Hey Beauties, the holiday season is creeping up on us… and who doesn’t love to celebrate with a bit of glitter and gold? We are obsessed with gold ….(well Denise is seriously addicted) so we couldn’t resist putting this selection of some of our favourite gold products of the moment – and we’re swooning at the beauty of them! Wherever you want to shimmer and shine, we’ve got you covered! There is something for everyone whether you want full on sparkle or just a soft shimmer…it’s here… so get your glow on!
Gold is something that has become very popular in skincare products, and for good reason!
It has fantastic anti-ageing properties and really helps brighten the skin. From face masks, to primers and even in treatments, gold has been used to improve the quality of the skin. Gold can also help slow down the depletion of collagen level in your skin cells and increase the elasticity in the skin. It helps to firm and plump up your skin, along with giving it a radiant glow without making you look shiny or glittery. They feel ultra-luxurious, extravagant and a real treat!

Gold can also be used in body products to give your skin a beautiful glow – it melts into the skin to leave you looking healthy and radiant. This lush Nuxe body wash and lotion both have seriously sexy gold particles in them! The shower gel not only smells divine, but it looks like molten gold too! The body lotion also smells amazing and leaves your skin with a golden shimmer. This Tom Ford Shimmering Body Oil really is stunning… on the skin it manages to shimmer and sparkle making you look like a golden goddess. You will be obsessed!
Using gold in face products is a match made in heaven – it’ll give you a beautiful glow and we love using them to highlight the face. Whether you go in with a light hand and give yourself a ‘lit from within’ glow or if you really want your glow to blind the world – adding a touch of gold to your look will always be a winner. From lip products to eye liners and everything in between, the choice is endless and it gets you one step closer to looking like a goddess. Use gold to highlight your features!
