Light, gentle and creamyExtremely light, gentle and creamy cleanser. Also great for removing make up. Has a very light gentle scent
Number 1 cleanserNo matter how many times I try out new products I always return to this cleanser. Removes all my makeup but still has that moisturised feeling afterwards. Love.
Would not recommend this cleanser.verified purchaserI checked the ingredients of this cleanser before using it and there were none listed that I was sensitive to, however I broke out in a severe allergic reaction shortly after using this in conjunction with a moisturiser from this same brand. I looked like I had been stung by 10 bees, and once the swelling of my face subsided I had patches of what seemed to be chemical burn. I've never had a reacti...Read More
Excellent make up removerThis product is amazing for removing all traces of make up and skin is left feeling very soft. I use liquid eyeliner and mascara everyday and I had a sample if this which I took with me while travelling. I was amazed at how quickly and gently this removed all make up. I will be purchasing this product.
Creamy and nourishingI like this cleanser as a little goes a long way, and it's nice and moisturising for winter skin. It's a bit too creamy for summer use
Gentle yet effectiveverified purchaserThis cleanser is amazing for a gentle cleanse. I have dry skin and it's great at balancing the moisture in my skin.
So gentle!Finally I have found a cleanser that effectively cleans my dry skin, leaving me feeling refreshed, without stripping my skin and giving me an awful itchy, dry tight feeling. The consistency is soft and creamy and after use my skin feels really clean with a pleasant firmness and no redness or irritation.
Ok productDon't like it, don't hate it, just very normal, but I do hate the chemical smell, won't buy the full size, I recommend Murad cleanser if you have acne, combination skin
Nourishing and gentle cleanserThe title of this review really says it all! I actually didn't realise this was a cream cleanser when I ordered it and was expecting a gel. That said, it was lovely to use and I will definitely consider repurchasing in future. It felt really nourishing to my skin, but my face still felt clean and the majority of my makeup was removed on the first cleanser which is great as it rarely happens! The s...Read More
Purchased after samplingI purchased this after receiving a sample and am very glad that I did. It is a very gentle cleanser that makes my skin feel clean but not stripped of natural oils. I really enjoy using it.
A great cleanserHave been using this cleanser for just over a week now. I am so impressed. Washes off all my make up and has already started to clear my skin from some pesky pimples other cleansers haven't been able to and still keeps my skin feeling hydrated.
All the alpha h products come in nice and modern packaging that will look great in any bathroom.
Non-dryingThis cleanser is so effective and doesn’t strip your skin of moisture! I usually use foaming cleansers but not again after this. My skin is left clean, but not dried out and feeling “tight”. I’m loving adore beauty samples as they let me find things better for my routine!
Alpha balancing cleanserBeautiful cleanser not greasy at all
Gentle cleanserLove this cleanser. It’s great for sensitive skin. I also love the minimalist packaging
Gentle cleanserLove this cleanser, it makes my skin feel so smooth and clean. It does not make my face feeling stripped and dry after use. It is gentle, but effectively removes all face makeup and waterproof eye makeup, and does not sting or irritate my eyes. The smell is pleasant as well. Would recommend this cleanser for sensitive skin, since it does not seem to cause any rashes or breakouts to my skin.
Simply the best!This cleanser is absolutely divine and leaves our skin feeling clean, yet certainly not stripped of any of its natural oils!! Will be repurchasing again and again but next time in the 500ml bottle!
Gentle and creamyI don't normally reach for creamy cleansers because I feel like they're not as "cleansing" on my skin as gel cleansers. But I purchased for its moisturising and gentle description and it did not disappoint. It surprisingly takes off my make out and then I cleanser once more without it leaving my skin feeling tight.
GreasyI didn't really enjoy using this cleanser as I found it really thick and greasy feeling rather then cleansing. Overall I'd say that I prefer gel cleansers over cream cleansers as I find them more soothing and refreshing on my skin. I have combination skin so don't like anything heavy on it and won't be using this product again
Nice but not amazingI received a large sample of this and used it as my morning cleanser for 2 weeks. My skin felt clean and fresh after using, but there was nothing “wow” about it for me. Just a nice, basic, effective cleanser. I probably wouldn’t purchase as I’ve tried other cleansers that I like better due to scent or texture.
