Facial by Casey was fantastic! She

Facial by Casey was fantastic! She gives an amazing massage (which is the real reason I get facials) and is really knowledgeable about skin. She gave me several great suggestions for products and nutrition that have really helped my skin. I highly recommend getting a facial by her, she is awesome!

Fantastic personal attention.

Vicki Mills has been fantastic. I had a major skin outbreak and she was patient and understanding to help me calm my skin down. Vicki was so supportive during the whole ordeal with my outbreak and offered calming facials and personal attention. I now go to her for regular maintenance facials and she is always so thorough. My facials are a must-do for each season change to keep me looking great and hydrated. I highly recommend Skin by Marywynn. The one-on-one consultations are great and they are so professional and calming in their salon. The products they offer are a bit pricey but totally worth it. They treat their clients like friends and are always so welcoming. Schedule your appointment NOW! You won

Better than a dermatologist!

I have been a client of Marywynn's for almost 2 years, and I started going to Skin when I was frustrated at the condition of my dry, reactive facial skin. Marywynn did a thorough evaluation and figured out that I had eczema, which required a different skin care routine than the constant exfoliation which other aestheticians recommended over the years. I have been following her regimen for a while now, and have not had major flare ups. I am so happy, and I look so much better! Marywynn really knows her chemistry and understands how skin functions. Great customer service, too!

My skin's hero is Vicki Mills.

It may sound like a paradox, but Vicki really does provide facials that are both calming and invigorating.

She understands what my skin needs—and what I can realistically do to meet those needs. In fact, she has helped me create a skin care routine that’s as realistic as it is personalized.

Vicki’s abilities have transformed me from a skeptic to a fan of facials. I walk out of each session feeling renewed, encouraged, and secure in the knowledge that whenever I have my picture taken, my skin will glow.

Vicki Mills is amazing!

Vcki Mills is a great esthetician! As soon as i walked in I felt right as home. The atmosphere is very relaxed, inviting, and lovely. Vicki made me feel comfortable from start to finish, giving me a thorough consultation in order to fulfill all of my skin care needs. She is very informative, knowledgable, and confident in her abilities and she delivers! During my facial she walked me through all the steps, and had me practically drooling with her wonderful massage techniques. Thanks to her my skin looks and feels beautiful! I can't wait for my next facial!

Kris Koby Saved My Skin!

After decades of struggle, I had recently given up hope for my terribly reactive, hormonally messed-up skin. After a rough pregnancy and years of health problems that left me with terribly scarring cystic acne, I was frustrated and looked pitiful. I had many facials and found my skin would improve for a day or two then get even worse, and the expensive products I tried that seemed to work would just make things worse in the end. My busy schedule as a stay-at-home mom and my general distaste for long beauty routines did not help my skin.

Then Kris Koby at Skin by Marywynn came to my rescue! I have had a series of four facials from her over a few months, and the difference in my skin is astounding! Kris taught me how to take care of my skin at home with simple, quick steps with no-fuss products that are inexpensive (and often can be found in your grocery store!) She gave me samples to make sure things would work before I spent money on them. She showed me how I had been doing things on ""expert"" advice that only made my skin worse. She even addressed the peeling and excema patches on my hands which have improved massively.

Facials with her are as relaxing as a massage and I feel great afterward. I finally have that ""glowing"" look that I never had while pregnant!

Kris really understands skin and has taught me how to love my skin, too. I will continue to go back to Kris and would recommend her to anyone, particularly to anyone with hormonally challenged skin like my own.

INCREDIBLE FACIAL!

Kris Kolby gave an excellent facial providing both skin-care knowledge and a truly relaxing spa-like experience. I have been using the 2-L line of skin care products that they carry for the last several months and have been really happy with the way they leave my skin feeling balanced. I plan to continue to see Kris as a part of my skin care regimen and would highly recommend her to anyone!

Beautiful Skin!

I was referred here by Urban Waxx (great place too!) for eyelash tinting and had a great experience with Vicki. My lashes look amazing! I was nervous about getting a facial because I have very sensitive skin, but I'm so glad that I went for it. It was so relaxing and my skin looked amazing after and still does a few weeks later! I didn't break out and all the products she used on me were gentle enough for my sensitive skin! I will definitely be going back. I can't recommend this place enough! Go see Vicki!

Dewy,Glowing Skin!

I had a lovely facial and eyebrow wax with new talent Kris Koby. She was very thorough and had a relaxing, gentle touch. I fell asleep! She was very sensitive to my needs for skin care products that I am not allergic to and came up with good substitutes.I enjoyed blissing out here. As a new mother, I don""t get much me time so getting pampered was just what I needed!

