holliday packages are great deal! – I purchased a gift card for my mom after being referred to cosmo by a friend. I went with her a couple weeks ago on a weekday and we both had the girls day out package. I didnt know if it would be that spectacular being that it was only 130 and included a massage and facial. Cheap right? But the service was phenomenal. We each had a facial from bettie and a massage from sara. My skin looked refreshed and the massage was out of this world. I know usually with a deal that cheap you cant really expect much, but this definitely exceeded my expectations. I recommend Cosmo to anyone looking for quality and not just some fancy decor. The staff was incredibly personable and attentive to top it off. We will be coming back for christmas for sure.
I moved to Houston 2.5 years ago with a face full of long dark hair, very visible on my complexion. I had tried waxing, plucking, and tweezing and though there were no hairs on the surface it was evident I carried a female beard. My life, my confidence has really changed with electrolysis.
When I came here, I research different electrologysts in the Houston area. Maryam is board certified with 20+ years of experience and this was very important to me. If electrolysis goes wrong then patients can have holes in their skin or small pock marks/scars. What's the point in having your hair removed and then having another beauty problem -- which is far worse?
So in 2.5 years, my facial hair has been reduced in density by over 90%. I still go to Maryam once to twice a week to have the fine hairs that are not very visible removed, but shortly, I will cut back my visits as my hair growth declines even more. My facial hair problem, however, was far worse than most women. Electrolysis was an investment on my part for a permanent solution. I am happy with the results and my self confidence shows it.
Out of this World Facials - and very friendly staff – A friend of mine was getting married and we went here the day before to have a swedish massage and european facial and could not have been more pleased! We wanted to have the treatments together, but they didn't have couples accomodations but they arranged to have extra people there so we could have everything done at the same time.
The massages were really nice. I was unbelievably tense when I went in and she was really great at trying to work the aliens out of my shoulders. Her hands just felt to soft and tiny like a child's, but she really delivered the pressure where I needed it!
The facial - OMG! - I'm at the end of my 40-somethings and have spent way too many a day out in the sun. I was actually shocked when I saw my face when she was finished. No lie, I looked 10 years younger! I had her do the treatment that clears the pores and takes away the blackheads, and no lie, it hurt a little a few times. I was concerned that I would have red spots on my face, but all I had was this smooth, firm glowing skin when she was finished!
I couldn't afford to get all the products, but she (Betty!) was kind enough to recommend what should be my priority and I started with that, and no, it was not near the most expensive product. She was so dear and understanding and not pushy at all. Some how, some way, I am going to find a way to include Betty in my Budget every month.
I had read on here that the facials there were better than botox, and I totally agree!
Dissatisfied – DISSATISFIED! I visited this spa for eyebrow services and was absolutely dissatisfied with the results. I was pleased with my brow shape and size prior to Cosmo Day Spa, and made sure to ask for minimal hair removal and a simple “clean up”. Instead, the beautician created 2 completely different shapes on each brow (i.e. completely ASYMMETRIC). There was also too much hair removed from ALL sides of both eyebrows leaving them PENCIL THIN AND SHORTENED. More (i.e. approx 1 cm) was removed from the inside of my left eyebrow which makes the brow look very unnatural. That eyebrow essentially starts at my pupil! To top it off, the next morning I found multiple linear scratches along the inside of each eyebrow where she used the tweezers too aggressively.
Needles to say, I will not be returning.
Love, Love the Facials!! – I recently enjoyed a Hydradermie facial at Cosmo. I mean it when I say ENJOYED! This was the most fabulous facial that I have ever experienced and I have received many at various spas over the past 15 years. The treatment rooms were spotless and so very relaxing. Previously, I had recieved a European Deep Cleansing facial there that was absolutely awesome. That was the day that I met my favorite Aesthetician; Shammi. I have referred her specifically and the Hydradermie facial to many friends who since have become faithful clients as well. I try to go at least once a month. The Guinot products used at this spa are unbelievable. I own most of the line of the products 4 months after trying them. They are plant based and very natural. My days of attempting to find products that really make a difference in my skin are over! Shammi has a healing touch while conducting the facial. She explains each procedure and product but does so in such a way that I maintained my deep relaxation. She discussed my areas of concern with me and was most helpful. I have received several compliments about my skin since beginning my routine with Shammi. Even my husband thinks my skin glows! I am so happy that I found this spa and Shammi! My dermatologist also noticed that my skin was clearer and much more firm. I plan on giving facial gift certificates to my friends on special occasions because it is the best gift that I can give them.
