Oasis Face Bar Debuting Downtown This Week
A new concept in skincare and a first for Columbus, Oasis Face Bar will celebrate its grand opening at 20 E. Gay St. on Thursday, April 12.
The 600 square-foot storefront will offer a straight-forward menu of facials focused on results accomplished at a speedier pace and more affordable price point than the traditional spa experience. Incorporating all-natural products with non-invasive technology, Oasis Face Bar will offer targeted treatments addressing anti aging, acne, dark spots, dull, lackluster skin and men’s skincare.
Facials will run 30 minutes and cost $49. Individuals can customize their experience with $10 extras like facial massage and treatments with Columbus-based hemp and honey products Cannuka. Customers will receive their facials in an open-concept environment set up like a nail salon or blowout bar.
“My goal is to provide a casual environment where clients can drop in for exceptional holistic skincare services,” says Owner Molly Bower.
Oasis Face Bar is Bower’s second skincare enterprise. She is also the founder of more traditional clinic Skin Oasis. When Bower started Skin Oasis five plus years ago, it was more reflective of the experience she was after: the relaxing, hour-long facial that my have relied more on chemical-based treatments. After growing her business and having her son, she had less time and become more cognizant of the products she was using on her skin.
“I wanted something quick but effective,” she says.
Skin Oasis had also reached a tipping point. It was time to either open a second location or try a new concept. She opted for the latter, heading Downtown for a younger, urban feel for Oasis Face Bar. Bower hopes to appeal to wide age range of women (and men) working Downtown.
“We want this market to understand that skincare doesn’t need to be some pampered luxury with a hefty price tag, and only available at the spa,” Bower says. “Skincare at Oasis Face Bar will be straightforward, affordable and a lifestyle that is easy to maintain.”
Oasis Face Bar will be open 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
