Staring into the face of danger often helps overcome fears, especially if you’ve become totally distracted by its smooth visage. Bring skin into focus with today’s Groupon: £28 for a Dermalogica facial with a skincare lesson, plus a massage or Gelish manicure at ThameSpa.
A sanctified cocoon of calm tucked away behind a quaint chapel door, Thame Spa encases customers in products from the likes of Dermalogica, Spa Find and Bio Sculpture Gel. A high street salon and a luxury day spa, ThameSpa strikes a balance where male and female clients alike can be rocked by hair, beauty and holistic treatments. The salon is gifted with contemporary gadgets like Spa Jet massage tanks and far infrared therapy cabins, as well as packages using traditional nutrients of roots, flowers and the sea.
Reclining with complimentary refreshments, the 60 minute Dermalogica prescriptive facial (£48) endeavours to discipline problematic areas. The facial includes skin mapping and will use products suited to each skin type. A 15 minute class on skincare (£15) then aims to ensure the lesson is well and truly learned. Fingertips can be bestowed with meticulous cuticle work and a lick of hybrid gel-polish in a 45 minute Gelish manicure. Alternatively, customers may choose to spend 30 minutes oohing and aahing through a massage of choice. Options include a hot stone back, neck and shoulder (£36); a seated Indian head massage (£30); a lying down Indian head massage (£25); or a foot wrap (£25).
