How it works
Your skin’s moisture barrier (the stratum corneum, or outermost layer of the epidermis) has a bricks-and-mortar structure. The bricks are flat, dead skin cells called corneocytes, and the mortar is a fatty mixture made up of ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids. This mixture keeps your skin healthy, clear, and resilient. If it’s compromised, it can lead to skin that’s simultaneously dry and oily, extremely sensitive, or acne-prone.
Liquid Gold is formulated with ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids to mimic and strengthen your natural moisture barrier. By healing dehydration and replenishing that fatty mixture in your stratum corneum, you can address the above symptoms and discover healthy, bouncy, resilient skin.
Is it right for me?
Liquid Gold is great for all skin types, but works especially well for dehydrated or over-exfoliated skin. Those with normal to oily skin may find Liquid Gold is moisturizing enough to be their only moisturizer, while drier skin types may want to follow it with a heavier cream.
The yellow color is completely natural, caused by the bright red color of sea buckthorn oil. It's non-staining and vanishes on application for most skin types. Those with extremely pale skin may experience a temporary orange tint, so may want to only use Liquid Gold before bed.
All Stratia products are free of common irritants like fragrance, alcohol, and essential oils.

Absolutely loving the Liquid Gold. I have fairly dry skin so use this then top with a moisturizer day and night. I was having issues with my skin barrier and this has made a significant difference!
I am absolutely in love with Liquid Gold. For years, I have searched for a moisturizer for what I consider my very "normal, average" skin that hates most moisturizers. My skin is neither oily nor dry, but while it tolerates harsher things like acids and retinols without an issue it would react to gentler products that so many people love. Every moisturizer I used would without fail break me out within a couple of days and I'd pretty much given up on finding one. I figured I'd give LG a shot and it didn't break me out at ALL! I was worried about the niacinamide because my skin reacted poorly to niacinamide serums (flushing and itchy) but it hasn't been a problem and I'm glad I could incorporate it in a way that didn't irritate my skin. I'm halfway through my first bottle and I already ordered another so that I won't be without it.
As much as I wanted to love this product, it didn’t workout for my skin, nor my husband’s. After a few days of use, I noticed comedones on my face.. I stopped using it and gave it to my husband. I figured maybe it is not agreeing well with my combination skin. However, same happened to my husband who has normal to dry skin, after a couple of days, his skin started breaking out (Ps. never seen any pimple on him in 14 years!). Even though the ingredients are non-comedogenic, something about the formulation caused both of us to break out.
For me, this is a great daytime moisturizer. For night, I would prefer a heavier moisturizer as I've been using tret & have been experiencing more dryness.
It activated my acne on my chin. Really bad I haven’t seen my acne this bad in years. I wanted to love this product sorry
