Most Helpful Positive

So hydrating!


My friend got my on to this moisturiser and I love it! I use this for my daily night cream- it makes my skin feel super hydrated, soft and feels light on my skin. I will continue using this product as it’s doing a great job for my sensitive skin.

Most Helpful Criticism

decent cream


This is a nice, decent cream but I have tried better
  1. Hydrating with strong scent


    I have dry skin, which often gets eczema flair ups and I have found this cream quite helpful. It didn’t cause a break out and goes on beautifully. Not too thick but kept my skin hydrated. Leaves my skin feeling beautiful. Also not too overpriced which helps a lot. However, it has a strong rose scent which, as someone who usually goes for an unscented product, was rather overwhelming. Still deciding if I would repurchase!

  3. the one !


    I struggled for years and years to find a moisturiser that worked for me. I never used one consistently or finished one that I bought until I found this one a couple of years ago. I tried a friends and could not get over the rose smell and the texture and bought it and have used it ever since. I now use this consistently morning and night throughout the year ( except the nights I use treatments). I always found others to feel oily especially in summer, but not this one.
    I am glad they have changed the packaging though as the push top jars always became blocked for me half way through which was super annoying.
  4. Great


    This is a great moisturiser for the morning as it is not heavy and it leaves my skin looking good and hydrated
  5. Rose-y


    The perfect amount of moisture for me. Not overly fragrant, very pleasant smell, not heavy either. Goes well under makeup and good as a nighttime cream
  6. Nice moisturiser


    A very nice smoothing moisturising cream which really does help hydrate the skin, It's great as a basic moisturiser, and can be used day and night, on your face and neck.
  7. Absolutely love it


    I love this product. My all time favourite. Leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated. I use it twice a day, i like it so much. I love the alpha H range.
  8. God send!


    Been using this for a while and my skins never been better, I thought I’d give another moisturiser a try to see if it was just my skin or hormones being good, but sure enough my skin became greasier and I came out in little pimples.

    If you want some extra hydration I strongly recommend a serum underneath, I look forward to using their vitamin C but at the moment am using Glory Oil by eco tan.

    Only downside is the bottle is so small! 50ml lasts me maybe a month and a half, really wish they’d make a supersize or just make it a bit bigger!
  9. Essential Cream


    this cream is good to use morning or night it is very hydrating for the skin! it helped with a few of my dry patches!
  10. My all time fave moisturiser


    I have used this product for years and after stopping for a while to try new things I quickly returned to my old fave!! Nothing compared! It's so hydrating and calming - love it!
    My skin was feeling dry and patchy until I got back onto this and literally within 2 days it was under control. I'll never change again!!!
  11. Perfect - love it!


    This leaves my skin so soft and smooth. Very hydrating beautiful light weight non-irritant moisturiser and smells absolutely divine.
  12. pretty good


    a gentle cream with nice smell. suitable for summer times
  13. Great unfussy moisturiser


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


    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!
  15. Prefer as a Day Moisturiser


    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.
  16. decent cream


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


    I've only used a sample of this cream but the sample lasted about 5 applications.
    It's a thick cream but absorbs quickly. It smells lovely & my skin felt wonderful even after the first use.
  18. Good


    This leaves my skin so soft and smooth. Very hydrating
  19. Just amazing


    This product is a beautiful light weight non-irritant moisturiser and smells absolutely divine.
  20. Hydrating cream


    i like this hydrating cream helps with dry patches on the face! very moisturising only need a little bit!
  21. Ok night cream


    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.
  22. Good


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


    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.
  24. LOVE


    This moisturizer literally saved my life, i have such dry and eczema prone skin but this helps soothe and re-hydrate amazingly, couldn't recommend enough!
  25. Love it


    Very hydrating & thick without feeling too heavy. Great under makeup too
  26. Nice moisturiser but strongly scented


