Smells like luxury
Essential HydrationI 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.
Definitely not for meI 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.
Very goodBeautiful 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.
Love the smellI personally love the smell of this moisturiser, the texture and thickness is also great it makes me feel moisturised without feeling greasy.
Not a fanNearly 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.
BeautifulThis is a really lovely hydration cream. Also has a beautiful rose scent
Average moisurizerNot 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
Lightweight but effectiveI 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.
Super soft skinThis cream does exactly what it says, it hydrates my skin and leaves it feeling soft for the whole day.Love this brand!
Nice moisturiser which absorbs quicklyThis 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.
GoodThis is a great moisturiser for hydration.
Great hydrating moisturiserLove this product for my day time moisturiser. I have dry and dehydrate skin and this over the top of my day serums is perfect.
GreatThis hydration cream helps to hydrate my skin. I use it every day and night. Definitely one of my favourite.
Day cream + moisturiser in oneThis 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.
Good all rounderI 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...Read More
Smells like luxuryI 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
Simple hydrationI’m onto my third or fourth tube of this, it’s a lovely simple moisturiser.
Love it!!Absolutely love this cream! Extremely hydrating and smooths out fine lines and plumps my dehydrated skin
Hydration gold!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.
A Must HaveI 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.
A good & affordable option for dry skinThis 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...Read More
Hydratingthis moisturizer is really hydrating! a little goes a long way! i have sensitive skin and didn't break me out!
Hydrating with strong scentI 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...Read More
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.
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). ...Read More
GreatThis is a great moisturiser for the morning as it is not heavy and it leaves my skin looking good and hydrated
Rose-yThe 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
Nice moisturiserA 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.
Absolutely love itI 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.
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 b...Read More
Essential Creamthis cream is good to use morning or night it is very hydrating for the skin! it helped with a few of my dry patches!
My all time fave moisturiserI 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!!!
Perfect - love it!This leaves my skin so soft and smooth. Very hydrating beautiful light weight non-irritant moisturiser and smells absolutely divine.
pretty gooda gentle cream with nice smell. suitable for summer times
Great unfussy moisturiserExcellent moisturiser that is light to apply but enough to work. My moisturiser of choice.
Excellent HydrationI 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!
Prefer as a Day MoisturiserThis 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.
decent creamThis is a nice, decent cream but I have tried better
Very niceI'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.
GoodThis leaves my skin so soft and smooth. Very hydrating
Just amazingThis product is a beautiful light weight non-irritant moisturiser and smells absolutely divine.
Hydrating creami like this hydrating cream helps with dry patches on the face! very moisturising only need a little bit!
Ok night creamNot 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.
GoodThis is a very moisturising cream and leaves my skin very soft. However I am not a fan of the essential oils in it
Favorite moisturiserThe 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.
LOVEThis 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!
Love itVery hydrating & thick without feeling too heavy. Great under makeup too
Nice moisturiser but strongly scentedI 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.
Nice MoisturiserLeaves my skin soft, smooth and hydrated. My skin has never been more healthy than when using this and the other Alpha-H products.
Love itThis 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!
ThickQuite a thick formula. Very effective on dry skin to lock in moisture. Unfortunately has a fragrance that some may not like.
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.
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.
Perfect for winterI 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.
very nice creamA 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
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..
MehWanted 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.
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!
Fantastic Hydration creamI 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.
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.
GoodThe 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!
Fabulous day creamI 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!
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.
Nice feel but not for meLovely 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.
GreatI find this moisturiser hydrating and not too heavy. Sinks in easily. Great for daytime or nightime. Works well with the rest of the line.
Perfect day creamAn absolutely beautiful moisturiser, sits really nicely under SPF during the day or works nicely as lighter night cream in the summer.
BEAUTIFUL CREAMAs 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
My go toMy skin was so dry before using this product. This is now my go to cream.
Perfect everyday moisturiserReally light on the skin, not greasy but it keeps my skin subtle.
GREAT MOISTURISERThis is really good for my sensitive skin its very light and very hydrating.
Amazing productI 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
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.
Very hydratingHad used this product for 5+ years. It is very hydrating and leaves the skin feeling supple and fresh.
Everything a moisturiser should beI 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!
Great for dehydrated and sensitive areasI 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 sunbur...Read More
Smooth and lightI 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 .
HYDRATING & SMELLS AMAZINGI 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.
favourite MoisturiserAbsolutely 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
Fabulous ProductThis 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.
Lightweight and dewyFavourite 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!
Great to use when flyingKeeps my skin nice and hydrated on a long haul flight. It's a must-have for travel.
Smells lovely and goes on so smoothThis 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
AmazingLeaves your face feeling smooth and tight.
Definitely can tell a difference in my skin.
Plump and perfectTogether 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.
Soft and smooth skinI 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.
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!
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 oc...Read More
GreatI have dry skin and I love this moisturizer for everyday use. Worth it
GreatI 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
Nice every day foundation for combo skinI 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...Read More
Lovely scent and super luxe hydrationI 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 im...Read More
Good Active MoisturiserI 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.
Worth itI received a sample of this moisturiser and it is divine. It smells beautiful and is so hydrating. I would definitely purchase the full size.
Beautiful MoisturizerI 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!
Sample - nice moisturiserReceived 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.
Plump and hydrated skinUsed 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.
Light and long lastingThis 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
Finally found my favourite face creamI 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
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.
Not sureI 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.
