Get Your Sugar Fix Sans Calories With This New Beauty Treatment

1
Brown sugar, cocoa powder, oatmeal...no, you're not reading a recipe for cookies, these are just some of the ingredients in the new Cocoa Wrap treatment at Paul Labrecque salon. The pampering (and detoxifying!) skin makeover is perfect for ladies with a sweet tooth — and this sugar won't go straight to your thighs.
The treatment starts off with an exfoliating scrub — think flaxseed oil, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper — that stimulates blood flow and relieves tension. Next comes the chocolate: You'll get covered in a heated mixture and wrapped in a warm blanket, meant to soften your skin to near perfection. When all is said and done you'll feel extra smooth, and you'll smell good, too!
And the best part? For a limited time, Paul Labrecque is offering 10% off the $185 treatment, making it the perfect V-Day gift for the gal who has everything — or the gal who's man has no idea what to get her. So go on, send a hint over to your S.O...we won't tell.
Paul Labrecque, 171 East 65th Street (between Lexington and Third avenues); 212-988-7816.
