Good value, soaks in well

Kez

This is good value because you don’t need much but it goes a long way. Soaks in well to skin. Leaves residue around bottle when product dries.
  1. normally good

    Kylie Deng

    Overall, it's a good product, but I'm not sure how much sun protection it has. However, it always comes as a freebie, which makes me feel like it's cheap.
  2. great

    tena

  3. Lightweight and soft

    Mel J

    verified purchaser
    Left my skin feeling soft and hydrated. Not too heavy. I don’t have overly dry skin so this was perfect. Sat nice under mineral powder.
  4. Great!

    Amy

    Love this face cream. I’ve tried a range of creams so wasn’t expecting much from yet another one on the list to try out, but was surprised at the results. My skin feels plump and smooth every time after I put it on. A little goes a long way, and the cream smells like rose but is not overpowering. It’s now my must have for moisturiser. Highly recommend.
  5. So nourishing

    Carly

    I have a tube of this for when skin is super dry...like winter or if I have been in heating or aircon for while. It always brings my skin back to life. Although richer than other creams I use, it never makes my skin break out

  7. Moisturising but expensive

    Olive

    I use this as a night moisturiser. It is very great, very intense. Absorbs into the skin and doesn't feel sticky. However, it is pretty expensive and not sure if it's worth it.
  8. Will repurchase

    Kate

    This is a great moisturiser to put on in the evenings on top of your Retinol/AHA serums as it has no actives in it, and is so nourishing. This was my first time purchasing and I will definitely buy again.
  9. Bit of a miss for me

    Jphers

    I have been really impressed with Alpha H products so far and I was looking for a moisturiser to increase hydration that also wears well under makeup. It has a very thick consistency and a very strong rose/floral fragrance. I found it soaks in but I still have that tight dehydrated feeling, leaving me feeling like I need to reapply. It’s not bad by any means but it just wasn’t right for me.
  10. Feels nice, strong smell

    Sally91

    This moitsuriser is nice and thick and creamy. To start with I was a bit nervous because it was much thicker than my usual moisturiser but it hasn't clogged my pores or made my breakouts any worse.
    My only complaint is the strong floral/rose/geranium smell. It doesn't linger after you've put it on and I'm used to it now but it is strong. I prefer things with no/minimal added fragrances.
  11. hydrating

    HT

    hydrating and non-greasy. Nice every day moisteriser.
  12. really good!

    shar

    this is really good, super affordable and hydrating
  13. Liked it

    C

    I have dry skin with redness and fine lines. This product goes on really nicely, a little goes a long way and it feels moisturising without being heavy. It does have quite a strong smell of geranium, which fades once applied.
  14. Soft cream

    Stargazer

    Beautiful soft cream that spreads easy and feels good on the skin. It feels light-weight but moisturises well. Didnt break out my sensitive combination skin. Worth a try!
  15. Beautifully hydrating

    Trishpc

    I love this moisturiser especially in winter as it has enough SPF to cover the season. I love this because it's super hydrating but not heavy or greasy, it sinks in like water and has a beautiful smells. I get break outs but this did not break me out! BONUS
  16. Great morning moisturizer

    Courtney

    I use this every morning after my serums and underneath my sunscreen - I love it! It's very lightweight but moisturizing enough for the day. It smells lovely and a little goes a long way. It's a good price point too! Does the job for sure and will be a continual repurchase for me
  17. Its ok!

    Jess

    Not a bad cream, smell is good! Probably wouldn't purchase again. Doesn't seem to moisturise that much, there are better creams on the market.
  18. Light and fresh

    Stella

    A fantastic everyday moisturiser to add into your routine.
  19. Like giving your skin a drink

    Sammy

    Can't even tell you how many times I've purchased this moisturiser. Such a beautiful, hydrating moisturiser - every time I apply it it feels as though my skin is literally drinking it up. So soothing and leaves a lovely finish
  20. Hydrating and calming

    Emma

    Tried this from the recommendation from a friend and I'm now onto my second refill! I can always trust this cream to hydrate my skin and help calm any inflammation.
    Recently I damaged my skins barrier with another product and used this cream to help rebuild my barrier up. It's calming and hydrating and has a lovely soft rose scent as well.

