This hidden gem of a spa in Laguna is one where you can find the quality in the services you receive that will keep you coming back for more! The spa owner is also wonderful & takes care of you from the moment you walk in, to the moment you leave. More...

I've been going to Yvonne for almost 2 years and she has always treated me so good every time I walk in the door. My skin comes in waves of being good, then not so good, but with Yvonne's product knowledge and technique, she has helped me so much. She knows what to do each time to better my skin and it works each time! The products used at Skinterest are my favorite because they work for me and a lot of people love the results. I continue to get facials and I look forward to my appointment each time to relax and get pampered!! I highly recommend this spa if you're looking for a skin therapist! More...

My face feels and looks amazing every single time I leave Skinterest spa!I found Skinterest 3 years ago through Google. I have had facials done for years at other places, but the impact and results were never like this...the skin on my face has transformed for the best!Before going to Yvonne, my skin wasn’t too terrible, but I did have some adult acne, sun spots and I thought the texture of my skin was soft. During my appointment, Yvonne performed the facial by examining my face, feeling the texture of my skin, performed extractions and provided her professional opinion while I spilled my guts to her about my divorce btw, she’s a great listener Due to my acne-prone skin, she recommended a specific skin care regimen for me to do at home. Additionally, I mentioned that I generally get these deep painful pimples on my chin. I thought it was 100% hormonal (partially is), but she had recommended I cut back/cut out eating prawns and/or shellfish. So, I took her recommendation and completely cut out shellfish. 3 years going strong and have not had regular deep painful pimples since!I apologize this review is extra long as I believe what Skinterest spa has done for me and strongly recommended Skinterest as your spa experience (e.g., facials, massage, etc.)!!!! Thank you Yvonne and team More...

This place makes you feel very welcome from the moment you walk in. My fiance and i were greeted with some amazing tea and had a nice little conversation with the owner (Yvonne) who made certain our massage needs were addressed. We did a couples massage, i like a firm touch and she a bit more gentle. The ladies we got were amazingly gifted at finding just the right spot! We then stepped into the steam room that felt great and topped the visit off with some champagne and chocolate covered strawberries! I love this place and will be back next time i visit California. Thank you! More...

A true gem! Fabulous body treatments for cellulite and slimming using state of the art vacuodermie and pressotherapy from Paris, France. Thallassotherapy body wraps are amazing too! Top it all off with one of the Signature Skinterest Facials, and you will be in heaven. Love the education, the ambiance and the staff! Try out this special spa! More...

They really know how to give a healing massage! I should have told her my sore and tender muscle spots before she started, but didn't. She found and eliminated each one with precision. Other places I've been to didn't do this. I'd love to return next time I'm in town. More...

If I could give Skinterest 6 stars, I would! This was my first visit to Skinterest (super catchy name by the way ), and I was really impressed by not only the top notch service, but also the quality of the facial I received.  I saw Yvonne, the owner of the spa.  She is very warm and has a very welcoming and inviting energy. She is also very knowledgable about skincare, and really understood my skin and what I needed.  I will be returning to see Yvonne next month for another facial, and can't wait! More...

It was an amazing experience and a very relaxing and calming experience for me.  I just came back from a very long flight from overseas and being nurtured by lovely ladies at the Spa was a very soothing experience and fruitful time to unwind.  Mihaela, one of their Massage Therapists did a great job with her strong and healing hands  I left the Spa feeling fresh and ready to face the week ahead of me..I highly recommend this place for a truly unique experience.  Cant wait to go back for more More...

I am new to the area and so glad I found Skinterest!I have been going to Yvonne who has really helped me clear up my skin. I've always struggled with acne but even more so now as I am recently pregnant and dealing with hormonal changes. Yvonne and team have  really helped me understand whats going on in my body. Yvonne is extremely informative and helped me understand whats going on underneath! She has suggested lifestyle changes, diet changes and products to use. My skin has never felt/looked better. I left my appointment yesterday in shock with how soft my skin felt. I would highly suggest giving them a try, your skin will love you for it! More...

Skintrest is a boutique spa in the heart of Laguna. The owner is very kind and the place has charm. Had an insane massage from Michaela. It was deep-tissue but was unlike any other deep tissue I've had; I told her my problem areas and she essentially did intense stretches on muscles I didn't even know I had. I'm sure she'd be wonderful at giving any type of massage, but if you're going to get her, I'd recommend taking advantage of her rare abilities, and getting the kind I got: the kind that isn't for the faint-hearted. It was the sort of pain you only have when you know you're healing. It had mental and physical effects. But rest assured, I was allowing her to push me because I knew I needed it, and she maintained excellent communication on my comfort level throughout. I had a few knots that only the most determined masseuse could untangle. Of course, she did. Michaela is an excellent and enthusiastic masseuse with extensive knowledge of the human body. I have back pain and have had many, many massages, but only 3 others have been at this level, if that. More...