A Nice Gentle CleanserI received a sample sized version of this product in a goodie bag.
It's a very gentle and light cleanser that was kind to my sensitive skin. It's useful for removing makeup, though it's more of a pre cleanser than an actual cleansing product.
It does do what it claims but I do need to use a foaming cleanser afterwards or my face is left a little too oily.
Great everyday cleanserLove the tube and simplicity of this cleanser. It is great for everyday use and has been great on my sensitive skin
Lovely and creamya really nice cleanser, it is both calming and does give a good cleanse, it is good for normal to oily types and helps keep my skin clean and oil free during the day
Couldn't get past the smellThis cleanser was good at removing my full face of make up, it was gentle and didn't cause my skin to react or break out.
The one thing that really bothered me was the smell.
It was very chemical and personally I found it quite potent and off putting. It's a shame as I did really like all other things about this cleanser but just couldn't tolerate the smell.
Love!!!This is my second purchase of this cleanser. I absolutely love it! Leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and best of all not dry! Best cleanser I have tried.
SensitivityI loved the way this went on and the fact that it is SPF but after the third day of repeated use my eyes started reacting to the product . They went red and were watering which never happens, sometimes my skin can react to a product but never so bad my eyes water. I had to go into the bathroom at work and wipe the product off my face but the reaction stuck around. Unfortunate!
Its alrightThis cleanser is gentle on my skin and not too fragranced. Leaves my skin soft. And this product is environmental friendly which i support.
Loved it!This cleanser is gentle on the skin and suitable for sensitive skin-types. Does it's job without leaving an oily residue. Leaves skin feeling clean without stripping natural oils. Only complaint is that you still need to double-cleanse to completely remove make-up, and a lot of product is used. I would buy again.
Gentle cleanserI love this cleanser because it’s gentle on my sensitive skin and not too fragranced. Doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight
Not badMy skin is on the oily side and this cleanser did well at cleaning my skin however it just wasn't my cup of tea. I got oily within an hour after applying this. This product would be great for drier skin types.
lovely cream cleanserFinally I have found a cleanser that effectively cleans my dry skin, leaving me feeling refreshed, without stripping my skin and giving me an awful itchy, dry tight feeling. The consistency is soft and creamy and after use my skin feels really clean with a pleasant firmness and no redness or irritation.
Soft and lovelyThis cleanser feels nice and gentle and is very creamy. I find if best if I use the Alpha H triple action cleanser at night to complement this.
Excellent CleanserThis cleanser ticks all the boxes. It is gentle on the skin, removes all makeup including mascara, smells lovely and doesn't leave your skin feeling tight or dry.
I absolutely love this product!
GoodThis is a good cleanser. .Very simple and easy to use
It’s okayThis cleanser is not suitable for combination skin in my opinion, it does not cleanse thoroughly enough. Whilst it is not drying it is better suited to more dry skin types.
SimpleThis product is so easy to use and makes cleansing (something I used to avoid) easy and simple. Thanks Adore team for suggesting it.
Non strippingThis is a nice, gentle cleanser that doesn't strip the skin while still giving a good clean. I tried it as an alternative to my 'normal' cleanser which is double the price and I really can't tell the difference.
Nice and gentleI use this to wash my face & make up off. It's pretty good at removing make up. Doesn't irritate my skin which is a good thing as most products do. Love how much product you get too much bigger than I thought
Gentle & non-irritatingI use this cleanser whenever my skin is feeling really dry or sensitive. I find it’s gentle and non irritating, although deeply cleanses so skin feels fresh.
Not irritatingGreat cleanser to remove makeup - doesn't feel drying or irritating. I would recommend buying the larger size to save money
So gentleGreat cream cleanser perfect for sensitive skin. My skin absolutely loves Alpha-H, a great cleanser for oilier skin types.
Better for dry skinI have combination skin thats a little on the oilier side and whilst this cleanser is gentle it is better for people who have regular to dry skin due to it being more hydrating.
Soft and subtleThis cleanser is very gentle and soft on skin and would be great for someone with sensitive skin. It does not cause any irritation and keeps the skin feeling balanced and hydrated. I have normal to combination skin but I like to use this cleanser just to remove my makeup etc. I then use an exfoliating cleanser 2-3 times per week and this works well for me.
