- $99 for a mud party for two, including muds, scrubs, and snacks ($175 value)
Couples put on robes and relax in a heated private room where they'll prime their skin with sugar and salt scrubs and enjoy a tray of exotic nibbles from Gelson's Market. Staff will then provide instruction on how to apply the different muds, which include Hungarian, Austrian or French Sea Clay, and explain the unique skin-nourishing properties of each. The package lasts 1.5-2 hours
La Dolce Vita Spa
Just walking distance from the Long Beach Convention Center lies a 2,000-square-foot oasis and two-time MyFoxLA Hot List winner. The historic downtown building houses five couples indoor or outdoor suites where aestheticians and massage therapists perform a variety of facials, massages, scrubs, wraps, soaks, baths, and nail art. Their menu of international therapies borrows seaweed mud and traditions from France, Italy, India, and the Middle East, and their medical facials are performed under the direction of a board-certified dermatologist. In addition to individual clients who arrive solo for a day of pampering, La Dolce Vita invites groups celebrating birthdays, wedding days, and spa-appreciation days.
