Insects and prehistoric animals accidentally perished and were persevered in amber during failed attempts to use tree sap for hair removal. Had they known sweet sugars could be so successful, museums would be stuffed with lollipop fossils. For $27, you get $55 worth of sugaring hair removal from Wild Earth Spa in La Verne. Wild Earth is an organic skin-care spa that's passionate about natural health and healing, specializing in natural, gentle sugaring.
Wild Earth's sugaring treatment uses a soft, all-natural, sugar-based paste that adheres just to hair, and because this paste is gently patted onto the skin and peeled off in the direction of hair growth, it's substantially less uncomfortable than traditional waxing. It's also more effective because fewer hairs break in the process and are therefore removed completely from their follicle foxholes. Wild Earth's sugaring mix is body temperature—not scalding hot—and completely sanitary.
Your Groupon covers the cost of one women's Brazilian bikini wax ($55), or Wild Earth's deft aestheticians can banish hair from the lip ($15), arms ($32–$35), legs ($55-$70), pancreas, and more. For a complete list of eligible areas and their costs, see Wild Earth's services menu. Buy two additional Groupons for friends to give as gifts that last a hair's lifetime. Call ahead to make an appointment; Wild Earth is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
Hair-removal services cannot be performed on anyone using Accutane, Retin-A, or Renova.
