I’ve been coming to The Apothecary for nearly 6 years. The best place to get bareminerals makeup and get an eyebrow wax on Aquidneck Island!

I drive an hour and a half to see Jenni Graham at the Apothecary. She is one of the most knowledgable estheticians in the field and an incredible woman that I respect and admire. The decor of the store couldn’t be described as anything but “Newport.” I highly reccommend the estheticians and I am a huge fan of the skincare line they carry! More...

I went here after a less positive experience elsewhere in town, and I am so glad I found Apothecary! The place smells amazing, I am so relaxed during my appointments, and the atmosphere is much more accepting and laid-back than the other one I've tried. I will continue to go here as long as I live in Newport, and am excited to explore more of their services and treatments. Highly recommended! More...

Visiting from NYC, and popped into the Apothecary for a last-minute wax I had neglected to get prior to leaving for vacation. I was super nervous to see someone new for such a personal service, but I was in great hands! Allie did a fantastic job; she was thorough, hygienic, gentle, and super sweet! I definitely recommend Apothecary, it's a beautiful storefront and the staff was great. More...

I've never looked better and my makeup and hair looks amazing in all my pictures. I went to the Apothecary on a recommendation after I did trials with 2 other makeup artists. Jenni listened to what I wanted and knew what I needed , she did an amazing job! Sara did an up do that was sophisticated but loose and stayed perfect all night. I highly recommended them to anyone looking for beauty in Newport. We also used them for a spray tan party 2 days before the wedding. It was a blast and the spray tan looked perfect. More...

I booked spa services for 12 ladies for my best friends bachelorette party this past April and everything was just perfect! I spoke with Mary ahead of time to plan everything out, and she handled all the details for timing and which services would be booked with whom.  She nailed every detail and made everything so perfect and easy to book! Everyone was super impressed with the look, cleanliness and friendliness of all the staff!! We felt like we were just hanging out with a bunch of longtime friends, who just also happened to be doing spa services for us :)The staff is extremely professional, knowledgeable, super kind and really fun to hang out with!! We were there for a total of 4 hours, so we were able to bring in snacks and champagne to celebrate. What a great experience! We all had so much fun and look forward to returning on future trips to Newport! Most of us did the mini facial treatment which was just pure heaven. So relaxing, our skin looked and felt wonderful, and the products the estheticians used were amazing. I highly recommend the Apothecary Spa, and can't wait to go back for another facial!!Thanks to everyone there who made my friends bachelorette party super relaxing and comfortable and memorable!

I got my makeup done by Ali for my wedding rehearsal dinner in Newport. I was so happy with the experience! I was feeling a bit stressed out when I arrived and the vibe was so relaxing. I was the only appointment at that time, and it was a great transition for the rest of my day.Ali is talented and their products were awesome. She used a lot of Bare Minerals which is in my daily routine. She made me look natural but an enhanced version of myself. I got so many compliments that night! It was a bit pricey, but I'm so happy that I made the choice to book at Apothecary for this special occasion.I would highly recommend her for your event! More...

Went here for the first time for a microdermabrasion facial. Very pleased. I haven't had a facial in probably 10 years and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. They offered a great introductory price and was worth every dollar. Allie was very professional and informative and the facial was relaxing and purifying . I have very sensitive skin and expected to break out the next day but my face looks and feels better than ever. Compliments on the service and products used. More...

My bridesmaids and I did the spray tan for my wedding and it looked AWESOME!  Such a difference having a real person do it than a spray booth!  I was so afraid of looking orange on my wedding day and it was just the opposite.  We all looked great! We got sprayed Wednesday afternoon using level 2, and my wedding was on Friday, and the tan looked really natural.  We did stink immediately afterwards, there's no avoiding that with any faux tan, but after showering on Thursday morning, we were good to go.  I will never use an automatic booth again after going to Apothecary.  The girls were super friendly and even though we were basically naked in front of strangers, they didn't make it weird, it was actually pretty fun.  Thank you!

