Spa packages make an excellent Valentine’s Day gift, as most lovebirds are weary from being shot with Cupid’s arrow and carving love letters in the walls of their sweetheart’s apartment. Heal lovesick bodies with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a Valentine’s Day spa package at Studio Lift in Little Rock (a $275 total value). The package includes:
- 50-minute full-body Chocolate Massage (a $90 value)
- 50-minute chocolate signature facial (a $75 value)
- Chocolate foot scrub (a $40 value)
- Chocolate foot mud mask (a $40 value)
- Eco-fin luxury paraffin hand treatment (a $30 value)
The professional technicians at Studio Lift sweeten their regular treatments with chocolate-infused products that add a taste of romance to Valentine’s Day–themed spa packages. After visitors nibble on chocolate-covered strawberries, a chocolate- and brown-sugar-infused body wrap conditions and exfoliates skin. For the signature facial, aestheticians frost faces with Aveda and Dermalogica products, smoothing skin with an exfoliant before they serve guests a mug of hot chocolate as a hydrating mask penetrates pores. Cocoa flavors a two-step foot treatment, during which attendants loosen dead skin cells with a scrub and then soften paws with a moisture-rich mud mask. Lastly, technicians warm hands with a biodegradable paraffin wax before placing them in herbal mitts that seal in moisture better than a body suit made of plastic wrap.
As a combined yoga and skincare studio, Studio Lift serves as a calming oasis for both mind and body. Students of all skill levels travel to the studio with their mats, ready for sessions of meditative chanting, stretching, and inspiring music. Staff at the studio also furthers relaxation with massage and beautifies clients with waxing services.:m]]
