Sue Harmsworth, the jet-setting, straight-talking founder of ESPA, was in town this morning to introduce ESPA's new products to a group of local bloggers. Who, naturally, couldn't wait to pounce on this Chicago bragging right: The Peninsula Spa on Michigan Avenue is currently the only location in the country to carry ESPA's Optimal ProSerum. (It won't be available in other places until 2014.) The $85 magic potion is available for retail, it's also being used in personalized facials at the swank spa.
