The Spa has hand-selected leading skin care and anti-ageing experts Black Pearl to be the official supplier of one of the most superior, opulent and sought-after skin treatments in the world. The Lux Perfection Treatment uses rare ingredients such as gold, Dead Sea minerals, Tahitian black pearl, vitamins, collagen and hyaluronic acid, found across the entire Black Pearl range.
Four Seasons Spa Manager Lucia Papalini explains that the 105-minute Lux Perfection Treatment is a sensorial experience that is well worth its weight in gold, leaving the skin appearing vibrant, fresh, radiant and smooth, with a flawlessly even tone. It begins with a rocking ritual designed to bring complete relaxation to both body and mind; precious stones are positioned on precise chakras points of the body to give energy within a short space of time.
After the ritual, the face is cleansed with an anti-oxidant enriched mousse infused with fresh melon and cucumber, a hyaluronic serum that is gently applied to the face under steam. An anti-oxidant algae mud is massaged into the hands before the 24 Karat Gold Cleopatra Mask is applied to the face and a collagen mask applied to the décolleté (chest area). The gold mask is finally removed using natural magnetism and the skin is massaged with precious citrine to promote lymphatic drainage.
“The Lux Perfection Treatment utilises the powers of one of the softest and most precious metals in the world. Recognised for its beautifying properties, the anti-ageing benefits of gold can be traced back 5000 years to Cleopatra. The pharaohs of ancient Egypt believed gold reflected the brilliance of the sun and by sleeping in a gold face mask every night, Cleopatra enhanced the suppleness of her complexion and preserved its natural luminosity,” explains Lucia.
The 105 minutes treatment costs EUR 550 per person.
