Alpha-H welcomes Bart Kaczanowicz from 'inhautepursuit' as our guest blogger. Read on for a rundown on the 'powerhouse formula' that is the Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask.
When I started inhautepursuit.com last March, the idea was to share my excitement for tried favourites as well as the latest finds. So far, first hand interaction with brands, agencies, and other bloggers while discovering my voice have made for a pretty sound beauty sleep.
It is now both thrilling and humbling to guest blog for the phenomenal ALPHA-H brand with my impressions of yet another powerhouse formula: the Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask with Lavender.
My philosophy on face masks is simple: one can never have too many. With an abundance of product at every turn, it is key to know your skin and its needs. Luckily, all of us can benefit from Glycolic Acid, the critical ingredient present in notable concentrations. The Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask packs a powerful 15% of this active ingredient, which makes it one of the strongest ones out there. In just 10 minutes, Liquid Gold mask delivers gentle yet ultra effective exfoliation with a substantial dose of moisture.
In addition to its soothing lavender scent, I absolutely love that this luxurious cream formula with a clay base that dries but doesn’t crumble. Nourishing Manuka Honey softens and hydrates while Rose, Macadamia and Wheatgerm oils condition and protect. Who would have thought that sugar (natural source of glycolic acid) would give me a glow within minutes?
When do I use it? During every emergency and before every special occasion. It works wonders on those very rare mornings on which I wake up wearing the previous day’s ensemble. A thin layer rinses off leaving my face softened and radiant with noticeably tighter pores. I live by the words of ALPHA-H founder, Michelle Doherty, who says, “tingling isn’t a reaction, it’s an indication that finally you’re putting something on your skin that’s about to work - welcome it”. Preach!
As with every brand that is new to me, I always suggest trying out the mask first - it’s the perfect skincare experience for those afraid to commit.
