Gold Elements Luxury Skin Care with 24K Gold and Truffles | Review
I have recently been awakened to the benefits of gold in skin care, and I have since been testing out a handful of gold-infused products by Gold Elements*. When researching, I learned that gold has been used in cosmetics for centuries, dating back to ancient Egypt. Apparently, Cleopatra would apply a gold mask at bedtime to maintain a youthful glow, and in Ancient Rome, it is said to have been used to treat a slew of skin ailments. Since gold is known for its property to remain unchanged and untarnished by time and the environment, it only makes sense that this natural element can also be used to enhance one's natural beauty while providing anti-aging benefits when applied topically! Let me break down how my skin care routine has been taken to the next level thanks to Gold Elements.
The first product I've been reaching for following makeup removal is the Gold Elements Intensive Multi Task Facial Cleanser. Not only does this cleanser help remove any leftover impurities, but it also acts as a light scrub thanks to apricot seed powder which helps slough off dead skin for ultimate smoothness. Applied on wet skin, I gently spread a small amount in circular motions all over my face, neck and décolleté, avoiding the eye area. It foams lightly and when rinsed leaves my skin feeling fresh and renewed. On top of gold powder, it also contains witch hazel extract, aloe leaf extract, jojoba oil and alfalfa extract. Despite having exfoliating properties, from my experience this cleanser is gentle enough for everyday use without causing irritation.
My skin is then ready for some moisturizing with the Gold Elements D'Or Facial Cream. This formulation infused with 24K gold powder coats the skin in a rich yet thin layer that does not leave the skin feeling greasy, but instead makes it silky smooth to the touch with the bonus of a radiant, glow-from-within effect. Some key ingredients of this facial cream include witch hazel, alfalfa extract, chamomile extract, linalool and eugenol. After only one use, I could not believe how healthy my skin looked and felt, and having used it for the past few weeks, I can say this cream has been a serious game-changer in my routine!
The Gold Elements Truffle Infusion Body Butter is the most divine-smelling of the bunch. Not only does it contain truffles - the crème de la crème of naturally-foraged delicacies - as well as youth-preserving 24K gold, but it also contains ultra-nourishing shea butter, scar-fading rosehip oil and soothing sweet almond oil and aloe leaf juice. It's definitely the richest body butter I have had the pleasure of trying! It leaves my skin smelling absolutely delightful, and the scent lingers, as in even 12+ hours following application. My dry skin is a thing of the past since incorporating this gem into my routine.
