Glow Goddess

Known for her airbrush tanning, I visited the Glow Goddess (aka, Logan) for a serious skincare overhaul. A beauty junkie who actually does all of her treatments on herself, Logan is your girl if you want results but don’t have a ton of time. The chic, comfy studio is located right on the 5th Avenue strip […]

True Rest Float Spa

Sailing away at the True Rest Float Spa in Tempe … the Spa Girls review. Imagine crawling into in a large, egg-shaped vessel and floating in salt water as you sink into a deep state of relaxation. No, you’re not in some existential dream or adrift at sea. You are at the True Rest Float […]

Sleekskin Aesthetics

Bliss meets serious skincare therapy at Sleekskin! I visited Sleekskin Aestheics for a facial treatment with the owner Debbie Davis, who runs the uber successful, one-woman show in Scottsdale. With more than 15 years experience as a licensed aesthetician, Debbie might not openly admit it, but she is known as quite the miracle worker. Don’t believe […]

Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Scottsdale

Believe it or not, it’s rare these days that head Spa Girl Sunny actually has time to spend a day at the spa (crazy, huh?). So when she decided to go, she went big and chose Well & Being at Willow Stream as the place to waste away a few valuable hours just hanging at […]

Massage Envy

Massage Envy Spa Tempe Marketplace

Need a good skin cleanup without breaking the bank? Read our review of the new Murad Healthy Skin Facials available nationwide at Massage Envy Spas. I was a late bloomer when it comes to facials, in fact, in the past I had been known to actively avoid skincare treatments. Just ask my friend who so […]
