Triple S: Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask Review

I'm a fan of Alpha-H products (recall from this review of 3 of their products). Their Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask is no exception. Here are my thoughts on this product after having tried it for a few months now.

 Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask

Review: Many praises have been sung for this mask. I had high expectations when I received this products. I desperately wanted it to be the magic bullet for flawless glowing skin. But let's be realistic. No such product exists; and even if it does, it comes in something called Photoshop. However, I am happy to report that this skincare product is worth having in your arsenal. This mask leaves my skin feeling softer and more supple. It helps to dry up any pimples/acne that I have. The glycolic acid takes off all of my dead skin cells, giving me a slightly brighter complexion. My skin also feels fresher and more awake after washing the mask away.

 This product has a very soft and slightly creamy texture. It glides on the skin very easily. However, if you want to skimp like me; use very little product to cover your entire face, you will have to "work the product" until you get an even spread all over. Really, you don't need a lot. And if you get the mask in full size, it will last you a very long time. In the photo below, I have the mask on. It becomes transparent a minute within application. That's why you can't really see the mask on my face. So I guess if you unexpectedly need to answer the door, no one will be able to tell you have product all over your mug!

The first time I apply this mask it stung. It's because of the glycolic acid. But the stinging sensation disappeared after a minute. The "stinging time" lessened as I used this mask more. Now it only stings the tinest bit upon application and is gone within a second or two. This product comes in a convenient squeezable tube and I cannot find any fault with the packaging. Hence the 5 out of 5. So, this mask does not make my skin flawless (no product can instantly remove pimples/scars) but it does make my skin glow. And that's more than good enough for me! 

Have you tried this mask before? What's your go-to product for glowing skin?
