The BEST Facialists I've ever had! You'll love it, I promise you Paula
I was running 20 min late and they still accommodated me. Such a great facial!
Facials are phenomenal! I have been going to Tina for a few years. My skin always looks awesome. Best facial i have ever gotten.
One of the best facials I’ve ever had. Clean, mellow, space, with excellent attention to detail. Clean organic products. And amazing job on extractions, one of the best I’ve ever had. Couldn’t believe the difference they made on my face. Without irritation or bad reaction.
Kerri is great.
The staff are very friendly, and the place is so clean! I thought it was a new store but turns out they just keep it super clean. I had the hydrobrasion facial. It was so relaxing and my lady, Sylvia was super helpful in answering my questions and just keeping me company. Compared to most spas, the extractions done here are less painful. I definitely recommend this place. After coming here once, I couldn’t help but buy a facial package with them.
A little expensive but very nice
Nice and clean place. Will go there again
Amazing.. love it. Good vibes..
Life is short. You deserve the best
Amazing facials and got my eyelashes curled loved how they look
This is my second time at SKN spa. The first time I came a few years ago I had an amazing massage. This time I wanted to try a body treatment which has been on my mind for awhile. The many things I love about SKN spa is its spacious, clean, have a serene and relaxing environment, and they have great customer service. My only gripes about I had about this service was despite this was my first body treatment, nothing was explained about what was going to be done. So, when the treatment started I was noticeably uncomfortable with the pressure which she lowered. She was not really personable and kept on looking at the timer. It made me think twice about recieving other body treatments there in the future despite often monthly promotions which was offered to me by the receptionist at the end and of course its pricey. We will see if there will be a third time.
Fairy amazing Aesticistician,hydrodermabrasion a must!!
My friend and I came in on a Friday evening for a customized facial. I told my lady that I had a lot of blackheads and enlarged pores. My skin did look cleaner after the facial and it felt very smooth. However, it wasn't the relaxing experience that I had hoped for because for most of the facial, she was trying to sell me packages for a chemical peel for a future visit. I already said no (nicely) a few times, but she was very persistent. She finally gave up, but that's only because the session was over. Even with our Groupon, the facial was pretty pricey - so I'm not sure I'd be back, especially if I have to spend the whole facial listening to a sales pitch.
Another great experience with Fairy and Yoyo for my sister and me. They make this necessary pampering and maintenance all the more enjoyable. Always enjoy my facial from Fairy and Tina. Such great Spaweek promotions in April and October for a special pampering visit. Wonderful service. Amazing facials from Yuki, Kerri, Yo Yo, Fairy, Toby, Karen, Jenny, and Yanni and fantastic massages from Meredith, Jessie, Yo Yo, Frances. We frequently return for facials and the massage promotions are great.
Facial was good- but definitely over priced for the service. They say it’s 75 min but you’re sitting in the room by yourself for at least 20 of those minutes. They give a 30 second massage at the end and honestly for the price I expected a higher quality facial.
I have been a client here for years, and some of the girls are very good. My issue today was with their groupon policy. I saw they were offering a groupon for a facial. I read the fine print and didn't see anything in it about it being for new customers only (usually this is very clearly stated) i bought it and then emailed them. they told me i couldn't use it or alternatively, they could bill me a $25 "duplicate usage fee" (sounds totally made up, i know) bc i had used a totally different groupon, for a different service over 3 years earlier. Then they sent me an email with groupon's actual rules and regs, (not the fine print under skn spa's offer, but i should have searched on the groupon site for their rules (who would even know where to find these on the site???) and they showed me that groupon dictates that unless specifically stated otherwise, all vendors only allow 1 voucher by any one client anytime anywhere. with a spa on every other corner in NYC, i think I'll go elsewhere.
I had my first facial here recently and it was an amazing experience! As a male, having never done a facial, and with a beard, I had no idea what to expect. Kerri was my esthetician and was great about making me feel comfortable while also educating me on my skin, and the facial process. I was never left wondering what was going on or what that tingling feeling was, she proactively shared these details which made the first-time experience so great. She recommended a skin care regimen and wasn't pushy with trying to sell products. I walked out finally understanding why women are so excited to get facials (shh don't tell my fiance I said such things). My fiance goes here too and gets her facials with Fairy.
I love this place! Been going here for years! Everyone is so great. Tina recognized that my skin actually isn't acne prone, just dehydrated and recommended that I switch my products to get rid of all acne-related washes and toners. My skin has been completely clear since. Not even my dermatologist figured this out.
