"After being a client of Gunilla's for 6 years, my skin has NEVER looked so fabulous. Your products make my skin look dewy, youthful, and full of life. I do think that the high quality, organic ingredients in ISA ALEX Skincare products truly comes through in how that transforms the skin."
-Linda M. San Francisco, CA, Healthcare Software Sales

"I've been going to Gunilla for around 3 years now and I have to say, she is a Danish blessing sent from heaven. The "treat" to myself every month is getting the signature facial from Gunilla. But I've realized it's not just another spa procedure. It's necessary maintenance for bettering my skin from not only the present harsh realities of sun/daily wear, but to the future reality of aging and the necessity to better my skin's condition."
-Elizabeth M. Novato, CA

“I've been trusting my skin care to Gunilla for nine years, after years of experience with different aestheticians. Unlike the majority of people in this field, Gunilla sees an individual's skin not as a problem to attack, but as a system which can be harmonized with the right touch, gentle products, and most of all, with genuine care. As a result, my skin has healed considerably in terms of appearance and volatility, and I have grown into someone who no longer feels defined by my skin, but integrated with it. Gunilla is extremely knowledgeable and intuitive. If, like me, skin is a health care issue for you, you would choose wisely to call Gunilla.

"Thank you for the excellent facial oil massage demonstration. In just six days of doing it nightly, my skin is doing much better! Not as flaky and the tone has improved!"

- Kit M. (Petaluma, CA)

"Aside from being a wonderful person, Gunilla is the best esthetician I have ever been to. She uses natural products and tailors her facials to each person's needs and concerns. She makes her own products in small batches with natural and clean ingredients, I love using her oils and face cleanser at home! I have been seeing her for 2 years and my skin feels more plump, hydrated and bright, she's smoothed my fin lines and even my melasma and dark spots have faded. People often compliment my skin and it is all thanks to Gunilla's magic!"

- Marie V., (New York, NY)

"Gunilla's products are truly one of a kind. Living in high altitude and working with animals, I need something that properly hydrates my skin without making me look greasy. Gunilla has put together the perfect skin care line. I am extremely picky when it comes to clean ingredients and how they feel on my skin. She has put together the perfect oil. It absorbs wonderfully into my skin, I feel hydrated all day AND you can tell she only uses the best ingredients with the perfectly balanced smell. Thank you for keeping me looking youthful."

- Petra S. (Mancos, CO)

"Gunilla has helped me create a simple skincare ritual using her oils, which I call liquid gold. People often compliment my skin. I highly recommend her services and products especially if you are looking for a more natural/ holistic approach."

- Landra E. (Athens, Greece)

"Where do I begin... First off, Gunilla is the best esthetician in the Bay Area. She gets to know your skin so you get the results you want! Secondly...she creates her own facial and body oils that deliver amazing results - even if you can't see her for facials. I have known Gunilla for 13 years, and her facials and oils are the BEST. The Hydrate oil gets my skin glowing again. The Soothe oil eliminates any redness and irritation. The Rejuvenate oil is my anti-aging friend. AND, the Calm body oil does just that...calms your skin for a peaceful nights sleep!"
