Alpha H Liquid Gold is one of those cult products that every beauty blogger was talking about a few years ago. Sometimes when a product is hyped up, I wonder if it can really be that great or are so many bloggers talking about it simply because they received it for free! Spoiler alert - this product is worth the hype!
I was quite hesitant about buying this initially because I have sensitive skin and I used to be scared of acids, but I needn't have worried because I didn't have any adverse reaction. My skin was going through a really bad purging phase because of using a Clarisonic and after realising that the purging was going on for too long and really the Clarisonic was just too harsh for my skin, I stopped using it but was still left with lots of very sore spots and blemishes, plus scars. Liquid Gold contains glycolic acid, which exfoliates, helps renew the skin and boosts collagen production. This is a product for lots of skin issues - acne, ageing, scarring, skin damage, dehydration and many more! It deeply exfoliates the skin, which leaves it clearer and smoother. It also helps to heal acne scars and active spots - I find it particularly good for those pesky little bumps under the skin around the jawline that can't decide if they want to develop into spots or not! When I first started to use Liquid Gold, my skin cleared up within a few weeks. I have used it to help shift milia that had randomly developed around the bridge of my nose. I also notice that my open pores on my cheeks look less noticeable than they used to so as you can tell there are many benefits to using this product.
It is applied at night after cleansing on a cotton pad and can be used alone or under a serum/moisturiser. The next morning, my skin looks clearer and after regular use, my skin is softer. I tend to use it twice weekly because I have other treatments, masks and oils that I like to rotate at night. It can make the skin more sensitive to the sun so it is important to use a high SPF when you are using this product.
I love this product and am now on my 3rd of 4th bottle. It is a must have for me and I can't see myself ever being without it. I would recommend it to people of both genders and all skin types. For me, it lives up to its name, it really is "Liquid Gold".
Thanks for reading!
