Best Eyebrows I've ever had... – Ann at Ling has been waxing my eyebrows for over 5 years. I call her the Edward Scissorhands of eyebrows. She makes me look polished and perfect. Noone does it better. I HIGHLY recommend Ann at Ling!
Great Products and Services – I would reccomend Ling products and services to anyone with sensitive / acne prone skin. I've tried so many other products both over the counter and prescription and nothing works for me like the Ling products do. They are natural and gentle and you'll see results.
The facials are fantastic too!
Great service and results – I have only had two other facials (at two different spas) before my experience at Ling. Ling was easy to get to and the staff greeted me the second I walked in. I was offered tea/water and was led to a relaxation area as I waited for my aesthetician.
The room was on the small side, but very nice and clean. Carol introduced herself and asked me about my skincare routine. I changed into the silk robe (some said it was too hot/sweaty, but I was comfortable). As I was laying there she was examining my skin and she began pitching her recommendation. I'm no pro, but this had happened at both of my prior facials so I think it is pretty commonplace.
I was expecting to spend about $200 by the time I left, between my services and tip, I ended up spending about $325, but it was worth it. I got their Oxygen Facial (which I think is on sale) and the triple peel.
Carol was really great about explaining each step and I think she was very thorough. There were a few moments of excruciating pain during the extractions, but when I walked out I had very little redness and no swelling/sores/redness so she must have the correct technique.
On my way out she told me about all the products she used that day, an at home facial kit (as I told her I wait about a year between facials) and their daily product line. At this point I hadn't yet seen the final results, so I asked for some samples before I committed to buying the line.
A week later I had a big party to go to and I have never received so many compliments. My skin was glowing and radiant (definitely not the norm for me). I had scheduled another facial with Carol on April 14th (would have been 8 weeks later, and I had planned on canceling anyway), but I just called to reschedule for the end of March because I don't want my old skin to come back.
It is definitely a splurge, but it makes me look and feel great.
Great Products, but interesting experience w/Facial – The salon is super nice, the products are amazing! I bought a starter set because my skin felt so great! Where I'm struggling is the whole facial experience. I'm in the bed starting the experience and I went from a $125 customer to a $330 customer in the matter of one wash and a conversation...And the esthetician maybe was in the room for a total of 20 minutes... for a 2 hour facial. She would put on a mask and leave for 15 minutes, come back, put on another mask and leave for 10 minutes? I couldn't quite figure it out... the massage was not impressive and I truly go to a facial for the experience and relaxation as much as the products. I def will use the line... not so sure I would go back... when I told the front desk girl... she giggled and said, I'm so sorry your first experience was not that great... and I took my products and left... OK then...
great – Great place. I went there a few times for a facial. The atmosphere is soothing and relaxing; you cannot help but fall asleep. Facial are a pain, and everybody who has one, knows. I was helped by Mary. She was very nice. She was very gentle, or at least as gentle as she can be. When i had a facial from other other places, it hurt a lot more and the person administrating it .... could careless if i was in pain. The key here is detail. If you are considering coming here I would recommend Mary.
Certainly will recommand to everybody – Going to Ling Skincare is one of my every 2-week rountines since April 2008 when I needed some facial cleanings for my wedding in June. My boss told me about this place and recommanded Carol, who she has been seeing for over two years. I don't have big problem with my skin but they are really dry. I use their facial toner and lotion (Oxygen + Vitamin C cream) twice a day. Basic facial and hair waxing every two weeks, and I treat myself to their tripple-peel and IPL facial every 4 to 6 weeks. I like going there also because it's a nice and quiet place to soothe myself. Consider its convenience location and good pricing, I will recommand this place to everybody who deserve nice treats. Oh, there is a Farmer's Market at the corner of the street on Saturdays. I highly recommand you ask for Carol when you call. I think she has good hands. My sister-in-law, who I recommanded Carol to her, said so, which I won't be surprised ;-)
Happy Customer – My girlfriend, Cherry, is an esthetician at Ling Skincare. So I use their products and have had many of their treatments. As a result, my skin is in the best shape since pre-puberty. Before using Ling's products, I used Proactive for about 3 years. Proactive was the best over-the-counter acne treatment I ever used. It helped limit the break-outs, but there were a few things I didn't like about Proactive. One, it made my skin very sensitive to the sun and cold. And two, it bleached the collars of my clothes that came into contact with my face. For a period of time, I only brought white color clothes. Thank god I'm well connected, I know I can't afford Ling's products. If money is not an issue, you can't go wrong with this upscale establishment. Thanks for reading.
THE BEST OF THE BEST !!! – WHEN I WAS IN FOUR SEASONS HOTEL, AVIARA, CALIFORNIA. I WAS INTRODUCTED TO LINGS FACIAL AND PRODUCTS BY THEIR SPA STAFF. IT WORKS SO GREAT ON ME. I VISITED THIS LOCATION AND GOT MORE PRODUCTS SUPPLY. I ENJOYED THE BEST FACIAL AND MOST USEABLE PRODUCTS !!!
Excellent Place – the best skin care ever. i saw an immediate result from just one visit. Not only did i see an improvement in my skin but i was also educated into the right maintenance for it with an at home regimen that will keep my skin looking young. the atmosphere was friendly and comfortable. it was well worth the money.
The Best Service, Great Products, Excellent Results – I have been going to Ling Skincare for over a year now, my esthetician have been Cherry since my very first visit. She's very professional and friendly. I couldn't recommand her enough. She educated me on proper skincare and the importance of keeping my skin hydrated . Besides the great facial massages and treatments, I love the products, especially the moisturizers.
