Being acknowledged feels good. That’s why owner Rosaline Lowe strives to personally greet each customer who enters her spa. It's just one of many personal touches that await clients who come in for one of Rosaline's much lauded facials, during which detailed consultations help the skincare expert indentify the particular needs of each complexion. For dry, aging skin, she may recommend an organic blueberry-and-honey facial, which plumps fine lines with moisture, while patients with uneven tone may see her pointing toward the oil-thwarting powers of kojic and lactic acids, which can help fight breakouts and discoloration.

Rosaline's uncanny ability to pinpoint the ails of differing skin types stems from a lengthy career that includes training at Edith Serei Academy in Canada, and more than 23 years at the helm of Rosaline SkinCare & Spa. In addition to personalized pampering, Rosaline and her staff also dish out shea-butter body wraps, waxing strips, massages, and the spa’s own line of all-natural cosmetic products.

MiniLuxe's stable of pamperers ensures sanitary and up-to-date beautification services by receiving regular consult from podiatrists and doctors, and autoclaving their instruments to achieve 100% sterilization. The 30-minute basic manicure shapes, buffs, and colors nails more quickly than dipping digits in melted copper and letting them rust. During the 45-minute KleanSpa fig and fern pedicure, technicians massage paws with a Blue Hawaii specialty scrub and hydrating lotion inflected with the scents of fresh figs, lush ferns, and vanilla. Alternatively, feet steep in paraben-free LaLicious-brand essential oils and scrubs during a 45-minute LaLicious sugar kiss pedicure, a blend of citrus, rose, and vanilla. Friendly staffers perform each service, answering lingering questions about nail maintenance or calluses shaped like Ronald Reagan.

To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, ?She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.?

Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand?s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.

Violet Skin Boutique has been the go-to spot for Boston complexions since 2004, but its story actually starts about 30 years prior. In 1975, Violet Mkhitaryan first began concocting skin products in her native Armenia. She cracked open old books to mine eastern European recipes for inspiration, and when she wasn't whisking oils and herbs into face-rejuvenating salves, she was running spas. Over the following decades, Violet helmed spas in Armenia and Moscow, all while earning degrees in aesthetics and biochemistry, and finally staked her claim in Boston.

Violet's products have appeared not only on customers' faces but in numerous press outlets, including the pages of Martha Stewart's Whole Living and the Improper Bostonian, which called her line the city's best local beauty products. She makes her lauded serums surrounded by glass jugs, dried flower petals, and everything nice in a lab that the Boston Globe described as resembling a pastry chef's kitchen. At her spa's two locations, she beautifies her clients with facials and body treatments celebrated by Every Day with Rachel Ray.

If there were a motto that defines Irina Stukalov, it would most likely be “never stop learning.” When she founded Electrolysis & Skin Care Clinic in 1993, the registered electrologist mainly focused on permanent hair removal via low-level electric currents. Since then, she’s added a few other feathers to her cap, including her aesthetician's license and her title as an intense-pulsed-light technician. She also underwent the training necessary to wield GlyMed Plus products during peels and facials designed to nourish skin with ingredients that, like tears from a robocop, are both technologically advanced and organic. Irina has also added an aesthetician and makeup artist to her team to satisfy her growing clientele.
