Results-driven treatments are not typically relaxing – they can even be a little painful! Our main goal with the inception of Essentials Beauty Lounge was to ensure every moment of your spa experience be both relaxing and effective. We created the spa in a beautiful location to achieve a sense of serenity.

We also want our clients to feel comfortable in their skin. Every client deserves a personalized treatment plan based on their skin type and concerns. To provide the most effective treatment plans, we only select exclusive, evidence-informed, and eco-friendly equipment and products.

We will help you feel beautiful, confident, and comfortable in your skin by sharing our skincare knowledge and providing you luxurious, results-driven treatments.

Meet KristieKristie

Kristie, owner and operator, has been an esthetician since 2003. In 2005, she opened Cranberries Spa on Robson Street in Vancouver. She moved back to her hometown of Penticton in 2011 to be closer to her family and start one of her own. Kristie now has three beautiful children, Zoe, Everet, and Amelia, and a loving husband, Jonny. When she is not working, Kristie enjoys playing with her kids, running, experimenting in the kitchen, reading, and spending quality time with friends.

Skincare has always been her passion. With the advancement of laser and medi-esthetic treatments, she found it impossible not to focus her business on providing her clients with effective treatment solutions. Kristie is committed to educating herself, spa staff, and clients on the latest research and trends in the skincare industry.

 

Meet KayKay

Kay’s passion for all things esthetic came from growing up in her mom’s esthetics studio in the prairies. Witnessing how the services resulted in a confidence boost for the clients is just one of the reasons why she loves the industry. When Kay is not educating and treating clients at the spa she can be found tenderly caring for her plant babies, enjoying stunning mountain views of BC, and discovering local cuisine.
