Goodness ME!: In the SPAtlight

I've blogged about ME! Bath products in the past here and here, and will again ( just wait until this month's spa party of the month). Recently, ME! Bath has made it even easier for you to incorporate their products into your own spa party with their new Ice Cream Social packages. These package allow party hosts and guests to recreate a version of the very popular ME! Bath Ice Cream Pedicure that has been featured in magazines and is offered in some of the best spas throughout the country. The Ice Cream Social takes some of the guess work and leg work out of throwing a spa party, by offering great products at a great price. The basic package is only $25 per person and includes a ME Bath! Ice Cream, their Ice Cream Sandwich pumice stone, a Nailtini polish, and coupon for future purchases from ME! Bath's online store. The hostess also receives ME! Bath's Shower Sherbet, and Body Icing to share, along with stationary and a how to guide to deliver the perfect Ice Cream Pedicure. While your at it, grab a pack of ME! Bath's Mini Bath Ice Cream for manicures or favors.

For an extra special Lazy Sundae treat, you can offer additional spa treatments that fit well with the ice cream theme. Facials are easy enough to administer and don't require complex equipment. Strawberries and bananas which are often associated with ice cream sundaes make exellent face masks when mashed with a bit of honey. For something a bit more decadent, how about a fudge facial... try using this recipe from Spa Index:

Chocolate Facial Mask

This decadent mask is actually an excellent moisturizer -- it leaves your skin baby soft. Recommended for normal skin.

1/3 cup cocoa powder
3 tbsp. heavy cream
2 tsp. cottage cheese
¼ cup honey
3 tsp. oatmeal

Mix all ingredients together (a bullet blender is ideal) and smooth onto face. Relax for ten 10 minutes, then wash off with warm water.


What to Eat?
Serving actual ice cream at your party is a MUST. In order to avoid serving ice cream soup, and to keep from pulling cartons in and out of the freezer, some people opt to use dry ice. The dry ice can be set in a larger decorative container, wrapped in foil and covered with a decorative cloth. One thing to be careful of when using dry ice is that your ice cream doesn't get too hard to scoop out.
If your looking for an alternative to cones, or bowls you can easily serve your ice cream in edible dishes. To do so, melt chocolate chips (or peanut butter, yogurt or caramel chips) over a double boiler, if the consistency is still too thick to spread easily add some butter, use a pastry brush to generously paint candy into large paper muffin cups, freeze long enough for them to set. Carefully peel back muffin paper to reveal your edible serving dishes, which can be served atop of chilled tile coasters.
