When the spa moved to 16th and Walnut, it expanded its services (hello, Best of Philly 2014 winner for blowouts!). But we really love the new location for its bigger, better selection of beauty products, now organized in a huge display section worthy of the luxury brands it carries. Here you can score hard-to-find products like Valmont and Biologique Recherche skincare, Keiko Mecheri and Serge Lutens perfumes, Chantecaille makeup, makeup shampoos and conditioners, and James Read self-tanning lotions. It’s basically the best of all European beauty brands in one sleek space.

Better yet: Their website makes it easy to shop online, too.

Go here for: The cult-favorite P50, which magically turns tired, dull skin into dewy-fresh perfection. See owner Danuta’s skin for proof.
