For as long as I can remember I’ve had a very normal skin care routine. I used everyday products, in an everyday fashion, with very everyday results. My skin was always just normal (not bad, but not great) and I accepted it always would be. Now, after becoming a regular client at Blue Water Spa in Oyster Bay, NY, and for the first time in 34 years, I can say I am thrilled with my skin’s much-better-than-normal appearance.
Spa owner and esthetician Rachel has been more than dedicated to helping me achieve the best-looking skin possible. From our first meeting, she was friendly, considerate, knowledgeable, helpful and very, very honest. I had been getting small bumps on my face for about a year; she told me that the products I was using weren’t strong enough to deal with my rigorous workout routines. Years of neglect (who knew?) had caused all this buildup under my skin, and she was determined to fix it. I began to follow her instructions and after five or six visits, had brand new, super smooth and super healthy-looking skin! I was definitely hesitant to try a new routine (I’m a little stubborn about my products), but Rachel was so reassuring and trustworthy. On her advice, I began using a new daily cleanser and made three major changes: I have a monthly facial, use an active serum at night, and get microderm abrasion when I can. Now I can’t believe I didn’t seek professional skincare advice sooner!
I’ve been to many spas over the years, from glitzy, big-name Manhattan spas to no-frills neighborhood spas, yet there has never been one place I want to go back to time and again. I can say with confidence that the staff and service at Blue Water make it the best day spa on Long Island, and I am so thankful I found it.
Other plusses: great location on Long Island’s North Shore; upscale, luxury care in a very unpretentious atmosphere; quaint and cozy, welcoming and friendly.
