It just works.
The glycolic acid-based chemical exfoliator works to resurface and stimulate new skin cells to diminish the appearance of pigmentation, wrinkles, sun damage. The result?

Personally, I used it when I was 17 years old and suffering from a bout of stress-induced acne three weeks out from my high school formal (thanks a lot HSC). I religiously used Liquid Gold every second day and although my acne scars didn’t magically disappear, the breakouts stopped and my skin was noticeably smoother.

Similar to Liquid Gold, its hero ingredient is glycolic acid – it even has the same five per cent formulation – and you use both products in the exact same way.