Best Facials in Houston......better than botox!! – Cosmo Day Spa is the only place to go to for facials! Their aesthetician Shami is amazing. I go every month and I've seen significant improvement in my skin. I wish I could go every week it’s that good.
Shami uses a great skin care line called Rene Guinot, which I now swear by. I have recommended all my girl friends to go and they have also had really great experiences.
The facial is very relaxing and Shami really analyzes your face to see what treatments would work best for your skin and particular skin issues. I have had small blackheads on my nose that I thought I would always have to live with, but now their virtually gone just from the facial treatments and using the skin care line in between facials.
Also, if you have ever thought of getting Botox, go get a facial by Shami first. The facial is better for your skin, it fixes the problem areas of your face and you save a ton of money over doing Botox. Another plus is that even though I didn’t schedule it, Shami was able to do some eye brow waxing and tinting for me after my facial, which was great because it’s one stop shopping!! My boyfriend (who never does salon stuff) really wants to go too!
Overall, the best facial and salon experience I have ever had!! Trust me ladies, you definitely want to try the facials here!!!
Awesome Facials!! Ask for Wilma – I've been coming to see Wilma for facials for the last 10 months and she is always so sweet, knowledgeable and consistent. She has the best touch and she really caters to my needs. I love all the little extra things she does that other facialists don't. I highly recommend her to all my girlfriends!!
Fantastic Massage at an affordable price – I loved it! I had a wonderful massage and received wonderful service! I felt amazing afterwards and the price was exceptional! I highly recommend this spa to anyone who lives or works in the Galleria area. Plus, they are open later than most salons. I work in the Galleria area so it was nice to be able to find a place to get a massage at later in the evening.
Perfect Spa Gift – I recently purchased a gift certificate for my sister. It was actually a last minute gift, but it was a good save. She absolutely loved her gift. The gift certificate was for massage and facial. She was very appreciative that I bought her this gift certificate, especially since she’s always busy and rarely has time to pamper herself. She loved the facial because it cleared up the blackheads on her face. And the massage was just very relaxing; it was just what she needed to get her recharged. After her services where done, she came out looking fresher, younger, and completely relaxed.
My back pain still consist – I’ve never been to get massage before; it’s been a luxury that I really cannot afford as a student. But, I’ve had a big knot in my shoulder for the last month, which has been causing me some pain. I finally decided to take some of my savings to be able to pay for a massage that would help me. I scheduled an appointment for deep tissue massage since I guessed that Swedish massage would be way to soft for my problem.
I arrive to the spa and am told that the previous customer had been a bit late so my appointment would start five or ten minutes later. I ended up waiting 25 minutes before it was my turn (but sure, they gave me 10-15 minutes extra as compensation).
The massage therapist didn’t ask me why I was there or what problems I might have. She tells me that she will give me Swedish massage and some deep tissue massage. Mostly it was Swedish massage I got. She might be good at giving Swedish massages, but I don’t really know since I’ve never been to massage before, and also I wanted, and paid for, deep tissue massage.
My knot and my back pain still consist. The only thing that is reduced is my food budget for the coming months.
When I paid, the receptionist said that the massage therapist had told her that I wanted more deep tissue. So she told me that the next time that I would come (I’m sorry, but I really can’t afford a next time based on this experience), she would schedule an appointment with their male massage therapist since men have more strength and muscles to give deep tissue massage. But, what is the point of making a reservation for deep tissue massage if the massage therapist doesn’t have the strength to give it?
So, if you are looking for an effective deep tissue massage – go somewhere else.
Dear Ms. Kalle123,
We are sorry to hear that your back pain hasn't gone away. We apologize that the massage did not meet your expectations. We would like to invite you to return to the spa for a complimentary 1/2 hour massage with one of other massage therapists.
