Jessica Law - March 2019 - Spa

 Karen really makes her facials a special experience!  She takes time to get to know you and your skin care goals and delivers a customized facial with stunning results.  My skin felt and looked amazing days afterwards!

Jorie Bodell - February 2019 - SPA

 Karen saved my very irritated skin last summer when I was visiting Telluride.  She immediately recovered my skin, providing treatments that took into account my full lifestyle; she shared really helpful product advice, and I continued with her recommendations.  Any other products I've tried since pale in comparison to the results I saw under Karen's care.  When I needed new products about 8 months later, she consulted with me for free via phone/text/photos, and recommended an updated regimen.  She shipped out the products right away (free shipping over $100), and followed up to  make sure I was good with everything!  I can't wait to see her again this summer in Telluride!

Virginia Bender - December 2018

 I went to Karen to get a spray tan for an event and it turned out perfect!  It was an extremely comfortable and private environment and she makes you feel welcome.  She checked with me several times throughout the process to make sure I liked the color, so if you're worried about being too dark or too light she makes sure it's exactly what you want.  Not only is she super professional, friendly and knowledgeable, she's great at what she does and I'm happy with my tan! 100% recommend.

Lisa Hollingsworth-Stritt - August  2018

 My daughter and I took a girls trip from SC to Telluride in August.  She is early 20s and was having sensitive skin and acne issues.  Prior to our trip her dermatologist recommended Accutane.  We were both uncomfortable with that recommendation so we decided to search for alternatives on the trip.  Based upon glowing (no pun intended) reviews, we called to see if we could book an appointment with Karen.  She was quick to call us and spent a good bit of time gathering information about our situation.  When she found we would only be n town a few days she made a same day appointment at 5pm!  She was beyond wonderful to work with.  Her knowledge and product selection are amazing.  She spent well over our appointment time and went into great depth about skincare, the procedures she did, what toexpect, and follow up care at home in SC. We were just blown away at how much she genuinely cared about her clients and her passion for her profession.  Karen even texted multiple times since our visit to check on my daughter's progress.  All of the other great reviews were right on point!  You should definitely treat yourself to the experience!! She is fantastic :) L Stritt.

Karen is incredible.  She looks at you, gets to know you and then knows exactly what you need.  A trip for waxing turning in to a facial with some reflexology on a camping trip to Telluride and it was a wonderful, rejuvenating and relaxing experience.  She's an expert and she knows what she's doing - she really give you her energy and is full of love and light.  I'll be using her services every time I'm in Telluride.

Boy am I grateful I found Karen at Healthy Glow!!.  After living in LA and NYCI've become really picky about where I get waxes and beauty treatments, and was worried that I wouldn't find a good aesthetician in a small mountain town.Was I wrong.  Not only is Karen herself professional, thorough, personable and all-round awesome, but I literally got the best Brazilian ever.  She uses Mancine wax products which is the best out there(Aussies know their wax products), I have the most sensitive skin ever so was a little nervous about the treatment but Karen's skill and experience coupled with her superb high-end products it painless, comfortable, and meticulous.  She is also SUPER serious about hygiene and sanitation so you can rest easy that all procedures will be top-notch and up to the higheststandards.  Seriously the best wax ever and this is after going to the best spas/waxers in LA and NYC.  Don't hesitate just go to Karen!

I went in for an emergency appointment with horrendous post holiday skin. Karen assessed my needs, was upfront and clear about cost, pampered me,and the result was tremendous.  Right after the treatment my skin glowed.The inflammation, dryness and red blotchy patches were gone.  In 24 hours my skin looked better than it has in years.  Karen is knowledgeable and extremely capable of making ski look and feel amazing. I will be a regular client from now on.
