I’m 46. I’ve been looking to purchase a quality Brand Product , with AHA / Glycolic acid 10% or higher .
I can’t fault any of the reviews for Alpha’s ‘liquid gold’ on Adorebeauty’s site. Has anyone, around my age group, used this product & the product not really improved their facial skin? I think 10% Glycolic acid, isn’t enough for my skin & I should order a product with approx. 20% Glycolic acid -
( I used to get, in-clinic, professional, regular 60-70% Glycolic acid peels ).
Has any of you, beauties tried both or either- in regard to serums or moisturizers, containing either 10% or 20% Glycolic acid?
Could you tell me your experiences… & perhaps what you would advise, based on your own experience?
My skin often switches from dry to combination skin🙃.
Thank you so much!
I appreciate your assistance XX

My Kind Regards,
Cate

@cate I have heard so many good reviews about Liquid Gold! People rave about it. I haven’t yet tried it to be completely honest though. If you want something stronger I have had success using the Pixi Glow Pads which are 20% Glycolic Acid. The only thing I will say against them is that if you use them too frequently they can be a bit stripping/drying on the skin and I’ve heard that one of the benefits of Liquid Gold is that it hydrates as well. That said, overall I have only had good experiences with the Pixi Glow pads so far.

Hi @Cate turning 52 sooner than I would like! I have been using the Alpha H liquid gold for about 6 months and have really like it. This is my first ‘serious’ glycolic product and I use this around 3 x week, I also use their Sllep mask which has 13% glycolic + retinol twice weekly and have been happy with the results. While this sounds like a lot of acid use I don’t use it in the morning at all and use gentle hydrating products with a little Vit C thrown in a couple of mornings a week to support my skin. The Alpha H Liquid gold product leaves your skin hydrated despite the high alcohol content and I use a niacinamide and HA serum mix under the Sleep mask. Hope that’s helpful.

Pixie Peel pads are amazing. Definitely recommend if you want to resurface.


#5

These look amazing and the price is so much better than the dr dennis gross pads! Def going in my next order!

@lisatarasenko I actually started using the Pixie Glow Pads because I loved Dr Dennis but it was just way too expensive for me!! These are so much more reasonably priced.


#7

That is so awesome i cant wait to put my next order in with these included! Seriously what a win - they are like a quarter of the price of the dr dennis gross ones! @christined

I am 58 and take very good care of my skin but I have never used products with AHA. I have just purchased ASAP daily facial cleanser with AHA and Daily exfoliating facial scrub with AHA and I could not be happier with the results. The 50+ moisturiser is also good. It goes on a bit greasy but settles well and doesn’t effect how my makeup sits

Hey Cate. I’m just about to turn 40 and I’ve been using the Alpha H Liquid Gold for about a year. And I totally love it. It is the perfect middle ground of being gentle but super effective. I have pretty sensitive skin but my face tolerates regular (up to every 2 years) applications of Liquid Gold overnight. Before I tried it, I contacted Alpha H for some advice because my skin can be reactive and they sent me out a few samples! So that might be worth a go before you commit to buying a bottle? Hope this helps!

Sorry meant to say *every 2 nights (not every 2 years)! Ha!
