BAAAAD !!!! I had a really bad experience at Christine Chin's spa, I took an appointment on Febr. 4th, 2014 to do my eyebrows and to see on my first visit how is the spa for futures appointments for other services.

I was excited a week before to try this place and I was looking forward to my visit and for what was to come. The employee that did my eyebrows called Connie, she was extremely rude to me from the beginning, after going to a room she did everything possible to make me feel uncomfortable, she was grumbling, making mournful sounds and she was impatient......when I was taking my jacket off, I asked her if I need to take also my boots off to be more comfortable and not to mess up the white bed and she responded: "...do whatever you want, I really don't care....." once on the bed, I told her that I would like just to clean my eyebrows and look something similar to a picture I brought, I thought that by showing her a picture it would be easier for her, she laughed and said, in a really rude way that she cannot do that not even closer.

First time I've experienced a place where I was treated like garbage, rudeness and aggression were there !!! Disappointed after my appointment, I searched for reviews on the internet and I found out the owner's nickname, Miss Christine, is the "Queen of mean", by looking at her pictures she looks a very nice and friendly lady, just I really feel sorry she has employees working for her so unprofessional and mistreat costumers, she might know and should be aware what is going on with her employees once the doors are closed, I am sure she cares about her business and wants to have a great spa, she should address this matter!

Result of my visit, they lost a customer, employee Connie did a terrible job, my eyebrows are very thin now, opposite of what I had before the service, she waxed them and it took less than 4 minutes when I was told by receptionist that it's a 15 minutes service. Also they changed twice my appointment to accommodate other customers. I paid cash, I asked for a receipt and employee Connie said that when it is paid by cash they do not give receipt and If I want one I need to wait, the receptionist was not there, she promptly came to the room and immediately printed it for me. I definitely won't come back !!
I prefer to spend my money somewhere where they say thank you when I give a tip and don't have a bad-tempered....One more negative review for them........that is too bad :(((

I have been getting facials for atleast 5 years, not on a regular basis but just from time to time before big occasions. I was there this past Monday and at first freaked out because I was getting married this week and my skin looked red and had some scabs. After like 12 hours it started clearing up, after 2 days or so my skin looked AMAZING. I have good skin so didn't understand the deep extraction facial. But they obviously know what they're doing because my skin has never looked so good. My skin is radiant. Even my fiance said something. All the other facials I had gotten in the past did not give me these results. They focus on deep extractions so you should know that going in, I had never had such a deep cleaning before. But it is so worth it. I will be going back for facials on a regular basis.

Love the staff here, we (my husband and I) both come here about 2-3 times a month. We also love Orchard Street this block! We love the new Pilgrim shop at 70 Orchard Street that opened in may, great designer shoes, handbags and clothing (new and vintage -- really edited designer vintage). Best facials in town, lots of Vogue editors.

I had a facial with Christine herself at the recommendation of my medical dermatologist, who said "she will get your face cleaner than anyone." Once at the salon, Christine convinced me to get microdermabrasion as well.

Christine has a reputation for being no-nonsense and she is - she will tell you what kind of skin you have, what you've been doing wrong and how she can treat your skin problems. She won't sugarcoat anything, and she does name-drop her celebrity clientele. Having said that, she was honest and competent and not mean or intimidating at all.

The microdermabrasion was one of the most aggressive ones I've ever had - she went over the same spots again and again and I was sure I would escape with raw, scraped skin. As a woman of color, I would be hesitant to trust another aesthetician with this level of abrasiveness, but Christine is a master (I was reassured on this by my doctor). The microdermabrasion was followed by a soothing facial but with aggressive extractions - not painful but she went after everything. I was amazed when I had only minor peeling after both procedures and my skin has looked and felt amazing since.

The only negative was the hard sell on products at the end. I do love her mild toner, but her assistant and the young woman at the desk both pushed the rest of the product line (firming serum, daily serum, retinol lotion). None of the prices are outrageous for a celeb skin line but I hate coming out of a facial and having to battle with the front-desk staff about buying products.

