Mojo Spa located in the heart of the trendy Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago is not just a company, but a family and our store isn’t just a location but truly an experience. After the success of her first product, Amanda continued to expand her skill set and improve her life by creating a makeup line that would not only cover her cystic acne but heal it as well. With a passion for product and a desire to help others, Amanda grew Mojo Spa to include a full makeup line as well as better yet affordable solutions for skincare, body care, and other products to help make everyone look and feel as great as she did!
Mojo Spa is still a company that lives in that magical world where beauty meets comfort and what is good for you can make you look and feel good. With over 350 individual products made in small batches; we use real fruits, vegetables, and herbs because what’s good for you on the inside is good for you on the outside too. Don’t confuse natural for minimal or boring, the addition of fun items such as donut, cupcake, cake, and macaroon soaps as well as deliciously scented scrubs and lotions make getting clean a pleasure instead of a chore.
We focus on solutions that work with the skin’s natural abilities instead of forcing the skin to do something it would not naturally do. This way you train your skin to behave in the best way possible without being dependent on a specific product. We’re not a typical beauty company as we take an all encompassing approach to beauty focusing on the emotional, psychological, and mental aspects of feeling good, not just the physical ones. We do this through the use of aromatherapy, crystals, vibrational energy, color therapy, and affirmations. From makeup and skincare to body care, perfume, and home goods Mojo Spa truly is where beauty meets comfort! Come get your Mojo on and feel the difference!
They call me the Willy Wonka of beauty! With my Oompa Loompas behind the scenes, we create beauty products in our magical world of Mojo Spa. My earliest memories are of me with my grandmother in Greece making natural remedies for everything from mosquito bites, to taming our frizzy curls, to stomach aches. This early exposure to nature gave me an understanding of how to use what the earth naturally offers to heal your skin and body which has stuck with me throughout my life. During my teen years I suffered from cystic acne and very dry lips. I tried numerous products from affordable to expensive but only found temporary solutions.
Drawing on my experiences with my Grandmother as well as research, classes, and mentorships, I was able to develop my first product called Make the Grade lip balm. I then developed healing makeup including Illuminata to treat my cystic acne. I am a huge fan of meditation & yoga and believe that in order to look good you have to feel good and that the body, mind, and spirit are all connected. With this in mind, I wanted to create a product line that would treat the whole person not just a specific part; this is why our mission statement is “Where Beauty Meets Comfort”.
I’m always trying to think outside of the box and develop new, natural and affordable products that keep you delighted so you come back for more. I truly believe that just because our products are good for you that doesn’t mean they need to be simple or minimalist. Therefore I create products like cupcake and cake soaps that delight in your senses to truly make you feel good inside and out!
