Pamper yourself with a good value – I've been getting microdermabrasion facials with Lillian at Joean for the past 5 months now. At first, my skin was dull with large pores. After going for 5 months, my facial complexion is a lot more clear with with a pink glow.
I feel pampered when I walk into the salon. In addition to microdermabrasion, I get a nice facial and upper body massage, brow trim, extractions, and soothing mask in 1.5 hrs time. I emerge refreshed.
I just signed up for my second package of 6 facials for the price of one and can't wait for my next appointment!
Great Value – Great value for what you are getting. Joean gives an excellent, relaxing facial. The downside is that the quarters are a bit cramped and if there are many people getting facials someone could literally be right next to you with only a curtain in between. The technicans are very good at what they do, however, they really push on having buy a series of 6 facials in advance.
Sometimes a bargain is anything but. – The Services
While Joean boasts that its $35 facials are the "best deal in town," the spa's questionable cleanliness makes it hard to recommend a visit. Waxing, skin care, mani/pedis and massage are on the menu at bargain-basement prices, but myriad spas offer comparably-priced services in environments that won't have you running home for a shower. And the three-table treatment room is odd, at best.
At the sole manicure table, we were surprised to find that tools were not pulled from a sterilizer. (The defense was a frightening "We rub them with alcohol.") The polishes--a mish-mash of brands stuffed in a cookie tin, with oily, separated consistencies--are equally unappetizing. The only diversion is a collection of Guinot and Clarins products sharing space with bizarre items like nipple pigment reduction cream and ultrasonic beauty wands.
