I was drawn to this product because it offered shimmer, moisture, an irresistible 24k Colloidal gold ingredient, and not to mention a 45% discount. I had never tried this brand; I took a risk to see what it was all about.
Here is what LaRocca’s website had to say about it:
“This ultra-rich and nourishing crème beautifully soothes the skin with intense moisture that lasts all day. Using an enriching blend of natural butters and oils including murumuru butter, shea butter, avocado butter and olive butter, Champagne and Shimmer crème enhances elasticity and provides deep long lasting hydration to dry and damaged skin. Using the restorative properties of LaRocca’s Signature 24K Colloidal Gold along with champagne grapes, green tea and cranberry extracts, the product contains no fillers or binders, which allows aging skin to absorb water better over time for long lasting, truly beautiful results.

I’m all about presentation. When I received it, it came in a nice packing box with the creme safely secured inside. I immediately unscrewed the cap off and it smelled a combination of citrus, champagne, and butter. The consistency was thick and granular. When I lathered it on my skin, it felt a little greasy and sandlike.
Overall, I wasn’t to keen on the smell, but it does moisturize your skin and give you some shimmer. My skin was soft and dry-free all day, but for the price, petroleum jelly can also do the same job. I wouldn’t buy this product again, but on a positive note, I scored some points on Birchbox to earn money towards cosmetics of my choice.
