When I first read all the positive reviews, I thought the product sounded too good to be true.
However, as I have been struggling with my skin since early teenage years (I'm 30 now), I thought I would try this one more product. I battled with really bad acne and oily/combination and sensitive skin all at once. I tried every single antibiotic for acne, spent a fortune on all kinds of expensive skin care, was put on a pill and even did a course a medication. The last one worked - for a few months and brought a lot of side effects. I have almost given up on trying, stopped all the medication a few years ago as was fed up taking antibiotics for over ten years and decided I would just live a healthy lifestyle and wear good make up to deal with my skin.
Somehow though, all the reviews tempted me to have a go and so I purchased the small bottle. No tingling feeling after application or immediate effect as some say but I persevered. Have been using the product for about month and a half now and am finally seeing the difference (didn't want to rush to write the review). There is still a huge room for improvement with my skin's condition. However, the texture of my complexion has improved dramatically, it feels really smooth with just a few random bumps as opposed to oily in T zone, rough on the sides and full of breakouts and huge clogged pores. I even went to work yesterday without makeup other than a few dabs of concealer where I still have some discolouration from old stubborn spots. I was on holiday for the last two weeks and not worn any makeup so this might have helped a bit as well but I was starting to see the difference even before the holiday.
I am using the Liquid Gold religiously now, every other night without a moisturiser as recommended. I have reduced the amount of moisturiser I use altogether as my skin feels a lot softer and comfortable.
As I said, still a long way to go, some pores are still enlarged, some redness and pigmentation issues due to old spots and scars, occasional pimples. But comparing to how bad my skin was, it feels amazing and I have confidence not to wear any makeup now! Never thought this would happen.
Furthermore, I have now encouraged my partner to start using the product (sharing is caring), as he suffers from bad razor bumps and ingrown hair with occasional pimples on his face. His skin is also slowly starting to improve.
I genuinely recommend this product to people alike and will be purchasing a big bottle now. Or ten.
