Think of it as FarmVille for the beauty set. Clarins' new Facebook game Spa Life allows users to build and manage their very own spas—virtually. 

How it works: design your spa space, hire Facebook friends as employees—then manage your space well enough that you earn Clarins treatments and products. But the game's not all cucumber water and massages. You will face real spa-industry issues (e.g. customers who throw temper tantrums—or who leave if they've been in the waiting room too long). Clarins plans to eventually translate game points into credit for real-world Clarins products. Who knew gaming could make you look so good?

Spa Life already boasts 128,00 monthly users. Click here to start playing.