Having said that, when I called a few days later with a question about use of one product, they had a record of when I'd been in, what I'd purchased, who I'd seen and notes that Christine had taken from our session. Impressive.

Verena is the best aesthetician I have ever had, hands down. I came to her 8 months before my wedding and asked her what I needed to do to have the best skin of my life. She suggested a six-week rotating schedule of micro + facials, facials, and back again. By the time my wedding rolled around, I was getting regular compliments on my skin tone and smoothness, and plenty of comments about how I don't look my age (and what woman doesn't love THAT?) :)

Verena is kind, thorough, and dedicated to giving you the best results possible every time you see her. She will spend as much time with you as necessary to get it right: she never cuts a single corner, never makes you feel rushed, and also does a wonderful job of respecting your budget and not over-selling the spa's products and services.

She has become a friend over the course of the last year, and I genuinely look forward to seeing her every time I go in.....which is saying something, given that it's true what they say about the facials here...but no pain, no gain, ladies! ;)

I had heard about this spa through many professionals of my industry but was reluctant to go because I am not a big fan of "celebrity-hot spots" ...
Until this past Spring - I was recommended to Verena and have been returning to her specifically on a regular basis. I have very reactive skin an many things make my skin break out (even weather change!). Verena is the most thorough facial expert I have ever encountered !!!! No joke !!! No zit stands a chance with her and... And she has the abiolity to extract really deep, yet always gently and without torturous pain ! I find that she is also very knowledgeable about skin and can articulate easily what goes on, what to do and not do ! Since I have been going to her my skin is turning around literally ! And it's not because I sleep more or travel less ! It is utterly and totally the results of her cleansing and extracting skills ! I have an appointment scheduled with her next week and I am really looking forward to it ! My skin positively glowing and happy each time and in between appointments keeps its balance in spite of my over indulgence! Go Verena !

I periodically suffer from severe cystic acne, and for the last six years, I have visited the Christine Chin Spa for facials when my skin gets out of control. The first time I went, I saw a facialist named Sammy, and was blown away by the results. I had never experienced such rigorous cleansing. It took several consecutive facials, but it absolutely changed my skin and my life. I no longer felt like a victim of bad skin. Sammy stopped working at the spa though, and over the next couple of years I saw different facialists, but there was no one in particular that i would ask to see more than once. The extractions were good of course (it's Christine Chin Spa afterall), but as funny as it may sound, I didn't feel any personal connection. Finally, a year ago I returned to the Spa with a particularly bad case of acne. I was getting married in a couple of months, and really needed an SOS. I have to say it was the absolute best facial I have had at Christine Chin. Again, it took several facials, but Verena completely turned my complexion around. I felt like she took the time to see my extractions through to a point where they were really going to effectively heal my skin. She explained the process of how the skin heals itself, and also the reasoning for using the different types of products that Christine Chin offers. I actually had been irritated in the past by other facialists that had encouraged me to buy different things- but this time I actually took a chance and tried several items (which is not characteristic for me at all). Half a year later, I now only use Christine Chin's moisturizer, toner, and blemish gel. I am a skeptic when it comes to expensive beauty products, and use many other generic items, but absolutely will not buy anything else for my face. I highly recommend Verena if you are selecting a facialist at Christine Chin. I also recommend the Perfect Hydrating Cream...it's really and truly perfect!

I have been doing my eyebrows with Christine for a couple of months now and she does a great job of explaining what needs to be done to your eyebrows and how eyebrows should be. Christine is very detailed in her work and I recommend her. However, I do find that she takes off too much hair leaving my eyebrows really thin and I constantly have to fill in my brows. Christine has fixed my eyebrows and now they are both straight with an arch the only set back is that she left me with little hair and my eyebrows are now thin. I have also tried a facial here but not with Christine. Verena did my facial and she did a good job cleaning my face but I do not think that the facial was worth 120 + tax + $40 a mask that she recommend. Grand total of 166 + tip is not worth a facial here at least not with Verena. I felt that the previous place for $ 72 dollars did almost the same exact job for half the price. I would recommend Christine for eyebrows but be aware she likes to take out a lot of hair.