I had a deep tissue massage with Valentina at Skinterest. She knows what she is doing and applies firm pressure and uses hot stones very effectively. I went in because my upper back and lats were very tight after a work-out. She really helped me! This place is slightly hidden from the street in the Lumberyard Shops. It is across the street from Zinc Cafe and I've never noticed it before. I will definitely be back! More...

Yvonne is wonderful! I recently joined the membership program and now get facials once a month. My skin has cleared up SO much! I've had 3 now so far and have started using the skincare line she recommended -- the difference is night and day. I'm so so happy with my skin, and that's something I've never said before in my entire life! Highly recommend Skinterest. :) More...

This place is truly a hidden jewel in the heart of Laguna Beach. They have THE BEST massages, treatments & facials at a very fair price! If you want an intimate place to relax, I highly recommend Skinterest. If you get a massage, get the "A Much Kneaded Massage" 90 minutes & ask for Jason! More...

Yvonne and Sienna at Skinterest turned my skin from dry, dehydrated, and prematurely aging to hydrated and glowing for my wedding. Both Yvonne (owner) and Sienna (her daughter) are wonderful women, and unbelievably talented aestheticians. They are incredibly up to date with the best products for reasonable prices. The spa is very comfortable and welcoming... treat yourself to a wonderful experience at Skinterest - you will not regret it. More...

This place is absolutely amazing!!! been to other day spas around Southern California and this by far the best experience I've come across even when comparing to The Montage day spa this was even more satisfying. The staff was very welcoming and inviting as I was greeted and taken care of by Yvonne with accommodating my needs very well. I was unsure as to which treatment to purchase, but Siena my esthetician recommended an excellent facial treatment putting my mind and body at total ease allowing for a relaxing yet very professional treatment. I will be going back as I loved the service and was unlike an other experience I've had before. Thank you Skinterest and I'll see you next week! More...

Okay at first I was skeptical because all the reviews on here had 5 stars but I must say this place is the real deal. Yvonne is great! Her spa and herself have such an amazing energy I 100% recommend this place. I had the vacuodermie done to my body and I felt really great afterwords. I was also super smooth and my skin looks even no bumps and after my first appointment. Just speaking to her you can clearly understand she loves what she does and has a knowledge of skin care that is super impressive. I felt like I was in such great hands and I'm excited to go back and get a facial and speak with Yvonne again haha, thank you! More...

I happened in here based on Yelp reviews when I had a friend in town. I'm 49 and have been getting facials since my 20s, in S. Florida and NYC.  Yvonne's was among the very best.  Her approach is very personalized. She is extremely honest and skilled.  She made product suggestions but no pressure.  The products she sold me were reasonable and, it's been 2 weeks- my skin looks better than it has in years. I am so thrilled to have found this little jewel of a business.  I will be returning.  Prices are very reasonable too. My friend had a facial with her daughter and was also very satisfied. More...

Amazing! I booked a couples aromatherapy massage for my boyfriend and I, both never had a professional massage. We felt welcome immediately upon entering by the lady in the front. She was super sweet and informative. I cannot remember the lady who massaged me but she was very kind and took into consideration that it was my first time. During and after I felt the most relaxed in my life and although we were visiting from out of town, if we ever make our way back to Laguna we will definitely be back in!!! More...

My girlfriend booked a couples massage here and it was great! Very friendly host at the front desk and staff as well. We haven't had a massage before and they listened and and catered our massage to our needs (tough for me and gentle for her) it was overall a great experience and we would recommend this place for anyone and will definitely come back.