    I like the texture of this moisturiser, and I'm always excited to find a moisturiser without shea or alcohol. The only thing that lets it down is the strong scent. I have to avoid this moisturiser if my skin isfeeling sensitised for any reason. It's a shame as the scent is in no way required.
  27. Nice Moisturiser


    Leaves my skin soft, smooth and hydrated. My skin has never been more healthy than when using this and the other Alpha-H products.
  28. Love it


    This moisturiser is by far my favourite. I'm in my mid 20's with combination/oily skin. This moisturiser doesn't make my skin oily however hydrates it and leaves my skin feeling smooth. Sits really well under foundation. Also smells amazing! You only need a small amount and it lasts for ages. Definitely recommend!
  29. Thick


    Quite a thick formula. Very effective on dry skin to lock in moisture. Unfortunately has a fragrance that some may not like.
  30. Glides On!


    I first tried this in a sample, and fell in love with it. It glides on beautifully and the smell is beautiful. I love using this product everyday, under my make up its perfect. Gives me just enough hydration, not drying at all.
  31. Year round perfect moisturiser!


    I've been using this for a number of years now and it's a product I never want to run out of! I have combination skin, some of which is dehydrated from years of harsh acne treatments. This moisturiser is ideal for providing richness to dry areas without making my t-zone oily.
  32. Perfect for winter


    I love this for winter or colder months when my oily skin gets dehydrated, this is rich but doesn't leave my skin feeling oily. My skin looks instantly healthier after putting it on.
  33. very nice cream


    A very nice, a lovely texture that feels very nice on the skin, leaving it hydrated and feeling comfortable, ready for the application of makeup. A very nice day cream
  34. hydrating but strong fragrance!


    unsure about this one, it feels nice on the face however it smells very strong of perfume! unsure how good that would be for the skin..
  35. Meh


    Wanted to love this product as my sister raves about it but I just don't think this product was for me. I am currently on roacctutane which leaves my skins pretty thirsty and dry. It soaks in well and has a nice scent but within half an hour my skin felt tight and dry. A very thin cream and doesn't take long to use if you need more moisture like me.
  36. I love it!!


    I received a sample of this product and i liked it so much i decided to switch.
    I love the feel of the cream, it's soft and hydrating.
    Also love the rose smell!
  37. Fantastic Hydration cream


    I first tried this in a sample, and fell in love with it. It glides on beautifully and the smell is beautiful. I love using this product everyday, under my make up its perfect. Gives me just enough hydration, not drying at all.
  38. Beautiful hydrating cream that instantly makes your skins feel supple and soft!


    I love this as my day cream! I have sensitive combination skin that has dried out a lot this winter and this has completely fixed it! It feels so lush to apply and has a nice texture, it's hydrating without making my skin oily and sinks beautifully into my skin leaving it soft and supple. The rose geranium scent was a little strong at first but I quite enjoy it now.
  39. Good


    The rose scent is beautiful too! I was using it at night and now it's my daily morning and evening. No oiliness and keeps the dryness away which is an effort and a half when you're cabin crew!
  40. Fabulous day cream


    I was looking for something that was moisturising but not too heavy, and I have found it in this beauty. Perfect weight and wears well under makeup. It’s even started clearing up some of my horrible dry skin. I would strongly recommend to anyone seeking a new moisturiser!
  41. Where has this moisturiser been?


    Thanks to Adore Beauty's free sample, I overcame the rose scent to try this delightful wondercream. You will quickly get used to the rose geranium as this light, whipped emulsion melts into your skin. Really, I have not tried a finer moisturiser, and I've been trying a lot in the cooler weather. My teenage daughter loves it too, so I had to buy two.
  42. Nice feel but not for me


    Lovely formula but the fragrance seems to leave my skin looking red and stinging slightly. Currently using it as a treat for my hands. Not sure I would recommend to anyone with sensitive skin.
  43. Great


    I find this moisturiser hydrating and not too heavy. Sinks in easily. Great for daytime or nightime. Works well with the rest of the line.
  44. Perfect day cream


    An absolutely beautiful moisturiser, sits really nicely under SPF during the day or works nicely as lighter night cream in the summer.


