I bought a 24 Karat Gold Anti-aging Face Cream Firming Collagen Liquid & I am not sure how I feel about this product after first use.
It sure must feel amazing to have a 24 Karat Gold Serum on the skin after seeing one in Ray Spa on and seeing it glistening in the sun. What a radiant effect. I thought as I placed my order.
I anxiously waited and it came through the post quickly. I was pleased and doubts crept in. I was afraid to use the product. I wondered if I made the right decision.
Five months later, I found it sitting on the dresser and I felt to make a body butter using same product but I stopped myself. I used it by itself instead. Direct application on the skin.
It’s Monday, 1 Jan 2018, I committed myself to a day of butters, rotating and recreating a regimen and other skincare home service/ skin building. I quickly whip up a yummy and sweet smelling body butter and prepped my skin for this serum.
I was pleased that the product and bottle did not change its colour and I use the dropper to apply the liquid onto my fingers. It’s super soft and light weight. I did not think much of it.
I’m not sure how to use it. Could this be before the Vitamin C serum or after it? I did the former. I take a generous amount and work it into my skin using the tip of my fingers. In between letting it dry and watching “Sex and the City” for the umpteenth time, I take selfies. It dries off and I look in the mirror, no sparkle. Ok.
Basically, it is a 24K GOLD Essence: with gold as the raw material, the gold nanoparticles gently massage can be quickly infiltrated to the dermis layer. The release of active gold ion improves skin absorption 10 times more than ordinary creams.
Skin Care Efficacy: Because of the powerful 24K active gold revitalizing ability, the 24K Gold Essence can promote metabolism, brighten skin, anti-aging by smoothing wrinkles on your neck & eyes.
Active ions: Modern medical experts point out that gold contacts to the skin will release negative ions, positive ions and body interaction, to promote blood flow between ions, producing new energy, so as to improve blood circulation.
Sticky Moisturizing Essence: This pure 24K gold essence day cream offers moisturizing essence. Its stickiness helps hydrate your skin to have a nice makeup- ROPALIA
You can tell that I did not know if it was a “cream” or “essence”. It promised an instant glow, I was like “where?”
Yah, back to it. No glow? Ok. I read the pack again and it tells me to wash it off after 10-15 minutes of application and I do just that, continue with the rest of the regimen and went about my day.
It’s night time and I discover no difference and perhaps it’s too early to determine after one use.
Now I thought to keep it. It is nice to see it. I love the colours gold and black so it sits beautifully on my dresser, in my mind.
As I step out of the bathroom with towel in hand, thinking it’s a crap product, this serum/ Essence/ cream, I questioned my motive in getting this product. I was thinking I’d be a 24 Karat Gold kinda pretty. I hoped for the glow it promised. I envisioned the radiant and luminous skin of Cleopatra or was it Nefertiti? I searched and researched the benefits of using Gold on the skin. Collagen production. Elasticity. Suppleness. Glowing skin. Right!
I sit back and was sought solace that this product was inexpensive and I hoped not to break out in a couple more days. Oh well, I did not.
To use 24 Karat Gold on your face feels nice. To wash it off, err, not really. Did I feel good? yes! Beauty is about how you feel on the inside, that’s what they say. No?
Would I use it again? Ofcourse. I’m looking to see if consistency would make a difference. Oh what nice feeling it would be to see the skin glisten in the sun. Oh what a wonder, as I cleanse my face to end the day. Xx
