It’s the perfect choice for reactive and sensitive skin types. Whether you’re looking to restore suppleness and vitality to ageing skin or calm an irritated complexion, Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream is a skin saviour.

The aromatherapy benefit has a grounding effect on the central nervous system, making this a soothing and favourable scent for everyday use.

Who should use Alpha-H Essential Cleansing Balm?

Essential Hydration Cream is best for those who want maximum hydration for dry and dehydrated skin. This cream is also suitable for those with sensitive and irritated complexions, as the Essential Fatty Acids help soothe and heal. Essential Hydration Cream has anti-ageing properties and helps promote collagen production, so it’s perfect for those whose skin has become drier in their later years.


What skin type is best suited to Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream?

Essential Hydration Cream has been developed for dry skin. This cream contains a deeply hydrating blend of essential oils and essential fatty acids to help nourish dry and dehydrated skin. Due to the high levels of oils and fatty acids in Essential Hydration Cream, the product isn’t best for oily skin types, as it can be too heavy on the skin.


If you have dry, irritated, or sensitive skin, Essential Hydration Cream is a great choice for a day and night moisturiser. The blend of Evening Primrose Oil, minerals, and essential fatty acids delivers immediate relief. Essential Hydration Cream is free of AHAs, so it won’t cause further irritation.

Lovely moisturiser - 14-08-2018 by

I am a really huge fan of Alpha H and this mostursier is one of my favourites, I have oily skin but this winter it has been so dehydrated and this has helped a lot to put moisture back into my skin. It’s also one I have bought for my mother and sister who are both dry skin types and they both love it. The price point is also great

Lovely moisturiser - 14-08-2018 by

My skin which is starting to show signs of aging loved this cream! Even though I'm in my mid 40's, I still have combination skin which gets oily through my T zone, particularly during warmer months. I used this cream as a night moisturiser as it was a bit heavy for me for during the day, and I certainly noticed a difference in my skin, in that it was smoother, the skin tone was more even, and it even helped with the fine lines that are starting to appear. I also loved the rose geranium scent - overall a really lovely product!

BEST - 13-08-2018 by

I have normal to oily skin and prone to break outs! i have used so many different creams over the years and it always leaves my face looking really oily by the end of the day or when i work out, it gets really sweat quickly cause the cream hasn't absorbed quick enough. adore beauty sent me a sample of this cream and i am loving it. i had a few different samples collected over different orders so i am using those before i actually purchase but it definitely will be on my next order . my skin feels fresh and so smooth.. not heavy or oily at all

Overpowering - 13-08-2018 by

I received this product as a sample along with my other Alpha H products so was keen to try. Unfortunately I found this product very underwhelming. The perfume is overpowering and felt it almost making me queasy. After applying my skin felt gritty and tacky. I cannot comment on long term benefits but definately didn’t do anything for me.

Skin love - 09-08-2018 by

This cream is very good! I use it as a night cream and in the morning the skin is so smooth and hydrated. The smell is a little bit weird for me. The pump is so comfortable to use. Totally recommend this cream for every skin type

Leaves skin soft - 09-08-2018 by

Received as sample so used about three times. Used overnight and left skin soft in the morning.

Ultra Hydrating! - 08-08-2018 by

I am in love with this product! It gives instant hydration and makes my skin look and feel nourished, glowing and plump. It glides on smoothly and doesn't feel sticky or oily. I love to wear it overnight as a night cream and also undeneath my foundation to give it a nice dewy look. Highly recommend!

Very hydrating, smells a treat - 07-08-2018 by

I bought this cream after receiving a sample in my last Adore order. It smells lovely, goes on quite smooth and has a very hydrating effect. I have oily-ish skin, so my only issue is that if you put a little bit too much on it can really clog your pores; a little goes a long way.

I have oily skin and love this moisturiser! - 06-08-2018 by

I received this cream in a sample pack and as with all Alpha H samples there was enough for several applications.
I found this moisturiser to feel great on my combination skin (oily t zone & dry cheeks), it has a lovely smell and feels quite thick.
It might be due to other products I use & because I was using this cream at night, but it didn't seem to cause any outbreaks or excess oil.
I will be purchasing the full size once my current night cream runs out. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful product - 31-07-2018 by

Hi brought this cream after reading all the amazing reviews. It definitely hasn’t disappointed- absolutely beautiful. Makes my skin feel so soft and hydrated without the heaviness and oiliness. Super impressed by the price too!

