I was invited to come to Golddust Beauty Lounge in Canggu to experience one of their signature 24 Carat Facials and being pressed for time and slightly sceptical (you might suggest ‘silly me’) I had been a little lazy in getting back to them.

However I had a free afternoon and said hmmmm I want to see what all the fuss is about and LADIES, let me tell you YOU MUST TRY THIS !!!!

I don’t believe the hype of many beauty products or treatments an follow a fairly boring kind of Cetaphyl cleanse and moisturise skin routine, so really what as a bit of 24 carat gold leaf going to achieve ????

Personally I  feel this blew my expectations out of the water.

Only a small day spa on Jl Batu Bolong, in Canggu and increasingly booked out ( please book in advance and ask for mini Komang) .

You enter Golddust to find a stunning array of affordable and soft luxury clothing.

You are then taken upstairs to a stunning quiet dimly lit seated area, where the mood and tone is set, immediately seducing you into a sense of calmness and a touch of luxury.

You are then taken to your treatment room and asked to slip on a silky little gold number and lay down on the table.

This is when the real experience begins.

The most subtle and beautiful facial cleansing, exfoliating, and toning process, with delicate hands and skilled massage techniques and delicious aromatherapy.

This all leading to the delicate placement of the gold leaf as pictured.

Now chat to the team at Gold Dust some more and I was at this point giggling saying to myself hmmmm more like ( bull dust) yes, yes sincere apologies to the team at Golddust, but have to be honest.

Whilst this gold leaf is in place,  the tiny mini Komang gave me the best head, should, leg and arm massages and left me to meditate( rest)  for a short amount of time.

The gold leaf was removed, and I was moisturised and feeling pretty awesome by now and she left me to get dressed.

I gave my skin a once over in the rather large mirror and thought hmmmmmmm I feel and look amazing.

My skin appeared fresh, clean, revitalised and I really must say glowing !

The wrinkles just a tiny bit less, the freckles and pigmentation a little less obvious and you know what most importantly it felt amazing.

I know this treatment wont be in everyone’s price range and I truly say my skin was beautiful for days after this treatment and possibly longer, they do have facials starting from around 350 000 Rupiah and other very professional salon treatments, I highly recommend you check out Golddust Beauty Lounge in Canggu as I truly think your expectations like mine where will be met if not blown away !
