A facial is the best way to express gratitude to your visage without splurging on diamond-infused lipstick or drawing hearts all over your cheeks with permanent marker. Shower facades with love with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a facial package at Oasis Wellness Centre & Spa (a $158 total value). The package includes:
- A personalized facial using Teye skincare products (a $108 value)
- $50 worth of skincare, aromatherapy, or beauty products
Using Teye skincare products, a collection developed in-house at Oasis Wellness Centre & Spa, a fleet of aestheticians diagnose and treat skin with one of three personalized treatment plans. Complexion experts begin the 65-minute Teye facial with a consultation to determine which of three categories skin falls into: dry or damaged, sensitive or irritated, or oily. Clients then undergo a seven-step refinement process, which includes a deep cleanse, exfoliation, mask, and etiquette lessons for rough-edged pores, followed by a final-touch mineral application. Dry skin finds moisture from products drenched with royal jelly, lavender, and hazelnut oil, and sensitive skin settles under the calming influence of Chinese tea extract and Roman chamomile. Oily skin controls secretions with the help of yarrow and rosemary extracts, and kaolin clay and oat flour soak up surface oil.
In addition to Teye skincare products, clients can use their $50 credit toward aromatherapy body care such as a body aroma soak ($23–$48) or foaming body wash ($19–$37) in a choice of three scents designed to relax, revive, and release. Talc-free mineral makeup adds a splash of colour to eyes ($26–$55), lips ($26–$29), cheeks ($42), and dorsal fins. Oasis' Egyptian-themed decor sprawls across 15,000 square feet with more than 30 treatment rooms, a yoga studio, and men’s and women’s locker rooms with eucalyptus-inhalation steam rooms. A cat statue stands guard over the front desk, watching as clients try to decipher their appointment schedules off the hieroglyphic-adorned columns in the lobby.
Oasis Wellness Centre & Spa
Chosen as the Gold winner for best spa and aesthetics studio in the Calgary Herald Readers' Choice Awards, Oasis Wellness Centre & Spa stretches across 15,000 square feet equipped with more than 30 treatment rooms staffed by experts in skincare, massage, and aesthetics. With a belief that spa treatments are not just a luxury but a necessity to overall well-being, the team welcomes guests to their ancient Egyptian-themed resort to slip into a snuggly robe and slippers while aestheticians soothe and treat skin conditions with their own skincare line, Teye Treatment. Amid a pyramid motif and pillars etched with hieroglyphics, mani-pedi pros perform hydrating paraffin pedicures and manicures, and the steam room envelopes patrons in a rejuvenating eucalyptus inhalation steam and the sauna works to extract body toxins, purifying pores and melting muscles the way a flock of baby dragons melts the heart. Helming the friendly team of staff members, president of the Oasis Wellness Centre & Spa, Peter Smed, told the Calgary Herald, "People love to work here," noting that the spa's size allows for convenient appointment-making, happy customers, and happy staffers.
