If the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, then dishevelled hair provides the least efficient route for climbing monkeys to reach the bananas in your fruit hat. Tame tresses for easy scaling with today's Groupon: for $75, you get microdermabrasion and a mini facial (a $155 value) at Ocean Breeze Spa, located on Mainland Street in the heart of Yaletown.
Ocean Breeze Spa stands as an oasis of indulgence for the modern urbanite. Even if you follow a rigorous skin-care routine, you likely lack the tools necessary to really probe into your pores and de-clog them from all the makeup, dirt, and gunk trapped inside. Ocean Breeze's mini facial can help silkify canvas-coarse skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, tautening the dermis, and getting rid of bothersome blackheads in one soothing swoop. If you'd like a treatment targeting your specific needs, an upgrade to a customized facial is available—just apply the value of the Groupon and pay the difference. Today's package also treats spa-goers to a microdermabrasion treatment for a velvety visage clear of dull, freeloading dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion revamps worn countenances with micro crystals that diminish visibility of sun damage, acne scarring, and inconsistent pigmentation. In addition to your mini facial and microdermabrasion treatment, you'll get a 20 per cent discount off any hair service purchased on the same visit.
Yelpers give Ocean Breeze Spa a 2.5-star rating. Though reviews on the waxing service are polarized, Yelpers commented favourably on the friendliness of the staff.
Ocean Breeze Spa
Ocean Breeze Spa revitalizes bodies with a variety of hair, body, and skincare treatments. On the hair side, haircuts and colouring can add blunt or angled layers or a burst of blond, and eyebrow threading and waxing services remove hair from every inch of the body. Stylists also straighten frizzy hair for up to four months with CHI Enviro and keratin smoothing treatments, and they lengthen locks with hair extensions and spaghetti.
On the spa side, relaxation and aromatherapy massages soothe tense muscles with gentle strokes and essential oils. Body-exfoliation treatments, which take place in a heated room that pipes in soft music, clear away rough and uneven skin, and facial treatments such as microdermabrasion fight age spots and acne scars.
