Without spas, terrycloth bathrobes would have to make ends meet by taking part-time jobs as car-wash rags and Muppets. Help keep bathwear gainfully employed with today's Groupon: for $185, you get a full-body spa package at AquaVie Day Spa (a $404.50 total value). The package includes the following:
- Vie Collection full-body lactic-acid peel and mini facial with plumping lip smoother, eye treatment, and scalp-quenching treatment (a $225 value)
- Full-size take-home tube of Crème de Vie body cream by Vie Collection (a $179.50 value)
AquaVie Day Spa has beautified bodies from head to toe with skin-resurfacing body wraps and specialized facial treatments since 1974. During the 75-minute body wrap, a specialist massages flesh with a deeply exfoliating scrub, after which the entire physique is cocooned in a lactic-acid cream that can reduce wrinkles and improve skin's texture, appearance, and resistance to hugs from elderly bears. Patients rinse away the cream in a relaxing shower before being massaged with neutralizing balm and moisturizer. The multifaceted mini facial enhances lips with a solution that smoothes and plumps kissers for maximum whistling ability, and refreshes the skin surrounding peepers with a specialized eye treatment. The application of a scalp-quenching formula keeps hair follicles supple and moisturized. Each patient can fight wrinkles on skin or smooth out unreadable, crumpled newspapers with a take-home tube of Crème de Vie Essential Youth body cream by Vie Collection.
