The Golden Details About LaRocca Skincare: Throughout history, all natural 24K gold has been regarded as an ancient remedy. Its presence in the body is believed to enliven, revive and cure a multitude of diseases as well as restore youth and perfect health.
Founder Laura DeLuisa LaRocca was introduced to the wonder of gold when she suffered total kidney failure and believed this mineral played a role in her recovery. "I wanted to make the benefits of gold widely accessible in the form of technology-driven, results oriented skincare without compromising the environment," says LaRocca about the birth of LaRocca Skincare. This line consists of four biodegradable formulas, all in 100% recyclable packaging and made it's debut in Fall 2008.
Review: I received the entire line to review, which includes the: C-Gold ($150), 24K Gold Cleanser Exfoliant ($75), 24K Gold Eye Cream ($150) and 24K Gold Face Moisture ($125).
24K Gold Cleanser Exfoliant - This cleanser is gentle exfoliation at it's best. It contains natural fossilized hard shell algae that will remove old dead skin cells, unclog pores, and reduce acne breakouts. It has a hint of citrus scent, which I love! My face feels so smooth and super clean after using this cleanser. It also adds vitality and freshness to my skin. This cleanser is gentle enough to use day and night.
Ingredients: Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-6, Orange Peel Oil, Fulvic Acid, Aloe, Chamomile Extract and Green Tea Extract
24K Gold Eye Cream - While I don't have any issues with puffiness, I do get the appearance of dark circles once in awhile. I've noticed that this eye cream has helped out a lot with that little problem. I've also noticed that my eye area is really smooth since I started using this. However, there is one minor issue with me - it burns. The burning sensation goes away within a few minutes though. I let my mom try it herself to see if she would experience the same thing, but she didn't have the same reaction. Otherwise, this eye cream is fantastic and does exactly what it is aimed to do!
Ingredients: Squalene, Witch Hazel, Chamomile Extract, Green Tea Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Vitamins C & E, Dipeptide02, Indian Gooseberry Fruit Extract, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-6 and Fulvic Acid
24K Gold Face Moisture - This moisturizer is utterly weightless and absorbs quickly. Even though I don't have any wrinkles or fine lines, this moisturizer does a fantastic job of hydrating the skin without making it overdone or greasy. My face feels luxuriously soft. Even though I'm prone to getting breakouts from moisturizers once in awhile, I haven't experienced any when using this moisturizer.
Ingredients: Hexapeptide-6, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-6, Squalene, Apricot Kernel Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Jojoba Seed Oil and Fulvic Acid
C-Gold - I quickly follow up with this product after using the 24K Gold Face Moisture. Like the moisturizer, it makes my face feel very soft. It also gives my face a shimmering hint of gold. The bottle is a bit small, but a little truly does go a long way with this product! You can use the C-Gold as a primer for smooth application with makeup or simply use it by itself.
Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane and 15% Vitamin C
