There’s nothing more beautiful than the innocence of a child, unless that child is covered in pie filling. Out-beauty pie-gobbling youth with the help of today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a chocolate mani-pedi package at Elysian Fields Day Spa in Whitby (a $100 total value). The package includes:
- A milk-chocolate deluxe spa manicure (a $35 value)
- A one-hour cocoa-mint deluxe spa pedicure (a $65 value)<p>
Within the stately Heritage building, Elysian Fields Day Spa’s new chocolate manicure and pedicure draw on ancient beauty rituals and fragrant cocoa scrubs to hydrate and beautify hands and feet. Within chandeliered and floral-festooned treatment rooms and mani/pedi lounge for larger groups, customers soak their cuticles in a Cleopatra-inspired milk blend to soften skin, smooth its texture, and make finger bones as strong as a weightlifter’s love of spandex. Arms and hands relax under a chocolate-infused mask with hydrating nutrients that penetrate the skin under gentle massaging pressure. The cocoa-mint deluxe spa pedicure bathes feet in a minty infusion before scrubbing away calluses and trial horseshoes with a chocolate-sugar scrub. As technicians paint fingers and toes in a choice of colour, customers can enjoy a cup of chocolate tea and chocolate mints. Clients wishing to extend pampering services to other parts of the body can select from three upgrades: a Shellac manicure ($19), a 30-minute healthy glow facial ($29), or a brow wax ($12).