AMAZING - 27-07-2018 by

I received this product as a sample and have been using it for the last week and by god it is amazing! the smell is amazing! and when you apply it applies so smoothly and evenly. It will leave your skin feeling soft and ever so moisturised. I would 100% recommend this product for anyone who has dry skin. I apply it every night and morning and don't find it too heavy for the day. Its honestly amazing


I have used Alpha H for years and this is my holy grail moisturizer! I have combination skin that is dehydrated and this moisturizer sinks in and leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated all day. My favourite!

This used to be my go-to! - 25-07-2018 by

I have always recommended this cream to my friends and family and I have purchased many times... BUT they added Rose Geranium and I can no longer use it. The rose scent is so strong I can't handle it. It is a great cream, very hydrating but if you are sensitive to smell then i wouldn't recommend. I miss the original formula.. it smelt like a day spa! :(

Feels amazing and perfect makeup base - 24-07-2018 by

I have combo skin (more towards normal at the moment, but a little oily and dry some days) and I love this moisturiser, it's just too pricey for me at the moment. It's so soothing at night time after exfoliating, and a perfect makeup base before foundation, you can skip the primer with this one.

Soothing - 24-07-2018 by

A wonderful soothing cream for dry and sensitised skin. My combination skin became quite reactive and irritated after over exfoliating and this cream has played a major part in calming and rehydrating my skin. Smells pleasant (not too overpowering of florals), soaks in well, love the container to dispense only what’s needed (avoiding contamination to the remaining product).

Best moisturiser for dry skin! - 23-07-2018 by

I have very dry, sensitive skin and this moisturiser absolutely works wonders for my skin! I have used it for quite sometime now but had a break where I used other moisturisers. I noticed recently that due to the cold weather my skin was beginning to go flaky. After a couple of nights of using this again my skin is much more hydrated!! Definitely recommend this product!

YES! - 17-07-2018 by

its official - I am Alpha-H OBSESSED!!!!!!! cannot fault this product at all. especially great in winter to sooth that dry winter skin.

Hydrating, light and amazing! - 17-07-2018 by

This moisturiser is definitely my must have for morning and evening! Really smooth, hydrating and light. I’m in my mid 20’s with oily skin in the warmer months and dry skin in the cooler months, and this moisturiser is perfect all year round for me. Doesn’t feel heavy after applying and sits really nice under my makeup. Definitely recommend!

beautiful hydrating cream - 17-07-2018 by

This cream was a dream to use, smells beautiful and has a light but hydrating texture. Definitely recommend.

Super hydrating - 13-07-2018 by

This product does exactly what it claims to do! I use it every night and no longer have the feeling of dry skin when I wake up.

Hydrating - 12-07-2018 by

I like the richness of this cream and how hydrating it is since I have really dry skin. But unfortunately, I couldn't get past the smell. The rose smell is extremely overpowering to the extent it has started giving me the sniffles and an allergic reaction. I will definitely recommend this cream if you're not sensitive to strong smells.

Smooth and hydrating! - 11-07-2018 by

This came as a free sample and I quite liked it. I used it as part of my night time regime. It is quite light and left my face feeling soft and hydrated. I was actually looking for a new bedtime moisturiser at the time but decided against purchasing this as it was not recommended for oily skin, which I often suffer from. Would recommend for normal or dry skin though!

Hydrating goodness - 09-07-2018 by

Highly recommend this product! I have quite dry skin and this cream is super hydrating and plumping. I would recommend using this at night rather than the morning as it is quite thick and is a little too much to then put makeup over the top of.

My go to daily moisturiser - 07-07-2018 by

I love this hydration cream, I use it daily, sometimes twice daily if I am feeling a little dry or just need a moisture refresh. Essential Hydration Cream is the perfect name for this product.

