I use this product as my daily moisturiser, it leaves my skin feeling hydrated, soft and smooth. I have normal to oily skin and often find moisturisers leave my skin feeling oily and shiny - not this product though! I love it!

My skin is looking amazing after recently using this. It has a beautiful natural glow and feels very hydrated
GreatI love it ! it makes my acne prone skin look cleaner and fresher. The best cream I ever used.

AmazingMy skin is looking amazing after recently using this. It has a beautiful natural glow and feels very hydrated
Fantastic!I have been using this product for a while now but was originally converted after receiving a sample. The difference in my skins appearance after using the sample was fantastic it was so much clearer, brighter and hydrated.
Also love the press down dispenser and light weight feel of this moisturiser.
The only downside for me would be the menthol as I find it a bit strong but all the positives definitely outweigh this little one.
GreatA nice moisturiser, I prefer this during the day and something a little richer at night for my dry skin.
Great for oily skin/large poresHave been using this for a week now and am enjoying the instant difference this makes to my skin. Leaves my skin looking smoother and less congested, and keeps me matte for longer than many other moisturisers I've tried that promise that same thing. Will see if if provides long term benefits!
GoodI have combination skin and sometimes have a hard time trying to find a moisturiser that doesn't make my skin feel excessively oily or dry. This product works wonders, I use it in the mornings and my skin feels hydrated all day without feeling greasy. Like other reviewers, I do get a slight tingle when first putting the moisturiser on but it does go away within seconds. When I use this moisturiser consistently it does exactly as Alpha-H claims it should, leaving my skin looking and feeling clearer, brighter, and hydrated.
Perfect moisturiserI have combination skin and it has done exactly as it says, my skin doesn’t feel greasy even when it’s applied under my daily SPF moisturiser. I use day and night and have had great results within the first week
It’s good.This is good moisturiser. I don’t have any complaints. I’m not sure it’s the best in my drawer. It’s something I reach for when I’ve been heavy on strong products to give my skin a break. I would still buy it again.
Amazing moisturiser!Such a light moisturiser that I use morning and night, works well for combination skin and leaves no oily residue!
GreatI have acne prone skin even in my adulthood and I find that the Balancing Moisturiser and Gentle Exfoliant from Alpha-H is absolutely perfect for my skin. It contains glycolic acid, which is instantly noticeable for me as when I initially apply it to my skin I feel a slight tingling sensation. This to me means that it is doing its job and the tingling settles very quickly. I tend to use it as my nighttime moisturiser and I alternate using this and applying Liquid Gold from the same brand. It leaves my skin feel smooth and silky.
Easy to use packagingNo waste with the press down dispense. My skin is much smother after consistent use of this and liquid gold.
Nice but overpricedSo I have combination skin & I noticed this moisturiser really hydrates my skin for about 8hours then I’ll have to reapply. It tingles when I apply it which I’m guessing means it works & I don’t mind the smell. I like how it dispenses so it’s hygenic & the consistency is nice and not runny. I do think it’s overpriced though as it doesn’t do much except hydrate skin like most good moisturisers. I’m also acne prone & my acne is still the same so it doesn’t do much for acne. I’d definitely buy again but only if it’s on special.
My skin drinks thisI love the improvement in my skin since using this product! I love that it is a glycolic acid and moisturiser in one. I apply it every second night and wake up to the most softest, smoothest skin which is super hydrated and plump! The 10% Glycolic acid does an amazing job of exfoliating my skin revealing beautiful new skin underneath! I find this product to be super nourashing and doesn't affect my sensitive skin. I love Alpha-H products and this is easily another one of my favourites! I wouldn't be without it now!
HOLY GRAILSkin type: Combo with large pores and mild rosacea
Prior to using this product my skincare routine was primarily a blend of a vitamin c serum during the day, a heavier moisturiser at night, and a chemical exfoliator a couple times a week. This has absolutely changed the game for me. I have only had 1 breakout in the two months I have been using it alone. I haven't noticed a massive change in my redness or the size of my pores but I now very rarely need to exfoliate as my pores stay very clear. The biggest difference has been my skin composition which leans more towards 'normal' now. I use this product religiously, it has a strong mint scent which I enjoy (but understand may be irritating for some) and I enjoy the pump (however, it can be difficult to tell how much product is left). I'm onto my second pot and can't see my routine changing anytime soon.
LOVE ITI am on my second jar of this and I just love it!! Super moisturising while keeping my skin lovely and clear. I won't be without it.
okayIts nice moisturize well however it doesn't meet my expectation with the price I paid for the product, the result was similar with product I paid with lesser price.