This is really a lovely Newport boutique. It's kinda quirky though - not necessarily in a bad way - and not enough to stop me from coming back, but enough to require this tale to be told.My first Apothecary facial was back in 2013. The gal who worked with me was obviously hung over, not happy about being there that morning, and gave me an absolutely amazing pore popping, skin changing facial. Walked out of there feeling like a million bucks .. and that I'd just spent an hour with my worst frenemy.I returned for another facial last month and met with a different gal; very sweet, but provided the most unenthusiastic spa service I've ever received. Again - an absolutely fabulous facial, but left me lying on the table for 5 - 10 minutes at a time in between treatments. Get up off the chair and throw in some massage for crying out loud .. don't just let me lay there!Two fabulous facials, two totally bizarre experiences - I will be back! =) How can I not?! More...

I went here to get a brazilian wax and Megan did a phenomenal job. She was very good at cutting the awkwardness of being exposed and asked me questions about my self to break the ice. Also, the price is not bad considering what people charge normally.What ended up starting out as just an appointment to get a wax turned out to be way more than that. I had just moved here and was having a tough time with my living situation and finding a job, as I was here for grad school. Megan was so sweet and offered to keep an ear out if she heard of anyone hiring. That to me, was above and beyond. Just a wonderful place to go and the people there are as nice as they come. I would recommend anyone go there for anything! More...

I had the best experience getting hair and makeup done for a recent wedding. Jenny did my makeup and Sarah did my hair. They both did an excellent job at creating natural, formal looks on me and the rest of the bridal party. The entire bridal party had chic updos that differed slightly depending on each girl's preference. I felt beautiful and confident. Most importantly, the updos lasted through lots of dancing all night! Jenny is also super friendly and had a great playlist going while we were there. I would highly recommend Apothecary to anyone getting ready for a formal occasion in the Newport area! More...

The Apothecary provided the makeup and hair for me (the bride), the mother of the bride, and 6 bridesmaids. I can honestly say that we all looked our absolute best. I have never felt more beautiful. Jenni and Haley work wonders with makeup and Sara and Jessica made everyone's hair look amazing and the styles all lasted - even in the breeze on the water. They also did my hair and makeup for my engagement photos. We had our hair and makeup done at the bed and breakfast we were staying in, but I have also been to The Apothecary store and it is adorable and would be a great place to get ready for your wedding.

More than just the great work they all did, they all had great personalities and were fun to be around. I really think that they helped all of us stay relaxed and happy while we were getting ready.

I give The Apothecary the highest recommendation. You would be foolish not to use them for your Newport area wedding.

As the owner of a medical spa, I refer all my clients to The Apothecary for their overall knowledge, customer service and personal attention. I have people come in all the time that need help with application of makeup, finding the right makeup for their skin tone and general assistance with professional advice. This is the place to go! Love the Bare Essentials line that is all natural with sunscreen built in! Always up to date with the newest suggestions. You will find the staff helpful and knowledgeable and the experience a fun one! More...

Definitely the best place on Aquidneck Island for brazilian waxing in my opinion, and i have been all over. They do a great job with eyebrow shaping as well. I also love coming in here to shop, they carry really great lines and products and you can always find ncie stuff for gifts or for yourself. I appreciate the fact that they don't push the stuff that they sell on you though. Super nice staff and occasionally great sales! More...

I went yesterday for the first time. I get brazilians and upper leg waxes done fairly regularly and they did a great job! Little pain, the wax was very gentle and not too hot, and best of all the esthetician was freakin' awesome. She made me feel comfortable, was a good conversationalist and knew what she was doing. Super efficient and thorough. Unfortunately I'm leaving the area for a while and won't be able to take advantage of this wonderful spot, but I will definitely be a loyal customer when I return!!! I also really love the interior, it's really cute. The upstairs is nice, but space is definitely a premium. Also, the cost of the wax was much less expensive than the equivalent service in East Greenwich, which just makes me tip more! Awesome experience! More...

