We’ve all been there – we know what a facial is. Its supposed to be a beautiful, relaxing treatment filled with awesome advice and care.
Well, Gibson Spa is the opposite of what a beautiful facial treatment should be, and I’m saddened to have spent $80 on such a worthless and awful experience.
Having already been at Gibson for a massage treatment, I was well aware of the insincerity of the employees and their ambiance. They try to be very friendly and polite, when in fact their flakiness shines out more than their skin tones.
After the inital communicaton with the receptionist, I sat down only to be asked three times in a space of five minutes if I wanted water (only water), she wasn’t sure if I spoke French or English so decided to ask me all three times in both languages.
The esthetician had me waiting fifteen minutes before I had to ask the receptionist if the treatment was cancelled…another round of “Would you like some water… Vous voulez de l’eau?” ….
Finally I was on the table awaiting the highly anticipated relaxing treatment. GEEZZZ I’m a tough and rough gal, but this one was over the top. First of all, her English was not ENGLISH. Secondly, her hands were as rough as a construction worker’s. Lastly, the woman left holes in my face and left me to venture without so much as a moisturizer as protection against the ridgily freezing Montreal night weather.
PinkRay’s Evaluation: C-
(the decor was pretty, and the spa was very clean, if not tiny)
