I remember when I was a teenager, I used to accompany my older sisters or my cousins to the salon and those ladies would suggest Pearl or Golden facial. Mainly if she is a “bride to be” , then it’s compulsory to get the Golden facial done so that bride will look more radiant and brighter on Big day. Now, I really do not know if it is true. However, for the past many centuries using Gold (Extract/foil) in skincare has been a regular practice, even “Cleopatra” was a fan of it. So one day I thought let’s try some Gold mask and see if it really makes any difference in skin texture.
There are tons of different varieties of masks available in the market. I like to use clay masks and have been using it for many years but I stay away from single pouch/sachet masks. I am actually a little bit skeptical about it so never tried any masks except maybe 1 or 2 in my life, though I would like to try some in the future.
Anyway, for the first time, I had ordered something by keeping my preferences aside and was very curious to know if it indeed works.
I am not an expert but so far what know about Gold, is best known for its anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties So, I have been using this for over a year now. I use it after cleansing or exfoliating my face. It comes with a very small spatula to scoop up the product out of the jar without any mess. I apply a thin layer and keep it for 20 min. Then I gently massage the face while rinsing it with warm water. This mask gives me an instant glow. It makes my skin very soft like satin silk. Apparently, the skin is well hydrated and moisturized. Its silky formula looks so luxurious and promising, that it will convince you to add it to your not daily but weekly skincare routine. For me, I feel like getting a spa treatment at home.
Suitable for all skin types. For reference, my skin type is Normal/combination with oily T-zone and not very sensitive. Acne-prone skin, not so sure if it will work for you as I think it has a tendency of leaving some sort of oily/rich moisturizing effect on the skin. It might make your skin more oily which is the last thing you would expect from Gold mask or can cause a breakout. Again, it depends on how you want to incorporate this mask into your beauty regimen. Quantity wise, it is good and will last longer than you imagine..so it is a win-win situation for you and your pocket as well.
You can see the constancy of the formula below in the picture.
I ordered this mask from Amazon last year and don’t remember the price but I guess it was below $20(USD).
Ingredients : Purified water, Butyl glycol, Silk Amino Acids, Ceramides, Codium Tomentosum Extracts, Hydrolyzed Collagen, LEONTOPODIUM ALPINUM Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, , P-glucan, PORTULACA OLERACEA extract, shea butter, Cereus Grandiflorus extract, Arnica Montana flower extract, sodium hyaluronate, polyglutamic acid, tocopherol (Vitamin E), xanthan gum, allantoin, 24K Gold
I like this mask but not a “must try” product as I did not notice any long term or permanent significant change in my skin tone.
P.S. – I have had been using this Mask for quite a long time before my face started to break out. For the last 3-4 months, I have been fighting with hormonal acne problems. After trying OTC treatments, now finally I am using the “Curology” customized treatment plan. Results are awaited !
