Love Notes

I have known Pilar for 10+ years, she is and has always been a pioneer in the world of clean skincare and organic facials... I leave her feeling like I have had a mini-vacation, and like my skin is clean, refreshed, glowing, and stimulated all at the same time. And yes, I leave without a trace of makeup and am complimented on my skin all day long. Thank you, Pilar!

—Ada Polla, CEO of Alchimie Forever

"I have been seeing Pilar for at least 8 years now, and every facial is new and more dynamic... just when you think it can't get any better — it is!"

— Kelly I.

 

"What can you say about the perfection that is Pilar. Out of five stars, she gets a 10. When I first feel her fingers on my face I remember what an exquisite treatment I'm about to receive. And I never want to end. If I listed specifics I would run out of space.

— Joni H.

 

A facial with Pilar is like no other — her attention to the details of the condition of your skin and to your overall well-being is extraordinary. She also uses non-toxic, non-chemical, plant-based products that nourish your skin like a healthy diet. She's the best I have found in the DC area and I've been getting facials for decades.

— Marcia D.

 

My skin is luminous and healthy with her wonderful approach and recommendations. The experience of the full facial, including the massage, is a necessary treat!

"Your facials are always a taste of a Heaven! Besides the fact that I love you as a person, you remain the most gifted, intuitive, sensitive, and brilliant skin care specialist in the field. Your touch cannot be matched and the atmosphere you created cannot be duplicated." 

— Sandy B.

 

"You have a gift of being able to make people feel good about themselves and I am so glad to be able to take advantage of your good vibes."

— Mimi L.

"I absolutely adore Pilar and love, love, love her facials.  No one compares. No one."

— Kathy S.

"After I graduated, we worked as colleagues — her work ethic, her dedication to the craft, her extensive knowledge and talent for esthetics stays with me still. I recommend her highly."

— Rachel D.

 

"Pilar has again exceeded any expectation of what a "facial" might be! It is the most fantastic, relaxing, tranquil, and fulfilling 90 minutes. I leave already looking forward to my next appointment! Thank you for sharing your amazing gift with us!"

— Suz L.

"I've been seeing Pilar for the past 12 years. Her new regime is terrific, and possibly the best facial I've ever had from her. My skin was positively glowing!"

— Susan N.