Good for oily skinI have found the balancing moisturiser very good for my oily skin... after wondering why my foundation was sliding off my face for the whole day, my primer was not staying put... i realised that i DID NOT READ THE INSTRUCTIONS for this moisturiser. use at night before bed and not as a daily moisturiser in the morning .. my bad!! now it works a treat. my skin feels calm and slightly less oil every morning when i wake up.
AmazingI am on my second jar of Alpha H balancing moisturizer. It works well for my combination skin. It has improved my skin texture with constant usage, together with the Alpha H liquid gold & retinol products. I use it only in the morning (under makeup). It provides a nice, subtle dewy glow to the skin..
Perfect balancing moisturiser suitable for sensitive skinI have sensitive combination skin, this moisturiser is perfect! It balances out my skin without causing an adverse reaction. Highly recommended.
Good for winterI like to use this moisteriser in winter, i have acne prone skin that is combination/ so oily in tzone but can get dry if i use harsh products and don't moisterise enough. I find this cream too heavy in summer and sometimes when using morning and night it can irritate my skin. I find at nighttime in summer and morning and night in winter is great. i didn't find that it made a huge difference in clearing my skin, but it did keep it hydrated and i didnt get blackheads.
All in all a good moisteriser, not overly expensive and the unique pump jar ensures it last a bit longer as you only need 1 pump for your face!
Favorite EverAnother amazing Alpha-H product. Such a difference in my skin- keeps it clear. It's a pepperminty sort of feeling putting it on and always makes me feel so clean and fresh. Love love love.
Facelift qualityThis product is amazing, I have slightly sensitive skin and can still use it twice a week. Put a small amount on the night before a special day, your skin will look amazing in the morning, it's great on neck and decolletage also. Highly recommended.
love the packagingI love the packaging, you really get to use 99% of the product.
I love the product as well.
Love the exfoliation!!Love the tingly feeling and the exfoliation
At first, it feels a little moist and doesn’t soak in to skin quickly
But the difference in my complexion is phenomenal and I’ve only been using it for a week
I love this product
Like itThis is super hydrating and soft. It smells amazing - like you have just gone for a facial. It really does the job well I love it!
Worth every pennyI love AlphaH products and this one is no difference. I am in mid 40's and have oily skin. Usually other moisturizers would leave my skin very clogged and feel heavy but not this one. It really gently moisturize and definitely worth buying.
Another winnerThis would be by second favourite moisturiser of Alpha-h coming in second to the multivitamin moisturiser. This is excellent at controlling breakouts and assisting in controlling breakouts and wears very well under make-up.
My pores are gone!I only bought this product as a moisturiser, so didn't have any huge expectations for it sorting my skin concerns. But after a few weeks of using this, I've noticed my pores aren't visible any more! My skin is plumper and glowing, so very happy with the product. I did however need to but another moisturiser, as this made my skin a bit dry.
Leaves your skin feeling plump and smoothAlpha H never does me wrong. I have oily acne prone skin with a lot of scarring on it & this moisturizer paired with the Alpha vitamin A serum is an absolute dream combo. Your skin isnt left feeling oily or heavy, you wake up the next day with plump and rejuvenated skin!

Great Product!This product is great, I am in my early 20s and it definitely moisturizes the skin and you can certainly feel the slight sensation when the exfoliant kicks in. I use it daily and I rarely get breakouts, only every now and again but who doesn’t! This product was recommended by my beautician and ever since then I’ve purchased it several times. Only downfall is the dispenser the cream comes in.
Adore itThis smells, fells, and works, just like a cream you would have applied at a professional facial! It is amazing and hydrating. Love it. Has a tiny gentle exfoliator but nothing too harsh!
Devastated this does not work for meWith all the amazing reviews I was soooo excited to try this product, I love Alpha-H but this product really did not work for me at all. I have combination skin with heavy hormonal breakouts, as well as really dry flaky skin. This product really irritated, I would wake with red, sore, itchy skin and my breakouts became more frequent and worse than before. I gave it to hubby who has normal skin and he is enjoying using it although says he can't tell a difference in his skin.
I adore it!I love this more than I can explain! I really struggle to find moisturisers as I have rosacea & combination skin...my skin is extremely sensitive but this is amazing.. I feel the tingle as it works its magic but it never hurts or burns.
I prefer to use it at night after a full cleanse rather than in the morning though because otherwise I find its greasy under my make up by the end other day (which could totally be dependant on the foundation you use).
