I had a facial here done back in May and it was the best experience. Ive never actually had any services done here and also never had a facial done but despite all that the student made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. The instructor that came over for the consultation was super professional and it was clear that the student knew exactly what she was doing. It was all very professional and i left feeling so relaxed and rejuvenated. Best experience possible i literally could not think of a thing i could nitpick on. Definitely looking forward to when i can go again :)
