All things Gold

Gold Leaf Facials are the craze in Japan. The treatment is available at thirty salons and spas. One session will last anywhere from one to two hours. The price starts at 20,000 to 30,000 yen which is 170 to 250 dollars. I am a huge fan of gold leafing, I just never thought about putting on my face or drinking it. Here are a few other gold things that are badass. Click on pics for descriptions and prices.
