“Do not go gentle into that good night,” to me, means do not age with grace, but fight against those fine lines and crows feet. So when I was offered the chance to try out a few OROGOLD Cosmetics products, I jumped at the opportunity.
The 24K Vitamin C Facial Cleanser ($128) is a very soft, lightly foaming cleanser. At the end of the day it washes away all the city grime and dirt without leaving my skin feeling itchy or dry. There is no need to use a makeup remover before this product, as in it washes everything away completely. My super sensitive skin doesn’t react, but is left clean and softly scented.
The 24K Cell Renewal Night Cream ($128) is superb. I could see the difference in my skin within days of using it. There is nothing else like it. After trying it I cannot go back to anything else; I am hooked. My skin looks fresher, plumper and softer every morning. It literally glows. This product has been amazing in battling my chronically dry skin.
The 24K Deep Day Moisturizer Cream ($128) is also amazing. What can be said about the night cream can also be said about the day cream. It soaks into your skin, erasing fine lines, (or as I like to call them: bad decision scars), rejuvenating your skin, restoring softness and smoothness. I find that this is the best traveling cream. After being in airports, planes, trains, automobiles, etc., this product smoothes away that recycled air punishment, and leaves behind soft silky skin.
The 24K Multivitamin Peeling ($178) is phenomenal the very first time you use it. This product pulls up all the dirt and grime that you somehow managed to miss when washing your face that morning. It removes the dead skin cells that dull one’s complexion. Using this product twice a week leaves one’s skin looking fresh and new. The more you use it, the less you need. Since using this product I have found fewer imperfections in my skin. The white heads that liked to appear from time to time are now a thing of the past.
The 24K Caviar Micro-Beads Cream (Approx $400) is another superior product. I was already so hooked on the OROGOLD 24K Cell Renewal Night Cream that when it was suggested I try an additional cream I was hesitant. That was until I was told this is a once-per-week use cream that would enhance the effects of the other products. I found this cream to be the ultimate skin soother and smoother. The weekly treatment attacks the wrinkles that a few too many late nights have left me with. Without question this product leaves my skin feeling sin-free. Like the other OROGOLD products, this one is jam packed with Vitamins C, E, A, etc. It also has the addition of a Caviar extract that is a secret ingredient in making one’s skin look more youthful.
The 24K Caviar & Sea Kelp Mask (Approx $600) is my every other week mask, even though it says you can use it weekly. It gives that added plumpness and soothes and relaxes, like a Valium for my skin. Everything about my skin is calmed and restored. I would show you before and after photos, but then I would have to show you the before and I want everyone to think this healthy glow is due to good nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits.
The 24K Caviar Micro-Beads Serum (Approx $500) is my add-on product. I use it with the 24K Micro-Beads Cream, and the 24K Caviar &Sea Kelp Mask. It is a boost to what the two above products do. It is the “whipped cream and cherry on top” to the Caviar line.
The Termica Energizing Mask (Approx $598) generates heat that opens up your pores, finding its way deep into the layers of your skin. It absorbs dirt, clogging oils and toxins from your skin. I use this mask about once a month, or once a week if I have been working with heavier makeup. It penetrates your skin to remove all of the buildup a daily wash misses. If one works in the entertainment industry where you often end up wearing heavy layers of makeup for long periods of time, this is the product I recommend. Similarly, it is effective even for those who wish to just detoxify their skin. This product has removed and kept away my blackheads and deeper skin imperfections.
The Termica Activation Serum (Approx $398) as an add-on is the alternative to a light face-lift. I kid you not. I tried this not only on my skin, but also on my mother’s, and a few other subjects. I saw an instant result in everyone’s skin, but the most remarkable would have been in my mother’s. My mother is in her 60’s. By using the product once her skin was more youthful and tight especially around the eyes, lips and jaw line. This is a nightly serum for my mom, and once a week for me.
The 24K CryogeniC Restoration Cream (Approx $600) is all about removal of deep lines and maximum hydration. Depending on your skin type, this is a nightly, or every other night cream. I use it, weekly. It attacks not only the fine lines as the above products have, but goes deeper to attack those set-in deep wrinkles. If one has aging skin, this is the line and the product to go for. Unlike most products for deep wrinkles it is soft enough for even the most sensitive skin.
The 24K CryogeniC Diamond Mask (Approx $1,000) is superlative. I might not have diamonds on my fingers, but I do on my face. While my other mask is a heating mask, this is a cooling one. You put this mask on and let it sit until it dries, about ten minutes or so. I use this product once a month, but for more mature skin one could use it weekly. It leaves my skin feeling newer, fresher, and softer. This is without a doubt an age remover. We live in a world where like it or not, youth is worshiped. This product is worth its weight in gold when it comes to removing those last few years that have shown up on one’s face.
The 24k Intensive Eye Formula Cream (Approx $248) is addictive. Good thing: I am an eye cream addict. The best way to see this product work is to try it on one eye and see the difference between the two. I love the de-puffing that happens when using this product. I use this both day and night to keep my eyes looking rested.
The 24K Exclusive Intensive Eye Serum (Approx $248) is what gives the Intensive Eye Formula Cream the nighttime super powers to attack the lines I made while awake. While the 24K Intensive Eye Formula Cream works on its own, this super charges its powers. The difference is night and day…. Get it?
The 24K Golden Body Butter (Approx $58) was love at first smell. Shea butter is one of those magic ingredients that actually does something for the skin. It penetrates the upper layers of the skin leaving you feeling silky and soft. The light fragrance (I use ‘devotion’) is just enough to perfume the skin for day-to-day use. It is not overly strong, just a very light touch. My skin is left feeling hydrated and luxurious.
The 24K Foot Cream (Approx $28) is a jewel. It is rare to find a product that makes one’s feet feel as spoiled as does this rich cream. Every little piggy goes “wee-wee!” when rubbed and pampered with this cream. Applied over clean feet it turns even the roughest sole into angel-soft skin.
The 24K Facial was luxury in the highest form. Whisked off into a private room I was pampered for over an hour with soft spa music tinkling in the background. Not only was I able to be treated to much of the line that I own, but I was also able to try several new ones. My skin has never been cleaner, softer, smoother, or plumper. My facial ended with the 24k Deep Tissue Rejuvenation Mask (Approx $1,398). Cleopatra and Midas can move over, because I have found the gods’ ambrosia, and it was put on my face! It was soothing and cool while it sunk into my skin. I felt and looked absolutely radiant after my treatment.
The biggest compliment I can give this line is that after using the above products, I find myself wearing less and less makeup. Foundation has become a “work only” thing. After one week of using the products, I was even bold enough to appear on film, makeup free. I can’t wait to do it again after using the products for a few months. I encourage everyone to go and give the products a try.
