Ok, here’s my story…I have “mature skin”, am 63 years old, blonde with fair, very sensitive skin and decades of unprotected sun bathing at the beach. The perfect storm. I had all but given up being, literally, comfortable in my skin. I spent years and a small fortune trying to sort this out. Enter, Liz. I’m no longer fighting daily inflammation and irritation. Her recommendations for products have been excellent. Finally I don’t have to worry about a rash or burn from a moisturizer or sunscreen. Her facials always give me the jump start with the deep cleaning that I need to stay on top of my sensitivity. And, let’s face it, having someone examine my face under lights is not something I looked forward to. That is, until I met Liz. I’ve made my share of skin blunders but that is not important. What is important is she wants only the best for me and is there to help me achieve that. Liz understands the importance of my “outside” but never forgets the person inside. If there were more stars, I would give them to her.

Liz is truly magical!! I can’t say enough about her professionalism, expertise and knowledge when it comes to skin care. I broke out with cystic acne outrageously a few months ago. A good friend of mine recommended Liz as she and her siblings have been going to skin deep beauty for years. After trying everything and I mean everything under the sun, I finally made an appointment with her. She worked with me patiently and had more faith in me than I did. Within 8 weeks, most of the cysts has gone and amazingly I am not left with much scars either. Liz hasn’t just changed my skin care routine but my entire lifestyle for better!! She is like a personal coach and is always available to guide you whenever in need.

Geez – I cannot get over how amazing Ecksteins Hamamelis lotion is; I used it on some problem areas & they clear within a day. Great stuff! Thanks for stocking this. – Ken S.
I first want to thank you for a “hard work” facial. It is a huge relief to feel clean and rejuvenated. I actually could see a difference in the mirror this morning-a brighter appearance, although prefer not to have my glasses on to observe increasing wrinkles these last few years. The security to know that people aren’t feeling sorry for me for hairs on my face and neck creates confidence. The massage to my arthritic feet and neck was marvelous; you have strong hands for a little lady ! How gifted and talented you are and I am so glad that I found you!
– Martha Burns
After envying my friend’s beautiful complexion for years, I finally took the plunge (and her recommendation) and went to see Liz. Rosacea has been the bane of my existence for many years but with Liz’ help it is under control now and I’ve never looked better. Now I am the one my other friends envy!
– Rose M., Mountain View, CA
I highly recommend Liz at Skin Deep! She is very knowledgeable, honest and a true professional! I have been going to Liz for my facials, waxing and product needs for over 20 years. I always know I’m going to feel good after I leave! Liz has high quality standards and manages her business well. She is very responsive to calls, confirms appointments prior and is usually always on time. Her new place is very welcoming and cozy. I appreciate her sick policy which basically asks you to reschedule if you aren’t feeling well. Thanks, Liz-you’re the best!

