About the product

What Is It:

The 24kt Liquid Gold Face oil balances sebum production.  For oily skin, it tricks the skin into thinking it is perfectly hydrated and stops producing excess sebum.  For dry skin, it provides needed hydration.

Our insight:

For people with oily skin, the natural tendency is to keep washing off excess oil.  However, what is happening is the reverse because this is tricking the body into thinking that it is dehydrated and triggering it to produce even more oil.  Adding oil to oily skin regimen will calm down oil production by providing needed hydration. Mineral oil is pore-clogging which is why all Restorsea products are free from mineral oil. However, non-mineral oils actually work to help clear up acne also . For those with dry skin, oil provides additional and much needed hydration.

How to use:

The most effective way to use oil is AFTER you apply your moisturizer. Why? Because if you apply the oil before the moisturizer, you’re preventing the moisturizer from penetrating into the skin cells because it can’t pass through the oil. But if you apply the moisturizer first and then pat the oil on top, the oil creates a moisture barrier, sealing the moisturizer into the skin and preventing the air from making it dissipate.

  1. Apply a pea-size amount of the moisturizer to the back of your hand.
  2. Spread the moisturizer evenly all over your face
  3. SHAKE WELL. Apply a couple drops of the facial oil to the back of your hand
  4. Pat the oil all over your face. Patting places the oil on top of the moisturizer instead of rubbing and smearing them together.

24kt gold sparkles in my moisturizer? I mean, why not?! Like any Restorsea product, it's 100% natural, non-toxic and uses an enzyme that targets and exfoliates dead skin cells while letting healthy ones flourish and keeping sebum production in check—meaning it keeps oily skin in check and hydrates dry skin where needed.

I have combination skin and I received and tried this product from beauty tap and the product says to use two drops I had to use four because my skin felt dry with only two. I have extremely sensitive skin and this oil didn’t break me out it also didn’t burn overall it’s a good oil.


I have oily skin and this definitely helped balance my oils, while providing my skin with enough hydration!


One of the best skin care products I have ever tried in my entire life! Instant hydration and glow, through the days the skin looks healthier, more hydrated and with a nice glow! Everybody is asking me what am I using for my skin, this oil is a life changing! Perfect combination: The Moisturizer + 24K Liquid Gold Oil and Night Cream + 24K Liquid Gold Oil. Me encanta!!!!


I love Patti Pao's guidance and recommendations about using this product. I've tried it under and over Restorsea Rejuvenating Day Cream 50g and Restorsea Restoring Night Cream 50g, and it works beautifully both ways. On lazy days, I use it by itself as my moisturizer, and I'm always amazed at how it absorbs without feeling oily. I adore bi-phase products, including Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum Mist 110ml, but I usually use oils at night. Not anymore! I've used this twice a day for 10 days now, and I'm most impressed... Read more


This facial oil worked so well with my skin! Immediately it plumped my skin and was so hydrating with this amazing glow. My skin instantly felt super soft. 24k Liquid gold.... love at first sight! Very lightweight oil. If I use in the AM I will apply it over my Restorsea day cream and for my nighttime routine I use it on top of my Restorsea night cream and once I wake up....my skin looks so hydrated with a glow.


This is a brilliant addition to your moisturizer! If you massage upward with your roller you will see a HUGE difference in your skins appearance in the first week!!


Excellent tip!


I apply right on top of Restorsea Day Time moisturizer, and immediately hydrate my skin. I saw the glow on my skin. As I get older I noticed my skin was getting dull and lifeless. This 24k gold facial oil brought back 10 years of my skin. Couldn't be happier!


If you want to be boogie, then heres your chance. This is just an excellent hydrator. Squalane is one of my favorite ingredients because its a simple ingredient that keeps your skin looking supple. This is the perfect product to enhance your nightly skincare routine to take it to that ultra luxurious level. The gold in it is really interesting and although its still being studied, gold is known to have unique hydrating properties.


This is the product that I was most excited to try and I'm so glad that I did. I'm an oilier skin type, but it's very light weight and wears very well under makeup. If you're on the fence about getting this product, just pull the trigger. You'll be just as happy as I am.


I am on the oilier side as well. How is this product helping with your oil production?


Hi @angelware! I have only been using this for a week (and have combination skin in the spring and summer), yet I've found it controls oil quite well. During Patti Pao's live demo (founder), she mentioned that she made this to hydrate while also controlling and balancing sebum. So far, I've found that to be true. I've even layered the Restorsea Day Cream over it (although she recommends the reverse order) on my drier areas without noticing excess shine or oil during the day. It also dries down surprisingly quickly, so I've had no trouble using makeup over it.


Thanks Tracy! 👍👍👍
