I've been coming to Pure + Simple for years and have always loved their facials. I recently had the Aquabrasion treatment but did not love it as much as the facials. I felt my skin was rather dry afterwards and the treatment only lasted 25 mins long, from the approximate 45min length advertised. I will stick to the usual facials going forward.
