Spa Week is back! That’s right, it’s the only time you can go to a lux L.A. spa and pay only $50 for a treatment that might normally be twice that. You can feel like a million bucks without having to feel like you spent that much.

This event, sponsored by Allure magazine, only happens twice a year in select cities (New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Francisco), so schedule your microdermabrasions, micropeels, facials, laser hair removal now before they get all booked up.

Cool Deals for $50:

  • Argyle Salon & Spa: 50-minute Cabana Massage (usually $110), in one of four exclusive outdoor cabanas with views of Los Angeles from their elevated terrace.

  • Escape Day Spa: 55-minute Egyptian Foot Awakening Reflexology Treatment (usually $70). Enjoy an essential oil and herbal infused foot soak kept warm with smooth river stones while sitting on an outdoor patio sipping tea. A skilled therapist exfoliates dead skin cells from your toes, heals and ankles and finishes off with an invigorating and therapeutic reflexology treatment.

  • Marc Edward Skin Care: 90-minute Signature Ultrasonicdermabrasion Facial (usually $155) with free high-tech skin analysis.

  • Pacific Waters Spa at Hyatt Regency: 50-minute Sea of Life Facial (usually $135), uses Hawaiian seaweed extracts, Red Algae, Dead Sea Crystals and French Green Algae to exfoliate and purify clogged pores. The marine-based products promote hydration and restore a healthy, natural glow to the skin.
