GOLD IS USED IN SKINCARE?!?
Yes- it IS surprisingly! In fact, gold has been pointed to as the main path to keeping one's youth in China! Looking back far into history, you can also find that other rulers and royalty used gold in order to maintain their youth as well. In some studies, gold has been shown to stimulate cellular growth, bring back skin's elasticity, and tighten skin too! Gold can repair sun damage and improve the appearance dark spots on skin, in addition to reducing skin inflammation. Lastly, its a great antioxidant that can help skin combat free radicals such as pollution!

This is definitely a serum that will bring a LOT of fun and a little bit of sparkle to your beauty routine! I've never really tried a product like this serum that had 24K gold- or even gold for that matter! It's something that has become more popular recently as an excellent aid in beauty products for skin improvement. This serum from Isa Professional is aimed at doing just that! I was a little nervous that I might have an allergic reaction to the product . I have VERY sensitive skin and I have read and also done some research that some people have a negative reaction to their skin when using gold, but I did NOT have this reaction at all!
The serum came in a very nice bottle and I really liked how well it displayed the product and how easily it was dispensed through the pump! The only negative thing about the packaging was that I could not get the clear cap that topped the bottle easily! Now this was only on the first time- after I got it off initially it was easy to remove. However, the first time I admit was a little difficult.
As for the formula, it was a nice and light texture that spread easily for a nice thin layer that I applied to my face and neck area. I really liked that extra sparkle that the serum left behind too! It dried very quickly so I could apply my makeup almost immediately after with a max drying time of under 2 minutes :) The serum left my skin feeling wonderfully soft and my skin was instantly tightened! I have never really used a product that did tightened my skin and reduced pore size so well.
Lastly, it should be noted that this 24K gold serum from Isa Professionals is scented too! It's a nice scent,but it may be stronger than some products I've tried in the past. If you can't handle perfumed products or have bad reactions to skin due to a fragrance, I would NOT recommend this product! That would really be the only reason that I could think of that you might want to avoid this item! Otherwise, I would definitely recommend giving the one from Isa Professionals a try! There's a good amount too, so you should have to bottle for a great while which may help justify the higher price point. Although this product IS about $60, the pricing is very much in line with comparable products on the market and it's packed full of high-quality ingredients :)
