At 39 years-old, I was ready to invest and feel good about the skincare products that I use. However, I got so overwhelmed by all the product options! And I hate spending money on products I won’t end up using. But Melanie has a wealth of knowledge and when you work with her, all of it gets applied directly to you and your skin. She is easy to talk to, was incredibly mindful of my budget and my specific priorities, and her product recommendation letter included multiple options for each category at different price points. She even helped me integrate prescriptions into my routine! I went to a dermatologist about minor but persistent cosmetic issues, and wound up with mysterious prescriptions about which I knew little. Talking with Melanie, I learned I was actually using one incorrectly. It feels great knowing that the products I’m using now are appropriate and genuinely effective for my skin. I also feel more confident trying new products now.
I haven't changed my skincare routine or products for at least a decade. But Melanie helped me create a routine that fits my age, my budget, and my time. She is very passionate about skincare and really listens to what you're saying. I tried a new moisturizer and sunscreen that I never would have tried on my own. I have also been happily surprised by the improvement of my skin's elasticity and tone since following Melanie's advice.
In February 2020, I had two suspicious moles removed from my face (one was frozen off and the other was surgically removed). I immediately contacted Melanie and she went to work. She gave me recommendations that helped my skin heal so well that you can barely tell anything happened! She also found THE PERFECT sunscreen that I will actually use every day. I cannot recommend her services enough. Her recommendations are consistently thoughtful, personal, and current.
It sounds silly but that doesn't make it any less true: taking care of one's skin is hard! Especially if you're a 38-year old man that's easily confused by the differences between dry and sensitive skin. To the uninitiated, skincare seems like nothing more than an easy way to waste time and money. Fortunately though, there is Melanie. Not only did she convincingly explain why I should take better care of my skin, she then made it easy for me to do so. She expertly put together a low-maintenance protocol that has my skin looking and feeling better than ever. Working with Melanie has been fun, informative, and effective. Thanks, Melanie!
Melanie has completely transformed my ability to conquer my skincare routine. I love skincare, but I hardly have the energy or bandwidth these days as a working-mom-during-the-pandemic to research skincare products appropriately. Melanie did all the legwork for me! And the best part is that her recommendations are both realistic and useful, so I not only immediately understand the why behind her recommendations, but she’s also not condescending or product-pushing at all. Because of that, I feel like I can 100% trust her recommendations. I am finally having fun with skincare again! Her service is such an easy way to "indulge" in some much needed self-care, especially right now.
Melanie kicked my skincare game into gear. After years of just using "whatever is on sale", I now know WHAT to use and WHY! Her level of knowledge is amazing and her commitment to research is comforting. She's officially part of my team.
