Gold facials are known to add that special glow and sparkle to your face. But for that truly divine dazzle, platinum is the way to go. So if you wish to treat your skin to the wonders of platinum just head straight to the spa at Ritz-Carlton, New York. The spa is offerings its customers The Platinum Rare Facial, a $410, 90-minute treatment. The special facial treatment makes use of La Prairie’s Platinum Collection. One of the most luxurious ways to pamper yourself, the 90-minute experience includes a massage and facial in one. It’s performed by both a nail technician and an aesthetician, the former soaks, scrubs and swathes the extremities in the brand’s lavish products while the latter massages the neck and shoulders. The luxurious facial comes to an end with the application of Cellular Cream Platinum Rare (which reportedly retails for $650 an ounce).
The pampering experience begins much before the 90 minute facial treatment with guests being invited to relax in the chic locker room and lounge that is finished in soothing marble and boasts of a steam room with a tub of ice and cucumbers waiting outside, and a corner with chairs, fresh fruit, and dried snacks. The guests then choose the kind of music they want to listen to during the treatment.
Ritz describes it as “an experience that transcends the ordinary in every way with age-defying benefits.” We are forced to nod in approval.
