La Remede opens in West Town
A new French skin-care and waxing salon opens in West Town.
La Remede “I wanted to do a take on the pharmacies in France, where women stock up on great skin-care products that are not available here in the U.S.,” says Erin Stinson, owner of this new West Town waxing and skin-care boutique. That explains why you’ll find sought-after French lines such as Avibon and Homeoplasmine on the shelves of the shop and the professional French product line Pevonia for facials and body treatments. The spa also offers brow waxes, peels and makeup at the beauty bar, plus wine or bubbly to unwind. Less of a spontaneous walk-in type and more of a regular? Check out the membership program, which offers up to 25 percent off services. 1900 W Chicago Ave (312-265-0257).
