24k gold for your face?

Products with unique or interesting ingredients in have always interested me. For example Nip and Fab have a range with dragons blood in it I'm pretty sure which I've always wanted to try, I'll get round to it some day! So when I had the chance to try a product enriched with actual gold, I obviously wasn't going to say no.

The Bio Essence 24k gold collection is a range of products which as the name suggests, are all infused with gold. They've got products such as a moisturisers and cleansers and were kind enough to send me out their miracle finisher*. The aim of the miracle finisher is basically to create an invisible layer of protection on your skin, stopping any impurities from getting in your pores and harmful makeup ingredients having direct contact on the skin.

I've been using the miracle finisher every day since I got it morning and night as the last step in my skincare routine. So after you've slathered on your moisturiser, pump out a bit of this, rub it in and then your face is all set. I've also found it works as an amazing primer too. So instead of then applying my normal makeup primer after, I just use this alone and it does the job perfectly.
It makes my skin feel super soft and actually has a really nice scent to it. I've definitely had a reduction in the amount of blemishes I've been getting recently too which could be down to this product stopping the harmful ingredients reacting with my skin.

I can't find anything to fault the actual product with, however one thing I'm not so keen on is the packaging. I just think that for something containing gold it could look a bit fancier and it's definitely not the cheapest product on the market either at £30. That is just personal opinion though and based on the product alone, I would absolutely pay £30 again for this. I mean it is gold after all!

I will 100% be looking in to the other products in this range now because the more gold I can get on my face the better! If you're looking for an all in one sort of product, I feel like this moisturises and primers your skin as well as protecting it, then definitely give this a go!
