- That Gold Serum: Update & Review...
So who remembers when my mind was blown by a skincare product containing 24K gold?! At the start of the year I introduced you to Medicox Nano 24K Gold Sublime Serum* here, which was very kindly sent to me by BonjourHK. I won't go into details such as its ingredients and claims, as you can read all about those in my previous post. The main purpose of this post is to share with you my experience of when it came to using it. You may remember, this skincare product isn't cheap (*gulp*, £78), so I promised to test it out properly and conclude whether it's worth the hefty price tag or not. Despite acquiring quite the serum stash, I stuck to my word and managed to use this twice a day for an entire month. For someone who loves to experiment with different skincare this was pretty tough, but it immediately gives away just how much I enjoy using this product. Something I think is important when splurging on a product is how long it will last. Two pumps are all I need to coat my entire face and neck, and you can see how much it's gone down. I'd say this will last another month, perhaps two at a push. The consistency is less thick than other serums I own, something I prefer as I find it absorbs a lot better and evenly. There's a slight fragrance to this that's light and refreshing. I'm not someone who's easily put off by scents, but I think if you are then you won't have a problem with this. Now when I saw the gold chunks shining back at me in the bottle, I feared I'd look like a disco ball with this. Fear not, as they really are teeny tiny speckles. Some people find swatches on arms/hands off-putting but I much prefer to see what a product actually looks like, and I want to show you just how small the gold particles in this are - they're even less noticeable when on the face. So, what's my verdict? I can honestly say my skin hasn't looked so fresh and awake in years. I have dry/sensitive skin and tend to get blemishes on my chin a few times a month. During this test month, I had one spot. ONE. Usually I get the mountains that feel like a bruise which then erupt and basically remain enemies with concealer and last a week, however, the one spot I had only lasted two days. Not only does my skin look clearer but the surface is a lot softer and smoother, making it an ideal base for makeup. Whenever I see expensive skincare I'm usually skeptical and just think there's a just as good drugstore version, but this has definitely persuaded me to invest more. I honestly can't think of one bad thing about this. From packaging to performance, it's faultless! Are you a saver or a splurger? Have you ever tried skincare products containing gold? *Products marked with an asterix (*) have been gifted. I only feature products/services to my personal taste and all opinions are 100% my own.
