Membership has completely upped my game. One of my favorite things about Esthetician Connection is the community. We are international, diverse and highly supportive of each other. I don’t believe there is another group out there that can compare. I’m so grateful for EC and I can’t wait to move further in my career with these Amazing people.
Being an #EC member has given me an incredible glimpse at how big our esthetics world is! It’s helped me to branch out and experience new lines and modalities. So many voices sharing their experiences for others benefit is pretty amazing!
The Esthetician Connection has guided me in all the right directions, from education to promotions and marketing to just daily motivations. It is truly the most inspiring and educational group I could have found. Thank you for taking the time to create it.
Thank you Sheri for starting Esthetician Connection! It has given me the opportunity to try out so many different products in an easy, convenient and affordable way. I have even won free products a few times. I have also gained valuable knowledge about products, services and the business from members’ questions and responses. It is one of my favorite sites.
I find myself going on many times through the day because of how beneficial the group has been for me. And the other Estheticians have been nothing but kind and eager to share information we all can learn from. Thank you EstheticianConnection!
The Esthetician Connection has become my “go to place”for reviews on products and modalities….where else can you get a community of close to 30,000 estheticians willing to share their experience with products and services!!! I also love the special sells.. I have gotten great deals on many great products that I would have never known about…..and my favorite thing is the live videos at the trade shows.. makes me feel like I am right there in the middle of all the excitement!
It has personally benefited me because the items or products and even equipment I have purchased, are all items I will end up carrying in my own business that I have been working on opening, it has just been so nice… and a huge thank you to the lines that have participated in this, I know that because of their willingness to create these deals and offers with the EC- it has gained them long term accounts, at least from me.
I love this page so much! The amazing information and specials helps me stay up to date and have learned so much!!! My clients love the fun new facials I find on the specials!
The founder of the group, Sheri Flasch spends a lot of time on it and we all really appreciate the care she has put into this amazing group. She regularly posts marketing that she created for us to use on our platforms. She is constantly educating and posting promotions. I recently opened my small skincare practice and it is very difficult to do on a budget.
I am so thankful to be a part of the Esthetician Connection group!! It is wonderful to have such a supportive online community, where we all learn from and inspire one another. I also really love how EC offers fun weekly giveaways and special offers on skincare / spa items! I look forward to visiting the group everytime I log onto Facebook. Thanks for bringing us all together and for everything that you do!!
When I joined the Esthetician Connection a couple years ago, I was blown away by all of the valuable information. I remember the time Sheri would spend talking to me. She had never met me before, but it was obvious she loved what she did and wanted to share her knowledge with a community of other esty’s that shared her passion. I have learned so much about products, services and technique.
I love Esthetician Connection because I get to see the latest trends in skincare products and everyone is knowledgeable.
When I first found the Esthetician Connection, I had no idea what I had just found. It’s a treasure for esthetician! You have a huge community of professionals at your fingertips. When you’re stumped you turn to other professionals who can guide you in the right direction. I can’t even begin to tell you the product knowledge I have gained either! Every week a product is highlighted and you even have opportunities to purchase at a special rate.
Sheri Flasch I just want to thank you so much for offering these sales. It has given us the chance to try products that may or may not normally have a buy in or opening order, and has saved an incredible amount of money. I have purchased items I wanted to try, and items I had never heard of before but thanks to this page have fallen in love with.
Thank you for all the products that you introduce to us through the Esthetician Connection. I use some fabulous products now that I would have never had the chance to purchase if it was not for this group.
I am so happy to be part of the EC here on Facebook ! Really this page is a great community to keep learning more about new products and services plus the sales and giveaway are amazing!! Thanks Sheri for your dedication on EC.
The EstheticianConnection has been a complete bundle of excitement and has benefited me in so many ways. Since starting my facial services after a few years of not doing them in my business I needed guidance and a boost of memory refreshing. After joining I immediately felt my motivation rise and was able to learn about the latest products, product specials, ingredient education, and could find the answer to almost any question I needed answered just by a simple search or post.
As a newer Esthetician, the questions and responses on this page from so many knowledgeable people, have helped greatly. The deals are also pretty sweet
Esthetician Connection is a fabulous platform to learn and share invaluable information for every level of Aesthetics. As a Licensed Esthetician, I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the information shared by the Administrators and Fellow Estheticians. EC has also been wonderful in offering many specials and I have been introduced to numerous product brands. I am truly thankful for this group.
Thank you for all you all for all you do. We have been saving for quite some time to get something to be able to start out and we now have a door that has opened thanks to The Esthetician Connection. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
