Giveaway Goodness: La Residencia Spa

la-residencia-gold-facial.jpgWhether you traveled or stayed put during February vacation (or are chasing little ones sans "vacation"), no doubt last week left you in need of a bit of restoration. And how's this for awesome: as part of my Giveaway Goodness series, La Residencia Spa in Newton would like to slather one lucky reader’s face in gold! Sweet! La Residencia's 24K gold facial is a luxurious hour and a half long treatment that engages traditional plant-based techniques (e.g., marine scrub, herbal treatments, seaweed mask) then capitalizes on the properties of gold (via mask and massage) to smooth wrinkles, cool the skin, reduce inflammation, and render glowing skin. How can you not feel like a million bucks by the end?

To enter to win La Residencia's 24K gold facial, check out and follow the rules below by midnight, Sunday, Feb. 28.