I just wanted to thank you for substituting product when the product I ordered was not available and to let you know that I really appreciate your personal hand written notes! I’m very happy with all of the products and will continue to order from your website in the future.
If there were 6 stars available for this fabulously talented esthetician, I would certainly award them. Basically, I started seeing Liz for facials a little over a year ago, after being diagnosed with Rosacea. As a result, I didn’t want to go by way of the RX approach for this, but chose to deal with this problem naturally.
Upon first visiting Liz, not only did she provide a wonderfully soothing & relaxing facial, but she also backed this up with suggesting helpful dietary changes as well as really educating me about good skincare; in following this advice, along with the soothingly effective facials, and use of great products at home, I now sport a super-clear complexion along with a renewed smile on my face!
And even though I have moved to the East Bay area recently, I still travel to SJ to see Liz. She’s that good!
I have been a client of Skin Deep for almost 6 years. Liz is truly amazing. She has absolutely transformed my skin. When I first started seeing her I was prone to regular and cystic acne, had minor scarring and had never had my brows or any waxing done. The scarring from the cystic acne is now nearly invisible and barely visible even up close. And NO ONE but Liz is entrusted with my brows and/or any other waxing needs.
I receive so many compliments on my skin. People are often shocked to learn my age. Without fail, I recommend Liz, her wonderful services and products. Even my mom is now a convert, not too long ago she commented that my skin looked so good and asked which makeup/products I was using. I said “Mom, I don’t wear foundation, that’s my skin!” She was stunned and immediately switched over to Liz’s extensive product line. Within a day she couldn’t believe the changes in the condition of her own skin. Over the years several friends I’ve introduced to Skin Deep now SWEAR by Liz for all their skin care and waxing needs.
It is rare to find someone so knowledgeable, professional and passionate about what they do. Liz is one of a kind! If you have any issues with your skin do not hesitate to try Skin Deep, you won’t regret it!
I have known Liz Wist since the early 1990’s and can say from personal experience that she is one of the most experienced Estheticians around.
She has a knack for making a person feel special, working one on one in a serene private setting. My skin always looks and feels wonderful.
The treatments are restorative, relaxing, and healing. I highly recommend her services and products to anyone who seeks better skin!
Liz is most certainly a true shaman of the skin! I found out about MEWIST about a year ago upon first finding out that I had Rosacea. For some strange reason, most Aesthetician’s I spoke with had little experience in working with Rosacea clients. But upon finding Liz, I knew I had discovered a wellspring of help and information with regard to Rosacea. Liz will really go the extra mile with you when it comes to educating you on good skincare, as well as making other lifestyle changes which may benefit your skin condition. In the short time I have spent coming to Liz for facials and products, I have already noticed a marked improvement with my complexion, especially the size of the pores on my nose which have tightened and reduced noticeably in size. I also wanted to mention that I absolutely LOVE the products I am using and will never purchase another drugstore over the counter product (which never worked) again! Thank you, liz!!!

“I just wanted to say thank you. You have been my faithful Aesthetician for many years now . . . since 1994 I believe. I remember the date because it was my plastic surgeon who recommended your makeup after surgery. If it covered bruises from surgery . . . it would cover everything. You are a true professional! Thanks Again!”
– Pam Brown (your KY client)
OMG you wouldn’t believe how well my skin is doing with the new wax. I love it!!
I just wanted to let everyone know that Liz has a new green wax from Australia that is absolutely amazing. My skin tends to turn pretty red after I get waxed but this new stuff kept me from getting blotchy. If you are looking for a wax that is gentle on the skin, then you should try this. I highly advise you make an appointment with Liz and try her new wax!!
– Krista, a regular Skin Deep customer
I’m getting very good result from the treatment last weekend. At the beginning it doesn’t appear to be effective, but by now most of my acne is gone and new ones haven’t started yet. I’d like to have more!
– Chun Zhang
I started going to Liz almost a year ago and at first I was pretty nervous. You never know what you are going to get these days when you ask for a Brazilian wax. Well, Liz was making sure I was comfortable the whole time. She was so precise and confident. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get a waxing service. She is pleasant to be around and always makes you feel safe and welcome. I will definitely continue going to Liz for as long as she is around. It is hard to find someone you can trust and do the job right and I am fortunate enough to have found her!!! Thanks Liz!!

I have been visiting Liz for acne facials for several months. Acne has been a problem for me for over 10 years. Liz’s series of acne facials are able to put the problem under control. It is joyful to visit Liz every time. She clearly loves her work, and is dedicated to her clients. Her holistic approach of treating acne combined with her care for clients is something I didn’t find in the treatments that I experienced before. Through the facial series, we can experiment with various ways/products that would work best for me. I’m looking forward to continuing to improve my acne.
I have known Liz for about 15 years as both a client and a friend. Liz is a true professional, with her over 32 years of experience and education in skin care she has seen it all and knows how to deal with almost any type of skin problem. Her many years of hands on experience is very evident in the way that she approaches helping people with all of their skin problems. Thanks Liz for your very real desire to help people!
After knowing Liz over 10 years, from the perspective of an employee to now a client, I would say that I know a great deal about the Skin Deep business practices. As my manager, Liz was the most memorable supervisor I have ever had. The standards that Skin Deep holds are of the top level in the industry. I am a repeat client of almost all of her esthetic services from waxing (brow, lip, arm, underarm, leg, bikini) to the wide range of Fantastic Facials she offers.
I am a 28 year old professional woman involved in high-end, graphic design consulting. My appearance means a great deal to me, both personally and professionally. I have oily skin and have suffered from acne, scars, and hormone/stress induced breakouts ever since junior high. Liz always gave me 110% of her focus when I had a question and made me feel “purified” after each and every appointment. Her level of expertise, product knowledge and professionalism are something that people rarely find in businesses these days. She has all of her processes streamlined and done for specific reasons: to offer the best products and one of kind attention through her hands-on service approach. I LOVE IT! She is the most organized, intuitive, intelligent, anti-bacterial person I have ever met. I feel lucky to have worked with her behind the scenes at Skin Deep and now on the other end as one of her clients.
For many more years to come!!

