Everyone loves to get pampered, but these days, it’s difficult to be able to afford to treat oneself to expensive spa treatments. Luckily, Philadelphia has many wonderful shops, salons and boutiques scattered throughout the city that offer in-home spa products and treatments, so you can indulge yourself without spending beaucoup bucks.
Adorn Boutique
1314 Frankford Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19125
(215) 739-2120

As many know, this favorite Fishtown shop has fabulous jewelry, bags and clothing. However, it has branched out into the world of in-home spa products and is now carrying Soap Rocks. Soap Rocks bring wonder to daily life and help to transform the most mundane daily tasks into inspiring reminders of nature’s beauty. The soap bars light up under water and eventually wither away in your hands. They are endowed with fragrant extracts like aloe, chamomile, lavender, vitamin E, jojoba oil, olive oil and almond oil. Prepare yourself for a positive polishing experience.

3000BC
8439 Germantown Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19118

Chestnut Hill’s incredible 3000BC spa also sells its own fantastic skin-enhancing products that combine “ancient wisdom with modern science.” Its owner, Korin Korman, previously suffered from skin problems and says drug store products and prescriptions did nothing to help. So she decided to create her own special line of skin care products. It took Korman 20 years to develop the perfect blend of pure organic botanicals mixed with powerful clinical ingredients. She and her products have since received national recognition. The 3000BC anti-aging product line consists of over “100 unique and comprehensive personal care items. These awesome products feature powerful antioxidants, proteins, nourishing emollients, organic essential oils, as well as clinical-strength cosmeceuticals.”

It not only provides exceptional hair and make-up sessions with top-notch stylists, but has an enormous array of beautiful and, of course, all-organic make-up, body and skin care products for you to purchase and take home with you and indulge in yourself — guilt-free!

Jonathan Adler on Old City’s trendy North 3rd Street has plenty of cool items for both the bed and bath. So it’s only natural that it has its own line of bath and body products derived and inspired by fresh fruits and veggies. Look for juicy scented body lotions formulated with natural coconut oils and antioxidants that help moisturize, condition and protect skin while leaving it soft and supple all day long. The line’s signature scent is grapefruit, but it also carries fig- and tomato-scented items, like body and hand washes and lotions.
