Sugaring is less painful than traditional waxing, lasts longer, and provides a more palatable way to remove hair from a donut. Get sleek and sweet with today's Groupon: for $65, you get any two bikini hair-removal services at Skin So Sweet's Huntington Beach or Corona del Mar locations (up to a $130 value). Your second session must be scheduled within 30 days of the first.
Skin So Sweet boasts an extensive menu of beauty services but specializes in sugaring, the ancient art of defuzzing delicate areas that is designed to last longer, work better, and render replacement hair softer and more supple than traditional searing waxes. Professional strand banishers apply the organic sucrose paste at just above room temperature, aiming to nullify painful wax and razor burns while tempting even the shortest of hairs from their former home with candy bait. Four levels of nether fleecing are available, from the side-shearing Classic (a $45 value each) to the all-out Playboy style (a $65 value each). Patrons can also stamp bikini passports with half Brazilian (a $55 value each) or full Brazilian-style (a $60 value each) treatments.

Sugaring is an ancient hair-removal technique practiced widely in the Middle East, and at Skin So Sweet, owner Catherine Kooiman brings it to U.S. soil. In an interview with Coast magazine, Kooiman traced the practice to Cleopatra's day. At Skin So Sweet, beauty professionals use the all-natural substance to remove hair from any area of the body, yielding results that last significantly longer than shaving. True to Skin So Sweet's commitment to using natural ingredients, the company incorporates a signature line of products—free of paraben and laurel sulfates—into vitamin-packed facials and other beauty treatments.