I have sensitive skin, and am very careful with facials. I can honestly say that my facial with Christine was the best I have ever had. Her extractions are virtually painless, she was extremely nice and very patient in explaining options for my skin. I left with a glowing face and virtually no redness at all - it was a fantastic experience. Christine and her staff are fantastic, and I am thrilled to have found them. If you care about your skin, this is the place to go.

My brows have never looked better!!! Christine is a genius with wax and tweezers.

What a wonderful experience! Christine began with a consultation in front of the mirror to discuss exactly what she was about to do and how she envisions my eyebrows (honing in on what areas need to be grown out and not touched). She then explained how the desired look would match my face perfectly..I felt as though i was getting a haircut!

She spent much time pefecting my brows and i can honestly say they have never looked better. Definitely worth the $. My friends immediately noticed my "new look". I'm hooked!

I have been to many of the so called "Best Facialists" in the city, but no one compares to Christine Chin. Not only is she amazing at exctractions, but she understands all types of skin and can tailor products and services for your exact skin type(without pressuring you buy all of her products! (She even reccommends other products not in her spa if she thinks it is what you need, which is unheard of!) . When I first started seeing her, my skin was a mess! And I had been going regularly to her downtown competitor (let's just say the place starts with an L...) I am a true devotee to Christine, and after one time with her you will be too!!! I would never get a facial anywhere else in the city. She is even amazing at eyebrows!

It's all business at the Christine Chin Spa - if you're looking for a spa that promises you everything but doesn't deliver on anything, this is not your spa! BUT if you don't mind the straight-up, matter of fact-tone of the receptionist for the price of beautiful skin that lasts for months on end - this is the place to be! One facial is worth about 6 or 7...or rather a lifetime and my editor friends are fanatic about the results!

Go to Christine's spa once for an eye brow shaping and you will never dare to pluck your eye brows on your own again! Christine knows exactly what shape to sculpt your brows so that they flatter your eyes and face shape and snips away long hairs using a special layering technique that makes brows look fuller where it is thin, sharper where it is too full. Brows never looked so great!

Just be ware, you better listen to what she instructs you to do so you don't get scolded like a little girl the next time you step into her chair!

I have never had a facial that made my skin glow and stay impeccably spotless for so long! Christine does not miss a single clogged pore, a single tiny bump nor flaw and while the extractions can be slightly painful as she goes over your skin with her swift fingers, the soothing masks at the end leave skin calm and the tiny red spots went away within a day or two!

This is a facial worth spending the $ on! Her brow shaping is also like an immediate eye lift. She knows exactly where to wax, pluck and cut to make your entire face look phenom.

I went for the first time last week on recommendation from a friend of mine and was blown away by the facial I received! She wasn't kidding when she said that I would have the most thorough facial - my skin has never felt better.

If you want clear, smooth skin ... head to Christine Chin and ask for the woman in charge, herself. You'll leave with the cleanest pores you've ever had (and so what if you weren't serenaded during your treatment?!). Christine may be "mean" as some have posted earlier - that is, she says what she sees (yes, the years of cigarette smoke, pollution or dirt on your face) - but she is the best of the best!

Take your heart off your sleeve and let her (and her team) do what they do best - treat skin. I'll be back yet again and again and again ... her prices aren't too high. Imagine what damage you'll have to reverse if you skipped out on proper skincare by the time you reach 60. I'll pay the $300 or so every couple of months ...

Pros: Facials, dermabrasion

Cons: Distractions

The woman talked endlessly about how I had to have microderm abrasion ($150 extra on top of the $120 facial) every 6 weeks. I was 27 at the time and have since been told that that would be ridiculous for someone at my age. It was misleading advice motivated by greed. Yet, she picked my skin thoroughly--the best extractor I've ever had--and I appreciate that.

But I probably wouldn't go back because of the heavy-handed sales pitches.

