Love means never having to say you're sorry, but beauty means never having to pause at stoplights. Shift your appearance into fifth gear with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour signature facial at Kimberly's Facial Boutique, located inside Salon Boutique in Scottsdale (an $85 value).
Kimberly, the founder of Kimberly's Facial Boutique, employs skills developed throughout her 25 years in the beauty industry and training at New York's Elizabeth Arden salon to expertly soothe countenances. Each one-hour session begins with a thorough cleanse, then continues with a steam, an exfoliation, and an extraction in which dead skin cells are shown the door like a butcher at a vegan bakery. Kimberly gently massages faces and indulges them with soothing masks before pampering hands and feet with a hot-rock treatment and moisturizing lotion.
Kimberly's Facial Boutique
After becoming licensed in 1985, Kimberly Eckles, recipient of 944 Magazine's 2006 Editors Choice Award for Best Facial among others, had the talent to not only train at Elizabeth Arden's esteemed New York City spa, but to then work at renowned destinations such as Maine Chance and Camelback Inn. But over time, she felt unfulfilled by working mostly with vacationers, and longed to build a clientele of regulars. So she struck out on her own and opened Kimberly's Facial Boutique, where she administers the wide range of treatments she's learned over the years.
Those interested in more traditional services could book a signature facial, but her specialty lies in more advanced treatments. Her service menu includes everything from oxygen and AHA peels to LED light therapy and myotonology, a treatment that firms skin with low-level currents. But Kimberly still practices the luxurious touches that she picked up at those destination spas: treatments include extras like hot stones, hand and foot pampering, advanced facial massage, and adorable drink umbrellas.
