Why the Victoria's Secret Angels are sporting gold faces.

Brace yourselves, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is coming.

In the near future we’ll once again be watching the world’s genetically-blessed don lingerie, heels and angel wings from the comfort of our couches… with snacks. Wearing tracksuit pants. Or is that just me?

The Angels are busy preparing themselves for the Fashion Show happening tomorrow in Paris. And there’s one common factor occurring among many of them. Gold faces.

Yes, they’re all sporting gold face masks.

The question we’re all asking? WHY?!

The answer is the benefits of 24 karat gold, friends.

Specifically Mimi Luzon’s gold leaf sheet mask that retails for $400 a pop. Ouch. Good news is it’s currently on special for $294…

“[The gold leaf sheet mask] provides the skin with immediate wellbeing, treats redness and fine lines and gives the skin a more even tone and a healthy glow,” Mimi Luzon’s website says.


If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, just look for a face mask with 24 karat gold in the ingredients.

Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask 150ml retails for $67.00 and if you’re feeling brave there are lots of sellers on eBay that offer 24k gold sheet masks. (Post continues after gallery.)

For a small taste of the 24 karat gold treatment, Australian retailer Lonvitalite sell 24k gold lip and eye masks for just $32.00 for a packet of six treatments.

Would you invest in a 24 karat gold face mask?
