Testimonials

5/5

This place is truly a hidden jewel in the heart of Laguna Beach. They have THE BEST massages, treatments & facials at a very fair price! If you want an intimate place to relax, I highly recommend Skinterest. If you get a massage, get the “A Much Kneaded Massage” 90 minutes & ask for Jason!

Beautiful experience. The facial left my skin feeling silky and refreshed. And, as always, it was delivered with excellent care.

5/5

I’ve been coming here for over a year for my skin. Started coming here a few months before my wedding. My face was a mess and Yvonne and Sienna helped me get my skin under control in time for my wedding. Now I’m a devoted client and recommend Skinterest to all my family and friends. Highly recommend this place to anyone that’s willing to invest in good skincare with knowledgeable people they can trust.

Just a few words about Skinterest and masseuse, Lisa. I had a wonderful experience from reservation to actual massage. Lisa, the masseuse, was amazing. Probably the best massage I have ever had; strong hands, not chatty (some masseuses are and it’s hard to relax) and very competent.

Treat yourself and make a visit!

Siena is absolutely wonderful. She provided me with the best facial I have ever had. Siena takes the time to make you feel comfortable and is so kind. If your looking for amazing skin care visit Siena at Skinterest! Thank you so much Siena!

5/5

It was my first time visiting Skinterest and even my very first facial. I had such a lovely and relaxing time and walked out feeling so refreshed. When my family visits Laguna again, I am most definitely coming back in for another treatment!

5/5

I got this for my girlfriend, she had Lisa and Siena and was overly impressed with the service, atmosphere and the personal connection. I highly recommend this place, we are definitely coming back!

In researching different options to get rid of cellulite, I came across vacuodermie. It is not very common here in the states, but is more so in Europe. People were reporting great results, so I thought it time to give it a shot.

I called to inquire about their services and process, and spoke with Yvonne. She was very helpful and patient, as I asked a lot of questions. After doing extensive research on vacuodermie vs. endomologie, I decided to give vacuodermie a shot.

I was shocked at the results. I lost a little over 1/2″ after the FIRST session! I decided to buy a series of 7, and I’ve had 4 treatments so far. Everyone has noticed a significant difference, even my husband who was skeptical at first. I am truly happy with the results thus far. I feel comfortable in my own skin again. Thank you Yvonne!!!!

My friend & I came to Laguna for a girls’ getaway week and came to Skinterest on the recommendation of TripAdvisor & Yelp. Boy, were they right! Yvonne gives a fabulous facial and knows just what products to use on mature women’s skin. Her waiting area is very clean & modern but also very Zen, which I especially appreciated and enjoyed as we booked consecutive appointments. We’ll be back for sure!

5/5

The relaxing massage started with some tea and sweetened almonds. The massage and facial was amazing! Very relaxing and well priced. Yvonne, the owner, has many years of experience and can assess skin type. She is very friendly and extremely accommodating. All very well priced! I will definitely make the effort to drive an hour to this little gem of a place for another treatment!!

Just had an excellent silk peel w Yvonne. First time client and will definitely return for more!

4/5

Walked into Skinterest with sunburnt, blotchy, aging skin and left feeling like…well, like I had a hint of the lovely skin of many years ago. Really got a terrific facial in the most relaxing of experiences. And my esthetician was so clearly in the know about truly caring for your skin on a daily basis. My only complaint is that expensive products were pushed within 5 minutes of beginning our session until we left. I certainly need good products, but I felt a bit bombarded by the sales pitch throughout. Scale back on the product push and Skinterest would get 5 stars from me.

5/5

I have been here twice for two facials and a hot stone massage and I love everything from the space (which is tranquil and quiet) to the wonderful staff and of course their services are excellent. My skin always looks amazing after one of their specially formulated facials and I have already recommend them to a few of my friends. This will be definitely be my monthly splurge on myself in the future! Thank you Yvonne and Staff

5/5

Yvonne and Sienna at Skinterest turned my skin from dry, dehydrated, and prematurely aging to hydrated and glowing for my wedding. Both Yvonne (owner) and Sienna (her daughter) are
wonderful women, and unbelievably talented aestheticians. They are incredibly up to date with the best products for reasonable prices. The spa is very comfortable and welcoming… treat yourself to a wonderful experience at Skinterest – you will not regret it.

After searching for lymphatic massage I found skinterest wellness spa. I met with Yvonne the owner who is extremely professional, has an extensive training background and has the most gorgeous skin ever! She has given me three lymphatic massages and reduced my post swelling to zero and we also added a lymphatic treatment to my legs at the same time..amazing treatment and results!

