What You'll Get
Before battle, samurai warriors gently exfoliated and deeply cleansed their pores so they could slay foes with one sexy glance. Become an aesthetic warrior with today's Groupon for a treatment at Great Face & Body. Choose from three options:
- $38 for an Eco-Premium Facial (a $125 value)
- $26 for an Eco-Luscious Body Wrap (a $90 value)
- $26 for an E-Koh-Do Scrub (an $85 value)
Great Face & Body's skincare expert Keith West-Harrison incorporates 5,000-year-old Native American, African, and Auyervedic beliefs into beautification treatments:
The Eco Premium Facial will be tweaked to meet your skin's needs and innermost, hitherto unknown desires. Combining the power of homemade, non-toxic, environmentally sustainable spa products with steam and the fragrant extracts of pineapple, spearmint, pumpkin, and enchilada, West-Harrison will infuse your face with lift, youth, and a glow that would make old, saggy uranium jealous. For good measure, the aestheticians will reduce you to the consistency of microwaved butter by rubbing and wrapping your feet in a steamy towel.
The Eco-Luscious Body Wrap, a temporary mummification, coddles you in nourishing bands soaked in mineral salts, essential oils, and citrus pulp. The process firms and moisturizes desert-ravaged skin and concludes with a foot and scalp massage.
The E-Koh-Do Scrub is imported from Japan and couples stimulating incense and super-fine natural sugar for a polishing that rubs away dead skin, resulting in a hypnotic glow. The scrub comes in five elemental varieties: Earth, Air, Water, Fire, and Space—each with its own evocative scents and spellings.
The lifestyle store focuses on natural, organic, and sustainable body luxury; make an appointment at its plushy downtown location. Moreover, Great Face & Body's community-minded, total-heath mission extends even into its profits: the spa donates 10% of its proceeds to international aid group CARE and 100% of its natural, sexy radiance to impoverished villages without electricity.
An appointment is required.

About Great Face and Body
Keith West-Harrison can't squeeze his job title on one line of a resume. Yes, he's an aesthetician. But he's also a lifestyle coach, celebrity beauty advisor, humanitarian, and self-proclaimed "eco-urban shaman." In 2009, New Mexico Business Weekly included Keith's name on its annual "40 Under Forty" list, celebrating his entrepreneurial excellence and achievements at his airy, urban spa, Great Face and Body.
Amid gleaming hardwood floors, international decorations, and lots of black leather, the team at Great Face and Body caters to the skin needs of all ages. Specialists freshen frontages with both preventative and restorative facials, ranging from 20-Something treatments to the None-of-Your-Damn-Business facial for clients 60 or older. Services employ only organic and sustainable beauty products, which Keith and his posse develop and handcraft in the store using many locally cultivated ingredients. The spa also integrates 5,000-year-old Native American, African, and Ayurvedic wellness principles to provide a challenging tongue twister to any reporters who stop by for interviews.
