Sample Testing: Guerlain L’or Radiance Concentrate

Sample Information

Guerlain L’or Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold
5ml, made in France

Product Description

Gold is the most precious of all metals. Pure, it reflects light in an extraordinary and unfailing way. To light up the complexion, Guerlain has chosen to include pure 24-carat gold in a hydrating smoothing gel. The gold has been fashioned into precious flakes using a unique time-honoured method, to integrate them magically into the gel. As though suspended in the air, the flakes sparkle to reveal their precious treasure: radiance.

The complexion is immediately awakened, thanks to the formula’s extreme hydrating action: +112% after two hours and 92% after six hours.

My Thoughts

I love the cooling sensation upon application of this product. The gel-like texture feels extremely fresh and calming on the skin. Once blended, the gold flecks disappear. I think this product will work extremely well on those with dry skin. I have combination skin so I only apply it to my cheek area.

This base doesn’t provide any coverage nor help conceal imperfections like pores or even up my skin tone.


Will I Purchase Guerlain L’or Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold in full size?

No, because I couldn’t see much difference that makes me want to buy it. For my skin type, I don’t think this product works but I believe it will work wonders on a more suitable candidate.

Have you tried this before? Do you like it?

  1. I have this product. I have very dry skin and find that it hydrates without feeling greasy or sticky. It is very pleasant to apply and feels wonderful on my face. It does not conceal anything though so I just use it now and then to refresh my skin and as a treat.

    • Hi Mimi,
      I am so happy this product works for you.
      I believe it’s a great product but it didn’t show too big a difference for me to purchase it.
      Sad tho but I am enjoying their Météorites Perles Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer =)
