Magdalen’s Pure Skin Care is a Day Spa located in downtown Rockville Maryland next to Montgomery College. It was started in 2008 by a very passionate, licensed Esthetician, Magdalen Karugi Karanja. Magdalen grew up in Nairobi, Kenya. While she was growing up, she was fascinated by all things that enhanced skin beauty. She would experiment and make her own skincare masks from tropical fruit recipes that she found out about in the Kenyan newspaper, the Daily Nation. She would then convince her friends to try these masks.

Magdalen was amazing. This was only my second time being waxed EVER and she made it so pleasant. She is hilarious and speaks her mind, which I love. The waxing was done quickly and with MUCH less pain than the other place I went to. Her space is cute and smells amazing. She is now my go to for waxing (even though there are plenty of salons near me, I will drive further for her). I highly recommend her services.

The place smells nice and clean. Magdalen is hands down the best waxer ever. I was extremely... nervous before the appointment since it was my first time getting a Brazilian wax. I arrived and got to meet her right away. She was very kind and funny and she was talking to me the whole time I got waxed. It wasn’t that painful as I think it would be. The most important thing was that I felt really comfortable the whole time. Already booked another appointment and will definitely return back to her. Thank you Magdalen.read more

Magdalen was great! I’ve previously been to European wax centers where your skin is pulled, the... room is too cold, and they miss long hairs! Magdalen makes her waxing room incredibly calming and relaxing. It was amazing how fast the service was and how painless. I came in with shorter hair than is preferred but Magdalen got them all! She also makes her customers feel very welcomed and makes great conversation. I definitely recommend her service!read more
