Looking your best lends you a royal air, as does denouncing representative government to anyone who will listen. Mimic a monarch with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $20 for one signature facial with customized mask, clarisonic deep cleansing treatment, and exfoliating peel (a $50 value)
- $75 for four signature facials with customized mask, clarisonic deep cleansing treatment, and exfoliating peel (a $200 value)
An aesthetician begins the 30-minute signature facial by thoroughly washing skin with a Clarisonic hand piece. The device’s rotating brush loosens and lifts away impurities with greater efficacy than manual washing. Then, the aesthetician softens skin with an exfoliating peel, decreases signs of aging with an antioxidant-rich mask, and brightens eyes with a specialized treatment.
Merle Norman Cosmetics and Day Spa
In the late 1920s, the Great Depression was rendering most Americans professionally and financially paralyzed. But in a small California kitchen, Merle Norman was putting a plan in motion to formulate her own skincare products and share them with family and friends. She truly believed in her formulas, knowing that by getting them on as many faces as possible, she would develop a following of customers. She was right—within a few years she and her nephew were opening their first studio in Santa Monica, and they eventually unveiled a series of independently operated stores that enabled women to take ownership during a time of gender-based limitations such as men-only restrooms.
Today, in approximately 2,000 stores across three countries, the three basic principles of Merle's original vision still apply. Each studio is independently owned and fosters an in-depth knowledge of the company's own line of makeup and skincare products. Just as Merle shared her creations with close friends and sallow mannequins more than 80 years ago, today's aestheticians embody the business's "try before you buy" philosophy. A menu of complimentary studio services—from foundation checks to express facials—allows patrons to sample the lauded brand before committing to the purchase of products or full spa treatments.
