BUY THIS NOW: Alpha H Liquid Gold

I've heard a great deal about Alpha H's cult classic Liquid Gold over the years, but I'd never quite gotten round to trying it myself.  Well, my friends, now I have tried it, and I have joined the Cult of Alpha H.  This stuff is AMAZING.

Liquid Gold is an overnight treatment which contains Glycolic Acid.  It's a thin liquid which you apply to the face in a thin layer via a cotton pad, and left on overnight, it essentially resurfaces the skin with a chemical exfoliation effect.  It does tingle when you apply it, and it's definitely not recommended for delicate or sensitive skin - even my relatively un-sensitive skin finds it a bit irritating if I use it every other night, which is the maximum frequency recommended.

Anyway - after sweeping a Liquid Gold laden cotton pad across my face, I wait for it to dry and then apply a moisturiser on top, then go to sleep assured that I'll wake up with bright, fresh skin.  If you want an extra high powered treatment, you can skip the moisturiser - when I do, I'm surprised to find that my skin still feels soft in the morning, not at all tight or dry.

Whilst the overnight effect is definitely noticeable, it's the long term effect that's truly impressive.  After a few months use, my skin is incredibly clear, very smooth, and my frown lines are definitely softer.  I'm using less foundation, as my skin looks pretty good on its own nowadays, and it needs less evening out than it did before.  Bloody impressive stuff, eh?

If you're looking for brighter, clearer, more even skin, Liquid Gold is definitely worth a try - just be careful to introduce it slowly, perhaps twice a week, to let your skin acclimatise and avoid any flare ups.  And make sure you wear facial sunscreen every day, as acid based products make your skin much more sensitive to the sun.  At £33.50 for 100ml, it's expensive, but I've used less than half my 100ml bottle in the past three months, and quite frankly I'm impressed enough with the effects that I'd happily pay more!

Disclosure:  Bought by me.

  1. I'm not a fan as I find it too harsh for my skin. I prefer the pixi glow tonic.

  2. I have been hearing good things about this product, and I checked to see the glycolic percentage, which is 5%. There are stronger glycolic acids available, one from Therapy Systems that has a 15% glycolic percentage, and its results are impressive. I wonder if it's the other ingredients that make this one work so well.
