About Deal
    • Like a multi-layered Mexican bean dip or the seemingly simple plot of the Hunger Games, there's something awesome lying under the surface of your skin.

      Get ready for the big reveal. For $19 (reg. $42) we're offering a 90-minute Elemental Nature facial or a 2-hour Alternative Therapy body treatment at Douglas J Aveda Institute Chicago.

      The facial kicks off with a consultation and skin analysis with your esthetician, followed by a thorough cleanse, extractions, and exfoliation. Then, sink into Zen mode with a light face, shoulder, arms, hands, legs, and feet (basically everything but your back) massage. And for the grand finale: An Aveda mask targets your skin problems and a nourishing moisturizer—always a must—leaves you with a healthy glow.

      For the Alternative Therapy body treatment, an esthetician rubs a sea salt mixture all over your bod to buff away dead skin. Then you're slathered with moisturizer and wrapped in a skin-tight thermal blanket to trap nutrients inside. While you're chillin' in the wrap, you'll get a gentle cleanse for your mug and a light rubdown from head to toe.

      Not that Aveda's horn needs any tooting, but toot toot! Aveda Institutes are some of the top-rated beauty schools in the country. You'll leave your appointment looking like you spent a week in the Capitol.

From Yelp (where the Douglas J Aveda Institute Chicago has a 4-star rating from 239 reviews):

"I got a facial from Angelique. She was very nice and helpful, and the facial she gave me was very relaxing. I told her my neck and shoulders were sore, and so she paid extra attention to them. I recommend Angelique!" - Laurie S. (9/1/11)

"Violet made sure I was very comfortable. She spoke softly which helped me relax. Since it was my first facial, she also explained everything she was doing, which I found helpful. Overall, 2 good experiences with Aveda. I would go back again." - Anne H. (3/24/11)

"The facials I've received have been excellent. Long story short...definitely give Aveda Institute a try for hair and facial services! Definitely worth the time and (less) money!" - Kelly D. (5/8/11)

"Wow....That's all I can say about my facial yesterday. This facial was one of the better ones I have had. It is almost exactly like what you would receive at an Aveda salon but at half the price." - Joanne B. (4/25/11)
