it's all hype, no substance

I went there for a facial recently and my face wasn't cleansed thoroughly. The side of my face and jawline still had dried up mask that wasn't washed off. I still had blackheads on my nose. The next day my face became really sensitive and irritated, and I broke out. I think the only reason why she' s in the press is because she has a good PR person but that is it. There was no face massage, extractions were light and they didn't seem to be as knowledgeable as I thought they were. I've tried her products and don't like the way they feel and smelled like there's chemicals in them. Very disappointed. I've definitely had much better facials. I would not recommend this place.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
