Shine, our annual pocket guide to all things Scottsdale, is out. And this year, local artist Luster Kaboom is taking readers on an illustrated ride through the city's best spots for food, drink, art, and entertainment.
Here, in no particular order, are five of the best spa treatments in Scottsdale. To see what else made the list, check out the complete Shine guide.
Desert Cactus Renewal Facial at Joya This 50-minute, prickle-free treatment ($149 and up) uses aloe vera, Queen of the Night Cactus, and clay to strengthen skin.
Firesky Stone Massage at Jurlique With the promise of relieving stress and tension by way of warm basalt and chakra stones, this 90-minute treatment ($180) is said to bring a sense of balance.
Nail Art Manicure at Terés Grab a pic of the coolest nail art you've seen (for inspo, see Chloë Moretz and Zooey Deschanel) and take it to this nail bar, where you can add flourishes to your gel mani ($35) for an extra $4 per nail.
Crushed Pearl Pedicure at Spa Avania After a floral foot soak, feet are exfoliated with pearls, and the hourlong treatment ($95) concludes with illuminating crushed pearl concentrate.
Adobe Clay Wrap at The Spa at Camelback Inn Exfoliating and detoxifying clay is applied to the body, while a deep conditioner is applied to the hair, during this hourlong Native American treatment ($165).
