Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask

It's certainly not easy to pick a favourite skincare item, but I'm in love with masks. I have been known to even indulge in a tri-fecta mask experience in just a short hour. These concentrated treatments are so pampering, and in my humble opinion, almost always give you the results you want in a short time. 

My very handsome boyfriend got me one of my favourite masks for my birthday (and I'm very glad he did considering the price tag!). The Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask with lavender is a real treat. I use this sparingly and love it more and more every time I use it. I've been using the Alpha-H Liquid Gold (check out my post here) for coming up on a year now and still really enjoy the product. The issue I have with it is that its active ingredient is Glycolic Acid. I love this stuff for its ability to resurface the skin in a gentle way that means waking up to a brighter and smoother face. What also tends to happen with active ingredients, is your skin will get used to them and over time they aren't as effective. I find when I use the Liquid Gold today, I don't even feel a tingling sensation anymore. I wish they offered a stronger product to transition into. The mask, and hero of this post, is that very solution!

A thin layer on a clean face for no more than 10 minutes will leave my skin in the same state it used to after a whole night's application of the original Liquid Gold! I would suggest that those with no history of using Glycolic might want to work their way up to this product, its pretty strong. The product doesn't dry and listen carefully when I say to NOT leave it on longer than the 10 minutes! The result is a beautifully brighter, smoother more polished appearance in a very short time! I love to use this after a clarifying mask like the GlamGlow Mud Mask (You can check out this awesome mask's post here). I pull all those impurities to the surface then exfoliate them with my Liquid Gold Mask!

I highly recommend this stuff and love love love using it before heading out for a night out. I am confident you'll love it too! 

Thanks for Reading!
