When Susie Sierra received a message in her daily meditation one morning, her life and beauty brand took a whole new turn. On this particular morning, Susie was suddenly transported to a cool, dark cave beneath her flower garden. In the inky blackness, she reached down to a stream running through the cave to discover it was a river of pure liquid gold.
"My meditation garden is full of surprises and unexpected things can happen but I knew this experience was special," says Susie.
When developing her range of luxury facial oils, she remembered this magical event and was inspired to research the benefits of gold for skincare. This led her to discover the extraordinary properties of this precious alloy.
24K gold is one of nature’s most prized elements. As a skincare ingredient, gold stimulates blood flow to the skin, firming and improving skin's elasticity. It slows down the collagen depletion, increasing skin's resilience to the elements and adds a lustrous glow to the complexion.
Gold is a wonderful natural anti-inflammatory and skin calmative and ideal for restoring life to mature skin. Younger skin also benefits from pure gold by way of prevention from premature ageing and the onset of wrinkles. No wonder it was so highly prized by the great Queens of Egypt, Cleopatra & Nefertiti as their favourite beauty elixir.
With a generous infusion of the highest grade pure gold leaf, Sierra Gold Morning & Evening Face Oils restore skin wealth with a brilliant radiance.
Sierra Gold Light Morning Face Oil This silky gold elixir includes 9 plant and fragrant flowers oils. The scents of the Frangipani and Hyacinth flowers (both natural antidepressants) evoke feelings of joy and lightheartedness. The light, daytime formula brings vitality and radiance to skin all day long. It soothes and enlivens skin, rejuvenating and protecting, leaving no oily residue.
Sierra Gold Deep Evening Face Oil This luxurious blend of 8 pure botanical oils includes the rich, smooth Camellia Seed oil. The luxurious formula repairs imperfections and nourishes skin deeply while you sleep. The sacred Blue Lotus flower, revered by Buddhist Monks for centuries for its transformative and regenerative properties is a special ingredient and can be categorised as an aphrodisiac. The deeply sensuous, multi-layered fragrance also promotes restful sleep, making it the perfect nighttime formula.

How do your face oils effect oily skin?
The right combination of oils can help balance out oil production. If skin is deprived of natural oils, it will go into overproduction to make up for a lack of sebum. Marula oil, Red Raspberry seed oil, Meadowfoam seed oil and Camellia seed oil are all known to assist in the regulation of oil production. All these oils are included in our Sierra Gold Face Oils.
Why is gold include in your oils?
We include 24k gold leaf in our face oils. We do not use gold flakes. The softness of the gold leaf allows for easy dissolution onto the skin's surface. Tiny particles seep in to protect against fine lines and discolouration. In this way, pure gold stimulates blood flow to tissues and reinvigorates tired skin. Gold is also a powerful symbol of our beauty, strength and resilience.
What is the best way to use Sierra Gold Face Oils?
For both our Morning and Evening face oils we recommend applying after your day/night moisturiser. The fragrances of our products are designed to be experienced in their pure state. Breathe in the beautiful scents then mindfully smooth or press into the skin. Our face oils seal in the hydration received from your moisturiser for all day/night protection and nourishment.