Love Vicki's Facials

I've been seeing Vicki for facials for the past 2 years. It's great she has joined with Skin by Marywynn, the northwest location is great and you don't have to pay for parking. After the birth of my second child, my skin needed some much needed TLC and Vicki provided that and then some. She has educated me about proper products for my home care routine as well as information regarding the role diet can play in maintaining healthy skin. I wish my time allowed me to see her more often, I'd see her once a week if I could. My skin feels and looks better than ever and as a mom it's a great way to honor ""me-time"". I deserve it and so do YOU!

Wonderful Experience

I couldn't be happier after being referred to Marywynn' s by a friend. I totally agree with all the great things others have said on here so here's something new.

I just tried the lash tinting. Hardest thing I've ever done, lay there and have someone mess with my lashes. Totally worth it. End result, awesome dark lashes that don't need mascara for the summer. I have super sensitive eyes and had no problems. It's amazing, I'm telling everyone!

All the products used have been great. My first visit I was sent home with a couple of samples to try (I have to clarify this point because I have been charged for trial sizes before - these lasted a few weeks and were free!). Great way to hook a customer! I loved the products of course and now won't go without.

Please give them a try, they are totally worth every penny!

My skin has never looked better!

I feel so much better about my skin. I was at the end my rope with skin care/products and so forth and then I met Vicki. Her help has made a major difference about how I feel when I look in the mirror. She is the best and she has a client for life.. seriously.. I'm so glad that I found her.

I can't wait for my next facial!

By the way, the treatment rooms are beautiful and the comfy adjustable beds make you never want to leave!

beautiful skin after first visit & it keeps getting better

hmmm, i'll start at the beginning: pulling up and having a parking space(!), beautiful fun colors with inviting front desk, water w/ orange slices, fresh rose petal water to soak your hands (ahhhh), comfy beds & cozy covers....and now the really great part: marywynns hands are insane! you will be so relaxed, informed, laugh and day dream about what you need to do/sell to come every day. the lymphatic massage is so incredible. at first, i was a skeptic since what could that light touch possibly be doing?? but then, twice i've missed my exit home from the pure relaxation.
then the products: tuel (love the sunscreen moisturizer & cleansing milk) and am now hooked on marywynns products: stress cream & eye cream. oh and for travel, the platinum mask is a no fail skin reviver for those overnight flights. AND yes, maybe they are a bit more than what you may be used to....but a few bucks more for glorious skin? um, i think it's worth it so step away from the 'organic all natural line' at your great grocery store and step up with these products because everyone will notice your great skin.

You will LOVE your skin!!!

Marywynn is brilliant. She is by far the best esthetician in NW Portland. She can work magic even with the most challenging skin. I hated my skin all of my adult life and Marywynn showed me how to LOVE it. Her facials transform your face. The microdermabrasion treatment dramatically improved the overall texture and feel of my skin. She also offers an amazing selection of skincare products. One of my favorites is a tinted sunscreen that dries to a matte finish!!

I treasure my time with Marywynn and you will too!!!!

""I don't do facial treatments""

If you are looking for the best skin care in town, please try everyone else first -- so you can then see Marywynn with some perspective.

Here's the scoop:

As an adult I still had some acne and Marywynn brought me in for a consult.

Thing is, I said to myself, "" I don't do facial treatments"".

But I had an open mind, and I was tired of not looking my best... so I let her do her thing.

Glad I did, because today, for the first time in my adult life, my skin looks clear and healthy.

Fact is:

--The hands on treatment is hands down best.
--The skin care products are revolutionary.
--Her brain is an encyclopedia of skin.

I trust Marywynn and you should too.

PS. She is good enough that I wrote a separate review of her skin care on yelp!

Best Facial in town

Marywynn gives the best facial in town. My skin always feels super smooth after a session. Her product is amazing too, I especially recommend her awesome eye cream!! I noticed a difference after using it for one week. Most importantly Marywynn, Vicky, and Kris are all about creating a wonderful experience for their clients. After a stressful day, there is nothing more soothing than a trip to Skin by Marywynn for some top notch pampering.

Best facial

My teenage daughters and I spent an afternoon getting facials and had a terrific time. They learned some important things about taking care of their faces and how to make scrubs to take care of dry elbows and knees. My skin was glowing after the best facial I've had in a long time. I have recommended Marywynn to a number of friends.
