Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfol. by Alpha-H

Overview

Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant is a lightweight face lotion that gently exfoliates skin for improved texture and a hydrated complexion. Harnessing the powerful qualities of Glycolic Acid, this nourishing moisturiser helps clear congestion and brighten skin.

 

Hyaluronic Acid locks in moisture for continuous hydration. Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliator assists with anti-aging skin cell renewal to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as tackle breakouts, clogged pores, and pigmentation.

 

Perfect for normal, combination, and oily skin types, Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant is an ideal two-in-one moisturiser and exfoliator for a clearer, brighter, and hydrated look and feel.

 

 

Key benefits of Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant

  • Lightweight, fast-absorbing face cream
  • Hyaluronic Acid locks in moisture whilst Glycolic Acid exfoliates skin
  • Anti-aging properties to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and pigmentation
  • Rebalance sebum levels for oily complexions
  • Unclogs pores and minimises breakouts
  • Suitable for normal, oily, and combination skin types

 

What are the main ingredients in Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant?

The two main ingredients in Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant are Hyaluronic Acid and Glycolic Acid. Fast-absorbing Hyaluronic Acid helps reduce surface dehydration and lock in moisture for dehydrated skin types. The 10% Glycolic Acid works as a gentle face scrub to encourage skin cell turnover for a brighter and clearer complexion. This lightweight lotion is also enriched with antioxidants such as Green Tea and Vitamin E, which help protect skin from free radical damage. Aloe Vera helps soothe any irritation.

 

How to use Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant

  • Thoroughly cleanse skin and apply any serums and face oils.
  • Apply directly to face, neck, and decolletage in an upward motion.
  • Avoid the eye area.
  • Use morning and evening.

 

Who should use Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant?

Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant is the perfect moisturiser for normal, combination, problematic, and oily skin types. The lightweight and non-greasy formula allows for fast absorption. The cocktail of cosmeceutical and natural ingredients helps rebalance sebum levels whilst gently exfoliating. The exfoliation step helps minimise the appearance of discolouration, age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles and works as a blackhead extractor on blemish-prone skin. The Hyaluronic Acid provides the perfect boost of moisture for a balanced complexion.

 

Is Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant suitable for dry skin?

Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant can be used in a beauty skin care routine for dry skin. However, it’s recommended as a day cream, with a richer and more hydrating face cream to be used at night. The exfoliating action can help eliminate dryness and flakiness from dry and dehydrated skin.

 

Is Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant suitable for sensitive skin?

Due to its high concentration of Glycolic Acid, Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant may cause irritation on sensitive skin types. Start by using the treatment once or twice a week and build up to regular usage once the skin has adapted.

Another amazing product from Alpha-H - 11-09-2018 by

It says what it does, gently exfoliates while you’re wearing it! Feels like silk and great for dark spots too. Have had so many compliments on my skin after using this. Already recommended to so many people, this product will not disappoint at all. Part of my staple skincare routine now.

Great moisturiser for combination skin - 07-09-2018 by

Love this moisturiser! Have been after a moisturiser that nourishes my skin without leaving it oily or dehydrated and right. Enjoy the fresh minty smell. Easy to use and hygienic jar. Very happy! Will be my new staple!

Good so far - 03-09-2018 by

I’m a big fan of alpha h products and this cream has not disappointed so far. It leaves the skin looking plump and smooth. I haven’t tried it for long so I’m waiting to see if it starts helping with skin texture

Great moisturiser - 27-08-2018 by

I purchased the Alpha - H balancing moisturiser after suffering from very dry skin from breastfeeding - a friend recommended it to me and I haven’t looked back.
Within 5 days of using it I noticed a huge difference around my cheeks and once flaky skin turned into dewy plump skin! 10 days later and my skin was back to what it was Pre baby.
The only downside to this magic potion is the light tingling where the skin is broken - ie breakouts. However the tingling goes away with a minute or so.

I still love it and will definitely be purchasing it again.

ALPHA-H BALANCING MOISTURISER & GENTLE - 14-08-2018 by

I am on my second jar of Alpha H balancing moisturizer. It works well for my combination skin. It has improved my skin texture with constant usage, together with the Alpha H liquid gold & retinol products. I use it only in the morning (under makeup). It provides a nice, subtle dewy glow to the skin..

So good! - 14-08-2018 by

I have combination skin with a few blackheads here and there and have found that this moisturizer along with other alpha h products has improved my skin overall soo much. I can definitely feel a difference when I miss a few days from using this as my skin feels duller and not as fresh. I really love the gentle exfol in this product along with the moisturization.

Great Moisturiser! - 13-08-2018 by

I have dry acne-prone skin and I love how this moisturiser leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised! It has a cooling sensation that helps me feel refreshed as well!

