Alpha-H Liquid Gold Intensive Night Repair Serum - review


I must have been using this serum for close to a year now, it's just that I've used it on and off during that time so it's only now that I'm ready to review it.

This time around I've used it on alternate evenings for the last three months, and I'm pleased to say that I do really like it and it works for my skin. Nevertheless I wouldn't buy it again, for the simple reason that it's expensive and Alpha-H's Liquid Gold (reviewed here) does the same kind of things as this serum does, only better and for a cheaper price. More on that below.

Alpha-H claims/product details:

  • A high-performance, nighttime anti-wrinkle serum that's specifically designed for peri and post-menopausal skin 
  • Features a combination of powerful age-fighting ingredients to plump, firm and sculpt your complexion
  • Repairs, restructures and regenerates mature, ageing skin
  • Minimises open pores, acne scarring, pigmentation and age spots
  • Plumps fine lines and wrinkles
  • Contains antioxidants that fight free radicals, fighting further cellular damage
  • Lightens pigmentation and inhibits melanin production to reduce further discolouration
  • Skintone becomes visibly brighter, clearer and more radiant
  • RRP $99 AUD for 50ml, but do shop around


This is a good product and it does work well for me, it's just that it's not as effective as Alpha-H's Liquid Gold so I would choose that over this - plus Liquid Gold is cheaper so I'll be sticking with that for now.

It's a thick, orange-yellow coloured gel with a slightly sticky texture and it spreads, applies and absorbs well. Do note, though, that I need to use quite a lot per application (four pumps) and I'm glad it comes in a 50ml bottle - otherwise I would get through it too quickly.

You apply it on alternate evenings to Liquid Gold, and that's what I was doing for ages - until the last three months, when I decided to use this on its own and see how it went without the assistance of Liquid Gold.

I'm pleased to report that it's held up well on its own, and I haven't noticed removing Liquid Gold from circulation too much - although that product is definitely better at resurfacing my skin and also making it look brighter and smoother, so that's something to keep in mind.

What this product does is help with skin clarity (so I have less breakouts these days) and it also brightens the skin. Yes it does sometimes sting a little on application, but that's usually after I've done an exfoliating treatment first and the stinging dies down very quickly so it doesn't bother me. It's a good sign that the product is working, anyway.

On the claims: yes this firms the complexion a little but I don't think it's plumping; yes it makes the skin look regenerated and refreshed, but I don't think it repairs or restructures the skin; yes it has helped minimise acne scarring but it hasn't done anything for my open pores or pigmentation; and no I don't think it's done much for fine lines and wrinkles, although it does smooth the skin a little so it does do something towards skin texture.

Overall I think this is a good product but it's not Alpha-H's best in my opinion, and I wouldn't buy it again. Still, it's worth trying because it does help make my skin look and feel more youthful, although I would absolutely wait for specials because it isn't cheap.

Good, but not my favourite from Alpha-H.
