Mid-week Mystery: Gold Digger?


When I got married, as per tradition, my husband had to buy me 16 gold ornaments. He did . . . and then some. I got earrings, 6 solid gold bangles, a mangal sutra (traditional necklace worn by some married Hindu women), a nose ring and my wedding rings. However, I only wear my wedding rings and mangal sutra because

I think too much gold is gaudy. It doesn’t look classy, but that’s just me. Where am i going with this? So, I have been seeing, especially on social media, all these beauty treatments, 24-karat gold sheet masks, face washes, moisturizers claiming to have gold in them. I am very skeptical. I did a bit of digging and found this little tit bit from the Internet:

Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, an N.Y.C.-based cosmetic dermatologist says:” Gold is used as an anti-aging ingredient, as it can help reduce inflammation, which is a cause of acne and hyper pigmentation. When applied topically, it also helps brighten the skin.” The link to his sight is here


I also picked up these products that promises ‘gold radiance’. These are made in Pakistan. I had a look at the ingredients and there weren’t any harsh chemicals or illegal ingredients. I got my husband to try it out for two days. His first reaction was that the face wash made his skin feel clean but dry. The cream was thick but not hydrating. I didn’t see any radiance but he used it twice. I don’t know if I can coerce him into trying it out for longer . . . this may prove difficult because his skincare regime is the envy of many women, (true story  . . .) lol

But this post is not a review of these products  as much as it is something to think about . . .

Mmmmmm . . . I really want to know what you beauties think of this.

Do you think it’s a farce? Has anyone tried these ‘gold’ treatments? If you have, do you recommend something? Let me know, down below

Until next time,

Stay blessed and beautiful

Love you more than gold
