Exactly. There are three people I trust to give me a facial and all three live in Chicago. I did have some facials here in DC, and it was like having a facial at the esthetic school.

Yes, I’m sure. I only have one person that I go to. Did you tell them what you do?

No, of course not. Sometimes it comes up afterward.

Yes, in Philly I‘ve visited the five-star hotels and several “Best Of” winners and have always been disappointed. I find the level of knowledge with ethnic skin is low.

Yes, I understand. I recently had a facial with a “Best Of" winner as well, and I had to give feedback. My problems stemmed from her being 45 minutes late, to my treatment being so bottom of the barrel and to her constantly telling me how great she was. I let her know from start to finish how unprofessional she appeared to be.
