Closing West Portal + Montgomery St treatment rooms. Online shop stays open!
As mentioned in the September newsletter, I will be closing my 2 skin care treatment rooms at 57 West Portal Ave as well as 520 Montgomery St as at Dec 31, 2015, however the online shop will stay open and will expand. Your skin's favourite products will still be available with free shipping!

I will therefore no longer be providing skin care treatments after December 31, 2015.

I cherish the time I had with my wonderful clients and I will always appreciate their support. I hope that my passion for real, fact-based skin care has helped many people to love the skin they're in, and treat it intelligently...rather than succumbing to seductive marketing hype :-)

Potential Delay for orders of SSC Deep + Gentle Cleanser
Due to a delay in receiving certain ingredients, we may not be able to produce SSC Deep + Gentle Cleanser until mid January 2016.

This may result in a temporary Out Of Stock situation when our current inventory is depleted. 

Any back-ordered units of SSC Deep + Gentle Cleanser will ship as soon as new inventory is received into the warehouse (expected by the first week of February 2016).

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. 
NEW online Video Consultation with Andrew
Do you need to ask a few questions about what you are using on your skin? You can now book a 15 minute video consultation with me and we can discuss your skin issues and review the products you are presently using.

Sometimes it just takes a slight change in the frequency of using a product in order to achieve your desired results. Sometimes you need to add a product and sometimes you need to eliminate one. I can help you work out what's best for your skin.  

 Skype Video Consultation with Andrew Scoular (all skin types) $25. 
Results of the Online Survey
The September Online Survey drew a small number of responses (only 18 in total) and I thank  those of you who gave me some great feedback. 1 of the 18 did not have a good experience (that makes me sad because I'm such a perfectionist in my approach to skin care). The comments were particularly heartening:
  • There was a time I felt like a monster because of my acne And thanks to Andrew I feel beautiful again
  • Love Blue Turtle Spa, love the products, love Andrew
  • He is always very nice and his service is best for me
  • I really like Andrew, his treatment is diffrent than others.  he not only make my skin not break out anymore, but he make my my skin stronger than ever. no more redness. I used to go to other clinic, the other doctor  make my skin smooth but he also make my skin more sensitive because of the peeling. I really sad to know that blue turtle spa going to clos :( andrew is my hero!
  • You were the first person to take a detailed history and not push products on me.  You showed me what you used and let me decide what to take after answering all my questions.  Too bad you won't be doing facials.  You're great.  Better than Susan Ciminelli in Manhattan.  Move here! NY NY.  :-)
  • Andrew did a wonderful job in helping my skin improve a great deal over the past year. My acne flare-ups have calmed down a lot. It is still a work in progress, but I understand this will take time. Andrew's recommendations on how to care for the face have worked really well, and the products are showing results that I haven't seen before. I am hoping I will see continued improvement to move that "somewhat" to an "absolutely!"
  • Andrew, you did what no dermatologist ever could - you made me feel like a trillion bucks!
  • Andrew and I have been working on combating some acne issues and I think we are almost there.  He has been great at working with me through a very frustrating time in my life related to this issue.  I am very grateful for his perserverance!

Interesting skin care articles you may have missed..for those who can read more than 140 characters  :-) 

See all blog entries.
Unfortunately I have not written any articles lately. It's been a difficult time for me. I will get back into writing skin care articles in the new year.

Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season....   
...and may you and your skin be equally as happy....
