​***Beauty Bar Rules & Regs***

***Due to the boutique setting of SKIN & TONIC, please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for your appointment.  I may be with another guest and unable to let you in until I am finished. I can't have you melting outside in the Florida sun.

***There is an emotional support pup on premises. His name is Odin and he's adorable. However, please let us know ahead of your arrival if you have any concerns and we will do our best to accommodate you.

***We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover & American Express. We also accept cash, kittens, baked goods and personal checks (from established clients).

***Please be advised that we service hundreds of clients and do our best to work with everyone regarding their appointment time. When you cancel/reschedule, that severely interrupts the level of service we are able to offer. Our request is that if you must cancel/reschedule, please do so before 6:00 pm on the day BEFORE your appointment in order to give us time to offer that availability to another client. If you cancel or reschedule after the 6 pm cutoff time, you will be invoiced for 50% of the service(s) you were scheduled for. If you do not show up for your appointment you will be invoiced for 100% of the services you were scheduled for.

***Be cool.



glamour is a state of mind.

Sometimes even extraordinary skill isn’t enough – some situations demand a dose (or 7) of glamour, which Valerie Johnson, owner of Skin & Tonic, delivers in spades.

Skin & Tonic is a gorgeous gem of a studio in Lakeland, Florida that delivers masterful brow design, a loving touch that could double as a bear hug, and a professional welcome that overflows with warmth.

Running a one woman show isn’t easy, (just ask any solo business woman), but the diva is in every detail at Skin & Tonic. For Valerie, preparation goes a long way – her successful path is paved with continuous education, reading every entrepreneurial book she can get her hands on and listening to what her clients want and need before making big decisions.

“You don’t succeed in this industry for almost 20 years without figuring out
what makes the clock tick. In my case, I’ve created what I believe is a perfect marriage of anticipating my clients needs before they know they exist, providing extreme relaxation and running an awesome Instagram account and fun facebook group page(SKIN and TONIC Boutique)!”

The future of professional skincare is constantly changing, but not without Valerie at its forefront. To date, she’s proven wrong the naysayers who claimed she couldn’t create a ‘real’ career or be taken seriously in esthetics, worked in premier luxury properties, built out her own independent storefront, and produces some of the most gorgeous natural brow design in central Florida. A passionate builder, she hasn’t met an unbeatable challenge to date.

“I have always strived to create lasting relationships with my clients by providing them with beyond excellent care, the very best treatments and of course a hug! I love my clients and I am so grateful for each one! Skin & Tonic is both a professional environment and a fun place to be. My hope is that you will feel you are in great hands with a specialist that will help you attain all of your skin and brow ambitions. Come, be my guest and enjoy the most amazing facials and brow artistry in Lakeland - our spa services are second to none!”

Make a reservation, it’s cocktail time somewhere.
