Located a short distance from Temecula wine country, Spa Cabernet uncorks entrenched fuzz from more than 15 areas of the body, and also offers massage, skincare, and spa treatments. A Brazilian wax leaves the bikini area totally bare, preparing bodies for a day at the beach or a few hours of tanning beside a whale tank at the aquarium. Alternatively, clients can apply a credit toward other services, such as an eyebrow wax ($20), a full-leg wax ($65), a male buttocks wax ($30), or a women’s half-arm wax ($30). Each 30-minute cabernet polish instills the skin with antioxidants, using dark-wine ingredients inspired by the spa’s location. Replete with lit votives and dark wood, the spa’s minimalist décor provides a better feast for the eyes than flipping through two cookbooks simultaneously.
Bel Mondo Day Spa certainly sets the bar high. The staffers goal, they say, is to keep clients "ageless and beautiful." Short on magic potions and enchanted water guns, the spa's staff nonetheless works magic via beauty treatments like eyelash extensions, Brazilian blowouts, and microdermabrasion.
The rugged beauty of nature meets the comfort of vacation amenities at REO Rafting Resort, a secluded getaway on the edge of Nahatlatch River. Throughout the Fraser Canyon, experienced guides lead groups on whitewater rafting day-trips and multiday excursions, helping beginners and advanced rafters alike to navigate class III and IV+ rapids. Some of the trips take place along the Nahatlatch and others venture to the Stein, Thompson, and Fraser rivers, all of which are less than 45 minutes away from base camp. Relaxation and pampering follow at the resort's facilities, where a hot tub, massage therapists, and glasses of beer or wine await to reward campers for their rugged displays of human heartiness.
At nightfall, guests cozy up around a campfire, but they need not roast hot dogs or trap varmints for sustenance. A team of professional chefs prepares meals for guests, which also helps prevent the risk of forest fires and bears moseying into campsites for a snack.
IKON Aveda Salon & Day Spa is an Aveda concept salon with three locations. Though each one has its own unique slate of services, the overall mission is unified—to cultivate stylish, modern looks for its clients and create a welcoming atmosphere. At the Menifee location, master stylists cut, color, and texturize hair, while skin care specialists conduct botanical resurfacing treatments—alternatives to microdermabrasions—that use tourmaline gemstone to gently reduce fine lines and the tiny acrobats who walk them. The Santa Ana and Tustin locations also offer haircuts and hair treatments, as well as a selection of makeup, lash, and skincare services.
The staff at Zerona San Diego, which takes a consultative approach with each client, wields noninvasive laser technology to melt away stubborn fat deposits and give dieters a boost in losing weight and keeping it off. Since Zerona doesn't involve incisions, anesthesia, or steamrollers, patients don't experience discomfort and can resume normal activities immediately following the procedure.
Capriccio offers a myriad of rejuvenating services across its salon and spa menus. If you have an unwanted color of hair on your head, Capriccio will tint it ($70+). If you have hair where you shouldn't have hair, Capriccio will wax it (lip $12, full face $40, bikini $40). If you have too much hair, Capriccio can design, cut, and style it in a way that makes you feel content (men $30+, women $55+). If your hair already makes you feel content, Capriccio can grant you 20 minutes in the steam room ($25) and 75 minutes of honey-infused cocoon status to match your happy hair ($150).
Simply owning a spa was not enough for Jolie Day Spa founders Kelly Ozmon and Suzanne Bitz. Shortly after opening their first spa, armed with aesthetician's licenses and advanced certifications, the duo delved into research and chemistry, concocting their own line of nationally recognized clinical skincare products that incorporate botanicals from the coast of Hawaii, the south of France, and the invisible lakes of Mars.
Inside Jolie Day Spa, the owners' passions for high-quality products and attentive treatments intersect, as a staff of highly experienced aestheticians and cosmetologists pair Joli Visage products with facials and peels to help clients overcome signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and a tattoo of an American flag with only 48 stars on it. A retinue of bodycare services from licensed massage therapists and hair treatments round out the all-encompassing menu of beautifying treatments.
