Community Highlights: Meet Amber Johnson of Facial Lounge

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amber Johnson.

Hi Amber, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I developed a passion for skincare as a teenager struggling to maintain cystic acne. Wanting to find a cure, I experimented with my own homemade formulations using readily available ingredients before turning to professional medical facials. I used to get regular facials where the results were just fine and the process was extremely painful and the cost was high. I started working at a natural market and next door was a day spa where I encountered a more gentle approach than the routine medical facials I was receiving. This experience left me wondering about the more natural, relaxing side to healing where you can still obtain maximum results. This is when I started my decades-long journey into searching for the highest quality, most effective natural skincare methods. I studied products and ingredients and their synergistic effects with the gut microbiome, consulting with some of the biggest names in natural skincare like Zia, Weleda and Dr. Hauschka. Having never eaten meat, I am very against animal testing and the use of any ingredients harmful to skin or the planet. As a single mompreneur with two young sons, I care about their futures and the world they are going to be living in. With these morals in mind, I developed my own original product line, in addition to creating Facial Lounge where we perform custom, organic, vegan facials. Over the past two decades, my team and I have helped countless clients achieve their skin dreams using holistic methods, addressing issues from severe acne to signs of aging.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
In the beginning, it was hard for people to find me because there was no such thing as social media such as Yelp, Google Reviews, NextDoor, Facebook, or Instagram and seeing how much those tools help to get found, especially when you’re good at what you do. As social platforms began to grow, people were able to write their opinion about me. The first bad online review my business received was one that was out of my control, and I cried and from then, learned I could use these reviews as feedback and shape my business around people’s needs. Since then, negative reviews have been sparse. As every business owner knows, there are always going to be challenges that you face, the way you face them is head on and continuing down the road to success.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Most of us put everything we have into everyone around us. Facial Lounge is the place for those people to recharge and allow us to put into them. We believe that every client is unique so we not only give our clients the ability to relax while performing custom organic vegan facials but also provide them with retail nutritious, vegan skincare. Clients leave with better skin, completely relaxed, and ready to take on whatever is in front of them. Facial Lounge is where you come to have better skin and leave with a better life. We believe that what you use at home affects your health and skin. Facial Lounge provides top-shelf vegan skincare. We are known for our clean, vegan facials and skincare that are custom for each individual person and that provides proven results.

I am most proud of all of our amazing Google and Yelp reviews that have made us famous in the community. I am also proud of the changes I have made in not only customer’s skin but also confidence.

We are known for the best custom organic vegan facials with detailed extractions. Our skincare is results-driven without toxic and body-harming ingredients. Most skincare for anti-aging and dry skin cause acne and most anti-acne products age and dry out the skin. Facial Lounge products are both anti-aging and anti-acne. Facial Lounge loves to curate custom skincare routines and you can DM us questions through Instagram or use our online quiz tool to find out your perfect routine. We want people to be confident and happy in their skin. No matter what type of skin you have, Facial Lounge has something for you.

Do you have any advice for those just starting out?
Be patient. You will never know it all. Always be open to learning and don’t be a know-it-all. It is important to be open to feedback because this is the key to growing yourself and your business! And finally, if you don’t understand, ask questions! If you are super passionate about what you do and want to take not only your business but yourself to the next level, I suggest taking this life-changing course called Driven Leadership!


  • Facial Lounge believes that monthly facials are the key to anti-aging and anti-acne. We suggest that you come on or after your cycle. If you don’t have a cycle it is important to come every 28 days because it is important to keep your skin exfoliated. Our Monthly-Membership price is $125
