Skincare Benefits of Gold: Skinature 24K Goldzan Ampoule Mask - M Review 96
Gold is a universal symbol for wealth and luxury. You can now find beauty products with gold in it and you often wonder what gold is actually good for and whether it’s safe for the skin. Some people may think it’s simply a gimmick to sell an expensive, luxury product. However, I’m here to explain that gold surprisingly does have skincare benefits that can transform your skin when well-formulated.
You will often see this ingredient labeled as colloidal gold which is derived from a suspension of nanoparticles of pure gold in water. This extraction method is what makes it compatible with our skin and for manufacturers to effectively allocate their gold resources.
Collodial gold has amazing benefits for the skin - holding anti-inflammatory and anti-aging benefits. Gold has been used as an anti-inflammatory agent for arthritis. With this in mind, it works as an antioxidant to directly activate the skin’s natural anti-inflammatory response, thus calming inflammation within the skin. In a similar way, it can also actively combat acne with its anti-bacterial properties.
There are also elements of gold that stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, which helps visibly reduce the signs of fine lines and wrinkles.

Gold Mask Review:
The Skinature 24K Goldzan Ampoule Mask is one of our favorite gold products. The packaging has an image of the ampoule/serum bottle that you can also find on Masksheets. The mask itself is gorgeous with a luxurious gold imprint on the silk sheet. After removing the plastic side, I find that the fit is perfect for my face and adheres nicely.
Containing colloadial gold, the mask is a premium anti-aging and revitalizing mask that will give your skin youthful-looking and brighter skin. The mask also contains 12 kinds of peptides and 5-type hyaluronic acid complex. Peptides are one of those ignredients that work harmoniously with gold by boosting the anti-aging effects - it improves elasticity and plumpness for firmer, smoother skin. Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating ingredient that draws moisture into the skin which can also further plump the skin. I loved how soft and plump my skin felt after use. Only thing is I wish the quantity of the essence could be more. OVerall a good luxury mask with amazing anti-aging benefits.