Great for combination skin - 10-08-2018 by

This product is a nice light moisturizer for combination skin. Gives a nice smoothing, cooling sensation to your face.

Good Moisturiser - 02-08-2018 by

I have combination Skin and its hard for me to find good moisturizer,
this moisturizer is good on my skin and I don't have any rough dry skin anymore
I really recommend this,,

Light - 13-07-2018 by

This is a very light moisturiser. It feels so good and my skin is always so smooth when I use it.

Great light moisturizer - 10-07-2018 by

The hydration I get from this is so good. 8ts light and great for either day or night... or both.

On the fence - 10-07-2018 by

This product would have been custom-made for me were it not for the menthol, which I hate and which irritates my skin. I was a bit wary of the sweet almond oil in this, but it hasn't caused me any problems. However, the menthol certainly has, which means that I won't be repurchasing.

Use this at night. - 28-06-2018 by

A really nice moisturiser that provides moisture to the skin without feeling heavy. I have oily/combo skin and am still prone to break outs at 30 and I really like that this moisturiser helps to combat acne while also being a good moisturiser, I use this product every second night and mix it with my marula oil. I wake up with bright and fresh looking skin.

Excellent face moisturiser! - 22-06-2018 by

I have dry acne-prone skin and I love how this moisturiser leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised! It has a beautiful cooling sensation that helps me feel refreshed as well. It also has a light exfoliant in it which is great because my skin can't handle too many products so the fact that this is a two-in-one is really useful. I love it and I'm so glad that I discovered it and that Adore Beauty sells it!

Pure magic - 21-06-2018 by

I have dry-combination skin and I don't get pimples. Only when my hormones are doing its thing, however this cream is magic nevertheless. It moisturises and it LITERALLY exfoliates as well. It's like 2 essential parts of skin care in one. When you put it on, you feel that tingle and coolness in your skin as you rub it in and it settles in, you know its doing its job when you feel that. I wake up feeling a lot brighter. Absolutely love it

Brilliant - 18-06-2018 by

I first ever purchased a trial kit of this brand to see how my sensitive skin would react and boy do I love it. I am yet to buy a full size of this product because my trial size has lasted so long! It really is true what they say.. less is more

A great anytime moisturiser for combination skin! - 05-06-2018 by

I've been using Alpha-H's Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant for four months now and as a person with pretty temperamental combination skin, this moisturiser has been a lifesaver for me. It's very light in texture, and sinks in almost instantly. It also has quite a tingly - almost stinging - sensation on application, and for that reason I avoid putting it around my eye area (I have an eye cream, anyway). But I used this all summer and every second day in autumn (alternating with Alpha-H's Essential Hydration Cream as the weather gets colder) and have noticed that my skin is clearer, more even, and with substantially fewer hormonal breakouts. Recommend to anyone with combination/oily skin!

In love! - 01-06-2018 by

I love this product so much. Most moisturisers clog or just sit on my skin, but this one is pure perfection! I use it every morning with sunscreen and it smooths and thoroughly moisturizes my skin. With magical ingredients that help to keep those nasty radicals at bay, it's another great find, Wizardry in a bottle.

Let this night cream give you a tingling sensation - 25-05-2018 by

I am a normal/combo skin with hormonal breakouts, I bought this product because the reviews were amazing and the ingredients appealed to me to help my skin out.

The moisturiser is definitely lightweight and fast-absorbing, my breakouts are minimised and my skin looks refreshed and hydrated. If you are looking for a moisturiser that can do everything, I would definitely recommend this one!

Fantastic Night Cream - 17-05-2018 by

I really love this night cream. The added glycolic for exfoliating is amazing for my late 30's, oily, acne prone skin. Also found it to be amazing for my teenage daughter who suffers from Acne prone oily skin as well.
It felt light and hydrating but not heavy. Has a nice fresh scent that's not overpowering.
It is one I would use all year round for sure. Love the packaging also with it being a push down jar and the cream automatically dispensed out through a hole. Very hygienic!

Wonderful - 08-05-2018 by

Submitting my first ever beauty review, because this moisturiser is fantastic. My skin feels so soft and exfoliated. The moisturiser absorbs super quickly so you don't go to bed feeling like you have a tone of product on your face. The only reason I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars is because of the chemical smell.

Really good moisturiser - 08-05-2018 by

I love that this products hydrates and exfoliates in one. If you are after a chemical exfoliant that isn't harsh this one is definitely worth trying out. Alpha H is a great brand that has gentle but effective products when used correctly.

