It’s the perfect choice for reactive and sensitive skin types. Whether you’re looking to restore suppleness and vitality to ageing skin or calm an irritated complexion, Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream is a skin saviour.

The aromatherapy benefit has a grounding effect on the central nervous system, making this a soothing and favourable scent for everyday use. Linoleic Acid and Evening Primrose Oil provide intense hydration whilst promoting healthy collagen production. These ingredients also have antioxidant properties to help calm skin and protect it from free radical damage.

Who should use Alpha-H Essential Cleansing Balm?


Essential Hydration Cream is best for those who want maximum hydration for dry and dehydrated skin. This cream is also suitable for those with sensitive and irritated complexions, as the Essential Fatty Acids help soothe and heal. Essential Hydration Cream has anti-ageing properties and helps promote collagen production, so it’s perfect for those whose skin has become drier in their later years.

 

What skin type is best suited to Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream?


Essential Hydration Cream has been developed for dry skin. This cream contains a deeply hydrating blend of essential oils and essential fatty acids to help nourish dry and dehydrated skin. Due to the high levels of oils and fatty acids in Essential Hydration Cream, the product isn’t best for oily skin types, as it can be too heavy on the skin.

 

If you have dry, irritated, or sensitive skin, Essential Hydration Cream is a great choice for a day and night moisturiser. The blend of Evening Primrose Oil, minerals, and essential fatty acids delivers immediate relief. Essential Hydration Cream is free of AHAs, so it won’t cause further irritation.

Amazing - 16-11-2018 by

Thic cream is amazing, my skin feels so hydrated and soft, i can notice that my fine lines appear smoother. Its also smells beautiful

Saved my dry skin! - 13-11-2018 by

This has done wonders for my skin. It's so hydrating and the effects last all day. It also didn't make me break out. A little goes a long way so it's definitely worth the money.

Alpha-H is my new holy grail brand!! - 09-11-2018 by

I have used Alpha-H products for over a year now and continue to recommend them to my friends, family, who ever will listen!
The Essential Hydration Cream is a part of my nighttime routine and I adore it. The packaging is such a genius idea. And I love the product! It’s a thicker cream but it’s great when you’re just feeling a little dull and limp. I apply this on my eyelids as well when I’m being too lazy to use an eye cream.

Highly recommend - 01-11-2018 by

I love all alpha h products but first let talk about the packaging its AMAZING luxury. This cream very hydrated is good for dry skin it's my daily morning routine I used as well before makeup made my skin smooth, hydrated my cheeks so soft I absolutely loved it.

Love the product - 31-10-2018 by

This product is amazing! Love this design.. Super hydrating.

Great all rounder for everyday hydration - 31-10-2018 by

I really enjoyed this moisturiser, great all rounder for everyday hydration on my combination skin. Will be purchasing again!

Awesome - 30-10-2018 by

I had a sample of this product and it feels amazing on the skin good for dry skin

Amazing - 30-10-2018 by

This is so hydrating and soft on the skin. I notice the difference right away and it literally smells like the cream they put on you when you have a facial!

Excellent - 25-10-2018 by

I purchased this product as I have post menopausal skin and my skin was looking dull and more dryer. The Essential Hydration Cream appears to be scented however it is not an overpowering scent and pleasant. I have found since using this product that my skin is more hydrated and less dull. I use this in the morning after I have cleansed my skin with the cleansing cube. I find this product is excellent and will buy again. I have purchased the cleansing cube, essential cream, liquid gold and the liquid gold night cream with the gold fleck's in it and I must say since I commenced using the Alpha-H my skin has improved ten-fold. I am truly impressed and will continue to buy Alpha-H. Absolutely love the products and find they work well with my other left over creams. Winner all round.

Hydrating and amazing scent - 23-10-2018 by

I have combination skin and battle with oiliness one day and dehydration the next. The dehydration has been causing flakiness lately and I’ve been searching for a moisturiser that will soak into my skin and keep it subtle and this does exactly that. Not only does it keep my skin feeling hydrated it’s doesnt overdo it and make me feel oily; it’s the perfect balance. I’m also a big fan of the scent. My only suggestion would be different packaging - I’d rather have more control over the amount of product and know how much is left but apart from that I’m a big fan!