Pros: Great for extractions

Cons: Facial isn't relaxing because it feels like you're getting duped into spending a lot of $$$

.

I've been going to Christine Chin Spa for over 3 years now. Though the prices are high, the facials are the best in the city! I've never had a problem with attitude, service, cancelled appts or any of the other grievances expressed in the other reviews. I'm sorry to hear all the bad things about this place b/c i've only had great experiences. i will say that i've never gone to christine herself (too expensive, even for me - and hard to get an appointment) BUT I do go to Anne. She is amazing, nice, polite and goes over your face pore by pore. She was also recommended by NYMag as the person to go to (other than Christine) at this spa.

So ... Yes, the facials HURT! (b/c they focus on extractions -not just a pleasing, relaxing treatment)
Yes, your face will be red/bumpy! (b/c when they do the extractions, your face reacts)
and YES, in 24 - 48 hours your face will clear up better than ever before.

so don't book an appt the day of an important event or even the day before. many seasoned facialists will tell you this. when you get a real facial which focuses on the health of your skin, then it takes a day or two for your skin to completely "heal".
As for the rude employees. I will say, that I've never been mean or rude to them. and they have never been mean or rude to me. take that for what it's worth. i've rescheduled appts a couple of days in advance and have never had a problem. i've shown up at the last minute, and anne is always waiting there for me with a smile on her face.
there products are expensive. the things i don't want? i just say "no", polietly and firmly. they get the jist prettly quickly, and now all anne does is polietly suggest things that may be helpful, but not to expect me to buy up everything they offer. i did just buy their spf28 sunblock. expensive, but supposed to last all year. and won't clog my pores like the other brand i was using. which will lead to less painful extractions during my nxt facial!

Christine Chin saved my eyebrows from near extinction, I had over plucked them to death. With Christine's gentle guidance I now have the most perfect eyebrows and get so many compliments on them. My mother has just started seeing Christine and is getting a total brow makeover for the first time in her life, she is thrilled! Not only is Christine the best eyebrow person in the world, she is also extremely kind, fair and the consummate professional. Don't believe the crazy negative reviews and judge for yourself. If you are looking for perfect eyebrows (and amazing facials, products etc.) then go see Christine. You won't regret it!

I have gone to Christine 6 or 7 times now for her microdermabrasion facial and I have to say the results have been excellent. I had a patch of bumps near my jaw line from wearing sunscreen and Christine did a great job of getting rid of them thru extractions. She is very thorough. While it is not a relaxing experience and is also not cheap, I have to say she gets results.

Christine Chin Spa is WONDERFUL! I have been going there for about 5 years now. Christine always engages in conversation with me; so don't believe some things you hear, she is nice! I'm probably one of her younger clients, starting there when I was about 13 and she has been nothing but friendly. Most importantly I get compliments on my eyebrows everywhere I go! I have brought many family members and close friends to her Spa specifically for her eyebrows and facials and everyone always comes back happy and continues with her services. If you want beautiful eyebrows and gorgeous skin, Christine Chin Spa is the place to go and is definitely worth the money.

I recently went for a visit to Christine Chin Spa. I had read alot of hype about her services and decided to give it a try. I've always had problem skin and really wanted to try to clean it out. Apprehensive after reading all the reviews about her mean attitude, I was not sure what to expect. I walked into the spa, was greeted and taken exactly ontime for my appt. All of her staff was friendly, and Christine came in to work on my skin. I am not sure why people call her mean, but she was very nice to me. She was honest about my skin which is important, but not at all mean. I thought she was very pleasant actually. My appt was for a facial, but since I had such build up, she suggested the microderm. I knew the prices beforehand, but even on the table she told me the price of each and the total for the two. She did not pressure, but I got them both. The microderm was very thorough, and then the extractions began. Christine really paid a huge amount of detail to my problem skin and extracted everything and anything out. Painful, yes.. hopefully worth the pain though! Other spas will massage and baby your face which feels good, but does nothing to really improve the clarity of your face. Christine spends the time to actually clean and heal. I also received a mask which was very soothing.

