Something that’s talked about with growing frequency amongst skincare addicts is whether one should be sticking to the same routine week in week out or switching things around. My view is that switching things around is good but as long as you keep to a variation on a theme. What I mean by this is that you stick to the same set of proven ingredients (retinols, AHA’s, vitamins/antioxidants) but you play around with different concentrations and formulas.
This why the I’m very excited that Alpha H are launching two new Glycolic Acid products – Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask and Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream. They can be used in addition to the products you already use as a way of progressing the results of your skincare routine. One way they’ll do this is that the products you apply after using them will be more effective as they’ll be able be to penetrate more deeply.
Before going into detail on each of the products I want to dispel the myth that Glycolic Acid and other AHAs ‘thins the skin’. AHA’s eliminate the outer dead skin cells but actually thickens the living epidermal layer and encourages production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. It’s the accumulation of dead cells on the surface that can make skin look dull and getting rid of them gives skin the glow that Liquid Gold products are famous for achieving.
The Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream
This is can be used 3 times a week (avoiding the eye area). It contains CHA (combination hydroxy acids) to break down the bonds of the dead cells and leave skin looking bright and fresh. It also contains Shea Butter and Hyaluronic Acid to keep skin soft and smooth. It makes skin look clean and glowy but the high lipid content ensures it doesn’t feel stripped, dry or tight.
Liquid Gold Perfecting Mask
This is my favourite of the two products. In fact, it’s my favourite new skincare product of 2018 so far and I really can’t recommend it enough. It overs a legitamite and affordable alternative to a more invasive in salon peel. It contains 20% CHA’s with the pH of less than 4. The strong strength of the CHAs is negated by a host of moisturising and anti-inflammatory ingredients. This means you get amazing results without traumatising the skin i.e. no redness or sensitivity. This mask can be used once a week for 10 mins.
The Liquid Gold Cleansing Cream will be £36 for 100ml and the Liquid Gold Perfecting Mask will be £45 for 50ml.
However, QVC will be launching both products as part of a mega deal TSV. The Alpha H TSV Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Collection contains:
Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream, 200ml supersize
Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask, 50ml
Liquid Gold 24 Hour Moisture Repair Cream, 50ml
The price for all three products is £41.98. So, for less than the price of the Perfecting Mask you get that and a double size of the new Resurfacing Cleansing Cream and the Moisture Repair Cream. Even though I’ve got already got all the products I’ll be buying this TSV as I know I’m going to want to replace them and the savings are to good to pass on.
The deal goes officially live on QVC at midnight 29th April for 24hrs but you can order it via THIS LINK NOW!
