Awesome first Brazilian Wax experience, I highly recommend Magdalen's Pure Skincare. Not only is Magdalen pleasant and welcoming but the pain was minimal and she will let you know if it's the right time for her services or if you need to wait a little longer.... I wish I would've come sooner.

I have never experienced a waxing session like this before. Magdalen was so quick, and we were so engaged in a conversation that I didn't even feel a thing!...

I changed my previous 3 star review to a 5 stars because Magdalen provided excellent customer service by refunding me for the package I bought after my first service because I was unsatisfied with the how my first service turned out. She is fantastic at hair removal and professional business woman.

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.

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!!

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

It was a great experience! Magdalen was professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and funny. From my introduction call with her to my follow up call same day, Magdalen was awesome to work with. She took the time to explain each step of my peel to me and talked me through the aftercare, answering any questions I had. I’m excited to come back and see her!

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!

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. ����

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.

She is greedy and crazy! She tried to charge me way more because she was the only one illegally open during the quarantine, mind you she isn’t supposed to be and has probably risked multiple people lives because of it. I didn’t know at the time that she was open the entire time and that she couldn’t be recently. Then she tried to force me to tip more because well she didn’t like the tip of 18% I was giving. Then before I left she tried to force me to give a 5 star Reveiw, which I’m guessing is why she has so many. She was rude and forceful during my wax. I will not be returning here again. I will travel further.

Magdalen was so funny and natural throughout the wax. She made me feel completely at ease while she worked quickly and efficiently to almost painlessly remove the hair. SUCH a better experience than I’ve had almost anywhere else, and I’ve been getting waxes for almost 10 years now. I’ll definitely be coming back soon!

I can't praise Magdalen and Irene enough! I originally am a regular client of Irene's (whom Magdalen taught). Due to Irene's pregnancy (Congratulations!), I was referred to Magdalen. She and her work are of the highest quality professionally, aesthetically, and ethically. She is a pleasure to talk to, she is funny, and always makes sure that you are comfortable. If you are spending over an hour for a Brazilian wax only to have them tweeze you at the end, you're wrong and they're wrong. Magdalen never tweezes and doesn't need to go over the same area multiple times. Her products are gentler than others and get the job done efficiently. Come give Magdalen a chance, and DO NOT BE LATE! JUST DON'T.

This was my first time getting a Brazilian and I could not have picked a better place to go to. It was done so professionally, I was nervous about the pain and I didn’t feel any pain what so ever. Not only was it not painful, it was over so quick. I am beyond happy. Amazing place to get waxed!!

Magdalen was amazing. I have never had a Brazilian before and it was so quick and relatively painless. It was comparable to getting my eyebrows waxed. I was pretty nervous beforehand but she is honestly amazing and talked with me the entire time and made me feel comfortable. 100% would recommend to anyone.

When I saw the reviews for Magdalen's Pure Skincare, I knew that I had to go there and see what the buzz was all about. I was not disappointed!Magdalen was so personable and I can honestly say that this was the best wax that I have ever had! Not only was she professional (and truly went above and beyond to do an incredibly thorough job), but she also was so personable that the experience was almost painless! I booked my next session before I left and I can't wait to go back and see her next month!

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.

Ms. Magdalen was extremely nice and professional. I was recommended to her by my esthetician who is away on maternity leave and she was absolutely right about Ms. Magdalen! Her technique is painless and fast and she ensures that she does a thorough job. Ms. Magdalen also took the time to get to know me a bit more, which made our time together go by even faster! While I love Irene (my current esthetician) I would be more than happy to go to Ms. Magdalen when Irene is not available. I highly recommend!!

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!

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.
My very first time experience of doing Brazilian wax here with Magdalens went super AWESOME! I was nervous at first but she made me feel so comfortable afterward. It only took less than 20mins. I can’t believe how awesome I feel right now. Thank you so much Magdalen for this awesome first time experience! I’m definitely coming back for my next session. Thank you ☺️-Iris.

Guys the best wax I’ve ever had. I’m a CHILD when it comes to all things pain related and while waxing will never be a “fun” thing to do this was the least painful wax I’ve ever had, and I’ve been getting waxed consistently for over 5 years! The owner is awesome and will have you cracking up the entire time- I’m pretty sure we’re BFFs at this point lol But seriously, leave the large corporate waxing centers behind as you will be WELL taken care of here. Especially coming from not being waxed for over 5 months due to covid I was expecting a very painful appointment but to my surprise it wasn’t nearly the amount of pain I feel going to European wax and that’s when I go consistently! Book her the price is well worth it!

Ms. Magdalen is very sweet and she was very professional. I arrived on time and she took me in right away. The waxing process was easy and quick. The waxing didn’t even hurt. I went for a Brazilian wax and it was only 15 minutes and I walked out. I had a bad experience at European wax center and they did hard wax and they left me bleeding and I was the worse. They used powder on my skin and the wax took almost a hour and I was told my hair was too think to wax. Then they kept trying to force me to buy products for ingrown hairs. It was a awful experience and I left in pain. When I came to Ms. Magdalen she said it was going to be “magic” and it is worth it. I’m walking out feeling great and no pain. I highly recommend you visit her.
