Lavishing a Valentine with a spa treatment is a romantic alternative to such stale gift ideas as a bouquet of baby-back ribs or getting them thrown in jail so that they'll write more love letters. Save skin with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 50-minute Valentine's Day facial at Capricious Skin Care in Los Gatos (a $130 value).
The experienced team at Capricious Skin Care provides visitors with quality face-smoothing services using top-notch skincare products. During the Valentine's Day facial, a skin sorceress will double-cleanse and exfoliate your dull dermis, then paint your face with a champagne mask infused with the hydrating and antioxidant properties of champagne oil and grapes—fading age and cheetah spots while removing shambling hordes of undead skin cells. The paraben-free facial is suitable for all skin types—including sun-damaged, bad boy, and fried chicken—and ends with a customized toning and moisturizing. A facial massage and shea butter hand treatment is included in the 50-minute indulgence to reduce stress and subsequently reduce the risk of stress-induced face-to-carriage transformations at midnight. Capricious Skin Care also bestows facial gift givers with complimentary truffles from Chocolate Dream Box, which they can present to their Valentine or devour in a dark alley before heading home.
