Does anybody use/know of the aussie skincare brand Alpha-H ?
I had a look at makeupalley .. but there were no reviews..
They offer a wide range of products.
On HQhair the tag line reads :
Alpha-H is advanced in its formulation, it balances the skin's pH factor in all skin types by eliminating dryness and absorbing excess oil.
Alpha-H utilises "Glycolic Acid" an Alpha Hydroxy Acid which naturally occurs in sugar cane to treat and visibly improve all skin conditions.
It guarantees results when used to help:
FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
PIGMENTATION AND SUN DAMAGE
CLOGGED PORES AND BLEMISHES
ACNE AND ACNE SCARRING
DERMATITIS, ECZEMA AND PSORIASIS
TIRED, LIFELESS SKIN
According to facialcompany.com.au :
Alpha-H is an advanced cosmeceutical skin care line and one of the first companies in Australia and the world to develop a variety of glycolic formulations in combination with Vitamins A, C and E and other ingredients (harvested from naturally occurring botanical fruits, flowers and nuts).
The active ingredients in Alpha-H formulations reach the layers of skin where it would be most effective whilst maintaining a balanced pH level to help improve the skin.
I'm Australian and have used Alpha-H in the past. I think it's a good line and there are still some products of theirs I want to try, mainly the masks.
These are the products I have tried (I have normal skin):
Liquid Gold (glycolic treatment) was good but I think it ended up being too drying on my skin. My mum liked it though, she went through a couple of bottles before moving onto something new (she has my problem - product junkie!).
Microcleanse: this stuff is great. It cleanses really well and it's not too drying. I only had a sample tube.
10% Balancing Moisturiser: only had a sample of this but from memory it was ok. It mustn't have impressed me that much otherwise I'd have bought a full-sized bottle.
Balancing Cleanser: this was really quite nice but I prefer a foaming cleanser (this is more a cream cleanser).
I've tried the eye creams and they didn't impress me too much, but I'm not a big eye cream person.
Okay I tried out the Alpha-H's Calming and Hydrating Mask with Aloe Vera last night.. and I have to say that my dry skin sucked everything up.. to the point where there was nadda left on my face..
So I have to conclude that this mask is best for summer use when my skin isn't so hungry for moisture.. which makes sense because the pamplet that comes with the produce.. recommeds that it is used after being out in the sun/swimming.. so I'm bringing it with me when I go on summer vacation..
