Ones To Watch: Sweet Alchemy—Sugaring Hair Removal, Custom Skincare Treatments, & Airbrush Spray Tans

When Kat Wagner took over Sweet Alchemy in 2020, she had a vision to expand the business and bring the natural side to beauty enhancements to the Cincinnati area. And that she did.

Sweet Alchemy’s mission is rooted in the art of sugaring, an all natural way for hair removal. The sugar paste used is made of just sugar, lemon, and water. It is completely all natural, doesn’t grow bacteria, and tends to be less irritating than traditional wax. While it is similar to waxing in that it is pulled from the same direction, there can be less breakage because the sugar paste stays in the hand and is balled up for reuse. And like waxing, anything that can be waxed, can be sugared, and typically results last for four weeks.

Sweet Alchemy also offers clean lash lifting, tinting, and extensions. For those unfamiliar, a lash lift and tint will achieve the look of mascara without the wear. This process essentially perms the lashes to stay up and open to achieve a more awake look without wearing makeup. A lash lift and tint can last anywhere from six to eight weeks, which is the same as lamination, and Sweet Alchemy’s lash lift and tint product is vegan, as all of their products are clean and not tested on animals. There is also a new lash extension specialist on staff for those looking for that more impactful look.

Sweet Alchemy also offers an oil-based dermaplaning, which is less abrasive on the skin, as well as custom skin care facials. All facials are personalized and come in time blocks ranging from 20 to 110 minutes. There are also add ons options that include microcurrent, radio frequency, high frequency, LED masks, and Ice Globes, as well as facials tailored to teens, and a hydro facial designed to remove any impurities, debris, sebum, and dead skin cells while simultaneously depositing skin specific serums into the skin.

Finally, Sweet Alchemy offers a natural, sugar-based spray tan solution that is offered in a variety of different colors with different bases, which means spray tans can be tailored depending on underlying skin tones.

Ultimately, Sweet Alchemy is here to provide natural and clean products and services to treat and enhance beauty and skin care. Sweet Alchemy also offers a standing 20% off for all new clients and services, so if you are considering any service that Sweet Alchemy provides, make sure to seek them out and when you book, tell them #TheScoutGuide sent you!
