Hello my girls!
I believe that buying good skin care products is quite a good investment. Because a bare, flawless, radiant skin speaks thousand times better than a face layered with makeup. But sometimes even I get confused when it comes to shopping. What happens with online shopping is that you are spoilt for choice and often end up having so many articles in our cart that we can’t decide. One fine day, during such shopping sprees, I preferred this very much raved about skincare product over all the makeup products that I had added.
The Alpha H Liquid Gold Discovery Collection is an exclusive set containing their most iconic and best selling products.Containing three Liquid Gold products, essential daily cleanser and hydrating cream, this is the ultimate selection of luxury products developed to target specific needs and ideal as a pampering treat for yourself or for those wanting to give the gift of great skin.
The overall package looks very luxurious. The Gold Discovery collection comes in a box with golden graphic print on top and all the items placed on a golden sheet inside the box. A perfect gift for someone special to you. Sadly, I don’t have any picture of that package.
Liquid Gold discovery collection contains following products:
1. Balancing Cleanser with Aloe Vera 30ml,
2. Essential Hydration Cream 30ml,
3. Liquid Gold Perfecting Daywear 15ml,
4. Liquid Gold Intensive Night Repair Serum 15ml,
5. Liquid Gold with Glycolic Acid 50ml.
My Experience with Alpha-H Liquid Gold Discovery Collection:
Balancing Cleanser with Aloe Vera
A gentle cleanser ideal for all skin type. The professional formula works to gently clear away impurities, oil and makeup whilst balancing and lightly hydrating the skin.
Dampen face and apply cleanser. Massage over the entire face and remove with a warm damp face cloth.
The package is pretty simple – a white tube with a big cap. Looks good, but I am bit lazy to keep the white tube clean every time. The Aloe-vera enriched cleanser comes in super creamy, thick and moisturizing formula. The cleanser spread like butter on skin, but a big amount is needed to wipe out the complete makeup. It doesn’t irritate my eyes, so I massage it all over my face, wipe it and wash it off. The cleanser is completely moisturizing and it leaves my skin soft and supple. And yes, it smells good. No more words, I am completely sold with this cleanser and wish to buy the full-sized product soon that costs INR 2289.
4.8/5 + :-* :-*
Essential Hydration Cream
A luxurious, aromatic moisturizer for all skin types. Enriched with Ylang Ylang and Arnica, this cream gives a 24 hour hydrating action and is enriched with Bio-Minerals and Peptides to repair, soothe and revitalize the skin.
After thoroughly cleansing the skin, apply twice daily to the face, neck and decolletage in upward and outward circular movements.
Well, true to its claim, the cream look and feels luxurious. The smell of this cream is like one of those calming creams used in spas (maybe that’s called aromatic). The cream calms down your senses and gives good hydration. The soothing cream doesn’t feel heavy on my skin, but shows a bit of oil sheen if used in excess. The cream works well with all skin types, but 24 hour hydration action is not true. This natural product, works well in all manners – doesn’t break me out, smells good, but I’m not sure if I’d repurchase this as I’d love to find another which works and smells divine. The full size of this cream costs INR 2799.
Liquid Gold Perfecting Daywear
A luxurious anti-ageing serum which enhances the complexion by optically diffusing the appearance of wrinkles and surface imperfections. Offering weightless hydration, a high content of Antioxidants and an illuminating sheer tint, Liquid Gold Perfecting Day wear bridges the boundaries between a cosmetic treatment and mineral make-up.
Apply 2 pumps to freshly cleansed skin each morning. Blend over the face, neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye and lip areas. This serum can be also applied after your moisturizer for additional bronzing and skin lifting benefits.
The Daywear comes in a washed gold toned tube with a golden pump and a protective cap package. The package looks luxurious, but tends to leave its golden paints in hand day by day. And, there is no pipe inside the tube so you have to hold it upside down and pump it 5 to 6 times to release the serum. The consistency is literally like a jelly liquid lotion with white beads in it. Rubbing the serum on your palm or on your face makes the beads to release the color. But I don’t need the bronzed effect all over my face.
