The repurchase: ALPHA A Liquid Gold

Alpha A Liquid Gold

One of the first things I purchased after my spending ban was the Alpha H Liquid Gold with Glycolic Acid (£31.50)This used to be a firm favourite in my skin care routine but when I started using chemical exfoliating toners on a regular basis (like the Pixi Glow Tonic and REN Clarifying Toning Lotion, see thoughts here) I didn't feel it was needed and so never repurchased. However, recently I have noticed my skin has been incredibly sensitive so I have decided to be a bit kinder to it. I have gone back to basics and stopped using these toners daily, instead I use them occasionally when I feel they are needed. To replace them I have been using this secret weapon once or twice a week. It is so easy to apply: I pop it on a cotton wool pad after cleansing, add some eye cream and that is your routine done - quick and extremely effective! You can apply your serum and night cream over the top but I like to use it on its own for a more intensive treatment. 

It is a powerful product that has been compared to an 'overnight facial' as your skin looks brighter, firmer and clearer after use. The Glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliant instead of a physical one, such as a scrub. It works to unblock pores and remove dead skin cells which have accumulated over the day whilst helping to diminish the signs of wrinkles and pigmentation. 

I have definitely noticed the fading of pigmentation that had been left by old blemishes and my skin has been considerably clearer since using it. I absolutely love this product and understand why it is a cult favourite. I just don't understand why it has taken me so long to repurchase it! My only bug bear is that the lid is so large and takes up most of the packaging!