Polished skinI love this cleanser. It makes my skin look so polished and feel super smooth.
Bit underwhelmingI bought this as I wanted a cleanser that would remove my daily makeup in the shower.
It’s very gentle and moisturising however I found it didn’t have quite enough power to remove all my mascara off my face during washing although most case off. I still needed to use a make up remover afterwards and my mascara is not the waterproof type either.
Skin felt clean however not quite what i ...Read More
Super natural and gentleSuper soft and gentle cleanser that feels amazing and leaves my skin refreshed and nourished.
Great gentle cleanserThis cleanser is very nice, I use it at night, to remove makeup and cleanse my face,
It is gentle and removes foundation and powder very well.
Pretty goodThis cleanser is gentle and creamy on my sensitive skin. It removes makeup pretty well, however I find you have to rinse your face very well after otherwise you tend to be left with a slight residue on the skin. It is pricey but has lasted me a long time. The pump dispenses controlled applications which is super helpful!
Gentle and non-dryingThis cleanser is perfect for normal to combination skin. It leaves my skin feeling clean without giving me a drying feeling. About to purchase my second bottle.
Nice enoughThis cleanser is pretty nice and leaves my skin soft and fresh. Hasn’t irritated me or broke me out so that’s good. A little goes a long way so the tube should last a while
Fantastic cleanserFinally found a cleanser I can use in all seasons... non irritating, gentle and enough to remove the day..
Great cream cleanser perfect for sensitive skin..
Lovely milk cleanserI received this as a sample. I have oily skin so a milky cleanser is not something i would purchase. That said, i've been using it as a first clean to get off makeup or as a quick wash after a walk/ride and i adore the texture of the milk on my skin. My skin feels so soft afterwards. Sadly it's not a cleanser i could use heavily as part of my routine as its a bit too rich for my type of skin. If y...Read More
GreatIt is very concentrated small amount goes long way. I have my bottle for months now and I use it every single night. It is very calming on the skin and it melts the makeup away I can use it on the eye area.
A must for Dry Skin TypesThis cleanser is the most comfortable to use. It wont leave skin feeling tight and going on it feels so creamy! The 500ml size is definitely worth investing in if you are a dry skin type.
NiceThis is a great cleanser that is nice to use in morning or at end of day to remove last traces of makeup. Makes my skin feel clean and smooth.
Great cleanserQuite good! Makes my skin feel nice and smooth. I use this a lot!
Great cleanser!This cleanser is fantastic! It clears off all my makeup and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth. Has also balanced out the oils in my skin so my makeup stays great for the whole day.
GentleThis is a gentle cream cleanser that cleans my skin well without drying it out.
I massage it over my face and rinse it off. It doesn't lather. It rinsed off easily leaving no residue.
My face feels comfortable afterwards and not stripped.
This has a slightly sweet fresh scent.
Love itThis cleanser has a really milky texture and its honestly great! I feel clean but not dry or irritated.
For sensitive skinAnother great Alpha-h cleanser which does not foam, or strip my skin. I use this one on the evenings before I apply Liquid Gold or retinol because it's very soothing. It's also good as the second step in my double-cleanse routine because it removes any leftover oil residue from the first step. Afterwards my skin is noticeably brighter. It's not my favorite cleanser from this brand but it's good to...Read More
Great gentle cleanserGreat gentle cleanser that hydrates and cleans my sensitive skin. The creamy texture softens and makes my face smooth. I love the texture and smell.
a bit pricey but goodNot the most affordable in the range but it takes off my make up very well! I have rather oily skin and it has helped produce less oil in my skin over time. Would definitely recommend to anyone with a similar skin type!
Would recommendSmells really good, removes makeup and cleanses well. Good for irritable skin, it has a nice milky texture.
Love how it removes eye makeup gentlyMy skin is combination and I often wash my make up off in the shower at night. I like how I can use this cleanser on my eyes to remove my mascara. I don't use heavy makeup (BB cream, eyebrows and mascara) so this is perfect for me. I usually follow with another cleanse using a more foamy cleanser. But sometimes I use this product for both cleanses. I love it!
