When I was first contacted by Orogold to review their products, I was excited to try something new. I’m always up for trying new products, and if I’m able to help someone who’s considering it by posting a review, even better. After all, that’s what blogging is about: helping and inspiring readers.
After browsing the Orogold website, I was floored by the extremely expensive prices. I found this very intriguing. How can this company justify these prices? Their products must be really good, right? Apparently, the products contain flecks of gold, which I’m not convinced do anything but look pretty in the jar. This led to a google search revealing a lot of different opinions, mostly about the brand’s sales tactics at their brick & mortar shops. Most of the actual product reviews were positive, so I figured I’d give it a shot.
I want to preface this review by saying yes, Orogold did sponsor this review, but my allegiance is to my readers and I will always be 100% honest in my reviews. Orogold sent me their Cryogenic Collection (they did not send the Liquefying Pearl & I have not tried the eye cream yet because I don’t really have a need for it). According to their site, “this collection will revitalize your skin by creating a complexion that looks healthy and vibrant.”
The products are all very pretty, especially the mask. It contains mother of pearl, which creates a beautiful luminous sheen. I felt like a queen when putting this stuff on! After the mask, I used the revitalizer (2-3 pumps is all you need), which has little tiny pearls and gold flecks. Very pretty, but once again, not sure if it actually does anything to benefit the skin. Finally, after it dried I put on the restoration cream, which goes on just like regular moisturizer. I was excited to go to sleep so I could see if this stuff really works. My skin is very sensitive and breaks out when I try new products about 90% of the time, so I was prepared to give this stuff a bad review if that happened.
When I woke up in the morning, I ran straight to the mirror. I was shocked; I could see a difference after one use of the mask + revitalizer + cream combo. The products are extremely hydrating and my face felt fuller and more radiant. I continued to use the products for about a week (I used the mask 2 times) and the results were pretty consistent throughout. The nights I used the mask, the results were definitely better. I actually started noticing fewer blemishes as well. The improvement in the texture of my skin was impressive. After a week, I got a shipment of some other beauty products containing an overnight oil. I used this line one night and the results were not comparable to my results from Orogold.
I am happy to report that this stuff does work and it does what it is supposed to do. It made me realize just how dehydrated my skin was. Even though I don’t have major wrinkles yet, this stuff really removes any fine lines and uneven texture that did exist. I won’t buy these products when I run out just based on the price. I’m not ballin’ on that level yet, but if you have the cash, I say go for it!