Tingly and lovely smell! - 30-04-2018 by

I LOVE this moisturiser! It is an easy and convenient way of delivering AHA's to the skin whilst moisturising at the same time. I find using Liquid Gold alone (which I know is the best way to reap the benefits) which is only 5% causes a bit too much irritation to my skin and I find the urge to itch, but even a 10% concentration of glycolic acid mixed into this light and silky moisturiser tingles but goes away within a couple of minutes. When I use this at night, my skin feels smooth to the touch the next morning and any blemishes I had are reduced in size and are less inflamed. The smell is yummy (I love anything minty!), will definitely be repurchasing this in the future.

Lightweight and hydrating for dry skin - 29-04-2018 by

First time using this, and my skin already feels softer and smoother. I have combination skin, and have been feeling very dry coming into the colder season. My skin feels hydrated and not greasy with this light weight formula. I have just started using Alpha products, and haven't been disappointed yet.

4th time purchase! - 19-04-2018 by

I usually wait a while before I write a review. The fact that I literally just received my 4th purchase of this makes me wonder what has taken me so long! Light weight, easily absorbed and smells divine! Not to mention the airtight packaging! This Is my go to moisturiser. One time, I got bored and purchased another... Only to barely make it half way until I repurchased Alpha H. I am a beauty therapist and I'm always on the look out for results driven skincare.This is Exactly that! I have recommended to close friends and family who have gone on to purchase!

Great night cream, could use in daytime also - 16-04-2018 by

I've üst started using this on my combination skin at night and its lovely. Love the smell and the the look of skin in the morning. Definitely improvement in texture quickly, but haven't used it for long enough to see if there will be a difference in pore look or pigmentation, I would use this in the daytime too if I wasn't going to be out int he sun and using my SPF day cream. Great pump jar too, looks great on the bathroom vanity.

Brilliant - 16-04-2018 by

I don’t think I’d switch to another moisturiser after using this one. I’m already into my second tub. It’s isnt overly greasy and I can put makeup on straight away without it feeling sticky. I feel like it has plumped my skin and calmed down the redness.

Love this moisturiser - 27-03-2018 by

Every time I switch off of this product, I regret it. I always come back. I have combination skin and when I get stressed, my skin acts up. I use this moisturiser as the night moisturiser and alternate with Alpha-H Liquid Gold or another moisturiser and bang...my skin is back to normal. I love this. Can't recommend it highly enough as a part of the PM routine. Only thing is I wouldn't use it in AM and PM as I find it's just a bit too much for my skin. You can use it in AM but need to use a sunscreen with it.

Smooth skin - 22-03-2018 by

This product make my skin feel so smooth in the mornings (when applied at night).

Best moisturiser I have ever used. - 17-01-2018 by

I am always unsure using moisturisers with such a combination skin and oily T zone, I tend to find some products too greasy and leaving me with more breakouts than I started.

I purchased Alphah Balancing Moisturiser with a sense of caution, but I had nothing to lose as the last brand I purchased ended up in the bin and I was in need of something new. So far its been amazing. I feel my skin is soft and has a dewy finish but not greasy. It leaves my skin tingly for the first few minutes and then it feels hydrated. I put a bit extra on at night on my neck. I have been alternating between this and they hydrating gel as its summer, but I can't wait till winter to put this on and see how well it takes care of dry spots!

One for keeps! - 18-09-2017 by

I've got combination skin with breakouts in the past but I noticed my skin tends to be abit drying now instead of oily as I aged. Regardless, I've been using AHA products for many years as it helps to control breakouts/acne.
I needed to change moisturizer with AHA as I've been using my current one for many years and feel that I need a change. I finally found this with the same content of AHA level.
Just started using it for nearly 2 weeks and am loving it! There's a very very slight tingling/cooling effect when I apply it but it goes away very quickly. I actually enjoy the feeling as it's telling me the product is at work. It feels abit thick when applying initially but it's not greasy and it absorbs into the skin immediately.
Skin feels soft afterwards. Will purchase again! :)

Alpha-h products are my new skincare everything - 12-09-2017 by

I love this moisturiser, it can be a little harsh if you have used the liquid gold, but if you just use one of their face washes and then this it feels amazing. I wake up with brighter skin. It's also helped a lot with my small amount of acne scarring (I don't have a lot of it but the scars are quite deep and this is literally plumping them out. I honestly cannot believe that every Alpha-H product lives up to its claims (for me anyway). I have spend thousands of dollars on my skin trying to fix the scaring (with skin needling and fillers - the skin needling did help but the fillets just ended up desolving over time). This skin care range has changed my whole face. I would 100% reccomded this. Think about what your skin needs and you can even go to the website and look into the products more and find what you think you need and then come back to Adore Beauty and buy them, start with one or two products and build that's what I did and then I kept adding and adding and I don't get any facials done anymore (I use to get them done monthly) and no more chemical peels. It's by far the best skincare range on the market and even better it's AUSTRALIAN OWNED!!!!

