Love this place, their products, and the people! I haven't had really "bad" acne since I was a teen, but even in my 30's I would have regular breakouts and consistent small blemishes all the time. The first time I went in, I met with Lauren. She's the nicest, sweetest person you'll ever meet, and is wonderful at making you feel comfortable and at ease. She took the time to educate me on the various factors contributing to my acne, and developed a regimen just for me. Their products are great. I didn't think I'd like putting so many different things on my skin, but none of them feel heavy, and I could see a difference within the first few days of using them. Absolutely worth it if you've ever struggled with acne of any severity.
I started my Skin+ journey about four months ago in June. At that point, I had tried just about every thing on the skin care market except for Accutane. I had been through it all and nothing fully worked for me. In June, I was also going through one of the worst skin phases I had ever been through. At that time, Carly started training Lauren, and I primarily see Lauren. I could not recommend them enough! They are the first people I have seen who are genuinely interested in your lifestyle habits and routines so that they can pinpoint the problem. They listen to you so that they can figure out which products/lifestyle changes/treatments are right for you! Also, Lauren is genuinely one of the sweetest people I have ever met!! She is so encouraging, caring, and thoughtful. She constantly tells me how proud she is of me even though I think it is her who has made all the difference in my skin! Fighting problematic skin can be a tough journey but Lauren's support has made it amazing! I am so thankful that I came across this place and these people!! Life changing!!!
I spent 10+ years dealing with adult acne -- it was the worst and I tried everything and spent thousands of dollars over the years on every skincare product you could imagine. I constantly had a zit or two on my face -- most of the time they were large, stubborn, cystic acne. Carly was able to diagnose my skin remotely (via phone/pictures) and the results have been amazing! I started using Carly's products August 2016, and I have not had one skin issue since then and my skin has been 100% clear, even through a pregnancy. Carly is AMAZING at what she does, and I'm so thankful for her products/help! I cannot say enough good things about Austin Skin Plus!