ESSENTIAL!!! - 23-10-2018 by

My skin during the winter and coming into spring gets so dry and dehyrated and I read so many good reviews on this product that I decided to give it a try. I love Alpha H products and I was in need of a good moisturiser to really help hydrate my skin. I've been using this for the past few weeks now and boy oh boy I LOVE it!!
The product is lightweight and soaks into my skin beautifully. My cheeks are where I need my hydration so that i can get rid of some of the breakouts ive been experiencing lately and I am honestly loving this moisturiser. It sits gorgeously on the skin. I use it after my Vit C in the morn and after my Vit A at night :)

Amazing - 22-10-2018 by

This lovely product has helped my skin in so many ways. I see then redness, pigment and the overall hydration if my skin has improved. It’s not heavy and soaks into the skin well.

Dont waste your money - 19-10-2018 by

The only good thing is the smell. Product is too think and cluggy that when i pressed down nothing came out. Everytime i use this product i have to unscrew the lid, which defeats the purpose of the press down. Cant say i noticed any Hydration in my skin from using this.

Nice mosituriser - 16-10-2018 by

This is a nice moisturizer, however nothing amazing. I found it a little thick for my slightly oily skin. Didn't see any amazing benefits

A little heavy - 15-10-2018 by

This is a little heavy for my combination/oily/sensitive skin. I only use it if I'm particularly dry or after sun exposure.

Still my go-to night cream - 15-10-2018 by

This was the first moisturizer I tried from Alpha H, and even when I try other Alpha H creams for night, I keep coming back to this one. It’s simple but sometimes the basics are best! It’s extremely soothing and your skin will just drink it up immediately. I have combo / oily skin and this doesn’t feel heavy or greasy, it sinks in like a dream. I use every second night (alternating with Liquid Gold) over the vitamin A serum. Can even use for daytime before applying the Daily Essential Moisturizer (my sunscreen) if skin is feeling dry and tight. Will always have this one in my routine I think!

Not worth it - 12-10-2018 by

I tried this product as a cheaper version to ASAP Ultimate Hydration and instantly regretted it. I need more than double to not even nearly get the same hydration level. The tub some times doesn’t dispense the product so then you tap it again and it spurts out too much. Don’t love the smell. ASAP is just so much better and I just do not find my skin feels hydrated from this.

Love this stuff - 11-10-2018 by

My combination skin loves this moisturiser. My cheeks can become quite dry and this makes everything smooth and soft. I love the smell. Not sure if it will be too heavy in the warmer months. Not much comes out when you pump it...so you may need a couple of pumps. But if you can get away with one pump then this should last you ages.

Hydrating - 28-09-2018 by

A great hydrating moisturiser. Love the packaging although you can’t tell how much product is left. The rose scent is a little strong but overall a great moisturiser

Love it - 27-09-2018 by

So hydrating, easy to use packaging. Would highly recommend this everyday moisturiser to anybody of all skin types. Feels so lovely on the skin as well

Amazing! - 27-09-2018 by

I have bought at least 4 jars of this moisturiser- it’s amazing.
I have oily and sensitive skin and I’ve found that it’s the only moisturiser that hydrates my skin, as well as improving it.
I mix vitamin c powder, essential hydration oil and rose hip oil in depending on my skin needs and have no issues with it. My make up looks great over it, and I have found that my oils have been kept at bay longer.

My only critique- I just do, SO wish Alpha H would make and sell this magic in larger jars/portions!!

Perfect for dry skin - 25-09-2018 by

This moisturiser is absolutely awesome! Best moisturiser for my dry/ flaky/ sensitive skin. Repaired my dryness in 3 uses and left my skin super soft! Small amount goes a long way!

Fantastic! - 24-09-2018 by

Amazingly hydrating and lasts and lasts. Will continue to repurchase. Great for thirsty skin.

The best moisturiser iver ever used! - 24-09-2018 by

Absolutely love love this product! It has been a saviour to my dry/sensitive skin and the texture and smell is incredible! You only need to apply the smallest amount and one jar lasts me a few months! I use this every night after cleansing my face and every morning and i will definitely be purchasing again.

