Nine out of 10 scientists agree that a healthy human face needs oxygen, after studying the effects of encasing the 10th scientist's head in an upside-down fish bowl. Maintain a majestic visage and a robust behind-the-skin scene with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a Valentine's facial at Capricious Skin Care in Los Gatos (a $130 value).
The aestheticians at Capricious Skin Care cleanse and exfoliate outer coverings with facials that tackle dryness and blemishes without losing sight of the client's experience. Remove stains caused by napping atop newly paved driveways with the 50-minute Valentine's facial, which combines gentle cleansers and moisturizers with treats that add a romantic touch. The session begins with a double cleanse to shoo away loitering oils and exfoliation to clear away entrenched debris. An antioxidant-rich chocolate-silk mask floods skin with nutrients before rhassoul clay teams up with oatmeal, honey, and coconut milk to restore sapped moisture. The skin specialist then slathers a champagne- and rose-sugar hand scrub over dexterous digits to release tension. After a facial massage and a protective dose of hydration, taste buds relish a velvety chocolate truffle. Buyers who purchase this deal as a gift can exchange printed Groupons for a service-specific gift card and a handful of chocolate truffles to present to a loved one.
Animal-print upholstery, fuzzy pillows, and a shimmering chandelier make Capricious's waiting area as glamorous as a rock star's limousine hatchery. Natural light and plentiful botanicals brighten the spa, where cups of complimentary peppermint tea and cucumber water soothe thirsty throats amid scents wafting from aromatic candles.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Capricious Skin Care a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
