I bought this product as I have other Alpha-H products that work well. Using a balm is new to me but I was looking for something more gentle and soothing for my dry skin. This is definitely gently but the consistency of the product is more like Vaseline and you do need to take it off with a warm washcloth in the shower. I don't use this to take my make-up off, I use it in the shower in the morning...
I use this on inconvenient whopper pimples that are so big they need their own post codes - it’s calming and tames irritation but it still takes a few days of treatment to notice a considerable difference. The tea tree smell is quite strong but I’m not too bothered by it.
I just love this product for its exfoliation super powers. I find it helpful to treat breakouts and I’m using it almost every night now to gently resurface and help with blockage. Using it in place of a toner has worked well for me, but I’ve always used a number of serums and moisturising creams afterward because it can be a little drying.
I was having issues with an oily T-Zone and blackheads but after about 3 applications as instructed, my face was smoother and the oil was subsiding. Really good for my hormonal acne too - it’s now apart of my routine every 2nd night.
I really enjoy using this moisturiser. The SPF level is a major PLUS! Plus it contains antioxidants which is an added bonus.You receive 50ml of product which is standard for a facial moisturiser. I find you can pick it up for cheaper than the usual retail price from Adore Beauty which is great. I have acne prone skin and it doesn't break me out luckily. It has a slight tint which stops it from lea...
Love this glycolic acid treatment! A bottle will last you a very long time....I use it every second night. It would be great if Alpha H released a 10% glycolic acid treatment - this standard version contains 5% glycolic acid. Tingles slightly on the skin, but smooths texture and fine lines.
I have noticed a difference to the evenness of my skin and diminishing of pimple/spot scars. I use a lot of actives but had never tried retinol before so was apprehensive and wanted to try one that would work but wouldn't aggravate my sensitive skin. I did my research (recommended by Caroline Hirons) and am very happy with this product - would recommend.
