Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub

Having combination skin can be tricky to look after at times because it feels as dry as it is greasy. I have always been advised to exfoliate regularly and it is something I do at least 2-3 times a week and if possible, I use an exfoliating mask. New to my bathroom shelf is the Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub (£36) which is described as being the nearest thing to microdermabrasion in a tube.
Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub
Containing 12% glycolic acid alongside eco-friendly biodegradable jojoba beads, caffeine, cucumber and peppermint oil, this exfoliator is designed to effortlessly remove impurities and dead skin cells as well as to unclog pores.  

As it is applied to your skin, the Jojoba beads burst as you massage the scrub over your skin and in doing so, it releases pure Jojoba oil, which has a molecular structure almost identical to the skin's own sebum, to help re-establish equilibrium and maintain moisture levels.  The addition of caffeine works to tone and tighten the skin, reduce redness and inflammation and helping to improve your skin’s ability to absorb other products, making them more efficient.

Further ingredients to this scrub include Cooling Cucumber extract which helps to soothe and calm your skin, then we have Peppermint Oil which reduces redness and invigorates the skin. The addition of cucumber and Peppermint oil adds a coolness to the scrub as it is applied to the skin and as an oil which is used in aromatherapy, the scent works to stimulate the mind, increase mental agility and to increase focus.  I really like the texture of this scrub, it isn't too thick or runny and the scrub part itself isn't overly abrasive, but it does an amazing job when used on my skin and not only does it clear my complexion and pores, it removes dead and dry skin, which I usually find an issue on both cheeks and on my forehead.


Anyone who is familiar with Alpha-H Skincare and any of their products will know, that brand owner and director Michelle Doherty created Alpha-H out of her own skin struggles and personal need for effective skin treatments, so I am always happy to try absolutely anything for my own skincare issues and concerns because I know a lot of thought and work has gone into creating each and every product. The Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub can be found via Cult Beauty for £36 and it is worth absolutely every penny.

  3. Now this sounds like my kind of product! I love Alpha H, and I love scrubs even though the skincare police tell us it should all be about chemical exfoliation. You can't beat the feeling after using a scrub! xo

  4. I love the sound of this product but it's a bit out of my price range.
