Alpha H Liquid Gold with Glycolic Acid.

This is another product I’ve had on my wishlist for some time, it has had mixed reviews so I didn’t rush in to buy it, but after a lot of thought, I decided to purchase and add it to my skincare routine. I’ve heard great reviews about this product, Ruth and Meg (who both have perfect skin!) are big fans and it aims to improve everything I have issues with (large pores, blemishes, scarring, overall complexion etc.)

Liquid Gold is a powerful overnight treatment which contains Glycolic Acid (exfoliates and brightens), Licorice Extract (soothes and reduces dark spots & pigmentation) and Silk Proteins (smoothing). It aims to firm and resurface the skin, leaving it looking clearer and more even, whilst also helping with enlarged pores, blemishes and scarring.

My skin isn’t great, the normal/combination (slightly oily) skin type means I’m prone to blemishes which leave scars and my overall complexion could be better.
I use Liquid Gold every second night, I apply it to a cotton pad and sweep it over my face after cleansing. I aim to leave it at that as these treatments are meant to work better neat, but I find moisturiser is needed as it’s quite drying!

Now, the results. I’ve been using this for roughly a month and noticed my complexion looking better from the first application. My pores looked less noticeable and my overall skin tone looked more even and brighter. I also get fewer blemishes now and they clear up quicker, and the scarring seems to have improved.

I’m definitely going to keep at this, my skin has seen a huge difference and looks and feels a lot smoother and even. I’d recommend this for all skin types, especially for those who have dull or uneven skin tones or are prone to blemishes/scarring.
It’s slightly on the pricey side but it’s definitely worth it and you only need to use a small amount to notice a big difference.

What are your thoughts on Liquid Gold?

  • Wish I could afford this. I’ll keep it in mind though, if it works so well. x

  • I got this last week, only used it 3 times but there’s a noticeable difference already! So worth the money.x

  • I have a few acne scars and have been looking for something to help out with those, so might give this a go! x

  • I’ve never heard of this product before but I’ve got terribly red skin so I’d be pretty interested to see how it would affect that. Might have to look into it a little more. hmmm, interesting.

  • Think I’ll pop this one on my wish list!!

  • I’m obsessed with this! Oddly, on the first run of using it I didn’t really see much of a difference and stopped for a month or so, then on the second run I noticed a difference within a few uses! Crazy.

  • bookmarking this! my skins been breaking out like mad and i still have scarring from my lovely acne filled years, so this looks like an all round good product! 🙂

  • Love your reviews, I have the same problem with blemishes and scaring, i think i may have to give this product a go.

  • Ah I have been using this for a few weeks now. I am still on the fence with it so am going to persevere for a few more weeks prior to airing my final thoughts in a review however having said that I have noticed a dramatic reduce in breakouts so far which can only be a good thing!

  • Sounds like a good product, think I’d be scared of using it and my skin reacting badly since it’s quite strong x

  • This sounds like such a good product! But its so expensive and if my skin broke out from using this it’d be so disappointing xxx

  • I have the same problems with blemishes and feel my skin looks quite dull lately so will be adding this to my wishlist!

  • Wow this sounds perfect for my skin! Out of my price range unfortunately – maybe one day eh?!

  • I have been wanting to try this for a while and the sale price might have just swayed me. I absolutely love your skincare posts as we seem to have a similar skin type, you have helped me discover some amazing products to add to my routine!

  • really liking the sound of this!

  • I started using this about a month ago as well and it has made a huge difference to my skin!


  • I’ve heard such great things about this stuff and I’m thinking I need to get my hands on some. I’m currently using Proactiv so I wonder if I can incorporate this into my routine!


  • Being a teenager, I have pretty bad skin!:p But this sounds like it could help so I’ll give it a go as your reviews always seem to be pretty accurate! Fiona 🙂 x

  • this seems to be a good product, thats what ive heard anyway xx

  • heard loads of good things about this product, but it contains a lot of alcohol that puts me off 🙁

  • Can u link where I can buy this from please xx

  • I’ve also had my eye on this but concerned about the drying effect as I have super thirsty skin! Do you find it works as well with moisturiser on top? x

  • I have all of those skin problems too! Great review – one to think about!

  • HSK

    I’ve read a ton about this product but it has gotten some mixed reviews about the ingredients. However, as the positive reviews are considerable greater in number, plus yours :), I definitely going to have to give it a go and see if it does anything for my hyper-pigmentation.

  • Boo

    Just gave in and bought this now Ive been paid! your skin sounds just like mine so I’ve got my fingers crossed as Ive heard only good things!

  • what makeup do you use? Seriously, I swore by this awesome skin regimen and I still broke out. The makeup makes a difference! I just use this stuff for powder and foundation and it’s made a huge difference.

    I know, nobody’s ever heard of it and it’s impossible to find reviews for it, but I got it from my esthetician at a spa by my house and it’s seriously made such a difference. Enjoy!

    Love your blog. xoxo

  • Been using this for a couple of months now and its made a huge difference to my acne scarring! Can’t live without it now!

  • i would have bought it but the price is too frightening!

  • I was just wondering if you think that this product is appropriate to use for a teenager. It seems like an amazing product, but I’m worried that it will be too harsh for my young skin. Thoughts?
