MIRROR WATER x Formula fig: A match made in self-care heaven

We’ve joined forces with Jessica Walsh, founder of Formula Fig to redefine the boundaries of beauty and wellness. With a shared dedication to nurturing yourself from every angle, our collaboration serves as a gentle reminder of the importance of slowing down, taking time out, and indulging in the transformative power of self-care.

Let’s hear from Jessica…

One of the unique touches you’ll find at Formula Fig is what you will see right when you walk in the door. The space fuses the best aspects of a sanctuary and a skincare haven, creating an environment where self-care reigns supreme.

We founded Formula Fig because we didn’t like the status quo. The destination we wanted simply didn’t exist, so we created it.

Think about it — if you want to go somewhere for all your ‘essential’ skincare needs, what are your options? You go to your dermatologist for injectables, med-spa for facials, and a skincare retailer for your products. Most of these places are uninspiring and intimidating. Getting an appointment is challenging and takes up too much of your day. Most of the time, these locations are located off the beaten track.

At Formula Fig, we change all of this. We combine a best-in-class skincare offering of high-tech facials, injectables, and skincare products. Fig locations are welcoming and inclusive spaces that transport you away from the world outside. All of our offerings are 45 mins or less, so you can head back to your day straight afterward.

Inside Formula Fig, the space exudes a sense of calm and sophistication. From the signature green colour palette to the meticulously curated product offerings, every detail is thoughtfully designed to create a serene atmosphere for guests to unwind and rejuvenate.

When you’re not admiring the shiny tiled walls and terrazzo flooring, steal away to the treatment rooms, complete with retro reclining chairs imported from Japan. Here, skilled aestheticians work their magic using high-quality products and innovative techniques.

Our words to live by are ‘give a fig’. We believe in creating thoughtful, immersive experiences that transform your everyday. We have four principles that guide everything we do, internally and externally: curiosity, communication, community, and consistency.

The collaboration with MIRROR WATER came about organically after Estée booked her first treatment at Formula Fig in Vancouver as a birthday treat.

“I had never heard of them and a quick Google search told me that this was the best place to go,” she says. “I saw the unique and impressive curation of products on their wall and knew MIRROR WATER had to be on those shelves. I can be slightly relentless and luckily on this occasion, it paid off. Working together has been a dream and I’m excited for this partnership to grow.” - Estée Lalonde

At Formula Fig, guests can now enjoy a curated selection of MIRROR WATER products, including the SMOOTH Body Oil and RUB Solid Balm. These products complement Formula Fig's immersive skincare experiences, extending the benefits beyond the facial treatments.

At the heart of both brands is a “dedication to nurturing yourself from every angle”. Formula Fig specialises in rejuvenating the skin, while MIRROR WATER focuses on promoting relaxation and self-reflection through bath and body care.

We love partnering with skincare brands who embrace a whole-self approach: the notion that caring for ourselves begins with the rituals we take the time for each day. MIRROR WATER offers a great assortment of skincare and body care products that our guests can bring home with them to complement their treatment routine.

It’s not uncommon for someone to book in for a facial because they’re feeling stressed or drained and just want someone to take care of them for an hour,” adds Estée. “That’s the same person who might benefit from the essential oils in our body oil for example. Something to carry on the relaxation at home between treatments.

In line with this holistic approach, Estée's personal journey and passion for wellness have shaped MIRROR WATER into a community-driven space that encourages mindfulness and balance. It's more than just products; it's about fostering a sense of wellbeing that extends beyond skincare routines.

Uniquely female-founded, owned, and operated, Formula Fig is powered by its deep beliefs in community, design, and service – helping all of its guests #GiveAFig about their skin. Book your treatment in Vancouver, Toronto, or Los Angeles via their website.