Totally worth a try!
One of the bestI love this moisturiser! Light weight, fast absorbing and provides great hydration - perfect for my oily skin. The slight tingling feeling is a pleasant subtle reminder of just how much this moisturizing can do (I am onto my 3rd jar)
l o v eI use this moisturiser everyday, the gentle exfol give a tiny tingle sensation and leaves my face feeling smooth and soft. I find it gives my face the hydration it needs. It has lasted me so long but I will definitely be repurchasing when it runs out.
Great everyday moisturiserI have oily/combo skin which can be a bit sensitive at times. This moisturiser is so good for everyday use as its hydrating and super light. It leaves my skin feeling soft and supple even in the hot Brisbane heat. Absorbs well. The only thing is that due to the hydroxy acids it can sting a little bit when you first apply it, but it usually only lasts a few seconds. Doesn't have a scent which is good and is in a hygienic push top bottle.
LOVE ITI love this! It as good as the usual mosturizer but the little gentle exfoliation gives a tiny tingle and you can really feel it working!
Amazing!I was sent this moisturiser by mistake- I had ordered the Alpha-H essential hydration cream and received this one instead. (I’m not mad because this stuff is amazing!!!) I have fairly sensitive skin and I get the odd hormonal breakout but since using this my skin is smooth, clear, hydrated and bright! You get a mild tingling sensation when you apply which only lasts a few seconds and leaves you with amazing skin all day! I’ve stopped using my regular night cream for this twice a day and my skin has never been better. Just make sure to use SPF during the day if you use this.
Great productI've just tried a sample of this product to see what if felt like on my skin as I am very particular with smell and feel of products. This product is beautiful, smells really nice and sinks into the skin nicely without feeling gluggy or sticky. The only thing I can fault is it doesn't have a built in sunscreen which you do need when using Glycolic, but you could easily put a sunscreen on top.
great daily moisturiser.I swapped to this moisturiser from the daily essential hydration due to the rose geranium being added (broke my skin out). This ended up being my favourite moisturiser. Helps combat hormonal acne whilst brightening my overall skin complexion. Definitely feel a tingle sensation sometimes but doesn't last long.
My 2nd reviewThis is my 2nd time reviewing this product and I'm actually onto my 3rd bottle!! It's so good and by far my favourite moisturiser. Super lightweight, great for all weather conditions and absorbs into my skin well. Great for oily/combination skin. LOVE IT!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVEGreat moisturiser/exfoliant which you can use every day without it being too harsh! Since using it, my complexion become brighter and has helped with the hormonal acne I was getting from getting off the pill.. should add that I never had skin problems till I got off the pill so this moisturiser has been a total life saver.. will definitely purchase again!
Really nice productI use this every morning. The scent is lovely & refreshing. It goes on smoothly and isn’t too thick or too thin. I have noticed my pores around my nose disappearing and my complexion is left looking brighter than ever.
Soft skin, reduced acne scars!Wow! I was blown away by how soft this makes my skin feel paired with the vitamin A serum from Alpha H. The applicator is very hygienic & easy to use. The smell is rather fresh & reminds me of a day spa. Really beautiful product
Another amazing product from Alpha-HIt says what it does, gently exfoliates while you’re wearing it! Feels like silk and great for dark spots too. Have had so many compliments on my skin after using this. Already recommended to so many people, this product will not disappoint at all. Part of my staple skincare routine now.
Great moisturiser for combination skinLove this moisturiser! Have been after a moisturiser that nourishes my skin without leaving it oily or dehydrated and right. Enjoy the fresh minty smell. Easy to use and hygienic jar. Very happy! Will be my new staple!
Good so farI’m a big fan of alpha h products and this cream has not disappointed so far. It leaves the skin looking plump and smooth. I haven’t tried it for long so I’m waiting to see if it starts helping with skin texture
Great moisturiserI purchased the Alpha - H balancing moisturiser after suffering from very dry skin from breastfeeding - a friend recommended it to me and I haven’t looked back.
Within 5 days of using it I noticed a huge difference around my cheeks and once flaky skin turned into dewy plump skin! 10 days later and my skin was back to what it was Pre baby.
The only downside to this magic potion is the light tingling where the skin is broken - ie breakouts. However the tingling goes away with a minute or so.
I still love it and will definitely be purchasing it again.
ALPHA-H BALANCING MOISTURISER & GENTLEI am on my second jar of Alpha H balancing moisturizer. It works well for my combination skin. It has improved my skin texture with constant usage, together with the Alpha H liquid gold & retinol products. I use it only in the morning (under makeup). It provides a nice, subtle dewy glow to the skin..
