This is a new-ish addition to my skincare regimen. I’ve used Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant for years and such was my reluctance to try something new that I ignored all the good things I was hearing about Alpha-H… for about 5 minutes. Micro Cleanse caught my eye in particular as it contains Glycolic Acid, one of my all time favorite skin resurfacing ingredients.
Alpha-H say the granulated formula helps dislodge oil, dirt and dead skin cells, refines skin and reveals a new freshness. Granulated means there are little scrubber type beads in the cream. As I have oily skin, I’m always a little wary of this as sometimes it can encourage your skin to produce more oil. Fortunately, it hasn’t done that and so I’ll start raving about this right about now.
I love this cleanser. Shall I go on? I love love love this cleanser. It’s incredibly effective and yet very gentle. My skin feels amazing after I use this; smoother softer and visibly brighter. It’s very easy to use too. Squeeze a thumbnail sized amount into your hand and massage gently all over the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Work it in for about 2 minutes and rinse with warm water. Additionally, it smells fabulous; fresh and zesty. I’ve been using it about twice a week for a couple of weeks now and have really noticed a difference in my skin. After the first few uses I expected a bit of a breakout but nothing happened, which makes me love it even more!
It cost 23.50GBP from Beauty Expert, who conveniently offer free worldwide shipping. I’m considering trying out some other products from Alpha-H now so watch this space…
