When the lovely Mrs H from Beauty Mouth answered my plea for advice on some new skincare to help my middle of the road, averagely oily/combination skin about a year ago, by recommending Alpha H Liquid Gold, I had no idea she was going to change my life.
Up until about 3 years ago, my skin had been fine. Not bad, but not great. Then, I had a reaction to some birth-control, I got fat & my skin went mental. I had to stop all hormone treatments entirely, my weight (& moods!!) stabilised, but my skin didn't. It just got worse. Eventually I had a course of treatments at the Sk:n Clinic, which thankfully helped massively. But it never got really good. It was still oily, very spotty around that time of the month and just generally unpredictable.
I started using Alpha H, about 9 months ago (exact time escapes me!) but literally from the first night, the improvement has been measurable. At first, it just seemed my skin was less oily. Then, after a few months, I started to doubt if my period was due because my skin had stayed so clear. Now, the old acne battle scars are fading at a remarkable rate. It is quite incredible.
I can't speak highly enough of this little miracle worker and because I don't want to gush, I'm just going to say; it works. Try it. My skin was still quite sensitive & delicate around my chin when I first started using it & I experienced absolutely no stinging (a little tingle perhaps, but nothing I couldn't handle). My skin around that area has healed to a degree it looks smooth & clear as new born skin. There has been no peeling, like I experienced with other treatments. In fact, my skin feels more moisturised after using it than before and it soothes any red patches that linger after using a face scrub.
It's quite pricey (around £30 for 100ml) but you only use it every second night & a tiny splash is more than enough. 100ml should last approximately 6 weeks. I usually buy mine from HQ Hair, which has free shipping (but can take a few days), but I was lucky enough to scoop a supersize just before Christmas on QVC, which cost around £40 for 200mls. Bargain!
Try it & let me know how you get on.
