Orogold Box: November 2015

I’m always enjoy trying out new brands so when the wonderful folks at Orogold sent me a box to review I was super excited.

According to Orogold, each of their products is infused with 24K gold and base they have Denise Richards and Brian Austin Green as our celebrity brand ambassadors. (My inner 80s fangirl squees).

Now about the sub itself:

“Orogold Box is a subscription service that offers skin care and beauty addicts a taste of the good life with a diverse range of luxury skin care products delivered right to your doorstep, once every three months. Try out the very best of what OROGOLD has to offer with a rotating selection of 3 different products featured in every box. ”

You have to pay for this annually and it’s $192 for the year, but you’ll receive 4 boxes, quarterly.

To start, adorable packaging (they always get me with the packaging). This is perfect for gift giving.

Opening up the box reveals our three, magic gold skincare products:
Open Box 1 Open Box 2

Moisturizer
24K Deep Day Moisturizer Cream

(1 oz: $118.00)
Description: The delicate 24K Deep Day Moisturizer Cream is designed to give your skin a fresh and revitalized feeling. It is infused with rich ingredients such as gold and Helianthus Annuus seed oil (Sunflower Oil) to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines. This unique day cream will leave your complexion with radiant and vibrant look.”
Verdict: Like
The very first thing I noticed about this cream was that it had a sweet scent. It’s not floral but it almost reminds me of apples. I’m particularly sensitive to scents and it didn’t bother me, but it is noticeable. I found this cream absorbed quickly and didn’t leave a greasy feeling. I have combination skin and at times I felt this moisturizer was a bit too heavy for me. I think it would work well with dry and normal skin and will probably be a much better fit for me as we move into the cooler weather.

CleanserCleanser 2
24K Gold Milk Cleanser

(2-Step Cleansing Kit with Toner: $128.00)
Description: The luxurious 24K Gold Milk Cleanser is specially designed for delicate and sensitive skin. It is formulated to help remove impurities without irritation, yet providing a gentle cleanse. This cleanser is enriched with Vitamin C & E for antioxidants, and jojoba and musk oils to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.”
Verdict: Nice for someone else
I had trouble finding this product alone on the site so I linked to the set which includes a toner. I’m addicted to my oil cleansers so these foaming style just aren’t my bag. That being said this one had a nice texture and wasn’t drying. The packaging is quite luxe and would look great on your bathroom counter. If you enjoy foam style cleansers, you might really like this product.

Sea Salt Souffle Scrub
Salt Souffle

(Retail:???)
Verdict: Love!
I couldn’t find this product on the Orogold site, but it’s my favorite of the three. It’s a very fine face scrub that is quite gentle. I’d recommend this for folks with more delicate/sensitive skin that find most scrubs too harsh. It also has a very pretty shimmer to it that gives it an upscale vibe. I found that I could use this scrub a lot more frequently than many others I own.

OVERALL
Orogold
Verdict:
Hit!
The cost of this box comes out to $48 which I think is a great value when compared to similar products. I found everything to be high quality, although I’m not sure if I notice a difference with the use of 24K gold as an ingredient.  I feel like this collection has an older, sophisticated vibe that would suit a more mature woman. The products seem like a great match for the needs of older skin and are nicely packaged for gifting, so this is definitely something to keep in mind come Mother’s Day.

Have you tried any skincare products with unusual ingredients? If so, what were they and what did you think?

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island, in the dungeon of an old building, making up stories while she sorts through endless stacks of papers, just dreaming of working somewhere with windows. She is currently working on several novels and hopes to write her way to that aforementioned windowed place. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.
