Alpha-HLiquid Gold A powerful overnight 'serum', Alpha-H's bestselling, multiple award-winning Liquid Gold looks more like a toner - a clear liquid, whose appearance belies its remarkable efficacy. An 'overnight facial', the pioneering formula (it was originally developed in 2000, and was the very first of its kind) is a phenomenal, leave on, 'sleep in' liquid peel, which swiftly (and dramatically) revitalises dulled, ageing skin that's lost its lustre, whilst gradually lessening the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, blackheads, blemishes, pigmentation, scarring and redness. In fact, there's virtually nothing this skin care miracle can't accomplish!

Starring 5% nature-derived glycolic acid (it comes from sugar cane), this overnight treatment harnesses the cell-stimulating and exfoliating properties of alpha hydroxy acids, which melt the 'glue' that binds dulling dead cells to skin's surface, revealing the healthy 'new' skin cells beneath. What's more, by lowering skin's pH (from 5.5 to around 3), this stimulates cellular activity - accelerating repair and renewal processes, as skin works hard to re-establish equilibrium. It bolsters synthesis of elastin and collagen (the 'scaffolding' that keeps skin firm), while penetrating deep within pores to eradicate spot-causing bacteria - while the resurfacing action also helps to diminish visibility of acne scars, dark spots and brown patches, so your complexion quickly looks more even-toned and luminous. A must-have for anyone concerned with skin ageing, sun damage or problem skin conditions - just build up skin's tolerance gradually (to minimise redness). Apply with a dampened cotton pad, once a week for 2-3 weeks while skin acclimatises - then build up to 3 'neat' applications a week, for maximum anti-ageing and skin-brightening benefit.

How to use
Apply to cleansed skin every other night. Moisten the cotton pad with solution and apply evenly over the face, neck and decollete, avoiding your eye and lip area. For an intensive treatment leave on overnight without applying a night cream over the top. Always use a daily sunscreen with an SPF of at least factor 15 when using resurfacing products.
Make Up ArtistA favourite for me & my celebrity clients
I am addicted to this having been recommended it by another makeup artist. I now have an A list client who I introduced this to, who swears she has had no breakouts since using it on her films and is a repeat orderer of this stuff. It's amazing! Just make sure you wear a sun-block with it in the warmer months.
I got this product in an advent calendar and was sceptical of using it as I know little about acids and thought it would be too harsh for my extremely dry, eczema prone, sensitive skin. The first time I used it, it was tingly and nice to use and didn't leave my face feeling tight or dry. I have now been using it every other night for a couple of weeks and my skin has never looked better, my surface flakiness is gone, my skin looks hydrated and glowing. Will 100% repurchase when I finish this bottle.
The original and the best
This caused no irritation or problems at all. Left skin incredibly soft and renewed. I could see a difference after the first use. Nothing not to love about it.
I found this by using the Cult Beauty search-by-concern with all 900 of my skin concerns. I was suspicious at first that one product was going to reduce pore visibility, fade acne scarring, clear blackheads, fade pigmentation, AND be good for dry skin but alas, it's really that amazing. I see such a difference in my skin every morning that I wake up after using this. It's even cleared up all my little skin bumps (you know those little spots that aren't blackheads or acne but are just...texture?). I will definitely be buying the supersize bottle next time.
After searching on blogs on what to do about my acne-prone skin, I kept seeing this product being recommended. The price of the product put me off, despite the amazing reviews. Fortunately, I received this product as a gift (after some not-so-subtle wishlists were left by me). Would completely recommend this product!
I have had a lot of problems with my skin over the past 4 years, coming out of my teenage years I often get pimples on the sides of my cheeks/forehead and have a lot of stubborn acne scars (pigmentation). This product was able to get rid of a lot of the red acne on the sides of my face, however, I did not find that it tackled the scarring.
The main thing that I find amazing about this product is how it has evened out my skin texture. Since I was 13 (before my acne) I have had uneven texture on my forehead, which I can only describe as "under-skin spots". I wouldn't often get whiteheads, but my forehead has been visibly bumpy to a lesser and greater degree for the past 10 years.
After using this product for a couple of weeks I began seeing amazing results: my forehead was so much smoother and I felt so much more confident because of it.
This product is definitely worth the money and the only skin care product that I have tried that I can confidently say has made a difference. Although I don't think it is amazing for tackling active breakouts or scarring, the way it helped my overall complexion and texture was amazing. Definitely would repurchase (with my own money!).
