Gold Elements D'or Facial Peeling and Gold Elements Intensive Softening Toner Review

Gold Elements D'or Facial Peeling MSRP $149.99
Gold Element's Description:
A soft, golden facial peel, enriched with active ingredients to
assist in removing dead skin cells, dirt and unclogging pores.
It helps to condition and balance the skin, leaving it feeling fresh,
smooth, renewed, and healthy looking. It allows your skin to
“breathe” while instantly soothes, for perfectly clean, soft and
comforted skin. 
My take on it:

The packaging is pretty fancy looking, which you would expect from a $150 mask.  My only gripe with the packaging is that the actual container did not have the instructions written on it, and I do like having to save the box so I remember how a particular item is supposed to be used.
Like the toner (reviewed below), this mask feels and seems to work differently from any product I have used.  The consistency is gelatin like and glides on smoothly. Unlike most masks I have used, you only keep in on for few minutes.  I immediately experienced differences in my skins.  It was as though my face had been resurfaced, the texture felt really different.  My face felt tighter, and my pores were clear (not that I had much in that way to begin with).  The next day, I could definitely tell that it had an ongoing impact.  A pimple that had started to emerge was history.  My skin was soft.  I definitely felt that it did what it said what it would do.  Is it worth that selling price? Not at $149.99 but I know that you can find it much cheaper online.

Gold Elements Intensive Cleaning and Softening Toner MSRP $79
Gold Element's Description: 
A silky, cleansing, softening and moisturizing formula to gently
tone and re-hydrate your complexion. It gently removes
dead skin cells, to allow your skin to “breathe” while instantly
soothes, for perfectly clean, soft and comforted skin.

My take on it:

The packaging is like that of liquid soap or moisturizer  and the pump is a bit strong so the product spurts out a bit too strongly when you depress the pump. Also, the directions suggest using a cotton ball to apply. When I tried that the cotton ball soaked up a lot of the product. Therefore I would suggest using a flat cotton round instead.  Once I switched to that mode of application, it worked a lot better.  It has a faint, floral scent that fades immediately upon application.
This toner is really different from any toner I have ever used.  It's exfoliating qualities almost make me think it is like a mask/toner. Whereas most toners I have used have a thin consistency, this toner has a rather thick consistency almost like liquid soap.  It is definitely moisturizing and my skin feels tighter immediately after using it. Is it worth that selling price? Not at $79 but I know that you can find it much cheaper if you shop around and I think it would be a great toner especially for those with dry skin.

So, I would recommend both products, as they did what they said they would do. The only thing that makes me question a re-purchase is the manufacturer's suggested retail price.  Since I know you can find them a lot cheaper online, this becomes less of a concern.

I hope you all find this review to be helpful.  Please feel free to share your experiences with the product in the comments :-)
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