AMAZING! Jenni and her team were so professional and gave me and my bridesmaids the perfect look for my wedding day! I had a few trials with different artists but the reason I went with Jenni is I am very picky and wanted a stylist/makeup artist who had a ton of experience and would make me look like me, just a better version. I would recommend her and her team to anyone getting married in newport. They also have a spa which specializes in skincare so I was able to get a peel a few weeks before my wedding and an excellent spray tan a few days before. They won best spray tan from Rhode Island Monthly and I know exactly why! More...

I was on business for six weeks in Newport and in dire need to find a place for a wax.  I came here on yelp to find a place and I was so happy I did.  I went to their website and the prices were much more than reasonable for a brazilian and I gave them a call.  The shop was closed for a week while they moved locations but they took my appointment for the following Saturday.  I was greeted right away when I got there and walked into their beautiful botique style spa.  They had only been setting up for a week and it was already beautiful!  The wax room is quaint and comfortable and Ally was amazing!  This is the place to go to become a loyal customer or if you are just passing through and need a service one time.  Can't recommend enough.

I have been using Bare Minerals makeup for about 2 years now, but I have never been completely happy with the results. I ran out of my foundation this week and decided instead of going to Sephora where I usually  buy it, to try The Apothecary, since it is closer to me. I am so glad I did. The woman matched my color perfectly! I am so happy and finally feel like Bare Minerals is working for my skin. Not only was the staff very welcoming and helpful, but the inside was adorable. When I was in there there was someone waiting for a service and someone else leaving after having one done. I think I will be back sometime soon for a facial or a waxing service. I will definitely be returing to The Apothecary for all my makeup needs. Goodbye Sephora and years of wearing the wrong color makeup! More...

If you haven't experienced any of The Apothecary's fabulous services you are missing out. I go for regular facials and waxing (by far the best brazilian on the island) and have just come from having my first spray tan....I look awesome!...so even and natural looking. I would recommend this spa to anyone. They have also just started massage which is next on my list...I hear the new massuse, Liz is the best! Can't wait. Go! More...

I just moved up to Newport a couple of weeks ago and I'm going to be getting married in a couple more, which is why I decided that it was high time to get my first ever facial.  I did a lot of research into cost versus what you get and in Newport facials can run a bit high apparently.  I wasn't exactly sure what kind of facial to get so I figured I'd just go with whatever the aesthetician recommended for me (because obviously she'd know better than I would).  I was impressed that she recommended not the most expensive one on the list (the microdermabrasion)  which I thought would be something they'd for sure try to talk me into.  I'm 25 though so it's not like I have a ton of skin damage.  We went back into the little room and I thought it was nice.  There was calming music playing, candles, pretty fabric on the walls, and it was dimly lit.  Very spa-like.  I decided before we started to get a brow/lip wax as well and I really like that took the whole 60 minutes to do the facial.  She did the waxing around the 50 min mark after extractions, etc, but before the final calming face mask.  And since the waxing was in there, we finished at about an hour and ten minutes.  Very impressed.  Also, the waxing was not very painful at all.The only negative thing was that the next day, my upper lip has broken out in little zits, but my Mom assures me that that is usually the result of the facial pulling all the impurities out and that they should clear up in a few days.  Hopefully this'll mean all the "impurities" are going to be out for the wedding (fingers crossed!).All in all, I really liked the Apothecary.  I asked questions about my makeup and she gave me a bunch of good advice.  I said I wasn't happy with how my Bare Minerals was matching my face (I'd purchased a starter set a while ago from another business) and she suggested that I come in and get matched for another color when I run out of foundation.  I didn't feel like she was trying to force a bunch of product on me or sell me a bunch of stuff.  I'm going back later this week for my first ever spray tan too (I need to get rid of my farmers tan before the big day), so hopefully they'll do impressive work on this aspect too.  Wish me luck!

