Stop hiding under wide-brimmed hats and curtains of hair with today's Groupon to Frou Frou Skincare and Massage. For $65, you can indulge in the Refresher, a deluxe facial peel that will have you pouting and posing for the next available camera, mirror, or hunter-gatherer.
Your warm, friendly licensed esthetician, Brady, knows skin like the back of her skin-covered hands. She customizes the Refresher facial peel to target your individual skin problems, restoring balance and beauty to your face and perhaps to the Universe. The Refresher is a 40-minute facial massage that uses lactic acid and aluminum oxide crystals to smooth out rough skin, correct hyperpigmentation, and combat the build up of oil and bacteria. A pure oxygen spray finishes the treatment, so your skin shimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, except not liquid and not transparent.
The Refresher is a mild peel that requires little to no recovery time and is appropriate for sensitive skin types. It's the perfect introduction for new facial clients. Perk up your look for a special event or renew your skin after a hectic week at work.
Reviewers aggregated on Kuzu give Frou Frou five stars:
- Nicole, the owner, is extremely knowledgeable about skincare and gives a too-die-for facial! My skin is glowing for weeks afterwards! – fififluff, Citysearch
- Besides the fabulous interior design of this salon, Nicole and Traci are such terrific people to work with. They also have a great selection of facial products. Highly recommended! – jennifer n., InsiderPages
- Frou-Frou has to be one of the most darling spaces in all of Austin. Joel Mozersky, King of Austin cutting edge design fame, helped design it 3 years ago. Between the fun pink and white graphic walls to the lipstick red semi-circular sofa, you feel like you are in Paris or NYC. – Contributor, Citysearch
Recommended Daily Dose of Action
The Refresher isn’t just an invigorating facial peel, it was also the name of a syndicated live-action adventure series starring Dean Walker as Jake Hopper, aka, The Refresher. Each week Hopper would fight evil and remind viewers of the importance of drinking eight glasses of water per day. Here are some famous episodes:
“Mysterious When Wet”: Hopper goes undercover as a diamond smuggler, but the desert heat plays tricks on his mind. After drinking some water, Hopper gets more than he bargained for.
“Eight Glasses of Danger”: When Hopper gets double-crossed, he’s forced to make a decision: rescue a small town from corrupt animal control agents or pause to drink enough water to stay hydrated.
“For Whom the Well Tolls”: Hopper is hired to protect a European princess, but when terrorists kidnap her, Hopper must choose between doing his job and drinking the recommended daily allowance of water.
