Luxury skin treatments often seem rather extravagant and chock-full of fancy ingredients, but today’s facial treatment puts the rest to shame: Cosme Proud is offering a mini-facial today, using their line of products made with 24 karat gold!
Rubbing gold on your face may seem a bit silly at first blush, but the delightful Mitsuko, Cosme Proud’s rep at Limelight Marketplace (6th Avenue at 20th Street), will take you step by step, explaining the science behind the luxe ingredients, and choosing the best formulations for your skin type.
The mini-facial includes exfoliation with 24 gold flakes, which dissolve into your skin. Of all the products, I think this one (pictured above) has to be my favorite – it doesn’t feel at all rough (like every other exfoliant I’ve encountered), but it really works. A minute after massaging it in, dead skin seems to magically remove itself. There was a noticeable improvement in the tone and texture of my skin afterwards. You really have to try it for yourself!
And today you can have a free mini facial with a $28 minimum purchase at Cosme Proud (located on the second floor of Limelight Marketplace). Appointments are preferable (212-559-3361), so head over and tell Mitsuko The Funky Apple sent you!
