The Skincare #26: Alpha-H Liquid Gold
Saturday, 27 July 2013
Maybe because I'm one for second chances or because I couldn't bear to see it wasted, left there unused, I re-introduced the infamous Alpha-H Liquid Gold into my night-time skincare routine. My first foray with this left me feeling underwhelmed. I stand corrected.
I may be late to the bandwagon but I'm firmly on it now. I think that before I was overloading my skin with products, using this in conjunction with other exfoliating toners during the day. Now I use this glycolic acid based chemical exfoliant twice a week, as the last step in my night-time skincare routine and have definitely seen the results. I still don't think that the results are instant with this and didn't notice a difference the next day after first using this but I have been (re)using this for a month now and my skin is brighter, clearer and old acne scars are noticeably fading.
After cleansing, I soak a cotton pad with the clear liquid and apply it all over my face. I don't apply any products after using this and make sure to wear SPF the next day. It has quite strong chemical scent but it dissipates after a few seconds. I may have been on the fence before but with smoother, clearer skin, I'm definitely driving the bandwagon now.
You can pick this up from Cult Beauty for £31.5o. Have any of you succumbed to the hype?
