Like the best pie dough, your body needs to be moisturized, kneaded, and smoothed before it's ready to be filled with apples and flung against a loved one. Get a delicious, crumb-free exterior with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a rose-petal foot fizz and a chocolate-mousse facial at Belladerma Wellness Spa and a $10 gift card for lunch at the attached Brick House Cafe in Brewerton (a $125 value).
The body-pampering crew at Belladerma Wellness Spa soothes sore muscles with massages, rejuvenates lackluster skin with facials, and dispenses a host of other beautifying services inside a full-service spa. The rose-petal foot fizz begins with a warm, bubbling foot bath full of precious oils, river stones, and rose petals mingling in healthful three-part harmony (a $30 value). Then a thorough foot massage relieves sore feet muscles, and a paraffin wrap prevents curious toes from inching away from their owners. Antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins join forces to create a chocolate-mousse facial, which hydrates and softens the skin more effectively and less painfully than a blast from a fire hose (an $85 value).
A $10 gift card for lunch at the connected Brick House Cafe unlocks access to storied café menu items such as the grilled Saratoga turkey sandwich stacked high with granny-smith apple slices, cranberry-horseradish sauce, greens, and provolone cheese on weight-bearing apple-oat bread ($7.99). Lightly tossed about in balsamic, raspberry, or strawberry vinaigrette, the house salad of fresh field greens, mandarin oranges, seasonal fruit, gorgonzola, and candied walnuts arrives at tables slightly disheveled but eager to provide edible entertainment ($7.99).
Belladerma Wellness Spa
At Belladerma Wellness Spa, clients don’t just get a relaxing facial or body treatment, they also get an education. Owner Ann Latocha strives to inform her clients about the latest skin care treatment options and also hosts Reiki certification classes for those interested in energy work. During corrective or relaxation facials, the licensed aesthetician uses products from DermaQuest and Pevonia to enhance skin health, while advanced treatments see her reaching for salicylic acids to exfoliate away signs of aging or pumpkin and honey to calm inflammation and remove protein buildup. To treat skin below the neck, Lynn combines dry brushing and heated herbal towels with a vitamin serums and warm basalt stones during a body wrap, which is designed to hydrate dry skin and flood clients with peaceful memories of their childhood cocoon.
