Restore your skin’s elasticity and brilliance using this intensive collagen accelerator.
- Contains very high levels of retinol that accelerate skin cell turnover and boost collagen production.
- Liquid Gold acts as a booster to your current skincare regimen with use 1-2 times per week only.
- This serum is NOT meant for daily use and should only be used once you are stabilized on a nightly retinol product.
- Not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Liquid Gold earned it’s name after my first go with it. I couldn’t believe how soft, smooth and refined my skin looked the next morning.
Once you are stabilized on a nightly retinol, use Liquid Gold 1-2 times per week at night only (separated by 3 days or so). After cleansing and drying your face, use a thin layer of X5 OR a misting spray of Balancing Toner to promote better penetration of the Liquid Gold. While face is still moist, apply approximately 1 dropper full to cover the face. Do not put anything on top. Think of it like a mask that stays on all night. In the morning, be sure to cleanse your face.
Depending on how your skin responds, you may want to have 1-2 nights of moisturizer only following Liquid Gold use (i.e. no retinol those nights). VitaMoist is my moisturizer of choice here.

Use Liquid Gold to give yourself a skin-smoothing, pigment-fading DIY at home chemical peel similar to that of a light to medium-depth professional grade chemical peel. Theoretically, regular nightly use of a retinol, like Perfect Change Serum, is like giving your skin mini peels over and over. However, you’re using it in a way to keep dryness to a minimum so you can tolerate it daily and reap all the benefits.
By using Liquid Gold two nights in a row, you can achieve the results of a professional grade chemical peel for brighter, smoother, and more even-toned skin, not to mention the huge collagen boost which is a miracle for aging skin.
Here’s how it would look:
- Night 1: Liquid Gold
- Night 2: Liquid Gold
- Night 3: Moisturizer
- Night 4: Moisturizer
- Night 5: Moisturizer
- Night 6: Moisturizer
- Night 7: Moisturizer
- Night 8: Return to nightly retinol product if skin is done peeling.
Typically, peeling will begin 2 days after your 2nd night of Liquid Gold. Until then, skin will feel very dry and tight. By day 7 or 8, most of the visible peeling will be gone and you will see the new healthier skin revealed. Keep your lineup to a minimum during this time with just a gentle cleanser, moisturizer and of course SPF. If you still have some light flaking past this time, use a chemical exfoliating wash or serum, like Active Cleanse or X5, to help promote removal of visible dead skin cells.
You can perform this DIY chemical peel using Liquid Gold every 6 weeks or so as needed. The best part is you get to choose when you do it.
A note about SPF: it should be worn every day no matter what, even if you work inside all day. The new fresh skin that is revealed after peeling is particularly vulnerable to UV rays.
