Goldilocks: Give your visage a golden radiance

The onset of cooler, harsher weather has fortuitously coincided with an arsenal of newly-launched skincare products that promise to not only protect our delicate skin from winter woes, but to turn our natural glow up a notch or two.


Notable among these face-focused fares is Parisian beauty label Darphin’s 8-Flower Golden Nectar Essential Oil Elixir, which apparently combines eight potent flowers – including soothing lavender and purifying ylang ylang – with 24K gold, endowing the skin with a radiant sheen. Also using gold, this time in the massager, is Korean skincare maison Sulwhasoo’s Timetreasure Invigorating Eye Serum, with its golden eye-care massager said to help flush out extra fluids from under the eye region, thereby aiding in depuffing.

Meanwhile, premium Japanese beauty brand Albion has added a new product – Albion Excia Embeage Diofons serum – that looks to utilise the goodness of not one, but 12 mineral elements (including gold leaves) to confer a natural shine on your face, while reviving the dermis from within. Taking a similar approach is French luxury brand Guerlain, with its new Orchidée Impériale Black Eye And Lip Contour Cream featuring microbeads of silver, ivory and pink pearls set with ultra-fine 24K gold particles, all of which apparently combine to diffuse a subtly reflective light, proffering a bright glow to our complexion.

Finally, celebrated skincare specialist Tata Harper has just launched the Elixir Vitae serum and Elixir Vitae Eye Serum, two products that purportedly harness the goodness of all-natural ingredients to bestow a luscious blush that can withstand the harshest winter winds.