  21. Nice texture, not so nice scent

    JenB

    I love the texture of this cream, it's rich and soothing and lovely. But the scent is something I do not like, it smells like rose essential oil. I would recommend this to someone who doesn't mind strong fragrance.
  22. hydrating

    Greta

    This is a lovely cream for winter. It has rich consistency and really moisturizes your skin in winter.
  23. Simply Lovely

    Jo K-T

    This would have to be one of the most beautiful night creams I have used. It feels quite decadent, especially as it is very reasonably priced, this may have to do with the fact that it smells like roses and its consistency is thick but not too thick that it becomes stodgy on your face. Sinks in easily and leaves your face glowing the next morning. I do truly love everything about this moisturiser ...

  24. Makes skin feel smooth and calm

    Elise

    I got this as a larger sample size and I will be ordering it shortly. Its a lovely soft cream that's not oily and absorbs well into my skin. Making my skin smooth and calm. I have dry to sensitive skin especially in winter
  25. A staple

    Ashley

    This is a real staple item for me, I love to keep this in my cupboard after I do a stronger mask or get a facial to give me a nice amount of hydration without being heavy. It’s so nice on the skin even for my oily skin or an evening.
  26. Gorgeous scent

    Sapphire

    This smells so lovely and I swear it plumps up my skin! I use it as a night cream.
  27. Great

    Cait

    I really like this moisturiser. I have been using it twice daily for about a month and it's still got plenty left.
    Leaves my skin feeling hydrated and plump.
    It has a very strong rose scent, so If you don't like highly scented face products, this may not be right for you.
    It's also quite pricey for only being 50ml, I wasn't expecting it to be so small when I received it.

  28. Essential and hydrates!

    Ellyn

    I bought this face cream because my skin goes a bit chaotic in winter with reduced humidity in the air and this was a lifesaver. I don't particularly enjoy the smell of this cream but it goes away quickly and is really hydrating and makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. Best part is, that I don't wake up with an oily feeling face, as some hydrating moisturisers can do.
  29. Soothing and hydrating

    Simone

    I have dry and sensitive skin prone to rosacea in winter. In combination with other Alpha products my skin has been consistently good for several months. This is my second purchase of this cream. I love it
  30. Nice texture, but rubs in well- overall good product

    Christie

    Easy and smooth to apply
    I liked e texture not to thick but enough to provide hydration.
    Lasts the day
    Have bought my second tube
  31. Dry skin must have

    Jessica

    Amazing moisturizer! Sinks in pretty fast but the skin feels hydrated all day. The scent is pretty strong so if you have issues with that you might not like this. I have super dry skin and eczema on my face, this has definitely helped my skin during the cold weather.
  32. It is a nice cream

    Christina

    I like to use it in the morning , then suncreen,. it keeps my skin nice and hydrated. I would like to reckon it.
  33. Just ok

    Lucy

    Have been using for a couple of weeks now. Got to try and hydrate skin a bit more in winter - nothing to rave about though. Smells really floral/rosy which I'm personally not a fan of but maybe this will appeal to other people.
  34. Smell reminds me of Grandma

    Dee

    I love Alpha-H products, but this product is just "okay", I don't love it and I don't reach for it in my skincare cupboard and the rose scent might scare people off. It reminds me of Grandma/essential oils/pot pourri. I'd much rather no scent on this, or something not so offensive. Hydration wise its okay, nothing special though
  35. 2nd purchase

    Peppy

    This is my second purchase of this cream. I love it. I have mature dry and sensitive skin prone to rosacea in winter. In combination with other Alpha products my skin gas been consistently good for several months.
  36. Lightweight and Soothing

    Emma

    My friend got this cream for me after having a bad reaction from the previous cream I was using. I absolutely love it. It's SO soothing and great for my sensitive skin. Also, can we talk about the smell!! It's heavenly! If you love the smell of roses, this cream is for you. However, if you're looking for heavy cream, this is more of a light cream.
  37. My must have every day essential

    Smaddi

    Beautiful moisturiser, my absolute must have. Glides on easily and absorbs fast. Great under makeup and for all skin types. Smells amazing too with the rose in it but it’s light.
  38. not my fave

    litia

    I have very dry/sometimes oily skin, and I found this kind of sat on top of my skin and didn't soak in as much as other alpha h moisturisers. It was a nice morning one on days when my skin was already in good shape, but didn't work for me when my skin was feeling particularly dehydrated.
  39. Smells great

    LB

    I generally love Alpha-H products, but I personally don’t find this moisturising enough for my combination skin, even with a face oil underneath. But it smells amazing and a little goes a long way. It would probably be great for people with oily skin!
  40. Heavy Cream

