I went to Amy with a Groupon for an hour 6 layer facial. For the first 30 min. I felt like I was stuck in an informercial. She ranted on about how bad the products I am currently using are and how much better off I would be with the products she sells. During the facial, she continued with the sales pitch. What's funny is that I almost always buy a product when I get a good facial and I probably would have from Amy if not for the hard core sales pressure. She seems mad at the industry and I really didn't want to hear about it.
Amy was so great!! It was my first time getting a Brazilian wax and I was so terrified!! But, Amy made me feel at ease and comfortable. She was extremely professional and talked me through everything. I live in Houston and made the trip to Austin to have the service done with Amy, and I'll definitely continue to do so!
Clean, Pleasant, Affordable, Great Products – I went to Amy after several laser treatments for rosacea and broken capillaries. The treatments had helped, but my face remained very dry, very oily, irritated, and red. She recommended some great Vitamin C products and these really helped to even out my skin. She has also colored and cleaned up my eyebrows and my lip. I always can feel at ease with Amy!
Clean, Professional and Flexible! – I've been going to Amy for a while now for anything from my eyebrows, lips, and brazilians. Her schedule is always flexible and I've never had a problem getting a same day appointment. The cost is definitely affordable and she does a great job. Having had a botched eyebrow waxing in the past, I never worry about what I'll walk out of there looking like. Wax That is clean and Amy is professional while still maintaining a level of fun. I always look forward to going in and wouldn't think about going anywhere else.
Willing to Travel 45min-1hr...well worth the gas – Every since I had my son, I
fairy god mother :) – I call Amy my "fairy god mother" she is making my wish on having nice, clear, healthy skin possible.Amy is willing to help you however she can as long as you are committed..As for myself im very committed for the well being of my skin and amy is helping me with the process.I found Amy's Skin Care while I was looking up "dermatologists" on google.She was the first number I called and the very first place I have ever really looked up and actually went for it.I got a chemical peel to help out with my acne it was great my skin looks and feels amazing it also felt very relaxing..At first i was scared but hoped for the best and im glad I found her and i wont trade her for no one! I recommend her to the fullest :)
Wouldn't go to Anyone else! – Amy is seriously the best in town! She was the first place I ever tried for a Brazilian Wax and I was very nervous; but she was so professional and made me feel comfortable. I tried a few other places after her just because I like to shop around. No one else compares! Her quality of wax, skills, and everything is the best. I've been a loyal costumer for 2 years now and would definitely recommend her 100% to anyone!
1st Timer – I have always wanted to have the Brazilian wax done but have heard so many horror stories about how painful it was so I finally started doing my research online to see who had the best prices, centrally located, best reviews and who was very informative about what I would experience while having the procedure done. When I called Amy she was very pleasant on the phone and gladly took my information to schedule my appointment. Amy also made sure that she sent me directions to get to her establishment. Once there she made me feel comfortable and right at home by constatntly talking to me throughout the procedure to ensure that I was distracted (this being my first brazilian wax) so that it wasn't as painful and scary as most of my friends had made it out to be, within 45 minutes she had completed the brazilian and the other areas that I requested be waxed as well. I would recommend Amy's services to anyone that is looking for a comfortable environment, reasonable prices and a professional atmosphere. I was so pleased by her work that I went back for a second appointment and have made this a regular routine every month now!!!!!
Thanks Amy =)
Give it a try! – I went to Amy's and had my first ever chemical peel to help treat my acne. I have to admit I was very nervous and had mixed feelings about it. Amy was really great. She walked me through it and made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. I also purchased a post kit that she said I needed to help heal my skin after the treatment. My skin has improved tremendously. I really have faith and feel like her products really work and have made a different in my skin. I would advise ohers to put your fears aside and give Amy a try.
Not So Great... – I had a bikini wax with her and it was so bad that I'm actually coming back 2 years afterward and am willing to write my review.
She was very rude and didn't have a pleasant demeanor. I don't know if she was in just some bad mood or what but I arrived about 10 minutes early for my appointment in a nondescript building with an odd hallway. She basically has this room and a tiny waiting space rented out in a building that has offices and such. But, you get what you pay for so I won't complain.
So I come into a waiting room and kind of look around because I'm not sure if I'm in the right place before Amy walks out of her work area and she just looks at me with this expectant look as if she wants me to say something and I try to pleasantly tell her that I'm here for my appointment at 430. In some way, I just wanted her to tell me I was in the right place and not lost because being lost for a bikini wax...kind of awkward. Not to mention, her area was unmarked at the time so I had no idea where I was.
She just looks at me and snaps at me rudely "Well, you're going to have to take a seat because I'm with a customer right now." I thought this was rude and unnecessary but come on...it can't be great to sit around and wax people all day so I decide to stay and give her a fair shot. She gets done bleaching this kid's brows and then calls me into the room. Everything else afterward isn't memorable but I guess that's fine.
She was rude with a terrible attitude and just very short and terse. I know waxing people's private parts can't be that fun but no thanks, I'll be happy to pay more for someone who's pleasant to be around and I'll return for kind service and a friendly personality. I know I'm the only negative review but I just wanted my experience to be known so that hopefully...she realizes that how she treated me that one day was terrible.
Thank you for reaching out to me. I am terribly sorry for you experience that you may have had. I'm really sad that it took you so long to say something. However your customer feedback is highly important me.
