Refresh Skin Care and Product Testimonials
This needs to be said...! Learn more about facials
"Thank you for a fabulous facial. I'm glowing from ear to ear. I never, ever will take for granted that I am in the hands of greatness when I am in your office. Your knowledge, application and attention to detail to treat & beautify your clients utilizing safe & sumptuous products can never be underestimated. It's not just the great products it's the knowledge & years of experience of a trained professional to produce the highest level of excellence without spending a fortune. I only wish I had a bigger platform to let woman know that the best esthetician in Arizona is right in their own back yard in Scottsdale. You are amazing."
I'm so glad I found Kara! Learn more about brow and eye services
"Not only is she highly knowledgeable, sweet and caring, she gives me the perfect brows and lashes every time! I have been getting my blonde lashes and brows done for 15 years, by popular stylists in Beverly Hills and Hollywood, CA. When I moved back to Arizona I was hoping to find someone comparable, and she surpasses them all!! Her tint is safe, lasts long, and only takes minutes to apply. Her waxing is also friendly, which is super important to me with my sensitive skin. Kara is the best! Her knowledge in skincare and facial treatments is impressive, which makes it easy for me to refer my friends to her. Best experience!"
Brazilian Waxing Learn more about Brazilian waxing
"It’s been almost a week since my brazilian and I’m very happy with the results (my husband’s pretty excited about it too). I was nervous, but you did a great job making my experience as comfortable as possible and I just want to say thank you. I hope to see you again before my trip in March.”"
"Kara is AMAZING!!! I have now gone to Kara twice for a brazilian wax, and I can't say enough about what a true professional with excellent technique she has. She has done this for a long time, and her passion for her profession truly shows! In addition she is just the nicest person you will ever meet! I previously went to Suddenly Slimmer to get my brazilian waxes (if you know anything about them, they are "known" as the place to go in the valley for brazilian waxes). Every time it seemed I found someone I liked there, by my next appointment that person was gone. The turn around was so frequent there, I was offered other services there at a discount. When I was getting married the beginning of this month, I was desperate to find someone who would be able to do a great wax with my course, unbearable hair (Yes! I'm saying it... if you have the same problem I do... you will appreciate the fact that I just said that!... because I know you are looking for someone as skilled as Kara too!) Kara did an amazing job, it was quick, painless (she pulls it so quickly you hardly feel it!), and the cost compared to other brazilian wax places are competitive! Its absolutely the best brazilian wax i've ever had!! The results are amazing! She offers so many other skin care services as well! I was extremely lucky to find Kara, and I will continue to be a client. Don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with her! You won't be disappointed!"
I love my Brazilian wax and brows!!!!! Go to the brow waxing page
"Kara is a very talented provider of skin care necessities! She is very friendly and kind and made me feel very at-ease during my first-ever Brazilian wax! She definitely knows what she is doing. If you’ve never had a Brazilian and are thinking about one, Kara can help you become a convert. I’m totally converted because of the positive experience I’ve had with her. Kara is a brow artist, too! A genuine talent. The parking is super easy and her place is easy to find. It’s a chic, lovely, relaxing environment. Enjoy!"
"Refresh skin care is a wonderful place to go. The Atmosphere is perfect and the staff is even better. Before I came here I would have never considered getting a Brazilian wax, now I will be going in for my 8th one this week."
"I have been seeing Kara for about six months now for both facials and waxing. She is skilled and very professional in all aspects. The waxes are the least painful and fastest I’ve ever experienced. Her facials are excellent, she spends a lot of time doing the most relaxing massage work, and my skin is always glowing when I leave not red and puffy. I am lucky to have found her."
"You were the first to give me a brazillian, a little over a year and a half ago in Fremont, and no one since has ever come close to your care and precision. You made my first experience so comfortable and you did a FANTASTIC job. Since then it has been a constant struggle trying to find someone closer to where I live who is as good as you. I was just thinking I was going to HAVE to come back up to seattle just for your services, but to my dismay it appears you have relocated."
Painless bikini wax!!!
"Kara is very professional, extremely knowledgeable, and simply a pleasure. Her studio is relaxing and immaculate. I see Kara every 5 weeks for a bikini and brow wax and a facial. The wax is honestly painless and her facials are a necessity. Also I use many skin care products that she sells exclusively. Her skin care product knowledge is extensive and she knows exactly what is right for my skin. I recommend Kara’s services to anyone and everyone!!!"
