Melissa is awesome! Her skincare knowledge can’t be beat!
I have been a loyal client for nearly 10 years and my skin has been flawless ever since. If you need help with skincare product selections, facials, or waxing I urge you to contact Melissa Lekus ASAP! You will not be disappointed.

I highly recommend Melissa Lekus skincare.
Prior to using Melissa I didn’t worry about washing or moisturizing my face other than occasionally using whatever I had in the shower. As I aged, my skin started to look dull and wrinkly. I approached Melissa and started to use her consulting services. Since I don’t live in LA, we discussed my skin type, routine, etc by internet. Melissa recommended products and shipped them to be my mail. I was able to discuss with her what I liked and didn’t like. She worked with me without judgement and shared her extensive knowledge. We finally hit on the perfect routine and my skin has never looked better. I highly recommend Melissa’s services.

At mid-century, I wanted to be smart about it… what skin products were best for me at this stage of my life?
She had me fill out a form about my current products, my concerns and my desires. Then, she did all kinds of chemistry research. Her “report” back to me was so comprehensive and thorough. It showed me exactly which products would accomplish my goals, and we discussed why. It was fantastic!! Finally, out of the confusion came clarity.
Currently, I am in the process of transitioning over to her recommendations. As each product runs out, I purchase another from her list. (She even found products in my price range and told me where online to purchase them!) I really love that she doesn’t work for a specific brand. Her recommendations are based on rightness, not commission. I recently tried my first two products and love them!! Melissa is a fabulous skin/product resource if you want to get the real scoop on skincare, your products and the best outcomes for your skin. An absolute professional. I highly recommend.

Melissa came highly recommended from a friend as a superb facialist, and she did not disappoint!
I’ve been freaking out for the past six months about my face and how old and terrible it was looking. I had revamped my nightly and morning face cleaning routine several times and just couldn’t figure out what to do.
The facial was incredibly relaxing, and Melissa answered all of my slightly insane questions with patience and expertise. She is highly knowledgeable, funny, and best of all, she caters each facial to whatever problems you may be having. She also really drilled into me NOT TO TOUCH MY FACE! I’ve felt much better ever since and will definitely return.

Melissa’s custom facial makes me feel so pampered without spending my whole paycheck!
I also love cuddling with her sweet dogs before and after the facial 🙂

It was not always sunshine and rainbows with me and Melissa Lekus Skincare Consulting, but now I feel like I can’t live without her.
Let me explain: when I met her I was a disheveled, young, broke creative whose idea of a “skincare regimen” was splashing water on my face and mimicking those Neutrogena commercials on TV. Maybe some Cetaphil on a good day, that works, right? I have a distinct memory of feeling uncomfortable while she peered at my skin under a bright light….I mean…gawd wasn’t she a little close?
But, she made me laugh. I decided to come back, first occasionally, then more often. I began to see that there was perhaps more to life than making excuses. I sought her advice, nay, her approval even. Melissa Lekus knows her stuff. If she can work with me, the stubborn stick in the mud, she can transform you and your face. The thing that sets Melissa apart from others is that she’s not going to sell you some crap you don’t need. She’s got experience with tons and tons of products, people, places, skintypes, and other people’s lame sales pitches. She will give you genuinely specialized guidance on what works for YOU. She’s not going to push marked-up products on you or rush you out the door to make room for someone else.
I leave feeling special and pretty, now come on, how often does that happen in LA? Everywhere else I’ve been just leaves me uneasy (I “think” I need this…do I need this?) and wishing I came here instead.

I will definitely be visiting Melissa again. She’s a pro, funny, and no nonsense! I highly recommend her services.
I’ve had a few facials in my day, mostly as a result of receiving spa gift certificates, but when it comes to beauty regimens, I’m hella lazy. I’m content to wash my face with cleanser at night and slap on some sunscreen during the day. That said, I live in LA, a town where it’s pretty much a felony to get old, and I’ve had more trips around the sun than I care to count. I figured now might be a good time to try to salvage my pores before the real sagging begins. I made an appointment with Melissa Lekus on the recommendations of several friends.
When I arrived at Melissa’s, she directed me to park in her driveway so as to avoid a street cleaning ticket! That’s when I knew I was in good hands. I was greeted by two adorable pups and quickly shown to a lovely spa-style room with chill music and candles. Melissa then spent the next 75 minutes working some magic on my face. There was cleansing, toning, exfoliating, scrubbing, some kind of electrical stimulation wand deal, and by the time it was over, no joke, my skin felt like soft suede. I did just read in another review that Melissa advises clients not to touch their faces and let me just say, that’s really hard to do when your skin feels like SUEDE.
