Brightening Up Your Skin For Christmas With Alpha-H's Liquid Gold Holiday Duo

I love a good exfoliating treatment and I prefer using a chemical exfoliator over a physical gritty exfoliator as I think they can be quite aggressive at times. I know that the Alpha-H Liquid Gold is an old fave of many beauty bloggers and youtubers but I've just never got around to trying it for myself. But that changed recently... I got the opportunity to try out and review the Alpha-H Holiday Duo Gift Set RRP £38.50* which contains both the awarding-winning original Liquid Gold (100ml)* and the limited edition Liquid Gold Rose (100ml)* so I'm going to talk about how I've got on with both in this post.

The original award-winning Liquid Gold* has a multi-action formula of silk protein and liquorice. It targets aging skin and helps to renew tired and sun-damaged complexion whilst improving the skin texture and tone. It's also clinically proven to decrease wrinkle depth, reduce roughness and increase moisture within the skin. They recommend you to use it every other night but on my temperamental skin which errs on the side of being sensitive, I think that would be too much for my skin personally. So I've been using it once or twice per week. So far I've got to say, I've been really impressed by Alpha-H's Liquid Gold and I definitely get the hype. I mostly use Pixi's Glow Tonic as my go-to chemical exfoliator but as I've said before, I'm not super keen on the scent and I think it smells kind of like an old lady's perfume ~sorry Pixi~ but it is a great product. With Liquid Gold I can tell I've used a resurfacing product the day after I've used it and by that I mean my skin looks fresher and it also feels super soft. So I do think I will be switching to Liquid Gold once I've used up my big bottle of Glow Tonic. 

 The Liquid Gold Rose* offers more of a hydrating exfoliating treatment, it contains aromatic botanicals and moisture-binding ingredients as well as the classic Liquid Gold formula. You can probably guess what Liquid Gold Rose smells like already but it definitely has an Aromatherapy Rose scent over your bog-standard English Rose scent. I really like the scent of the Rose version, it almost makes you feel like you're in a spa having a facial. I'm a bit gutted it's a limited edition addition because I love the scent so much. It works in the same way as Liquid Gold and makes my skin look brighter and fresher the next day after using it and it makes your skin feel super soft.

You can pick up the Liquid Gold Holiday Duo RRP £38.50* from M&S Beauty, whether it be a treat to yourself or a gift for someone else. Also, just a little reminder/warning if you do use a chemical exfoliator or are planning to then remember to use SPF (if you don't already) as it can make your skin more sensitive.
