5 Milk & Honey Firming Ritual at Revive Spa
The Milk & Honey Firming Ritual at Revive Spa at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort is a triple threat.

Next, he or she applies a body masque of honey (high in B vitamins), used to strengthen connective tissue and revitalize skin cells, which can reduce the appearance of cellulite while simultaneously turning back the clock on your skin. And finally, you receive a warm oil scalp massage and an application of coconut milk infused with exotic nut oils to maximize your skin's hydration levels. The service is 80 minutes.
