L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser Renew Peeling Lotion Night, £24.99 (currently£16.66 on offer)
This is like a emulsion/toner, and if you know the purpose of Alpha H Liquid Gold then you will be pleased to hear this is like a drugstore version of the cult favourite. It isn’t much cheaper, but seen as it will be stocked in boots makes it more readily available, and boots always have those offers that suck us in. I think this is not as strong – 3% glycolic acid – as Liquid gold as it doesn’t sting on application at all, so perfect for me as my skin could not tolerate Liquid Gold without a reaction or irritation bumps (luckily I had a sample to try).
How I apply this: Soak a cotton round and sweep on cleansed dry face, being careful not to rub. 2-3 times a week. I have no idea if it is ok to apply anything after this, but I have had great results with this alone on my skin overnight. My skin does not feel uncomfortable or dry, but like I have applied a thin layer of mask. This makes my skin glow in the morning, dark marks from breakouts are fading quicker after I started using this and dry patches have now been cleared – yay! *Important: Use a high SPF containing product in the daytime, I use a Neutrogena Sheer touch SPF70 under makeup or Avene SPF30 which I reapply after 2-3 hours if I am out all day.
The bottle design is perfect, the bottle can be squeezed to dispense product on to a cotton round with ease without spilling or over dispensing. The feel of the liquid is slightly slippery, so it is very easy to apply smoothly.
