The menu at the expansive new La Prairie spa offers extravagant, once-in-a lifetime experiences—like a $1,000 White Caviar Illuminating facial, for example. Looking for something a tad less expensive? Our tester loved the 90-minute Pure Gold Radiance facial, which features the brand’s Cellular Radiance Concentrate Pure Gold, a collagen-boosting serum with flecks of 24kt gold to instantly brighten skin. After a firming mask with chamomile and blue algae, plus two separate applications of the serum, our reporter left with an ultra-hydrated, multimillion-dollar complexion.
