Jill G.- Burlingame, Ca 2016
Gina and her team at Rituals have literally changed my life! Everytime I visit I feel renewed from the inside out. Whether I'm having my makeup done, a facial, a micro-current, or just a quick wax, I always feel special when Rituals is a part of my day.
Helen B.- Half Moon Bay, Ca 2016
Gina is simply the most knowledgeable, caring, and skilled esthetician I have ever experienced. The whole environment is infused with calm and healing. After my first micro-current treatment with her my eyes lifted and the skin on my jaw was tighter and firmer. Also, her custom facials leave my skin feeling radiant and glowing, even my fiance comments on my skin! She is living proof that beauty begins from within. Thank you Gina! Can't wait for my next visit. ALSO, I just had my make-up done by Casey and loved it!
Robin L.- San Mateo, CA 2015 Sudatonic or gin and tonic? Well, gin doesn't really agree with my taste buds, but a Sudatonic Body Treatment by Gina at Rituals definitely does! It's a hot body wrap that detoxes and melts away pounds (literally) as you lay there in a perfect slumber sweating out all of those toxins in your body. This heart warming treatment is super essential especially after a fun-filled, Godiva eating holiday season. Get your groove on with Gina!

So glad I found Rituals! I've been looking for another spray tan location as the person I used before went out of business. I was skeptical to try another brand, however this one is even better than the one I was used to. Although it's not quite as deep of a tan, it lasts longer, fades more naturally and it even smells great. Arianna does a fantastic job and I couldn't be happier with the results. It feels like an instant vacation.
Rachel E.- Montara, Ca 2015
I'm beyond satisfied with the waxing treatments I have gotten here. Esthetician Arianna does gentle waxing and is also such a doll. The care that this salon takes with their clients is immense. I continue to go here and rave to all my friends about their services!!
Hunny B.- San Mateo, Ca 2015
I strongly recommend Arianna! I came in to get an extended bikini wax and I had an awesome experience! She was very sweet, gentle, very friendly and she did an amazing job! I am definitely coming back!
Nicki M.- Burlingame Ca 2015
I just saw Arianna for my brow wax. I'm newer to the area and it's taken a long time to find a great brow Waxer. Arianna listened to me and my concerns; yes I'm high maintenance about my brows, in my opinion brows make the face. She did an amazing job and I LOVE my brows!
I'm so happy that I found Rituals and I look forward to getting a facial there soon.
Joy C.- Pacifica, Ca 2014
This place is so adorable and the women who work here are so sweet and inviting. I was offered yummy lemon water upon arrival and shown around the beautiful facility. I received 2 services here since discovering this quaint and lovely salon! I had a long lasting, beautiful bronze spray tan, and one AMAZINGLY RELAXING AND EFFECTIVE facial (done by Arianna). I must say, I have never had such smooth feeling skin and immediate results as I had by coming here. My skin was glowing for days.. Arianna is very knowledgeable about my skin type, and told me what I needed, because I really had no idea what to do about my troublesome skin. Usually I hear some rehearsed, "mumbo jumbo" from the Estheticians who I don't even think aren't even looking at my skin, honestly. But She actually talked for me beforehand and gavce me useful education about my skin and suggested how we proceed. She guided me through the steps, so I knew what to expect and advised me on how to care for my skin at home (The do's and dont's). She is very passionate about skincare (and waxing). And at the end...when I asked her to unclog my pores... boy did she! She got every single little blackhead that had been lingering in my face for months (ew I know). So.. You definitely get what you pay for here and leave feeling refreshed and brand new. I am definitely looking forward to making them my go-to place.
Jennifer B.- San Mateo Ca 2013
Gina is amazing!
I've never had a facial before, and my boyfriend spoke very highly of Gina. He bought me a gift card and took me here as a gift. The moment I walked into the spa I got such a warm and relaxed feeling. Gina is so kind and extremely knowledgeable. She made sure I was comfortable and was very thorough on what she was doing, and what products she recommends. I had such a pleasant experience, and I've been going to her ever since. My skin has never felt and looked better! I highly recommend this place :)
Stephanie C.- San Mateo, Ca 2013
Amazing spa for a wax! This salon is tucked in the back of a little plaza, so you won't see it unless you found it online or through a friend. I absolutely LOVED my experience here. They were so welcoming and i walked into such a calm atmosphere. I called the day of, and they were able to squeeze me in same day for a 5:15 appointment. The place is clean, and very comfortable feeling. They even provide a numbing spray and a cleansing wipe for you. Dawn was very thorough and made sure I was comfortable. Very easy to talk to. Will definitely refer my friends here and coming back here myself!
