Luxury spa services that are convenient and utilize clean beauty products? Count us in! We discovered all of these qualities and much more during our last visit to the newly opened Burbank spa and salon, The Complexion Apothecary. No matter what the occasion is, The Complexion Apothecary is available to pamper you and make you leave feeling fresh and ready to take on the day. If you’ve been looking for a sign to take a self-care day, this is your sign. You deserve it!
Address: 4150 D Riverside Dr, Burbank, CA 91505
The Complexion Apothecary is truly a one-stop shop (or should I say spa?), and we are here to tell you why. For starters, we walked in and were greeted by the loveliest staff who were ready to give us the total experience. The whole team was passionate about clean beauty products mixed with conventional skin care treatments. Not only are the people super sweet, but to top it off, the space is just as chic and fabulous! It is a full salon and spa and may become your newest go-to spot for all of your beauty needs, offering an impressive array of services that make it hard to choose from because you will truly want them all. They are open Wednesday-Saturday from 10 AM – 5 PM, with extended hours until 7 PM on Thursdays and Fridays. Be sure to schedule an appointment and discover that fresh out-of-the-spa feeling that you have been dreaming of!

We opted for the 30 Minute Glow & Go Peel Facial from the friendly and knowledgeable aesthetician, Veronica. Before beginning our treatment, you fill out a form that gives your professional a better glimpse at what your skin needs and how they can best serve you towards your highly personalized and unique complexion and even skin goals. It was amazing just how relaxing 30 minutes felt, and because it is time effective, it’s a perfect experience during your work day or when you’re on the go.
Each step of the Glow & Go felt luxe and intentional, and Veronica explained the purpose of the Essential Toner, Brightening Peel, and Sublime Peel Off Mask. The products used were vegan and cruelty-free. After the service, our skin was left feeling shiny, rejuvenated, relaxed, and ready to face the world. In the lobby, they have many green and clean beauty products for purchase so that you can pamper your precious skin with the same care year-round. Our LA Girl faves are the Comfort Zone Sublime Skin Eye Cream and Sublime Skin Eye Patch.
For starters, parking is always our biggest concern when talking about new LA hotspots ready to go and explore. Lucky for us, this spa is extremely easy to park at, and they even offer free street parking. Also, The Complexion Apothecary has a beautifully clean bathroom that is actually post-worthy (you’ll see), so be sure to snap a few pics throughout your experience because it is oh-so-chic. To end your self-care day, check out Priscilla’s Coffee which is just a few steps away from the wonderfully located and convenient spa. An iced latte and a facial kinda day? Sounds like the best day ever!
Pro Tip: Go with a clean face! No need to apply any makeup or foundation beyond your normal SPF, as they start with a blank palette.
