Alpha-H are a skincare brand I’ve used a lot of over the years. One of the first skincare brands I ever blogged about loving, still to this day, several years later, I’m a firm fan of the brand. Their Liquid Gold range has gained cult status and as anyone who uses it will tell you – there really is nothing else quite like it on the market. To celebrate the fact that Alpha-H are Brand of The Month at Cult Beauty I wanted to put together the Liquid Gold products that I recommend as the absolute essentials and best place to start if you’ve not yet tried them. It means that you’ll find which products I recommend and love, and at the same time you can pick them up from Cult Beauty with free worldwide shipping too until the end of October when their Alpha-H Brand of The Month ends. (So get shopping before then!)
What makes Alpha-H different?
Harnessed from the desire to create a skincare regime to resurface and ‘cure’ even the most complicated complexions, Alpha-H typically use strong levels of Glycolic Acid in their products to help retexture the epidermis and work to combat adult acne and blemishes. As well as this, their products are designed to work against overactive oily skin and in favour of sensitive skin types too. It’s easy to understand why people all over the world love the brand when you know that.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold
Having started with their cult Liquid Gold product, that’s where my love for Alpha-H began. So it seems only fitting that it’s the first on my list of recommendations. If you try one thing to begin with, it should be this. Because once it’s in your skincare regime, you’ll not look back. This overnight treatment goes on after cleansing and cleaning the skin, and removing all make up. Applied initially bi-nightly (so not to over saturate the skin) this works to lower the skin’s natural pH balance and also remove the part of skin build up that holds debris to the pores. Using this means your skin is clearer and cleaner but also encourages it to naturally accelerate the repairing process. Which means acne, scars, discoloration and uneven tone is all corrected with regular use of this one genius product.
You’ll notice (especially at first) a tingling/stinging sensation when applied. Don’t be alarmed because this is what you want. It shows your skin is working, and the Liquid Gold is doing it’s job. It’s a myth that skincare causing tingling is bad for your skin – it’s actually the opposite as it shows it’s activated and working. All you do is dab this on a cotton pad and wipe over clean skin bi-nightly until skin is fully adjusted and then you can use nightly if you wish. You’ll notice a brighter and more even complexion within a week or so which can be maintained with regular use. You can get the standard 100ml bottle for £33.50 or Cult beauty have a special set with the 100ml and a travel sized 50ml for only £29.99 here. Alternatively try the rose infused, limited edition Rose Gold Travel Set for only £19.95.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream
Once you’ve fallen in love with Liquid Gold, you’ll honestly notice such a difference to your skin that you’ll want to incorporate more of the range into your regime. So next up I recommend the Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream. Replace your normal cleanser with this for a great way of incorporating a more inclusive skincare system. Like any good cleanser it removes dirt and grime as the first skincare step. But this also kick starts the process that the original Liquid Gold fulfills. It starts to resurface skin cells without being abrasive or harsh, almost priming them for the full potency and success of the Liquid Gold treatment. I couldn’t think of a better cleanser to start with in your daily and nightly regime than this.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream
One of the more pricey products in my Alpha-H collection, but one I’ve repurchased multiple times because it’s worth every penny, is the Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream. I’ve been using a lot of eye creams over the past year or so, as I hit 30 and started to notice the fine lines appearing there. Which terrified me into actually treating that area of my face completely separately. Suddenly I needed targeted skincare for my eyes and one of the first eye creams I tried was this one – and I’ve gone back to it multiple times since. Applying the same sort of transformative power to the eye area as the Liquid Gold does to your whole face, this has been a nifty little skincare wand in my collection. Applied under and around the eyes nightly, it’s reduced the depth that the fine lines appear to be under my eyes. The don’t look as puffy or deep, and it’s helped to brighten my usually dull and grey under eye bags. It’s like a hit of energy for the most tired looking part of the face, and it’s given me confidence to know I’m concealing those mini-wrinkles as much as possible. If you’re looking for a high performance eye cream to complete your skincare that’s been derived from an already high performance range of products – then this is the one to tick off your list.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold Ultimate Perfecting Mask
What skincare collection would be complete without a complimenting face mask for regular use? I’ve only recently started using this and I’m as impressed with it as I am with the rest of the range. No surprises there then! I started using this because I have huge pores (which are more like pot holes than pores) but it’s also especially good for ageing or sun damaged skin too. This mask works as a mini-peel type of treatment, like the sort you get when you’re having a facial or peel at the salon. But it’s convenient enough to use at home – which makes it the real winner. Delivering the same potency levels as the original Liquid Gold but in only 10 minutes, this mask is the perfect way to increase skincare pampering and give skin a hit of TLC during colder months or time when skin is more stressed and in need of more attention. What it also does is speeds up that natural cell renewal to reveal that new layer of skin hiding below the dead top layer, so your complexion is instantly brightened. It’s one of few masks that gives results you can measure from the first use as skin will look radiant right away. If you’re looking to combat fine line, large pores or oily skin (like me) then you’re going to LOVE this mask.
Those are my top Alpha-H Liquid Gold picks – and as you’ll see, I can’t say enough good things about the collection. There’s few collections or brands I genuinely adore and don’t have a bad word to say about, but Alpha-H is one of them. I haven’t had bad results from anything in their range. So maximise the worldwide free shipping on all Alpha-H products at Cult Beauty (not just the Liquid Gold range by the way) and stock up, because if there was ever a time to celebrate the brand, it’s now: as Cult Beauty’s Brand of The Month.
