About

Welcome to my spa in the woods in beautiful Litchfield, Connecticut. Where I want you to leave your worries and stresses at the door, come in and get pampered.

My Training
I’m a Medical Aesthetician since 1990, NYS Licensed Aesthetician since 1982, and a NYS Cosmetologist since 1981. In NYS you have to pass both a clinical exam and a written to become licensed.
I’ve been in business for over 30 years. My experience includes working in a variety of different high end day spas and medical spas, and a former owner and operator of two skincare salons.
During my employment and training at South Nassau Dermatology in New York, working closely with Dr. Russell Cohen, world renown dermatologist and Professor of Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC. While working their my job was clinical dermabasion, acid peels and deep cleaning acne facials at this practice. My specialty is treating clients with acne and deep pore cleansing, I also specialize in resolving issues for skin with rosacea and very irritated sensitive skin.
Some of the skincare companies I have trained with are Image Skincare, Christine Valmay, Sothys, Avance, Jurlique, Repechage, Clarins, Eve Taylor Aromatherapy, and two Medi-Clinical companies.
Living in Connecticut for almost 16 years. I needed to do something and started Robin’s Nest Skincare, 10 years ago. I have created a place for you to get pampered, relax and leave feeling refreshed..
I’ve been working with chemists, using my label and their products since 1990. I was introduced to Image Skincare from a former colleague and medical aesthetician, I was immediately sold. My clients gave me a little resistance at first.. but as you see in the testimonials they love the line and are very satisfied.
I can’t wait to help you with all of your skincare needs.

What Clients Are Saying

  • Robin is such a talented and knowledgeable esthetician! She always takes the time to really listen to her clients and make them feel comfortable. I trust her recommendations completely and in the 25 years I have known her, she has helped keep my complexion glowing! Her understanding of my skin also extends to waxing treatments - despite having sensitive skin on my legs and a very irregular growth pattern, Robin's expertise has ensured that my legs stay clear and smooth. I highly recommend Robin - not only is she a fantastic skin care specialist, she is also a wonderful person!

  • I've know Robin Poole for about 10 years now. From your first visit to your most recent, you know that Robin cares deeply about skincare. She also cares about her clients by providing you the most excellent skincare therapy. Robin has provided me the most excellent facials, and brow tinting! She is top notch!

    Melinda
  • To say that I look forward to my facial at Robin’s Nest all day is an understatement.  The experience is a lovely one!  From the moment I walk into the spa in her home, I begin to relax ~ Robin’s cheerful greeting, the esthetic's in the room, the soothing music, the low, warm lighting ~ it all combines to create an atmosphere that literally causes the stress of the day to leave my body.  The facials are fabulous, and I leave with my skin feeling rejuvenated.  As a bonus, Robin’s education and experience give her a unique perspective to notice problem areas with skin.  She cautioned me to watch a spot on my face; as a result, my dermatologist removed a pre-cancerous skin spot when I pointed it out.  Also, as a New York and Connecticut certified aesthetician, Robin is qualified to remove milia, those annoying bumps that had surfaced on my cheeks and chin as I aged.  Thank you, Robin, for your knowledge and skill in making my skin glow!

  • Love the Treatment!  I'm so happy with the Image Oxygen Facial 02 Lift.  It has made my skin look so dewy and more alive.  It was very effective with exfoliating my skin, now it looks fresh and smooth. I'm also very glad I purchased the Post Treatment Kit.  I love what the Vit. C serum does.  Thank You Robin!  

    Deborah
  • Many years ago I moved to a new town named Babylon. It was there that I got to meet Robin. I had developed acne at 24 years old, after never having skin issues in my life. I made an appointment for a facial with her, and my life changed. Her products were unbelievable, her advice about nutrition and what causes acne was spot on, and her personality was amazing!!! We developed a beautiful friendship. I continued going to Robin for many years. The only reason I stopped seeing her was because she moved!! I have never been able to find another person to fill her role. I can't say enough about what an asset she is to any company. I have often secretly wished she would move back to Long Island! Very selfish of me, but that is how much I miss her, and her facials. Thank you for this opportunity.

  • I just had another Signature Peel Facial today with Robin.  My face looks and feels great!  Robin is so professional and knowledgeable about the Image Skincare products. Just love her!

    Ellen
  • "Youth in a Bottle" ...... "I must say, I LOVE Image Skincare products. Since I have been using the Image Max line of Skincare, my skin has totally changed. Robin Poole, our licensed aesthetician, has chosen that particular line of Image for me after evaluating my skin and she was right on! We have a full line of Image products at our Center. They are second to none. Set up a Facial with our wonderful aesthetician, Robin. Robin has over 35 years of experience. She will make your skin glow!

  • I had a wonderful O2 facial with Robin.  My skin is still glowing.  I had tight muscles in my neck and head, and Robin gave an incredible head/neck massage.  Boy did she loosen those tight muscles.  Her fingers worked magic. Thank you, Robin such a caring person.

    Donna
  • I've had bad skin and always cover it up with make-up. I've tried so many different products over the years but nothing worked to correct, until now! I'm so happy I found Robin! Since having a signature facial and just recently a lift facial my skin has been so much better! I've even left the house without makeup which never happened before. Her knowledge of different skin types and solutions with Image Skincare products has made such a difference. I highly recommend Robin's Nest Skincare!  

