BEST BEAUTY PRODUCT EVER!
I love Alpha-H's Liquid Gold! This is the best product i have EVER purchased. I generally use it at night after cleansing and instantly feel my skin magically transformed - needless to say how good it feels in the morning! It's perfect for blemishes and acne-proned skin...the little buggers are gone by the morning. I have even converted friends into Liquid Gold lovers! I highly recommend this product to anyone. The only thing I would say is make sure you sunscreen in the morning as it makes you quite sun-sensitive. But it certainly lives up to its name! PS- it works even on very sensitive skin such as mine.

I admit that I am surprised that this product did absolutely nothing for my skin given all the hype and positive reviews not only here but overseas as well. I have given this product two trials of my own and each time have been disappointed. I first tried it a year ago and recently have been using it as per the instructions for two months.
As the owner of the business has stated, it is best to use without any products on top which I have done and woken up to my skin feeling dry. The owner has also said that you should feel like you have been wearing a very expensive night cream overnight. That has not been the case at all for me. I have good skin for my age (mid 50s) and have seen no improvement from using this product.
I think everyone should try it to see for themselves. I can only offer my personal experience.

Cult product! Well deserved.
I am in my mid 40's and hyperpigmentation is one of my main skin care concerns. Sun baking in my teens is now showing up as blotchy dark patches on my face.
After reading lots of blogs and reviews about this cult product I was eager to see if this could work miracles on my skin.
The product is packaged in a plastic bottle with a flip top lid, then a clip on lid as it's outer packaging. The product is quite runny, like water and I apply it by saturating a cotton wool pad, then I apply it to my skin, avoiding my eye area.
After application my skin feels a bit tingly but certainly not uncomfortable. I was at first hesitant about not applying my night time moisturiser afterwards but surprisingly after waking up my skin looked very radiant, bright and not dry or flaky. You do need to wear a high protection sunscreen during the day to prevent further pigmentation issues as the product can increase your skins sensitivity to the sun.
I have been using this product for a couple of months now and I do believe that my pigmentation has lightened somewhat, it has definitely made my pores look more refined and my skin feels so soft and smooth.
I tend to alternate the Alpha H liquid gold with a physical exfoliant every few days to keep my skin in tip top condition.
I do believe that this product deserves it's cult status and lives up to all the hype. A must have product in my beauty kit!

Lives upto it's name!
This product is literally liquid gold. I use it at every other night by itself for maximum effect as per directions on the bottle. At first my skin felt quite dry after application but in the morning you wake up with a glow and it's amazing! No obvious scent to it which is a bonus for me. I received a sample size in one of my orders so gave it to my mother-in-law and now she can't stop using it either.

This product is the real deal
This product is affordable and delivers results. My skin is pigmented due to my pregnancies. Which can leave my skin looking dull and un even.This product makes my skin look absolutely radiant and smooth. One of my pigmented spots on my check, has diminished in colour. I am so happy with the result. Even my hubby has noticed the difference in my skin.

This product does things that I can't really explain how. First of all you don't need any moisturiser - I just cleanse my face and put this on a cotton pad and wipe over my face, neck and decolletage every second night. It sinks into the skin and has a very similar feel to using a toner but my skin feels very moisturised and feels like there is a very thin layer of 'stuff' over my skin.
In the morning when I wake up my skin looks and feels amazing, very well hydrated and has a nice plumpy glow.

Use every second night - this is all you need after cleansing - to get maximum benefits don't use a moisturiser.

Ten out of ten!
Ive read the reviews and finally got round to purchasing this after running out of my old night serum which I loved. I wasnt expecting miracles as my skin has lines, pigmentation, large pores and an uneven texture but I have to say WOW, it really delivers results! Ive been using it every second night for three weeks and my skin has been transformed. My pigmentation is much less visible and my skin just looks and feels younger. It came with the mesh cloths which are recommended to apply it with and they feel like they also give your skin a good old exfoliate too. I wake up in the morning to much smoother, plumper skin. Thank you Alpha H
Read the instructions on how to use first and I would highly recommend buying the mesh cloths as they do make a difference. Also dont apply a night cream over the liquid, it works best on its own.
Ideal for skin showing signs of ageing or anyone unhappy with their current night time serum BUY IT

For anyone and everyone!!
I received a sample of this from Adore Beauty and I've fallen head over heels!! The packaging says to apply moisturiser afterwards but I just use it by itself every second night as an intense treatment, and wow does my skin look great the next day!! Keeping my skin glowing and clear early in my 20's means less upkeep when I get into my 30's!!

This product really deserves the hype it receives!
This is one of the only products to deliver noticeable results, my skin looked brighter, smoother and had a nice glow the next morning.
I use this once a week, as it quite strong due to the amount of glycolic acid. I would use this at the most twice a week.
As directed by Alpha H for best results, I use this after cleansing but don't use any serums or moisturisers afterwards. I was initially worried that my skin would feel tight and uncomfortable without moisturiser, but the Liquid Gold surprisingly provides enough hydration for my skin.
I have fairly sensitive skin but have had no problems using this product, so I would say it is suitable for most skin types.

Leaves skin looking fresh and glowing
Liquid Gold did wonders for my skin! My skin is acne-prone and I purchased this hoping that it would help clear my skin. It did that and more. After using it for the first night, my skin felt so soft the next morning and while it wasn't immediately clearer, it just felt a lot better and looked smoother and more "glowy". I used this in place of the my toner every second night, as the packaging suggests, and I don't apply moisturiser on top except on the few areas of my face which get really dry. But honestly I really don't need to, the liquid gold on its own is surprisingly hydrating. The product felt stingy on my face the first time I used it and I was really worried that I was having an allergic reaction but I was told this reaction is normal. But after a few uses, the stinging reaction becomes less and less.
The only negative is the packaging. The product comes in a bottle which has a lid/cap and then a flip top lid to actually access the product. With the lid, I pour too much product onto my cotton pad. But then again, I always seem to pour just a little too much product with flip top lids, regardless of the product.