At the end of the visit, yes the tip envelopes were on the counter, but I see that at my hair salon and waxing salon all the time. They did not force one on me nor push tips as others have written. Christine also then came out to recommend some products to me. They were pricy, so I decided to buy just one. She did not push the others, but gave me a few samples to try. I was very surprised and pleased. My visit with her has been A+. The next morning, I woke up with spots/redness from the extractions but really not that bad considering the work she did on my face. Hopefully in a few days, my skin will be glowing. Thank you Christine! :)

Pros: Excellent thorough facials and microderm, skilled

Cons: Expensive, would have liked some background music or relaxation music

Christine is awesome for Micro-dermabrasion and facials. She really goes the extra mile to make sure you're extracted with the skin of a peach. Don't expect her to baby you, she gets the job done and gets your skin in order! Christine is great for overall skin care and worth the extra bucks becuase when you see your face the next day....words cannot express!

The products on the other hand...hmmmm not really sold on their effectiveness. They are pretty pricey. I say just make the appt with Christine and use Clearasil.......Christine is the real product here!!!!

It's true, Christine Chin is the best in the field. No one can compare. You dont need to be a celebrity to get one of her exclusive treatments. Her facials and microdermabrasion are more affordable/effective than most places and will leave your skin more healthy, glowy, and youthful. Of course you have to book in advance to get her, but hey its worth the wait! She's tough but NO PAIN NO GAIN! I'M ALL FOR CHRISTINE CHIN!

If you go to Christine Chin Spa do not expect a normal facial. You will be surprised by her unique approach which aims to remove imperfections and deep clean the skin. Most facials just exfoliate and remove dead skin. Christine removes growths and improves facial tone - a service that would normally cost thousands through laser surgery. You will receive tough love as she impresses upon you the abc's of maintaining good skin. In addition to her facials, she is the Queen of picture perfect eyebrows. She has an artist's eye when it comes to one's face and a keen sense of beauty. Refrain from buying that pair of pradas or that coach purse. Invest in your face. Go to Christine and you will look like a star without the unnecssary accessories.

AVERAGE AVERAGE AVERAGE! everything about this place is AVERAGE!
The eye-lash tint I had was simply unnoticeable. I was left for about 45 minutes as my eyes tinged, and when I opened them I could simply see no difference. A PURE WASTE & MONEY!

I will never go back. Ive been getting facials for many years and I can take the rude service and very long wait even with an appointment, but I cannot take the relentless pushing of products and services. I made an appointment with Christine for a facial- she said she wanted to work on my brows before she started becuase they were not right (of course I got charged). THEN, we went for the facial and she said that I needed microdermabrasion or anything she would do in the facial would be useless. The only thing I could say good about this place is that she did work very hard on my face and spent a great deal of time, but I paid for it when I checked out.
Im a pretty easy going person, but would not recommend her to anyone. I had a terrible experience here.

I do not understand any of the negative reviews. Basically, if you want perfect, completely blemish-free skin that looks 10 years younger than when you walked in, this salon is the only place to go. Christine is an absolute miracle-worker: she has done for me in only 3 treatments what no other aesthetician (or dermatologist for that matter) has ever achieved. The only thing that the salon expects is for people to show up for their appointments. I don't think this is too much to expect. I'd take the no-nonsense appointment policy and stellar treatment any day over a lax appointment policy and a mediocre facial. Kudos to Christine and her staff!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been going to Christine to have my brows done for about 6 months. I can't say that I was VERY happy with the results, but she kept insisting that the shape of my brows has to be changed and it takes time. Like I said it's been almost 6 months but I don't really see much progress. However I'd be willing to continue seeing her if it wasn't for the following incident: I had a facial booked a month in advance, when they called me to confirm I said I was going to be there. Then the day of the appointment my son got sick with the fever and I called them early in the morning (7 am) with the message that I can't come. 2 Weeks! Later I'm getting a call from the office saying that I have a no-show that I need to pay for... My explanation was not good enough - although they did get the message, they insisted on "the company policy" that states that everything cancelled less than 24 hours has to be paid for. (we are talking about $450 here. ). I understand the policy, but it has to be reasonable. Over all the time I was going there never once I cancelled or was late. Given the fact that they are so "busy" and have a waiting list (which I doubt now) they shouldn't have had a problem placing someone else to the time slot, reserved for me. The conversation was pointless as they insisted on me paying so finally I said that I think they are insane and I simply won't be going there anymore. So unless you are a model or an actress or someone willing to pay for something you didnt get - don't go there. Oh, and as for their products - do yourself a favor and buy Revive.

