free shipping on all australian orders.

Restore hydration to dry, dull, and irritated skin with Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream. Alpha-H understands that a daily moisturiser is an absolute must-have in any skincare cabinet. The brand has developed a high-performance day cream for those the driest of complexions.

Alpha-H is known for its usual inclusion of potent actives and Alpha-Hydroxy Acids. However, Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream is a gentler formulation. Free from AHAs and potential irritants, Essential Hydration is the perfect choice for sensitive and reactive skin types.

Whether you are looking to restore suppleness and vitality to ageing skin or calm an irritated complexion, Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream is a perfect everyday moisturiser.

Key benefits of Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream:

  • Daily anti-ageing moisturiser containing a blend of Essential Oils and Fatty Acids
  • Suitable for very dry skin types
  • Helps to calm irritated and sensitive skin
  • Can be used as a day or night cream
  • Reduces redness and rebuilds broken capillaries
  • Contains antioxidants to protect skin from free radical damage

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

Essential Hydration Cream has been developed with 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, it is not 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 from AHAs, so it will not cause further irritation.


How do you use Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream?


  • This daily moisturiser can be used after cleansing, both morning and evening.
  • Apply a pea sized amount to the face and gently massage in to skin. 

Who should use the Alpha-H Essential Hydration cream?

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 to promote collagen production, so it is perfect for those whose skin has become drier in their later years.

What are the key ingredients in Alpha-H Essential Hydration cream?

  • Rose Geranium has a natural anti-fungal effect on the skin and the aromatherapy benefit has a grounding effect on the central nervous system making this a soothing and favourable scent for everyday use.
  • Linoleic Acid and Evening Primrose Oil provide intense hydration whilst promoting healthy collagen production. These ingredients also have antioxidant properties to help calm skin and protect it from free radical damage.

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!

Everyday Hero - 22-10-2017 by

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.

I look forward to applying this moisturizer - 25-11-2012 by

At the end of a long day there is great comfort in washing your face ( an old fashion term for cleansing ) and applying moisturizer in the little ritual we all have getting ready for bed . I love the texture , smell and feel of Alpha -A Essential Hydration Cream. Delightful no to mention my skin is smooth and lovely. Bliss

I'm hooked. - 29-10-2012 by

I'm on my second bottle of this Alpha H moisturiser and I just love it. I have dry and dehydrated skin that has always flaked no matter how much I've exfoliated and moisturised but since switching to the Alpha H range, my 41yo skin now glows and I get regular compliments on how great my skin looks.
Even though my skin is very dry and this moisturiser works perfectly for me, I imagine it would also work brilliantly for anyone with normal skin too because the cream is definitely not oily or too rich. Oh and I should add, a little bit goes a long way, so it's great value for money.
