Owner: Lisa Crosier
Why Bellingham? I moved to Bellingham in 1990 to go to Western Washington University and never left. It is a great place to have a small business. Our business was based on word of mouth and Bellingham is a great community to build a small business.
Favorite shop downtown? I love the antique stores downtown. I like to find interesting one-of-a-kind items. I also like to paint and redo old things to make them new again.
The DBP office is full of ladies, so it's no surprise we were excited when Lisa Crosier Skincare and Beauty Boutique opened up downtown this year. This new beauty spot is the ultimate one-stop shop for all skincare needs. "We specialize in clinical skincare and treatments including microdermabrasion, restorative, facials, and teen acne," said owner Lisa Crosier. "We love to talk skin and offer complimentary consultations."
They may be new to downtown, but Lisa has been in the skincare business for over two decades. "My salon was a studio out of my home when my kids were younger. Many think we are a new business but I have been around for a long time--23 years to be exact!" she said. With a desire to grow her business and clientele, Lisa moved from the outskirts of town to our commercial core. "I knew making the move to a bigger space was going to take a lot of time and energy so I kind of procrastinated and looked for a few years for the perfect space. We went from one treatment room and no break room to three treatment rooms and a break room!"
Besides skincare, waxing, and airbrush tanning, Lisa also sells bareMinerals makeup. The original shop in Bellingham to carry this line, she also has trained bareMinerals makeup artists on staff to answer questions, help you find the perfect shade, or even apply makeup for a special occasion.
Skin problems can be difficult for anyone to deal with, as it can seem overwhelming, frustrating, and even embarrassing. But the best part of Lisa's business is their genuine care for their customers to help everyone have their best skin. "There is nothing more rewarding than helping someone with their problem skin. Our passion is to help educate and teach. We will teach you new makeup techniques or ways to improve your skin with good home care," said Lisa. "We really believe that beauty begins on the inside and we can help everyone to look their best!"
Their business culture sums up their emphasis on the personal perfectly:
We appreciate every client who walks through our door--and we do our best to show it. We strive to give you reasons to come back, from making it easy to book your appointment and welcoming you with a friendly smile, to giving you the best esthetic services you've ever had. Our job is to make you look amazing and feel special--because to us, you are!