So I got an appt. easy enough and I really don't have any major complaints. I had a brow wax with Connie and she explained everything a brow should be and my brows came out pretty good. I would recommend this place to a friend having a brow issues. Upon checking out the receptionist definently was not happy that I put my tip on my credit card. I understand that the tech has to pay tax on tips from a credit card but I was made to feel very uncomfortable, so I advise those to make a pit stop at the nearby atm.

I booked an appointment for eyebrows based on the reviews from this site. An appointment was easy to get. However, the receptionist would not book an appointment without a credit card confirmation. I had the first appointment of the dsy. I did not recieve a warm welcome. The treatment room was in the basement of the salon. The room was dark and without personality.My appointment was with Connie, who was polite enough and did a good job. She spent exactly 15 minutes on my brows. I didn't think there was anything special about the experience. I was a little taken aback when I got to the front desk to pay and waiting for me was a grautity envelope with Connie's name on it. I thought this was pretty unprofessional and not what you would expect from a upscale salon. The cost $41.60. Nothing special here.

Definitely the first salon I've been to where the owner hustles for tips. Owner complained about a previous client the entire time. At the inflated prices they charge, especially for a facial from the owner, I couldn't believe the overall rudness and hustling of the atmosphere. It kind of makes me doubt that she has the celebrity clients she claims to have, since no celebrity I can think of would put up with that kind of atmosphere. The facial was okay but nothing special.

I read all the reviews of Christine Chin spa before I went to my appointment last night. I was concerned that it was not going to be everything I had hoped it would be. Christine went over my hopeless brow problem with me and then quickly got into the business of making them the best they can be considering what little I had. I am positively thrilled with the results. Before I left, I was sure to book my next appointment. By the way.. I called the salon for the first time on Thursday.. They indicated that they were booked for weeks.. I asked to be put on a waiting list. I went to see her two days later. They are on top of their business.

How on earth did this Day Spa get voted the best in NYC! The staff was extremely rude to me. I arrived a little late (like 15 minutes) and got nothing but attitude and a snarl when I arrived. With much apology on my end for the late arrival, they did take me in for a facial. The woman that worked on my face was awful and didn't know what the heck she was doing!!!!! Still one week after my first facial here, my acne has flared up so badly I had to go see a dermatologist!! This was my first time going to this so called Best Facial Spa, and it will certainly be My LAST! Take my word, and take your business elsewhere!

I have looking for a good facial place for several years and finally found Christine Chin Spa. My facialist Agnes, was thorough and knowledgable. She spent time to listen to my problems and gave me a lots of good tips to deal wtih my acne. My skin is so smooth after the facial and I will definately go back again.

I have looking for a good facial place for several years and finally found Christine Chin Spa. My facialist Agnes, was thorough and knowledgable. She spent time to listen to my problems and gave me a lots of good tips to deal wtih my acne. My skin is so smooth after the facial and I will definately go back again.

Pros: thorough, knowledgable, friendly

.

I must admit, I am disappointed by the reviews that are not recommending Christine and her staff. I started coming to Christine this past fall for facials and for her to fix my eyebrows and I am hooked!! I find her staff lovely and yes she is direct, but very knowledgeable and friendly. The renovations a very nice and add to her excellent service. I love her products as well and have noticed a difference in my skin and texture. So anyway who writes a bad review, you must have just had a bad day. Yes, they get booked up but they are accommodating to help you....they are open 7 days a week...how may other places can say that and actually be quality? Not many!!