Great... but pricey - 06-07-2018 by

I really liked this moisturiser. It was light enough that I could put makeup straight on top of it, but had enough oomph to it that my skin felt nourished throughout the day. I'd definitely recommend it as a day cream rather than a night cream though for this reason. The smell was lightly fragrant, and the container was easy to use (although towards the end I did have to open it up as it clogged. My only qualm is the price... I felt like I went through the tub really quickly, even though I applied as directed :(

Wanted to love it but it just didn’t work on my skin - 02-07-2018 by

I have very normal skin but it can get dehydrated from working inside everyday under heaters and air conditioners, so I wanted a lighter moisturiser for during the day that would keep me hydrated but not oily looking. I’ve never had sensitive skin or skin prone to breaking out however using this moisturiser gave me a slight burning feeling around my nose and chin and I broke out like I was a teenager. At first I thought it was because I had introduced glycolic acid into my skin routine around the same time I started using this but after nearly two months of thinking my skin was “purging” I stopped using this moisturiser and my skin cleared up within a week and has never looked better. I’m disappointed because I really wanted to love this but it just wasn’t for me. After doing a Google search I did find only a few reviews where the person had the same reaction so obviously not a common thing to happen. However it does smell great and feels great on the skin (except for the slight burn), it’s not too heavy.

Hydrating - 29-06-2018 by

A light moisturiser that absorbs into the skin seamlessly. Perfect under makeup. Has made my skin feel plump and less inflamed. Not a huge fan of the dispenser. Would love to see the product sold in a larger quantity. All in all, a great product for all skin types!

So hydrating - 25-06-2018 by

This moisturiser is so soft and kind on the skin and you can see the benefits almost straight away! It goes on so easily and you only need a small amount. Beautiful product!

Nice - 25-06-2018 by

A hydration cream that does exactly that. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin like others can and it soaks in well so no issues with applying makeup on top.

Moisturising but a bit rich! - 19-06-2018 by

I found this moisturiser to be very moisturising, which is great in winter, however it is quite thick and because I have a tendency to break out it is too thick for my acne-prone skin. However it does leave my skin feeling really soft and moisturised!

Bring back ylang ylang scent - 19-06-2018 by

I received a sample of this and loved the scent - it also made my skin feel soft and clear within 2 nights of using it, which made me purchase a bottle. My bottle arrived and after using it for about a week, it didn't seem to give me the same results as the sample size. I checked the ingredients of both and found that they've changed it from ylang ylang to rose geranium. While I think this product is okay, I don't think I'll be purchasing it again unless the bring back the old formula.

Beautiful texture - 18-06-2018 by

This has a gorgeous texture, and a lovely rose scent. It’s a thick creamy product, but doesn’t feel too heavy once it’s on. Best used as a night cream I think. The only reason I’m giving it 4 stars is because the dispenser in the lid stopped working shortly after I got it, so I need to unscrew it every time. Doesn’t take away from the quality of the product though.

Expected more from this! - 14-06-2018 by

I don't know why but I feel like this isn't as moisturising as I expected. The scent is also a bit odd and I feel like you don't get that deeply hydrating feeling that you get from a good moisturiser. It's an OK moisturiser, but if you're expected something more hydrating, it may not be enough!

hydrating without being heavy - 13-06-2018 by

I have combination skin and find this moisturiser absorbs nicely and is not heavy on my skin. I alternate with a face oil and find it is the perfect balance.

Winter Saviour - 13-06-2018 by

This saves my skin in winter. Great cream if you're looking for maximum hydration. Does tingle at first but you just know it is working!

Stinks - 13-06-2018 by

This was my fave moisturiser howerever the formula has changed it was perfect before now my skin stings and it stinks

where's the original? - 12-06-2018 by

I struggle with serious dehydrated, combination skin- which is incredibly frustrating. I tried the Alpha-H range a few months ago and loved the way my skin felt with the Essential Hydration Cream, I must have use and original one because it had a peppermint smell and was delicious and this one has a heavy rose smell, but overall still doing the same thing, it makes my skin feel plump and smooth, and I am the happiest I have been in my own skin since forever

Why the scent? - 12-06-2018 by

I love what this does for my dehydrated skin - absorbs quickly and leaves me baby soft... but the scent?! Urgh. Too strong for my liking. I will continue using it until I finish the tub, but I’m not sure I’d repurchase on the scent alone. If you can handle the smelly though, it’s an amazing moisturiser

Too heavy for me - 11-06-2018 by

While I love Alpha-H's cleanser and Liquid Gold range, I have yet to find a moisturiser from the range that really suits me. I find this waaaaay too heavy for my combo skin type, and I'm not really a fan of strong scents in skincare (natural or otherwise). Other people I know absolutely love this, so it's really down to what's best for your skin. This wasn't for me, but I'm sure it will be someone else's favourite!

