The Night Before

If you’ve left your skin prep to the last minute, the night before an event is as good a time as any to get started. Exfoliating within your routine is the fastest way to clear dull, dead skin from the surface to reveal a refreshed and radiant complexion, ready for any festive outing.


Start with a double cleanse… Begin by cleansing your skin with a non-foaming, skin loving cleanser like our Melting Moment Cleansing Balm. This luxurious balm-to-oil cleanser instantly melts away stubborn makeup and SPF, with nourishing actives and antioxidants including native Australian Wild Orange Leaf Extract, Sandalwood Seed Oil and Grapeseed Oil to leave your skin hydrated, soft, and radiant.

Follow with a second cleanse targeted to your skin type. For a normal to dry skin we love calming and soothing Balancing Cleanser. Combination to oily skins may prefer our lightweight, non-foaming gel, Triple Action Cleanser. Or for those struggling with breakouts, Clear Skin Daily Face Wash with 2% Salicylic Acid is perfect.


Exfoliate – for the smoothest complexion… With fingertips apply a thin layer of Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask to the face, neck and decolletage. This creamy mask combines AHAs Glycolic and Lactic Acids to accelerate skin renewal leaving your skin smooth and radiant. Barrier loving Shea Butter provides instant nourishment while powerful antioxidants Ferulic Acid and TazmanTM Pepper help to boost and revive a tired skin.

New to Accelerating Acids? Leave Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask to work for just 5 minutes on your first use, before gradually building your application time with each future use.

If you’re acid savvy leave this mask to work for up to ten minutes. You’ll feel a tingle, which indicates the mask is getting to work.


Nourishment and beauty sleep… Replenishing hydration and getting as much rest as possible before your big event will help to leave you looking and feeling refreshed. Apply Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream to hydrate and nurture the delicate eye area, reducing the appearance of puffiness and dark circles, and finish with Essential Hydration Cream on the face, neck and decolletage to lock in moisture as well as nourish, calm, and soothe.

Post Party Revival

Late nights, party makeup and flowing champagne can be so much fun but can also wreak havoc on your skin. To ensure your skin survives the party season and stays glowing and healthy it’s just as important to look after it post event.

Follow our quick post-party routine to nourish and soothe a partied-out complexion.


Start with our Melting Moment Cleansing Balm to ensure any remnants of makeup are effectively removed and skin is left fresh and clean.

Pro Tip: Melting Moment Cleansing Balm also doubles as a leave on nourishing mask! After your first cleanse, apply a thin layer of Cleansing Balm across face, neck and décolletage and leave for 10minutes. Natural Australian botanicals and nourishing actives work to calm, soothe, and rehydrate skin while you relax.


Next up is Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream which targets the appearance of puffiness and dark circles around the delicate eye area. With Lime PearlTM AHAs and illuminating Diamond particles that work to scatter and diffuse light for a brightened photo finish.

Pro Tip: The cooling ceramic tip helps to calm, soothe, and reduce puffiness, so throw your Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream in the fridge before you head out ready to depuff those late-night eyes once you’re home.


And finally, it’s time to layer on some extra hydration and treat your skin to some post party TLC. Vitamin E Serum boosted with skin loving ceramides is the perfect skin saviour, suitable for all skin types.
