These guys are, simply put, the BEST! In a customer driven business, Tony and his team seem to be driven by their customers to provide top notch services leaving no stone unturned. Any high-end resort or spa can take lessons from these two. From the moment you contact them, be it by telephone, text or e-mail until the time that you leave after your appointment you will take note of their professionalism. Parking is a cinch! I've had two massage appointments here. Once with Tony, and the second with Tony & Diego. OMG! The quality & skill of these two are unsurpassed by any others. Tony is very intuitive and knows just what muscles to focus on for total relaxation. Diego... never mind he knows exactly what he's doing (still the best massage I've ever had). I asked him for deep pressure and he gave me that without putting me in pain and he found some muscles in my lower back that I didn't even know I had! Their space is very clean, the heated massage table is luxurious, and the ambiance is tranquil (just what you want when getting a massage). Relax and let them do the work. In the end, you're not rushed out the door so that they can move-on to the next customer. Instead, you're left alone to gather yourself and leave when you are ready.

Oksana specializes in lashes and facials. I arrived with every pore clogged with gunk and a major (uncharacteristic) breakout. Horror of horrors, I had picked some!!! Oksana very gently admonished my picking choice and then continued to give me the best facial I have ever had. Seriously, ever. I've been to many other salons and spas. I've been around a wee bit, I know that this was very, very good. Oksana is very calming, gentle, and like her, the studio is serene. Although my facial consisted mainly of (much needed) extractions, I was still relaxed. Oksana ended with a hand and forearm massage-- it was great! Oksana is very knowledgeable, does NOT push product, and has very flexible hours &amp; she'll answer all of your questions. Hip, Hip Hurray for Oksana!!! ==UPDATE== Went back for a pre-wedding facial, brow waxing and eyelash tinting. I was super scared about eyelash tinting. Oksana helped me not worry about going blind &amp; I now ONLY trust her with my lashes. Every single pore in my nose was cleared. No small feat. Very, very impressed &amp; I didn't even break out after!! If you are getting married, go to Oksana!
I've been going to Oksana Skin Esthetics for over 2 years (4 to 6 times a year). I'm definitely loyal to Oksana. She knows how to treat my skin. The best part about her facials is that she takes out every single one of my blackheads (poor Oksana). Even though it can be uncomfortable, I appreciate that she devotes most of our appointment clearing up my skin. I've gone to the fancy spas in the city for facials and they usually just take out one or two of your blackheads then spend the rest of the appointment trying to scare you that your skin is going to fall off because you didn't use x, y, z products five years ago while massaging you. I've bought a couple of several skin care products from Oksana and they work well with my skin. Note that it took me several visits (as well as trying out the samples at home) before I purchased from her. She does not pressure you into buying the products. The only downside with Oksana Skin Esthetics is that you have to book your appointment ahead of time (I book my next appt. after each session). It's not the type of place to call last minute for an appointment (or drop by). It's okay the wait is worth it.
The BEST Eyelashes! The Best Services! Among numbers of wonderful beauty salons and lash extension services in LA, this little salon is outstanding! So Cool! Very comfortable! So much decadence! What's so great? Well, first of all, the person who applies eyelashes, Oksana, is a wonderful person. She has a great sense of humor, is very caring, and knows how to listen to the clients (very important!). She does such a professional and perfect job, and at the same time, is so good at letting clients be in a great comfort. As a regular client of Oksana Skin Esthetics, I proudly recommend this place to anyone who seeks for beauty! Not only eyelash extensions and facials, but products and services are also just so EXCELLENT! She does have great line-up of cosmetics neatly &amp;amp; cleanly displayed, especially Jane Iredale(yeah, Jane Iredale!). Oksana may let you try products with &amp;quot;many&amp;quot; pieces of advices, which are so helpful! Anyway, the entire salon is filled with so much kindness and love. My next appointment is in 2 weeks, but I'm not sure if I could wait...it's just so good to be there....
