Best skin care experience EVER – My recent facial from Marion Simms of Skin Sense was beyond any skin care experience I've had before. And after several years of battling my skin, I've experienced quite a bit! I've seen some of the most well known dermatologists and estheticians in LA and not one compares to the level of service, expertise and care I received from Marion.
Marion's knowledge of skin, products, treatment approaches and wellness in general is unparalleled as far I'm concerned. I left her spa not only with a visible "glow" on my face, but feeling a glow inside because Marion has truly given me hope that I can indeed achieve beautiful skin.
The added bonus of my experience was that the moment I walked through the door I was greeted with warmth and kindness from the staff. There's not an ounce of attitude to be had in the place and the facility is cozy, clean and professional. Without a doubt, I will be returning.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Marion!
Wow - well, thank-you and come back soon. We really appreciate you taking the time to give us such a glowing review!
Great Massage – I was referred to Joanne at Skin Sense for a massage, and it was the most relaxing massage I've ever experienced. She was so polite, so professional, and has magical hands. I was completely rejuvenated and revived. I have been back several times and each time is an amazing experience. I am a hairdresser and on my feet all day so I really need a massage therapist who can meet all my physical healing needs and Joanne is just the one to get your body just like new. I am hooked on this treatment and will be a forever client of Joanne. I highly recommend Joanne to anyone who loves to be treated like royalty and needs TLC.
It is always a true compliment when we receive a great recommendation like this one from a fellow professional - thank-you!
Really Great Experience! – My wife had a facial with Marrion and said that she loved it! She gets them every few weeks, and she said that she's for sure going to back to SkinSense again... I stopped into the spa myself just to check it out, and it seems warm and friendly, and the free tea was yummy too!
You know - that cuppa makes all the difference! Thanks for the great review. We'll have the kettle ready on your next visit.
Floated out of the spa . . . – OK . . . I'll admit it . . . it was my very first facial ever, so maybe I don't have grounds for comparison. What I do know is that no massage, no acupuncture, no hypnotherapy session has ever made me feel more relaxed, more nurtured, more alive, or more euphoric than the AMAZING facial that Marion (the owner of more than 20 years now) provided for me. I also attended one of their aromatherapy seminars, and it's just obvious that Marion attracts the most amazing people as staff members and presenters. Just delightful. You deserve the treat . . . so go.
Thank-you so much for such a great review. We are happy that your first facial experience was a positive one and we hope you will come back for many more!
The Best! – When I moved to LA 17 years ago, I asked someone where I should get a facial, & was steered to the right place: Skin Sense. Nancee has been my mainstay ever since. I had my first-ever mani-pedi w/Marla (I don't like people touching my feet...) & now am a regular (& trust me, my feet look A LOT cuter than they used to!). Vicki gives a gentle & thorough wax. Kathryn at the front desk is a total doll & makes the best cuppa tea outside of Ireland. And Marion is a lovely businesswoman -- she is always friendly, generous, accommodating. Skin Sense is like a family, they remember my kids' names, are funny, sweet, and do a superb job at taking care of my skin & my bod & my self. A rare experience, and full-on recommended. Thank you, ladies!
What a lovely review. Those cuppas work all kinds of magic and we like to be thought of as a family. Thank-you.
A great break from the week. – I have had the opportunity to get a massage, a facial and even a pedicure at Skin Sense and would recommend their service to anyone looking for a break from the regular grind of Los Angeles. I have since learned that most of the staff have been there a long time which speaks volumes to me as to the atmosphere they have created. I highly recommend Skin Sense.
Yes, they call us the Cheers of skin care! Thank-you for the great review - we really appreciate it.
Fantastic Facials! – My only expperience having a facial was at a fancy shmancy Beverly Hills storefront spa that a client gave me as a gift and it was not anything special. That is NOT the case at Skin Sense. I just got a facial by its owner, Marion Simms and had a truly wonderful experience. She guides you through the entire facial with her calm soothing British voice and really explains what she does and why she does it. Her lavender hued spa is a great place to spend an hour or two of your hectic schedule and you'll look and feel great after.
Thank-you for noticing the lavender touches as well as for the lovely review. We are absolute junkies for all things lavender!
The most luxurious facial ever! – The service and treatment is excellent! Marion is extremely knowledgeable and experienced and I felt that my skin was getting the best care and products ever! I highly recommend it! It is not just a wonderful experience. You leave feeling like you've just had an expert treat your skin with the best care!
Thank-you so much for a great review. Come back and we will do a repeat performance!!
Get Rejuvenated Here – I had the pleasure of having my first facial experience with Marion Simms at Skin Sense and it was amazing.
The facilities are top-notch and the service is exquisite. From the moment I walked in the door, I felt right at home. The treatment itself was wonderful. I didn't know what to expect, but Marion walked me through the entire process and made it a wonderful experience. When I left, I was in such a relaxed state, that I just wanted to get home and curl up with a good book.
I've had a couple more treatments since then and the service has been consistently terrific. I highly recommend getting to Skin Sense to start the year off right.
We appreciate such high praise and look forward to seeing you again soon.
best, smoothest, least painful brazilian wax you'll ever have – So, I spent about the last year or so getting brazilian waxes at Pink Cheeks, after a friend recommended it for their ability to get you in and out in 5 minutes flat. I continued to go there only because of the speed at which the unpleasant experience was over with. Never mind the fact that they don't wear gloves, and they use strip wax on the most sensitive area of your body which rips out skin and hair alike. Well, then a friend recommended trying Skin Sense and so I did. All I can say is that I am extremely disappointed I didn't know about this place sooner! I can honestly say that Vicki actually made the experience a positive one. The spa was extremely clean and the atmosphere relaxing and comfortable, she wore gloves, and she used a special sugar wax that is peeled off instead of ripped off, thus only taking out hair (not skin) which is the kind of wax that should be used on that area of your body. Being a person with sensitive skin, this kind of waxing left my skin smooth and barely red at all. It hurt about a thousand times less than Pink Cheeks method did, and when I left I didn't even feel like anything had been done, that's how much less painful it is. I recommend this place to first timers and also to people who have been doing it for years-- you will be very pleased with the results.
Thank-you for a great review, always appreciated. The wax is actually a hard wax containing azulene, a soothing plant extract. Great for sensitive skin and areas of the body.
