  • Is it right for me?

  • Liquid Gold is a lightweight but powerful moisturizer that fortifies your skin’s moisture barrier to help heal, hydrate, strengthen, and soothe.

  • Your skin’s moisture barrier (the stratum corneum, or outermost layer of the epidermis) has a bricks-and-mortar structure: the bricks are skin cells called corneocytes, and the mortar is a fatty mixture made up of ceramides, cholesterol, and free 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 your dehydration and replenishing that fatty mixture in your stratum corneum, you can address the above symptoms and discover healthy, bouncy, resilient skin.

    Like all Stratia products, Liquid Gold is unfragranced, gimmick-free, and formulated based on hard science.

  • 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 need to follow up 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 (paler than MAC NC10/NW10) may experience a temporary orange tint, so may want to only use Liquid Gold before bed.

I love this lotion! I struggle with rosacea, eczema, and have very sensitive skin. I so appreciate that this has no artificial fragrance or colors. The ingredients are so well thought out, and each one is extremely beneficial for protecting your skin barrier. I have noticed such a big difference in the hydration of my skin. And I have had no breakouts from this either!!

Holy Grail Product

I'm on my third bottle of this moisturizer and as long as Alli keeps making it, I'll keep buying it. Sidenote: Alli please please please don't ever stop making this! I have normal to dry skin and find this is a great daytime moisturizer and gives plenty of moisture while putting back everything my skin needs. My face tends to dry out at night, and I still use liquid gold but add a few drops of squalane oil to give a bit of a moisture boost. I find I don't need any other moisturizer and I refuse to give up on this little guy. It's the best, I've even gotten a few of my friends hooked on it too. Such an amazing and effective product for such a low price.

I really wanted to love this product for my face, but unfortunately it irritated my very sensitive skin and caused me to break out. Dejected, I relegated it away from my daily routine. A few weeks later, I had gone to see a dermatologist about aggressive Keratosis Pilaris on my arms, which was spreading and was so dry and painful. I would scratch in my sleep which left me with PIH, rough skin, and lots of scarring. The derm prescribed me an emollient which didn't do much. Desparate for any kind of relief, I grabbed the Stratia Liquid Gold since I saw on r/skincareaddiction it helped with eczema. In a word, WOW. The relief was immediate. I have used it daily, and now every other day for the past few weeks and I've had no new breakouts, the texture is improving, the bumps are not spreading, I don't scratch at night anymore and wake up to weeping broken bleeding skin. My PIH is also fading which I wasn't expecting. I'm so glad I found this. I'll never stop purchasing it for my eczema now. I've suffered with it for so long and I honestly could weep for what it's done for me.

Freaking Awesome

I absolutely love this moisturizer. I use it day and night and it sinks into my skin so easily, and best of all, it layers under other products so nicely. I have extremely sensitive skin and perioral dermatitis, and Liquid Gold has not given me any kind of irritation. It gives me an amazing glow too, which looks beautiful during the day! It is definitely lightweight but very powerful. At night I usually layer it underneath my SoonJung Barrier Intensive cream, but I've gone to bed many times with just Liquid Gold and my skin is still nicely hydrated in the morning. Thank you so much for making a truly irritant-free product with no gimmicks -- such a rare treasure in the world of skin care!!!

The hype is real!

ive been using this product for years now- it was there for me when i first started my skincare journey and itll be a staple in my routine for as long as its around! i know it gets a ton of love all over the internet, and its hard to believe something could be *that good*, but it really does live up to the hype. when i first started using this my skin was very angry and dry from a long while of me not being nice to it, my moisture barrier was trashed, and my face was sensitive to being irritated by damn near anything i put on it. Liquid Gold was a huge part of turning that around. its hydrating enough without being super heavy, it doesn't have any irritating fragrance, and the science behind it is sound. currently i would classify my skin as slightly sensitive (nowhere near as much as it used to be!) combo. i have minor eczema, and im a bit dry on my cheeks and occasionally get oily on my chin and nose. now that my skin is more balanced, i still use it as one of my main moisturizers. on an average day, i use this morning and night, one pump focused mainly on my cheeks where im most dry. if its a really dry day, especially in the winter, i will do one pump for each side of my face. i also really like it for if im recovering from a cold or something that's made my nose all flaky and terrible, i feel like it helps me come back from peeling faster than just regular moisturizer. its also super helpful for if ive over exfoliated or am having some other skin dryness i need to get relief from. im very fair, and i do notice the sliiightest bit of yellow tint when i initially apply it, but once it absorbs in its not noticeable. overall i cant recommend this enough! its a fantastic product and if allie ever stops making it i will probably cry :P