Quick absorption and pleasant smell - 07-06-2018 by

I was gifted this product years ago by a beautician friend. Sadly (stupidly!), I didn’t really use it or keep up with a skin care routine back then.
Recently I began to become sick of hiding my terrible skin with makeup and started looking into a skin care routine. I needed something to help with my uneven skin tone, huge pores, breakouts and the signs of aging starting to appear. I loved the Alpha H Liquid Gold (also gifted years ago!) so decided to try it all out again, and stick to it religiously this time! That was three weeks ago- and wow- my skin has changed so much! This moisturizer is perfect for me too! I wanted something quick that would absorb instantly almost! And it does! I hate stickiness and greasiness and this certainly is neither! The tub is super well designed too. One pump down is the perfect amount to cover my face and neck. The smell is nice and not strong at all. I use it after applying a serum and together they aren’t heavy on my face. It is a little pricey compared to a supermarket or pharmacy moisturizer- but you only need a little each time and knowing it slides on nicely and absorbs quickly makes it very much worth it.

So nourishing - 06-06-2018 by

Recieved a sample of this in the mail and im in love, its so nourishing and my dry skin soaks it right up!

Great winter cream for combination skin - 05-06-2018 by

I have combination skin that can be quite temperamental and has a tendency to dry out in winter - but after reading a number of positive reviews on this moisturiser, I decided to give it a shot! Three weeks in and I haven't been disappointed. I use it every second morning after cleansing with Alpha-H's Balancing Cleanser, alternating days with Alpha-H's Balancing Moisturiser and Gentle Exfoliant cream. I find the addition of the Hydration Cream to this routine has really softened my skin without my skin reacting, or making it any more oily or shiny. The only thing I don't like is the strong rose scent - it's stuffy and overpowering upon application, but thankfully it fades quickly. Overall though, I'm really pleased and will use this through winter!

Beautifully luxurious cream! - 30-05-2018 by

This is a fantastic cream - it smells amazing, it feels luxuriously thick without being heavy, and it absorbs wonderfully into the skin! Will leave your skin feeling moisturised and happy, and won't clog pores. Have repurchased, and will do so again.

Bring back the old scent!! - 25-05-2018 by

The one and only cream moisturiser to actually work on my skin. Light, super hydrating and just feels incredible. A staple to my routine. However, I was extremely disappointed to receive this new Rose Geranium scent. It’s a sickly strong smell and I’m really not a fan. I loved the old Evening Primrose and Ylang Ylang scent. Putting this on in the morning really woke me up, felt fresh and soothing. Also not a fan of the tub it comes in. I feel like I’m being ripped off because it’s not exactly a full tub that it’s perceived to be. Shame... I finished this tub today, but sadly won’t be purchasing again until they offer an alternative to rose scented products.

Rose and geranium love! - 25-05-2018 by

This moisturiser smells amazing and makes my skin incredibly smooth overnight! It will always have a home in my collection! The packaging is unusual, but mine works fine, however I can see how annoying it would be if it malfunctions!

Product CAN be amazing... packaging flaws though - 24-05-2018 by

The cream itself is extremely hydrating - so much so that if you've got oily patches on the skin I recommend avoiding them (or your whole face) in the mornings. The hydration cream works perfectly to recover from some of the harsher products I put on my face at night.

My main issue with the product is the jar. My first jar stopped pumping after 3 weeks. The cream inside the tub had congealed and wasn't runny enough to move through the pump. The wonderful Adore Beauty Customer Service Team provided me an exchange for a different jar, however, while it has been a few weeks longer than before, I am once again starting to have trouble getting the product out of the jar so i suspect it may have started to congeal once again.

Still amazing though, would probably repurchase regardless as it really is fantastic after a massive acid tone!

Changed formula is irritating - 21-05-2018 by

Like others have mentioned, this was previously an unscented formula. I received a sample in a prior Adore order and loved it - perfect for my skin. I immediately bought a full sized product. Unfortunately it now contains rose geranium which has completely changed the way the product works for me. It is irritating and drying. I honestly hate it :( First time I've bought something from Adore that I haven't been happy with.

