The promise The Regenerating Gold Plumping Facial is an anti-ageing treatment that aims to make your skin appear younger by eliminating fine lines and brightening up the area around your eyes.
Step by step We’re shown to our VIP suite, which comes with private sauna, steam room and bath tub filled with warm water and rose petals. We’re given 30 minutes alone in here to enjoy the facilities, which open up our pores, preparing us for the facial. The treatment begins with a foot scrub, then lying on the treatment bed our face is deeply exfoliated with a copper-enriched peel to brighten up our complexion. An anti-inflammatory gold serum is then used to heal and regenerate our skin, and what feels (and sounds) like a crystal ball filled with cold water is rolled around our eyes, which, according to our therapist, will get rid of dark circles. It feels refreshing and rejuvenating. Our face, neck and shoulders are them massaged.
The result After 80 blissful minutes we feel wonderfully relaxed and our face feels thoroughly cleansed and deeply clean. Looking in the mirror, our skin is visibly clearer and glowing.
Pros The treatment is relaxing and thorough. You will feel revived afterwards.
Cons We’re hard-pressed to find any. Dhs855 (80 minutes), Dhs200 for VIP suite. Waldorf Astoria Spa
