HTY Gold Review!

Recently, I have been given the great opportunity to try out a product that I had never heard of and I do not know why because it works wonders! HTY Gold (Hide The Years) is an Anti-Aging creamed oil that is all natural! They do not test on animals or even use animal by-products and they do not use harsh chemicals, so you can trust what you are putting on your body or even in for that matter since you absorb through your skin.

I was so excited when I received the box that I opened it right away. I was confused at first because I went to use it and it was not creamy like I expected....it was hard as a rock! Of course this was because it was in the mid-to-low teens outside that day and of course anything on a delivery truck would be the same temperature! I used what I was able to get on my arms and set it aside to get to room temperature. I turned to the Intensive Body Serum and used that on my legs and stomach. They immediately felt hydrated and soft to the touch.

When I went back later and grabbed the cream to use I was very surprised, it of course had become room temperature by then but I scooped it out and it was so soft--just like whip cream! It literally melted in my hands and turned to oil as I rubbed it into my arms. This too made my skin feel so hydrated, but it did not absorb as quickly as the Intensive Body Serum and it was like a layer that was moisturizing and locking in that moisture all in one.

After several days of using these products (2x a day, once in the morning and once in the evening) I can safely say this cream and serum are a must have! If you are concerned about aging, the appearance of aging or just have dry skin, this is something you should check out! I am very interested in trying out the face and eye products they offer as well. I feel confident in the ingredients and their ability to help my skin look its best.

Even looking at their ingredient list, you don't wonder what something is; here is a list of the Body Gold's ingredients:

Elaeis Guineensis (Palm Oil), Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter (Cocoa Butter), Red Elaeis Guineensis (Red Palm Super Olein), Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam Seed Oil), Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose Oil), Triticum Vulgaree (Wheat Germ Oil), Lecithin

I was curious and took the time to look at the ingredients list of my previously go-to lotion that claims it is natural, here is what I was shocked to find:
Water
Glycerin
Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)
Isopropyl Palmitate
Dimethicone
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride
Cetearyl Alcohol
Cyclomethicone
Butylene Glycol
Stearic Acid
Biosaccharide Gum-1
Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate
Crosspolymer
Sodium Polyacrylate
Glyceryl Stearate
PEG-100 Stearate
BIS-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane
Sorbitan Stearate
Honey
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil
PEG-32
Polysorbate 60
Polyacrylamide
C13-14 Isoparaffin
Laureth-7
Fragrance
Triethanolamine
Glycereth-2 Cocoate
Benzoic Acid
Disodium EDTA
BHT

I have no idea what half--more than half of these ingredients are or what they do. Makes me cringe!


Something about this combination of Oils makes your skin glow! My dry winter skin looked fabulous and well-hydrated after using these products. One thing I have to comment on is that obviously these products are made from natural oils, this does mean that you may feel "greasy" after using some of the cream. I didn't mind but I know some people do not like that feeling so I felt I had to forewarn you, the Intensive Body Serum however, absorbs very well and doesn't feel greasy!

Overall, I give this product a 10/10 for its consistency, its use of natural ingredients and for not testing on animals to provide a unique and truly valuable product! I highly recommend it!

Right now if you check out their website they are running a Valentine's day sale! If you buy a 12 oz. Body Gold, you get a second for FREE! This is such a great deal and is only good until 2/13/2013!
