Over the last few years, the price of gold has been worth a fortune. And now a British company claims their golden threads will make you look like a million bucks.
Proskins, which makes “innovative and high quality fitness garments,” is currently selling leggings that contain 24 karat gold (no, that wasn’t a typo). Their purpose — to eliminate cellulite.
Here’s the exact description of the item from the company’s website: Proskins GOLD is a revolutionary new anti-ageing beauty treatment that reduces the appearance of ageing, skin cells increase Hyaluronic Acid production and therefore, the skin gets moisturized, avoids wrinkles and recovers it's youth and elasticity. Price: $197.57
PS: As of this afternoon, this item is out of stock.
I must admit I was highly disappointed when I clicked on the site to discover a plain pair of black leggings since I was expecting a tighter version of the MC Hammer parachute pants. Be that as it may, I then stumbled across more must-have gold items on this site -- gold gloves (which will take away the old lady hand look for $72.00), a gold mask (which will take away the old lady eye look for the same price) and the gold gloves and mask set for $120.00
PS: As of this afternoon, they have sold out of the gloves and masks trimmed in black.
If you’re hoping these gold-lined luxuries have the ability to keep you from looking like a Golden Girl, then by all means shop away. Call me skeptical, but something tells me these items may not fulfill your beauty wishes. If anything, I have a hunch the street where these leggings are manufactured are paved with fool’s gold.
