I Tried Alpha-H Liquid Gold Essentials


Hello, hello my beauties, welcome back to myglojourney or welcome if you are new around, I Tried Alpha-H Liquid Gold Essentials, and today I'm having a mini review on three of their most beloved products


I tried three of Alpha-H Liquid Gold essentials: the Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream, the Multivitamin Super Cream, and the  Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask.
If you are not familiar with Alpha-H, they are by now leaders in at home exfoliation, resurfacing and skin renewal and cult brand. Their goal is to achieve clinical results with minimal effort and zero downtime, and I'm here for it. All Alpha-H products are cruelty-free and made in Australia, is a woman-owned business.  In the skincare community Alpha-H Liquid Gold is legendary already, and so is the vitamin collection, and you can imagine I could not pass the opportunity to try few of their products myself and see if they live up to the hype or no.


This is a long post, so please feel free to jump to the one that interests you the most!



Alpha-H Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream



What is it
Cream cleanser

Who is it for
Dry, normal, acne-prone and mature skins

Claims
Ideal for more mature skin thanks to its ability to penetrate deep into the skin and boost anti-aging and cellular regeneration, this next generation cleanser can be used either as your sole cleanser or as a second cleanse.

Naturally exfoliating Lime Pearl™ Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) from the native Australian caviar lime stimulate the elimination of dryness and flakiness from the outermost layer of the skin. This also triggers cellular renewal, leading to smoother, brighter and plumper skin.


How do you use it?
Apply a small amount and massage over dry skin, avoiding the immediate eye area. Add a few drops of warm water to create a rich, creamy emulsion. Continue to massage into the skin, then rinse off with plenty of warm water, or with a warm, damp face cloth.
Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream can be used either alone, or as a second cleanse after your regular Alpha-H cleanser.

How much do you get
100ml

Retail price
€39.99

Can be used around eyes?
No, don't do it! I tried, and It stings! Badly

What did I like about?
Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream comes in a tube that is both handy in use and absolutely gorgeous looking. I love products that score these two, give the feeling and the appearance of luxe while being convenient easy to travel with and hygienic.
The cleanser itself is a thick, luxurious creamy texture, very lightly scented and a little goes a long way, you get a lot of use from a 100 ml tube.
Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream is meant to be a gently exfoliating cleanser, the glycolic and lactic acids will resurface skin cells without being abrasive or harsh, cleansing and priming the skin a the same time for the rest of the skincare routine.

What I didn’t like about
Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream is a second cleanse cleanser! It won't remove makeup or sunscreen. If you are the kind of person who likes to have only one cleanser, this one is not for you.
Besides that, I found the formula to be a bit too harsh on my skin. I'm used with acids giving me a bit of a tingle, but this one stings quite bad, which makes me think that if you are sensitive, over-exfoliated or you are using prescription retinol stay away from this one; due to the glycolic and lactic acid combination Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream can cause irritation.

My experience with it
I did use this cleanser on and off for a few months, and on the days I could use it it was lovely it did not dry my skin, I felt a bit plumper, yes, but it did nothing extraordinary. nothing to write home about
Most of the days I couldn't even use it because it will sting so bad that I couldn't handle it. I know that probably comes from my skin being a bit sensitive because of the prescription retinol I'm using. If I wouldn't use retinol it was okay, but I was not willing to give up my retinol more than few weeks, and that for the seek of testing. So, sorry to report that long-term Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream wasn't a good fit for me.

Would I repurchase?
No, I prefer gentler balm cleansers.

What did I like about?
Beautiful packaging and comes with a pump! YASSS!
When I got the pr packaging from Alpha-H it came with the products presentation and the more I was reading, the more I was falling in love with this moisturizer! And it did not disappoint, award winner Alpha-H Multivitamin Super Cream is packed with retinol, niacinamide, vitamin c, vitamin e, and more. This beauty is a cocktail of actives that revitalizes dull skin like no one else. 

What I didn’t like about
I was unable to find anything that I don't like about Alpha-H Multivitamin Super Cream. However I did had an issue with the jar my pump did not work, so I ended up opening the jar. Might be just the one I have, no biggie.


My experience with it
I went through a full size of Alpha-H Multivitamin Super Cream, and it was love to the last scoop. Gorgeous moisturizer absorbs into the skin almost immediately, leave the skin glowy, plump and a lot more fresh looking. Behaves impeccably under makeup.

What did I like about?

Alpha-H Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask is an at home mini peel, and it works miracles. However you need to build resistance to it so at the beginning you may not be able to leave it on for 10 minutes, I know I wasn't able, and im used with strong acids. But once you get there  be prepared for the most beautiful  radiant self

What I didn’t like about
I was unable to find anything that I dislike about this mask. Again, you may need time to build up to the 10 minutes  but is working


My experience with it
Alpha-H Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask is one of my most precious possessions on the skin care shelf! I do not use it very often because I'm using retinol and I test a lot of products but boy oh boy when I use it my skin looks fantastic.  Dinner date .. Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask, a party where I have to look ravishing .. Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask, this mask is the immediate answer to all my skin problems 


Would I repurchase?

Yes


I got these products sent to me by Alpha-H Netherlands for an Instagram review back in September, at the time I was caught in my house renovations, and I only did a first impressions &unboxing . So with four months delay here it is my review on them, I hope you enjoy it.
Have you tried anything from Alpha-H? What are your favorites from the brand?
