I cannot recommend Maricela enough. An incredible human being aside from being a real professional with a realistic and honest approach to skin care. What luck I have had finding her. Honestly, I have never been a big fan of facial treatments- rarely had the time, patience and/or money. Now in my late 40s, I realized it is time take better care of my skin. Three major reasons keep me going back to Maricela: (1) she actually CARES about your skin and recognizes that your skin is a reflection of where you are in your life in terms of habits and lifestyle. She helps you set a realistic (and economical goal) to help your skin stay healthy; I started off with a Microderma abrsion (I needed it) and she gave me a free derma-planning treatment to help me understand whether it is something that would help. Now I am on a skin maintenance plan! 2) She is super PROFESSIONAL, uses excellent products (which she does not try to sell to you unless you ask), she is efficient with her time and communicates really well with scheduling changes etc. 3) She is an AUTHENTIC, kind and generous human being. I look forward to my hour with her as I don't feel 'marketed to'. I simply feel 'cared for'. What more can one ask for.Dec 11, 2018VerifiedFacial Kneads by Mari's reply
Thank you Deborah for your wonderful review. I am humbled by your words & pretty much speechless. My goal is to always prioritize my clients and strive to meet or exceed their expectations. Most of all, I find it to be my utmost responsibility to care & listen to my clients needs. The most rewarding part of what I do is to know that I am capable of making this type of impact on other human beings. Thank you again & I look forward to our next session together.
I’ve never had a facial like I’ve had with Maricela. She does more than give you products to fix your skin, she actually identifies the issues and knows the best ways to deal with them. Not only that but the experience is incredibly relaxing. I would definitely recommend adding on the hand treatment. My dehydrated skin is now super clean and moisturized and has never felt or looked so good!Apr 24, 2018Facial Kneads by Mari's reply
Thank you Laney! I appreiate your review and I'm so happy to have been the first to give you a facial. I look forward to seeing you again so that you could experience other skin therapys I offer.
Receiving a facial from Mari in the middle of the work week is such a nice treat. She gets the job done well - I feel with great results. Creates a relaxing atmosphere for you. Listens and adjusts the treatment to your needs. Uses excellent quality ingredients - I believe all are organic. The price point is good. She's down to earth and makes sure she meets your needs.Apr 19, 2018Facial Kneads by Mari's reply
Thank you Audrey, I look forward to seeing you again soon.
My experience with Mari was phenomenal. She is super attentive to your face and gives you advice without the pressuring sales. Also, her vibe and ambiance during the appointment were so welcoming and relaxing. To top it off, I've had 4 facials in the past ranging from $100-$250 and this one is the best value with the greatest results. See you in a few weeks! :)Feb 2, 2020Verified
I had an amazing experience with Mari! It was my first facial (I'm 29) and Mari took her time and educated me through the process. It was extremely relaxing. I love the ambiance Mari creates for her clients. The music, the lighting, the candles all provide a relaxing experience. I have had problematic skin most of my life and I'm getting married soon. My biggest fear is having horrible skin the day of. Mari gave me a sample of spot cream to help with a pimple if I feel it coming on - which I appreciate. What I liked most- is when I reached out to Mari, she assessed what she thought could be the problem with my skin and gave me an in-depth solution of what she thought could help. It made me feel at ease and confident prior to going to my appointment. I am definitely a fan and will be following up with my fiance for another appointment before our wedding! :) I came home and he was so impressed with how my skin looked he said he wanted to get one too lol.May 7, 2019Verified
