Violet Skin Boutique has been the go-to spot for Boston complexions since 2004, but its story actually starts about 30 years prior with world-renowned master facialist and skin care expert, Violet Mkhitaryan. Violet’s Skin Boutique has been locally selling its skin care products to a devoted client base in Boston since opening their first organic spa over a decade ago. Their best sellers include the Violet yolk mask known as the instant skin lift. Violet facials are deep cleansing treatments that include manual exfoliation with gentle and thorough extractions leaving no pore left untouched. The advanced Violet Signature facial massage is customized to your skin and is polished off with a relaxing massage.
Violet’s modern approach to improving the skin’s appearance is to combine live properties from foods, oils, and herbs-using no preservatives or chemicals. She meticulously selects the freshest ingredients to maximize the effectiveness. 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 and she beautifies her clients with facials and body treatments celebrated by Every Day with Rachel Ray.
