The Skin and Makeup Institute have the best day spas. It is a glamour spa getaway, located in Phoenix AZ, the decor is very relaxing, the space is tranquil and spacious! I arrived an hour early ( the steam room, sauna, jacuzzi and pampering stations are stocked with hair, skin care and shaving supplies) all included! I’m a fan!
They have the best spas in Phoenix. Men and women have their own spaces! The only communal area is the waiting room area for services! The retail area is packed with all the skin care and beautification products one could wish for! The retail floor is fully stocked and beautifully displayed!
I was given a guided tour of the spa, by the Men’s room attendant, a well spoken and charismatic gentleman! I slipped into a plush white robe (available for purchase!). and slip proof slippers and I headed to the steam room and sauna, then soaked a bit in the jacuzzi. That hour slipped away, It’s heavenly! I felt like I floated to the waiting room area, I was so relaxed! Fresh fruits, lemonade, infused waters and other libations are offered! I sat down and relaxed with a delicious jasmine and vanilla tea! I hope Skin and Makeup Institute considers selling their signature teas. The fireplace and oversized comfy sofas made me feel quite distant from the daily stressors of travel and city living!
I booked my facial and under eye treatment. I was greeted by name and instantly felt welcomed by a modern coiffed blonde with the most beautiful alabaster skin! I was whisked away to a private and comfy room, Their professional knowledge and warm personality made my facial and extractions and under eye treatment with rejuvenating serums an exceptional experience! Their knowledge of dermatology is quite amazing! Their recommendations for skin care and the best new products and ingredients for my combination skin made me feel special! They impressed me! Skin and Makeup Institute spoiled me! I’m still glowing! Thank you Skin and Makeup Institute!
I also took my Mom and sister here for their Mother’s Day treat. It was their first experiencing Skin and Makeup Institute. My mother and sister said that their experience was a pleasant one.
We checked in at the receptionist when we arrived and there was a line. After a few minutes we were helped with excellent customer service. They were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the types of services they offered.
Location is beautiful, they have fruits, water, lemonade, towels, blow dryer, hair brush, hair spray and anything you need for pampering.
The people I worked with were great, friendly and knowledgeable. The receptionist will check you in and provide you a key to your locker. In the locker room you will find a robe and slippers. If you arrive early you can then loiter around the jacuzzi, sauna or waiting area. You will then wait in the waiting area five minutes before your massage. Your therapist will then pick you up. I noticed they do not always pick you up on time for your appointment. Say your appointment is at 4pm I didn’t get picked up until 4:05pm and my sister and mom had to wait about five to ten minutes as well for their therapist.
My therapist was great, the massage was very relaxing with strong pressure (which was great for my nots). During your massage your robe and slippers are kept in a closet and is kept heated. After your massage your robe and slippers are nice and warm.
My brother said he wish he can just live there! He said it is an amazingly relaxing spa with all the amenities that everybody ever needs for a truly relaxing experience. He spent 5 hours here all by himself and it was the best “me time” I’ve ever had.
My brother used the gift certificate I’ve given him for his birthday and he took a day off work, booked a massage and a facial for a Wednesday. He said it was awesome because there was barely anyone there on a random weekday. He had so much privacy and enjoyed most of the amenities all to himself!
He booked a Pure Relaxation Massage with an add-on of the Spa-Style Facial with an add-on of Vitamin C peel and Skin Brightener treatment. He got the massage first because the therapist don’t want to open up his pores again after his facial. I also informed him to come at least 1 to two hours before his massage so he can fully enjoy their amenities such as the hot tub, steam room, sauna, cool mist room or quiet room. It’s also a great way to warm up the muscles and loosen them up before your masseuse works out the kinks in you. He really took advantage of it because it is so quiet on a Wednesday. He tried all the amenities. He said that the entire facility was clean and plenty of staff around to refill water, towels, fruit and clean up.
He said his massage was amazing. He also said the he wish he bought the 80 minute massage because 50 minutes go by really quickly! His facial was also very soothing and enjoyable. It left his skin feeling fresh, dewy, smooth and there was a noticeable difference in his skin tone as some of my sun spots lightly faded. He was pleased with my results! And he said everything smelled sooo good and added to the aromatic experience during both his treatments. After his facial, he said his skin care technician advised him to wait at least 30 minutes to let the products absorb so he went into the quiet room for a nap!
In conclusion he ended up signing up for a membership here.