    Rach

    This is a luxurious cream, unfortunately wasn’t the right moisturiser for me. Smelt nice and think it’s good value for money , packaging is nice.
    I have combination skin and it was a little to heavy and caused my skin to be quite oily. Someone with normal/dry or dry skin this would work for
  41. Suprised by this its so good

    Ali

    I bought this for my daughter who has really sensitive skin but like others have said the smell was too overpowering for her. So I am using it and it is lovely. I am nearly fifty and have dry skin and this absorbs beautifully and my skin feels moisturised without feeling sticky. I have tried lots of moisturisers and settled on one that is twice the price of this so will now be switching.
  42. Good cream

    jen

    My skin becomes really moisturised and soft when I use this.
  43. Such a consistent product

    Bmac

    I love this moisturiser. It has been in my skin care routine for years. I have combination skin so this product is great. It is extremely light, non-greasy and absorbs quickly. I will sometimes use this under my daily SPF moisturizer if I'm feeling a little more hydration is needed.
  44. love this product!

    Bec

    My dry skin LOVES this product! Well worth the price! Its light and creamy with a slight scent but leaves my skin feeling VERY hydrated! A little bit of this product goes a long way so lasts forever! Would recommend and would buy again!
  45. Skin feels like silk!

    Bridgetleila

    The scent of this one is incredible and it leaves my skin feeling like silk. It doesn’t absorb straight away so I tend to only use this one at night after cleansing, however I wake up feeling hydrated and supple.
  46. Smells amazing

    Lauren

    This moisturiser smells amazing and has a thicker texture but leaves your skin super soft and plump, a little bit goes a long way also which is always nice
  47. Smells amazing

    Brooke

    I got a sample of this product a while ago, and it took a while to warm up to it. But boy, am I glad I did! It makes my skin feel super silky and hydrated. Highly recommend!

    tanya

    This is a really good cream and it leaves my skin super smooth and plump

    Great Moisturiser to nourish the skin without clogging pores, my make up glides on really well and I love the smooth texture of this product.

    Natii01

    I got this as a sample and tried it and surprisingly enjoyed it. I’m not one for scented products but this I found to be pleasant (I must be one of the few judging by other reviews). If you don’t like geranium as a scent you may not like this. The texture is medium/thick and felt nice in the evening before bed and also found I could use it in the morning underneath my make up without it affecting ...

    Alpha-H obsessed

    The product is really hydrating even after the first use it left mh skin super soft. Although the smell is a little overwhelming thankfully once applied you can’t smell it for too long
  53. Essential hydration!

    Lauren

    This product is just what is says it is. Necessary hydration. At first I wasn't the biggest fan of the smell (rose geranium) but it has definitely grown on me. This product is deeply hydrating and I use it when my skin is feeling super dry
  54. Nice product

    Emma Loves Skincare

    Lovely smell and texture and I love the new tube design! The old container was interesting but I didn't find it that efficient - I would always have to open up the jar to use the rest of the product up.
    My skin definitely feels very hydrated and it layers with other products really well. My only dislike is that I find it is quite expensive especially when I go through it quite quickly.

  55. Essential Hydration

    Jessica

    I think like all people, I appreciate the smell of great products, and this one is dreamy. I thought it would be too thick for my semi-oily skin but it's never felt better. I love how quickly it's absorbed into my skin, and it immediately feels hydrated and plumper after applying.
  56. Definitely not for me

    Debie

    I received a sample of this product with one of my purchases. As usual, I washed and toned my face, and then used this as a moisturiser. Sadly, this product was too thick and uncomfortable for my combination skin. However, I let it stay on my face the whole day to see if it changes anything, but my face was just oily and seemed to have attracted dirt.
  57. Very good

    Aline

    Beautiful moisturizer. Glides on easily and absorbs fast. Great under makeup and for all skin types. Smells amazing too with the rose in it but it’s light.
  58. Love the smell

    Kelsey

    I personally love the smell of this moisturiser, the texture and thickness is also great it makes me feel moisturised without feeling greasy.
  59. Not a fan

    CarlaNZ

    Nearly choked on the smell. Way over the top with the rose geranium. And it made my skin have a slight burning sensation. I don't have sensitive skin and have never reacted to a product in my life. Have to go wash this off now. The smell is giving me a headache.
  60. Beautiful

    Elisha

    This is a really lovely hydration cream. Also has a beautiful rose scent
  61. Average moisurizer

    Charlie

    Not a big fan of this. I have oilier skin so this product is too thick and greasy for me. Absorbs quickly but leaves a bad feeling on my skin
  62. Lightweight but effective