Nice gentle cleanserI received a 15mL sample from a promotion and used it morning and night while away on holiday. My combination skin wasn’t particularly happy with hot, humid weather but this cleanser definitely made my skin feel fresh and clean at the end of the day. However I found it wasn’t that effective at removing eye makeup (eye liner and mascara) and needed to use more than I normally would to achieve that....Read More
Amazing!!!I have super duper sensitive skin and was put onto this cleanser by my beautician. It has cleared up my super dry patches and even helped with my redness. 100% love it it's so gentle
Great value, good for dry skinMy skin feels very clean and refreshed afterwards, not too heavy, gentle enough for dry skin but cleans well. You can double cleanse if you’ve had makeup on or sunscreen or just feel more dirty then normal. I get dry patches on my nose and chin which flared up when using this and a lighter mosterizer but changing back to intensive moisturiser and that should help.
Great all-round cleanserThis was a really great cleanser although I felt like I needed a second cleanse to really remove stubborn sunscreen and make up. Works beautifully with my dry/sensitive skin and doesn't later. Great consistency. Would order again.
Nice deep cleanserNice squeaky clean. Maybe a touch too drying for my normal to dryer skin.
Clean, refreshed skinI received a deluxe sample of this and am really enjoying using it. It leaves my skin feeling clean and tingly without being tight and is a great step prior to using Liquid Gold. I have dehydrated skin and this doesn’t strip my skin. Great cleanser at a reasonable price!
blahI have very sensitive skin so it's hard for me to find good cleanser. But so far this works well. it does it's job and it doesn't irritate my skin. But it doesnt remove make up residue though. You will have to use make remover to clean your face and then only use this to cleanse your face.
Excellent cleanserI was looking for a new cleanser for the morning that wouldn’t dry my skin out and this is fantastic I love this cleanser will be buying the bigger version next time.
DelightfulThis is my favourite cleanser, it's creamy and light and feels lovely when I'm applying to my face. The cream format is great for when my skin's a little dryer
Didn't work for meSkin type: Combo/ normal
I had such high hopes for this cleanser as I am a big fan of Alpha-H, however, for some reason it caused me to break out almost immediately after use. I have given it a month to adjust to my skin but it just doesn't work for me and so I have switched back to my old foaming cleanser. So disappointed as it does a great job of removing grime and is very gentle on...Read More
Effective, hydrating cleanserI didn’t think it was possible to have a cleanser that effective removes makeup while also hydrating the skin - this does both exceptionally well!
Good cleanserNice, easy to apply cleanser to start my nightly facial routine
Nothing specialUnfortunately this cleanser just didn't impress me. I usually love cream cleansers but this just didn't feel like it was doing much for my skin. I think it's just personal preference and I just don't think this product was for me.
Excellent cream cleanserI use this cream cleanser as part of my evening skincare routine as the second cleanse. It is gentle on my skin yet removes all final traces of makeup and daily grime. Well priced as a blueberry sized amount of the product is perfect for a full cleanse of the face and neck.
I have normal to dry, 36 year old skin, without particular sensitivities.
GoodThis is my third or fourth time buying this cleanser. Works well for sensitive skin. Does not make the skin feel tight. However, the bad is that it does not really cleanse your face if it is too oily
Alpha-H Balancing CleanserI use this with my Clarisonic mia on a daily basis and love it! My skin is so smooth and clear.
Favourite cleanserThis is my favourite cleanser, it's creamy and light and feels lovely when I'm applying to my face.
I use this as the first step in my double cleanse each evening. Super effective at removing makeup and leaves my skin feeling lovely and refreshed but not dry and tight. Great value, lasts for ages.
Surprisingly pleasedI tried this based on ingredients and reviews and I’m surprisingly pleased with the results. I use an eye makeup remover as I generally wear waterproof mascara, before I wash my face and this does a good job of removing everything from the day. I’ve been using AHA based products since age 13 and I’m now 55+ with combo skin but I didn’t want that dry tight feeling, this cleans well, isn’t greasy at...Read More
Lovely cleanserThis is a really lovely cleanser. I love that it's rich but not greasy. I have combination oily skin and think it will be my winter staple cleanser.
