Though best known for expanding the limits of human thought, the great philosophers were also ardent proponents of skin treatments—rarely furrowing their brows without first applying a de-furrowing cucumber mask. Today’s Groupon will wipe out your own philosophical furrows and hairy conundrums with beautifying treatments at Bella D'ora Spa & Salon in Carlsbad. Choose one of two pampering options:
- For $149, you get a Brazilian blowout treatment (a $300 value), plus 10% off Brazilian blowout products
- For $49, you get a four-layer facial with an eyelift treatment (a $125 value)
If you opt for the Brazilian blowout, Bella D'ora's stylists will smooth your hair into submission using a special formula. Capable hands will shampoo hair with a specially formulated wash before leading locks in a rinsing, coating, and flat-ironing ring-around-the-rosy. The multi-step treatment wraps each hair in a protective protein shell, flattening the cuticle in an enthusiastic bear hug. After the final blow-dry, hair emerges from its damp cocoon, ready to spread straight new wings. Whether your locks came in curly like gift-wrapping ribbons or frizzier than electrocuted steel wool, a 90-minute treatment leaves them smooth and shiny for up to 12 weeks. And since time and follicle growth wait for no man, Bella D'ora's fully stocked boutique provides a line of professional products, from shampoos ($34) to serums ($38), to lengthen your blowout's life. All products are açai-based, resulting in healthy tresses that gratefully hug the scalp.
Guests who prefer the facial treatment will enjoy a skin-loving session that uses natural ingredients to boost the appearance of skin. A supergroup of components including vitamin C, active enzymes, and green tea tour the face, speeding cell turnover and brightening the skin. The included eyelift gives peepers a youthful boost while keeping them firmly ensconced below the hairline. After the 50-minute procedure, skin appears tighter and gives off a luminous glow sure to attract ardent glances and sonnet-bearing fireflies.

Bella D'ora Spa & Salon
As the weather outside grows colder, Bella D’ora Spa rolls out the cookie dough—or, at least, the smell of baking cookies. The seasonal sugar-cookie massage incorporates a brown-sugar hand-and-foot scrub into a sweet-smelling massage. The staff also provide an equal level of pampering year-round through warm-stone massages, organic facials, and body wraps that work to rid skin of toxins that may have been absorbed during baths in the chemical vats at a local soft-drink factory. Clients can bundle services for spa parties or bridal parties, which come with optional hors d’oeuvres or lunch plates that easily sate high-noon cravings.
