Gold has been a huge buzz word recently, particularly in beauty. From gold flecked lipsticks to pricey gold infused skincare products, it seems we’re all taking bling bling to the next level. Several beauty brands have created gold laced products touting health and anti-aging benefits for aging skin. One such brand I recently got turned on to is Oro Gold Cosmetics, whose line of products are infused with 24K gold. I decided to do a quick review plus a giveaway of $250 worth of product (info at the bottom).
I started using the Oro Gold Cosmetics 24K Vitamin C Facial Cleanser($128) and the 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum ($198) and I am feeling pampered. It’s easy to get distracted by the promise of 24K gold on your face but the ingredients in the products are very good. Both have Vitamin C, Vitamin E, retinol, vitamin A and green tea extracts. These ingredients help reduce inflammations, collagen production, decrease hyper-pigmentation and improve sun-damaged skin.
The 24K Vitamin C Facial Cleanser is a light formula that works double-duty to remove makeup and dirt off my face. It’s a clear formula that foams gently (a little goes a long way) to cleanse the skin. It doesn’t leave my face feeling tight, itchy, or dry and is one of those cleansers that I can use twice a day.
I didn’t really see any gold in the cleanser but then again the brochure says the gold leaves are beaten with a thickness of 0.07 microns. To give you an idea of how small that is, 1.o micron converts to one thousandth of a millimeter.
The 24K Vitamin C Facial Booster Serum is has a few visible 24K gold flecks that melt into the skin. It comes out in a white liquid but melts into the skin. Initially my face felt a little greasy but that was probably because I used too much product. Sometimes I forget a little goes a long way. I apply this right after applying my toner and before my moisturizer and eye cream. I’ve been using this at night because my skin is able to absorb the product and allow it to work its magic while I sleep.
Each package of Oro Gold comes with a certificate of authenticity stating that the 24K gold comes from Italy and labeled as a Genuine Gold colorant.
