Ahh, the Spa. Nothing better than pampering yourself after a long, hot summer day.

And lucky for us, The Spa by Teddie Kossof houses all our beauty and wellness needs (complete with Virgin’s mood lighting, of course). It’s Chicago’s only certified Clarins spa and offers must-have treatments with the brilliance of Teddie Kossof – the premiere salon owner and creative stylist.

So whatever you indulged in this summer (pick your poison below) – it’s time to treat yourself again and get you back in tip-top shape for the fall.

If you’re a… “Fest Fiend”
Meaning: You went to all four days of Lollapalooza, three of Pitchfork, and participated in any of our afterparties in July…

Fest season might be the best season, but have you ever felt what we like to call “fest film”? It’s the way  your skin feels after all the sweat, the dust, and the booze.

The remedy?

Try a REVIVE scrub to revitalize your skin and give you a boost of energy (we’re still tired, too).

If you’re a “Bit of a Bon Vivant”
Meaning: You made it your mission to try every new restaurant pop-up and had one too many pizza dates (looking at you, foodies)…

Try our TRIM wrap. It reduces water retention and inflammation (so that extra hot dog at Wrigley really doesn’t even count).

Meaning: You trained for the Chicago Half Marathon, spent the weekends paddleboarding or joined an intramural softball team.

Make it easy. Enjoy the Hammam to detox, cleanse, and most importantly – relax

Meaning: You spent most of your weekends lounging at North Avenue Beach or on a boat…

First of all, we’re very jealous. But all that summer sun makes pedicures fade.

Accentuate that tan with a no-chip mani and a pedicure. Throw in a Soft & Smooth hands or feet massage to get rid of any rough beach edges.


Comment below with your summer personality and we’ll pick someone to win either a a Le Petit Facial or 30 min Swedish Massage. Go on. Treat yourself! 
*a winner will be chosen on August 31.
