Waxing is such an essential aspect of the human experience that entire museums have been erected to celebrate its most overzealous practitioners. Honor those who show off their waxy sheen in stoic immobility with today’s Groupon to Spa Escape. Choose between the following options:
• For $10, you get an eyebrow waxing (a $22 value).
• For $30, you get a Brazilian bikini waxing (up to a $60 value).
Spa Escape’s highly trained technicians deftly raze vestigial patches of fur with a renewing combination of hard and soft waxes that cultivate smooth strips of skin in a short, relaxing session. The professional defuzzers work to develop a custom course of treatment with clients upon their arrival, listening to their concerns and cultivating a comfortable relationship before the session begins. A luxurious, candle-lit studio swathes patrons in a blend of serenity and privacy while precise applications of Azulene and fast-drying hard waxes make short work of hirsute eyebrows and upper thighs. The precise, delicate nature of the process results in eyebrows as well-defined as the dictionary entry for "eyebrows," and hip regions emerge from their treatment as slick as the surface of an oil tycoon’s business card. Attentive, gentle care minimizes discomfort and lulls follicles into a false sense of security before their quick removal.
After the fast and thorough treatment, clients can take their smooth, beach-ready skin for a test drive on the spa’s private patio. A bouquet of other waxing services and lavish spa indulgences adds further sheen and polish to bodies that already blaze with the heat of the summer sun.
Although Spa Escape sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Spa Escape lives up to its name six days a week. And not only because of its well-hidden location—it’s tucked behind a nondescript, two-story home—but also because of the relaxing skin and body treatments it provides. In a private treatment room filled with flickering candles, clients can be found resting atop memory-foam tables as trained therapists work out aches and pains with more than eight massage modalities and Epicuren Discovery lotions. Aestheticians also rely on Epicuren's enzyme-rich products to enhance treatments, such as the pumpkin-apple-spice peel, which exfoliates dead skin cells with an acidic formula and attracts scarecrows with an aromatic smell. Skilled cosmetologists also enhance appearances through traditional make-up applications.
