The Weekend Post #29: New Skincare

One thing that never fails to make me smile like a noob into my laptop screen is the lovely comments that you guys leave. Quite a few of you complimented my skin in my latest video, and although I have to admit that I was very well rested when I filmed it, not to mention still rocking a slight holiday tan which may have contributed – my skin hasn’t been looking too bad recently. Some of you asked if I’m trying anything new skincare-wise and as a matter of a fact I am. A few of the products I’ve been using for the past month or two and some just for the past week, but I thought I would film a video anyway so I could chat away about them – any excuse to talk about my favourite topic.

Out of everything that I mention the Alpha H Liquid Gold* has to be my favourite so far. It’s a glycolic acid treatment that you apply to your face after cleansing every second night, and leave on it’s own, no moisturiser on top or any of that jazz, to work it’s magic. The potion works to smooth out the skin surface, refine your skintone and firm the skin. Quite honestly, I’m amazed – it does all of the above and more. Although I’ve only been using it for a month, so I don’t want to get all ravey about it just yet (probably a bit too late for that), but it’s definitely a product to keep an eye on and I will update you in a while with my final thoughts. For the rest of the bits I’ve been testing out check out the video above which has all the extra info and links. Hope you like it! Have any of you tried anything from Alpha H or Emma Hardie? Testing out any new skincare bits recently too?