    As I have a little sensitive and redness skincare I found this cream very soothing, and the smell is lovely.
    You don't need much as it goes along way also very hydrating
  46. My go to


    My skin was so dry before using this product. This is now my go to cream.
  47. Perfect everyday moisturiser


    Really light on the skin, not greasy but it keeps my skin subtle.


    This is really good for my sensitive skin its very light and very hydrating.
  49. Amazing product


    I absolutely love this product. It hydrates my skin perfectly and makes it feel so lovely and soft. 10/10 recommend this product. No other moisturiser compares for me
  50. Amazing!


    This is such a nice moisturiser. I use this one at night time as it has no SPF, and it is absolutely amazing! Smells incredible and is so light and smooth on application.
  51. Very hydrating


    Had used this product for 5+ years. It is very hydrating and leaves the skin feeling supple and fresh.
  52. Everything a moisturiser should be


    I have combination skin and use this at night. It calms whilst hydrating and is especially good during winter when my skin gets distressed due to weather changes and office environments!
  53. Great for dehydrated and sensitive areas


    I got this as part of an Alpha H kit and really enjoy using it parts of my face which need a bit of moisture kick (around the mouth and eyes). It's actually a splendid eye cream and I had no irritation. I also quite like the rose scent but that's a matter of taste

    Would not use this all over my face as it's too thick, but it blends well with other alpha h creams. Also good for sunburn or after mirconeedling
  54. Smooth and light


    I wanted to try a light moisturiser to wear under sunscreen . This suits my sensitive skin and does smooth and hydrate. Works well as a base before applying other products .


    I found this moisturiser really hydrating and not heavy or oily at all.
    I love the rose scent its not overpowering but smells so lovely!
    I really liked the dispenser container also but it does make it hard to get the last little bits out of it.
    Would recommend.
  56. favourite Moisturiser


    Absolutely love this product. I use it morning and night.
    My skin is never too oily or dry. would recommend it to anyone with combination skin
  57. Fabulous Product


    This is by far the best moisturiser I have ever used. Really suits my combination skin without any increase in oily T-zone. Great in winter and summer and really hydrating.
    Would definitely recommend this product.
  58. Lightweight and dewy


    Favourite moisturiser by far. It feels so lightweight going on, but packs a serious punch. Leaves my skin supple and smooth, perfect level of hydration to leave my skin as is or apply makeup over the top. 10/10!
  59. Great to use when flying


    Keeps my skin nice and hydrated on a long haul flight. It's a must-have for travel.
  60. Smells lovely and goes on so smooth


    This cream is rich but also light enough to wear during the day.
    It smells divine and goes on really easily and is absorbed quickly (not oily!)
    Love using it
  61. Amazing


    Leaves your face feeling smooth and tight.
    Definitely can tell a difference in my skin.
  62. Plump and perfect


    Together with the Alpha H liquid gold, the essential hydration cream has changed my face. It has a light rose fragrance, it hydrates and makes my skin feels soft smooth and plump without feeling too oily or slick.
  63. Soft and smooth skin


    I find this moisturiser nourishing and softening. It absorbs nicely and is not drying on my middle age drying skin.
    The rose scent is strong initially but dissipates quickly.
    Will definitely buy again.
  64. Love it!


    A super soft and nourishing cream that instantly restores my dry skin by boosting it's mositure levels, making it look and feel super hydrated and glowy!
  65. Like a drink for my skin!


