Two years ago I searched the epicuren.com website for a place on Oahu that used and sold their products. High-end Waikiki hotels popped up on the search but driving to Waikiki wasn??t the relaxing experience I was looking for even if I live a few minutes away. Thankfully, Honu You Hawaiian Spa in Kailua showed up and driving to beautiful Kailua seemed much more relaxing. I made an appointment for a cleansing facial and have been going there ever since. After each facial I feel so relaxed and my skin feels rejuvenated. My skin changes with the ??seasons? and Jennifer provides a custom facial each time. Also, in preparation for my wedding in March, Jennifer fixed my brows with a few wow brow treatments and my brows and my skin looked great! I highly recommend Honu You!

I've been getting a " wow brow" from Jen since the spa first opened. I'm always very happy with the results, believe it or not, I have dozed off on occasion while Jen was expertly waxing my brows.... she is very professional very knowledgeable, seems to know the secret to taming these wild brows of mine ... I also get my upper lip waxed... never feeling any pain or discomfort. Jen also gives me a sample of finipil a post epilation treatment cream...
Both Jen and Cory always do their best to
accommodate my busy work schedule when I call for an appointment. They always greet me with a welcoming smile. I also LOVE wearing my Honu Spa T-shirt to get my 10% discount on my treatments....
I love going there, and know you will too

I was referred by a friend to Honu You through one of their many "tell a friend" specials for a bolo wax with Jennifer. She uses a hardening wax, versus those painful strips that are used at many other spas. Jennifer was very professional and friendly. The atmosphere of the spa is also very relaxing. Just a short period after my wax, I came back for a couples' lomi lomi massage with Cory. Since then, I've scheduled monthly bolo wax appointments with Jennifer (I also recently got a brow wax--fantastic!), and even an occasional lomi lomi massage with Cory. I'm proud to say that Honu You is my spa home. I won't go anywhere else, as long as I'm still on the island!

Most of my spa experience has been at 4 and 5 star hotels (Banff Springs/Waikoloa) and those people have always seemed like they just go their job. Honu You Spa is fantastic because the owner has a wonderful manner and appears to have world class knowledge of her business. Always gives full and expert knowledge of the products they sell. Clean and relaxing ambiance. Highly recommended.

I received a gift card for a Honu You massage. The massage therapist was amazing! Her name was Elizabeth. The atmosphere had a very Hawaiian feel to it, you need to take your shoes off upon entering. It was smaller than most spas and very intimate. My husband purchased the gift card and he said the person at the desk was bothered when he brought our daughter in to make the purchase. It's understandable, but if the massage therapist wasn't as amazing as she was I probably would not return. I would definitely return for another massage or possibly a facial.

There is no better spa on Oahu than Honu You in Kailua. Nestled in a small professional building with its front door facing a fast food drive thru window, one might overlook this oasis of peace and care. I am so thankful that I didn?t!

My first appointment was with Jennifer for a Wow Brow. We spent no less than 15 minutes talking before I lay down for the treatment. Jennifer then measured and marked multiple times before the first strip of wax touched my skin. I have really sensitive skin and expected pain when she removed the wax and a strip of angry red skin leftover. I was pleasantly surprised. I did have some redness but was able to go out afterwards without looking like I?d just had a treatment.

During this appointment Jennifer and I also talked about the changes my skin has been going through since my husband and I moved to the islands last year. I?d been feeling like a hormonal 16 year-old the way my skin had been breaking out from all of the exposure and sunscreen; and I?d reached an age where spots and lines were becoming more noticeable and frustrating. I scheduled an appointment for a deep cleansing facial and have been going back every 6 weeks.

My face has been completely transformed. Jennifer and I sit and talk before each appointment. She asks a lot of questions regarding my daily regime and areas of concern. I never feel rushed and leave with a sense that I?ve done something good for my skin and my soul.

All of the treatments are nicely priced and you don?t have to worry about gratuity or an extra tax being added on to your bill. What you see listed is what you pay. I would highly recommend Honu You to anyone who wants more from their skin and needs help getting it.

If the appointment time you want is not available, ask to be placed on the wait list. I usually do this and get in fairly quickly. Beth at the front desk is fantstic and will do all she can to help.

