the best place in Maryland to get waxed. Magdalen is gentle and does a excellent job. I was so afraid to get my very first Brazilian but after leaving there I booked my next appointment with zero hesitation. The place its self is beautiful and I absolutely love the way it smells. I would recommend her to everyone she is truly a wax ninja. ����
23:14 12 Jul 17
Did a great job, fun to talk to, great facility, I recommend 👍
22:43 04 Feb 20
Excellent service, Magdalen is hilarious, very professional & knows what she is doing. Highly recommend this location for any waxing needs 🙂
01:56 22 Jun 17
Please arrive on time people. Mag is serious about her appointments 😩😁. I got the Brazilian wax + serum & it was such a wonderful experience (yes I really did type that lol). I laughed the entire time. Mag is so down to earth, knowledgeable and full of life. I was in and out in out yet I didn’t feel rushed at all. No time wasting! Let’s just say I’ve found another home. I’m already counting down to my next appointment. Thanks Magdalen!🥰
20:21 01 Feb 20
I chose this place based on a co workers review and wasn’t disappointed. It was my first time waxing and Ms. Magdalen was wonderful. She made it very easy and distracted me the entire time. If you need waxed, you need to go here.
14:39 31 Jan 20
Me alegra haber escojido este lugar. Mi experiencia fue excelente. Magdalen es muy profesional y amistosa. Todo el tiempo me senti con confianza. Definitivamente recomiendo a todos!!!
16:42 18 May 17
I’m glad I chose this place for my first experience. I don’t have painful stories to tell. The place is nice and clean, smells really nice too. Will be back!!
02:46 27 Jan 20
Fast and smooth wax. I had almost an entire body wax and I feel great. I'm making this place my regular!
22:04 28 Apr 17
From the moment an appointment is made to the moment you walk out from the appointment, Magdalen’s Pure Skin Care is prompt on time and pr. Calls and discuss what needs to be done before an appointment. The process was smooth and very comfortable. I would highly recommend her to everyone. Thank you for your professionalism and the wonderful service you provided.
00:41 24 Jan 20
I absolutely adore this place. Both Magdalen and Irene were so sweet and compassionate. They made me feel relaxed and comfortable. Irene worked fast and efficient. She talked with me like an old friend. In first meeting me I forgot my purse and they didn't hesitate to let me know it was no big deal I could still get waxed and come back to pay. Immediately I calmed down and knew I was in the right place and a place I would continue to come back to.
22:21 12 Apr 17
The best wax job in the dmv!!! She was fast and nice
16:38 23 Jan 20
I had the most amazing experience with Magdalen! She was so sweet and extremely professional. She made me feel comfortable and my waxing was done fast and efficiently!! You must go see her!!
20:18 25 Mar 17
Quick and excellent service!
16:45 19 Jan 20
If your looking for an enjoyable waxing experience this is the place to go. And yes I said enjoyable, Magdalene works speedy with skill and precision which will ease any apprehension. I absolutely love my experience here and I'm never disappointed!!
17:51 25 Mar 17
Experience was fantastic. Brazilian waxing was painless. Place is sparky clean and hygienic. Madgalen is very pleasant and engaging that I didn't realize how fast and painless. I would recommend any type of waxing with her. Worth going there. Will visit again.
20:39 18 Jan 20
She's fast, funny and it was not painful at all. She has been doing this since 2008, I went to many different places before and I'm glad I finally found my permanent wax place.
16:18 17 Jan 20
This was my first experience with getting waxed and Magdalen did an excellent job in calming my nerves! Not only was she easy to talk to, but the appointment was done within 15 minutes. Definitely going back!
15:39 12 Jan 20
Best waxing experience I have ever had.
00:24 08 Mar 20
Magdalen knows what she’s talking about!! 5 Stars! I appreciate the knowledge she gives me about my skin! The wax is painless! P-A-I-N-L-E-S-S! I’m getting ready to start the V Peel and I’m so glad I came to her for it!

15:16 01 Mar 20
Amazing service and care for clients! Could not recommend Magdalen enough! I drive >45 minutes to see her. So worth it!Updated to include —> Not only is she The. Best. For waxing, she does amazing hydrafacials, and VI peels! My skin is glowing after seeing her!