Perfect for my skin - 21-09-2018 by

This moisturiser is perfect for my skin - I have combination skin and this gives me the best of both worlds - adds in moisture without drying me out. It melts into my skin well and it's very lightweight. I'm not really into thick/heavy moisturisers that settle on top of your skin. I also have really sensitive skin and I have no issues with this. A lot of other products targeted at sensitive skin, still leave my face feeling irritated. Great for everyday use and one of my staples!

Wake up with your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed - 20-09-2018 by

Absolutely love this product, I use this hydration cream every night after cleansing with the ALPHA H Balancing cleanser, the next morning i wake up and my skin feels so hydrated, smooth and completely refreshed. Dont know what i would do with out this product love it defiantly recommend it and worth money for value!

Excellent for sensitive skin - 18-09-2018 by

If you have super sensitive skin then I highly recommend this moisturiser! It hydrates leaving your skin soft. I also found it lessened the redness on my face

A rare 5 star moment - 14-09-2018 by

I very rarely rate something 5 stars - particularly because I worry that it doesn't seem as trustworthy a review, but now onto my second bottle, I can't believe the actual difference this product makes on my face!!

I was excited but not as in love when i was not moisturising daily and swapping between multiple products, but this is now my absolute holy grail! It has improved the overall hydration of my skin AND cleared up dry patches.

I'm now able to use brushes to apply my foundation after a few years where the dry skin would just kick up way too much!

It's highly concentrated, so you only need 1-2 pumps! I had my last bottle last 7 months, including a 2 week stay from neice wherein all my products were overused by an excited teenager! Extremely good value for money, if you ask me!

Couples perfectly with most Alpha-H products, particularly their cleansers! 10/10 would fangirl again!

My daily go to - 13-09-2018 by

I have been using this moisturiser for over a year now and it's my absolute go to daily product. I have pretty dry skin through winter so I mix it with the Alpha H Age Delay Oil over night. Can't live without it!

Good hydrating cream - 13-09-2018 by

My skin is really dry and this hydration cream works great. Leaves my skin soft and hydrated. The cream is scented which is quite nice as well

The name says it all - 13-09-2018 by

I love this moisturiser, it really is so hydrating and keeps my skin looking and feeling great all day long. In usually have the problem of getting a bit dry/flakey in areas by the end of the day when wearing make up, but with this cream I don’t have that problem at all

LOVE - 13-09-2018 by

This is a fantastic cream - it smells amazing, it feels luxuriously thick without being heavy, and it absorbs wonderfully into the skin!

Dissapointing! - 12-09-2018 by

I bought this cream thinking it would be very hydrating and nourishing. It does nothing for my skin and my skin doesn't have a nice dewy look after application. The smell is very chemically and the rose smell is too overpowering. I will not be purchasing again.

Smells beautiful - 11-09-2018 by

Beautiful smelling cream and left my skin feeling soft. I don’t love how the product is dispensed as at times one pump doesn’t seem to administer enough cream.

Hydrating but no long term improvements - 11-09-2018 by

This product felt hydrating when used but I didn’t see any real improvement after using it for a year. It was highly recommended to me by a few friends but I just didn’t see the results

Alphah hydration cream just beautiful and highly recommended if you have sensitive skin as leaves your face feeling hydrated and nourished - 10-09-2018 by

Beautiful smell and my skin loves this hydration cream,this a a great moisturiser in conjunction with the liquid gold. It’s top reviews encouraged me to try this out and I was not disappointed. The price is reasonable considering it does what it says plus a little goes a long way. No1 moisturiser for me

Love this!! - 07-09-2018 by

Really love this, it has been my go to moisturiser for a while, i have tried a couple since but always seem to go back to this, don't love the packahing though, sometimes one pump can be the perfect amount but the jar I'm on now does not pump at all and have to unscrew it every time i use it, I did prefer the old one that did not have the rose but it's still a great cream. Always leaves my problem skin hydrated

Absolutely love this face cream! - 04-09-2018 by

I absolutely adore this face cream - I have combination oily sensitive skin and the cream applies smoothly with enough moisture for my skin type without being to heavy and does not irritate my sensitive skin at all! I have broken capillaries and even though I haven't seen much of an improvement on this front, I'm happy I've found a moisturiser compatible with my skin.

