I hesitated buying this for a long time because too many people told me it would be too harsh for my super sensitive skin. Being the ever stubborn blogger that I am, I snapped up a travel size mini kit at the back end of 2016 just so I could try it. Read on for my Alpha H Liquid Gold Review.
Coming all the way from sunny Australia Alpha H is renowned as an industry leader in corrective skincare with a worldwide market in 25 countries. You can see why the Alpha H Liquid Gold has become an absolute cult product.
Packed with Glycolic Acid, Alpha H Liquid Gold is a resurfacing treatment that can lessen sun damage and pigmentation as well as brightening dull and tired skin. Sounds like a miracle in a bottle right? I had tried the Pixi Glow Tonic before and had absolutely no visible benefits so I was dubious to see what the Alpha H Liquid Gold (£33.50) could do for me.
It is recommended that you use it every other night, having the choice of using it as a toner by following it up with further skin care elements or for a deeper treatment, leaving it on and not applying anything else.
With twice weekly use I have been thoroughly impressed. Even from the first use my skin looked brighter and less congested. My foundation sat better and I had a glow I hadn’t had before, which certainly didn’t come from a full 8 hours sleep.
I apply the Alpha H Liquid Gold with a textured cotton pad to add a slight manual exfoliation in with the acid. The rougher, pimply skin around the edges of my face has really benefit from using the Alpha H Liquid Gold as it is softening with each use.
A slight tingling is to be expected during use and after a quick check with Alpha H, it just a sign it is doing it’s thing. It is not uncomfortable or painful but quite reassuring to know that the product is working as it is quite expensive.
I leave the Alpha H Liquid Gold on over night as a treatment on a Sunday and Wednesday as I feel it is giving me the best results so far.
Clinical Trials found to reduce wrinkle depth within 20 minutes and increase the moisture in the skin – as a 33yr old woman this is music to my ears and I wish I had tried this sooner.
