The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North
10600 E. Crescent Moon Dr., Scottsdale
Invigorating Hungarian facial massage (think pinching and piano-playing over skin to get the blood flowing to conjure a nice flush), copper peptide treatments, layers of antioxidant collagen masks, and firming microcurrent therapies are just some of the skin-revivifying treatments on the menu. We especially love the Revital-Eyes, in which botanical-infused pads are applied to the under-eyes to support collagen and ease puffiness before the area is targeted with a NuFace device to tighten and lift via gentle electric current.
Montelucia Resort & Spa
4949 E. Lincoln Dr., Camelback
There’s definitely a Moorish paradise thing happening throughout this Scottsdale resort. Rooms are clustered in sections so it feels like walking through little villages with a Kabash pool where people lounge under the cabanas from day into night. The heart of the resort is the massive Moroccan-style Joya spa (the building is an architectural feat in its own right) their signature being the Hammam Experience—start with an herbal black soap scrub, followed by a steam, whirlpool, sauna, cold deluge and a final rest in the ‘warming room.’ They also offer acupuncture, cupping, and IV therapy, making this just a bit different than your traditional hotel spa. The resort is set at the foot of the Camelback Mountain, which makes for a great morning hike through the desert landscape.
Cos Bar
15044 N. Scottsdale Rd., #150, Scottsdale
The only thing better than Cos Bar's famously vast offering of makeup, fragrance, bath, and beauty products (including the newly-launched goop organic skincare line) is the exceptional customer service provided by the knowledgeable, genuinely nice beauty consultants, which is exactly how founder Lily Garfield envisioned it back in 1976 when she opened the original Aspen outpost. There are Cos Bars all over the country, including New York, La Jolla, and Montecito.
