6666666I first tried the glorious Skin Metamorphosis 24K Gold Skin Elixir by Alexa Sky Botanicals last year, and since then, it has become a skincare staple I couldn’t live without.
When Skin Metamorphosis was launched last year, it was unlike any product i’d ever used and still remains a unique product within my skincare routine. The beautiful list of skin loving ingredients, including blueberry oil, marine algae extract, papaya oil, rosehip and electric daisy extract not only provides the skin with all the essential fatty acids, antioxidants and skin repairing benefits it needs to look and feel at its best, but also fights premature aging and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The nourishing, vegan friendly oil is incredibly concentrated yet is surprisingly lightweight when on the skin. The small flasks of 24k gold within the oil itself not only looks impressive, but also has a more beneficial effect upon the skin. Gold has been proven to slow down the depletion of collegen and stimulate new skin cells to make skin appear more toned, refreshed and more importantly, looking firmer and instantly brighter.
Having only tested Skin Metamorphosis 24K Gold Skin Elixir for 2 weeks in my first impressions review, I wanted to update you with the long term effects i’ve experienced since utilising this multi-purpose skin elixir within my routine.
As a multi-use product, the ways in which Skin Metamorphosis can be utilised are endless, as the oil can not only be used in place of a face oil, but is also extremely effective when used as a primer, highlighter and facial treatment in both your AM and PM routine. As a face oil, it sits beautifully on the skin, absorbing well yet leaving behind a non-greasy, dewy complexion that never ceases to amaze me. The way in which the oil absorbs is incredible, yet the skin remains moisturised and glowing all day long. It also works well in conjunction with a face moisturiser and SPF, as it sits well under sunscreen and works wonders when mixed together with your favourite face cream to supercharge the moisturiser’s effects. Even though it makes skin look and feel at its best when used alone, it is under make-up where Skin Metamorphosis comes into its own, providing a smooth, bright base which gives make-up a dewy glow without the shine. I love to place a touch of the oil on the high points of my face when keeping my make-up minimal, as it gives my skin a healthy glow and sheen which makes my make-up look fresh and effortless. In both my AM and PM skincare routines, Skin Metamorphosis integrates effortlessly alongside my other beauty essentials, whether it be as an oil-based serum, used with balms and creams or merely used alone – it keeps my skin nourished, moisturised and feeling incredibly smooth and soft. I also find it works well in powdered face masks, as it gives skin an additional boost of moisture, and transfers the skin repairing and brightening effects within the mask itself. On occasion, i’ve even added a few small drops to my body moisturiser to enhance its performance and it has certainly made my skin look much healthier in its appearance.
The good news is that i’ve discovered that a little oil goes a long way, as the nourishing oil spreads across the skin with ease and thanks to it’s concentrated forumla, means that you only need minimal product for maximum results.
What I love most about the oil is the scent, as the lemongrass and sweet orange fragrance is refreshing, uplifting and a true treat for the senses. However, since my first review last year, Alexa Sky Botanicals have created Essential Oil free versions of each of their products so you can purchase fragrance free skincare, while still reaping the benefits of the product itself. This means that even if you have a sensitive skin, or are not a fan of the heady lemongrass scent, there’s still an option for you.
To say i’m impressed by Skin Metamorphosis 24K Gold Skin Elixir is an understatement as in the 8 months since its launch, I have purchased several bottles as it is so versatile in it’s approach to great skin. What is more impressive is that it suits my skin as well as my Mum, my Aunt and family friends; a broad range of ages that is a true achievement as there are not many brands whom create products formulated with all skin types and ages in mind.
