About The Darling Den

Sara May Baumgartner - Owner and Esthetician 

Sara had been waiting for the perfect moment to bring her vision to life. 
And here she is, with hers truly: The Darling Den. 
A place to have personalized skin and body services in a nurturing setting. This project was originally going to take place in her home away from home, Venice, CA. But her love for family, and a growing family of her own, cleared the path to find her way back to her real hometown here in St. Paul. 
Sara gained an immense amount of knowledge on her 20-year journey in skincare and now she gets to blend all her favorite things into her very own shop. Sara is grateful for the experience and guidance she gained along the way, working for some of the best of the best in the business, including Damone Roberts in Beverly Hills and the Four Seasons Los Angeles in Beverly Hills. She has appeared on numerous talk shows and publications including E!, Entertainment Tonight, The Doctors, and many more.
But all that aside, one of the things she values the most is creating a space that feels inclusive, private, and safe. She understands that insecurities can arise with certain services and it is her mission to make you feel at ease, in a setting that will always be comfortable. 
And so it begins... The Darling Den... a place of acceptance, peace, and glowy, dewy, healthy skin.