So good!I have combination skin with a few blackheads here and there and have found that this moisturizer along with other alpha h products has improved my skin overall soo much. I can definitely feel a difference when I miss a few days from using this as my skin feels duller and not as fresh. I really love the gentle exfol in this product along with the moisturization.
Great Moisturiser!I have dry acne-prone skin and I love how this moisturiser leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised! It has a cooling sensation that helps me feel refreshed as well!
Great for combination skinThis product is a nice light moisturizer for combination skin. Gives a nice smoothing, cooling sensation to your face.
Good MoisturiserI have combination Skin and its hard for me to find good moisturizer,
this moisturizer is good on my skin and I don't have any rough dry skin anymore
I really recommend this,,
LightThis is a very light moisturiser. It feels so good and my skin is always so smooth when I use it.
Great light moisturizerThe hydration I get from this is so good. 8ts light and great for either day or night... or both.
On the fenceThis product would have been custom-made for me were it not for the menthol, which I hate and which irritates my skin. I was a bit wary of the sweet almond oil in this, but it hasn't caused me any problems. However, the menthol certainly has, which means that I won't be repurchasing.
Use this at night.A really nice moisturiser that provides moisture to the skin without feeling heavy. I have oily/combo skin and am still prone to break outs at 30 and I really like that this moisturiser helps to combat acne while also being a good moisturiser, I use this product every second night and mix it with my marula oil. I wake up with bright and fresh looking skin.
Excellent face moisturiser!I have dry acne-prone skin and I love how this moisturiser leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised! It has a beautiful cooling sensation that helps me feel refreshed as well. It also has a light exfoliant in it which is great because my skin can't handle too many products so the fact that this is a two-in-one is really useful. I love it and I'm so glad that I discovered it and that Adore Beauty sells it!
Pure magicI have dry-combination skin and I don't get pimples. Only when my hormones are doing its thing, however this cream is magic nevertheless. It moisturises and it LITERALLY exfoliates as well. It's like 2 essential parts of skin care in one. When you put it on, you feel that tingle and coolness in your skin as you rub it in and it settles in, you know its doing its job when you feel that. I wake up feeling a lot brighter. Absolutely love it
BrilliantI first ever purchased a trial kit of this brand to see how my sensitive skin would react and boy do I love it. I am yet to buy a full size of this product because my trial size has lasted so long! It really is true what they say.. less is more
A great anytime moisturiser for combination skin!I've been using Alpha-H's Balancing Moisturiser & Gentle Exfoliant for four months now and as a person with pretty temperamental combination skin, this moisturiser has been a lifesaver for me. It's very light in texture, and sinks in almost instantly. It also has quite a tingly - almost stinging - sensation on application, and for that reason I avoid putting it around my eye area (I have an eye cream, anyway). But I used this all summer and every second day in autumn (alternating with Alpha-H's Essential Hydration Cream as the weather gets colder) and have noticed that my skin is clearer, more even, and with substantially fewer hormonal breakouts. Recommend to anyone with combination/oily skin!
In love!I love this product so much. Most moisturisers clog or just sit on my skin, but this one is pure perfection! I use it every morning with sunscreen and it smooths and thoroughly moisturizes my skin. With magical ingredients that help to keep those nasty radicals at bay, it's another great find, Wizardry in a bottle.
Let this night cream give you a tingling sensationI am a normal/combo skin with hormonal breakouts, I bought this product because the reviews were amazing and the ingredients appealed to me to help my skin out.
The moisturiser is definitely lightweight and fast-absorbing, my breakouts are minimised and my skin looks refreshed and hydrated. If you are looking for a moisturiser that can do everything, I would definitely recommend this one!
Fantastic Night CreamI really love this night cream. The added glycolic for exfoliating is amazing for my late 30's, oily, acne prone skin. Also found it to be amazing for my teenage daughter who suffers from Acne prone oily skin as well.
It felt light and hydrating but not heavy. Has a nice fresh scent that's not overpowering.
It is one I would use all year round for sure. Love the packaging also with it being a push down jar and the cream automatically dispensed out through a hole. Very hygienic!
WonderfulSubmitting my first ever beauty review, because this moisturiser is fantastic. My skin feels so soft and exfoliated. The moisturiser absorbs super quickly so you don't go to bed feeling like you have a tone of product on your face. The only reason I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars is because of the chemical smell.