O.D.S.- Burlingame, Ca 2012
Small, very cozy place. Gina makes me feel welcome and relaxed the minute I open the door. Great Le Mieux products. My oily skin turned into normal in two weeks with the regiment of two serums in the AM and PM. The blotting paper I used for years is now sitting unused in the drawer of my work desk.
The facial / micro currents combination is a must try. Gina has the most skilful hands and I never break out after her facials. Oh yes, and she is the only one who can do my eyebrows. They look natural and somehow much better than they really are :)
Annette E.- Millbrae, Ca 2010
My mom and I have been going to Gina for years and she is the absolute best! She is very friendly, great customer service, and she’s the best person to talk to if you want tips on how to take better care of your skin! I recently bought a face moisturizer she recommended to me by Le Mieux and I love it. Definitely recommend seeing Gina; I even drive an hour to come home some weekends from college just so I could get my eyebrows waxed there!
Megan W.- Burlingame, Ca 2010
I looooove Gina! I found her on yelp when I was looking to get a few facials before my wedding. On my first visit she gave me her "Four Layer Facial" to hydrate my skin and get it ready for my big day. It was amazing and so was Gina! She got my vibe that I just wanted to relax so she wasn't overly chatty which I appreciated. I loved her so much that I sent my mom, sister and family friend to her as well. They loved her too! I went to her a few weeks later for waxing and another facial. Another perfect experience! On this visit she listened to me vent about wedding planning and all the stress that goes with it. I left totally relaxed and glowing for my wedding! Gina is an amazing aesthetician and human being. She is so sweet and caring, and really wants to make people feel good about themselves. I can't wait to go back!
Arantxa A.- Daly City, Ca 2010
What can I say that hasn't already been said about Gina? I started seeing Gina a few months ago to get my skin in tip-top shape for my upcoming wedding. Whenever I leave her place my skin is glowing and I've noticed a real improvement in the overall look and feel of my skin.
She will also be doing the makeup for me and my wedding party. She is amazing at it and knows which colors will best compliment your skin tone/eye color. Gina is the best!
Johnny A.- Burlingame, Ca 2010
Looking to get pampered or your skin is a little dry? Gina at Rituals Aesthetic is the best, she is the only one who touches my skin and I am a man, make your appt soon and you will know what I am talking about.
Michelle D.- Woodland Hills, Ca 2008
I was 19 when I first started seeing Gina. She has seen me through the weirdest changes in my skin. I started seeing her for waxing and, with her, realized that soft wax and strips are too hard on my skin. Gina introduced me to the hard green wax, which works wonderfully! She made me grow out my eyebrows when I started seeing her so she could reshape them...who knew I had the wrong shape going! She's meticulous (almost anal) when it comes to the face...she could/should be the next Anastasia.
I also get the occasional facial and peel from Gina, which are fabulous. I leave there completely relaxed and with my skin glowing!
Gina rarely raises her prices and they are very competitive throughout the bay area.
Angela B.- Burlingame, Ca 2008
When I first met Gina I had pretty sever adult acne. I suffered for five years or so. I used ProActive, Murad, Laser and every other tip I could read about or hear about. I changed my pillowcase nightly, washed with fresh washcloths daily and changed my diet and drank plenty of water. Nothing worked until I met Gina and she miraculously changed my complexion forever. I get compliments daily on my clear skin and I feel like my face better represents who I am. Thank you, Gina for changing my life!
Shadia H.- San Francisco, Ca 2008
Gina is by far the absolute best in skin care and waxing! I have been going to Gina for waxing for at least two years now and will NEVER go elsewhere! I have tried many other places for waxing including high-end spas and nothing compares to Gina! Not only is Gina sanitary and clean, but she is also the most knowledgeable about the best waxing techniques. And she is very reasonably priced too! It can't get any better!