5/5

Okay at first I was skeptical because all the reviews on here had 5 stars but I must say this place is the real deal. Yvonne is great! Her spa and herself have such an amazing energy I 100% recommend this place. I had the vacuodermie done to my body and I felt really great afterwords. I was also super smooth and my skin looks even no bumps and after my first appointment. Just speaking to her you can clearly understand she loves what she does and has a knowledge of skin care that is super impressive. I felt like I was in such great hands and I’m excited to go back and get a facial and speak with Yvonne again haha, thank you!

5/5

I happened in here based on Yelp reviews when I had a friend in town. I’m 49 and have been getting facials since my 20s, in S. Florida and NYC. Yvonne’s was among the very best. Her approach is very personalized. She is extremely honest and skilled. She made product suggestions but no pressure. The products she sold me were reasonable and, it’s been 2 weeks- my skin looks better than it has in years. I am so thrilled to have found this little jewel of a business. I will be returning. Prices are very reasonable too. My friend had a facial with her daughter and was also very satisfied.

5/5

My mom booked facials for my sister,myself,and her (catered to all our types of skin types: teenager 30’s and 50’s) Yvonne gave me the best facial I have ever had!!! Not only was she extremely knowledgeable but my skin looked amazing!!! If you want to have a relaxing experience and have the best looking skin you need to visit this little gem in Laguna! I will definitely be back. Yvonne thank you so much

5/5

My girlfriend booked a couples massage here and it was great! Very friendly host at the front desk and staff as well. We haven’t had a massage before and they listened and and catered our massage to our needs (tough for me and gentle for her) it was overall a great experience and we would recommend this place for anyone and will definitely come back.

5/5

Who wants RESULTS!!!???? Sure, facials are pampering, calming, “a treat”, etc….but, let’s not kid ourselves here…nobody has time in this day and age to settle for “treats”. Why not be treated, educated, healed AND transformed? It IS possible to have it all, I promise.

I earned my esthetician license through a highly acclaimed Aveda Concept institute over 16 years ago, so, BELIEVE ME when I tell you Skinterest is THE REAL DEAL! The owner and head honcho – who personally delivers the amazingness I speak of here – of this amazing spa, Yvonne, has an insane amount of experience in so many modalities of skin care. She has been trained by the absolute best of the best in Europe, Canada, and the US, and has traveled across the globe perfecting her craft, spending a significant amount of time and energy learning the world’s most effective protocols, methods and best-kept-secrets pertaining to beauty, health and wellness. Not only do her treatments FEEL amazing and insanely relaxing, but the proof is completely in the pudding with her and all she does. Whether your skin is broken out/acne-prone, mature, combination or ruined (like mine, see below), Yvonne can and WILL change your life when it comes to your face. (She actually knows so much about everything so be sure to visit Skinterest for ALL your wellness needs – inside and out!!)

After having had my face destroyed and permanently scarred by an aesthetic dermatologist’s office in South OC a few years ago from the misuse of a Fraxel laser, I am feeling better than ever about the direction my skin is headed now thanks to Yvonne. She just knows her stuff and truly cares about her clients! She gives her all to you in so many more ways than just her top-notch services. Please trust me and do not waste a single moment at any other facility when it comes to caring for your skin. She handcrafts every single mask, serum or combination of her endless supply of therapeutic treatments she applies to the skin based on what you need at that very moment, perfectly balancing what is sure to make you glow right when you leave but also have long lasting, significant improvement as time goes on. Her knowledge of ingredients, skin care lines, methods, etc is mind-boggling and truly is remarkable. I really appreciate her honesty also. She doesn’t just fawn over her clients and try to make you feel like a princess and all of that stuff. Don’t get me wrong, she is very caring, sweet, funny and complimentary, however, she tempers her kindness with honesty (not selling you junk you don’t need or downplaying real concerns you might have about your appearance) and true professionalism. GO SEE HER!

5/5

Some of the best customer service out there! We went there for our anniversary and everything was just as great as reviews say. We will definitely be going back! My only complaint was that the massage room had windows and even with the sheer curtains and face towel they put over my eyes there was still a lot of light for me. I like the rooms pretty dim but that’s just my personal preference, it wasn’t a problem for my boyfriend.

5/5

I went to Skinterest for a facial the week before my wedding and Yvonne gave me the nicest facial I’ve ever had.  I adore her!  She knows so much about skin and her facial massage was pure heaven.  I recommend adding the Spanish gel masque — it was fabulous.  My skin was glowing!  She made me feel radiant on my wedding day!