Great value for extra hydration without outbreak - 17-05-2018 by

I have combination skin that easily reacts with outbreaks despite being almost 50. I also get super dehydrated in cold weather. This cream softens & hydrates noticeably - a little goes a long way - but without the breakouts. Works for me before bed or a little under my sunscreen if skin is a little dry. Smells divine too!

Beautiful product - 13-05-2018 by

I have oily aging skin (I’m 44). I was worried as the consistency is quite thick, I thought it would be to oily, but it applies beautifully, and melts into my skin.
Really nice in winter months too.
Highly recommend, I will definitely repurchase.

wonderfully absorbent - 10-05-2018 by

so hard to find a good moisturizer that plumps up your skin but doesn't leave any greasy feel.. this makes my skin very moist, it feels supple and so smooth, just sinks in.. perfect medium for me. I would use a serum or two with this during winter but all round its a fantastic product.

Lovely every day moisturizer! - 08-05-2018 by

I'm 26 years old with combo skin and have been using The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors for the past few years that I loved, but I was feeling like I needed something a little more. I was pretty hesitant to change up because my skin reacted so well with the ordinary, as in I never had breakouts (before I had very bad breakouts from every high end moisturizer I had tried) but my skin has taken well to Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream. I get the odd breakout but my skin feels softer overall. The only thing I don't like about this is the smell.. I'm not a fan of the natural scent at all but that's not a make or break for me!

Skin feels like silk - 08-05-2018 by

I purchased this product after being pregnant and my skin turning super sensitive. I am so impressed, my skin has not flared up at all, and actually feels so so soft and silky that I can’t stop touching it. It’s beautiful and light and feels really nice on. My skin is really dry at the moment and this hS moisterised it nicely.

Almost perfect for me. - 08-05-2018 by

Love this product - it quenches my dry skin and is really comfortable. Light enough to apply a couple of times during the day. I got a sample and bought the full size but was disappointed with the scent that has been added. It's not that pleasant, and I think it's unnecessary - why change something already great? I'll still use the product, but I wish I could find a supply of unscented cream. Bring back the unscented one please Alpha-H!!

Love it! - 29-04-2018 by

A hydration cream that does exactly that. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin like others can and it soaks in well so no issues with applying makeup on top. Quite a strong rose fragrance but I quite like it.

Like it's name says - Essential - 29-04-2018 by

I am building up my Alpha-H collection slowly and was confused to which moisturiser to purchase. They recommended the exfoliating moisturiser for really oily skin (I think that's what it is) - but I just came off dermaviduals (because $$$) and the moisturiser I used was so thick and my skin absorbed it straight up and reduced redness compared to when I was using cheap clearasil and stuff like that. My hormonal acne prone skin really benefit from adding extra moisture, not minimising it. So I went with this instead, the first few days my skin felt really dry and not as plump, but I think it got used to it, because it's now as smooth as before. I still felt I needed some extra moisture so I just purchased the Hydration Concentrate and apply the serum under, leave for a bit then add one drop to the moisturiser. It is definitely improving!!

Didn't like the texture - 29-04-2018 by

Have been using this cream for a few weeks, overall I am not that impressed. The packaging and smell are lovely, however I don't love the texture. It's quite think and doesn't rub in that well. My face is quite dry in the morning. Have seen better results with other products.

Lovely - 19-04-2018 by

I have purchased this cream before. Last time it was in a sample pack and I was using it with a few drops of the serum as well. It goes on really nicely and absorbs quickly. I wasn't aware that it now contains rose geranium. I'm quite sensitive to smells and I don't love this smell. It is not so overpowering that I can't use it, but I will look for another similar product when I need to buy again. If smells don't bother you, then this is a great product.

A Great Hydration Cream - 18-04-2018 by

I received a sample of this and loved it after using it for the first time that I ordered it straight away. I use it as a night cream after I have applied Alpha H Liquid Gold and I find it really moisturisers my skin. I love the smell and it absorbs into my skin easily. I have acne prone skin but my skin is more on the dry side than oily and this doesn't give me break outs.