Very soft - 03-09-2018 by

Love this product. Lovely smelling. Not oily at all, very hydrating and smooth on your skin. My forehead is particularly dry and it instantly felt soft again. Will buy again.

Great hydrating cream - 03-09-2018 by

I use this as a night cream on alternate nights with my liquid gold and my skin loves it. It’s helped reduce the fine lines from dehydration that I have on my forehead.

Very Hydrating - 28-08-2018 by

I found this to be really nourishing and hydrating for my dry/sensitive skin. It absorbs well and instantly my skin feels good. Mix in the essential hydration concentrate for maximum hydration and glow

Wasn't impressed - 24-08-2018 by

I have extremely dry skin, especially around my nose and chin, this moisturiser wasn't as hydrating as I had expected it to be, found that my dry skin didn't improve, however it also didn't get any worse - would be a good moisturiser for some one who hasn't got very dry skin.

So nourishing - 24-08-2018 by

Such a wonderful product. Feels smooth on application and really works wonders when my skin is dry and playing up. Definitely recommend

Smells delish! - 22-08-2018 by

Lovely product, I would say great for normal to dry skin. However, not for VERY dry skin.

Smells amazing and hygienic packaging in terms of not having to dip your fingers in.

Love this - 20-08-2018 by

This stuff is amazing. Doesn’t make me break out like a lot of other hydrating creams and makes my skin so soft and glowy

Great moisturiser - 15-08-2018 by

works well and is very hydrating. What sells it for me is the packaging. i hate digging my fingers into a tub so this is really great!

Lovely moisturiser - 14-08-2018 by

I am a really huge fan of Alpha H and this mostursier is one of my favourites, I have oily skin but this winter it has been so dehydrated and this has helped a lot to put moisture back into my skin. It’s also one I have bought for my mother and sister who are both dry skin types and they both love it. The price point is also great

Lovely moisturiser - 14-08-2018 by

My skin which is starting to show signs of aging loved this cream! Even though I'm in my mid 40's, I still have combination skin which gets oily through my T zone, particularly during warmer months. I used this cream as a night moisturiser as it was a bit heavy for me for during the day, and I certainly noticed a difference in my skin, in that it was smoother, the skin tone was more even, and it even helped with the fine lines that are starting to appear. I also loved the rose geranium scent - overall a really lovely product!

BEST - 13-08-2018 by

I have normal to oily skin and prone to break outs! i have used so many different creams over the years and it always leaves my face looking really oily by the end of the day or when i work out, it gets really sweat quickly cause the cream hasn't absorbed quick enough. adore beauty sent me a sample of this cream and i am loving it. i had a few different samples collected over different orders so i am using those before i actually purchase but it definitely will be on my next order . my skin feels fresh and so smooth.. not heavy or oily at all

Overpowering - 13-08-2018 by

I received this product as a sample along with my other Alpha H products so was keen to try. Unfortunately I found this product very underwhelming. The perfume is overpowering and felt it almost making me queasy. After applying my skin felt gritty and tacky. I cannot comment on long term benefits but definately didn’t do anything for me.

Skin love - 09-08-2018 by

This cream is very good! I use it as a night cream and in the morning the skin is so smooth and hydrated. The smell is a little bit weird for me. The pump is so comfortable to use. Totally recommend this cream for every skin type

Leaves skin soft - 09-08-2018 by

Received as sample so used about three times. Used overnight and left skin soft in the morning.

Ultra Hydrating! - 08-08-2018 by

I am in love with this product! It gives instant hydration and makes my skin look and feel nourished, glowing and plump. It glides on smoothly and doesn't feel sticky or oily. I love to wear it overnight as a night cream and also undeneath my foundation to give it a nice dewy look. Highly recommend!

