To attain the rosy glow of flushed cheeks, 18th-century ladies often took snowballs to the face, nuzzled fire-ant hills, and bench pressed child princes. Give your complexion a painless glow with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a 70-minute Glo2 oxygen organic facial at Eden Organix in Highland Park (a $110 value).
Using exclusively organic and natural products, Eden Organix leaves skin looking dewy fresh in the finest toxin-free tradition with the Glo2 oxygen organic facial, used by celebrities to erase irregularities before awards shows. During the 70-minute treatment, an experienced technician applies pressurized oxygen to the skin, nourishing tired cells and returning a youthful gleam to dulled dermis. The rejuvenating process leaves skin looking firm, smooth, and glowing like radioactive honey.
Unlike garlic-laced chocolate cigarettes, the Glo2 Oxygen Organic facial is recommended for acne sufferers, smokers, and the undead. As you bliss out amid the spa's soothing beige walls and dark-wood accents, your technician will finish by massaging your hands and feet out of their perpetual kung-fu grips.
Valerie, the founder of Eden Organix, is a licensed aesthetician, chemical engineer, makeup artist, and former cosmetic researcher at M.I.T. She personally tests and evaluates every product sold in her store with a series of grueling multiple-choice questions and a Voight-Kampff test to determine if the products are replicants. Even cleaning products and friendly poltergeists must pass eco-muster before crossing Eden’s threshold, and her commitment to enriching lives means 10% of profits are donated to organizations helping women, children, and the environment.
The staff at Eden Organix cossets bodies with facials, body wraps, salon services, and waxing treatments. A host of eco-friendly techniques and products beautify, hydrate, and exfoliate skin during body therapies. Deep-tissue, Swedish, and other massage modalities de-stress and relax aching muscles. Clients can also receive makeup applications for a special occasion, along with an array of manicures, pedicures, and soothing herbal foot baths.
