Apropos of nothing, skincare expert Sonya Dakar has some of the worst Yelp reviews we've ever seen. From one epic rant: "She's often extremely late for appointments. Answers cell phone in the middle of your facial. Will actually leave without explanation or apology in the middle of your treatment. Tends to handle your skin roughly to the point of drawing blood during extractions, leaving bruises as your skin tries to recover in the days/weeks following your treatment. Continually attempts to goad you into purchasing more and more products, threatening that your skin will rebel and look worse than before." [Sonya Dakar/Yelp]