AlrightIt is indeed very gentle but didn’t find it effectively cleansed my skin and removed all my makeup. I used this as a second cleaning step after my oil cleanse and there were still a lot of traces of eye makeup. But if you aren’t a heavy makeup wearer this would be great. Very gentle and soothing. The ingredients list is great, only downside is fragrance which I believe is never necessary in a skin...Read More
Surprising amazing!Ive never tried Alpha H before so I was excited to get a free sample of this cleanser. I was a worried when I saw how creamy it was as I have very acne prone skin, and I've never used a creamy cleanser before, but it is amazing! It leaves your skin feeling really soft and smooth, but also clean. I would definitely buy this
GreatThis is my third or fourth time buying this cleanser. Works well for sensitive skin. Does not make the skin feel tight. However, the bad is that it does not really cleanse your face if it is too oily
Will use againI have dry/combination skin. I used this product having been recommended it by a beauty advisor on Adore Beauty. It is super soft and gentle on the skin and the bottle lasts ages! Value for money for sure! I feel it helped to calm my skin (redness) and cleansed well also. I was pleasantly surprised with this product.
Amazing cleanserI have dry and sensitive skin and this cleanser is a godsend! It removes all traces of my make up and makes my skin feel super clean and refreshed. Definitely recommend.
Very Light CleanserI wear moderate to heavy makeup each day with acne prone skin and didn't find this cleanser very effective in terms of removing my makeup and cleansing my skin. Will not be repurchasing.
Unsure about thisPros: Nice non irritating formula. Doesn't hurt your eyes.
Cons: Doesn't really remove makeup fully even after 3 goes. Not sure how effective it is at removing dirt and oil given this.
I now use this after a make up removing halo sponge and it definitely does bring back some moisture after I use it. But that's not really what you get a cleanser for.
Light and creamyI've only use the balancing Cleanser twice and I do like it it is light and creamy and soft and it smells ok face feels pretty clean afterwards.

LoveThis is a great cleanser and it really melts away the makeup, with other cleansers I wash my face in the morning and still have makeup on but with Alpha H cleansers (I have a fair few of them) it ALL comes off.
Amazing!!After using many different skin care brands and mostly all of them having the same result of drying out my skin when washing my face, I was so amazed by this product as my skin was left feeling so soft and definitely no dry spots! Definitely will be ordering more and so happy I found a cleanser that actually works! :)
Gentle for my sensitive skinI felt my previous cleanser was drying my skin out, so bought this one after reading the good reviews. It didn't have any negative reaction to my sensitive skin at all and I found it nice and hydrating. I have to pre-cleanse if I'm wearing makeup as it doesn't always come off in the first round. Overall a good quality product which I will buy again.
NiceFound this to be much creamier than the 'cleansing milk' description. nice and hydrating for skin, doesn't irritate and smells very subtle which i like. For me though it didn't help with my primary concern which is hormonal congestion.
Gentle but thoroughThis is by far the best cleanser I have ever used. It's gently washes away every trace of makeup, oil, grime - and is great to use as a double cleanse too, and lovely to massage into the skin and leave on as a mask. I have sensitive, combo skin and this cleanser seems to keep my skin clear, while also nourished and hydrated. It's so affordable compared to similar products so I will definitely be p...Read More
Repeat purchaser!I love this cleanser! So creamy and easy to lather into the skin, it doesn’t have that drying or tightening effect that many other cleansers have after removing makeup. My partner and I both use it daily in the shower, so I’d say it’s a good unisex cleanser as it doesn’t have a strong feminine scent and seems to help his dry skin from shaving. I combine this cleanser with the alpha h micro scrub w...Read More
Light cleanserThe texture of this cleanser is milky and leaves your skin really hydrated. The only criticism I have is that it doesn’t remove all makeup if you haven’t used a makeup remover first
Great for sensitive skinLove this cleanser and is one of the best I have ever used! Great for sensitive skin but still removes makeup effectively. Leaves skin feeling clean and fresh.
Very calming for irritated skinLoved this cleanser! I've been using the Alpha-H cleanser daily for around 2 months now. My skin was very dry and sensitive and it improved my skin a lot.
