Glow Skin & Body Studio is a little difficult to find, so I’ll start this review off with detailed directions: just north of Ray Road on 44th Street in the Phoenix/Ahwatukee area, you’ll find the nondescript Mountain Park Professional Plaza. Turn in to the plaza, park in front of building two, and walk to suite 108.
Once inside Glow Skin & Body, you’ll feel like you’ve been teleported from an office building to a swanky resort spa. The entire place exudes a feeling of tranquility – from a reception area bathed in warm and earthy tones to treatment rooms that beckon with uber comfy beds and calming light.
Oftentimes at day spas, chatter at the front desk or in the hallways can ruin the mood. Such is definitely not the case at Glow Skin & Body, where I slipped into a healthy state of euphoria after about .5 seconds. There’s even a cute relaxation area that’s stocked with snacks and delicious flavored water.
Glow Skin & Body Studio is really an all-encompassing spa and wellness center. On the menu you’ll find everything from facials and massages to microdermabrasion, acupuncture, and enhancements like waxing, makeup and tinting services. I think the organic facials are a major highlight. Using Eminence products, options include an apple and paprika exfoliating treatment and parsley and cucumber oxygenating facial, among others.
My customized facial was a combination of ingredients and products all meant to balance my dry and oily skin, detox, control acne, and heal scarring. Here’s the list of goodies my aesthetician used:
- Rhonda Allison Beta Green Cleanser
- Eminence Rosehip and Maize Exfoliant with Lime Stimulant
- Rhonda Allison Pepsin and Papain Enzyme
- Eminence Calm Skin and Clear Skin Masque
- Eminence Rosehip Moisturizer and Stone Crop Serum
Every step of the facial was like a ritual – applied with purpose and care. And, I could tell that the aesthetician was being careful to be quiet in her movement, which is something I really appreciate. The leg, arm and neck massage – followed by warm towels applied to hands and feet – made the experience that much more luxurious.
