All that glitters is gold at Bangz Salon and Wellness Spa

Bangz Salon in Montclair is my go-to for 24-kt gold facials.

If you’re looking for an unusual, truly special holiday gift, pamper yourself or someone else with a decadent facial experience at Bangz Salon & Wellness Spa in Montclair, N.J. This is the perfect time of year to rejuvenate your sun-kissed summer skin their new Gold Collection.

I checked it out and discovered that gold facials were inspired by Cleopatra, who preserved her beauty by sleeping with a pure gold mask on her face to maintain a radiant complexion. Debra Helias, skin care director at Bangz, told me that the spa’s 24-kt Gold Facial and Gold Hydrating Body Polish boost blood flow, spread cellular processes, restore elasticity and create a glowing, even skin tone.

Of course, I had to try this shimmery splurge for myself, so Debra gave me the royal treatment for about an hour. My skin loved being infused with precious minerals and, even after I left the spa, tiny, subtle flecks of gold were still evident in my complexion. This would be fabulous before a holiday party or special event like a New Jersey wedding.

Bangz offers a variety of gold treatments, but Debra says these are her most popular:

24-kt Gold Facial
This treatment of gold elixirs, caviar ampoules and an application of gold infuses the skin with brilliant illumination. Gold encourages cell regeneration, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and makes skin appear firmer and thicker. $155.

24 kt. Gold Hydrating Body Polish
This luxurious anti-aging treatment begins with a gentle dry-brush exfoliation, followed by gold and caviar body polish. The body polish is comprised of amber, pure sugar cane, rich caviar and hydrating jojoba oil. A vichy shower then removes the body polish, leaving skin silky smooth. Finally, a lotion application of honey gold caviar cream is applied. $130.
