I mainly bought this mask by NOHJ Modeling Mask Serum Squalane. This mask has little gold flecks in the mask and serum. Thd serum is light and abdorbx nicely. My skin absobed the serum nicely and my skin was not only hydrated but I felt good about getting the squalane, in larger doses, back into my skin. As far as gold goes, it's debatable whether it does anything at all, for our skin. Gold just makes the product, more luxurious. I'm down for that though! The mask itself, adhered well. No issues there. This mask is one of my favs and I will be purchasing them again, and more types like this, from the brand.
