We, women, always love being pampered and treated like Queens. And like Queens, we deserve nothing more than the best. In ancient times, Egyptian royalty make use of gold for facial treatments and procedures to slow down the ageing process.
When I read about gold being used for beauty treatments I was quick to judge that only the rich and famous would be able to afford such luxurious treats. But then I was wrong, there are already some brands out in the market that come up with affordable products that makes use of gold. That’s good news, right? One of these products is from Divine Beauty. As soon as I saw that they had the 24K Gold Mask and Soap, I said to myself that I surely must give it a try. And try I did.
24K GOLD MASK
"Gold is known to be one of the softest metals, which is readily absorbed by the skin. Throughout history, gold has been recognized for its luxurious and beautifying properties. It has also been known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Historians say Cleopatra maintained her youth and beauty by wearing a mask of pure gold to bed every night. "
The 24K Gold Mask promises to deliver immediate effects such as skin tightening and anti-ageing. This product is best used 2 times a week. What I got from the store is a 50g pack of 24K Gold Mask which is quite a lot and will suffice for a month. It sells for PHP150 a piece. What I love about this is that a little goes a long way for this product. All you have to do is mix one tbsp. of powder with one tbsp. of water and that’ll be enough to cover your entire face. What you get is a really creamy mixture but you have to act fast because it might dry up immediately. It has a very mild scent too which is so-so.
Upon usage of the product for more than two weeks now, I can say that indeed there is immediate effect when it comes to skin tightening. I felt my skin tighten as soon as I wash off the mask with warm water. As for the long term effects though, I might have to use this for a longer period of time. The great thing though is that I didn't breakout from using this so thumbs up!
Another product that promises to lighten the skin and fight ageing is their 24k Gold Soap. It's also dubbed as the most luxurious skin-enhancing soap! Since I have the mask, it would be also nice to get the soap for maximum effects right? The soap bar weighs 150g and sells for PHP200 each. It has a light brown color and smells quite weird. I say this because I couldn’t find the exact adjective to describe the scent. It has a mild scent but sometimes it tends to smell like spoilt milk. I do hope they improve the scent of the soap because it’s one thing that makes me buy them.
This soap really works up a rich lather and glides on to the skin smoothly. It doesn't melt easily too. One bar can be used for more than two weeks (based on the fact that I use it two times a day for face and body). After bathing, your skin might feel a little dry. However, I love that I didn't get any breakouts from using the soap. In fact, I think my skin has maintained its skin tone but then I’m also using another product with this so I can’t really day for sure. Overall, I would love to repurchase this product.
