In 2011, I wrote about M Steves gorgeous Rose Hip Seed Oil (RHSO) for skincare and anti-aging. Since then I’ve been using her organic skincare line on my skin. I’m still in love with the RSHO oil, but I also love the Purifying Cleanser which is sulfate free and smells like Oranges because it’s packed with nourishing Fruit Extracts. Now M Steves founder has opened an adorable “Beauty Cottage” in Venice, CA off Abbott Kinney to provide customers with facial treatments, eyebrow threading and other natural beauty products.

With 11,000 square feet including a sauna; aromatic steam room; Jacuzzi; and a comprehensive menu of massage, facial, hair, skin and nail services you can check into Chuan Spa and never want to leave. But the real reason to visit Chuan Spa isn’t the gorgeous surroundings and the high-tech beauty treatments. For me, the standout at Chuan are the services offered by the therapists at the spa.
