Extraterrestrial sightings often depict aliens as smooth and glowing figures, leading scientists to conclude that Halley's Comet is actually an intergalactic mobile day spa. Radiate through the cosmos with today's Groupon to Whip Salon & Spa. Choose between the following options:
• For $49, you get a one-hour Elemental Nature facial (a $100 value).
• For $120, you get a 90-minute Aveda resurfacing tourmaline facial (a $150 value), a half-hour relaxation massage (a $70 value), and a 20-minute firming eye treatment (a $25 value; a $240 total value).
As an Aveda concept salon and spa, Whip Salon & Spa turns spa services into beauty rituals that stimulate every sense through signature aromas, teas, and products at least 97% botanically derived. The one-hour Elemental Nature facial customizes a regimen based on a consultation and skin analysis. A steaming and extractions awaken new vigour in visages, and a massage soothes hands, arms, scalp, feet, and legs.
A nonabrasive alternative to microdermabrasion, the 90-minute tourmaline facial strives to refine skin texture, shrink pores, and outsmart Father Time. While charged minerals scrub and hydrate the skin, bodies plunge further into relaxation as massage dances across the scalp and extremities. The half-hour relaxation massage continues to lovingly knead the body like a shapely ball of naan dough, relieving tension with the help of Aveda's Pure Fume collection. Ocular areas refresh beneath the firming eye treatment, during which a 20-minute massage and mask combat puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, and overzealous clown makeup.
Whip Salon & Spa
Natural light streams through windows to rebound off suspended styling mirrors at Whip Salon & Spa. As an Aveda concept salon, Whip trains staff members in how to best incorporate the botanical product line in their haircare and spa services. The treatments beautify clients with natural ingredients that preserve the environment and the tenuous ecosystem that exists inside every pore on the face. In addition to tropical body wraps and Eastern massage techniques, staff delivers mani-pedis with OPI polish as clients recline on the pillow-top pedicure station of polished wood and Eastern-inspired fabrics.
