Our Space

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who joined us for our launch party last Thursday! We had such a blast with old friends and new and were completely overwhelmed by how many people came! We are so encouraged and thankful for all of the support we have received from our friends, family, and our new community here in Surrey Center. We wanted to give a shout out to Charleston Street, the Bloom Closet, the Coffee Geek, Takosushi, Oxygen and Big Day Cakes for our flowers, coffee, and yummy treats! 

We wanted to share with you our little photoshoot of the space so you can have a little glimpse inside if you weren't able to make it! A huge thank you to Becky from Casto Photography for capturing such amazing photos of what we get to experience everyday. 

Welcome to Cucumber & Mint!

Hello! 

We cannot tell you how excited we are to FINALLY share with you all what our little secret has been! YES, we are opening a skin & beauty studio in beautiful Surrey Center! What is a skin & beauty studio, you ask? Well, we are basically a "spa" without being too "spa-y". We wanted to create a space that would be a place that you felt cozy in... would want to sit with a cup of coffee, prop up your legs, and read a book in. We also created a menu of services which cater to each individual and their specific needs. We offer one facial, one massage. We do this to simplify things a bit. We want to treat your skin the way YOUR skin needs to be treated. We want to massage you the way that YOU want to be massaged. We will have a consultation with you before each service so that we know what you are needing, what your preferences are, and what you are wanting to gain with each service. 

Cucumber & Mint is also the PLACE to come when getting married and needing a little pampering before the wedding  as well as the wedding day. We offer airbrush makeup and hairstyling for the bride and the whole bridal party. You have the option of us coming to you or you can come to us as our space is set up specifically for bridal parties to come, unwind, have a mimosa ( or two ) and get pretty all at the same time!

Follow us on social media and stay tuned to all of the fun things that we will be working on!