Pros: location (no, really!), atmosphere, attention

Honu You rocks! I absolutely love this little slice of heaven in Kailua town. It doesn't get any better than this beautiful upscale Hawaiian-style day spa, complete with free convenient parking. From my own experience, Honu You trumps Bliss Spa in Manhattan for both massage and facials. Plus, you can't get a Lomi Lomi massage at Bliss, and when I visit Hawaii I much prefer this island experience.

From the first moment I entered Honu You, I felt embraced by the friendly courteous staff. Aloha abounds in this relaxing oasis. On my initial visit, several years ago, a thorough history was taken, followed-up by a consultation with the spa owner, Jennifer Mehau.

For my wedding two years ago, Jenn gave me my very first bikini waxing. She was extremely professional, and I was so relieved to be covered throughout the treatment. It was a stress-free and painless experience. Jenn is the best - no ka oi! And, oh yes, Honu You uses the same superior wax as Bliss.

My favorite treatment is the fabulous Power Regeneration Facial, which leaves me looking positively radiant.To keep my skin fresh and glowing, Jenn recommended that I use the Epicuren Discovery Six-Step System, and their Sunscreen SPF 45. I have become a devotee of Epicuren products; and thanks to Jenn's expert instruction, I am thrilled with the amazing results I get at home. Similar facials using Epicuren products will cost you twice as much at Turtle Bay Resort, or Spa Halekulani.

Since I am a huge fan of Honu You, I love to share their products and services with my family and friends in Hawaii. It's so simple to call in my order from the Mainland. A lovely gift certificate is elegantly wrapped, for free, and promptly mailed. My loved ones are very grateful to receive these terrific gifts which already include the tax, tip and free parking. What could be more affordable, convenient and hassle-free?

Mahalo nui loa to Jennifer and Cory Mehau!

Honu You is in the business of making you comfortable and they do a great job of it. So many times I have fallen asleep because I was so relaxed during treatments. I look forward to my time spent there, I carefully guard it in fact. I received my very first facial from them. I was scared of facials before coming to see them because I had scarring experiences with dermatologists and really appreciated Jenn and her staff's thorough evaluation of my skin and skincare regimen. They were so careful, gentle and caring. Gentle really is a key word here, I have extremely sensitive skin and they were sensitive to that, without me even mentioning it. They have also become the only people I trust for bikini waxing, talk about a sensitive subject, I've had some horribly painful waxing experiences before seeing the incredibly thorough staff at Honu You. Oh my gosh can I just say what a difference, hello down there. I get the teeny-kini waxing once a month and it's great, they use a soy based wax for my more sensitive areas, really makes a difference. Way less painful and barely any after irritation. My skin used to stay red for days, now it's barely the rest of the day I get waxed before it calms. Love Honu You, check them out or you're missing out. Oh yeah, as the previous reviewer mentioned, they do not accept tips, sounds crazy right? Well, they are amazing and include a gratuity percent already in their price so you aren't paying more or having to try and figure out what a fair tip is. Love that, cause I'm not a fan of math. Enjoy!

Pros: Easy Parking, Quiet Atmosphere, Worth every dollar, Friendly, Kind, Caring Staff

Here's why I think Honu You is the best day spa on the island (I'm a spa junky...):

~ Absolutely professional, from the front desk staff to all the therapists; unpretentious, and extremely knowledgeable...they are serious about skin care as part of a holistic lifestyle, not just a fun pampering treat, but they respect your motivations either way and maintain a high integrity.

~ Results oriented: from the quality product lines and wax they use, to their thorough consultations. I?m a waxing convert! From Brows to Brazilians, I will never shave or pluck again. (People constantly compliment my eyebrows.) I hear a lot of waxing horror stories, so I?m very picky about letting someone wax me?now I can never move because I?ve found the best! Basically, if you feel anything beside mild discomfort, you?re not getting it done properly?believe me; I?ve had it both ways. I?ve been getting facials for several years now. I started out with pretty serious acne and a desperate, resigned outlook, now my skin is smooth as silk. Jennifer has given me the tools to maintain my results?from lifestyle advice to products. (They carry Jan Marini and Epicuren, both of which are incredible. They may seem like they cost a lot, but they?re high quality, last forever, and actually work.)

I know I sound like a commercial, but seriously, I cannot say enough good things about this place! The best part about Honu You is that you can tell that the therapists genuinely love what they do (I?ve had treatments with them all.) They don?t take tips (which is refreshing in and of itself) but more importantly, I think it?s a real indication that they are performing a service to their customers for the sake of the service, not with the expectations of further compensation.
