A new launch from Alpha H is always big news for skincare addicts and this one is especially exciting as it’s an eye cream in the Liquid Gold range – Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream, to be precise.
The signature of the Liquid Gold range is that it uses AHA’s to make real changes to the skin by boosting the skins own hyaluronic acid and collagen production. This, in turn, improves the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, pores and uneven tone. The acid in the original Liquid Gold is glycolic but this would be too strong for the eye area so alternative has been found.
Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream contains Lime Pearl Extract which is a natural source of AHA’s extracted from Caviar Lime, an Australian rainforest plant. As well as increasing cell turnover it will help treat and prevent milia which are commonly found under the eye. This is a huge draw for me as I’m starting to get these annoying little white lumps and was looking for something to address them with.
Also included is a combination of powerful peptides along with other favourites of mine (nicinamide, ferulic acid). These work on static lines (the ones that are still visible when you’re not moving your face), discolouration and firmness. There’s a cool-touch metallic applicator which really does feel very cold and refreshing on the skin. Also, discolouration all round the eye is lessened and brightened by the micron-sized particles of diamond powder that scatter all wavelengths of light.
A couple of other important points are that it can be used morning and evening everyday on the lower and upper eye area and that it has a light, easily absorbed texture. I’ve been using it as directed for a week now and have had no irritation at all. The lightness to it means that I don’t wake up with puffy eyes which happens when I use heavier eye creams but the area is still smooth, hydrated and with softened lines. More improved results are promised with longer term use and these have been demonstrated by the impressive results in an independent clinical trial – more details and images are HERE.
The quickest and most economical way to get your hands on Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream is to get it as part of the Alpha H TSV on QVC who have it as an exclusive. This is the first Alpha H TSV of 2018 and is happening on 10th Feb (this Saturday). Making up the set will be a super sized Liquid Gold with smart new look packaging and a Balancing Cleanser.
Unfortunately, I’ve no info on the pricing but based on past Alpha H TSV’s the savings are going to be MASSIVE. The general QVC TSV page is HERE.
