Skincare Review, Ingredients: Oro Gold 24K Vitamin C Facial Booster Serum, Deep Day Moisturizer Cream - How To Soothe Skin Irritation

When I told my young children that I was about to try a moisturizer infused with GENUINE GOLD, they began to “ohh” and “ahh” at the concept. I received the Oro Gold 24K Vitamin C Facial Booster Serum ($198.00) and 24K Deep Day Moisturizer Cream ($28.00), as a “Hot Stuff Giveaway” gift for audience members at the Wendy Williams Show.

Although I am a tad skeptical by nature, I left the show excited to try a product that combines the purest form of a most-treasured mineral with vitamins E & C. I had read about the new gold creams on the market, and the fact that scientists and doctors were discussing the anti-aging benefits and antioxidant properties of this ancient metal.

I had also read that Cleopatra used a pure gold mask to keep her skin looking its best. I wondered if my own skin would shine and glow as a result of   using the products – in much the same way that gold does.

After days of applying Oro Gold’s 24K Vitamin C Facial Booster Serum and Deep Day Moisturizer Cream, I noticed several things: While I really love the silky feel of the serum, I learned to use very little on my face! I emphasize those words because if you are about to try the serum, you must apply it sparingly. On the nights that I used a pea-sized amount of the product, which easily spread across my face, I then applied a light layer of the moisturizer over it.

My skin was clear and supple in the morning. I don’t have wrinkles except for a crease between my brows, so I zoomed in on that specific area for inspection. I didn’t notice any significant difference in its  appearance, but appreciated the overall smoothness of my face and I will continue to keep an eye  on that crease in the coming months.

The Deep Day Moisturizer Cream does not contain an SPF, so use a foundation that contains SPF 30. The 24K Vitamin C Facial Booster Serum and Deep Day Moisturizer Cream work together to form a great primer, so you don’t need that extra product.

My foundation went on beautifully over each of these products, individually and together. If you’re worried about being over-moisturized (i.e. if you have combination skin that has a tendency to get oily in the T-Zone), just use the silky serum and an SPF foundation over that. I did this one day when I paired the serum with Cover FX Total Coverage Cream Foundation SPF 30 ($42.00) — it barely looked like I had any makeup on due to the incredible priming effects of the serum.

There was one night when I mistakenly slathered on too much of the serum and applied the moisturizer. The next morning I woke up with notably larger pores and my skin felt oily. I was sure that I was on the verge of a breakout. I remedied the situation by washing and exfoliating with Dermalogica Skin Prep Scrub $34.00).

Then, I applied pure Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel ($3.97) as a pre-moisturizing serum. When that dried, I slathered on Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17 ($22.00), a very gentle product that can be used on the most sensitive skin. I did this three-step routine for the next three days.

On the fourth day, I decided to go back to using Oro Gold. This time, however, I would use it correctly. After using the proper minimalist amount of serum and moisturizer (pea-sized for each) for a few days, I had a clear complexion and my pores were back to their normal size. The verdict: gold is good, but only in small doses, so don’t get greedy with it. If you are going to try Oro Gold and hope to look like Holly Go Lightly, definitely… go lightly.

Are these products worth the hefty price tags? At present, it is hard to say. I find that cheaper alternatives, like a natural vitamin E cream from the health food store, paired with pure aloe vera gel often does the trick for me. However, while I now possess this coveted commodity (I love to say it: gold!), I will keep using it. I did notice on the company’s website that some of the Oro Gold products contain green tea extract, which is loaded with antioxidants and is touted as being great for skin.

I try to drink as much green tea as I can in a given day in the hopes that it helps my skin in addition to my overall well-being. When I run out of my free samples of Oro Gold, if I haven’t suddenly “struck gold,” I’ll remember that old expression about the price of tea in China – one I can certainly justify for beauty!

    who wouldn’t want to put gold on their face that’s really interesting! I have had a lot of time I have over applied products and burnt my skin countless times, the worst was a face mask that literally turned my skin deep red for weeks I had to go to bed with a mask of pond’s night cream and aloe for a few weeks it was so bad!

  2. I would definitely try this out and hope that it helps my skin! My mom would probably love something like this 😀 Although I have to say I would rather wear gold than slather it on my face…
