Discovered a Facial GEM in Santa Monica: Margaret @European Skin and Massage Studio

March 6, 2017


I recently met a wonderful aesthetician, Margaret Tomaszewicz, at a Red Carpet Secret Room Event  for the the Golden Globes. She works out of a cozy, no-frills studio in Santa Monica in one of those shared beauty space (Salon Republic) buildings – and wow, what a gem I discovered! Margaret is from Poland, the land of top-notch aestheticians. She’s been here for 30 years and trained under the best (Dr. Murad, Dermalogica and oversaw the treatments at Burke Williams for years). The vibe is very insider skin magician who knows her shit backwards and forwards. She looked at my skin, which had mysteriously become covered with blotch red spots over night and said, this is rosacea. NOOOOO!!! But she was right. It was exactly that. And she not only treated it accordingly with a facial but also sent me home with skin-care from Poland that she promised would clear it up in two weeks.

Now here is another amazing thing. Her treatments are so affordable you have no excuse not to go at least once a month. Take a look at them! Treatments 

I had the Red Carpet 24 Karat Gold Facial:

Used by Cleopatra every night, this facial will make you feel like royalty. This treatment will diminish your fine lines. reduce the appearance of sun damage, minimize pores, and restore the natural elasticity for more youthful glowing appearance. Gold also lighten’s the completion and prevents depletion of collagen. It will help you looking hydrating and glowing for any occasion. The Red Carpet 24 Karat Gold facial comes with exfoliation, deep cleansing, face neck and hand massage.

Margaret also sells a wonderful, natural, organic skin care line. After this facial she recommends you take home the Celebrity 24 Karat Gold mask to use in-between facial treatments.

It is available on website.

More about Margaret:

As a little girl in my native Poland, I learned to always use quality skincare to keep one’s skin supple and beautiful. I remember my grandmother using lemon juice on her skin to lighten her complexion, and washing our hair in chamomile tea. When I came to California, my first skincare salon experience was with Dr. Murad at the developmental stage of product creation, and I have worked on many different skin care product development teams at some of the best Salons in Los Angeles.

I was instrumental in the successful growth of the Day Spa industry by working at Burke Williams Spa and helping them develop their brand, and later their skin care line.

At my European Skin Care Studio, I am committed to helping all skin types, including dry, sensitive, mature, acne, and sun-damaged skin. I provide personalized European-style treatments, combined with the newest technology, such as LED lights, Microdermabrasion, Oxygen Treatment, Micro Current, and Ultrasonic Treatments. In addition, I am certified as an oncology aesthetician and a member of the International Society of Oncology Esthetics. In my studio, I provide affordable and complementary treatments to people living with cancer.

Utilizing all of my experience, I have created my own hydration-focused skincare line called WODA, which means, “water” in Polish. Practically every client I have worked with for the last 25 years has had severely dehydrated skin, which is the primary reason why their skin is not truly supple and as radiant as it could be.

WODA products are based on scientific research, promising to be of the best quality, using organic and natural ingredients to aid specific skincare needs.

My skin care products are for everybody. From dry and mature complexions, to sensitive and problematic skin. Woda is a result driven, affordable, and high-quality skin care line made without any artificial or harsh chemicals. I test all the products on myself, never on animals.

I believe in giving back as well as keeping our planet beautiful, so I am partnering with One Tree Planted. For every product sold in my Spa or online, the One Tree Planted plants a tree.
