Luxurious living originally involved a rich diet consisting of escargot and diamonds, until scientists discovered the poor nutritional content of diamonds and the value in jewelry made from escargot. Experience time-tested lavishness with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a spa package that includes a facial, express makeup application, express facial waxing, and a blow-dry and style at Gordon's Salon & Spa (up to a $187 value). This Groupon is valid at three Chicagoland locations in Lakeview, Ravinia, and Highland Park.
For more than a decade, Gordon's Salon & Spa's savvy stylists and aestheticians have been pampering clients with soothing services and high-end Aveda products. Rejuvenate weary emoting muscles with a customized Elemental Nature facial, designed to invigorate both mug and mind with advanced botanicals and delicious aromas ($85). As the face is coddled, your feet or human talons can rest in a relaxing foot soak while your most curmudgeonly arm muscles and world-worn hands are massaged into sublimity. Next, one of Gordon's professionals will wield power over wax to scare away disorderly facial hair burrowed on the brows and upper lip (or brows and chin) ($37) before conducting a salon express makeup application ($25). A blow-dry and style will add the finishing touches to your freshened appearance while gently removing overzealously grazing scalp-top goats (up to $40, depending on your stylist).
Guided by socially conscious principles for more than 30 years, Aveda produces a full line of natural beauty products carried at nearly 7,000 salons and spas. Popular gorgeous-makers such as Shampure shampoo and witch hazel hair spray deliver on Aveda's commitment to well-rounded earthly beauty with eco-friendly packaging cradling ingredients derived from the world's finest and least selfish plants.
