What’s as good as gold? Nothing. It’s gold. Gold will always give an appearance of beauty even to ugliness and when I first was approached by Orogold to review and try the products I was pretty interested to see how this differed from the usual suspects in luxury skincare you find on the ground floor of virtually every department store you’ll ever walk into. After all, the beauty industry turns over the highest revenue in the luxury sector and is every consumer’s first avenue for a taste of extravagance.


A true nerd at heart, I went ahead and did my research on the brand and whilst I have read some appalling blog posts on their aggressive sales techniques from their retail stores, I should preface this blog post that I have not experienced this myself and will only be writing about the merit of the products themselves. Do I agree with Chinese burn twist your arm till you buy or guilt trip you if you don’t sales techniques, heck no. This is purely a review on the product itself and the results I’ve seen from trialing it for just a fortnight.



Whilst the idea of lavishing your largest organ in gold flecks sounds alluring, the products also come with a pretty price tag. You may need to consider investing in a long-term strategy in gold to afford the range. I’m also a firm believer of the age-old saying that you get what you pay for and the price is what you pay and value is what you get. There are products from the range that don’t make your credit cards quiver and your partner’s eyes bulge from their sockets when you reveal how much you spent on an eye cream.


I’ve chosen three serums and a moisturizer to review, as I tend to combine multiple skincare brands to achieve the results I want. The 24K Intensive Eye Serum, 24K Caviar Elastin Restoration, 24K DMAE Lifting & Firming Cream and 24K Vitamin C Booster Serum were sent for me to test. I tried a combination of the products over the period of two weeks where I found that not only did my skin brighten in complexion with each usage but also I didn’t break out either. A little really does go a long way with the products here so don’t be overzealous when you pump out that serum because you’ll run out of precious real estate to apply it. The serums all apply with a consistency that almost makes your skin feel eerily smooth. The cream didn’t leave your skin feeling sticky or moist like some other creams I’ve tried.



I was also extended an invite to visit the Sydney boutique to receive a facial from one of the directors (thank you John). I don’t think I’ve ever felt comfortable walking into any meetings with no foundation or bronzer on and left the salon feeling like I could actually rock the no make up, make up look. In fact, I felt confident enough to actually just wear eyeliner the next day for my meetings so kudos to the team for getting me to that stage! I mean… if it’s good enough for Denise Richards then it’s good enough for me (because we’re totally at the same pay grade).



Has anyone heard the saying that gold is everyman’s way to save? Well… does absorbing it into the skin count? Jokes! Tell me about your Orogold experience guys – I want to hear it!

  • Great photos, Helen! You are gorgeous <3

    Loved reading your review on Orogold. I also agree that there's nothing better than gold, especially when it comes to skincare. I do wish that by absorbing all this gold into my skin, I could become richer though. HAHA! I'm also currently using some of their products and have noticed great results on my skin even in such a short amount of time 🙂

    Hope you had a great weekend babe! Looking forward to seeing more of your posts!

    xoxo, sharon

  • Cool. I’d heard of them. They have a pretty aggressive marketing strategy and some pretty big celebrities use these products. They look like they’d be great to use.


  • I’ve never heard of this brand, and I really like that you made the point to explain that you’re reviewing the product and NOT the sales strategies. It sounds like some great skincare – I’ll have to keep a look out!

  • I’ve never heard of this brand either, but I like how honest you were with your impression of them! My skin is quite low maintenance at the moment, but I would love to try this as a treat to myself sometime.
