I’ve been waiting to write this for a very long time.
I was filled with lots of hope when I got my hands on some Alpha H Liquid Gold.
I’d heard lots of things about the results and after spending so long with skin problems over the summer I couldn’t resist.
I purchased it asap and followed everyone’s guidelines on using it, cleansed my face and then used a cotton wool pad to apply the solution to the entire of my face before bed without applying moisturiser (just my normal eye cream and lip balm!)
I felt a slight tingle on my face sometimes, but as I expected this to happen I’m not sure if it was my imagination as initially I was worried my skin would react to it.
I have sensitive skin sometimes and as it has been a problem for the past couple of months I was worried it would make it worse.
After my first use, the very next day I saw an improvement.
My spots has shrunk, some of them looked a bit weird like they were yellowy but didn’t feel pussy or painful at all and the swelling had been reduced by a huge extent.
However this effect was short lived.
As I was using it every other day, by the time it came to my next use the spots had come back, and so began a vicious cycle!
Better skin for a day before the spots returned.
The Liquid Gold did help my scarring and this was improved by the use of another product which will be in an upcoming post as I used it on the alternate days I didn’t use the Liquid Gold.
I continued using it this way for a few weeks to see if it got any better but unfortunately all my spots were just the same, if not a little worse.
I decided to try using it every day for a bit to see if this had any better effect.
This luckily didn’t make my skin worse as I was worried that it would dry it out or just generally burn off my skin with that much acid use!
It didn’t make it any better either.
Eventually I have stopped using it as I have used almost all of the bottle without any positive effect on my blemishes and spots.
The skin that is unaffected by my spots (around my nose and forehead) seemed to have a much better look about it.
It seemed more even in tone, my pores looked smaller and there were no blemishes to speak of at all.
It also seemed to have the ‘glowy’ look that makes you look a lot younger and I have been trying to get back for ages!
But I think after all my best efforts that Liquid Gold may not be for me.
I would be willing to try it again when whatever seems to be unbalancing my skin has been sorted out as i think it would improve the overall look of my skin, but unfortunately for me has not solved my skin woes.
I think this may largely be down to reviews on skin care from other blogs.
I know almost all have disclaimer that obviously what works for them may not work for you and that is very true. But a lot of bloggers who review skincare have never had skin problems in the first place to know whether the products work on ridding you of blemishes, which is something that I’ve noticed recently having bought and tried so many products deemed to help that actually haven’t at all.
So just beware, as I’ve spent a LOT of money trying and failing over the past few months.
I have a second part to this post as it’s related to the use of glycolic acid and also ‘should’ feature in everyone’s skin care anyway….
