Diamonds and pearls and gold — it’s the stuff jewelry box dreams are made of. But the luxurious trio are also the secret to Delaire Graff Spa’s latest healing and anti-aging facial. The spa, which is part of jeweler Laurence Graff’s Delaire Graff Estate in Stellenbosch, South Africa, has collaborated with innovative skincare line Black Pearl on a treatment that combines the powers of diamond tip exfoliation, Tahitian black pearl powder, and 24 karat gold. The 90-minute indulgence begins with the application of Black Pearl Face Mousse Cleanser (to purify and balance) and diamond tip exfoliation (to remove dead skin cells and prepare for product absorption). Next up, it’s time for the Midas touch with Black Pearl’s 24k Gold collection of products. The brand’s gold-infused Devine Face Serum, Cleopatra Mask, Eye Elixir, and Day Cream combine to regenerate, reduce wrinkles and blemishes, lift, hydrate, and provide clients with an unmistakable glow.