I've been going to SKN Spafor several years now. My first time there was from a Groupon, but I've continued to go back. It is not located that close to my house either. I enjoy both the facials and massages there - both are high quality.

I'm posting this reviews after visiting MANY times. I scheduled an appointment for a facial, I had a work emergency come up and wanted to move my appointment 2 days. I was informed I would be charged $25 to reschedule. I told her ok then just cancel it. I was then informed it would be on my file and they would charge me $25 the next time I came in. Horrible customer appreciation. UPDATE: The manager emailed me and waived the fee.
I got a 75 minute facial with a Groupon offer. The results were great. very clean and relaxing place. I wouldn't get the facial that included extraction though. it hurt and she didn't extract my pimples completely. Overall good for just a facial.
This place is a true gem. Not only is it beautiful and clean, I always feel the staff is on top of their game and very polite. It's a wonderful place and not too expensive. Totally recommending it for facials and massages that I've tried. Go you will feel pampered. Oh and I love the automatic heated bathroom, it's a treat!!
Came in with a Groupon for an organic facial and deep tissue massage. The service was great and I was very pleased with the cleanliness of the spa.
Great spot for a full body massage
Everything was clean and spacious. Didn't feel cramped. They have a gorgeous bathroom with a heated toilet! Everything is very relaxing and a gem in the area. The relaxation room after your services are done is a nice touch. They aren't rushing you out the door like some other places. And they don't try to sell you too hard. Love it.
The attention to detail and professionalism that I receive each and every time from the amazing staff at SKN is FIRST CLASS and FIVE STAR My absolute favorite Spa in NYC. Yuki is one of my favorite practitioners and I know that when I come into SKN and get a facial I'm guaranteed to leave with that gorgeous glow that is associated with a professional and detailed facial. LOVE LOVE LOVE this place Price is super affordable and the BEST Value and Facial in the CITY
I bought a Groupon for the Organic Facial and I could not be happier I did. SKN offers premium services in a beautiful salon. From the moment I arrived, I felt really cared for as a customer. My facial was with Jenny. She took the time to explain all the steps and products she used for my facial. She was excellent at every turn, really demonstrating that she's an expert in skincare. I left my appointment with glowing skin and really relaxed. I would return for another facial and definitely recommend.
The clinician kept running in and out of the room leaving me unattended for long gaps of time. Even though she did massage my shoulders she didn't do this when I also had a mask on so the entire appointment stretched on well over an hour (I left after an hour and fifteen minutes but who know how long it would have taken if I did the whole thing). Her extractions were very rough and I actually started to cry which has never happened to me before. Finally after lying alone with a disgusting feeling/ smelling seaweed mask for perhaps 15 minutes I decided I was so uncomfortable (there was no neck pillow and the mask was dripping into my hair and down my neck) that I should just go. I thought the front desk person would be shocked and ask if everything was ok but she actually just asked for a tip for the woman. When I got home my face was super red/dry looking and I had white stuff all over my nose that the front desk woman did not point out to me.

I have been here at least 10 times for various services - mssages, organic and basic facials, and a couples facial. Each time, the servive is exceptional. It's always easy to book with them because the receptionists are very sweet. I have massages/facials with Jessie, Fairy, Steve, Kerri and Yoyo at various times. I've been to numerous other high-end locations and SKN is just as and in many ways better than places that charge at least double what they do. I absolutely love this place and as a frequent spa-goer, I would have to say that it's my favorite.
every time i come back, it ALWAYS smells so nice in here. i\'m greeted almost immediately; the receptionist always offers me a generous amount of water/tea. facials with kerri is always pleasant. after the facial she would also give me a thing of chocolate along with some water and a hot hand towel, which i think is a brilliant gesture ,because it makes you feel extra pampered. i feel like you get more than what you pay for, highly recommend this spa.
