The Spa At The Hotel Hershey Debuts Its First Edible Chocolate Treatment in February
Fulfilling guests’ desire to taste signature chocolate treatments, The Spa At The Hotel Hershey introduced a new edible chocolate product for its Cocoa Facial Experience on February 1. This experience is the first of its kind not only at the Chocolate Spa, but also at resort and destination spas throughout the United States.
The Spa At The Hotel Hershey has partnered with the European-based company Bernard Cassiere to launch this indulgent treatment that’s rich in antioxidants. Using an anti-stress formula, the facial brings a radiant, softened look to the skin.
The Cocoa Facial Experience begins with a warm foot bath, during which the guest learns about the history of Milton S. Hershey and his ties to the Spa, its décor and its other treatments. A hair-brushing technique is incorporated, along with a citrus cleansing and exfoliation ritual to prime the skin for an edible dark chocolate mask.
The mask is first applied to the lips to sample before being painted on the rest of the face, incorporating the senses of taste and smell. The mask is then removed with a soft spatula – yes, like bakers use! – and a warm towel, creating the aroma of baking brownies.
The facial ends with a protective tinted moisturizer to give the skin a cocoa-kissed look.
The Cocoa Facial Experience lasts 75 minutes and costs $165* Mondays through Thursdays and $170* Fridays through Sundays.
Other signature chocolate treatments at The Spa At The Hotel Hershey include the Chocolate Bean Polish, Chocolate Fondue Wrap, Chocolate Sugar Scrub, Cocoa Massage and patented Whipped Cocoa Bath.
