things to do in boston: skoah

confession! even though i care deeply about my skin and skincare, i had never had an honest-to-goodness facial up until last week. i think i was scared of it upsetting the balance i've found with my skin. plus so many spas use products that i'm unsure of. i don't know what's in them, and sometimes skin technicians can't tell me what's in them (trust me, i've asked at spas i've been to). it was easier to stick to pampering myself through massages. but then i found skoah.

skoah has three locations in boston: one in the south end (right around the corner from follain!), one on newbury street and one in chestnut hill at the street. i was lucky enough to check out skoah in chestnut hill. from the moment i stepped into skoah, i felt pampered.
it's tranquil and clean. everything i've ever wanted! skoah started in canada, and the products they use are all made for the spas. the company has created their own blend of "11 different plant extracts to calm and soothe the skin and to fight free radicals," that they include in just about every product. the staff explained to me that everything in the products are safe, sulfate- and paraben-free, and they use high-refined lipids and oils like olive oil, shea butter and coconut oil.

my facial was amazing; my technician alison explained every product she was using on me, why they were important, and what i could do at home to keep my skin extra healthy. she chatted with me about life in the city, and made me feel very relaxed. if you happen to make an appointment, definitely see her! and with facial prices starting at $45 for target sessions and capping at $140, they won't break the bank.

if you're looking to treat yourself to something that's good for your skin and you, definitely give one of skoah's three boston-area locations a shot. you definitely won't regret it.

disclosure: i was provided a complimentary facial from skoah at the street, but all opinions are my own.
