Gold is more than a decorative precious metal. Besides adding bling to your festive looks, it can also do wonders for your skin. Gold had long been known by ancient royalty to be a powerful beauty ingredient. It is an antioxidant and is effective in protecting the skin from free-radical damage, slowing down the first signs of ageing. 

It can also brighten complexion and improve hydration, leaving skin plump and glowing. The best part? Gold can slow down collagen depletion and stimulate cellular growth to regenerate skin. 

Therefore it comes as no surprise that the Bio-essence Bio-Gold range which contains the 24K Bio-Gold was so well received and has been going from strength to strength since its initial launch a few years ago.

The newest addition to the range is the Bio-essence Bio-Gold Radiant Black Mask, $19.90 for 4 sheets. 

The mask is formulated with charcoal powder to clarify and add radiance to the skin. It not only clears away oil and impurities, but is also designed to adhere snugly onto the face to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness.

Infused with Bio Energy Complex, it enhances skin rejuvenation for youthful radiance. The nutrient-rich essence also provides skin with long lasting and deep nourishment during the night. The end result? Dull, tired skin becomes a thing of the past.

It is recommended to use the mask two to three times a week, 15 minutes every time for best results. After use, massage the skin in circular motions until any excess essence is fully absorbed by the skin.

Other products in the Bio-essence Bio-Gold range include the Radiance Cleanser ($10.90), Eye Power Illuminator ($36.90), Gold Ratio Double Serum ($42), Radiant Black Mask ($29.90), Day Cream SPF 25/PA++ ($39.90) and Night Cream ($39.90), not forgetting the hero products Bio-Gold Gold Water and Bio-Gold Rose Gold Water ($36 each).

The Bio-essence Bio-Gold range is available at all C K Department Stores, Guardian, NTUC Fairprice, OG, Robinsons, Watsons and selected cosmetic houses.
