love it! my face feels so smooth in the morning
Okay, finally time to review this cult favorite! I've been using Liquid Gold for over 2 months now. My verdict? My skin has not seen the miraculous results so many people seem to rave about!
I started out using it alternate nights with no other product on (as directed). However, I did not see any change in my skin. So I've been using it every night. I honestly don't see any improvement at all. If anything, my skin seems oilier. I haven't suffered any negative effects otherwise.
My opinion on why this doesn't seem to work on me is that I've used dermatologist prescribed strength AHA before, so this is probably too little for my AHA tolerant skin.
I'll keep on using my bottle of Liquid Gold until I'm out and try the Liquid Gold Rejuvinating Cream next, because I really do want to try finding a good non-prescription strength AHA for frequent use.
I LOVE this product! I had heard so many good things about it so I just had to try it. I was a bit unsure how my skin would react but after the first few times of using it I saw a massive difference. My skin felt plump and glowing after usage. I have had fewer unwanted breakouts and my skin felt much smoother. I understand that it isn't a 'cheap' product but it is worth the money, it lasts so long and you only need to use every other evening. I know everyone has different skin types but would definitely say give it a go!
This product is brilliant. I was afraid I wouldn't react well to it as I have sensitive skin but it turned out my skin loved it. My breakouts are far less now and I don't have dehidrated skin and dry patches any more. I wake up with glowing and even toned skin. Of course not everyone is going to react well or notice a big diference as we all have different skin but I would give it a shot because if it works for you you will love it.
One thing you should be aware of is this works mainly with glycolic acid which makes your skin sensitive to the sun rays on the day you apply it, so you should use a high spf when you apply this and you should use this product mainly in the winter.
I wouldn't live without it anymore, totally changed my skin for the better!
Ah, unfortunately this product wasn't for me. After reading many reviews all over the internet claiming it was their HG product I decided to purchase... and after two weeks my skin was breaking out worse than before, in deep cystic as well as surface pimples, in places I never had breakouts before (my cheeks and jawline). Not just a normal 'purge', it was intense, I think it was an allergic reaction to the product (after testing various products I have now figured out the difference between an initial purge and a reaction). My usual problem area is around the mouth and chin - this also intensified. However... it's been 6 months and my skin is still facing bad breakouts in those 'newer' areas, even though I stopped using AHA Liquid Gold after two weeks... so basically... I went in with hormonal acne and ended up with acne all over my face... all the time instead of monthly... yippee......
So many tears. It's worked for others though so it might be worth the risk... wish I didn't :(
If anyone wants the rest of my bottle I still have it under the sink at home, next to the toilet cleaner!
I have dull skin with hyperpigmentation and after watching/reading amazing reviews about the Alpha-H Liquid Gold I decided to give this a go, even though it's kind of expensive.
I use it every alternative night without using any skincare product afterwards to get the maximum benefit of this product. I noticed that it did sting my skin a little bit but that doesn't bother me much. On top of that I noticed that it has been making my skin really oily. I wake up and my skin is super shiny but that doesn't bother me so much as it seems to be only during the night when I use this product and once I wash my skin it goes back to normal again.
I have been using this product for about 2-3 weeks now and I haven't really noticed that much of a change. Maybe it has made a a little bit of a difference but it's hardly noticeable.
Another thing that bothers me is that this product uses glycolic acid, but it doesn't tell you the % of the acid.
I personally wouldn't buy this product again but maybe someone with more mature skin might benefit from it more. However bear in mind this product is basically just a chemical peel and you can find cheaper ones.
I would recommend checking out skinobsession.com since they have a huge range of different chemical peels.
Alpha H – This is not worth the expensive price tag. I used this at night on its own as recommended to get the best result. It feels and goes on like a toner. I used it with a cotton pad each night. I really wanted to like this and high hopes for it after it has been praised by a Youtube model who mentions it in her videos. I persevered but its been a few months now and my skin doesn’t have any glow or looks or feel any better. If anything, I have small spots appearing on my cheeks and forehead that are not going away. The glycolic makes your skin more susceptible to UV rays. I have a burn on my forehead after the sunshine filled summer we have had. Would I repurchase? – No.
Love love love it! This product really does live up to the hype. My skin is soooooo smooth and radiant. Just brilliant. I actually struggle to see how others could possibly not see any results (from some of the reviews) - it really is amazing! Only thing I haven't really noticed a difference with yet is pigmentation, but I've only been using it for about one month so hopefully ill see results there too.
Genuinely a miracle product- it definitely lives up to its name- both in the sense that its an amazing product, and a bloody expensive one too!if you can afford it- and you're skin does need a bit of a helping hand- buy this!you won't regret it.
I can't say enough good things about the product. Have been using for approx a year now and it's been great. However I did change my cleanser to Cetaphil from Purity cleanser and have suffered very very bad breakouts! Alpha H has helped a little with this as the breakouts are drying out, hopefully as I have switched back to purity my skin will get better faster and Alpha H won't have to be used as much as I'm currently using. I usually use once a week , but with breakouts I've used 3-4 times a week to help clear up skin faster.
