Oh my goodness. I have found the gem of all gems in Charleston. I am not one who jumps at facial treatments, because I have insanely sensitive skin. I mean INSANELY sensitive. I think I am prone to rosacia, and anything abrasive or peeling makes my skin on fire. My cousin Way Way has been seeing Kristin at Ella Ora, for years and I had been wanting to go there, but had been nervous about my typical reaction to facials. But, I pretty much try to do whatever it is that Way Way is doing, because she is Benjamin Button personified. Seriously. She is GORGEOUS. She has the most amazing skin and hair and most importantly, she is the kindest, most thoughtful, talented person I know… I could go on and on about my unicorn sister/cousin/friend, but this is about Ella Ora ;-).
So, I finally made an appointment with Kristin and went in to Ella Ora and WOW! It’s the most serene, gorgeous spot. Soft pinks and gold and grays are my jam, and with Way Way’s beautiful art on the walls, Ella Ora really is a dream. Kristin offered me an almond milk latte… yes please! We talked about my skin and I expressed my concerns, and we went into the treatment room, and go down to business. Kristin is so knowledgeable, and explained everything she was doing and what products she was using and what each step was doing to help my skin.
Let me tell you it was, hands down, the best facial I have ever gotten. Truly. I walked out glowing and not one bit red + I felt so relaxed and amazing.
Besides the beautiful ambiance and amazing treatment, they play the best music. Not the spa type music that can be nice but generic. I meant great songs that are both relaxing and that you know and enjoy.
