Joya Spa at Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia

joya spa wet lounge

Joya. Even the name (pronounced joy-ah) elicits a peaceful easy feelin’. But as the new kid on the resort spa block, did it live up to its name and budding reputation? Oh yah. Did it ever. I visited the spa mid-summer with my spa-savvy sister-in-law in tow. A high-powered admin assistant, she was as fried […]

Pure Vanity Spa

Pure Vanity Spa Scottsdale

Pain FREE laser hair removal? Really? Yes, really! Read on! If I had $200 and only two hours to spend it, I can guarantee Pure Vanity Spa would be the place I’d go. For a business in the Grayhawk neighborhood of North Scottsdale, this day spa takes the cake for great prices and an even greater […]

Tocaloma Spa & Salon at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort

Tocaloma-spa-entrance

Recently, I had the privilege of experiencing the intimate offerings of the Tocaloma Spa & Salon at the Pointe Hilton at Tapatio Cliffs. As you might know, the Pointe Hilton resorts are equipped with water slides and lazy river pools and are known for being great destinations for families with children, but don’t let that […]

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 […]

Spa Avania at Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch

Avania_Outdoor

Spa Avania at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale is undeniably gorgeous in its architecture and decor, and the nurturing time-of-day philosophy is undoubtedly brilliant. But I’d have to peg the people — from the reception staff to the highly skilled therapists — as the primary reason for the Avania experience being so emotionally elevating and memorable. […]

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 […]

Massage Envy Spa Tempe Marketplace

Massage Envy

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 […]

Centre for Well-Being at The Phoenician

Centre for Well-Being at The Phoenician

Arizona Spa Girls review of the Centre for Well-Being at The Phoenician. The Centre for Well-Being at The Phoenician will always be a sentimental favorite among all the spas that I’ve been lucky enough to visit. One, because it was the first spa that I’ve ever been to and two, because it was the very […]

One Love Boutique Spa

One_Love-Boutique-Spa

Spa Girls head to One Love Boutique Spa in Scottsdale to road test their signature “hot date” facial! To sum it up in one sentence, I was thrilled from head to toe with my experience at One Love Boutique Spa in Scottsdale. First I fell in love with its location at Scottsdale’s Salon Studios because […]

Maggie’s European Skin Care

AZ-Spa-Generic

There's just something about Maggie. It had been nearly 7 years since I last visited her at the resort spa where she still works a few days a week. I had fallen head over heels for her thorough yet oh-so relaxing facials, her warm and compassionate sensibility, and her sincere concern for the condition of […]
