Hi Lovelies,

Today I am back with a review from Skincare experts Alpha-H famous Liquid Gold Glycolic Acid and a couple of other best sellers that they have curated into their 'With Love' gift set.

The 'With Love' indulgent gift set combines 3 award-winning products. Enriched with potent natural extracts and advanced anti-ageing technologies, each product is designed to leave the skin feeling radiant and looking visibly younger (what I like to hear). Presented in a neat, compact gift box, it’s a beautiful gift for a fellow skincare addict. In fact, check out the limited edition trio cult-favourites X-mas Love Gift Set available from Skincare Store which is another lovely gift set perfect to hide under the Christmas tree this year for a loved one.

The Set Contains:

Liquid Gold (50ml)

Liquid Gold is an award winning concentrated anti-ageing formula expertly designed to resurface skin texture and effectively diminish the appearance of wrinkles, acne scarring, pigmentation and sun damage. Fortified with 5% cosmetic grade Glycolic Acid, the cult-favourite serum works to enhance moisture levels and rejuvenate the surface level with a low pH system. Combined with softening properties of Liquorice Root Extract, it aims to stimulate natural collagen production to visibly reduce the look of fine lines and marks. Complete with Hydrolysed Silk to transform skin overnight and reveal a brighter, younger-looking complexion.

"Perfect for when you're being lazy if I'm totally honest! Its a one step simple to use facial in a bottle!"

Apply Liquid Gold onto cleansed skin each alternate evening. Moisten cotton pad with solution and apply to face, neck and décolletage. When the skin is touch-dry apply your preferred Alpha-H moisturiser or serum. For an intensive treatment do not follow with a moisturiser or serum.

My verdict: 
I have used a few acid toner products before; generally not a fan because they can be very drying on the skin due to the alcohol content (I know the purpose is to firm the skin, but I just do not like that dry and tight feeling) but I must say this is one of the most gentle and effective exfoliants that I've tried. I consider it an overnight facial so I do not use it every night. My skin is not extremely dry, but I do follow with the Essential Hydrating Cream which is divine (more about that below). The 5% glycolic acid content is just enough to resurface the skin although it's certainly not effective at building collagen when compared to a retinol product which I would recommend more so for mature skin. This product in my opinion is definitely aimed at all who are looking to take their skin care regime to the next level and are serious about anti ageing and preventative skincare.

"You should be really looking to invest in a good skincare regime roughly between the age 25 - 28 when the skin is starting to lose its elasticity and fine lines are starting to become visible". 

Essential Hydration Cream (15ml)

Formulated with an aromatic blend of Evening Primrose Oil, Ylang Ylang and Peppermint Minerals, the soothing face cream works to comfort and alleviate tension in dry, irritated skin. Perfect for sensitive and delicate skint types, it provides essential fatty acids and naturally stimulates collagen production to rebuild broken capillaries, diffuse redness and repair damage. With antixoidants and Vitamin E, it’s a nourishing daily treatment to achieve healthier-looking skin.

An aromatic soothing cream which combines essential oils essential fatty acids and seaweed extracts with peptide technology to restore youthful vitality and suppleness to dehydrated and ageing skin.

Non-glycolic formula.

After thoroughly cleansing the skin, apply twice daily to the face, neck and décolletage in upward and outward circular movements.

My verdict:
Its a nice light cream that I have been using daily with and without makeup and my skin is feeling plump and hydrated all day long. It doubles as a primer to create a perfect canvas for smooth makeup application that is radiant  with minimal pores. 5/5 for me! I have just purchased a full size 50ml size for $51.95 to double up as a moisturiser and primer for makeup clients - available here.

Balancing Cleanser (30ml)

A three-in-one cleanser that works to effectively remove makeup whilst correcting skin’s pH balance, filling in the job of a makeup remover, face wash and toner in one. The creamy, soothing milk-like formula is enriched with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera, helping to comfort dry and irritated skin. It repairs and balances natural acid levels without stripping away essential oils, leaving skin feeling clean, firmer and intensely softened.

Apply one pump of cleanser onto a dampened face. Massage over the entire face and remove with a warm damp face cloth. Remember to double cleanse in the evenings.

My verdict:
Extremely lightweight and gentle on the skin. My skin looks glowing and always feels moisturised after using this cleanser due to the Aloe Vera content which smells so nice. Easily another 5/5 from me.

Overall I am extremely happy with the quality of these products and would definitely recommend and try out more from the expanding skincare brand.
Note: The products I have just reviewed do not contain sunscreen and may make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Always use a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least factor 15+.

Full Disclosure: This set was gifted* to me in exchange for an honest unbiased review. I have been trying out these products for 4 full weeks now and will always only ever share my personal genuine reviews and feedback for you all. If I do not like a product, I will simply not review it (no need for my negative opinions on a positive page), although if a product completely did not agree with me causing a reaction after I've already endorsed it by sharing a social post, I will most definitely disclose that information to my followers to prevent it happening to you, thankfully that hasn't happened as of yet.
