What You'll Get
Smooth, tight skin can shed valuable seconds off your daily commute, as well as ease atmospheric re-entry if your boss fires you out of a cannon. Make your body as sleek and aerodynamic as a monohull yacht with today’s Groupon: for $55, get a Perfect Retreat package (a $110 value) at The Refinery. The spa is conveniently located next to University of Minnesota’s campus, so you can go on to do guest lectures about contemporary American skin-taughtening.
The Refinery’s Perfect Retreat package starts the process with a stress-melting back treatment amidst the spa's casual, zen-like décor. You’ll then have your choice of a body scrub (full-body exfoliation with Dermalogica's Body Microfoliant made of tapioca starch, oatmeal, and nut shells), body hydro-pack (Dermalogica body mask containing soy milk with apricot and lavender oils), or enzymatic sea-mud wrap (exfoliating mud with papaya enzymes and citrus oils). The Refinery carries the full line of Dermalogica products, ensuring that your skin will not have to suffer the clammy, sticky, Grandma-smelling caress of lesser lotions and crustacean-derived tinctures.
Escaping the incessant blaring of your next-door neighbor’s foray into experimental jazz tuba is only one benefit of visiting The Refinery. Besides rendering your body Slip 'n Slide smooth, the spa's attentive service and stress-busting treatments will significantly cut down on your transformations into the Hulk, so that you can finally wear something besides purple pants.
- The salon was very clean, busy and comfortable. I wouldn't call it an upscale spa atmosphere, but in Dinkytown, I wasn't expecting that. – hairchickmn, Citysearch
- I have been to The Refinery several times now - twice for bikini waxes and most recently for a massage. In each case, I have had a wonderful experience. – dlafayette, Citysearch
- My masseuse deserves to be thanked if I ever win any kind of award for any sort of achievement. – jenny A., Yelp
