This oil was released as a sequel to the Black Gold Nourishing facial oil. With the addition of 24k gold flakes, the Black Gold Elixir became very popular as an alternative to the farsali oils used alongside makeup to give a dewy look. Originally designed with skin benefits in mind, the Black Gold was designed to be extremely rich and nourishing. Sometimes this meant it was too rich for oily skin types, or normal skin types who were just interested in achieving a dewy makeup look over and above needing it to nourish dry skin.
Thus, the Gold Elixir was formulated as a lighter oil more suited to normal to oily skin types, suitable for daily use and for use under makeup to achieve that all important glow. Due to it’s base of jojoba oil it is very easily absorbed and feel lightweight on the skin.