Who wants RESULTS!!! Sure, facials are pampering, calming, "a treat", etc....but, let's not kid ourselves here...nobody has time in this day and age to settle for "treats".  Why not be treated, educated, healed AND transformed?  It IS possible to have it all, I promise.I earned my esthetician license through a highly acclaimed Aveda Concept institute over 16 years ago, so, BELIEVE ME when I tell you Skinterest is THE REAL DEAL! The owner and head honcho - who personally delivers the amazingness I speak of here - of this amazing spa, Yvonne, has an insane amount of experience in so many modalities of skin care.  She has been trained by the absolute best of the best in Europe, Canada, and the US,  and has traveled across the globe perfecting her craft, spending a significant amount of time and energy learning the world's most effective protocols, methods and best-kept-secrets pertaining to beauty, health and wellness. Not only do her treatments FEEL amazing and insanely relaxing, but the proof is completely in the pudding with her and all she does. Whether your skin is broken out/acne-prone, mature, combination or ruined (like mine, see below), Yvonne can and WILL change your life when it comes to your face. (She actually knows so much about everything so be sure to visit Skinterest for ALL your wellness needs - inside and out!!)After having had my face destroyed and permanently scarred by an aesthetic dermatologist's office in South OC a few years ago from the misuse of a Fraxel laser, I am feeling better than ever about the direction my skin is headed now thanks to Yvonne. She just knows her stuff and truly cares about her clients! She gives her all to you in so many more ways than just her top-notch services. Please trust me and do not waste a single moment at any other facility when it comes to caring for your skin. She handcrafts every single mask, serum or combination of her endless supply of therapeutic treatments she applies to the skin based on what you need at that very moment, perfectly balancing what is sure to make you glow right when you leave but also have long lasting, significant improvement as time goes on. Her knowledge of ingredients, skin care lines, methods, etc is mind-boggling and truly is remarkable.  I really appreciate her honesty also. She doesn't just fawn over her clients and try to make you feel like a princess and all of that stuff. Don't get me wrong, she is very caring, sweet, funny and complimentary, however, she tempers her kindness with honesty (not selling you junk you don't need or downplaying real concerns you might have about your appearance) and true professionalism. GO SEE HER! More...

Some of the best customer service out there! We went there for our anniversary and everything was just as great as reviews say. We will definitely be going back! My only complaint was that the massage room had windows and even with the sheer curtains and face towel they put over my eyes there was still a lot of light for me. I like the rooms pretty dim but that's just my personal preference, it wasn't a problem for my boyfriend. More...

I went to Skinterest for a facial the week before my wedding and Yvonne gave me the nicest facial I've ever had.  I adore her!  She knows so much about skin and her facial massage was pure heaven.  I recommend adding the Spanish gel masque -- it was fabulous.  My skin was glowing!  She made me feel radiant on my wedding day!

I have been here twice for two facials and a hot stone massage and I love everything from the space (which is tranquil and quiet) to the wonderful staff and of course their services are excellent.  My skin always looks amazing after one of their specially formulated facials and I have already recommend them to a few of my friends.  This will be definitely be my monthly splurge on myself in the future!  Thank you Yvonne and Staff More...

Walked into Skinterest with sunburnt, blotchy, aging skin and left feeling like...well, like I had a hint of the lovely skin of many years ago. Really got a terrific facial in the most relaxing of experiences. And my esthetician was so clearly in the know about truly caring for your skin on a daily basis. My only complaint is that expensive products were pushed within 5 minutes of beginning our session until we left. I certainly need good products, but I felt a bit bombarded by the sales pitch throughout. Scale back on the product push and Skinterest would get 5 stars from me. More...

Just a few words about Skinterest and masseuse, Lisa. I had a wonderful experience from reservation to actual massage. Lisa, the masseuse, was amazing. Probably the best massage I have ever had; strong hands, not chatty (some masseuses are and it's hard to relax) and very competent. Treat yourself and make a visit! More...

My best friend and I visited Laguna Beach for our birthday weekends and stumbled upon the Skinterest Spa on Yelp. They were able to get us in right away. From the moment we entered to the moment we left, we were completely pampered. It was the best facial we had ever had. So relaxing and peaceful and used amazing products. The massage was invigorating and one of the best we had ever had. She worked every single muscle and you could tell she loves what she does. This was definitely the highlight of our trip and we will surely come back here, next time in Laguna. The owner even spent time mapping out our next night on the town. This spa is amazing ! More...

In researching different options to get rid of cellulite, I came across vacuodermie. It is not very common here in the states, but is more so in Europe. People were reporting great results, so I thought it time to give it a shot.I called to inquire about their services and process, and spoke with Yvonne. She was very helpful and patient, as I asked a lot of questions. After doing extensive research on vacuodermie vs. endomologie, I decided to give vacuodermie a shot. I was shocked at the results. I lost a little over 1/2" after the FIRST session! I decided to buy a series of 7, and I've had 4 treatments so far. Everyone has noticed a significant difference, even my husband who was skeptical at first. I am truly happy with the results thus far. I feel comfortable in my own skin again. Thank you Yvonne!!!!

This is the best spa due to the number of treatments they have available compared to other spas. I have been going here for a few months now for Vacudermine and Pressotherapy treatments which have essentially gotten rid of some circulation issues I was having in my left knee and has shunk my waistline as well. Also doing LED treatments for my face and various other things. The Spa itself is wonderful, small, private and professional. Yvonne is a truely lovely individual. Go here and get something done already!! More...
