So I picked up a set from Alpha-H around Christmas time as a little present from me to me as I’d heard some great things about this Liquid Gold and I’ve really been wanting to up my skincare game. The set was £25 from BeautyBay which including 3 mini sizes of each product, and considering the full size liquid gold is £33.50 I thought it was a really good deal and a great way to try out some new skincare products!
What is Liquid Gold?
The Liquid Gold by Apha-H is a Glycolic acid toner and I have never tried anything like it before. It is made to resurface the skin by tightening pores and going deep within them to remove any spot-causing bacteria and diminish the visibility of acne scares, pigmentation and sun damage. The result being that it gets rid of dull skin and reveales fresh new brighter skin.
What’s the best way to use it?
The best way to use the Liquid Gold is by cleansing your skin and then going straight in with the Liquid Gold and that’s it for the night. I use a cotton pad to apply it all over my face. By just cleansing and then using the Liquid Gold it gives an over night treatment to the skin and there’s nothing to interrupt it doing it’s job! When applying the Liquid Gold for the first few times you are definitely likely to feel a tingling sensation on your skin, I did and I also still do sometimes if I go a little while longer without using it, so that’s nothing to worry about. This toner is also not to be used every night, you can use it 2-4 times a week but not one night after the other. It says on the bottle to use every other night, but I think it’s best to build your skin up to that so it can get used to it first.
My results and thoughts
After building my skin up to using this every other night I have tried to do so ever since. I usually use it every other night and then don’t use it at the weekends to give my skin a little break from the strong solution. I definitely feel like it tightens my pores and gives them a real good clean and helps to reduce the size of spots too. I think what I definitely notice the most is that it really helps to brighten my skin when it’s looking a little dull which I feel like has been a lot lately along with all of the dull wheather we’ve been having in the U.K.! This 50ml bottle, which is half the size of a normal bottle of Liquid Gold has lasted me around 3 and a half months so far and I still have some left for a good few weeks yet so I think I’ll definitely be repurchasing the full size once it’s run out completely. I really enjoy using this Glycolic toner and think it’s definitely worth trying!
