Best of Boston

2011 Best Facial


Having endured all kinds of spa mumbo-jumbo and dubious beauty-boosting therapies (“And the final step is a blast of air from our oxygen machine….”), we began to wonder: Since when did facials become more about the experience than the result? Thank goodness Skoah has its priorities straight: At this Vancouver-based mini chain’s first U.S. outpost, the service menu lists facial and only facial treatments. We like that the extractions are virtually painless and the treatment tables feature fluffy down comforters—but we love our crystal-clear and glowing skin.
