"It is important to support our local shops ...The "Parisian ambiance" in the decor feels like I getting a mini get-away... I was so delighted when I received the best facial & peel by Laura. Her knowledge of skin & health, along with the facial products & make up she provides is invaluable. Great staff, great gift shop with well priced "hostess gift". Highly recommend!!!"

"Sunless tanning is totally worth it here. If you are going on a vacation or event where you need to show a little skin, head to Ambiance Skin Care Salon for an overnight change in color! I go here and get the spray tan, which leaves a great bronze and will be blended into your skin by hand. The fake bake usually lasts 10 days, and looks rich in color.
The price is worth it not to hurt my skin. Check for packages that add a pre-scrub for a real deal and to make it last longer. Note: Make sure you do not wear silk or white, or plan on getting wet (mani/pedi/spa) right afterwards!"

"I came to Annie for Microdermabrasion Treatments and Triple Action Facials. I cannot thank her enough for bringing my skin back to life. A few months ago I developed acne out of the blue and after trying numerous products and recommendations from others, I could see my skin was getting worse! From my first appt with Annie, I could see an immediate difference..by my 3rd appt I was blown away. Annie has saved me in more ways than one, and the staff is wonderful, especially the Denise (the receptionist). I recommend Ambiance to everyone, you won't be disappointed."

"This is where I go to get myself "together."
I get massages with Heather, SIMPLY THE BEST. I have had many, many experiences with massage therapists, sports medicine teams, chiropractors, and doctors about my back. Heather is an integral part of the team of people that I need to keep running my life at high speed. She is welcoming, professional, intuitive, and in my opinion most importantly, very well educated on the body and it's systems. Her work is the best and her advice on continued care is always spot on. I would follow her anywhere! Thanks Heather!
Annie tints my lashes for me. I SO appreciate the attention to neatness she gives and how close to my lid she gets the tint without going onto it or making a mess. My lashes are blonde so if you don't get right down to the root of it, the tint them makes it look like my lashes are floating or disconnected from my lid, sort of defeating the purpose of putting emphasis on you eyes. Not with Annie though, she is a perfectionist and I appreciate that a lot. She also gives really honest advice on how to care for my skin. Can't wait to try out a facial!
Denise has to be the sweetest human on earth. Every time I come in she is incredibly warm and accommodating, and always genuine. She helps me out with check in and check out, pre-booking, and is knowledgeable on their fabulous retail selection. I would come here just to chat with her. Talk about the icing on the cake.
I recently got to meet Laura, the owner. What a peach. She is kind and approachable, and obviously has a great team of people rather then "employees."
YUP! This is my spot. Highly recommend!!"

"This place is my once a month special treat. If I had the choice, I would treat my self every week. Laura's facials are so relaxing and very beneficial. Now that I've jumped into my 60's (how that happened is still a mystery), it is so important for me to do what I can, within reason, to keep my skin as youthful and healthy as possible. Between Laura's facials (several types depending on my needs at each visit), the quality products available to purchase at Ambiance, and the very helpful tips and suggestions she provides (sometimes a scolding! - drink more water, use sunscreens daily, etc. etc.), there is no other place I would go. Plus, they have the best gifts for the holidays or anytime you need a gift or for yourself!
The minute you walk in the door, the calming experience begins . . . ."

"I cannot say enough awesome things about Ambiance Skin care. It is truly the best place in LB. I love my facials and waxing with Laura and my massages/body treatments with Heather. All the ladies are so knowledgeable and welcoming. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else."

"I had a fabulous massage and reflexology on a special package. Very relaxing and enjoyable. They take good care of you and pamper you in a beautiful setting!"

"A full service neighborhood salon. Annie works her magic with make up and magic. Laura has the experience with facials, peels, etc. The girls at the front desk are helpful. And they have great product and trinkets to purchase."

"I have been going to Ambiance for 4 years to get my waxing done and who looks forward to waxing? Laura makes sure you are comfortable and relaxed and helps with any skin sensitivity. Laura's facials are amazing and she knows the perfect products and treatments for your skin. I now get microdermabrasion and it brightens my skin so much that people see a difference after I get it done.
Everybody at Ambiance is so nice and as soon as you go inside, you feel like you entered an oasis. I decided to try different services after a few years of waxing. Every service I've had has been wonderful and I love that they always give you water after the service. Your health and well-being is important here.
This summer I started going to Heather for massage and she gives 100% every minute she is with you. She listens to you when you want more or less pressure and knows exactly what to do for anything going on with your body.
Their Facebook page is a great way to be included in specials and events. The hours are great, there is parking and I love that I can always pick up some jewelry or other gifts for friends birthdays."
