    Hi Jay--Just wanted to thank you for my FABULOUS face treatment today!! Absolutely heaven on earth to get pampered like that. My face is glowing--I have very happy skin for sure!! Thanks again!! I look forward to the next time!!
  • Jose G.
    I can't say enough positive things about my experience at your spa and how amazing my skin looks post-treatment! I'm utterly amazed at how healthy my skin looks -- I didn't think it was possible, so THANK YOU! I've taken your advice and have started taking selfies to compare my skin over the next 10 days; I already see a vast difference. My skin looks so great that Dominick is planning to book a facial next time we're in town! One quick update: Last night I cooked dinner and used a large jalapeño -- about 30 mins after eating I noticed some of the red blotches on my face start to appear, so I'm certain those symptoms are related to my diet (spicy foods, as you mentioned), which is on me to monitor (see attached pics). Thanks and I look forward to seeing you next time we're in town! Yelp review coming soon... Thanks again! Jose

    Jay! Thanks for my facial, it was awesome as usual, my skin feels great! It's always great to see you and hear your desert stories!
  • Rebecca K.
    It was a wonderful facial and really took my experience to a new level. My skin is beautiful and My wife noticed it; glowing and soft. Thanks very much and I'll see you next month.
  • Mike D.
    Jay, Thanks so much for such a great service yesterday. It was so easy and the conversation made it very enjoyable.
  • Leslie D.
    Thanks, Jay! You made my mom's first facial experience wonderful. I hope to get her in again before she heads back to Portland.
  • Pedro M.
    Thank you so much Jay. I really appreciate everything you did and have done. I feel great like always and I'm looking forward to the next waxing appointment.
  • Annalisa X.
    Hello my favourite Jay! Apologies for the delayed response but we have been in San Diego for work and I’ve just found your beautiful email. Thank YOU so much for the fabulous facial! As always it was an incredible experience and left me looking and feeling totally radiant! I can’t tell you how grateful I am Mark found you. Coming to see you is the absolute highlight of my trips to Palm Springs. I’m not sure I’ll have time for another one before I go unfortunately but if things change I’ll let you know. Looking forward to seeing you in February though! All my love and thanks, Annalisa x
  • Sylvia K.
    Thank you so much Jay💕you are the best and I’m lucky to have found you🙏 You are the best at what you do and I appreciate your talent. See you in 6 wks❤️❤️
  • Rob R.
    Thanks again for a Great facial. It’s one of my guilty pleasures and it’s nice spending time with you. See you soon. Thanks again.
  • Stacy H.
    Aloha Jay! Thank you so much for following up! I was just thinking about my session with you when I was telling my friend (female) about getting my leg waxed by you. My legs and crack as still so smooth and feels great! The wax alternative was much better than usual wax which leaves me red. Thank you for an amazing session and treatment. You made me feel comfortable. By the way I can’t believe how hot the temperature was that day! It was more comfortable in Palm Springs as my vacation went on. Til next time!
  • Patricia R.
    Thank YOU for treating me to such a luxurious facial treatment. It is so beyond anything I’ve experienced in skin care. I have booked you again for later this month. I’ll be on vacation for about 10 days starting 6/26 and wanted to be sure to be able to treat myself before I leave, versus wait until afterwards. Enjoy your Las Vegas conference, and I so appreciate that you will be getting me a sample of your product.
  • Brent B.
    Hey Jay, THANK YOU for taking such great care of us. I’ll definitely be back and will likely make trips to PS just to see you! Hope we see you around town man! I know you like to keep it professional, but would love to buy you a drink sometime!
  • Gregg F.
    Jay good morning, always great being with you!!!
  • Michael W.
    Great seeing you again, Jay and loved our chat. Definitely not so long between visits next time - see you soon!
  • Franny K.
    Hi Jay! I can't believe I am just going through my emails now to get back to you. As always, it was such lovely time spent with you and a glorious facial. I am so glad to see you are doing well and continuing to feel better everyday. Please take good care of yourself and I will hopefully be seeing you again this Fall! It snowed here yesterday here in Chicago, get me out of here!
  • Robert P.
    Jay, it was great yesterday. Thank you for the special treatment. Looking forward to seeing you in the fall, or hopefully sooner.
  • Jeff E.
    Thanks Jay, It looks good and it feels good. i also enjoyed the conversation. i will book something on line for the first week in June before we leave on our trip. not sure i can get as specific in the on line booking. so just assume it is everything we did this time minus the back. I don't think it will have gvrown enough to bother with. Thanks for the tip on the tattoo guy.
  • Ellen S.
    Hi Jay, I had a wonderful facial. Thank you. I will also send my friends to you. Could you please send me a brochure of your prices and procedures. Could you also let me know which procedure I received and the amount. My skin looks fantastic. I will be having facials regularly in the future. Unfortunately, I now have a cold, I hope you do not get it, as I got it the day after my facial. If I knew or felt like I was going to get sick I would have cancelled, I used to hate it when clients came in under the weather. I guess all the toxins are being released. Hope to see you at Paul’s celebration of life. Thanks again, Ellen.