00:10 22 Feb 20
This was my VERY FIRST TIME EVER, getting waxed. Magdalen made it an EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME!! She was warm, funny, efficient and EXTREMELY ENTERTAINING!! I thank her for making me comfortable and For a FANTASTIC job. �
01:22 20 Mar 17
I just finished my Brazilian wax with Magdalen and it was a great experience. The room was very clean, smelled great, and had relaxing music playing in the background. She was very knowledgeable, worked efficiently, and made every effort to make me comfortable. I will def be back and would highly recommend her !!!
18:16 16 Feb 20
You don't even notice you are being waxed, she is that awesome!

19:59 18 Feb 17
Magdalen was amazing!!!! This is the first time since I was 13 years old that I’ve had a pain free wax and I’m not walking out of my waxing appointment in pain feeling like I need to go lay in bed with a pack of ice on my private the rest of the day! I will be recommending her to all my friends from now on!! After having horrible and painful experiences at the European Wax Center and at Organic Sugaring center in Bethesda this is first time I have a painless free wax and I’m never going back anywhere else!!
16:37 11 Feb 20
16:32 08 Feb 20
Magdalen is the most precious person on earth! She's so funny and so energetic, I am so happy I went to her. I recommend her to anyone. No questions asked! Her humor and hospitality is like no other. Thank you <3
18:59 21 Jan 17
Magdalen is sooo incredible. I was very nervous about setting up my very first wax appt and Magdalen called me, not messaged..but called me to explain everything and go over any questions I had to make me feel comfortable. By the time I was done with talking to her I was laughing so hard my stomach hurt! She made me feel so at ease as if we were friends for many many years. I had to reschedule appt, but it wasnt an issue at all and she is super flexible. I would recommend this place 1000%!!
02:03 04 Feb 20
It was very nice, the ambiance was very calm and even though I was nervous about my first time everything went amazing. Also waxing is not as painful as you think
21:38 11 Jan 17
00:58 31 Jan 20
I love her she is so funny ! She made me laugh the whole time I enjoyed her service
00:10 09 Dec 16
The minute I made the appointment that I was referred to by my sister. She was so prompt to call me and discuss what needs to be done before an appointment. I came in on time and she was already there waiting for me. It was my first time getting a wax and she made the process smooth and very comfortable for me. I would definitely recommend her to everyone. Thank you for your professionalism and I will be back.
20:43 23 Jan 20
Go!!! She is absolutely amazing at what she does! I went in for her Brazilian Wax Treatment and I will be coming back to her for more of her services. When you first walking in you are greeted with a smile and it smells AMAZING!!! She makes you feel so comfortable right away, there isnt that awkward feeling of someone new is down there working on your business. No missed spots and it was a really quick service. I'll definitely be returning!! Thank you Magdalen!
12:50 19 Jan 20
I had the best experience here! I went for my first Brazilian wax. I was a little nervous. But Magdalen made me feel comfortable before I even went to the spa when I booked the appointment, so when I went there, I felt comfortable immediately. She is not only very friendly and personable, but also professional. Magdalen uses the best waxing product available. The waxing was quick and painless. The spa itself is clean and relaxing. I have booked my second appointment for my next waxing and plan to go back for other services. Magdalen's prices are reasonable for the outstanding service she gives.
03:29 29 Nov 16
Magdalen is amazing!! Very friendly and approachable 🙂
17:48 16 Jan 20
I recently got a Brazilian wax from Magdalene Skin Care by Magdalene herself; and I must say that it was less painful as I expected. The chatters during the process made is it very seamless and bearable. I feel so carefree and liberated, especially you know where and it is amazing for a change. I am contemplating having another one very soon depending how quickly hair grows back and my schedule. If you have never had one or seeking a different aesthetician, look no more as Magdalene is your solution. Please make an appointment and I assure you will not be disappointed; at least I wasn't!
15:00 29 Oct 16
Magdalen is professional and takes a true interest in her clients making sure they are happy with the results and process. She is friendly and kind making the experience easy. I highly recommend Magdalen Skin Care.
09:26 07 Mar 20
She is very professional and does an excellent job with waxing.
14:42 20 Feb 20
Magdalen was wonderful and so chatty--necessary when getting waxed to keep your mind off of any pain. With that said, I didn't really feel that much pain, which is very nice. I've been getting waxed for over 10 years, so I have experience with many estheticians. If you're in the Rockville/Gaithersburg area, I recommend Magdalen.

Let me say, I have gone to many places to get a Brazilian wax and it never has been pleasant. This is the first time were I have been happy. She was quick and efficient, felt no pain. She has African magic.
21:40 04 Aug 16
Great experience! Magdalen is so knowledgeable and kind. She really made me feel at home. I will definitely be coming back from now on!
