Facial on the Go

June 17, 2011

By Brianne Harrison Moore

Skin is the body’s largest organ. It protects us from the elements and, therefore, takes a heck of a beating on a regular basis. And yet, too many of us neglect it, or just slap on any old product, whether or not it’s the right one for our skin type.

That’s the sort of practice that Shalea Walker set out to change when she opened Walker’s Apothecary in Jersey City in 2004. Shalea, a licensed esthetician and makeup artist, wanted to create a place where each client receives truly personalized care, with treatments tailored specifically to their skin’s needs. Her services include facials, makeup application and lessons, indulgent manicures and pedicures, and even express services for those in a hurry.

More recently, Shalea has launched her own line of beauty products under the Walker’s Apothecary label. They include an enzyme peel, exfoliating cleanser, a moisturizing serum, and two masks that soothe and moisturize. Traveling? Just want to try the products out before buying full-size? There are two sets just for you: Walker’s Apothecary Facial to Go Travel Set ($65) and the Walker’s Apothecary Facial to Go Sample Set ($24). Both include the Marine Peel (renews skin by sweeping away dead cells while lifting impurities and stimulating circulation), Chammomile Soothing Gel (relieves irritation and redness), Green Coffee Moisture Masque (deeply moisturizes and replenishes skin), and Super Moisturizing Serum (protects and nourishes skin with high levels of antioxidants and concentrated botanicals), all contained in a convenient little zippered pouch with instructions. Perfect for air travel!

Walker’s skincare products are made from plant-based botanicals and are available for purchase online at or at the store, located at 68 Mercer St., Jersey City.
