What You'll Get
There's nothing more beautiful than the innocence of a child, unless that child is covered in pie filling. Outbeauty pie-gobbling youth with the help of today's Groupon: one of two revitalizing services at Shimmer, a Union Square tanning boutique. Purchase a Groupon for one of the following options:
- $50 for a FIT infrared body wrap (a $100 value)
- $18 for a level-two spray tan with prep spray (a $35 value)
Shimmer specializes in skin-based services for the discerning dermis. Today’s deal gives you the choice of targeting your surface elements with a UV-free spray tanning session, or subcutaneously with an infrared body wrap. Both auto-services are achieved without much help from human hands, although a skilled and friendly staff will be on hand to assist you at any time and answer questions ranging from “Am I doing this right?” to “Is it okay if I bring my pet squid in here with me?”
Level-two UV-free spray tans are completed with help from VersaSpa spray tanning technology, a pneumatic pigment blaster stocked to its rafters with a melanin marinade for sun-free tonal transformation. Over the course of just 60 seconds, clients are misted with a tanning solution at level two (or medium) intensity for a tan that’s just right for bronze-seeking Goldilockses. Your body will be gently blown dry after the mist, while the air remains purified and infrared heat lamps keep your soul sack toasty.
Alternately, a FIT infrared body wrap covers your entire body like a warm and sentient sleeping bag, which is thought to help reduce body fat and burn calories via radiant infrared heat. Lie back and relax as the wrap works its magic on fat cells over the course of 60 minutes. Temperature controls let you raise or lower the heat on four independent body heat zones, so sweaty feet can have a moment to breathe while a chilly midsection picks up the slack. Consult Shimmer’s FAQ page for a more detailed description of both the body wrap and spray tanning processes.