A special moisturiser! - 10-06-2016 by

I really enjoy using this product! My skin feels great! It is SUPER fast absorbing so you do not need to warm the product in your hands first!

Not what I expected - 17-08-2015 by

I purchased this from a recommendation from a friend. It didn't do for me what I thought it would. I previously used SKII stem power which is great, but they are so different. Doesn't feel like it moisturisers enough for my liking.

Great product - 23-10-2014 by

I am currently using this moisturiser in combination with the Alpha H Face the day kit and my skin is feeling amazing.
My skin is combination and has dry patches as well as really oily sections, I have noticed that it is more balanced, not as oily anymore or dry for that matter. Very happy customer.

Perfect moisturiser for me - 24-06-2014 by

I still have combination skin in my 50's , and when researching a suitable moisturiser especially for oily areas I found this one and I love it. So true that a little bit goes a very long way. Thank you Alpha-H and Adore Beauty.

Radiance! - 26-03-2014 by

WOW - I have recently started using this as my night cream, and I've instantly fallen in love! A little goes a long way. I wake in the morning to glowing and radiant skin. My congestion has reduced already and my skin feels smooth to the touch. I would be hesitant to use this in the morning due to the AHAs, and wear my sunscreen religiously as it makes the skin more sensitive to UV damage (Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF30+) with additional SPF top ups throughout the day. I have combination skin, and the lightweight consistency works perfectly for me.

Amazing! - 03-11-2013 by

Absolutely amazing! I've never been so excited to see my skin clear up and my complexion become brighter, and I've only been using it for a week!
My skin isn't terrible... But a bit congested on the forehead and hormonal acne that just doesn't seem to want to go away. For some reason (this year) my skin has just started to want to stay like this forever.. until now! I started using it every second night by swapping my regular night moisturiser for this one. I didn't know how my skin would react to the glycolic acid, so I thought by having a break every second night I can assess how my skin is taking to it. My skin loves it! I wake up and my skin is soft and complexion is brighter.
I'm excited to see how my skin will look after using this moisturiser long term.

Great daily moisturiser - 24-09-2012 by

I love this moisturiser as a daily. It is light and absorbs into my skin instantly. I have quite oily skin and have used this one for years. I have not found another on the market that works quite so well. I would highly recommend it. And as with all Alhph H products, a little goes a long way.

Essential - 07-06-2011 by

I was introduced to this by a friend, and now I cannot live without it. I love this product, my dry skin is now smooth and my scars have minimised. My skin felt great within the first week of using it and it goes back to being dull if I stop. I''m not a massive fan of the price, but I love it too much not to have!

- 28-07-2009 by

This is an update to my last review. I found this irritated my skin over regular use which is odd as other Alpha H products with glycolic are fine with my skin. Also did little to improve my complexion. A little goes a lonmg way so great value but it did make my skin shiny and as mentioned in my initial review I prefer a product with more antioxidant/vitamin inclusions.

- 23-06-2009 by

This is lovely and lightweight - not at all irritating on my sometimes sensitive skin. Only drawback for me is that I prefer my moisturizers to have inbuilt vitamins/antioxidants which this does not have.

- 22-06-2009 by

I love this product! The first time that I tried it, I quickly discovered that a little goes a long way and the amount that I squeezed out to do my face did that plus my neck, chest area and the back of my hands. Due to its extremely light texture, I didn't think that this would be moisturising enough for my skin in the cold weather but I was pleasantly surprised and it certainly was hydrating enough. This product has made a huge difference to the texture of my skin, particularly on my neck where I din't usually use any active ingredients. I think that this will definitely become a must-have product in my collection!

- 22-11-2008 by

This didn't work for me. I was looking for something for breakout prone skin but unfortunately my skin didn't adapt well to this product causing redness and sensitivity and just generally feeling unsettled.

- 26-08-2008 by

For me this feels more like a 'treatment' than a moisturiser, even though it does moisturise nicely. The glycolic makes my skin prickle a little, but that only lasts for a couple of minutes. The cream itself feels a little greasy but I have only ever used it at night so it hasn't been a problem. It leaves my skin looking great the next day. One tube has lasted me nearly a year (although I don't use it every day). I would repurchase this for times when skin feels a little dull or congested.

- 10-07-2008 by

Oh dear, I'm the only dissenting voice on this one. Didn't work for me unfortunately - caused breakouts and flakiness. A shame, because I love Alpha-h! Fantastic that it works for other people though, good products are hard to find!
