Up Close & Personal with Our Local Spa Partners

Loving everything local here in our beautiful province is even more important to all of us after our epic snow storm this month. Pulling together to support each other is what we do here on a personal level, but it is now so nice to see everyone reaching out to help local businesses thrive. We want to thank everyone for being so supportive to local businesses. Today we want to focus on our Spa Center Spotlight wholesale customer Leah Stares of LJS Esthetics located in Gander NL.

This blog series has been in the making since early Fall 2019, I want to personally thank Leah Stares for her input and her loyalty to local. Leah was one of my Esthetic students at College of the North Atlantic in Gander in 2010. It is so gratifying to see one of my graduates and friend live her best life. She always excelled in school and now in her business, LJS Esthetics. Here is her biography she shared with us and images of Leah with her family and her spa :-)


"Leah Jane Stares born and raised in Port aux Basques, NL now resides with her  family in Gander, NL where she is the owner and Esthetician at LJS Esthetics. She has been a certified esthetician since July 2010 and after working 8 years at a local spa decided it was time to go out on her own. Her welcoming spa is located on Armstrong Blvd, she co-shares the space with a local massage therapist. She has a full day spa menu, providing those spa services we all love! Facials, manicures, pedicures, waxing...
Introduced to Indigena skin care in her first year as an esthetician, it was her first pick for a skin care line at her own spa. Dealing with highly sensitive skin and allergies while performing a service on a client doesn't make her job very easy, but Indigena has given her a product that allows her to be comfortable with not only what she puts on the clients skin but her own! "
You can find Leah's business on Facebook at
Please reach out and show her that wonderful Newfoundland Love by liking and sharing her business on Facebook. You can share this blog post to help promote both our businesses #womensupportingwomen . Every little bit helps entrepreneurs flourish here on the Rock! If you have had spa services at LJS what was your favourite?
We'll be featuring an Indigena wholesaler every month here on our blog in 2020 once a month. Stay tuned to fall in love with retailers all over our province and country :-) 
xoxo Lisa

    I have had many services from Leah at LJS Esthetics! From pedicures, to facials, lash lift, and eyebrow waxings galore!! Leah and I have been long time friends, went to Esthetics school together, and have supported each other in business for many years now. Leah is an amazing Esthetician, she’s gives you a real treatment, not just a service!
