Are Gemstones, 24-Karat Gold, Diamonds, and Caviar the Answer to Wrinkles? Spa Week Editor All Stories, Beauty, Skin, Spa, Spa Spotlight 1 Comment “You’re literally glowing,” my coworker said to me when she walked by my desk moments after I returned from a caviar and 24-karat gold facial. I didn’t know it then, but over the next few days my face was in for a whole lot of age-defying decadence. Even though my apartment is drowning in beauty products, my face is usually make-up-free every morning when I head to work. This is especially true on #MaskMonday, when we test out the latest masks that have made their way into the office. This Mask Monday the entire office was buzzing about the skincare treat we’d be trying out because just one little jar costs $995. You see, this mask was no ordinary mask. This was the Golden Touch Magnetic Facial Mask by Adore, and let me tell you, it’s one of the most decadent things I’ve ever put on my face. This gold mask is made with a unique combination of magnetic pure gold and proven age-defying plant stem cells. What makes it so special is its combination of 24-karat gold sprinkles and highly refined magnetic powder. They work in harmony with the formula’s plant stem cells to repair broken cellular regeneration by bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the skin. The pure gold in the formula has anti-aging effects, helps reduce the signs of sun damage, and let’s not lie– looks pretty awesome. For seven lovely minutes, this mask makes you look like a golden girl while working to ensure you don’t actually look like a Golden Girl. After applying the mask to my clean face, I had myself a mini photoshoot for seven minutes while I eagerly awaited to remove it. The reason I was so eager to get to the removal process was because I would be using a magnetic bar wrapped in a tissue to clear the mask from my face. It looked like magic as I moved the magnetic bar across my skin and watched as the mask flew off my face and onto the tissue. It even made a cool sound, the same one I imagine a tiny bumble bee would make. Once the magnet had done its job my face was left with a golden layer of nutrients which I gently massaged into my skin. As you can imagine, I looked quite luminous. So what had inspired this foray into decadent beauty products made from one of the earth’s most valuable commodities? It all started at Lia Schorr Day Spa when I received a caviar facial. I’ve tried a lot of facials, but never one with caviar so I was extremely interested in this one. As my facialist worked on my skin I asked her about the benefits of caviar in skincare and she explained that it’s a powerhouse when it comes to anti-aging. Caviar, it turns out, offers up a host of benefits when used in skincare. Not only is it nourishing, but it helps to refine texture, stimulates tissue growth, and pumps intense moisture into the skin with a mix of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. I also learned that it wasn’t just caviar being used on my face, but gold extract was also in the mix which would further reduce signs of aging. As frequent readers of the site may know, there’s nothing I won’t try if it promises to rid my face of wrinkles and fine lines so I was happy when I walked out of Lia Schorr with my skin glowing and wrinkles defeated (at least for now). I may have been on a little bit of a fancy pants high, what with all the gold and caviar being thrown at my face, when I decided I wanted to up the ante. Diamonds are a girls best friend, but would they be as kind to my skin? I certainly hoped so. Next on my list of must-try skincare was Diamond Anti-Gravity Firming Serum from Kristals, a skincare line based on the healing powers of gemstones. This serum is infused with diamond powder which prevents collagen degeneration and makes collagen firm and contract to reduce skin sagging and wrinkles. One of the serum’s powerful ingredients is Adipofill, a new wrinkle filler that fills and plumps lines around the mouth, lifts sagging eyebrows, and targets fat deposits on the upper cheekbones. Basically, this serum is made with diamonds and it’s packed with a brand new wrinkle filler. My heart swoons! With a $749 price tag, this serum better make good on its promises! I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but I’m looking forward to it and I’ll be sure to tell you when I do. Whether or not you believe diamonds, gold, and gemstones have healing power, there’s no harm in trying to harness it, especially if it leaves you looking like a golden goddess. If the Diamond Anti-Gravity Firming Serum and Magnetic Gold Mask are out of your price range (they’re most certainly out of mine) two alternative products that won’t break the bank are Bella Schneider Beauty’s Pot of Gold Scrub is just $45 and their Golden Glow Facial Kit sells for $95. The scrub is made with gold, amber, pure sugarcane, caviar and jojoba oil. After giving it a try, my skin felt silky soft and had a nice sparkle. The Golden Glow Facial Kit comes with everything you need for a luxe at-home spa experience for less. To start, cleanse face with Absolute Glow Cleansing Milk, then buff face with Pure Gold & Caviar Scrub. After that, apply four 24-karat gold leafs and add a small amount of Gold Drops Serum to each leaf. Gently massage until it is completely absorbed. To finish off the facial, simply apply Firm & Glow Serum on top. After using this facial kit, I was kind of obsessed with how radiant it made my skin. Since then, I’ve been using the Gold Drops Serum to feed my new addiction to the finer things in life and give my skin a gorgeous glow.