5/5

I was here with a friend about 3 weeks ago and I loved it. From the time we checked in when we were offered cucumber water to the time we left I was in complete relaxation mode. I forgot the name of the receptionist who asked me to yelp them? Ivonne I think was her name?….Nonetheless, here is my review. I give it 5 stars. Everyone was very nice and polite. It was my first time getting a massage and I will definitely return. Everything from the message, to the spa and the chocolate covered strawberries with champagne at the end was amazing.

5/5

Went for a Valentine’s Day couples massage. It included facials, private steam and shower, and champagne and chocolate covered strawberries! Everything was amazing. Massage was fantastic and we were totally relaxed afterwards! Definitely recommend:)

5/5

This is the best spa due to the number of treatments they have available compared to other spas. I have been going here for a few months now for Vacudermine and Pressotherapy treatments which have essentially gotten rid of some circulation issues I was having in my left knee and has shunk my waistline as well. Also doing LED treatments for my face and various other things. The Spa itself is wonderful, small, private and professional. Yvonne is a truely lovely individual. Go here and get something done already!!

5/5

I was lucky enough to be given a gift certificate for a facial and massage.  I decided to split the services and did the facial first.  I went with the signature facial, which was the best facial I have every received.  The spa itself is very modern, clean and inviting.  Customer service is fantastic and you can tell that they really care about their clients.  They are very knowledgeable and carry great products mostly free of all the yucky chemicals and nasty junk that you may find elsewhere.  I am looking forward to going back in the future.

5/5

Sienna is the best! I am so happy to have found such a wonderful and truly knowledgeable esthetician.  Sienna took her time to really explain what services would be best for my skin type.  The spa is beautiful, clean, peaceful, and they have a great array of products for people with sensitive skin like myself.  I am a true Sienna and Skinterest devotee!!!

5/5

I have been a client for over 5 years now. Yvonne and her staff are fantastic and well trained. Highly professional and top of the line products and services!

5/5

Yvonne and her staff are as good as it gets! Warm and welcoming, yet entirely professional and incredibly knowledgeable. And the location is charming beyond belief–a veritable high-end treehouse in Laguna Beach, beautifully furnished with every amenity. Enjoy your fantastic treatments then browse nearby shops and treat yourself to lunch or a cocktail at Lumberyard!

5/5

We really enjoyed The Ultimate Couples Destination Package today!!!  My massage therapist Peter was very good and addressed the areas we talked about prior to the session.  Yvonne was very personable and does a great job engaging with her clients.  I would highly recommend this spa and experience.

5/5

I came to skinterests after I booked a couples package as a birthday gift for my boyfriend. It was such a fun and intimate experience! The spa is clean, comfortable and beautiful. When we were there Yvonne and her staff made us feel like we were the only guests in the world! Everyone was focused on our comfort and needs. We booked the “Couples Ultimate Destination” which I would highly recommend. It came with an amazing massage, private steam room and champagne with chocolate strawberries! If you go here it will not disappoint.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful skinterest experience for this valentine’s day.  We did a romantic couples massage where we were both next to each other enjoying great touches by both masseuse.  After feeling very relaxed we got to share a eucalypus steam shower together which is great for respiratory breathing.  All this was finished off with some champagne and chocolate covered strawberries all presrnted perfectly by Yvonne the owner.  It was a truly relaxing and romantic experience and it’s great to have a massage by people who truly care.  Thank you Yvonne! We are sure to come back soon!

There are many reasons why to love Laguna Beach. Beautiful weather, gorgeous scenery and of course the excellent services of local shops and restaurants. Among these top services is Skinterest. There is no other day spa that delivers their customers top-quality service and genuine care. I’ve had several services here over the past two years including: facials, massages, and I can honestly say my satisfaction was surpassed every time. Located in the Lumberyard Center along Forest Ave, the spa is easy to access despite the congested traffic known in Laguna Beach. The spa itself is not too big, however this is good. The store is private, elegant, and is absolutely calming the moment you walk in. The decor is simple yet extremely polished. The customer service itself was excellent. The staff is genuinely kind and easy to communicate with. Answering all my questions, informing me on each service and product. What i love most was the staff guiding me to services that fit my needs. My needs were to erase acne and to purchase products to keep my skin looking great. After just one facial, my skin looked refresh and the acne was gone. Thanks to the hour long facial (by the way- truly is the best anywhere in Southern California) and the high-quality products my skin is at its best. Skinterest offers many services with reasonable prices. With the services they offer, the beach a walk away, and the genuine care they give to every customer- I highly recommend stopping by at Skinterest for a great experience and to gracefully unwind.
