Before the age of manufactured cosmetics, women would smooch freshly painted fire trucks on a regular basis to maintain a scarlet pucker. Let a fire truck keep its coat with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cosmetics and beauty products at Peninsula Beauty. This Groupon can be used at all 10 Peninsula Beauty locations.
Peninsula Beauty carries more than 5,000 aesthetics enhancers from more than 200 well-known beauty brands, including OPI, Paul Mitchell, and Matrix. Change the stars, stripes, or hue of your coif with hair color from the Clairol Beautiful line ($5.49 each). A bevy of beauty-boosting cosmetics allows a gal to revamp her appearance, and flecks of Jane Iredale gold dust ($12) allow her to disguise herself as chocolate-bar wrapper. Settle in for a long soak with bath products such as Ahava honey bath salts (32 oz., $21.99) and bubble bath distilled from the now-extinct Aromasaurus Rex (16 oz., $15.99). Hard-working finger shingles and toe shells deserve a firm handshake and a fresh coat of Essie nail polish ($8).
Since the first Peninsula Beauty store opened in 1959, innumerable women have had access to products that enhance their natural beauty, and countless men have been given the means to perform makeovers on slumbering dragons. Peninsula Beauty also works to beautify the community through generous charitable donations.
