“Over the years I have had many facials but never as good as the one I received from European Experience.  I felt like my skin, as well as my whole being, was taken care of and nurtured.”     – Sheila B, Palm Springs

“I have had treatments all over the world and European Experience service is simply the best! The therapist, Sonja, has wonderful hands – definitely has a good touch. Got rid of a lot of blackheads too without making my face look all marked up. All I can say is that if you are looking for someone to do a facial or massage, you’re crazy if you don’t try her business.“ –  Mike D, Indian Wells

“Sonja Brulez, particularly when it comes to the complexities of dealing with the male skin is a sheer, intuitive genius, and has an innate gift to utilize that skill to make a man’s skin absolutely glow.  Seriously guys, Sonja is an advanced sweetheart of epic proportions, and I do not say that lightly whatsoever. She is completely comfortable working with gay men, because us guys tend to take better care of ourselves, in general, anyway and, I cannot stress this enough – she is in this business, on the cutting edge of whatever is new – she may give you some very sensible advice. Furthermore and finally I’d be shock horrified if you didn’t like Sonja. She is 100% there for your comfort, pleasure and consideration. Every single facial I have had from her was made completely relaxed, and I almost wish the experience would never end. If you have any special skin considerations, she wants to know, not to embarrass you but to give you the absolute, utmost, top-quality service – all you could possibly wish for and desire.”   –   John S, Palm Springs

“I never had a facial before but now I like it so much that it has become a monthly treat that I look forward to a lot.”   –  Linda J, Palm Springs

“As a person with very sensitive skin and the recipient of many facials in many cities and countries, I am pleased to say that the facial treatment I had at was the best ever!”   –   John G., West Vancouver, Canada

“You rejuvenated my skin and left me in a state of total relaxation!”   –  Frank T, Palm Springs

“I have had many facials over the years but the experience that Sonja offers surpasses all others. There are three things in particular I liked: 1) She doesn’t chatter during the treatment. 2) She doesn’t disappear for what seems like forever during the facial. 3) She doesn’t hard-sell products.”   –  Tina A, Palm Springs, CA

“A truly exceptional facial… so relaxing and my skin felt marvelous.”    –   Becci I, Palm Springs
