Truly A Remarkable Skin Care Line – I have been a devotee of Ling Skin Care from the first time I bought a bottle of the Purifying Facial Cleanser 5 years ago, on the recommendation of a friend. Every single product I've tried from the line has been outstanding and I never worry that I will have an adverse reaction.
They also provide exceptional customer care.
Best Facial Ever!!!! – I recently had a facial at Ling Skin Care and would completely recommend this spa! The convenient location made it easy for me to get too and the calming atmosphere was great! Considering this was my first facial I was a little apprehensive but found my esthetician sweet and very thorough. I have heard extractions could be pain full but found that mine didn?t hurt and I was able to walk out of the spa with no redness or pain. The best part of the facials here are the long term benefits. My skin has been glowing for the weeks. Through my research and comparison of other spas, the facials here are high of the highest quality!!! I would recommend this spa to anyone!
Less Pampering than Bliss, But Just as Good Results Plus Great Products – There's only one soft spot in my iron clad budget and that's for spas. And i am not one for pampering (although I love it) - I am more results oriented, so if I pay a ton of money, I want to come out with my skin looking flawless and healthy. I have been a patron of Bliss Spa in SoHo and 57th Street for over 5 years. Recently, Bliss increased its prices once again and it made me reconsider if my every 6 week facial there was getting a bit ridiculous (over $500 a visit as I also got microdermabrasion and other special add ons). Don't get me wrong - I love Bliss. But I thought it was only smart of me to find a new place that delivered the same results at a lower cost. Yes, I did not receive as much pampering. But the extractions were relatively painless and the triple peel mask was fantastic. I was skeptical when I left, but they gave me some free products and after over a week and a half my skin looks even better than when I left. I am *honestly* shocked. I spend a ton of money on skin products (SkinCeuticals, DDF, Dr. Sebagh, Mario Badescu etc.) and always have a hard time finding a regime that doesn't overdry or undermoisturize my 28 year old skin. Ling's face wash and toner is amazing. I bought small sample sizes and am now compelled to go back (much to my chagrin, as I was not very nice when I left....I was going through Bliss withdrawal). I am pleasantly surprised and so glad to find a new place. Yes, i am certain I will continue to go to Bliss twice a year for my pampering. But Ling is the next best thing and I actually like the products better. Next time I am just going to ask for an extra neck massage while the mask dries. Even with that, I'd probably still only end up paying around $300, which is a great bargain for how awesome my skin looks and feels. I would strongly recommend this place if you are results oriented. And ask for some samples - the Oxygen Plasma is divine.
the service was great! i just got my facial yesterday so i still yet to see the result. but i had such problem skin i'm not expecting immediate result.. anyhow, i had ann, and she was very sweet. she explain everything how i should do to improve my skin condition. she recommended what's the best service for me, it wasn't what i was planning to do so i rejected, and she's not pushy about it. when i left she gave me bunch of sample products for my skin type. she let me know what she's doing beforehand so i don't get any surprise bills. overall the service was great, staffs are attentive and the atmosphere is nice.
Only place I've ever had results! – I guess you could say I'm a skeptic when it comes to the beauty industry - I understand that its all about selling and pampering, and theres tons of things out there being sold as "skin care" but they don't do one thing! Having said that, I've been a product junkie for years - I have drawers full of things that are for dry skin and combination skin, but nothing has been able to fix my flakiness or beat my blemishes. That is of course until I started using Ling Skin Care and experiencing their facials! First off, the triple peel facial is amazing. It gets rid of all the flakes and the extractions are so thorough its like loosing 10 lbs from my face! Its not massage intensive and the extractions are a tad painful, but considering the results I'm more than willing to pay the price once a month! Its also nice knowing that the products they are using during the facial are their own and that nothing is a secret. I went ahead and bought the toner for dry and I treated myself to one of the o2 + c moisturizers and the combination was worth it. FINALLY - a facial and products that have made a visible difference in my skin! I highly recommend this place if you want results oriented treatments and products.
LING BEST FACIALS IN TOWN – I have been getting Ling facials since last year at Union Square and my skin has never looked better. I used to get alot of bumps and pimples, but now my skin looks flawless. The atmosphere is extremely relaxing and the estheticians are very caring. I also went there for my FIRST BIKINI WAX , the girl was quick and very reassuring and I left without any irritation-- considering what I had just gone through. I will definatley continue going back for facials and I MIGHT even try a BRAZILIAN ha ha .
Go and Try for yourself! – Since it was pouring outside, my girlfriend recommended that we go to get a facial at this place that she heard from a friend. THANK GOD! I have never had a more thorough facial before. Try the Ginseng Herbal Facial with Triple Phase Peel. It made my skin smooth and glowing when I looked at myself in the mirror. I think her name is Ann and my friend had Mary. Alittle expensive $202.80, but totally worth my face. I gotta be seen you know!
I'm A Guy's Guy and even I'M HOOKED! – So I had a friend pay for me to get my first facial there. Now I've never had bad skin, pretty smooth not many problems over the years. I had Maria when I went there....HER HAND WERE AMAZING, and the garbage she got out my skin, well that was Gross but either way I never knew I had so much congestion. She gave me a microdermabrasion with these fine salts sprayed on my face, then I got an rescue peal. I'm excited because I'm going back next week to get the famous Tripple Peal facial everyone is ranting about. If you go there ASK FOR MARIA!!!!! She's friendly and answered all the questions that I through at her. Even though I didn't pay for the facial I gave her a $50 tip because my skin is like a baby's bum right now.
Best Treatement In Town – I write for a fashion magazine that I'll not mention in this review (conflict of intersets) but I decided to try Ling's Spa after a bad experience I had at Bliss. My esthetician was Maria. She gave me their "tripple phase peal" and was very kind, professional, courteous and made me feel extremely comfortable. She put me on a very detailed and knowledgeable regimine for a wedding I had to attend in two weeks...I'll just say that I end up looking better than the bride. I highly recommend this place. Now only if I can get me editorial director to let me give them some page space.
my skin has never looked this good! – i've never had problem skin. . .that said, it's never been perfect either. carol is extremely knowledgeable -- during my first visit, she recommended a facial with a triple phase peel. she walked me through each phase of the facial, so i understood everything that she was doing. when i left, my skin looked amazing. it was glowing! and it's the same result every time i go. i finally i have the clear (close to) flawless skin i've wanted since i was a kid. thanks, carol!