A great, hydrating cream, now with 'rose geranium'. - 05-04-2018 by

I have purchased the Alpha-H Essential Hydrating Cream multiple times. I purchased it again just this week. However, I didn't realise it now includes 'rose geranium' (obviously a recent addition). It's not an over-powering scent, but it's strong enough that I won't be able to use it on my face. This is a shame, as I love the consistency and results of this moisturiser and the fact that it had little-to-no scent. If you can tolerate aromatic scents in your face products,then give it a go as it works well to hydrate the skin without feeling greasy.

Not for me - 03-04-2018 by

Sadly this moisturiser isn’t for me, but I can see that others would like it.
What I love about it is the dispenser and the smell.
What I don’t like is that it doesn’t absorb into my skin. My forehead is left so oily it’s quite awful. Also, it doesn’t seem to react well in days when I’ve applied anything active underneath it. It really stings. Which is strange as this one isn’t meant to have any ingredients in it.

True to its name! - 13-03-2018 by

This is by far the most ESSENTIAL cream in anyone's skin care regime! I'm a massive fan of the pump dispenser- i hate having to put my fingers into pots of creams! I apply this every 2nd night (alpha h liquid gold on the alternating) and always wake up with soft hydrated skin! It has even helped with my skins redness!

favourite moisturiser - 21-02-2018 by

This is the first moisturiser that has helped clear my dry patches from around my nose and eyes and helps give the perfect base for makeup. Currently on my 4th tub!

So much love! - 19-02-2018 by

After trying many day creams I've finally found my holy grail!
My skin is normal to dry but dehydrated and extremely sensitive with eczema.
This product not only smells like a spa it has just the right amount of hydration for during the day and sits well under my makeup. The fact it comes in a cute tub with a pump lid is a plus. Win win for me!!

More Essential Than A Netflix Subscription - 06-02-2018 by

This moisturiser is phenomenal. If it ran for the senate, I would vote for it in a second. It has a thick, balm consistency, that really goes a long way. I love the pump system, which gives you a controlled portion amount, and makes the product last longer.

They say there is no greater feeling than love, but I'm not sure those people have tried using the Alpha H micro scrub, then applying this cream on straight afterwards - because I can guarantee they both elicit the same levels of serotonin. This cream is incredibly hydrating, and was a game changer for my skin. I am currently exhausting all of my other stocks of moisturiser before purchasing another one, and I can already notice the effects of not using it on my skin. I've had breakouts, dryness, and the kind of mess that makes you invest in beanies, giant sunglasses, and high collared clothing to mask your face. This is definitely on my list to re-purchase very soon.

Great Product - 06-02-2018 by

I love this moisturiser and the scent of it as well. It feels great on my skin. I tend to use this at night though as I find that my foundation tends to almost "slide" throughout the day otherwise. Only downside I feel is the packaging, it seems super hygienic, however how do you get the last drags out?!

Best hydrating moisturiser - 28-12-2017 by

I love this so much, it’s such a goof pick me up for those days your skin looks dull. It brightens your skin up and hydrates it so much!!! Love it

5 out of 5 - 12-12-2017 by

Highly recommend using this moisturiser morning and night. It's nice and light undermeath primer for when your wanting to wear makeup. I use it daily

Instant hydration - 04-12-2017 by

Was suffering from dehydrated skin when I discovered this product. It instantly absorbs into my skin and makes it silky smooth. Any flakiness disappears. Great for combination, oily or dehydrated skin. Would definitely recommend this.

Perfect under foundation hydrating cream - 04-12-2017 by

I used to struggle to find a hydrating skin to wear under my foundation, but after using Alpha H Essential Hydrating Cream, my problem is solved. My skin feels hydrated all day long and my foundation does not slip and slide everywhere. Not heavy on the skin, just the perfect blend of hydration and lasting power.

Ok - 15-11-2017 by

I want to like this cream as I love Alpha H products, however it has a strong perfumed smell and can leave some residue on the skin. I still use it every now and again, however its certainly not my favorite Alpha H product. The consistency is a cross between a cream, balm and gel. I think there are cheaper and better products on the market.

