A properly cleaned human face can express hundreds of varied emotions, but when dirt accumulates, its repertoire shrinks to “creepy stare” and “mistook a stress ball for an apple.” Expand your emotional range with today’s Groupon: for $47, you get a European facial (a $75 value) and a pumpkin peel (a $20 value) at Amber Rose Skin Care in Sebastopol (a $95 total value).
The 60-minute European facial razes dermal dirt patches with a customized regimen of exfoliating products, after which a pumpkin peel cultivates glowing gardens in the skin-deep topsoil. The steady hands of licensed aestheticians Amber Buttke and Jaime Berry swaddle weary visages with an array of cleansing and exfoliating serums selected with individual skin types in mind. Customers can also count on the European facial to moisturize their mugs and protect them from future solar encounters and loan sharks who seek repayment in scowls.
After a soothing face, neck, arm, and hand massage wraps up the facial, a therapeutic 15-minute pumpkin peel uproots dead skin cells and softens the appearance of furrows and creases. The peel also evicts bacteria residing in surface slums and stimulates local collagen economies as effectively as a heat wave in a town populated by tube-top manufacturers. Patrons stay relaxed throughout this sweeping campaign of aesthetic reforms, their worries assuaged by the spa’s quiet, relaxing atmosphere and Amber and Jaime’s ever-attentive service.
