Alpha H Skincare – Worth the money ?

 

I am a self confessed beauty addict and I have a new found love affair with skincare . I love to try out new brands whether high end or high street , I had seen Alpha H every where for a few years and was really itching to try out some products , it is pretty pricey so I opted to get a skin kit ( I picked up Normal to Dry ) from cloud 10 retailing at €45.50 . I think sets like these are such great way to try out skincare at a more affordable price . This kit contained 5 products ( 30 ml each )

Cleanse
Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser – It is  contains Vitamin E and Aloe Vera , I have used this to cleanse my skin only as I think my skin needs something stronger to take off my make up , you could use this as your second cleanse option .

Exfoliate
Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub is microbead-free and contains 12% Glycolic Acid to give skin an instant boost, it says it gets rid of fine lines ( of which I have many !!! ) but I am not sold on that just yet !

 Protect
Alpha-H Protection Plus Daily SPF 50+ is a daily moisturiser with broad spectrum sun protection to shield you from the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays. This sits really well under make up but as a moisturiser I would prefer the Hydration Cream .

Renew
The Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask has 15% Glycolic Acid . This mask does make your face tingle so do not be alarmed if you have an odd feeling when you apply the mask ! It smells really strongly of lavender , so if you do not like it I would advise to stay clear . This left my skin soft and with a nice glow , would I buy this again ? In short , no  but,  that does not mean it is not a great product but there are other products out there that are cheaper and do the same job .

Nourish
Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream  soothes and repairs dry and irritated skin. It is Rich in Essential Fatty Acids and is by far my favourite product that I have tried ! My skin was super soft after using this , it is super thick and a little goes a long way with it .

Overall all of the products are lovely but honestly the only product that I would repurchase is the hydration cream , though the other products are nice there are way cheaper alternatives that are just as good .

( P.S If you use any product with Glycolic then always were SPF when out and about )
