Awards Season Beautifying with Spa del Rey's Red Carpet Gold Facial
The Golden Globes and the SAG Awards may be behind us, but the glamour of awards show season continues! With several more shows coming up, it's only right to celebrate the way the celebs do - by getting the fabulous skincare treatments they swear by...and live for! My current obsession? The newest treatment at Spa del Rey at the Ritz Carlton Marina Del Rey: the Red Carpet 24k Gold Facial!
I was invited last week to visit Spa del Rey (which, P.S. is nestled near the hotel's gorgeous pool and sky high palm trees - the perfect view!) to try out the treatment and I could hardly contain my excitement. It's no secret that I have quite the obsession with anything involving gold, and had never experienced a facial that incorporates actual 24k gold into a skincare treatment! It was so fitting for me to try, and so exciting that it is offered at the Ritz Carlton.
From the moment I arrived, I was instantly welcomed with warmth and vibes of relaxation. I began my treatment with a brief visit to the sauna (I am such a sucker for steam rooms!) to help open up my pores. I was then taken into my room to start the treatment.
I have naturally oily skin, so my amazing aesthetician began with a pre-treatment toner on my face to brighten, balance and hydrate. She followed with an intensive exfoliation called Apple Peel on my face to resurface and smooth any dullness and roughness in my complexion. I loved this as it had anti-wrinkle perfecting crystals in its formula! She followed with an additional strengthening peel and also used a high frequency light to highlight over my blemishes in order to increase healing time. In just a few moments, I already felt my skin get smoother and my blemishes diminishing!
The highlight of the facial was of course the part where the gold came in! The 24k Gold Complex Gel Primer was a cool, firming gel that was put on my face. The 24k Gold Complex Gel Primer was a lightweight, leave-on formula designed to deliver the optimal facial-lift.
The primer provided anti-aging benefits of hyaluronic acid, peptides, gold and algae extracts. Firming ingredients DMAE and alpha lipoic acid help tighten and tone for younger-looking skin. My aesthetician also informed me how amazing gold really is for your skin because it contains so many minerals that benefit the complexion for anti-aging. As a gold lover from the start, this just solidifies my love for it!
After the gold primer process was finished, an algae powder mask was lathered all over my face to seal in the benefits of the gold. This helped to make sure all of the nutrients and anti-aging elements were locked into my skin!
Additional intensive products used in the treatment was a multi-performance peptides, pearl peptides and peptides antioxidants eye cream, an oil free hydrator, and a Vitamin C & hyaluronic acid serum.
When my facial was complete, there were truly no words to describe how fresh and clean my face felt. My skin felt firmer and it felt like it could breathe again! I was in awe of how quickly I could feel and see the benefits. My skin was glowing and a little over a week later I can still see how much my skin improved.
I had such a lovely experience at Spa Del Rey and would recommend the Red Carpet 24k Gold Facial to anyone who needs a refreshing boost to make their skin radiant, fresh and young-looking! It is a one of a kind facial perfect for celebrating awards season because not only will it leave your skin feeling like a million bucks, but the entire experience is as glamorous as the stars who receive the same types of skincare treatments. After the Red Carpet 24k Gold Facial, your skin will be glistening, and of course be red carpet ready!
