Great treatments for Rosacea! 7/1/2008

I have suffered from rosacea for the past 10 years. I've been to dermatologists, many spas and even holistic healers and I was ready to give up. Recently a friend recommened that I go to Skin Quotient. I was reluctant at first because I had been to so many spas and I was never completely satisfied with the treatments for my rosacea. As a matter of fact, I stopped going to spas for the past few years because I really did not see the point. Well, I finally found the diamond in the rough. This place is no ordinary spa. My esthetician was so knowledgeable and she used organic treatments for my skin. I did not know I could receive all natural products for my skin since doctors and spas were always using medical products on my skin. I did get the 75 min facial (every first time customer should get this) The esthetician explained everything that was going on with my skin and she made sure to discuss my eating habits, physical activities and work lifestyle. I went into Skin Quotient with dry, red, inflamed skin and left with soft, calmed and glowing skin. The tightness and flackiness was gone and not just that day but for several days after. A few days later a came back a bought the serum and mask and I must say my skin looks and feels much better. I will defintely return. more

Client comes First 6/24/2008

Went to Skin Quotient and had a not-so-good experience, filled out their service questionnaire honestly, and the problem was corrected. Very attentive manager- really made me feel like they cared and wanted to see that I had an amazing time. Thanks Skin Quotient! more

Best Facial and Massage! 6/21/2008

I've been going to day spas for the past 20 years. While I've been to just about every high-profile day spa in Chicago, I must say I was pleasantly surprised when I went to Skin Quotient. From the outside, it looks pretty simple but once you walk in, its just beautiful. The colors are warm and soothing. The staff greeted me right away and thanked me for coming. I was impressed with the depth of knowledge that my esthetician had about acne/rosecea. I found out that she actually specializes in acne and rosacea and she also performed a very detailed nutritional assessment in addition to the computer skin scan. I have never had a skincare experience like this before--the attention to detail was outstanding. After my facial, I received a Free make-up session. The esthetician blended my foundation and made a custom eyeshadow for me based on a sample of a eyeshadow that I had from another company. I also received a massage and it was heavenly. The rooms were large and not tiny, like most. The beds were warm and cushy. I was extremely impressed with the level of personalized service at this place. Finally, I must say the products I bought are great. I usually do not buy products on the first visit but the esthetician was so knowledgeable and she did not try to hard sell any products to me. I love this place and will defintely be back. Pros: Ambiance, Customer Service, Very Experienced Cons: Hard to find from the street, Definitely need to book appointment in advance for facials more

Gross... 6/13/2008

The staff is sooo rude! Wow for these prices I should be treated like a princess. Instead, the staff is rude and it's not clean at all. There was a long black hair on my ""clean towel."" Gross! They also charge your credit card if you can't make it within 24 hours. Desperate and money hungry... Oh and the facialist left the room to talk on her cell phone.. hmmm just don't go. more

Excellent!!!! 6/14/2007

I would definitely recommend the spa to anyone and everyone. The girls that worked there are friendly and charismatic and turned me into a repeat customer. I went to get a custom blend of mineral makeup and am extremely satisfied, Lisa was great! She really took the time to blend me my perfect color and formula and kept me entertained the whole time. I actually live over a hour away but have no problem making the drive, it's is so worth it. I highly suggest you run, don't walk and see for yourself. Pros: The girls, the enviroment and services they offer are all top notch. Cons: Parking is a little tricky, but then again it's Chicago. more

Fantastic! 5/18/2007

I have been getting services at Skin Quotient for almost a year and half now, and I can not get enough. The customer service is so personal and friendly at SQ that I enjoy getting treatments there. At least once a month I recieve waxing service, a facial, pedicure and the deep tissue massage. I am addicted! All the employees really now how to treat their clients. more

