Thank you for your ongoing support. In this quarterly newsletter I include the latest news at Blue Turtle Spa. If you do not wish to receive these newsletters you may unsubscribe using the link at the end of the email. There is a new discount coupon at the end of the newsletter.

New sensitive skin exfoliator 

Ideal for people with very sensitive skin who cannot use an Alpha or Beta Hydroxy Acid exfoliator. Using a pomogranate fruit extract, betaine salicilates from beets and the amazing soothing ingredient Sea Whip, this product will help you get rid of those dry dead cells on the skin's surface...gently and without irritation.  


Ultra Gentle Surface Peel 2oz $20. Available soon at the online store. 

This product is offered in addition to GM Collin Intensive Exfoliating Gel at each Blue Turtle Spa location. We are not allowed to sell GM Collin at the online store.

Price changes

With immediate effect most products have increased in price due to manufacturers increasing their prices. Half the price increase will be absorbed by Blue Turtle Spa so in general price increases will average $2 per product.
At the online shop there is always Free Shipping.  

Discontinued products

Osmosis Renew 1oz
Osmosis Calm 1oz
CV SkinCare Blemish Be Gone 1.8oz   

All are available while inventory lasts. 

Voting for Best of the Bay starts in June... 

We will send out a notice at the beginning of June inviting you to vote for Blue Turtle Spa as Best Day Spa in the SF Bay Guardian Best of the Bay vote. We hope to earn your support once again.   

The Blog and YouTube videos give lots of info  

The blog contains many articles on skin conditions (Acne, Aging, Rosacea, Sensitive, Sun Damaged), as well as Medical Treatments, Nutrition, and advice (like whether to change your exfoliator or not).  

The YouTube videos on the SkinCareTV channel provide detailed discussions on skin conditions like Acne and Rosacea, Sunsreen facts and myths, how to use a gentle cleanser, as well as the reasons why I like certain products.

The Blue Turtle Spa Facebook page will also link you to the latest skin care information.    

Referral promotion is ongoing 

It is very simple...if you refer someone new to us they get $25 off any in-spa products purchased at the time of their first treatment....and you will get $25 off your next in-spa product purchase... There is no limit to the number of $25 credits you can accumulate. Make your appointment online, mention the referral program and the person who referred you (or who you referred), and the product credit will be delivered at the time of your appointment. is where you can find all information about our services, hours of business, and available locations.

The product credit CANNOT be applied to products purchased through the Blue Turtle Spa online shop
(sorry - it is just not set up for this).

The promotion is valid through 30th June 2011 for referrals.

The product credit must be used by 30th September 2011.

Your Reviews Help Others Get To Know Us 

Reviews are key to how small businesses can be 'seen' by a wider audience and your review may just be the one to convince someone to give us a try. The most valuable online review sites are Yelp for Columbus Ave and Yelp for West Portal Ave, Citysearch, and the Baylist at (part of the SF Chronicle). All sites require that you register - sorry...but reviews of other businesses can be fun too. A BIG THANK YOU in advance...
A few recent reviews:

Andrew is the best of both worlds. He provides a wonderful relaxing facial, but also provides a wealth of information to keep your skin looking great beyond the spa.

Jan 27, 2011  Jannette C  5 star rating  'Relax and Renew'
I have very sensitive skin and Andrew must take detailed notes because I do not have any reaction to the products he uses. He always has helpful advice for me and never tries to "sell" you on anything. I recommended him to my Auntie and she thought he was wonderful too! He is one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. Love you Andrew!
We look forward to seeing you soon. Make an appointment online or call/text 415.699.8494.
