Who doesn’t love splurging for a spa day? Yet, finding the time for such an indulgence isn’t always easy, so you may have to find ways to enjoy a bit of the spa experience at home. To give you the same exquisite pampering and salon-quality upkeep at home, we’ve selected five spa and beauty home care products that will make you look and feel your best every day.
Shining bright like a diamond might sound very 2011, but a healthy, luxurious glow is timeless. To get this, try Rodial’s new Pink Diamond range, which is infused with diamond powder. The Instant Lifting Serum (HK$2,700) is a high tech formula that works to firm and smooth away wrinkles, and also helps regulate melanin production to correct pigmentation and give you a more even skin tone overall.

Inspired by the ancient wisdom derived from the beauty rituals of geishas, Tatcha’s latest Gold collection adds an extra sprinkling of luxury by producing richly moisturising products infused with 24-carat gold. The Camellia Beauty Oil anchors its formula on the elegant, winter-blooming Camellia flower, which has been used for thousands of years by Japanese divers and farmers to protect against the elements, due to its intense moisturising capabilities. The beauty oil is targeted for people of all skin types, and works especially well on dehydrated skin. Just a few drops will suffice — and you can use it everywhere, including your face, body, and hair.

These days, a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion treatment is considered an industry staple in most spas. To help you slough off all the dead skin cells and impurity build-up is a new line by luxury spa favourite Natura Bissé — the Diamond Instant Glow set. It sadly doesn’t contain or use diamond per se, but is a high tech, three-step spa serum treatment delivered via ampoules. The first step uses ingredients like glycolic acid and fruit acid to help get rid of dead skin cells, smoothen the skin and generate collagen. Step two is a moisturising emulsion, helping to soothe and bring back firmness to the skin. The final step uses a blend of herbal ingredients and macromolecule collagen to further tighten pores. The result: a brightened, even and soft complexion without even stepping out of your home. Sounds like a win-win for us.
HK$780 for four uses at Natura Bissé, Shop 153, Beauty Gallery, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty, Hong Kong, +852 2918 1583

If you work a desk job, you’re no stranger to tired eyes. Rejuvenate your peepers with French boutique brand SÉLA’s mineral gold range which — you guessed it — is all infused with gold. Other ingredients also include the almighty hyaluronic acid and “Botox in a jar” argireline, and aside from helping to refresh tired, baggy eyes and dark circles, the gel also leaves a slight gold shimmer on the skin for a gorgeous highlight effect.