    Incredibly professional from start to finish! Jay's office/treatment rooms are resort-spa luxurious and his facial was complete and relaxing. Kindness is, sadly, a rarity in today's world, but Jay's compassion was evident throughout my two-hour plus treatment. Enough superlatives! I intend to return soon, and try one of his massage therapist's treatments, too. Tom M. Palm Desert, CA.

    This was my first time having any sort of body waxing done. I wasn't sure what to expect, and was a bit nervous, but Jay put me at ease, and explained what I was to expect, both before and during every step of the way. Additionally, Jay's salon is very clean and comfortable. I had been expecting a little pain, but that expectation should be normal for this procedure, I think. Turns out the slight pain I experienced was considerably less than I had been expecting, and quite tolerable. I attribute this not only to Jay's expert technique, but also to the high quality products he uses. Once the procedure was over, Jay went over in detail how I should continue the skin care post-waxing. As I don't currently live in the area, Jay also helped me in my search to find a place near my home where I could get my next waxing done in a few week's time. He not only suggested questions to ask in interviewing salons in my area, but also took the time to go online with me and search out some prospects. Rest assured, though, next time I'm in Palm Springs I'll have an appointment with Jay and All About Skin. Thanks!!
  • Verdell W.
    I've been getting facials/spa skin treatments for years and none hold a candle to Men's Waxing Palm Springs. Jay is the best of the best. He takes the time to understand your personal skin concerns and chooses treatments that are customized for your situation and delivers the best possible results. I felt so relaxed and amazing afterward, and my boyfriend noted how amazing my skin looked. I'll be planning quarterly trips back to Palm Springs just to see Jay!
  • Steven W.
    Just returned from my second facial with Jay at All About Skin. The first one was amazing and this second was even better. His devotion to his craft, to making you feel comfortable, relaxed and at ease makes the session so much MORE than just a facial. You feel special, never rushed and pampered like you wouldn't believe. I've had many facials over the years, but have never felt so completely satisfied with the results - my skin looked better and better with each passing day and there were many compliments and comments as to "what had I done, I looked so good!" He uses top notch products, the space is beautifully done and Jay's professional approach, sense of humor and explanations of what he's doing and what to expect completely put you at ease. I have recommended him to others and they also raved about the experience. Thank you, Jay - and I look forward to our next appointment.

    Jay Rifkin is simply the best facial specialist ever. And I've been getting body work for over 40 years, since becoming a nationally-ranked Masters Swimmer. Deep tissue massage for me is essential with a routine of strenuous exercise. What about relaxation? Thank goodness I discovered facials, but forget the average, sweet, well-meaning young person at a resort or most salons with a whisper-touch. Jay is an artist, blending a variety of materials, textures, strokes. Incredible.
  • Nicole T.
    Jay is the best!!! I felt so welcome and so pampered. Because I was! Best facial ever!!! So much so that I did not feel the need to p it makeup on after. Can t wait to go back!!
  • Matt S.
    I've been going to Jay for well over a year now and he really is the best skin/grooming care professional in Palm Springs -- hands down! I highly recommend him. My only regret is that I didn't leave this review sooner here on Yelp ...
  • Jace B.
    Not a virgin waxee, I did my research and went to Jay. Superb in every way! Fantastic atmosphere, jay is the consummate professional.
  • Matthew L.
    This was my first time getting waxed and I was nervous going in and didn't know what to expect. I went to see Jay to get my back, chest, stomach, and shoulders waxed. Jay talked me through everything and what to expect. He was very knowledgeable and kwas able to answer all my questions! Everyone needs to come and see Jay if youre looking to get waxed! Thank you Jay for my waxing experience! I will be back!
  • Cal P.
    I received the "Gentlemen's Facial" as a gift from a friend that can't say enough about Jays work at All About Skin. I have had many facials and other spa treatments in my life but this one was by far the BEST EVER... it blew me away how skilled and meticulous Jay was throughout the entire treatment. I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone that seeks quality services. I will be back, and will for sure be giving gift certificates to those special friends mine. Thanks again Jay for making my experience so perfect!
  • Gordon S.
    Jay runs a clean, efficient, professional salon and as a first time (nervous) waxee, he was great at explaining the procedure. He is entertainingly chatty throughout which helps distract from the brief sudden stings and is always attentive to how you are doing during the process. A thoroughly successful visit. I'll be back. Thanks Jay
  • Rick O.
    I had my first waxing treatment from Jay and he is simply the best!! He explained the whole process and answered all my questions and put me totally at ease. Prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere relaxing. If your looking to get a waxing treatment look no further than Jay you will be glad you did. Jay is a true professional and I will be seeing him for all my skin care needs...thanks, Jay

