A woman is suing for $3.3 million over allegations she was misled by an online beauty spa and said she was lied to about her skin condition.
Katherine B. Smith filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on Monday in the Northern Illinois Regional Court.
She alleges that the Beauty Spa of the Stars and the company that owns it, Janda Beauty, knowingly and willfully deceived her.
Smith, a 27-year-old who lives in Illinois, alleges she had to pay $5,000 for a service at the Beauty Star that allegedly failed to meet all the standards set forth by the American Beauty Association.
She claims that she had been told that she was going to receive a natural and natural skin treatment, but that it was not the result she had expected, according to the lawsuit.
Janda Beauty declined to comment.
Smith’s attorney, Jason D. Schaffer, told Fox News that Smith had filed the lawsuit because she was “absolutely stunned” to learn of the alleged deception and that she wanted to file a civil rights complaint.
He said Smith had previously worked for the Beauty Stars and had been using the spa as a home spa for about a year, but had recently stopped using because of health concerns.
Smith has alleged that she began to experience skin issues after the spa opened in October 2016.
She said that she experienced severe itching and dryness, as well as the redness and swelling that are often associated with rashes, scabies and other skin conditions.
She also complained of burning in her mouth and nose and skin irritation, the lawsuit said.
The Beauty Spa was not authorized by the state of Illinois to advertise on its website, the complaint said.
According to the complaint, Smith went to the Beauty spa with a friend in January 2017.
The two went to a separate room to shower, and Smith’s friend then took her to the spa.
Smith said she didn’t notice anything was wrong, but after the shower, she noticed that her skin was visibly dry and sore, the suit said.
Smith said she immediately started taking her medication, which included zinc oxide and vitamin E, which is used to help reduce the red blood cell count.
She was also told that her rash would disappear on its own, but her rash became more severe, she said.
In February, Smith reported her rash to the state.
According to the suit, the spa informed her that she should be careful of her skin because the skin she was wearing could become inflamed and that zinc oxide would help alleviate the irritation.
Smith reported the rash again in April and was told by the spa that she needed to discontinue using the treatment because it was causing her skin to become irritated, according the suit.
Smith told Fox 5 News that she filed a complaint with the state, the Illinois Department of Agriculture and Consumer Protection, the state’s attorney general’s office and the U,S.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
She is seeking unspecified damages and attorneys’ fees.
