Alpha H Liquid Gold was always on top of my never ending list of “must buy when I have enough money” things. One of those cult products that being raved about worldwide! I bit the bullet a few months ago and ordered a 50ml travel size just to try and see what the fuss was about. Let’s just say I re-purchased the 100ml as soon as I ran out!
What is it?
Liquid Gold is essentially a ‘sleep in’ liquid peel which has 5% glycolic acid and licorice extract. It can dramatically revitalise dull and ageing skin that’s lost its lustre, whilst lessening the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, blackheads, blemishes, pigmentation, scarring and redness. Phew!!!
This product is truely a lazy girls’s dream! After cleansing your skin at night, you simply dampen a cotton pad with the liquid ( its runny like a toner ) and wipe all over your face. Thats it! You can apply your usual night moisturiser over if you wish, but for the full benefits you are advised to just use the Liquid Gold and nothing else. I have to admit, this took a while to get used to, as I love slathering my face is a multitude of products before bedtime! Your skin will tingle when you apply this but enjoy that tingle…it’s doing wonderful things for your skin!!
When does the magic happen?
Approx. 20 minutes later to be exact! Clinical studies done by Alpha H showed that within just 20 minutes of applying Liquid Gold, moisture levels increased and any skin roughness was reduced. That’s pretty awesome! The first morning I woke up after applying this, it honestly felt like someone had moisturised my face overnight – my skin felt AMAZING! I was glowing and just blown away by the results.
How often do I use it?
For those like myself with normal / dry skin it is advised to use every second night. Oily skin girls can also use this every second night. For those with sensitive skin, I would advise to do a small patch test first, just to see how your skin will react. As I mentioned above, the tingling feeling is completely normal but you might just stick to using once or twice a week.
Amazing. I can definitely see why this is called Liquid Gold, it’s such an apt description!! From years of cystic acne and now to battling ageing skin, this has just transformed everything from moisture to clarity. I love that it’s so simple to use, and while it may seem on the expensive side, a 50ml bottle lasted me 3 months!
