L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Golden Balm Review

Anti-Aging Gold or Just a Balm Bomb?


Do you have alligator skin that you just can’t seem to get hydrated?

If that sounds like you then L’Oreal claims to have just the product that you need, and it’s made for your neck and chest, too!

It’s tough to find a good longevity product that actually does what it claims but L’Oreal products tend to be a little better at coming through than some others are.

Today we’re going to take a look at their Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Golden Balm Face, Neck and Chest. The Age Perfect line is created specifically for mature skin over 50 and makes some pretty big promises. We’re going to take a look at what’s in this cream and see what users have to say about it.

What Does L’Oreal Claim About Age Perfect Golden Balm?

This cream is formulated with essential oils and a calcium complex to nourish, firm and “redensify” mature skin, especially the less-resilient skin on your neck and chest. It “recushions” in from within and elasticity is improved so that your skin is more resilient and toned.I guess if you’re going to make up words, those are pretty good ones to make up in the age management industry.

Next, L’Oreal claims that it’s extremely hydrating and penetrates well below your skin’s surface to lock in moisture for a full day. Your skin will feel pampered and the “butter-soft” balm supposedly melts when it comes into contact with your skin so that it feels rich and luxurious gliding on.

Wow. Either that’s a ton of expert marketing (read BS), or I really need to rush out and buy this! Let’s peel back the layers and see what’s really going on behind the marketing hype.

What’s In Age Perfect Golden Balm?

The first thing that jumps out at me when I scan the ingredients list is that it’s definitely packed with herbal extracts and oils. There’s at least 10 in there. Camelina Sativa oil and rosa canina oil are both known for their moisturizing abilities and high vitamin content, especially our anti-aging superhero vitamins A and E. The rosa canina also has a high vitamin C content. Some of the others, such as anthemis nobilis flower oil are soothing agents and anti-inflammatories.

Since L’oreal places these pretty high on the list, my guess is that you’re going to reap at least some benefit from them. The addition of hydroxyapatite may help with getting all of the good stuff deep down into your skin so that your body can use it and it makes your skin soft, too.

The calcium pantetheine sulfonate may also act as a skin lightener so that’s a possible added bonus that wasn’t mentioned specifically.

Another thing that’s pretty apparent is that the cream is going to feel smooth and silky. The first several ingredients are water, mineral oil, dimethicone, Shea butter, carnauba wax and beeswax. That combination almost guarantees a luxurious texture. There are several different perfuming agents in it though, so let’s see what users are saying.

What Are Users Saying About Age Perfect Golden Balm?

As suspected the biggest legitimate complaint about this product is the smell. Some describe it as matronly and others just say that it’s too much. A few people did complain of headaches so if you’re sensitive to scents, you may want to try a sample first.

There were several complaints that the balm was too thick and felt waxy. While the waxy part may be legitimate, we need to remember that this is a BALM, not a cream. By definition, it’s going to be thicker so start with just a little when you use it.

Those complaints aside, women 50+ love this balm, especially those with dry or extra dry skin. A huge percentage of users say that it delivers as promised and that skin looks plumper and moister. It glides on well, absorbs nicely and makes your skin feel soft. Wrinkles appear less noticeable and skin looks younger. According to them, this balm is the bomb!

Final Word

If you have mature skin that could benefit from some serious hydration, give this balm a try. It’s rich in beneficial herbals and moisturizers and there are no parabens in it. If you’re sensitive to scents though, use a sample first if you can.

    Over the years, I have tried many expensive products for my skin. I now know that expensive doesn’t mean quality. Age Perfect Golden Balm is very affordable and better than any other I’ve tried. I’m 63 years young and live in Arizona where the desert is hot and dry. My skin is loving the daily moisture from the Golden Balm. I never noticed the scent and the waxy texture of the cream seems to “warm” and spread easily as you work it gently into your skin. I use this balm along with other L’Oreal Age Perfect products and my skin is beautiful as a result.

    I love it! I have ‘red head’ skin, dry and peely in cold weather. This product feels wonderful, and really moisturizes. So very worth the money!