I consider myself very fortunate to find this place after so many years and so much money spent at the numerous LA spas! I have been going here for about 6 months. Now my skin looks as it never did in my life, with even tone and healthy texture. I always had very dry ultra-sensitive skin very prone to breakouts. When I saw Oksana for the first time she promised to heal my skin, and she actually did and in just couple of months. After three facials friend of mine asked what I have been doing to my skin! Oksana is highly experienced esthetician. She always approaches my skin with customized facials, catering to the specific needs. She uses different high-tech machines, what I find rear for US. I never ever had any single breakout after she did extractions on me. After each facial my skin is just glowing, can't find any better word for that. Most of the clients here have been seeing her for years, now I definitely know I will be one of them. I can't recommend this place more. If you want to get a quality skincare with long-term results, come here, you will not get disappointed! Thank you, Oksana!
Conscientious and meticulous care, comfortable surroundings, flexible hours, and you feel fabulous when you exit. I just had eyelash extensions put in. For smaller Asian eyes, this, I thought, would be an excercise in futiility. I'm completely pleased with my results and if you want to see details on my experience and the before/after pix, I blogged about it here. I got extensions again the week before my wedding and i was excited with the results. Oksanais a complete professional that is responsive, considerate, and attentive. Not sure why some of the negative reviews exist on Yelp. I mean Oksana has taken appointment requests from me via SMS. If that isn't amazing service, I don't know what is. Maybe people who've never been at Oksana Skin Esthetics before aren't aware that this is a one person shop where Oksana does NOT answer phones or emails in the middle of an appointment (because that would just be rude to the current client) but is fast and responsive in between appointments. Oksana's awesome and I can't endorse her more!
I came out of Oksana's salon looking ten years younger. I highly recommend Oksana Skin Esthethics. She got me in on short notice -- 3 days! She responded immediately to my phone call about the appointment. I had no trouble parking nearby and my appointment started right on time. She was very professional and kind throughout! I've never been much of a girlie girl. I have a bit of a laissez-faire attitude towards beauty. I don't exfoliate or use expensive creams, and I don't buy makeup in department stores. As far as makeup goes, I wear only a bit of foundation and transparent lip moisturizer. Even my my standards, my skin has been sadly neglected this past year, and if I'm totally honest, probably since my daughter was born 3 years ago. Oksana smoothed out my neglected skin and hydrated it again. I left her place with my skin looking much more smooth and healthy. I needed a lot of extractions, which she did quite skillfully. She is very thorough and professional. I love it that she owns her own business, too.
My experience with Gisele was nothing short of amazing. The location is convenient and there is plenty of parking in the back. A little bit about me, I haven't had a facial in ten years so that is ten years of build up in my very large pores. After months of great offers for facials thru Groupon, AmazonLocal, LivingSocial, etc I decided to take a chance on Gisele at Beach Beauty Booth. I had been skeptical about going through these coupon sites to find a decent Esthetician because the reviews were always mixed and I am very protective of my skin. However Gisele received nothing but great reviews and after spending over an hour with her I understand why. I walked out feeling fresh and clean, and if you have large pores you know how rare that is. Gisele takes a lot of pride in her work and this is something I as a client appreciate. I will definitely be going back and I highly recommend Gisele! Oh and I got a lollipop at the end!
There are not enough words to describe how grateful I am to have found Oksana at Oksana Skin Esthethicst! All throughout my teenage years I would only breakout during "that time of the month". But as soon as I turned 22 by skin got worse. I would always have at least five active pimples around my chin area. Sometimes they would become cysts. I tried everything on the market, but nothing worked. So I thought about going to a dermatologist but I was a little worried about some of the medications they might prescribe me. Then one day my husband showed me an ad from Groupon for Oksana Skin Esthethicst. I think it was meant to be! After my first facial my skin took a complete 180. I am on my third facial and my skin has never looked better. I will be going back to Oksana for years to come. I would definitely recommend Oksana Skin Esthethics to anybody who is suffering with acne.
Every experience I've had at Oksana Skin Esthetics has been amazing! Oksana did a wonderful job shaping my brows that were once completely "hacked" by an old hair dresser. Thanks to her, they now look fabulous! Her facials are out of this world. Relaxing, gentle, and my skin looks and feels absolutely incredible after. I also love that only all natural products are used. Oksana is professional, caring, and I don't trust my skin anywhere else!!! The best part of this is not the compliments I routinely get about how great I look---it's how great I FEEL! and that is why I think OKSANA is the BEST skin expert and truly deserves the tagline an appointment with her "is worth a trip from anywhere! I Highly recommend going to this salon.
