Ah a real holy grail product and I am sure you have heard of it already the Alpha H Liquid Gold.
Liquid Gold is glycolic acid based liquid peel that lowers your skins pH level to increase moisture levels, refine the look of wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage. Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that is derived from sugar cane. It gently resurfaces and polishes your skin by loosening dead skin cells from the surface levels of your skin.
It is ridiculously easy to use, you pour a small amount on a cotton pad, sweep it over your skin and go to bed. It replaces the need for serums and moisturisers and makes your skin so smooth and look more radiant. I would suggest that if you have sensitive skin, start off by dampening a cotton pad before applying the Liquid Gold onto the pad so it dilutes it slightly. Once your skin is used to the product, you can then use the product neat onto a dry cotton pad.
It is advised that you only use it on alternate nights, I use mine on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so all I do on those nights is double cleanse and apply Liquid Gold and then eye cream. That is it! So easy and the results are brilliant. I find it really does improve my skins texture, it looks and feels smoother and also brightens. The joy of this product is that it’s so easy to use you don’t even really need to think about it, so I love the lazy Liquid Gold nights. It really does pare back your routine so good for use if you feel you don’t have time for exfoliating as it does the work as you sleep.
You may experience a small amount of tingling when you have applied Liquid Gold. I personally love that as I know that it is working as it should be so don’t be alarmed if you do feel the tingle. Tingle is good, burning is bad! You must also wear SPF during the day if you are using glycolic acid.
I haven’t noticed much changing with the pigmentation I have, but I’ve only recently upped my SPF from 30 to 50 so I hoping that that change will help. If you read other reviews, a lot of people have seen extremely good results on their pigmentation so I do hope with stronger SPF and prolonged use this will improve. Despite this I will always carry on using Liquid Gold as I do love the effect and would recommend it for soft, smooth, bright skin.
Do you exfoliate? If so, what kind do you use? Leave me a comment and let me know.
Till next time,
