We’ve all heard that diamonds are a girl’s best friend – and we reckon that philosophy applies to diamond-infused facials too. The Oriental Spa’s Perfect Ten Diamond Facial utilises diamond-infused products from luxury Spanish skincare line Natura Bissé that promise to leave you with a complexion just as luminous as any gemstone.

The treatment features a range of steps designed to roll back your “Skin Age Biomarkers”, with beauty wizardry that includes a high-tech LED mask, 24-karat gold pulse bar, gold and peptide-infused rubber mask, and rejuvenating massage techniques – all of which work to radically define contours, diminish fine lines and improve skin texture in just one session. Shining bright like a diamond never felt so good.

Price: HK$2,850 on weekdays or HK$3,050 on weekends for 90 minutes

There’s nowhere better to go get your glow on than the highest spa in the world – and those magnificent harbour views from The Ritz-Carlton Spa’s relaxation area are certain to ensure the best backdrop for an envy-inducing post-facial selfie.

Their super-potent Ultra V Facial utilises cutting-edge NANO heat technology to both stimulate existing collagen into action and boost production of new collagen – helping tone up and revitalise dull, puffy skin. With the help of scientifically-tested 111Skin products, your therapist will also perform a concentrated massage to your jowl and chin area, helping drain toxins and unclog your lymphatic ducts (mmm… sexy). Expect a visibly slimmer, smoother, more contoured complexion with extra-radiant skin to match.

Price: HK$4,480 on Monday-Thursday, HK$4,680 on Friday-Sunday and public holidays for 90 minutes

If you’re in need of an instant dose of get-up-and-glow, try the Intense Glow Treatment from award-winning French medi-spa EstheClinic. This non-invasive, pain-free treatment combines two different light technologies – IPL (intense pulsed light) and LED photomodulation – to rejuvenate skin from the inside out.

While this isn’t by design a relaxing facial, it’s all about maximum efficacy, with the targeted use of intensive light waves working to stimulate collagen production, even skin tone, reduce hyperpigmentation, decrease the appearance of pores, and brighten skin. The result? A noticeably glowing complexion, which we’re promised will only improve with further sessions – and yes, packages are available.

Price: HK$2,300 for 40-60 minutes

EstheClinic, 16/F, 8 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, Hong Kong, +852 3615 0919