"Kara is excellent, warm, friendly, caring and sensitive to your needs. I don't have a perfect figure and I was nervous about going, but she put me at ease and the whole experience was positive. She uses top grade products and the pain was minimal. Her salon is clean, sanitary, and relaxing. I'd recommend her to anyone needing hair removal."
"About 7 years ago I had an injury to my face which left a small dark scar about the size of a nickel. It was fairly obnoxious looking but insurance doesn't cover cosmetic stuff so I let it slide. Understand I've had facials for years, and some pretty exotic ones with sonic peels and bizarre ingredients. None of them ever did much but make me feel better. Then I found Kara! Third facial she used oxygen and this marvelous stuff made from pears and she did a peel. The scar -- remember it? It's smoothed, and lightened. It also moved which it hadn't before. (skin moves) Fourth facial, we did a repeat and it's even better. Kara is amazing! She knows her business and is a pleasure to work with. She also does my eyebrows and waxing and the results are top-notch. Highly recommended!"
"I've been seeing Kara for the last few years, and she is amazing! She is a great person and really takes care of my skin. When I first started seeing her for facials, I had quite a few skin problems that left me self conscious about even going to the grocery store without makeup on. After seeing her regularly for facials and peels, my face has really calmed down and my breakouts are kept at bay. I feel a lot more confident and now regularly leave the house without makeup. It may not sound like a big deal to some, but it means so much to me. I have also seen Kara for waxes, and she's great with that as well. Overall, she is the best. Thank you, Kara!"
A must for all spa seekers!!
"My experience at Refresh Skin Care was truly one of a kind! Kara’s bubbly and comforting personality as well as the relaxing atmosphere made the entire occasion enjoyable. Being a frequent spa visitor I was amazed at the amount of compliments I received on my skin after Kara’s customized facial. Kara is sure to become a monthly indulgence for me and many others!!"
Best facial in Scottsdale!
"Kara, at Refresh, is a true artist and clearly dedicated to providing exceptional services. Her facial is like none other, cleansing, relaxing and thorough. She listens to your needs and preferences and always makes the facial experience feel like the indulgence of a lifetime. She is a rare find and my only reluctance in writing this review is that I might be giving up one of Scottsdale’s best kept secrets?"
"My wife has been getting facials for years and recommended I go get one from her favorite place. Kara at Refresh made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I’m used to getting massages and was surprised when she included an upper body massage (arms, neck and shoulder) with my facial. Highly recommended."
Good afternoon Kara!
"It was so nice to meet you last Friday! I wanted to let you know that I have gotten so many compliments on my face! Since Friday almost everyone I have seen has told me that I’m glowing! The Jan Marini product line seems to really agree with my skin! I’m looking forward to replacing my Sothys!”"
Amazing facial, Love the products, Great find!
"Kara is simply amazing! I’ve been getting facials for years and never really found a place I couldn’t live without until meeting Kara. Her relaxing space and caring attitude keep me coming back every month. Kara spends the time to get to know your skin type and makes sure to customize the right facial for you each and every time. Thanks for always making my skin look great!!!"

Sales to Georgia
"I wanted to write and thank you for the excellent service. My products arrived in Saturday’s mail, packaged perfectly and in great condition. I was so afraid I wasn’t going to find my cucumber cleanser for the summer — and down in Georgia, I would really miss it. I am so glad I found your website.”"
Brow Waxing Testimonials
Switch to Kara
"I was a little nervous about switching aestheticians because I am very anal about how my eyebrows look. Talking with you, you knew exactly what I wanted and shaped my brows perfectly! Every time I come in I am treated as a friend rather than a client and I no longer have to tell you what I want because you already know! I am so happy to have found a great place and someone I can trust. Thanks for doing such a great job!"
"I have been seeing Kara for a little over a year now. She is fabulous!! Kara is passionate about skincare and, as a result, continuously educates herself on new products and treatments. She has refined my skincare routine and always has time to address any questions or concerns that I may have. She is also very skilled at waxing. I have been waxing my eyebrows for over ten years now and, like most women, have had some pretty bad experiences. As a result, I don’t trust many people to shape and define my brows. Kara has always done a wonderful job. I won’t go to anyone else. Call Kara – you won’t be disappointed!!”"
