Alpha-H Liquid Gold

So this year, I'm going a bit wild - this is going to be my second post in as many days.. that has to be a record! I've been wanting to share this beauty with you for a while now - it's the product that's been my saviour for the last month or so.





"This beauty" is the Alpha-H Liquid Gold, and I'm not even sure what product overview you'd put it under - it's a treatment that is put on the skin every other night - or however often you want to use it - and is a glycolic acid based treatment designed to 'refine and firm the skin'. From what I can tell, it has different effects on different people and skin types - so I can't say exactly how it will help, just that it will definitely help.

For me, the main use for it is reducing blemishes, completely obliviating my acne scars, and generally making my skin look glowy and healthy. Firstly, whenever I have a blemish, I use my Origins Super Spot Remover about twice daily and then put this on at night - and normally when I wake up in the morning, the blemish is either completely gone or left much more manageable, (due to the glycolic acid in the formula) - and in a state that means I can put makeup on top of it and it will stay in place. I also have a major problem with acne scars - most of my 'bad skin' isn't actually blemishes, but in fact acne scars that cover both my cheeks. Anyone who has acne scars will tell you how annoying this can be, as it looks like you have many many spots, even if your skin is clear apart from them, and they are close to impossible to cover up for periods of time. However since I've been using this every other night (alternating with my PanOxyl Benzoyl Peroxide cream), my acne scarring has gone down amazingly - my right cheek is almost completely clear and you would not believe the difference! Over the next few months I'm hoping it will clear up entirely, which will be such a massive boost for confidence - and my bank balance, as I'm hoping my makeup consumption will drop dramatically!
You can tell what a difference this makes waking up the morning after using this, skin looks healthier and glowing, and I just adore it!

It's applied onto a cotton pad and is a watery formula, so it doesn't take much to cover the cotton pad - and the packaging isn't much, but that's not something I care madly about as long as the product works.This carries a pretty hefty price tag at £31.50 for 100ml, which put me off for a few months before I finally caved, but the bottle lasts forever - I still have way over half left, and if you used it less than every other day then I'd think this could easily last 6-10 months.
I would especially recommend this to anyone with acne scarring or acne-prone skin, as it makes it much more manageable, and literally does wonders!

  1. I bought this recently to try & get rid of the horrible red marks left from spots on my chin but I've not started using it properly yet. I've heard loads of good stuff about it though & one of my resolutions is to start a proper skincare routine so I'm hoping it'll work just as well for me! xx

  5. Really want to give this a go!:) I know you don't use a moisturiser when you use this but are you still supposed to use a toner after cleansing or not?:) xxx happy new year!

    1. you are actually meant to use the alpha-h moisturiser after you use this at night, or you can go without for a more 'intense' treatment, which I find works fine for my skin - so I don't have to splash out for the moisturiser too! i'm not sure about the toner but i've never really been keen on them anyway, so i'd think you'd be fine without!
      happy new year to you too lovely!
