product review - liquid gold

14/03/2013

there are always products you will read on beauty blogs and competely and utterly lust after but because they are pretty pricey you don't know whether they are worth the plunge, especially if the product happened to not work for you. for me alpha-h liquid gold was that product. i'd uhm'd and ah'd at the opportunity of buying it for about six months, even resorting to eBay to try and find a cheap deal eventually my desire to buy it subside. BUT after seeing it featured on carolines blog sparklyvodka last month, seeing that i could get two alpha-h products for the price of just one bottle of liquid gold i knew this was my opportunity to swipe it up, and i honestly have zero regrets. i purchased the alpha-h 2 piece ultimate anti-ageing duo. for £30 i received my full size bottle of liquid gold and a full size bottle of the absolute eye complex, meaning overall i saved £36 based on product value.

so what are my thoughts on liquid gold?  if you do have sensitive skin this won't a suitable product for you to use, however don't let the word acid scare you. the first time you use it expect to have an irritating stinging sensation for approximately ten minutes, if you're anything like me i totally freaked out and had to go on twitter to ask if it was normal as i thought this meant my face was going to blister. no worries it just means that your skin isn't used to this product, the more you use it the more the sensation disappears. as you're only meant to use it on alternative evenings allowing your skin to recover and repair, this has become my skincare product i genuinely look forward to using. the improvements i have seen have been amazing. my only issue with my skin was that i have quite a lot of scarring around my mouth which meant i had to wear a lot of concealer to try and hide them, now one layer of light coverage foundation (yes, light!) covers my face enough to make me look flawless. i'm not saying my skin is perfect because of using this product but it's 100% helped. i will continue to use this product and when it's ran out i will be hastily repurchasing another.

what do you think, is something like liquid gold what you've been looking for?

  1. i have horrible scarring so this would probably be a complete miracle product if i didn't have sensitive skin, ugh! the £30 price tag is too risky! x

  3. This sounds great! I have a bit of an issue with scarring too so it would be good for that for me, but I do have a bit of sensitive skin so I am a bit wary of buying it :/ xo

  4. I have scarring round the mouth too, maybe a cheaper alternative for me would be Bio Oil?

    1. I don't think bio oil is quite the same Megan, I think liquid gold allows the skin to shed a layer and then repair over night x

  6. Wow this sounds great. I have read so many amazing reviews about this product but was scared to try it as it sounded really abrasive. After reading your review I definitely want to give it a go x

    1. It's not abrasive in the slightest, it's just a clear liquid and you simply dampen a cotton pad and apply that to the whole of the face. It's amazing! X
