Cult beauty brand to know…
[dropcap]Once[/dropcap] in while a skincare range comes around that can proudly carry the title of a ‘game-changer’ and for me it’s an Aussie brand Alpha-H.
This cult favourite with beauty lovers only came across my radar recently and I’ve been really excited to trial some of the products for a moth. Alpha-H contain active ingredients designed to effectively help with any skin concerns which was echoed by some of you guys on my Instastories.
Ever since I started taking pregnancy vitamins, my skin has changed. I’ve become more prone to breakouts, dryness and redness so with that, my skin routine needed a change. Skincare ranges from well known beauty brands work well on the surface but I needed a deeper and maybe more ‘medical’ approach that gives lasting results, rather than a temporary glow.
Alpha-H isn’t cheap, but the ingredients are so effective that you don’t need to use much to reap the benefits which means the range actually lasts a long time. I’ve broken it down in the products I’ve tried and would love to hear if you have used any of these too.
Vitamin Profiling Collection
This series of vitamin serums allow you to treat skin concerns as they arise each day. Choose Vitamin-A for anti-aging and sun damage, Vitamin-B is best for adding moisture which is the one I used mostly. If you have dull skin, which happens especially after travel, then you need Vitamin-C while Vitamin-E is for any skin emergencies like flaky or red skin patches as it reduces sensitivity.
From a name like that you expect a lot and you know what, it delivers. It is designed for mature, sun damaged and acne scarred concerns so it is perfect for us in the desert. I used it every other night on it’s own before bed and it acts like an overnight facial which results in smoother moisturised skin.
Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask
I also get asked my skin therapists if I exfoliate and when I answer no the thrown and look at my complexion with new concern. It is key to clarifying your skin and should be done at least once a week which this mask is ideal for. It is like a mini-peel at home leaving you feeling refreshed.
Essential Hydration Cream
I love the fact that you never dip your fingers into all the cream to get a little bit for your face. I’ve heard that effect the balance in you skin care so here all you do is press down to get the amount of cream you need. Genius. Not only that but it provides a relief to damaged skin and I apply it mainly around the nose where I have the redness.
Protection Plus Daily SPF 50+
One thing I learnt from beauty editors is that you should never leave the house without SPF, no matter how cloudy it is. I had problems with using SPF under makeup as I found many to be sticky and greasy but this one soaks right in and provides extra moisture on top of sun protection. I also apply to my hands as I get direct sunlight on them when I drive and really don’t want to have wrinkly hands. I don’t think there’s a botox for that…
Alpha-H has rightfully earned a permanent place on my beauty shelf and if you’re looking to invest in products that give immediate and long-lasting results, these products are for you.
