So it was exciting to find a day-spa package that makes total sense for summer the Break Out The Bikini ($150, 75 minutes) at Spa Merge, a new spa in Midtown Manhattan. It includes a customized bikini wax (the spa has six types!), a body scrub, and an organic-leaning spray tan (its alcohol-free). A beauty maintenance trifecta!
I love how it handles all the issues a trip to the beach might present (save for the last five pounds Im always trying to shed). The only thing missing is a mani-pedi, but its not essential, since push comes to shove, I can do it myself. The bikini wax I could NEVER do myself, and a body scrub is really necessary before a spray tan, so why not leave that to the experts so you dont end up streaky? What seals the deal? The à la carte cost for the three services comes to $205. So I suppose I can use the $55 I saved for that mani-pedi.