The color of the bronzing beads won’t suit our Indian skin and it made me look too dark. It leaves my skin oily and I never want to step out wearing this. I have to wear a good broad spectrum sunscreen whenever I use this serum because of the presence of glycolic acid in it. I haven’t seen any big improvement with this, but still it is packed with a goodness of glycolic acid and many other ingredients, so I changed it as my night serum, just to complete this. This one’s full size costs INR 4808.
Liquid Gold Intensive Night Repair Serum
An advanced overnight treatment serum ideal for mature and sun damaged skin. Enriched with ingredients such as Vitamins A, B3 and E and Sodium Hyaluronate, it will help to reduce age spots and discolouration, soothe redness and rosacea and increase collagen synthesis by up to 119% for firmer, plumper skin.Not to be used during pregnancy.
Apply 2-3 pumps onto fingertips and massage over the face, neck and decolletage, avoiding the eye area. Use an alternate evening to Alpha-H liquid gold.
The package is similar to Liquid Gold Perfecting Daywear and the consistency of the serum is like a gel and golden yellow in color. The gel smells like a grapefruit and the fragrance fades away soon. I love this serum. The serum actually worked and brightened my dull skin. I love to see my bare face in the morning, with a glow. I use it every alternate day and the results are amazing. I wasn’t expecting a miraculous effect in the beginning because of the daywear serum. It works, but takes a little bit of time and continuous usage. I don’t have any wrinkles on my face except my eye contour area. So, I can’t comment on that. I’ve noticed such a big difference in my skin since I’ve been using this in union with the Balancing Cleanser and the Liquid Gold.
Finally, it seriously repairs damaged skin, makes my skin softer, smoother, firmer and gives a glowing and plump skin. It also minimizes the appearance of pores and improves skin’s texture and complexion. Along with this, it works on fine lines and it has reduced some of my acne spots too (seriously, I don’t have many). This serum fits like a glove for me and I generously give full marks for this and I won’t hesitate to buy it again and again and again, only if they reduce the price as right now it costs INR 5129.
5/5 + :-* :-* :-* :-*
Liquid Gold with Glycolic Acid
A powerful overnight resurfacing and firming lotion for normal or combination skin types. Enriched with Silk Proteins and Liquorice extract, it works to jump start the skin’s metabolism, tightens enlarged pores and gives a brighter, clearer complexion. Not suitable for sensitive skin.
Apply Cleansed skin onto cleansed skin each alternate evening . When the skin is touch-dry apply your preferred Alpha-H moisturizer or serum. For an intensive treatment do not follow with moisturizer or serum.
This is the most fabulous product from this kit. I have read some article on the goodness of Glycolic acid on IMBB. No wonder, this serum is a part of that. The perfect blend of Glycolic acid and other goodness give brighter, smoother-looking skin and to improve the appearance of fine lines, revitalize a tired complexion.
This colorless liquid smells like a botanical extract. I experienced a severe tingling sensation on my first day and it become normal on continuous usage. But, after some session, my skin became over sensitive, just like a skin of fragile translucent fruit and become very sensitive to the sun. But, it is said to use a broad spectrum sunscreen of least SPF 15 with it. But that’s not enough for me, and I can’t stand for that. I tend to sweat a lot in summer and some may know the weather conditions in Chennai. So, I discontinued using this, and switched to my regular calming night cream. But I swear, this is a miraculous blend (sorry for sensitive skinned girls) and works overnight. So, I saved this for some special occasions. Worth-every-penny! It is recommended for people with acne, eczema, pores etc.. A real Gold Liquid and I absolutely recommend this even though its full sized version is called 3572.
This kit is totally worth it! Continuous usage of these products work wonder on all skin issues. Only two products are below expectations, but others work for every penny paid. Totally RECOMMENDED!!!