I went to The Apothecary for my first ever full brazilian.  I had called to make my appointment and bombarded the receptionist with a ton of questions.  I may have a slight case of OCD and some neurotic tendancies.  Plus, there was going to be a complete stranger looking at my lady goods!  Like I said, neurotic.  The receptionist was quite pleasant and made me feel very comfortable about my appointment.  On the day of my appointment, my waxer was very nice and pleasant.  She even chatted me up a little bit - but in the very comfortable way.  I have an issue with talking to hairdressers - it's always incredibly awkward for me.  I also have an issue with ingrown hairs thanks to my very sensitive skin.  They suggested a nice cream that I've been using since.  Smells pretty :) The wax came out amazing and I was quite pleased with the results.  nice and smooth, will definitely be returning!  If only I could afford the $50 every 3 weeks like they recommend.

I went there for a brazilian wax. It was a cute place with lots of makeup and facial products. The woman who waxed me did a great job, very thorough. I will go back for a brow wax next time. It has only street parking, which when off-season was fine- I am not sure how it will get in the summer More...

The Apothecary is located in a cute little shop in downtown Newport.  I had a facial and wax with Jessica.  Both were excellent.  The wax was one of the better waxes I've ever had.  Jessica really knows what she is doing, and it shows.  (Also, she's very nice and fun to talk to!)  She uses a combination of hard wax (no strip) and a pink strip wax for the Brazilian.  The result was immaculate, and one of the best and least painful waxes I've ever had (though it wasn't one of the quickest -- fine with me! I'll choose comfort and thoroughness over speed any day) -- and I've been getting this treatment for seven years now, so I've seen many different estheticians and had lots of experience, from terrible to great.The facial was a hydrating facial (my skin is quite dry), and it was the kind of facial where you walk out glowing, as opposed to red and blotchy.  My skin feels so smooth now and looks fabulous.  I will definitely be coming back and asking for Jessica.  Apparently she also does make up and is great at it.  I would love to give that a try, too.

In my opinion The Apothecary Newport is by far the best place to get waxed on Aquidneck Island. I would go no where else now! Prices are reasonable, all the staff are professional and friendly and the service they provide is exceptional. Book early though as they fill out quickly and only have one treatment room. More...

This is a great little boutique, friendly relaxing atmosphere. Great makeup artists using i.d.bareMinerals and their services (waxing and facials) are conducted in a very professional but realxing way. They have some great skincare lines that really work. I really love this place and the people in it.....a great addition to Newport :) More...

They have the most adorable treatment room where I received the best waxing I have ever had and I fell asleep during my facial which speaks for itself. Great owners and staff. Highly recommended from me!! More...

My girlfriend had her makeup done here for her wedding this summer which was flawless...the ONLY make up to use for your wedding by the way! This really is a gorgeous boutique, they do a fantastic wax job and great facials and carry lots of other great lines and goodies. The staff and owners are friendly and knowledgable and is a great place to buy a gift...even for the husband!! More...

AMAZING. I am so glad that John, the owner, contacted me, and that I gave this place a second chance. Sara was my waxer, and I am positive that I will continue to be slavishly loyal to her in the future. She only works on Mondays, folks, so make sure you make an appointment.  Believe me, you will be kissing the ground she walks on. She, and John, for that matter, was polite, personable, extremely fun, a good conversationalist who took my mind off the awkwardness of having my hooha out there in front of a complete stranger. In addition, the entire matter was fantastically quick, absolutely meticulous, and relatively painless. She was also really cool and helpful regarding my piercing, something that some waxers have been openly judgemental of or kind of unsure of how to handle it.   Yes, I said it. A nearly painless but perfect brazilian. You're about to make that appointment, aren't you? Although this particular waxing was gratis, the normal price for an "extreme bikini" is more than reasonable.  They also have a great selection of makeup (bareminerals- my fave foundation, and I'll go there when I run out of my current stash) and skin care products.GO. Now! More...
