No matter how many shared hobbies, interests, and experiences two people have, their faces will never be exactly the same. Celebrate the self-establishing element with today's Groupon: for $62, you get a Mediterranean antioxidant facial (a $115 value) and an anti-aging hand treatment (a $10 value) at ReNew Organic Skin Care (a total $125 value).
Renew’s talented aesthetician Shelley Birnbaum whips up custom visage-pampering treatments that earned her top honors from Baltimore City Paper in 2007 and from Baltimore magazine in 2008. After an initial skin analysis, Shelley will deep-clean skin using a custom crafted mix of organic alpha-hydroxy acid or fruit enzymes and mechanical exfoliation on face and neck. Each Mediterranean facial indulges dry-witted skin with organic herbs such as grape-seed oil, olive oil, and pomegranate-seed oil. Facials finish with extractions and a moisturizing lineup including a hand-mixed mask, serum, and eye cream, allowing spot-on impersonations of dangerously attractive supervillian Dr. Smoothface. A stress-relieving face, neck, and shoulder massage relaxes the body’s second floor, while the anti-aging hand treatment allows clients to bid adieu with youthful goodbye waves. ReNew's green touches are evident everywhere, from interiors lined with eco-friendly paints to its earthy and enthusiastic staff.
Parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, and genetically modified ingredients don't belong in any of the skincare products used by master aesthetician Shelley Birnbaum. Driven by a passion for eco-friendly practices, as well as a dedication to providing effective spa treatments, Shelley decided to only stock and employ balms and salves made from organically derived materials. But she wasn't content to merely vend these products—she began making them herself.
Along with her ReNew Botanicals Organic & Vegan line, Shelley draws on a handful of other trusted brands to naturally treat a wide range of skincare concerns. Her facials soothe complexions and address signs of aging with such earth-loving components as grape seed oil, olive leaf powder, and odes addressed "To That Really Nice Field." Many of her treatments are vegan, ensuring any client can stop by for a refreshing pick-me-up.