I have both a facial and massage at SKN Spa - both were excellent! Intense and thorough treatments from a kind and courteous staff. I\'m not a regular spa person but after my visit I bought a package for 5 more treatment. A must visit Hell\'s Kitchen gem.
this review is strictly for the therapists that are named. my first facial was with Jenny, she was very VERY gentle and thorough when it came to the extractions. i was surprised at how painless and how relaxing the process was. ive had many facials done in my life, (i have very sensitive and acne prone skin) and all of my experiences were very painful during the extractions. i don\'t know how she does it, but Jenny gets the job done without the pain. how i know my pores are clean? Jenny showed me the stuff on a tissue of what she extracted out of my pores. (super gross) enough said? after the facial, my face was brighter, smoother and VERY VERY clean. i was super satisfied. 5 stars for jenny. my second facial was with kerri, she is a very charming lady. she is also very gentle and super thorough with the extractions. she also gave me a lot of at home remedies instead of asking me to buy all theses products at the store. which i love that about her, makes you feel very comfortable buying things from the store when you\'re not being pushed. 5 stars for kerri. i don\'t need to compare the 2 estheticians, so id see either one in any of my visits, because the both of them are the same level of awesomeness. i see them on a regular basis now, once every 3-4 weeks or so and i always feel so fresh and clean after my facials.
My friend give me a spa week gift card for my birthday. Scheduling was relatively painless and the experience was excellent. The facility is beautiful. Really relaxing in all the different waiting areas. They have front, back waiting areas and semi outdoor waiting area to relax. The girl who did my facial was very capable and made me feel comfortable throughout the facial. My skin felt super smooth, bright and clean afterwards. It was a 5 star experience! Thank you SKN Spa. I would definitely go back.
Very professional & lovely surroundings!!! The massage was wonderful & I look forward to going back! I was there about 2 weeks ago. It was a 5 star experience!!!!!
Great staff, really exceptional service (my 60 minute service ended up being 75 minutes just as a happy bonus). I\'ve been here quite a few times, and the staff just knows how to do it well. The facial is usually my go-to, and I always leave happy and relaxed.
I came to this spa for a facial because I bought a deal on gilt. I had to wait a while to be seen, but they spent a lot of time with me. The entire staff was really friendly and nice. The waiting area was nice, and the appointment room itself was a bit crowded, but it didn't really bother me. They did a great job and if you book a package after your first appointment you get much better pricing. Definitely worth a shot if you are in the area.
I've been here two times and have had a pleasant experience thus far. Fairy is really friendly and patient and spends a long time on extractions, unlike some places. Yes, your face will be red for a day or two, but your skin will be in much better condition after a few days.
Came here yesterday to use a voucher I purchased off gilt city for a Basic Facial. Let me preface by saying, I get regular facials at higher end salons, but figured for $39 dollars, what could it hurt? I'm getting married in 2 and a half weeks and figured if nothing else, it will be relaxing. I arrived 15 minutes early, as is expected in most places, and filled out the paperwork. The girl at the front desk was sweet- offered me water while I wait and was friendly. I then waited more than a half hour. At 6:15 (For my 6:00 appt, not cool when you have dinner plans after), I was brought to the back of the spa by Erika. Erika was nice in the beginning, being thorough. Although, I have combination skin and she insisted it was dry and that I have fine lines (hmmm never heard that before). She proceeded with the first half of the facial, and other than the most painful extractions I've ever had, it was ehhh okay. Then it took a turn for the worse. She applied a cold mask on a face (had to leave the room TWICE) to get it prepped, covered my eyes with it and then proceeded to place 2 pieces of kleenex on the sides of my face, then LEFT THE ROOM. She said this will take 15 minutes, I'll be back in 12 minutes to check on you. I have never in my entire life not had someone massage me at this point. As soon as she left the room, the masque slid down the side of my face, filling my ear with slime and into the base of my hair- also not cool when you have dinner plans after, then repeated on the other side. So here I am, my eyes sealed shut, slime filling my ears, so incredibly uncomfortable it's not even funny. I am here to relax and stressing like a mad woman at this point. It seemed like she was gone for an hour, realistically it was 30 minutes. (I know this because the appt. ran 15 minutes longer than expected.) A half hour is a long time to spend stressing alone with slime in your eyes while you are supposed to be relaxing pre-wedding. She wiped everything off, started telling me about some 5 for 250 deal to which I quickly NIXED. You couldn't pay me 250 dollars to do that 5 times. Left LOTS of masque all in my hair and told me it was all out repeatedly after I kept pulling white chunks out of the nape of my neck. My pearl earrings had to be professionally cleaned, and I spent more than the $39 on the facial on wine and dinner (to which I was a half hour late) with a gf to relax about my stressful spa experience. Spend a little more somewhere else and I actually relax, at least that's my recommendation. And if you start to feel the slimy mask slipping, get help before it's too late.
