Needed a new skin and waxing lady since my wonderful gal retired!! How can you retire from making skin so lovely I ask?? But alas, I needed a new person - and fast. Penny was able to take me with a same day appointment for a waxing-This was not torture at all. No redness post wax, clean lines. Consistent. I have already been back for more waxing. Awesome! Also important to note, no wax temperature fluctuation issues. Sometimes that goo can be scalding, other times too cold to be effective.

So I booked myself a facial since I really missed the European facial my now-retired person gave. How can this be??? It was the BEST facial I have ever had. I am completely in awe- it was super luxurious, and I wished it were longer. Who doesn't like to get spoiled for the max amount of time possible? Penny is great unclogging pores without making you cry. And no need to whip out the putty knife to Spackle heavy foundation on your face post facial. Somehow her products and facial massage have left a lasting impression as well since it's now Tuesday (Facial was Saturday) and my skin is STILL soft and has not exploded in breakouts.

This is where my inner Texan comes out here, with a much deserved "YEEHAW!" Thanks to Penny and her magical talents!

I have been going to Penny for almost 10 years now and I can't say enough wonderful things about her! I suffer from acne and had tried everything from expensive lasers to antibiotics and nothing worked. Then I found Penny and she was able to clear up my skin and I have been grateful ever since! I highly recommend her especially if you suffer from acne.

I used to go to a salon in West Portal to get my waxing done. Why stress over finding parking in time to make your appointment, when you can just hop over hwy 1 to Pacifica, enjoy the beautiful beach, ocean and sunset views on the way, park for free and pay less for your Brazilian wax. Penny, the owner is very sweet too. She becomes this great girlfriend that you look forward to catching up with!

I used to come in for acne facial but Penny cleared up my skin. So now I come in for the Vitamin C Ultrasound Facial (which helps with aging and scaring and also melts away the clogged pores making the extractions easier) and now my skin is beautiful. I am in my 50's now. My husband goes in for the deep tissue and swedish massage and the men's facial. We both injoy all of Penny's services!

Eight years ago I was given a Skin Reflections Gift Certificate for a Christmas gift. I had had two facials up until then which I was not that impressed with. so after having the certificate for six months I went to get a facial by Penny. I found the experience to be very pleasant and relaxing. I booked for another and have been consistently getting facials for the last eight years. I also get a foot treatment at the same time which feels great. The quality of my complexion has improved and as I approach 60 I feel these treatments add to my healthy appearance. I highly recommend Penny's work. She is knowledgeable and through.

Asolutely love this place. Penny is amazing. You can often get same day appointments, the service is friendly and professional, and best of all she provides the least painful waxing services I've ever had. as any lady can understand, getting you no-no parts groomed can be a hairy experience. she does more than just waxing for us, she has a whole list of services.

Thankfully, I've found the ever-professional, Penny. This lady gets it done and she operates with the utmost precision, Overhead, there's one of those fancy lights that aid in the no-hair-left-behind operative and even if you suffer from pesky in growns, she will remove every one of them. What's most amazing is Penny's ability to remain completely casual and conversational throughout the entire process. She really puts you at ease.

What's more, Penny isn't just your run of the mill civiliam turned waxer. She's got texbook knowledge of skincare after great training. Honestly, if you've never gotten one of these procedures or if you're just looking for the most excellent person to get the job done, Penny is as good as they come. I'll never cheat.

Thank you Penny!!!

I have been customer of Penny's for four years. I set my appointments by the year so I can have the time I want. My skin has neer lookd better for the fair price she charges. The ending message is the greatest. I have also sent my eighteen year old son for his acne since he was fifteen. Quite an improvement without using antibiotics.

Penny does all mine and my husbands waxing services. She does a combo of my lip, chin, arch, brazilian (sometimes I get just the bikini) and legs, she even does my toe's.She give me and my husband a great deal (we come in together). He gets his back and chest waxing done. Penny does a wonderful job and has affordable prices.

I so enjoy Penny's Services. I always get her hydrating Collagen facial. She truly is one of the best esthetician. Every time I go into her spa the aromatherapy smells wonderful and relaxes me. She is such a sweet and caring person.

