You are Gold.

Last week I was lucky enough to receive my first sample from What's in My Handbag. Basically, it's a site you sign up to and request to 'try' product samples, if you are picked the sample is sent out to you. It did take a little while to arrive, and to be honest, I'd forgotten I'd requested, so I was really excited when the parcel arrived. 

I was sent Alpha-H Liquid Gold. I have heard so much about this product and how amazing it is, so I was really thrilled when I got to try it. I will admit I was a little dosey at first cos I didn't realise how 'liquid' it was. I also didn't read the instructions and tried to apply using my fingers... 

Anyway after reading the instructions, I used a cotton wool pad to apply. You literally sweep the liquid over your face on an evening and that's it! 

It doesn't have an overpowering smell, or feel strange one your face which, I was quite pleased with. My face hasn't become dry, but it is a little tighter - which can only be a good thing! I would say my pores have become smaller though, (I have combination skin). I can't say it has improved my skin condition drastically, as you only get a few days worth to try, but it is a very refreshing product. 

I would be tempted to invest in a bigger bottle, or at least another sample to try for a little longer, before I splurge. Liquid Gold is priced at around £30 for 100ml, I'd say this is about what I would expect to pay, it's not a 'high street' brand but then doesn't seem hugely overpriced either.

Have you tried liquid gold? What did you think?