    Lisa
  • I moved to Connecticut 1 1/2 years ago and didn't know anyone. I had left my hairdresser and esthetician behind, and was sure I wouldn't find anyone as good as they were or anyone I could afford here in Connecticut. I started inquiring and someone recommended Robin. I knew I would like her from the minute we met. After getting my first facial from her I knew she was one of the best. She has had years of experience and you know that after you get your first facial from her. It is wonderful and I go to her every four weeks for an hour of Bliss.

    Caroline
  • Robin is an amazing Esthetician! I had been looking for someone who was knowledgeable and professional in the area for over a year. I had several consultations with different facialists but it always seemed as if they were selling me products and services without answering my questions about how best to care for my skin as I age, I'm late forties. I met Robin through a mutual friend. I was very pleased to finally have found someone knowledgeable about skincare and who individualized her services to my skin. She recommended products which helped my skin look healthy, supple and of course look younger. I highly recommend Robin!

    Marion
  • I absolutely Loved the cute mason jar DIY facial kits! All the best products and Robin's detailed instructions for beautiful skin!  I highly recommend!  

    Elora
  • I had an excellent facial with Robin today. My skin looked different when I left than when I got there...healthier. So happy I found her...she's a gem.

  • Robin helped my back acne tremendously. I was on Accutane previously but I still had lingering adult back acne. The Image Skincare products are great! I had several facials and peels and the acne started to disappear. I had healthy skin for my wedding day. I wasn't afraid to take off my shirt during the honeymoon in Aruba. I highly recommend going to Robin. She has a lot of experience and does an amazing job!

    Dr. Brian P. Conner, DC, CNS
  • I have been going to Robin for over 8 yrs. She's the best. She really helped turn my skin around and always stays up on the best treatments and home care products for my specific concerns

    Sylvia
  • If you want a great facial done with quality products, Robin is the one! She has been in the business for years and you can tell with her knowledge of skin and skincare. I've had much more expensive facial done at spas that can't compare with her quality.

    Caroline V.
  • I highly recommend Robin.  She is the best at what she does and I wouldn’t even consider going to anyone else.  She is very personable and knows her products well.

    Ann
  • I had problems with acne for years. After just one treatment, I started noticing a difference, and so did everyone else! My skin is very sensitive, and Robin helped me to find the perfect skincare line to suit my needs. It is evident that she is very experienced in what she does, and she will make you feel very comfortable getting th treatment you need.

    Victoria
  • I just had a great facial with Robin Poole. She's an excellent Esthetician! I highly recommend her!

    Ellen
  • Robin KNOWS skin.  She is an absolutely fantastic, expert esthetician with an extremely warm presence.  I (in my mid-twenties) and my mother (mid-fifties) went in this morning for facials - Robin took her time to truly get to know us and our skin before getting started.  Over the years I have been to several different spas which offer a "custom" facial and none have compared to the truly custom facial I received today!  My mom and I are totally refreshed and our dry, mistreated winter skin is truly GLOWING!! we had to book our next appt before leaving today and I will be back from New Jersey in 6-weeks for facial #2!! Can not wait to see Robin again!

    Staphanie
  • My last facial with Robin was the o2 and it really made my skin feel great! She has created a nice space to make you feel comfortable and relaxed.

    Janet
  • I have been having facials from Robin for about 10 years. She always knows what your skin needs and does the treatment that will help your skin look amazing. I also use the products that Robin recommends and if something isn't doing the job she will try something else. Robin explains everything about the procedure and the products she is using which is so helpful. I recommend Robin to all my friends and can't wait for my next facial.

    PJ
  • I had a virtual consultation with Robin a week ago and was very impressed!  The consultation was done via FaceTime and Robin really took the time to understand my concerns and provided thought out product recommendations and not just a pile of random products to purchase.  After the call she followed up via email with her list of recs and I was able to purchase them through her site.  She shipped out quickly and included an RX of how/when to use everything (and she even included some samples).  I've been using everything since I've received and her recs were spot on!  Already noticing some improvement in areas we talked about.  Can't recommend a virtual consult with Robin enough!

  • My first facial with Robin was a lifesaver.  She noticed a mole on my back.  She looked at it and recommended I go to a dermatologist. It was skin cancer and I was lucky that it was taken care of right away. I'm so grateful she took notice.   I loved the facial and had many more with her after that.  I try to get to Connecticut once or twice a year for a great facial and catch up... I miss her very much.

    Diane
  • Robin is an expert aesthetician, her space is healing, her knowledge of skin and the products best suited for my skin and my daughters skin type was right on.  My skin was absolutely glowing after the facial.  I highly recommend Robin's Spa.  I can't wait to go back.  I already made a follow up appointment.  

    Annmarie
  • If you want to feel like your skin has been rejuvenated, refreshed, and the most important part glowing please see Robin!! She is a wonderful person to be around, and very intelligent in skincare. I started the image skincare routine and my skin has never felt so amazing. I will be seeing her every couple of months for a facial!!

    Ali H.
  • I have known Robin Poole for some ten years plus, both as a friend and a person who is gifted at giving facials. She is definitely someone who knows her business and is very dedicated to doing an excellent job at cleansing and refreshing your skin. She always suggested the proper way for me to maintain "my glow" and was always available to answer any questions I had concerning skin health. She is very up-to-date on proper eating habits and the right skin care and sun tan lotions to use. I recommend her without reservation.