I have followed Penny from Brisbane to Pacifica because she is very professional. I have my eye lash's and eye brows tinted with no evidence of irritation. The color is perfect for my age and skin color. I have been going to Penny for almost 9 years now.

I moved to Pacifica, was leaving on vacation and wanted a Brazilian wax before I left. Penny got me in and did a great job. I don't have to drive 20 minutes trying to find parking! Penny is great I like to change around a little of the services I get done each time and its never a problem.

I've been going to Penny for close to five years for facials. I have never had a bad experience. Penny is always professional and eager to give helpful hints. I look forward to catching up with her once a month.

I love Penny's massages. They are the best that I have ever had and I have been to a lot of massage therapist. I just started getting the Lash extentions and I love them. Penny does such an amazing job.

I have been getting facials from Penny for about two years now and I think she is great. I first came to her because I wanted my face to be clear for my wedding and by the time my wedding day came around, I was pleased with her work and her efforts on trying to meet my goal. She gave me advice on how to keep my face from breaking out and she did a facial treatment that I never thought of doing and sure enough, they work. The price of the treatments are very reasonable and affordable considering that it actually works. My face is looking good thanks to her and I've been a happy customer ever since I met her.

I have been a client of Penny's for about a year now and I really enjoy seeing her once a month. She is always pleasant and professional. I always have a set appointment. I never have to wait. Parking is a breeze and her rates are very reasonable.

Getting acne facials was never my idea of a great time, but to going to Skin Reflections is like a breath of fresh air. Penny is absolutely the nicest person you can imagine and she is always accommodating to any needs I have. It is located in a gorgeous part of Pacifica, with stunning ocean views and usually nice weather. For a relaxing time in a great environment while getting facials, I couldn't imagine a better place then Skin Reflections.

Penny is the best!!!! Her acne facial treatments are so effective and includes a bonus shoulder massage, hand treatment with arm and hand massage. This is the place to go.

Julianne C   San Francisco, Ca   

This is a great place to go to pamper yourself.  Penny offers many different treatmensts including massage.  The facials are accompanied by a face, neck and shoulder massage.  It's heaven!

I have followed Penny to Pacifica because she is very professional.  I have my eyelashes and eyebrows dyed with no evidence of irritation.  Color is perfect for my age and skin color.  Mary M    Brisbane CA  

What a great place, it's only one block from the ocean. The Acne Facials work wonderful. Only after 2 facials my acne has cleared up. I only go once a month now for a facial. The Brazilian waxing is the most affordable around and don't hurt as long as you go in regularly. Penny the owner is wonderful she is very nice and makes you feel very comfortable. I highly recommend this place. I will never go anywhere else!

Penny is great.  She is really nice person.  Just starting going to her in June and have yet to be disappointed. Her prices are great and parking is not a problem at all.              L.P.       Pacifica CA 

I saw Penny for a series of acne facials and have to say if you have acne, go see her immediately. Other aestheticians I've been to do not really understand acne skin, and how it feels to have this issue. She knows what to do. Her treatments benefited my skin immensely. The mini is a good deal, but treat yourself to the full if you can- just to have some good massage time after those extractions.

I have been seeing Penny Blackwell at Skin Reflections for 10 years.  Her facials are the best I have had and she has variety of different treatments to choose from.  I highly recommend the experience at Skin Reflections, I promise Penny will not let you down!

Renee V Burlingame, CA

Penny was great! It was my first facial in a really long time. Since I had my second son I have been dealing with Seborrheic Dermatitis around my nose and anything and everything will make it flare up. I was really worried about the facial making it worse, but it didn't! It actually looked a little better the next day! YAY! Also, Penny's extractions didn't hurt at all. I have had them done before where I just about cried.  Thanks Penny! :-)

Sarah J.    Pacifica, Ca 

Penny Blackwell is great. I had not had a facial in many years when a friend gave me the referral to Penny. I am a nearly 65 year old woman who people say I look mid 50's. A huge thanks to Penny.

Mary Ellen F. Pacifica, CA

I have received skin treatments by Penny on several occasions.  She has excellent knowledge in face and skin care, and her facials are truly the BEST!  Parking is easy in front of her shop and Penny is there to welcome  you and get you relaxed for any treatment you may decide to do.  I am always looking forward to my next facial at Skin Reflections!