I’m a long-time client of Liz – gosh, it’s been 17 years now! – and I can’t say enough about her skill as an aesthetician. From acne control facials to bikini waxes to custom-formulated makeup, all my experiences at Skin Deep have been exceptional. Even bikini waxes involve an absolute minimum of discomfort and are quick and very well done.
Keep up the good work and thanks for all the great service!
I am really impressed with how quickly my rosacea skin condition has improved. After only one treatment from Liz, the difference is very visible. When I first decided to address my long term skin condition, I called several places in the yellow pages. Liz was the only one who could speak to me intelligently about rosacea. I’m really looking forward to the progress I’m going to make in the coming six months with Liz’s monthly treatments.

I so needed this facial today…I am so relaxed and I enjoyed it more then I ever have. Thank you! You are one of the reasons WHY I don’t want to move to Oregon . . . the others (doc, dentist) can be replace . . . you can’t. Even though I’d consider you my friend and will always be in contact – it would just be different and I would so miss these monthly appointments.
You’ve not only become my friend, confidant, but also one that have performed miracles to make me longer then my 44 years.
Dear Mary Elizabeth,
Thank you for your prompt attention to the order for Brenda Christian brow pencils . . . they just arrived.
While I have been involved in the Cosmetics business for many tears as a retailer and manufacturer, and have know men who personally used woman’s cosmetic and treatment products, these pencils are for my wife who has been using this brand of pencil for years. She was like the lady in the Dallas article. She was down to a tiny stub and couldn’t find them anywhere. So I was happy to find your site and order from you.

First I wanted to tell you how happy and great I felt after having my first facial ever! It was wonderful . . .
I was so excited for the evening to come and to begin my new regime and the same for this AM . . .
No more HOT water for me! My face feels better already.
I have traveled from Santa Cruz to San Jose to see Liz for eyebrow design and maintenance for over three years now. I make the trip every THREE weeks! I had the worst eyebrows. They were over -plucked, tweezed, crooked, too short, too thin . . . need I say more? I couldn’t believe what happened when I started to see Liz. I am literally a new person. I had never realized what a huge difference the way your eyebrows were shaped, colored, etc. could make in the way you look, and feel about yourself!
I was instructed to leave my brows alone, and let her do the work. It was really hard to stop my daily habit of over tweezing my eyebrows. I was obsessed! But through her careful guidance, I broke the habit, and they started to grow. Hair by hair they slowly came back in. Liz waxed, tweezed, trimmed, and colored them in order to give them a new life.
I am truly a different person because of the experience! I’ve changed my hair, lost weight, and started to take a closer look at the condition of my skin. I get compliments on a regular basis on my face. People say “you look great!’ What are you doing?” Little do they know, it all started with an eyebrow appointment 3 years ago that changed my life!
Thank-you, Liz !
P. S. I’ve referred several friends who also thought there was no hope for their brows!
For 15 years I have had a skin condition where I have scaly, bumpy protrusions on my face that last from 3 to 15 years each and look like I have leprosy. I began using Azulen Paste, manufactured by Dr. R.A. Eckstein, that is only sold in the U.S. by Liz (I was chasing around Europe trying to find it as I knew it was made in Germany, when I found that she had it right here in California). Using the cream has been an absolute miracle for me as I had tried dozens of things without success and the medical doctors had no help other than cortisone. The clearing works slowly and steadily and the spots dry up. Wonderful!
– Frances Strassman
My roommate has been going to Liz for years and I always complimented her on how good her skin looks. She referred me to Liz about 6 months ago and I haven’t turned back. My skin has improved dramatically and every time I go to see her it only gets better. My mother is so amazed by what Liz has done with my skin that she now wants to go and see Liz too.
Thank you Liz for being so wonderful!
