Most Helpful Positive



Wasn't expecting to love this, but have found it wonderful. Does the job, goes on nice and smooth. I don't find the scent overpowering. The price point is also great. Will buy again.

Most Helpful Criticism

Good value, soaks in well


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. Good solid moisturiser for normal skin


    Good overall moisturiser, probably not hydrating enough for my dry skin in winter. But my sister loved it!
  2. Great!


    Wasn't expecting to love this, but have found it wonderful. Does the job, goes on nice and smooth. I don't find the scent overpowering. The price point is also great. Will buy again.
  3. A favourite moisturiser


    This is a light cream that absorbs well. I like the subtle fragrance. Good as a base for my foundation as well. Helps with my dry patches.
  4. Go-to night cream

    Maria R

    This has been my staple night cream for a few years now. It smells great and keeps my skin hydrated. I do need a bit extra in winter so I usually use it in conjunction with a face oil.
  5. Good every day hydration for skin


    I use this under my primer, just to add some hydration to my ageing skin. I don't mind the rose smell but it is slightly reminiscent of my granny! I like the fact that as it has no spf it doesn't clog my pores and I can use something else with SPF over the top of it
  6. Not amazing

    Bryony Liquorish

    I brought this cream about two years ago and loved it. Repurchased thinking it would do the same however the consistency is quite thin now and does not feel hydrating at all. Not really anything special about it.
  7. My fave night moisturiser of all time!!

    Tara Harvey

    I have sensitive skin and love this on my skin at night, it is not too heavy for me but I feel hydrated in the morning
  8. Great product


    This product aborbs quickly, smells amazing, and you only need a tiny amount! I've definitely noticed a more hydrated feel and appearance since introducing this product to my skincare regime.
  9. Light and hydrating


    So nice and smooth to apply and absorbs quickly while leaving my face fresh. Just love the texture and how light weight it is on your skin without leaving it shiny or oily at all. Will continue to re-purchase over and over.
  10. Nice moisturiser but smell is too strong


    I really like the thickness of the moisturiser and how it applied. It is great for everyday but I just cannot get over the harsh rose smell. It is extremely overpowering so for that reason, I will not repurchase. Definitely recommend if you don't mind strong rose smelling products.
  11. Great


    Hydrates my skin well and is a good price
  12. Good hydrating serum


    Hydrating like it claims to be. Does not irritate my sensitive skin too! In love
  13. Great for my combination skin and really hydrating and last a long time


    Great for my combination skin and really hydrating and last a long time, you only need a little bit every time
  14. Great Moisturiser


    I only just got this but so far so good. I love the scent, it's light and feels fresh. I haven't reacted to it and it is nice under make-up. I'm happy I tried this. It maynot cut it in winter but it is a lovely Moisturiser.
  15. Beautiful smell


    This cream has such a fresh, beautiful smell. It’s a great consistency and you don’t need a lot. I just find the price point a bit high
  16. The name says it all - Essential Hydration


    I have highly sensitive skin and am allergic to most make-up and skin products. Alpha H is the only skincare range I have been able to use without having a red allergic reaction to the products. I love the Essential Hydration cream and use it morning and night. It leaves my skin is moisturised and soft. Love it!
  17. Love this moisturiser!


    This moisturiser works well with my combination skin, it's perfect for both morning and evening without being too heavy but being nourishing. Smells great, favourite alpha-h product!
  18. Perfect


    My new essential moisturizer. I use this during day and night- it is the perfect consistency not too thick and not too thin, it sinks into the skin and truly hydrates from within. My dry areas are gone and my oily T zone does not get more oily, I cant put in words how good this is
  19. Lightweight and nourishing


    Super lightweight, great day time moisturiser. Really nice light scent to it as well.
  20. Really love this brand


    I use this as my night cream and add in retinol drops from the ordinary. This product smells amazing and my skin absorbs it. It doesn't feel oily, and I wake up with fresh skin
  21. Nice Moisturiser


    This hydrates the skin nicely and seeps into the skin fast rather than sitting on top. It doesnt make you oily and is nice a light, great for night time hydration - as it doesnt have spf in it. I love it.
  22. nice morning moisturiser


    The moisturiser isn't too thick so it sinks nicely into the skin and works well under makeup.
  23. 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.
  24. great


    this moisturiser is great for reducing redness and irritated and sensitive skin
  25. Lightweight and soft

    Mel J

    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.
  26. Great!


    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.
  27. great


    Helps calm irritated and sensitive skin
  28. So nourishing


    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
  29. Good value, soaks in well


    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.
  30. Moisturising but expensive


    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.
  31. Will repurchase


    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.
  32. Bit of a miss for me


    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.
  33. Feels nice, strong smell


    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.
  34. hydrating


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


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


    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.
  37. Soft cream


    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!
  38. Beautifully hydrating


    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
  39. Great morning moisturizer


    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
  40. Its ok!


    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.
  41. Light and fresh


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


    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
  43. Hydrating and calming


    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.

  44. Nice texture, not so nice scent


    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.
  45. hydrating


    This is a lovely cream for winter. It has rich consistency and really moisturizes your skin in winter.
  46. 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 ...

  47. Makes skin feel smooth and calm


    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
  48. A staple


    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.
  49. Gorgeous scent


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


    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.

  51. Essential and hydrates!


    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.
  52. Soothing and hydrating


    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
  53. Nice texture, but rubs in well- overall good product


    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
  54. Dry skin must have


    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.
  55. It is a nice cream


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


    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.
  57. Smell reminds me of Grandma


    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
  58. 2nd purchase


    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.
  59. Lightweight and Soothing


    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.
  60. My must have every day essential


    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.
  61. not my fave


    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.
  62. Smells great


    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!
  63. Heavy Cream


    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
  64. Suprised by this its so good


    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.
  65. Good cream


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


    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.
  67. love this product!


    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!
  68. Skin feels like silk!


    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.
  69. Smells amazing


    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
  70. Smells amazing


    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!
  71. Moisture


    This is a really good cream and it leaves my skin super smooth and plump
  72. Very Nourishing


    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.
  73. Very Nourishing


    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.
  74. Nice cream


    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 ...

  75. So hydrating

    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
  76. Essential hydration!


    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
  77. 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.

  78. Essential Hydration


    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.
  79. Definitely not for me


    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.
  80. Very good


    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.
  81. Love the smell


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


    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.
  83. Beautiful


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


    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
  85. Lightweight but effective


    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.
  86. Super soft skin


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


    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.
  88. Good


    This is a great moisturiser for hydration.
  89. Great hydrating moisturiser


    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.
  90. Great


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


    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.
  92. Good all rounder


    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...

  93. Smells like luxury


    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
  94. Simple hydration


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


    Absolutely love this cream! Extremely hydrating and smooths out fine lines and plumps my dehydrated skin
  96. 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.
  97. A Must Have


    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.
  98. A good & affordable option for dry skin


    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 have since splurged and have been using Aspect Phytostat 9 moisturiser and find the feeling of application very similar however it feels much more hydrating (my skin is very dry). This is however a great...

  100. 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 decidin...
