Linden Leaves is a premier natural brand from New Zealand. This year they are celebrating 20 years of crafting quality natural skincare by launching a Gold Range! The collection consists of a Gold Body Wash, Body Lotion, Toning Face & Body Mist, Body Oil and Shimmer Mousse.

Bloggers were invited to the launch event and believe me ...we were served cocktails that had 23 kt Gold leaf in it! They were so amazing and heady! I hardly ever drink..like once in 3 years so I tend to get dizzy in just a few sips. I wish I didn't had to drive back home. I never wanted to stop drinking gold!

Anyways, we received Gold Body Oil and Shimmer Mousse in our goody bags and I've fallen in love with both of them. We'll ogle at the mousse some other day but here's the body oil for you.

Price- $64.99 for 150 ml
Availability- Various pharmacies and beauty stores NZ wide and online at www.lindenleaves.com

Linden Leaves says "A treatment body oil enhanced with amaranth oil to hydrate the skin and improve moisture retention. Nourishing essential fatty acids from chia help firm and soften the skin – delivering a long lasting radiant glow and healthy, younger looking skin"

The product is catered more towards dry n mature skin. I can't tell you if it made my skin look younger but it is certainly a fab body moisturizer- Non-sticky, non-slippery (no silicones), fast absorbing and long lasting. Bonus- It smells pretty good too! 

The ingredient list isn't extensive and consists of Grapeseed Oil, Chia Seed Oil, Meadowfoam Oil, Amaranth Seed Oil, Rosemary Leaf Extract and 23 kt Gold leaf. There are some fragrance components in it as well. All together a pretty good formulation. The Gold leaf is very thin but it does come out and dissolves into skin when rubbed. Such luxury! 

You don't need a lot of oil either. It spreads ok but isn't overly slippery like some oils that have silicones in them. The moisturizing effect is definitely very long lasting, way more than 24 hours. Skin looks healthy and glows. The oil is non-sticky, doesn't stain clothes and absorbs super fast. Its no where to be seen after a couple of minutes! The gold leaf flakes tend to settle down so you have to shake the bottle to get them into action. 

I've been using the oil as hand moisturizer too. I rub some in before hitting bed. I've also used it on face once and got no acne n stuff!

Notice that tiny gold flake?
In summary, an ideal body moisturizer for dry skin during winters and a perfect gift for your cherished lady. Even the bottle is display shelf worthy! Who thinks this looks like a Lava Lamp?

What's your take on this Gold range? Outrageous or pure luxury? Would you consider buying it? I have my eyes on the Gold Toning Face & Body Mist next!
