Regular facials often lead to a glowing complexion, compliments from total strangers, and the ability to purchase Happy Meals without a fake ID. Retaste the cuisine of childhood with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a Beauty C facial at Le Jardin At The Spa, located in Pleasant Hill (a $130 value).
Le Jardin At The Spa, a four-cottage salon compound nestled inside an acre of greenery, houses owner and founder Nancy Robinson and her experienced staff of skin smoothers. The Beauty C facial begins with a face-slathering solution packed with 25% vitamin C and pure seaweed, which upstages fine lines and wrinkles with its natural ingredients and showy rendition of “Cabaret.”
Le Jardin’s age slayers then coat pores in an orange-peel mask that helps the vitamin C reach deeper epidermal layers. While faces drink up nutrients, patrons can relax in Le Jardin’s cozy, soothing setting, accented by polka-dotted pillows, bright blue walls, and photos of glamorous film stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Rip Torn’s beard.
Le Jardin at the Spa
The arched gate of Le Jardin at the Spa opens to a concrete path that leads to four small cottages where tranquility abounds. The refurbished four-cottage compound houses a full salon and spa, where clients take a mini vacation from the stresses of day-to-day life with full-body massages and relaxing facials that cleanse skin with Image and Pevonia skincare products. Inside, stylists remove split ends and salvage damaged strands with a five-step conditioning process and crossed fingers. They also host spa parties, which often include a sparkling-wine reception and decadent desserts. With the purchase of any five regularly priced spa services, clients may host their own spa party for free and bring their own food, drinks, and friends.
