OKAY- so I kinda have a problem when it comes to buying new beauty products on Amazon. I spend an embarrassing about of time getting lost in reviews & just filling up the cart with all of the odd/different/out of the box beauty products you can think of. I’ve tried snail infused face cleansers, wine wipes for your skin (these are amazing!!!!) & the latest random purchase- the 24k gold beauty bar.
At first, I was SUPER skeptical about this beauty bar… because the idea of a gold bar that vibrates at super speed to give you an instant facelift just seemed to woo woo-ish for me… but after A LOT of research, I found that this weird tool is actually legit all the rage in Japan & Korea.
You guys know how I am a die hard fan of Korean skincare products… so this definitely got me interested. Plus- it reminds me of my jade roller, & I am obsessed w/ my jade roller.
Here’s the Beauty Bar Lowdown:
+ what is it? a T shaped facial tool that is plated in 24k gold & emits 6000 micro-vibrations per minute.
+ how to use it: wash your face & apply your moisturizer or serum as normal. use the gold bar while your lotion is still damp & massage in upward strokes on your face for about 3-5 minutes (the longer you use, the better results you get!).
+ but why does this work?: the combination of the gold ions*** & the micro-vibrations stimulate facial muscles & in turn, tightens, lifts & contours the skin. [*** I need to see some gold ion studies, but the vibration def. makes sense!]
I mean- still unsure? I don’t blame you… sounded way too good to be true for me as well. SO, naturally, I had to try it out for myself & to my honest surprise, it exceeded my expectations.
… & no, this is not a sponsored post.
This gold beauty bar is quickly becoming one of my favorite parts of my day- so much so, I have even been using it twice a day for good measure.
I first use it in the morning after I put on a sheet mask, & before I put on my makeup. When I remove the sheet mask & there is still leftover serum on my face, I used the beauty bar to give my face a quick lymphatic drainage massage. It also helps reduce that morning facial puffiness and define your jaw & cheekbones.
At night I use it post night cream & neck cream (no to tech neck plz) to help my moisturizers absorb into my skin better. I will just chill on the couch, watch tv, & massage my face for a solid 10 minutes. It’s honestly SO relaxing.
Now, I can’t tell you if it’s the super fast vibrations & the upwards motions making my skin look tighter (does wonders for the jowl area!!!) or just the way the tool helps product absorb & that’s plumping things up- but who cares, cause it just does the trick.
