Alpha-H Liquid Gold Glycolic Acid Review

Alpha-H Liquid Gold RRP £29-£33 (100ml)

I’ve been after this product for a while and spent hours reading reviews, ratings and general product detail about what exactly is in this little bottle of ‘gold’. It rocked into the bloggers sphere last year and caused a positive stir amongst beauty fans. But its only recently I’ve began to dig into my pockets and pay a little more for something that may be well worth it and this little beauty was my first pricier purchase.

Alpha H Liquid gold is a silky formula used to resurface the skin and aid the skin in its natural process of renewal. The product is absorbed by cell membranes to aid recovery from sun damage, hyper pigmentation, acne, large pores and fine lines. The result is that is leaves the skin glowing, smoother and a heck of a lot clearer. Hurrah!

The solution contains 5% glycolic acid - a colourless acid chemical found in crops containing natural sugar. It helps to dissolve dead skin cells, tighten pores and aid in the renewal process of the skin.

It’s advised that you remove any traces of makeup before soaking a cotton pad with the product and applying it over the face and neck (at night). Once applied you do feel a slight tingling sensation but nothing uncomfortable. The liquid itself looks similar to a face toner and isn’t scented. You can add your usual nightly moisturiser after this for a less intense treatment or if your skin is in need of a boost don’t applying anything else. This seemed alien to me and I was a little worried it would dry my already combination-dry skin out but I went with it and hoped for the best.

Woah! In the morning I immediately noticed a difference. My skin felt smoother, glowing and my pores had surprisingly shrunk. I also noticed my break outs had calmed but were still visible (god knows why I thought it could work miracles that quickly). After using it every other day for a week it had completely cleared my skin, including blackheads (finally something to shift those pesky buggers) and I found it a lot less harsh than your usual facial exfoliator.

I’m also a pretty inpatient person so anything that can do the job over night is a winner! Id highly recommends getting your hands on this beauty buy if your prone to breakouts and dry skin as it gives a more deeper exfoliating experience overnight without the the usual harshness of having to scrub away with grains and granules. 

It is a little pricer than your usual high street exfoliator but it is 100% worth the beauty hype and the money!

  3. I've been using this for the past two weeks. I suffer from acne anyway so I admit I am taking antibiotics too but really am amazed by this stuff. It's made my skin glow and got rid of all those unsightly pores I had on my cheeks and forehead. Definitely worth the price. Get it!

    1. BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT. There's tons of online stores that have this stuff discounted if your worried about the price tag. But I'd say considering the amount of help this product gives to my skin... Its a bargain! x
