A glowing body boldly showcases one's youth and beauty, catching the eyes of both admiring passersby and local astronomers. Augment your aura with today's Groupon: for $109, you get an at-home Chocolate Delight spa package, which includes a manicure, pedicure, and choice of a 50-minute facial or 50-minute massage, from Appease Inc. (a $234 value). Residences more than 25 miles outside the Chicago city limits may incur an additional travel fee of up to $25.
Appease's skilled beautifiers pamper patrons from crown tops to toe tips, providing spa services in the privacy of their own homes. The digit-detailing manicure-and-pedicure duo starts with a soothing soak, followed by an application of a chocolate scrub to rejuvenate and soften dessert-craving skin. A manicure master expertly shapes and buffs nail tips, then applies colorful polish to add flair to waves, walks, and impromptu orchestral conducting (may upgrade to no-chip polish for an additional $25).
Next, clients may opt for the facial to tenderly purge overpopulated pores of dirt and excess oil (can upgrade to include extraction for an additional $30). After a thorough exfoliation, complexions are coated in an organic chocolate face mask to deeply detoxify and emulate the perpetually smooth-cheeked peanut-butter cup. Those choosing a massage may further customize their comfort by selecting either a Swedish or relaxation modality (massages are 50 minutes; can add 15 minutes for an additional $20 and 30 minutes for an additional $30). The Swedish massage employs massage oils and long, flowing strokes to increase circulation and eliminate toxins, while the relaxation massage aims to relieve tension via gentle kneading, rhythmic rocking, skin rolling, and revitalizing mood lifting.
