OROGOLD is the trendy luxury skin care brand that infuses all of its products with 24 Karat gold.
I headed over to OROGOLD’s brand-new Madison Avenue flagship store to experience their signature VIP facial treatments.
Each VIP treatment contains an expertly-blended combination of the brand’s most exclusive, expensive products (some costing several thousands per bottle). The benefits include glowing skin, minimized signs of aging, skin-tightening and moisture replenishment.
Personalized skin consultations and treatments are complimentary with the purchase of a product.
The boutique glitters with luxurious and modern amenities, product sampling tables and immaculate displays of product collections. In the back of the store, a door leads to the VIP Suite, where clients can experience OROGOLD’S signature facial treatments.
I met my facialist, a super sweet and truly professional skin care expert. We began with a skin consultation, during which she analyzed my complexion and asked about my skin care preferences, concerns and goals. After reviewing the menu of treatments, I chose “The Diamond Freeze,” which incorporates the 24K CryogeniC Collection, a line of products that promotes vibrant skin and diminish signs of aging or exhaustion. To my excitement, my facialist decided to apply the precious 24K Caviar Elastin Resoration capsules as a bonus for my facial. Each capsule ($1,500 for a whole bottle) contains a gold-infused serum that softens skin and minimizes wrinkles and expression lines.
The Diamond Freeze is an age-defying vitamin-infused facial treatment that includes over 100 of OROGOLD’S signature ingredients, including diamond dust, gold, crushed pearl, caffeine, green tea and shea butter to help improve the appearance fine lines and wrinkles.
My skin specialist applied the mask, focusing on my under-eye area (as per my request). Moving her fingers in slow, upward strokes, she worked the concoction into my skin. The mask had an invigorating, cooling sensation, and since I booked my treatment in the evening after a busy work day, it was pleasantly and unexpectedly re-energizing.
The entire experience took approximately 20 minutes. I would imagine the treatment time could potentially vary, depending on individual preferences; as I mentioned, I wanted to focus on the eye area. My facialist listened closely to my skin concerns and knew just what to do. After gently removing the face and eye products, my makeup-free complexion was literally glowing.
Fresh-faced and dewy, I profusely thanked the OROGOLD team for transforming my face from tired to well-rested, and walked out of the store with a smile. My complexion looked youthful and clear. I dabbed on a sparkly lipgloss and decided to have a post-spa espresso at the Nespresso cafe just a few blocks away. I later checked myself out in the ladies room, and because the treatment made my complexion look practically flawless, I couldn’t even tell that I had no makeup on.
