When you say gold, you usually equate it to one of the most precious things here on earth – heck, the price of gold in the market is rising as high as ever, just recently ( gold was a really good investment as its price is really high now! ) Gold usually translates to wealth and abundance. How does it translate into skin care, if I may ask?
Well, upon researching about gold and skin care, I’ve learned that gold was used for cancer treatments, and aesthetically, was a good anti-aging ingredient. Gold actually makes key ingredients get absorbed into the skin easily, and reduces oxidation on our skin, almost like an “anti-oxidant”. There are even “24 Karat Gold Facial Treatments” offered by dermatologists for anti-aging! Err that sounds expensive!
I never thought of gold to be such a beneficial ingredient to the skin, and anti-aging is more of a promise that we see results when we “get there,” so it’s definitely worth a shot, as long as it does not have hazardous effects on the skin. Haha!
With Pond’s Age Miracle being the leading anti-aging skin care now, Pond’s has recreated something more advanced and more promising – incorporating the gold ingredient in their products, thus, Pond’s Gold Radiance. All the products in the Pond’s Gold Radiance line have the magic of Pond’s Age Miracle in it ( with the CLA complex, AHAs, retinol and retinol boosters, etc ) , with the added gold ingredient for better absorption, and for more radiance!
Pond’s Gold Radiance is the first Pond’s product which has real gold micro particles. These gold micro particles is blended with Pond’s patented anti-aging ingredients which in harmony fights dullness and recaptures youthful radiance and gives instant glow to the skin.
The gold micro particles used in Pond’s Gold Radiance is 99% real gold which has known good effects on skin. Gold as a natural mineral is known to give instant radiance to the skin while enhancing skin’s renewal process (replacing dead skin cells with new healthier ones) and skin elasticity (ability of the skin to go back to normal state once stretched).
As the Pond’s Institute feels that dullness on the skin is caused by rough skin texture, uneveness of skin tone , darker skin complexion , and skin dehydration – those are the things that we get as we continuously get exposed to the sun, get breakouts and have ‘souvenirs’ every now and then, have some sleepless nights, and more routines that we do everyday that wears our skin down. As a result, our skin looks dull and lifeless. The Pond’s Gold Radiance range aims to target all of those problems and give us younger, tight, and radiance skin, fighting signs of aging, and making us retain our youthful beauty.

To be honest, it was quite surreal as I just watched Korina Sanchez’s Rated K around a week ago before I was introduced to the new line of Pond’s, with gold being used by the dermatologists, infusing it into the skin to make skin glow. I have pumped some product out and have my initial opinions about it – it has gold specks, that for sure, will reflect light and make skin less dull, that’s for sure, so it acts in two ways- the superficial gold specks there are light reflectors that cancel out any trace of unevenness on the skin texture-wise or tone-wise, while the anti-aging angle is still a promise given to us by Pond’s as it is needed to roadtest this for a while. But as Age Miracle has been used by my sisters for quite a while, and seeing their skins in good condition, I think that this will just be great.
Testing them initially – I’ve felt the texture of the moisturizer – for you girls who are afraid of greasy moisturizers, the Day Cream is definitely lighter than Age Miracle’s, while the serum is really promising, specially those who have oily skin- this will definitely not grease you up, infusing you with anti-aging/anti-oxidant-y ingredients just like a clear gel! The eye cream’s pretty light in texture, and I’m just so excited to use all of these everyday and give you a report on how these fared on my skin.
Well, how about that? Everybody stay tuned and I’d update you about it! But really, I am so impressed with this!