Really good moisturiserI love that this products hydrates and exfoliates in one. If you are after a chemical exfoliant that isn't harsh this one is definitely worth trying out. Alpha H is a great brand that has gentle but effective products when used correctly.
Tingly and lovely smell!I LOVE this moisturiser! It is an easy and convenient way of delivering AHA's to the skin whilst moisturising at the same time. I find using Liquid Gold alone (which I know is the best way to reap the benefits) which is only 5% causes a bit too much irritation to my skin and I find the urge to itch, but even a 10% concentration of glycolic acid mixed into this light and silky moisturiser tingles but goes away within a couple of minutes. When I use this at night, my skin feels smooth to the touch the next morning and any blemishes I had are reduced in size and are less inflamed. The smell is yummy (I love anything minty!), will definitely be repurchasing this in the future.
Lightweight and hydrating for dry skinFirst time using this, and my skin already feels softer and smoother. I have combination skin, and have been feeling very dry coming into the colder season. My skin feels hydrated and not greasy with this light weight formula. I have just started using Alpha products, and haven't been disappointed yet.
4th time purchase!I usually wait a while before I write a review. The fact that I literally just received my 4th purchase of this makes me wonder what has taken me so long! Light weight, easily absorbed and smells divine! Not to mention the airtight packaging! This Is my go to moisturiser. One time, I got bored and purchased another... Only to barely make it half way until I repurchased Alpha H. I am a beauty therapist and I'm always on the look out for results driven skincare.This is Exactly that! I have recommended to close friends and family who have gone on to purchase!
Great night cream, could use in daytime alsoI've üst started using this on my combination skin at night and its lovely. Love the smell and the the look of skin in the morning. Definitely improvement in texture quickly, but haven't used it for long enough to see if there will be a difference in pore look or pigmentation, I would use this in the daytime too if I wasn't going to be out int he sun and using my SPF day cream. Great pump jar too, looks great on the bathroom vanity.
BrilliantI don’t think I’d switch to another moisturiser after using this one. I’m already into my second tub. It’s isnt overly greasy and I can put makeup on straight away without it feeling sticky. I feel like it has plumped my skin and calmed down the redness.
Love this moisturiserEvery time I switch off of this product, I regret it. I always come back. I have combination skin and when I get stressed, my skin acts up. I use this moisturiser as the night moisturiser and alternate with Alpha-H Liquid Gold or another moisturiser and bang...my skin is back to normal. I love this. Can't recommend it highly enough as a part of the PM routine. Only thing is I wouldn't use it in AM and PM as I find it's just a bit too much for my skin. You can use it in AM but need to use a sunscreen with it.
Smooth skinThis product make my skin feel so smooth in the mornings (when applied at night).
Best moisturiser I have ever used.I am always unsure using moisturisers with such a combination skin and oily T zone, I tend to find some products too greasy and leaving me with more breakouts than I started.
I purchased Alphah Balancing Moisturiser with a sense of caution, but I had nothing to lose as the last brand I purchased ended up in the bin and I was in need of something new. So far its been amazing. I feel my skin is soft and has a dewy finish but not greasy. It leaves my skin tingly for the first few minutes and then it feels hydrated. I put a bit extra on at night on my neck. I have been alternating between this and they hydrating gel as its summer, but I can't wait till winter to put this on and see how well it takes care of dry spots!
One for keeps!I've got combination skin with breakouts in the past but I noticed my skin tends to be abit drying now instead of oily as I aged. Regardless, I've been using AHA products for many years as it helps to control breakouts/acne.
I needed to change moisturizer with AHA as I've been using my current one for many years and feel that I need a change. I finally found this with the same content of AHA level.
Just started using it for nearly 2 weeks and am loving it! There's a very very slight tingling/cooling effect when I apply it but it goes away very quickly. I actually enjoy the feeling as it's telling me the product is at work. It feels abit thick when applying initially but it's not greasy and it absorbs into the skin immediately.
Skin feels soft afterwards. Will purchase again! :)
Alpha-h products are my new skincare everythingI love this moisturiser, it can be a little harsh if you have used the liquid gold, but if you just use one of their face washes and then this it feels amazing. I wake up with brighter skin. It's also helped a lot with my small amount of acne scarring (I don't have a lot of it but the scars are quite deep and this is literally plumping them out. I honestly cannot believe that every Alpha-H product lives up to its claims (for me anyway). I have spend thousands of dollars on my skin trying to fix the scaring (with skin needling and fillers - the skin needling did help but the fillets just ended up desolving over time). This skin care range has changed my whole face. I would 100% reccomded this. Think about what your skin needs and you can even go to the website and look into the products more and find what you think you need and then come back to Adore Beauty and buy them, start with one or two products and build that's what I did and then I kept adding and adding and I don't get any facials done anymore (I use to get them done monthly) and no more chemical peels. It's by far the best skincare range on the market and even better it's AUSTRALIAN OWNED!!!!
