After filling out some routine paperwork (known allergies, medical history, purpose of my visit, what to expect before/after services, etc) before I knew it, Jena (the aesthetician) came out and introduced herself. She led me down a long hallway into a very quaint room, while dimming the lights and turning on some meditative music. I was very pleased to see how impeccably clean everything was. After a short discussion on what she would be doing and if I had any questions, I proceeded to the comfy bed, in which I would spend the next 2 hours inside.
I was given Coral’s “therapeutic facial” treatment, along with a neck, hand and arm massage. Since I have sensitive skin, Jena designed a customized facial that would not only hydrate my skin, but also help heal and repair it too. The products she used were from a high-quality skincare line called Dermalogica and were the perfect choice. Every step of a skin care analysis, called face-mapping to exfoliation, was done with absolute care and precision. The hot towels that she applied to my face were soothing and I must say, her massage technique was like the touch of an angel. During the treatment, Jena was more than happy to answer any questions I had about my skin or even just about skincare in general.
At the end, Jena gently awoke me (I dozed off a few times because of being utterly relaxed) to let me know that I could take my time getting up and she would meet me in the hallway. Coming out, my skin felt rejuvenated and smooth as silk. We talked about her recommendations to keep my skin in good shape now and throughout the rest of my life. She was extremely knowledgeable and I was surprised at how few products I really needed, compared to what I had experienced with other spa places.
I was also given a goody bag that was filled with all of their other services and coupons for future visits and a great incentive for 25% off for any referrals.
For some people, spa treatments often feel like luxury items that are only affordable on special occasions or for the affluent clientele.

Don’t spend money on your beloved Tim Horton’s coffees and late-night fast food jaunts that only give you a temporary fix.

*Update: I had some reactions with the skincare products that were recommended to me and I must say that I was not pleased with the customer service at Coral when their tone was completely different and only pushed to buy MORE products. I went ahead and contacted the actual company to figure out a amicable solution, as the products were incredibly expensive! They were very quick to handle the situation professionally and contacted Coral, who I will say was very displeased that I went directly to their supplier. Needless to say, I will not return to Coral for any treatments, nor can I truthfully recommend them due to this unfortunate incident. Also, I find that some of their treatments and products that they carry are very questionable and not a business I can support. Customer service is key to any establishment, and they surely blew this one.
