12 Days of Giveaways: Spa Boutique: Shop Local for Skincare

Local shops make a city’s retail market unique and interesting. Shop local this holidays and venture into the city’s boutique offerings. One destination worth visiting in the Kits area is Spa Boutique, which offers quality skincare and beauty lines. What sets them apart? Only qualified estheticians work the retail front which is a clear distinction from big box stores and chains. On-site to share advice that only an expert can provide, the staff gives recommendations on lines such as Dermalogica, Obagi, Guinot, Phytomer, Yonka, Eminence, Jane Iredale and GM Collin.

Spa Boutique is an extension of the popular online store (SpaBoutique.ca) that has been successfully operating for six years. This holiday season marks the one year anniversary for the retail front, which also offers express facials in store. This gives shoppers the best of both worlds: in person professional advice with online convenience.

Owner Nancy Mudford, who is also the founder of Le Petit Spa shares her top 5 Christmas gift items for the beauty junkie in your life:

  1. Dermalogica Active Moist Gift Set ($68)
  2. Zoya Gems & Jewels Holiday Collection Sampler ($48)
  3. Clarisonic Mia available in 11 shades ($119)
