Freshfields Village, located at the crossroads of Kiawah and Seabrook Islands, expands its wellness and beauty offerings with the addition of Studio 33 and Bluemercury this summer.
Studio 33 occupies a 1,453-square-foot space located at 209 Farm Lake View, while Bluemercury will be located at 600 Freshfields Drive in a 2,156-square-foot space.
Studio 33, owned by Frank and Liz Silva, offers a range of exercise classes including yoga, pilates, barre and other private and group fitness activities. The studio also boasts a retail space, offering ‘athleisure’ wear versatile enough for everything from your Studio 33 classes to your daily errands. The team is excited to provide a new fitness space for the Freshfields Village community, and they look forward to complementing the existing wellness offerings in the Village. More information can be found on the studio’s website at studio33kiawah.com.
Bluemercury, a cosmetics and spa retailer, will bring a curated selection of high quality, innovative beauty products to Freshfields Village. Shoppers will enjoy expert advice and deep product knowledge from their team of beauty experts to find the perfect item for their individual beauty needs. The store will include longtime Bluemercury favorites such as La Mer, Darphin, Kiehl’s, along with new brands Chantecaille, Living Proof, RMS Beauty, and Soleil Toujours. The Kiawah location will house Bluemercury’s proprietary brands, M-61 Skincare and Lune + Aster Beauty, exclusively carried at Bluemercury locations. In addition to retail, clients can be pampered at their in-house spa, home to results-oriented treatments including the Oprah approved Oxygen Facials, glycolic peels, and waxing services. This is the company’s second location in the area — the first is located on King Street in downtown Charleston.
“With these newest additions, Freshfields Village looks forward to creating more robust wellness and beauty offerings for our visitors,” says Julie Beier, general manager for Freshfields Village.
Studio 33, the first fitness studio in the Village, and Bluemercury will join current wellness and beauty tenants DermaMedical Aesthetics, Urban Nirvana Hair & Spa and Kiawah Nail Studio. Derma Medical Aesthetics offers medical services such as injections, microdermabrasion and chemical peels, along with permanent cosmetic solutions, lash extensions and acupuncture. Urban Nirvana Hair & Spa offers a full service salon with haircut, color and waxing services, and a day spa where guests can indulge in massages, facials and more.
