In the spirit of Valentine's Day and the love month of February, I'm sharing where you can find the best chocolate spa treatments this season in Chicago. You might be surprised with how beneficial chocolate actually is for your skin. From boosting your skin's moisture to speeding up circulation to firm skin (thanks, caffeine) and protecting it from wrinkles, chocolate is definitely a smart choice in the beauty category.
Double Chocolate Pedicure
I can smell the chocolate goodness now! I'm still working on visiting this Chicago favorite, but from the looks of it, Bliss Spa offers an amazing pedicure. Dunk your feet in a hot chocolate milk skin-smoothing soak and enjoy a tasty chocolate treat while your toesy get polished. Sounds like the perfect pedi for winter, right?
Location: Bliss Spa (at the W Hotel), Lakeshore
The Chocolate Love Facial
The Spa at the Wit offers Emenince Chocolate Mousse Hydration Masque to help fight visible signs of aging. We know that the rick cocoa is great for your skin and the sweet smell of chocolate will make you melt into the table having the most delicious dreams. I had to opportunity to try this mask and have to say, it took everything in me not to lick this chocolate-y goodness right off my lips! (but...good thing I didn't because that would have been bad haha)
Location: Spa at the Wit, The Loop (service available through February 2016)
Red Velvet Couples Package
You can always count on the spa at dana to bring the best seasonal treatments. Bring your partner or bestie and indulge in a 50 minute cocoa infused body scrub. Next, enjoy the velvety touch with a 50 min couples massage in their luxurious duet suite. Is it just me or are these treatments getting better and better? Please note, when purchasing this package, it is priced for for two people and essentially two services, so it will be a little bit pricier.
Location: spa at dana, River North (service available through February 2016)
A service with "chocoholic" in the title must be pretty great! I'm not as familiar with the Chocolate For Your Body Spa, but it sounds like a match made in heaven. If you're looking for a basic treatment but want a little bit of chocolate to sweeten up your service, this is the place for you to switch up your regularly scheduled mani.
Location: Chocolate For Your Body,
I hope everyone enjoys the weekend and has lots of chocolate!
