A friend of mine recommended ‘Alpha-H Liquid Gold’ to me as a more natural alternative to Obagi skincare, which tends to be quite chemical based. I have to admit Obagi has helped my skin, but it’s time for a change. With all the research I’m doing into Cancer and the Immune System, I’m increasingly worried about the ingredients in the products I put on my skin. So much so that I have even starting making Homemade body butters!
The friend who recommended ‘Liquid Gold’ has a very sensitive skin and struggles to find products she doesn’t react to. On the same hand she can suffer with breakouts. Since using Liquid Gold she’s had no new breakouts, her skin is glowing to the point that her partner commented…something he never usually does! Since she is a beauty junkie like me I took her word for it and ordered a trial set from Cult Beauty.
My Kit contained;
30ml Liquid Gold Skin Renewal Wash
15ml Liquid Gold Skin Perfecting Daywear
50ml Liquid Gold
30ml Liquid Gold Rejuvenating Cream
30ml Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask
The First Night of Use
I used the face wash which you rub into dry skin and then add a little water until it becomes silky. After this I applied the soothing and perfecting mask which contains Lavender and left on for 10 minutes. Next it was time for the Liquid Gold, which you dampen a cotton pad with and wipe over the face and décolletage. If you want an intensive treatment the instructions say not to apply moisturiser – I didn’t notice that bit at the time, so I applied Liquid Gold rejuvenating Cream afterwards. The correct procedure is to apply liquid gold on alternate nights and Liquid Gold rejuvenating cream on the other nights.
After the first night of use my skin seems less botchy and the cluster of spots I have at the moment are a lot less angry and feel as if they are going down – they are those red, under the skin lumps which haven’t come to a head – for me this is as a result of eating dairy! At this rate they will be gone in a few days…in time for the weekend!! 🙂
This morning I used the face wash and then the Liquid Gold Perfecting Day Wear. Over this I applied an Obagi moisturiser and then Obagi SPF 50 sunscreen. It is important to use a sunscreen with Liquid Gold because they contain Alpha Hydroxy Acids which make the skin more sensitive to sunlight.
There is a slight tingling with these products but nothing uncomfortable – and if my friend can use Liquid Gold with her super sensitive skin I’m sure most people can! Since I’m only on day 2, I will make a new post in a couple of weeks time with some photos and my progress.
