In the beauty world, Alpha-H is known as luxurious international spa quality skincare, therefore I was excited to have recently been given the opportunity to trial and review samples of Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser, Liquid Gold, Micro Cleanse Super Scrub and Protection Plus Daily, thanks to the fab team at SkincareStore!
Alpha-H is the brand behind the cult status product Liquid Gold. I’ve wrote about Liquid Gold before, but just to remind you why it’s actually liquid gold – this one product boasts benefits including but not limited to;
- Clarifies and brightens the complexion
- Reduces the appearance of pigmentation, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles
- Works as a toner, exfoliator, serum, and moisturiser
- Increases moisture within the skin
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know I can be wary of new skincare products especially if they are comparable to salon quality products. But as I’ve had a good experience with Liquid Gold over the last few years, I found myself reading up on other Alpha-H products on their website, which is why I decided to trial further Alpha-H products in case you too had been considering purchase this range. My thoughts are below;
Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser: I prefer this cleanser on my no makeup days or even as the second cleanse, once my makeup is removed. I’m not confident on its ability to remove makeup as the one time I did swipe it over makeup, it didn’t do much but for a second cleanse – it’s a winner. It’s so creamy, may be the creamiest cleanser I’ve ever used, and leaves my skin feeling so nourishing and fresh without any sign of dryness whatsoever. The perfect winter cleanser….
Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream: The moisturiser has a balm like texture and I really enjoy this applied of an evening, as opposed to a morning before primer. It has quite a thick consistency and I feel it’s a more of a nourishing night cream which feels so lush on the skin! It also doesn’t have an SPF factor which lends me to think it’s more of an evening cream, especially if sun protection is important to you. I must admit, some nights I even skipped a serum or an oil as it felt so lush on the skin! Again, would be excellent for the cooler months thanks to its hydration.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold: There’s a reason why beauty experts, celebrities AND bloggers rave about this product, it’s HG status. I spoke about this product in a previous blog post, with my thoughts remaining the same as it’s a staple in my bathroom. I do have sensitive skin, as you may know, and I do worry about using such active ingredients for fear of irritation or reaction, but I can use this product every second night with no sensitivity at all – and less redness BOOM!
Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub: A very grainy yet strangely gentle scrub that I quite liked. It had a very thick consistency, almost like sand, but still completely gentle and didn’t drag on or around the skin.
And extra points to SkincareStore for the thoughtful sample of asap’s soothing gel, I always appreciate a sample that is specifically picked on your skin type or purchase – it’s a nice extra touch.
Have you used Alpha-H products before, do you believe they live up to the hype? I’d love to know so please share with me below in the comments!
