Recently I was lucky enough to be sent a few products from Orogold Cosmetics, a high end skincare line that uses 24 karat gold in all of their products. Needless to say, I was over the moon to be given the chance to try them out. I was sent three products including the 24K Oil Control Cleanser, the 24K Oil Control Day Moisturising Cream and the 24K Collagen and Seaweed Mask.
I’ve been using both the cleanser and moisturiser morning and night and have noticed that my skin feels so much more balanced with reduced redness as a result.
The cleanser has a lotion consistency and while it’s the first time I’ve used a cleanser that applies in this way, I found it to be extremely gentle on my skin. I’m aware that a lot of foaming cleansers do in fact contain harsh chemicals, which can lead to dry skin, in turn stimulating the skin to produce even more oil – not what we want! I was very pleased that this cleanser was so gentle, it contains tea tree oil which has antibacterial properties and is great for oil and blemish control.
Also containing tea tree oil as well as vitamins A and E, the 24K Oil Control Day Moisturiser had the same effect on my skin, it is extremely light and absorbs into the face very quickly, however it provides ample moisture - the perfect combination for an oily complexion. If you look at the product up close, you can actually see the flecks of gold within it.
The 24K Collagen & Seaweed Mask is my favourite of the bunch, it is hands down the most amazing face mask I have ever used. It claims to help restore moisture to aging skin and while I’m aware that I, in fact do not have aging skin, skincare specialists do claim that it’s best to start using anti aging products once you hit 25. Well, at the tender age of 26 I don’t see any harm in starting young, prevention is better than cure and all that! The main reason I love this mask is due to how moisturising it is, it really makes my skin feel so soft and supple. Another plus side is that once it has dried on to your face, unlike most face masks, it doesn’t crack! Say what?! Yes, you read correctly. You’re free to have a full conversation and even, wait for it…laugh! Yup, laugh, without ending up with a crumbled clay mess at your feet.
All in all, I’m seriously impressed with all of these products. Each comes in a very pretty box which contains an authenticity certificate stating that the product contains 24 karat gold which is sourced from Italy.