Delightful Services 5/16/2007

I had a delightful time visiting this spa. I have gone to this spa for nail services a couple of times, and I found the atmosphere quite relaxing once I sat down in the comfy accommodations to get pedicure treatments. The nail Technicians were pleasant on each of my visits, and my name was promptly called for the services upon announcement of my arrival to the spa. If you ever get invited to one of the spa parties, I can guarantee that you will have a great time. Arrive early though. . ..Being the early bird allows you to take advantage of at least one or more mini spa services, ""free"" that I might add. . .offered during the night. I think that it is the spa's way of saying ""thank you"" in placing me on the invite list to their seasonal spa parties. Pros: The Spa accommodated me in giving me a late evening appt. as I travel in from the suburbs back to the city on workdays. . . more

Great Experience 5/16/2007

This spa is wonderful. I had a facial for the very first time and they were very informative about the experience and what it involved. What an incredible experience! A friend from work recommended the spa and the staff was so polite and helpful. I also love the products that they recommended. more

Wonderful surprise for Mom!! 5/15/2007

Every year I send my mom to a different spa for Mother's Day. This year I surprised her with a gift certificate to this spa. After her experience at Skin Quotient, she told me that she wanted to go back and she did not want to wait a whole year! So, I am sending her back to skin quotient for her birthday in July. Usually, she's looking forward to the next spa adventure. But, she told me that her spa experience here was the best she'd ever had. She loved the people and she raved about the atmosphere. I love my mother but she can be a pretty critical person, so for her to rave like this is rare! Skin Quotient must be a wonderful spa. So, this year I plan on joining my mother for her birthday (a little mother/daughter outing). I must experience this for myself!! Thank you Skin Quotient for taking such good care of my mother!! Pros: Staff and atmosphere Cons: none stated more

Best Spa in Chicago 5/10/2007

I have been looking for a spa since I moved to Chicago from New York a year ago. I've been to all of the top rated spas in the city but much to my disappointment, something always fell short. I recently visited Skin Quotient and I was so AMAZED!! Everything from the chic decor to the personalized service was top notch. Every aspect of my facial service was customized to such a high degree. My esthetician did an indepth review of my nutrition, skin care practices and the products I currently use. The level to which they custom-blend their products is pretty incredible. After the facial, the make-up artist custom-blended my foundation using their mineral-based system. She also custom-blended a blush for for me that was discontinued almost a year ago by another brand (I did not know that you can bring in any make-up and they can match the color. She was able to match the color precisely. I also had a great pedicure there. Definitely 2 thumbs up for this place -- it's a rare gem! more

A Little Slice of Heaven! 4/13/2007

I received a gift certificate to Skin Quotient. I waited 4 months to use it and my only regret is that I did not come sooner. I was thorougly impressed with everything from the time I booked my appointment to the time I left. The spa is beautiful. It was so colorful and upbeat with a great sense of style. I was treated like a VIP from beginning to end. The esthetician was fabulous. I really felt secure with the expertise of each of the staff members. My massage and pedicure were amazing! Equally outstanding was the custom-blended make-up service I received for Free! As a woman of color, I rarely find places that can really match ,my skin tone. The make-up was great and I also bought some skin products. This place is a gem! You get customized service and products to meet your inidvidual needs. While I often keep little treasures I find thoughout the city a secret. I could not help but tell people about this place. It is the BEST! Pros: Great Serivce, Skin Expertise, Cool Urban Vibe, Fabulous Make-up Cons: N/A more

You gotta be kidding me 4/7/2007

All I can say is no one reviewed things such as?\r Satisfaction: Sanitary: Sales Pressure: On time: Evening hours: \r \r Well so let me be the first to do so here for you all, I went there to get a facial, for her sake I will not mention her name but her hands did not smell as nice as I would expect next is sales pressure. Don?t get me wrong I have money but the way they try to sell you the products they have in their salon is just preposterous. Yes she was on time and evening hours are there but since I was the last appointment they could not wait for me to get out having some of the lights off and all while I was leaving. It did not leave a great image for the price that I paid.\r \r Hope everyone else has a different experience. \r Pros: Place looks nice. Cons: Staff and the vibe more