22:02 31 Jan 20
After struggling for months to find a good, reasonably priced, enjoyable waxing salon, finding Magdalens Pure Skincare was truly a blessing. She was fast, and efficient and I was extremely pleased with the results. I look forward to my next appointment.

Magdalen is AWESOME!!!!
22:10 14 Mar 20
I decided to try waxing and Magdalen’s is the only spa in Rockville that will do Brazilian for men. I was nervous about the pain, having never done it, but Magdalen was very reassuring.It went much faster than I expected. In and out in just over half an hour. Very professional, we enjoyed a great chat throughout the process, and I’m very pleased with the results.Thanks, Magdalen!
22:40 14 Feb 20
I found Magdalen on Yelp and I'm so glad I did! I was going to another esthetician who I wasn't very happy with and needed to find someone else. Magdalen was super fast, very friendly and made me very comfortable. It wasn't nearly as painful as it was at my previous place and you can't beat the location! I already made my follow up appt! Thank you Magdalen!
21:09 09 Jul 16
I really enjoyed my wax session with Magdalen. She’s hilarious, friendly and very personable. I definitely recommend and will back for a facial.
04:28 24 Jan 20
Had such a great experience. I went in for a facial but Magdalen gave me an honest consultation. I needed something stronger and ended up getting a Vi Peel. My results have been amazing, my skin is brighter, plumper. I couldn’t be more pleased look forward to my next treatment!
19:36 28 Feb 20
I had a great first experience! Totally recommend going here! Very friendly and she is funny! She made everything comfortable.
22:21 01 Jul 16
was there for the first time..was pretty scared but she made me comfortable,talked me through the Brazilian wax process,it was really a great experience for me.She is definitely good at what she does.thank you Magdalen
00:09 18 Jan 20
The best place for waxing. I always feel so relaxed, pain free and completely comfortable.
17:39 24 Jun 16
I did a VI peel, I was a little hesitant at first but Magdalen assured me that it would be the best option for the results I was trying to achieve. The spa is beautiful and cozy, and Magdalen’s personality is one of a kind, it’s been one week since the treatment and my skin has never looked and felt better, will definitely be getting more VI peel treatments at Magdalen and I’m also eager to try her other services, I’d give her 10 stars if it were possible.
23:20 07 Feb 20
Pleasantly surprised. I have had other Brazilian waxes in the past and this was by far the best one I have ever had! Quick, easy and not very painful at all (unlike the other ones I have had) I was so nervous I was even shaking before getting it done and it was no big deal! I highly recommend them!
16:48 11 Jun 16
I had a Brazilian wax for the first time. I am blown away at how quick and painless the process was with Magdalen! She was so welcoming and answered all my questions. I was very nervous because I’ve heard how painful waxing could be from friends who went other places, but this didn’t hurt at all. I’ve booked 2 more sessions! I will definitely be coming back. This was by far the best experience I could have asked for and I feel extremely lucky to have found this place!
21:19 14 Mar 20
My waxing experience was superb! Magdalen made my appointment very quick, easy & comfortable! I will be returning and referring friends! Thank you!
23:40 16 May 16
Magdalen was amazing from the moment I booked the appointment. Within an hour she called to discuss my services and talk me through my first visit. It was quick, easy, and best of painless.
23:45 07 Mar 20
Magdalen is awesome! No matter your age or physical limitations, she can get the job done without hurting you!! I can't say enough good things about my experiences at Magdalen's Pure Skin Spa
19:09 29 Apr 16
Magdalen is beyond great, she is actually a wax whisperer :-). A trained esthetician with amazing people skills, it is truly a joy to interact with her while she takes care of your needs. A painless experience from the minute you walk into her cozy place, which always smells nice might I add, and an even less painful experience getting waxed, to my surprise, while chatting away and being entertained by Magdalen. She really is a jewel. Def worth my time and money!!
17:24 06 Mar 20
This lady does amazing work !! I had my second Brazilian wax today and booked my 3rd in the same day. She is clean, professional, and quick. Offers excellent products that actually work at affordable prices. Forget about the bad stories you've heard. Magdalen's pure skin care is the place to go!!
02:41 10 Jun 16
Great place! I would definitely come back and I would definitely refer here to my friend. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 😀
21:34 29 Feb 20
Love, love, LOVE Magdalen - she is does an amazing job and keeps training and improving her skills and techniques. Take it from this loyal customer of 6+ years.