A special moisturiser!I really enjoy using this product! My skin feels great! It is SUPER fast absorbing so you do not need to warm the product in your hands first!
Not what I expectedI purchased this from a recommendation from a friend. It didn't do for me what I thought it would. I previously used SKII stem power which is great, but they are so different. Doesn't feel like it moisturisers enough for my liking.
Great productI am currently using this moisturiser in combination with the Alpha H Face the day kit and my skin is feeling amazing.
My skin is combination and has dry patches as well as really oily sections, I have noticed that it is more balanced, not as oily anymore or dry for that matter. Very happy customer.
Perfect moisturiser for meI still have combination skin in my 50's , and when researching a suitable moisturiser especially for oily areas I found this one and I love it. So true that a little bit goes a very long way. Thank you Alpha-H and Adore Beauty.
Radiance!WOW - I have recently started using this as my night cream, and I've instantly fallen in love! A little goes a long way. I wake in the morning to glowing and radiant skin. My congestion has reduced already and my skin feels smooth to the touch. I would be hesitant to use this in the morning due to the AHAs, and wear my sunscreen religiously as it makes the skin more sensitive to UV damage (Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF30+) with additional SPF top ups throughout the day. I have combination skin, and the lightweight consistency works perfectly for me.
Amazing!Absolutely amazing! I've never been so excited to see my skin clear up and my complexion become brighter, and I've only been using it for a week!
My skin isn't terrible... But a bit congested on the forehead and hormonal acne that just doesn't seem to want to go away. For some reason (this year) my skin has just started to want to stay like this forever.. until now! I started using it every second night by swapping my regular night moisturiser for this one. I didn't know how my skin would react to the glycolic acid, so I thought by having a break every second night I can assess how my skin is taking to it. My skin loves it! I wake up and my skin is soft and complexion is brighter.
I'm excited to see how my skin will look after using this moisturiser long term.
Great daily moisturiserI love this moisturiser as a daily. It is light and absorbs into my skin instantly. I have quite oily skin and have used this one for years. I have not found another on the market that works quite so well. I would highly recommend it. And as with all Alhph H products, a little goes a long way.
EssentialI was introduced to this by a friend, and now I cannot live without it. I love this product, my dry skin is now smooth and my scars have minimised. My skin felt great within the first week of using it and it goes back to being dull if I stop. I''m not a massive fan of the price, but I love it too much not to have!
- This is an update to my last review. I found this irritated my skin over regular use which is odd as other Alpha H products with glycolic are fine with my skin. Also did little to improve my complexion. A little goes a lonmg way so great value but it did make my skin shiny and as mentioned in my initial review I prefer a product with more antioxidant/vitamin inclusions.
- This is lovely and lightweight - not at all irritating on my sometimes sensitive skin. Only drawback for me is that I prefer my moisturizers to have inbuilt vitamins/antioxidants which this does not have.
- I love this product! The first time that I tried it, I quickly discovered that a little goes a long way and the amount that I squeezed out to do my face did that plus my neck, chest area and the back of my hands. Due to its extremely light texture, I didn't think that this would be moisturising enough for my skin in the cold weather but I was pleasantly surprised and it certainly was hydrating enough. This product has made a huge difference to the texture of my skin, particularly on my neck where I din't usually use any active ingredients. I think that this will definitely become a must-have product in my collection!
- This didn't work for me. I was looking for something for breakout prone skin but unfortunately my skin didn't adapt well to this product causing redness and sensitivity and just generally feeling unsettled.
- For me this feels more like a 'treatment' than a moisturiser, even though it does moisturise nicely. The glycolic makes my skin prickle a little, but that only lasts for a couple of minutes. The cream itself feels a little greasy but I have only ever used it at night so it hasn't been a problem. It leaves my skin looking great the next day. One tube has lasted me nearly a year (although I don't use it every day). I would repurchase this for times when skin feels a little dull or congested.
- Oh dear, I'm the only dissenting voice on this one. Didn't work for me unfortunately - caused breakouts and flakiness. A shame, because I love Alpha-h! Fantastic that it works for other people though, good products are hard to find!
