Alpha-H The Essentials Collection

If you have never tried anything from Alpha-H then this Alpha-H The Essentials Collection is the set for you. Housed in a gift box, the skincare trio includes Essential Cleansing Balm (30ml), Essential Hydration Concentrate (25ml) and Essential Hydration Cream (30ml).

The Cleansing Balm is an absolute dream to use.  It is essentially a 4-in-1 product which acts as a cleanser, toner, makeup remover and soothing balm all rolled into one and it leaves your skin feeling just incredible.  The Essential Hydration Concentrate is made up of Rosehip, Geranium and Calendula Oils to replenish and hydrate your complexion. Ideal for use during periods of seasonal change, like now, to prevent moisture loss.  Then finally the Essential Hydration Cream is a really lightweight, soothing formula which helps to nourish and protect dry, sensitive skin. Infused with Evening Primrose Oil, Ylang-Ylang and antioxidant Vitamin E. It costs less than £40 if bought on its own.

Essential Hydration Concentrate is described as being like a hug in a bottle for dry, mature, stressed and sun-damaged skin. As an oil it is designed to not only be a replenishing treatment but because it has antioxidants in it, it also soothes, calms and rehydrates too. As you might expect from Alpha-H it is enriched with nine nurturing plant oils which includes both rose and geranium oils – which are rich in phytonutrients and they work alongside vitamins A, B, C, D and E to inhibit oxidative damage and delay the onset of premature ageing. A question I am most asked about the facial oils that I use is 'Are they Greasy?' and this one definitely isn't it. It does feel like an oil when first applied with the pipette, but once on the skin and massaged in, it soon absorbs leaving no trace behind, other than this incredible scent which reminds me of being in a Spa. You only need just a few drops of this oil and you can also mix it with your day and night cream too. Bought separately it is priced at £29.99.


Then finally there is the Essential Hydration Cream and one of my favourite Alpha-H products that I have come across so far.  Described as being a Cream which soothes, repairs and revitalises lacklustre complexions and it is one which is also suitable for even delicate types, this nourishing cream provides twenty-four hour hydration without being too rich for problematic or sensitive skin. The cream has quite a lightweight texture and within it, it suspends sea minerals, fatty acids and youth-restoring peptides in the finest essential oils. It does this to nurture both skin and senses and oils such as evening primrose and linoleic acid work to nourish the skin and restore elasticity; arnica montana, cypress, solomon's seal and barley all come together and work to counteract inflammation and minimise redness. Then there is the inclusion of palmitoyl tripeptide-5 which stimulates collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and I can't forget both ylang ylang and peppermint oils which balance sebum to normalise even oily skin. On its own, this cream retails for £35.




I have combination skin which is both oily (tzone) and dry and having just had the worst cold I have had in years, a chest infection and sinusitus all in one, my skin has been so dry and almost sore to the touch, that I am bathing in this collection and my skin is slowly but surely returning to its old self once again.  The kit can be found for less than £40 right here and it is an absolute bargain and a treat for you or someone who loves their skincare.

  5. This sounds amazing - I love using cleansing balms as I find they're great for removing makeup - and the ingredients sound so good too. I really need a new moisturiser, my poor skin relies on the moisture from my cleansing balm at the moment!

  14. I like the sound of this set, and the price is rather good. Winter is so harsh for skin,and with the added problems of lurgy I find having good products is essential.
