“Zina is a phenomenon. No one else I’ve tried measures up to her experience and expertise. She has a pharmaceutical background that sets her apart from most people in the beauty industry. Her approach is not only cosmetic, but also clinical and scientific. She is accustomed to working with a wide range of skin types, and her breadth of experience makes her just priceless.”
“In terms of value for money, Aphrodite blows me away. The salon has the most state-of-the-art equipment I’ve ever seen, uses high quality, all-organic products, and has a staff that’s really experienced in skincare. But the prices don’t reflect that.”
“I've been a loyal client to Zina at Aphrodite Skin Care for over 10 years now. She has taken years off my face. Her expertise has kept my complexion not only perfect, but extraordinary. When I first came to her I suffered from sun damage, melasma, early wrinkles and severely dry skin. My skin is smooth and lifted now, the tone is clear and even. My favorite treatment used to be the Oxygen facial (and I still love it), but my new favorite is her cell therapy treatment. The results are unbelievable. The closest thing to a facelift without going under the knife! I'm 39 years old and no one can believe it, I can't believe it myself. I haven't gotten these compliments since I was in my 20s. I can't recommend Zina enough. No matter what skin issues you may have, she'll make you look like the most beautiful version of yourself.”

“Skin Care you hope to find! Just try it. Don’t think about it, do not hesitate. Try. I don't want to copy all enthusiastic comments of my predecessors, though all it is true. Aphrodite was not my first experience of skin care and I was pretty skeptical about it. But the result is fascinating! No break-outs, smooth skin, beautiful color. But the most exciting for me is that my fine lines all are gone! It's not just long lasting result. It is real transformation. After Zina's treatment I don't worry any more about:
• winter: cold, wind - no break outs or peeling
• summer: heat - no break outs, no black/white heads
• sweating (I workout every day) - no break outs or irritation
• foundation or powder - I just don’t need it!
• my periods - no breakouts
• bright light - no fine lines can be seen
• smiling a lot - no fine lines forming
• going out for a date :) - smooth skin, plain color without makeup, silky touch, no break outs,
NO FINE LINES.
I am 32. And isn't it cool when there are 8 people at the table in the restaurant and I am the only one who has to show ID to prove I'm 21 :) THANK YOU ZINA.”

“Zina gives the most amazing facials. The Oxygen facials are excellent but the facials that beat all are the Placenta facials. I had a series of Placenta facials initially and now once a month for maintenance and my skin has never looked better. The Oxygen facial is great for plumping out the skin but the Placenta goes one further and changes the tone and color of the skin to one of health and wellbeing. Zina is amazing at facial massage (not to mention arm and hand massage) and all of this is included in the Placenta facial. Zina will spend as long as it takes to repair any damage during visits and every visit is pure luxury. The Placenta facial is definitely recommended if you are looking for beautiful and healthy skin.”

“I have never written a review for a service provider before now. As this website directed me to Aphrodite Skincare I feel I should write about my experience in the hope that others will find it beneficial.
As a self-confessed beauty junkie I am always on the lookout for new products and treatments. Although I try to be as gentle as possible with my skin, due to a combination of genetics and environmental factors I have numerous skincare issues. These range from sensitivity, rosacea, acne, dryness and eczema. While on holidays in New York some weeks ago I decided to book an appointment for a facial with Zina at Aphrodite Skincare. Thanks to the reviews I had read previously I was so excited and I wasn’t disappointed.
Zina is truly gifted. Within five seconds of meeting her I trusted her judgment entirely. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable but also the most diligent, intuitive, gentle esthetician I have ever come across. I have spent years in salons and dermatologists offices, spent thousands on miracle products and treatments and no one has given me the skin I wish for but Zina. She is so passionate about her work, and so caring about skin, I am so happy to have found her. She goes above and beyond the call of duty. For example, the special homemade skin cream she gives her clients following a treatment is such a nice touch, she even gave me a larger pot of it to take home on the plane. As per Zinas recommendation I had the oxygen facial, my skin felt and looked amazing following the treatment and I have continued with the skincare advice I was given since I returned home. My skin continues to reap the rewards. Don’t waste your money on chemist or department store products, visit Zina who will advise you on treatments and products best suited to your skin. It’s worth the investment.
I realise this sounds more like a character reference than a salon review but on visiting Zina I am just blown away by her passion and commitment to her work. I hope everyone gets to experience her magic, she’s an inspiration. Your mind, body, spirit and skin will truly thank you for it. Thank you so much Zina, I look forward to visiting you on my next trip to New York.”