This is my go-to moisturiser! - 23-10-2017 by

I have struggled for years to find a face moisturiser that I love until I came across Alpha-H! The Essential Hydration Cream is by far the best cream I have ever used. I have combination skin so it is important that my moisturiser isn't too heavy, but I also don't want it to be too lightweight and pointless! So its always been hard for me to find something suitable! This cream absorbs into my skin easily and has the most lovely scent. I also love the way it dispenses from the package so you don't waste product. I use this day and night, and it prepares my skin beautifully for applying makeup. It also works well with the other skincare products I use. I like that it doesn't have an SPF so I can use it anytime and apply sunscreen separately if I need to. Great price too!

A brilliant basic for regular hydration and smoothing at any time of the day. Ideal for under make-up or pair it with your favourite serums, oils etc.for additional results

Beautiful Product - 19-10-2017 by

Such a beautiful and light moisturiser. The smell isn’t that great but my skin looks and feels so hydrated. Definitely buy again

Great - especially for dry skin - 18-10-2017 by

For years I suffered with dry skin and this was the only moisturiser I could use on my skin without causing breakouts or congestion. I have very sensitive skin and this was a life saver! My Mum is now hooked on the product and she swears by it for her dry and red skin.
If you're looking for something to soothe your dry, flakey skin...definitely give this product a try!

Lovely moisturiser - 10-10-2017 by

This is a really nice moisturiser. Feels lovely on the skin, not too greasy. I have been using this as a day cream and it absorbs nicely. I have taken one star off as I am not a fan of the mint scent and the cooling feeling when first applied, but would still repurchase

My new fave - 04-10-2017 by

On my second tub and I rarely buy the same thing twice! :D I love the fresh scent and the light balmy texture I think it will be a great one for summer. It feels kind of minty and tingly on the skin. I love the packaging too with the pump top it's super hygienic compared to an open tub and no wastage.

Amazing - 02-10-2017 by

I have so many make up and skin products and I only ever bother reviewing on the ones I have actually seen making a difference in my skin. This is such and amazing cream because it’s moisturising and also hydrating. I would recommend this to anyone who wants an extra boost with their moisturiser

Fantastic every day cream - 27-09-2017 by

I absolutely love this cream! I have quiet dry skin at times and so need something with hydrating properties. The problem is that there is usually too much and my skin ends up oily and horrible. That does NOT happen with this cream. It glides on smooth and keeps my skin moisturised yet still matte all day long. It has become an essential part of my morning routine.

not bad. - 18-09-2017 by

I always put a moisturizer on my face as i have a normal to dry skin. But in the winter my skin tend to dry a bit more. The cream it has a cool feeling when you apply it on. Smell great but I could not feel anything differences about it than any other brands. I would not be in the rush to repurchase again soon. But I would keep it in mind not a bad product worth the money.

Love the feel of it - 18-08-2017 by

This moisturiser is very hydrating on my dry skin. It is also light in texture. I love it. One of the best moisturisers I've tried.

My skin has never felt so good! - 08-08-2017 by

After years of dry, sensitive skin I gave Alpha H a try and I am definately going to keep this in my skincare routine as it has made considerable improvements to my skin, it's so soft!

Skin has never felt better! - 08-08-2017 by

I definately recommend this hydrating cream - my skin is so soft after years of dry sensitive skin.

The first time i used this my skin felt dry. However the next day it felt lovely. - 19-07-2017 by

A great addition to my dry skin routine! I was worried after first use as it felt like it dried my skin out. But the next day it was smooth and felt like velvet. I really love the feel, the smell and the package. I use it about once a week and find its enough.

Why did I wait so long to try! - 30-06-2017 by

this product is amazing! Plumps up my skin, helps clear my eczema. Not too greasy or oily. I use it morning and night and I will never go back to anything else!

Would and have repurchased. - 26-06-2017 by

This is a lovely, fantastically hydrating cream. It smells lovely, minty and fresh. It is cooling and refreshing on the skin. It occasionally tingles, but nothing super uncomfortable.

Fantastic - 07-06-2017 by

This cream seems to have a tightening effect on my skin (very happy about that) ! The cream comes in a jar so easy to use where you just push on the sides of lid and cream is dispersed through the middle ( Don't have to stick fingers in Jar). I use it with the Alpha H intensive eye and lip treatment and the two feel great using together. If I have to go out late at night and your feeling tired I use the Intensive eye and lip treatment cream again to pep me up a bit and don't look so tired ( Yay) I like to change my moisturising creams around but when your feeling like a spruce up and having a change I use this one !

