ORO GOLD Cosmetics: Cruelty-Free Luxury

ORO GOLD Cosmetics is a cruelty-free brand that I was recently introduced to.  Gold has long been used as a luxurious addition to beauty products, from the ancient Romans and Chinese medicine to the products that ORO GOLD Cosmetics creates today.

Gold is often thought of as a privilege only for the wealthy, but ORO GOLD makes it an affordable luxury for all.  They use colloidal gold, or “nano-gold,” which is made up of sub-micrometer-sized particles of gold, in fluid form.  The specks are both visible and invisible to the naked eye.  Colloidal gold has been referred to as the “Elixir of Life” in literature dating back centuries.

The tiny particles of gold in ORO GOLD Cosmetics creams is easily absorbed through the pores and works to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, as well as sun damage and age spots.  Their products are great for achieving and maintaining moisturized, radiant skin and will leave you feeling pampered and refreshed.

The product that most caught my eye was the 24K Oil-Control Prevention Mask, which retails for $248.  For that price you will receive a 60 mL jar.  The mask is designed to cleanse and smooth blemished skin, which is one of my major skin concerns.  I have oily/combination skin with red patches, and I’d love to see how this works and feels.  Some of the ingredients it contains are 24 karat gold, aloe, Pro-Vitamin B5 (Panthenol), along with a combination of rich moisturizers.  Application is the same as you would expect for a mask: apply a thick layer onto clean skin and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water.   You can also apply this mask to affected areas as a spot treatment and leave on for as long as you please, then rinse with warm water.  This product also goes well with the 24K Oil-Control Mositurizer.

I was especially pleased to learn that ORO GOLD Cosmetics is a cruelty-free brand, because ending animal testing is a cause that I am passionate about.  Their policy is as follows:

“ORO GOLD Cosmetics does not test on animals. The company believes in providing high-quality products as well as high-quality service. You can be ensured that all ORO GOLD Cosmetics products are formulated with ingredients that are universally used by the cosmetic industry. All of our products are thoroughly tested for safety and must pass very stringent requirements.”

The price of the 24K Oil-Control Prevention Mask may seem steep in comparison to other skin care masks out there, but one must consider the ingredients that it contains.  I have not sampled any ORO GOLD Cosmetics products for myself, but from what I’ve learned thus far I think they sound like fabulous quality skin care that promises to deliver great results.  They have a broad range of products for all types of skin concerns, including neck care, serums, body butters, and much more.  They even have a line specifically for men.

If you’re interested in ORO GOLD Cosmetics, I definitely recommend taking a look at their website and browsing their full line of products.  They also have brick-and-mortar stores where you can indulge in a 24K Gold Facial!  They have a presence in Hong Kong, the Phillippines, Spain, England, Israel, Russia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates, too!

  1. This product sounds really good but it doesn't seem like a practical buy for most people. If I really wanted to treat myself I might purchase it as a luxury item.

    1. It's definitely on the more expensive side, but I think it would be a fun treat if you were in the market for luxury skincare!