Try the maverick 2/19/2007

I went to Skin Quotient to get what they call a ""Maverick Wax"" (think full Brazilian, except for guys only). According to Laura, the esthetician who did the work, she has several clients who come in for this treatment, many of whom are straight like me. I had a great experience I have to say. Laura does a great job. She's very skilled and professional. Don't get me wrong guys, this isn't a comfortable treatment, there is some pain involved. But it's definitely worth the smooth results. I used to shave this area, but I will certainly be going back to see Laura for the Maverick. Pros: Professional, knowledgable, makes you feel comfortable Cons: A bit pricey, but worth it. more

LoVeD IT! 1/3/2007

I really enjoyed my experience at Skin Quotient. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The picture facial was really amazing, WOW. Now I really know whats going on with my skin and plan to stay on top of it. I had a great Esthetician, she was super informative and helped me to understand what I needed for my skin. \r \r If you are looking for a day spa to call your own. This could be the place. If you like professionalism with personality!\r \r Happy New Year!! Pros: High quality performance and care from staff! Cons: You can't tip the staff on a credit card! more

Treated Like Royalty 11/7/2006

From the time we walked in to the time we left my wife and i were treated like v.i.p. customers. Originally i was supposed to be treating my wife to a day of pampering, but after walking in i soon changed my mind. Everyone was so pleasant and another gentleman (customer) convinced me that spa treatments are not just for the ladies anymore. My wife and i have recommended Skin Quotient to all of our friends and family and i would like to recommend it to you because we all deserve to be pampered every now and then right? Pros: professional service, individual attention to each customer Cons: the parking can be a little bit of a hassle but its worth it more

SQ = Chicago's Greatest Spa (Re)Treat! 10/6/2006

I recently flew from LA to Chicago for some R&R and knew I wanted to treat myself to a facial at a premiere Chicago day spa. Your reviewers rated Skin Quotient pretty well so I gave it a try. Glad I did. Skin Quotient compares with the notable spas found here in LA. SQs great for those who enjoy a facial or massage in a clean, soothing, and intimate setting and who appreciate a friendly and professional staff. I was quite impressed by their state-of-the-art skin complexion analysis machine and the benefit of an onsite make up professional who shaped my brows and customized a mineral based powder for me. I wholeheartedly recommend this spa to anyone -- men and women -- who want to begin a skin treatment program or solely to enjoy great facials, massages, manicures, pedicures and customized makeup. You're definitely in great hands at SQ!\r Pros: Friendly, expert staff, clean 5 Star facility Cons: None that I can think of more

Overall, an A+ 5/3/2006

I will admit that I am a guy's guy; sports, beer, you know what I am saying. Usually spas are not my thing. However, after going along with a girl friend last month, my opinion has changed. While I was there for a long, affordable full body massage, I was very impressed with the combination of the professional, yet down to earth staff. The spa itself had a high-end yet comfortable atmosphere. Every woman in there could not stop raving about the skin technology. As if the place itself was not enough, Skin Quotient also has there own line of products specially formulated for various skin. It was no suprise that the owner just flat out knows how to run a business! Pros: friendly, knowledgeable, professional more

Tranquil Aqua Excellence 2/22/2006

My private spa party was the most relaxing yet uplifting Sunday I've ever spent with a few of my best girlfriends! We adored the breezy aqua and peach ambiance. Our every sense was delighted as we sipped wine and listened to sultry world beats. The staff was well versed in the services provided with sincere regards. Pros: value, ambiance, great staff more

Finally, a spa that produces results 2/22/2006

Getting my skin analyzed and having treatments that are actualy tailored to my problem areas has shown me that not only can a Spa be beautiful and fun, but can produce visable results! I love it. Pros: beautiful space, skin analysis, knowledable staff more