    Scastillo

    I love this moisterizer. It has been in my skin care routine for years. I have combination skin so this product is great. It is extremely lite, non-greasy and absorbs quickly. I will sometime use this under my daily SPF moisturizer if I'm feeling a little more hydration is needed.
  63. Super soft skin

    Ed

    This cream does exactly what it says, it hydrates my skin and leaves it feeling soft for the whole day.Love this brand!
  64. Nice moisturiser which absorbs quickly

    Alex

    This moisturiser works well for my combination skin. It works well under makeup and doesn’t pill either. It keeps annoying dry patches at bay, however, I think I won’t be enough for my skin type in winter. Will keep using this summer though.
  65. Great hydrating moisturiser

    Soph

    Love this product for my day time moisturiser. I have dry and dehydrate skin and this over the top of my day serums is perfect.
  66. Great

    Lisa

    This hydration cream helps to hydrate my skin. I use it every day and night. Definitely one of my favourite.
  67. Day cream + moisturiser in one

    sel

    This is a great cream for when I want my skin to feel instantly hydrated. It's not as heavy as some day creams, but much thicker than my daily moisturiser. Great 'in-between' product, would recommend to anyone with dry skin.
  68. Good all rounder

    Laura

    I love this cream. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and fresh. Prior to trying I was having dry skin issues on my forehead and nose, skin was literally flaking off. A combination of this and other products saw all those issues disappear. The scent is lovely- my boyfriend often comments I smell like a Turkish Delight! However when I first used this in a travel size it didn't contain the rose geran...

  69. Smells like luxury

    Kaylee

    I personally love the smell of this moisturiser however that’s about it. I find it’s not any better than something at a lower price point. It’s quite overpriced for what it is. I have oily skin and I did find this worked really well with my skin and I didn’t find it too heavy in the cooler seasons. I wouldn’t buy it again purely because of the price for what it is
  70. Simple hydration

    Shan

    I’m onto my third or fourth tube of this, it’s a lovely simple moisturiser.
  71. Love it!!

    C

    Absolutely love this cream! Extremely hydrating and smooths out fine lines and plumps my dehydrated skin
  72. Hydration gold!

    Renee D

    I’ve been using the Alpha-H products for awhile now and I love them. My skin has been the best it has ever been. This hydration cream does exactly that and it smells divine. I’m also extremely glad they’ve moved to this tube from the previous packaging as the old containers stopped working as well.
    This is perfect for hydrating skin and keeping it fresh.
  73. A Must Have

    Tonia

    I have been looking for the perfect moisturiser for so long and have finally found it in the Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream. I use this day and night, over the top of serums and underneath sunscreen and it keeps my skin hydrated all day. A little goes a long way, my skin feels soft and matte after applying and I never get that oily feeling like I have with so many other moisturisers.
  74. A good & affordable option for dry skin

    Kiah

    This use to be my first choice moisturiser and I have used it for some years now. It has a lovely thick application, which I like in a moisturiser, and is quite hydrating for my really dry skin.

I now use this consistently morning and night throughout the year ( except the nights I use treatments). ...

    Fiona

    Excellent moisturiser that is light to apply but enough to work. My moisturiser of choice.
  89. Excellent Hydration

    Cherie

    I first tried this as a sample and was sold the first time that I tried it. It is now my 'go to' moisturiser. It is so hydrating, it absorbs so quickly and easily into your skin and smells amazing. It is an excellent base for makeup or just as it is. I have recently turned 50, so was thinking that I may need something a bit more intense but this does it all. Perfect - love it!
  90. Prefer as a Day Moisturiser

    McLemon

    This moisturiser is promoted as being very hydrating, but I actually find it to be quite light weight. This is a good day moisturiser for me, at night I prefer something heavier. I like this product, it is not irritating and is good for sensitive skin types.
  91. decent cream

    Lily

    This is a nice, decent cream but I have tried better
  92. Very nice

    Britt

    Christine

    Not the most luxurious night cream I have used, but not a bad effort. The scent however I find too strong and is the main reason I would no repurchase.
  96. Good

    Sarah

    This is a very moisturising cream and leaves my skin very soft. However I am not a fan of the essential oils in it
  97. Favorite moisturiser

    Noor

    The texture is somewhat thick but it applies smoothly and is easily absorbed. I like the scent. It’s a pleasure to use. I probably use too much as I enjoy it that much, but it doesn’t clog up my pores or cause oiliness.