    I received a 7mL sample of this and really loved it! I have combination skin and it settled beautifully into my skin everywhere on my face. It has a bit of a different texture than other creams, possibly from high glycerin content, but that made it go on super smoothly and it was a nice base for makeup. A little went a long way and the sample lasted for over a week (usually twice daily on a few occasions as well). The only thing I didn’t like about it was the rose scent, but it’s subtle.
  66. Great


    I have dry skin and I love this moisturizer for everyday use. Worth it
  67. Great


    I have been using this product for over 2 years now and I love it. It doesn't cause flare ups of my rosacea and leaves my skin feeling great
  68. Nice every day foundation for combo skin


    I have dry skin and this moisturizer is a nice light one to use during the day in summer under makeup. I love the smell and the texture and I like the packaging which pumps out product through a hole in the top in the middle so you don't waste any and don't have to stick your fingers into a pot. I would say that I do still need to use a richer more hydrating moisturizer at night to supplement this one, but I think it is a good price point and I will probably repurchase again in summer,
  69. Lovely scent and super luxe hydration


    I received a couple of samples of this moisturiser and love it’s rose scent! I used it after trying liquid gold for the first time and it immediately soothes and hydrated my skin. I had no redness or tingling after applying this. I found this super plumping and comforting. A great moisturiser for post Liquid Gold application or under makeup! I have fine lines and acne marks and this moisturiser improved my skin!
  70. Good Active Moisturiser


    I have really sensitive/dry skin with occasional redness so finding the right moisturiser is crucial!
    I love this one, it’s really juicy and hydrating and leaves the skin feeling soft but it’s not too heavy.

    Really great active cream for day and night.
  71. Worth it


    I received a sample of this moisturiser and it is divine. It smells beautiful and is so hydrating. I would definitely purchase the full size.
  72. Beautiful Moisturizer


    I received a mini of this as a gift with purchase and I will be purchasing the full size. It is rich, creamy and smells gorgeous. Went beautifully over my the Ordinary serums. Love this!
  73. Sample - nice moisturiser


    Received a sample of this with my last order. Love that the sample was big enough to get a few uses out of it. Really nice hydrating moisturiser. Perfect for people with dry skin. Its not light weight its on the thicker side but really left my skin feeling nice. Also love that the scent was very light and almost had no scent at all.
  74. Plump and hydrated skin


    Used this after cleansing my face this morning for the first time and immediately my skin felt really plump and hydrated. It has a thick white gel/cream consistency which is pleasant and melts as you apply to your face. It had MINIMAL scent (very light) which I loved.
  75. Light and long lasting


    This moisturiser stays on my face all day yet is so light on my skin. It has an amazing smell to it and my skin has never looked so good
  76. Finally found my favourite face cream


    I have oily combination skin so it has been hard to find a moistures that hydrates the dry parts of my face but doesn’t make my oily areas very oily. I always feel hydrated after applying and it dries straight away leaving no residue. I am now on my 3rd one and that is saying something for me
  77. Great for Added Hydration!


    I love this product - It is super hydrating and my skin soaks it up, as if it's giving it a drink of water. I love that it is full of high quality ingredients that really has improved the quality and texture of my skin. I love to use this as a night cream so it can work it's magic overnight.
  78. Not sure


    I LOVE many of Alpha H’s products but this wasn’t great for me. The scent is very strong, but I could deal with that if it worked. It feels almost a bit drying for me however and even though I really want to like it, it doesn’t seem to be a good match for my skin as I’m prone to patchy dry spots.
  79. Good


    I have been using this product for over 2 years now and I love it. It doesn't cause flare ups of my rosacea and leaves my skin feeling great.
  80. Beautiful


    I have normal skin, I have been using this morning and night, it has a nice rich consistency but isn’t to heavy for me, it sits went under my makeup.
    This moisturiser smells absolutely beautiful, I would highly recommend it.
  81. Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream


    I have combination skin and this product is great for my skin type. The cream is lightweight and I use it once a day after using the balancing cleanser. The scent is lovely also.
  82. Absolutely beautiful


    I received a sample of this moisturiser and it is divine. It smells beautiful and is so hydrating. I would definitely purchase the full size.
  83. Devine scent


    I have combination skin and just started using AH Liquid gold. I purchased this as I was a little worried that the LG would make my skin to dry. The cream is thick and has a lovely rose scent. I find it too heavy for daytime use and if I apply it to my skin while my face is still warm from a shower, it sweats off and doesn’t absorb. I wait to apply it just before I sleep and then I have no issues. It’s been a month and I have haven’t had any breakouts and I don’t feel oily or greasy.
  84. Moisture-rich face cream!


