A nice facial serum is a great way to pamper your skin. It is a simple luxury that helps us look and feel our best.
I prefer my serums over most lotions, though I do still use a broad spectrum sunscreen lotion during the day (after applying my serums!).
As a blogger, I have had the opportunity to try several brands of serum. I find that my skin benefits most from certain types of ingredients including Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Hyaluronic Acid. As it turns out, XANADU 24K Gold Serum has those ingredients and more! In this case, the “more” is 24K Gold!
The 24K gold adds a sparkle, kind of like a body glitter but more subtle. You can rub it in more so the sparkle is not as obvious. I was curious about the benefits of using gold in a facial product (other than the sparkle). I recently has a surgical wound and the wound-care specialist had me use a silver as part of my treatments. Apparently silver is believed to have antibacterial and possibly anti-inflamatory benefits that help the skin heal. I was curious whether gold is believed to have similar benefits, so I did a little research. It appears that gold may have similar properties. However, even if it does not
This XANADU 24K Gold Serum has a light scent. It is a very lovely scent, though I generally prefer unscented products for the face (my reasoning is that perfumes are a common trigger for skin sensitivities and I prefer to be as gentle as possible with my facial skin). However, I have not experienced any irritation or breakouts from this serum, so that may be more a matter of my general preference.
Xanadue 24K Gold Serum also makes my skin feel smooth and makes a nice primer for tinted moisturizer, foundation and BB Cream.
The following selfie that I posted on Instagram was taken a few days ago after using this serum for a little over a week. I have the serum on my face, but it is blended into layers of makeup and sunscreen so it only adds a subtle sheen. I am wearing a lot of makeup as the selfie was taken on my way to a dance performance in natural sunlight. Usually this makeup would enhance fine lines in closeup photos so I do credit the serum (and possibly the sunscreen facial primer lotion I am testing) for the smoother appearance.
Overall, I am impressed with XANADU 24K Gold Serum. I think this serum is especially good for people who like a little shine and sparkle on their skin.
