Gold-Infused Skincare Products That Won’t Cost A Fortune

24 carat beauty

Gold has been used for millennia to tone and calm skin, so why stop now? We’ve rounded up three gold-spiked skin saviours for every budget. 


Aceology Anti-Ageing Gold Eye Mask, $49 (6 pairs)

This Aussie brand is going gangbusters and we love these peptide-rich new recruits for de-puffing, hydrating and brightening the eye area in a flash. 



AHC Brilliant Gold Toner, $109

It flies off the shelves at home in Korea and is set to do the same now that it’s at Myer. Ideal for dry skin, this gold-charged toner calls on potent seaweed to hydrate and revitalise. 



MZ Skin By Dr. Maryam Zamani Life & Lustre Golden Elixir Antioxidant Serum, $425

Dosed with hyaluronic acid and antioxidants, it not only boosts hydration and texture but protects from pollution and leaves skin with something of a soft-focus filter.

Sisley Les Phyt-Ombres Eyeshadow in Sparkling Topaze, Silky Sand and Silky French Blue, $65

Sheeny metallic eyelids were big on the runways this season, and these new single-hue eyeshadows from Sisley are a great way to get on board. Perfect swept onto lids with a coat of mascara while keeping the rest of the face well pared-back.