    Super hydrating face cream! It has a unique pump system which makes it easy to apply :)
  85. Awesome


    Absolutely love this product. It's moisturising enough to calm my dry spots but not too thick for my oily T-Zone. This is my go to moisturiser.
  86. Highly recommend


    Am extremely happy with this cream. I have super sensitive skin and need a lot of hydration at times and this cream works wonders for my skin. I absolutely love the rose scent also.
  87. Smells beautiful


    This smells beautiful and feels divine on my face - nice soothing relaxing scents and smells before bed
  88. Favourite Face Cream, Crappy Pump


    I got a sample of this with a previous order and I loved it immediately so I bought it as soon as I could afford it. I never spend this much on face cream but this one was worth it. My skin feels amazing and has never felt better. Although the pump is a nightmare. I have to press it many times to get even a small bit out. It's as if its near on empty which I hope it isn't since I've only just bought it. But the cream is perfection. I hope they bring a bigger one out in a pump bottle like the cleansers are in.
  89. Amazing!


    I’m obsessed with all things Alpha-H so it’s no surprise this moisturiser was amazing.
    I loveee the scent, it lingers beautifully for a few hours after application.
    It’s so silky smooth and is perfect for my sensitive skin. I use it morning and night and have noticed a huge difference in my skin texture and brightness.
    My boyfriend keeps stealing it so it must be good!
  90. Great


    This sits so well on my face; so hydrating and perfect under my foundation.
  91. Great product


    I tend to get dry skin, however ever since using the essential hydration moisturiser my skin is soft with no dry patches in sight. It’s gentle & hydrating just as described and perfect for my sensitive skin
  92. Nice moisturing cream


    I use it during the day as found it light and non greasy. Perfect under makeup. Small amount goes a long way. It makes my skin hydrated and soft. Great for the sensitive skin. It smells nice but I would prefer less fragrance.
  93. Love this!


    This is a beautiful product; easily absorbed & smells devine!
    I have used this product for a while now & it never disappoints.
    The actual dispenser is disappointing though; you get half way through & it stops working, as the level of product has dropped below ... you need to unscrew the top & retrieve your cream.
  94. Nice but not amazing


    I liked this product the first few times I used it but after a while it just left my skin still a little dry. It’s definitely a lighter moisturiser- probably good for day wear.
  95. Nice product, shame about the packaging


    Recently purchased this product after really liking the sample. It is thick but I like that as my skin is quite dehydrated. Unfortunately I really dislike the packaging - the pump is really annoying. It takes a number of pumps to get the right amount of moisturiser for me. The product is very nice, just wish it was in a normal package ie not a pump style.
  96. This cream is amazing


    This cream is so good and smells amazing.

    I have combination type skin that sometimes feels a little dry. This cream although its consistency is thick soaks right in and removes that dry feeling.

    It doesnt feel thick or too overpowering once it's on.

    I would definitely recommend this cream and the whole Alpha H range!
  97. Simple but effective


    This is a lovely moisturiser that I use in the am as it’s not super active ( I like to use all the active stuff at night) yet it’s very hydrating & find my make up glides on beautifully afterwards.
  98. Good hydration


    This is a good simple hydrating cream. Didnt notice a huge difference in the long term look of my skin but while using it skin felt nice and hydrated.
  99. Hydrating


    I liked this cream a lot just not for day use in the QLD heat. It’s very hydrating I have really dry skin so this really helped.
  100. Hydrating

    Helen S

    A thicker cream, i used nightly as it felt a little heavy for daytime in the hot humid QLD weather. would use it daytime in winter. Certainly lives up to the name... Essential Hydration.
