I was definitely skeptical to try this as, like most people I have a lip balm that works for me and I've been faithful to for years (neutrogena), plus the price is maybe a bit extravagant for a lip balm but I can honestly say I am 100% converted. This is hands down the best lip balm I have ever used, it works amazingly, feels so soft and hydrating and has a really nice mattifying effect on the lips which makes it fantastic as a primer for lipstick. It smells and tastes gorgeous too- very orangey. Basically, it's just great. I wouldn't even think twice about the price now as you get a really good amount of product (15g) and it is so good! It also helps that the packaging is quite luxurious- a nice heavy, frosted glass jar, which all adds to the appeal. I think I'm going to purchase the smaller stick version to keep in my handbag and keep the jar at home by the bedside table, hopefully it's just as good.
I have been using liquid gold for maybe 3-4 months now and it is honestly one of the best skincare products I own. As someone with temperamental, sensitive and dry skin I wasn't sure about this but used once or twice a week it does all my exfoliating for me. I've completely ditched exfoliating with granule face washes etc, it is honestly that good! It is expensive but I really wouldn't be without it anymore, it just does the job wonderfully and I've never experienced any bad side effects or irritation. For me it's a bit of a wonder product as it gets rid of those niggling flaky bits of skin that seem to pop up mid week or when my skin is grey and a bit dull, using this really clarifies it and perks it up. Nothing bad to say about it really other than for the price the packaging could be a bit snazzier, but that's nitpicking really.