    If your thinking of getting waxed then look no longer. Jay is hands down the best I have ever been too. Exceptionally meticulous. Discusses each step so there are no surprises. There was zero pain... Had nose, ears, bvrow,shoulder, and back done in one setting. His technique is flawless and you can tell from start to finish he really care about his clients and wants you to be 100% pleased with the end results. Jay has earned a client for life.
  • Garret O.
    I have had many waxing sessions over the years and All About Skin in Palm Springs has been the best I have EVER experienced. It has spoiled me in such away I won't want to go anywhere else, EVER. Clean premises, warm, friendly and welcoming owner, Jay. Can't wait for my next visit. Prices are great too.
  • Gary O.
    Jay, thanks for the awesome waxing today. You have spoiled me, for I don't think I will ever be happy with anyone else ever again. Hope too see you again soon when I am in Palm Springs again. I just wish it could be every six weeks or so. Too bad Pennsylvania is so far away. Looking forward to seeing you again.
  • Joey P.
    Without a doubt this was not only a relaxing facial, but my skin looks amazing. I had a photo shoot for a business magazine and the photographer asked if I went to a make up artist. I said NO, I went to get a facial 2 days prior and he said my skin looked great. NO photo shopping necessary. An incredible experience from start to finish. Thank you Jay
  • Kev K.
    Jay is a true professional and a skilled technician. His experience and attention to detail will have me coming back again!
  • Tom W.
    Fantastic experience. Called last minute for a back waxing appt. Jay luckily had a cancellation and worked me in. East to find, Jay was knowledgeable, skilled and fun to talk to. Beautiful job on my back and gave me great guidance on post waxing skincare. Thumbs up!
  • Evan S.
    Jay is the best! Went for a eyebvrow wax and keep getting compliments from my family about how great they look. Since I am a guy with a thick eyebvrow that is a main feature of my face, I was nervous about getting the waxing. Jay gave me reassurance and I've already gone back one and will plan on using him for all my skincare needs while I am in the valley.
  • Tim G.
    Jay gives amazing facials. Like I think ever experienced. I get facials from him and I give them away as gifts all the time Laverne does mani pedi there and she is amazing. She has helped me repair my feet from pretty heavy duty cracks. She is thorough and always tries to accommodate my schedule whenever she can. I have found that most pedicure places aren't use to men's feet so she is really special and understands the different gender feet and what problems they may have.
  • R V.
    What a professional! Went for waxing...down below...Jay made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. Not that I thrive on having hair ripped from my body, but I'm actually looking forward to my next "session". It was virtually painless, or as close as you can get.
  • Steph M.
    This facial was exactly what I needed!! After coming to Jay's office from a crappy massage I had at a "high end" spa, I was glad I'd decided to separate my facial service from my massage service. Jay created a custom solution for my skin after first doing a detailed diagnostic on it, including understanding my current regiment, medications and studying it closely. He's a great conversationalist and explained how he ended up with his third career in skin care. He's gentle, thoughtful, and intelligent. An hour and more flies by quickly when you're with him! The kicker is how much he cares about his clients! Upon returning home, I received a hand written card from him referencing conversations we had! Man, Jay is next level on everything. I cannot wait to see him again when I come back to Palm Springs!
  • Jeff A.
    I've been getting waxed all the way from my neck down to the middle of my thighs for years and yes "ouch" is the right word to describe my previous experiences. Jay took his time, did it right and I felt less pain then a band-aid getting ripped off. He did a great job, was very professional and I was so relaxed that I that I was yawning on his table. I will definitely return for all of my skin needs.
  • Dean F.
    In simple terms-Jay is the best. Just walking in the door of the salon brings a sense calm into your world. Service is fantastic and fairly priced.
  • Dave B.
    I have nothing but great things to say about Jay at All About Skin, Super personable, very professional and highly skilled at what he does, would definitely recommend him to anyone.
  • Brandon H.
    Jay was absolutely amazing!!! I went to Jay for waxing during my visit with friends in Palm Springs last weekend. I hadn't had a waxing in years and was very nervous initially, but Jay was very friendly and knew techniques to help comfort me during what may seem like a very awkward procedure. Not only did he do an amazing job on my wax, but he gave recommendations for places to visit during our visit in Palm Springs. Words cannot express my satisfaction with Jay and his services, and he left me and my best friend's bottom looking amazing! I definitely will be visiting Jay when I return to Palm Springs next year!
  • Dan B.
    Jay was GREAT! Easy to talk with and pass the time while he waxed my back! Great job on the back and a great conversation as well!! Thanks Jay
  • Daniel K.
    Jay and his beautiful salon are top notch. The setting is very serene, clean, and professional. I've hand waxing services performed at other salons, but none compare to All About Skin. Jay is extremely professional, meticulous, and caring; he explained everything beforehand and provided detailed instructions for after-care. I am extremely pleased with the results and will definitely return for additional services.
  • Jason B.
    Excellent service and results. Jay explained the process and was very personable. He shared tips for aftercare and provided come complimentary process. I followed up and had the same experience on a second appointment and will continue to make them in the future.
  • Rob D.
    Best atmosphere! Best service! Best follow up! When was the last time you had someone send you a "Thank you" for using their services? Return visits assured!
