Alpha H Liquid Gold

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.

    100% agree, I got the same advice from Mrs.H and my skin has improved over the last 6 months amazingly!!! Love me some Alpha-H!

  2. I am waiting for this to arrive, can not wait to try it. I have a lot of acne scarring and hoping this will help. x

  3. Lovely post :) my skin is stabilizing now, after using Bioderma consistently for a few months (thank God!) and now I'm not as worried about it, but if it ever goes back to what it was, I'll be giving this a try!

    I always think spending a bit more money on skin care pays off, and I'm really glad your skin is being kinder to you now! x

  4. Have got it after Ruth Crilly raved about it, I ordered a trial kit actually where the star was Liquid Gold and yes, it's like that you've said: I don't really see my period approaching because my skin stays clear! That's amazing and I'll recommend this product to all my friends struggling with the same problems :)

  5. I´ve never heard of this brand before, thanks for the info! take care,

  6. Great name for it, this sounds amazing, going to recomend it to my friend who has really bad acne and tries everything im sure shell love it :)xx

  7. I don't have acne or any scarring but I might look into this. Thanks for the recommendation! :) x

  8. I use this too, it's lovely. I always wake up feeling like a babys bum lol. Have u used any other things in the range? The balancing cleanser is good - takes off all make-up.

    I used some products from the sk:n clinic which helped for awhile but were really harsh and dried my skin up. I tried to love Liz Earle (like the rest of the 'beauty community' it seems) but I think it's too 'natural' for my skin and it just didn't suit. I also attempted a love affair with elemis but that didn't work out either... !

    I'm glad someone has done a review on this as when I ever mention it to anyone they have never heard of it!

    Take care, Sam x
