This has to be one of my all-time favourite products. It’s a liquid chemical exfoliant made with glycolic acid and how it works is that it dissolves the bonds that are holding dead skin cells onto the surface of the skin, to give you fresher, clearer skin. It will also, with consistent use (that means two or three times a week, max) soften fine lines and pigmentation and because it is an alpha hydroxy acid, it has a hydrating effect on the skin as well. So it’s a brilliant multi-tasker which delivers both immediate and long-term results.

You might think that this was an acid toner but it’s not, it’s much more powerful than that. Liquid Gold is a serious treatment product because it’s an exfoliant and a moisturiser and a toner all in one.

I would suggest using this as a treatment product twice a week, I really wouldn’t use it more than that. When you see the glow it gives, you’ll be tempted to use it more often, but there’s a fine line between getting the benefits of glycolic acid treatment and overdoing it, which stresses the skin and creates inflammation, which isn’t what you want. 

Apply to a clean dry face. Pop some of the product onto cotton wool,  then you wipe it round your face — I would avoid taking it too close to the eyes and the lips — and that’s it. Just leave it be. You don’t need to put a moisturiser on top, because the product has the capacity for moisturising your skin from the inside (also, moisturisers contain water, and putting water on top of this will neutralise the effects of the glycolic acid, so strange as it may seem you get a stronger result from it if you leave it to work on its own.