Good moituriser - 26-05-2017 by

This cream smells amazing and absorbs quickly into the skin leaving my face feeling fresh and smooth. It is great for use during the day and under makeup, however at night I prefer something a bit more moisturising. The times that I have used one pump at night has left my face feeling a little more dry than I would like in the morning.

Obsessed! - 28-12-2016 by

This is by far the best moisturizer I've used in a long time, I cannot recommend it enough! I use it every night and sometimes mornings as well. My skin is prone to dryness and this cream is beautifully rich and creamy without being too greasy. I will definitely be repurchasing, I don't think I can live without this moisturizer!

Good, rich, moisturiser - 21-06-2016 by

This is my favourite Alpha H moisturiser so far. Exactly what I need. Feels
great on the skin.

This is the best moisturiser I've used - 17-08-2015 by

I recently received this as a sample from adore with my 1st order. It is fantastic and completes my skin care routine. I have tried the other Alpha H moisturisers but they do not compare to this one.

Not like other moisturisers, really penetrates - 15-12-2014 by

A very thin feeling moisture which doesn't clog pores but really penetrates my skin unlike others that just seem to sit on top. My skin is usually quite dehydrated but since using this moisturiser my skin is soft and supple.

fantastic product - 23-08-2014 by

I've been using the alpha-h essential hydration cream for almost a month now. This is the first moisturiser that hasn't caused redness, irritation and breakouts. I have sensitive and dehydrated skin and have found most moisturisers just float on top of my skin. Not the case here. My skin feels soft and supple. Definitely give it a go. Not too sure about the packaging compared to a tube where you can squeeze out every last bit. I will be buying again.

Fantastic mouisturiser in winter - 21-08-2014 by

This is a fantastic hydration cream to use in winter. Since using it I haven't had dry skin and I am now half way through my second bottle. I use it at night but have also used it during the day and then put make up on without issues. I have combination skin

It's a little too greasy!! - 26-11-2013 by

I've been using the Medik8 night time moisturiser and thought l'd try something new and a little cheaper. I'd read great reviews on this one so thought it would be worth a try. I actually find it to be really greasy and it doesn't seem to soak in well. It doesn't seem to matter how little l use. I end up looking really shiny afterwards. My skin does feel lovely the next day, but l just don't like the greasiness of it.

Love Love Love this product - 14-10-2013 by

It is a gorgeous moisturiser, thick and creamy without being greasy. Is absorbed into your skin quickly, but your skin feels so soft all day. Love it

The only moisturiser to buy! - 18-07-2013 by

This is by far the best moisturiser I have ever used. Not only does it plump up your skin, it smells wonderful, glides on evenly and doesnt leave you feeling oily. You face will stay supple and hydrated till the end of the day. Feels great under foundation or worn on its own.

Fresh & Clean - 14-07-2013 by

Alpha-H Essential Hydreation Cream is one of the better moisturisers I have used in recent years. As a mother of 2 young children & busy lifestyle, I have found this cream to be refreshing & softening, and a treat just for me! I would definately buy this again again and I look forward to trying some of their other products.

Great product - 12-02-2013 by

I have been using Alpha H skin care for some time now and would not use any other !!

Alpha-h essential hydration cream - 03-02-2013 by

Ive been a massive fan of alpha liquid Gold for a few months now and thought id try this my skin can be combination depending on that time of the month it is i do tend to get a dry t zone, ive been using this every morning for about 2 weeks now and have noticed a bit difference in my skins appearance its brighter and smoother and i feel refreashed after applying it , i use it of a morning and also when im feeling a little tired after getting home from a big day at work its freshness gives me a clean feeling, im going to try a few more of the products from the alpha range very soon.

loving it! - 04-01-2013 by

I'm loving this Alpha-H Essential Hydration cream. I am 42 and have sensitive, dehydrated skin but I also get oily t-zone and am prone to breakouts. Moisturizers usually either don't hydrate my skin enough, or make me feel oily and cause pimples, or (often) both. This one feels great as soon as I put it on and my skin stays looking and feeling moisturized all day without any oiliness. ( I have been using it twice a day for two weeks). My skin looks and feels better than it has in a very long time.