Very hydrating, smells a treat - 07-08-2018 by

I bought this cream after receiving a sample in my last Adore order. It smells lovely, goes on quite smooth and has a very hydrating effect. I have oily-ish skin, so my only issue is that if you put a little bit too much on it can really clog your pores; a little goes a long way.

I have oily skin and love this moisturiser! - 06-08-2018 by

I received this cream in a sample pack and as with all Alpha H samples there was enough for several applications.
I found this moisturiser to feel great on my combination skin (oily t zone & dry cheeks), it has a lovely smell and feels quite thick.
It might be due to other products I use & because I was using this cream at night, but it didn't seem to cause any outbreaks or excess oil.
I will be purchasing the full size once my current night cream runs out. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful product - 31-07-2018 by

Hi brought this cream after reading all the amazing reviews. It definitely hasn’t disappointed- absolutely beautiful. Makes my skin feel so soft and hydrated without the heaviness and oiliness. Super impressed by the price too!

AMAZING - 27-07-2018 by

I received this product as a sample and have been using it for the last week and by god it is amazing! the smell is amazing! and when you apply it applies so smoothly and evenly. It will leave your skin feeling soft and ever so moisturised. I would 100% recommend this product for anyone who has dry skin. I apply it every night and morning and don't find it too heavy for the day. Its honestly amazing

HYDRATION PERFECTION - 26-07-2018 by

I have used Alpha H for years and this is my holy grail moisturizer! I have combination skin that is dehydrated and this moisturizer sinks in and leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated all day. My favourite!

This used to be my go-to! - 25-07-2018 by

I have always recommended this cream to my friends and family and I have purchased many times... BUT they added Rose Geranium and I can no longer use it. The rose scent is so strong I can't handle it. It is a great cream, very hydrating but if you are sensitive to smell then i wouldn't recommend. I miss the original formula.. it smelt like a day spa! :(

Feels amazing and perfect makeup base - 24-07-2018 by

I have combo skin (more towards normal at the moment, but a little oily and dry some days) and I love this moisturiser, it's just too pricey for me at the moment. It's so soothing at night time after exfoliating, and a perfect makeup base before foundation, you can skip the primer with this one.

Soothing - 24-07-2018 by

A wonderful soothing cream for dry and sensitised skin. My combination skin became quite reactive and irritated after over exfoliating and this cream has played a major part in calming and rehydrating my skin. Smells pleasant (not too overpowering of florals), soaks in well, love the container to dispense only what’s needed (avoiding contamination to the remaining product).

Best moisturiser for dry skin! - 23-07-2018 by

I have very dry, sensitive skin and this moisturiser absolutely works wonders for my skin! I have used it for quite sometime now but had a break where I used other moisturisers. I noticed recently that due to the cold weather my skin was beginning to go flaky. After a couple of nights of using this again my skin is much more hydrated!! Definitely recommend this product!

YES! - 17-07-2018 by

its official - I am Alpha-H OBSESSED!!!!!!! cannot fault this product at all. especially great in winter to sooth that dry winter skin.

Hydrating, light and amazing! - 17-07-2018 by

This moisturiser is definitely my must have for morning and evening! Really smooth, hydrating and light. I’m in my mid 20’s with oily skin in the warmer months and dry skin in the cooler months, and this moisturiser is perfect all year round for me. Doesn’t feel heavy after applying and sits really nice under my makeup. Definitely recommend!

beautiful hydrating cream - 17-07-2018 by

This cream was a dream to use, smells beautiful and has a light but hydrating texture. Definitely recommend.

Super hydrating - 13-07-2018 by

This product does exactly what it claims to do! I use it every night and no longer have the feeling of dry skin when I wake up.

Hydrating - 12-07-2018 by

I like the richness of this cream and how hydrating it is since I have really dry skin. But unfortunately, I couldn't get past the smell. The rose smell is extremely overpowering to the extent it has started giving me the sniffles and an allergic reaction. I will definitely recommend this cream if you're not sensitive to strong smells.

Smooth and hydrating! - 11-07-2018 by

This came as a free sample and I quite liked it. I used it as part of my night time regime. It is quite light and left my face feeling soft and hydrated. I was actually looking for a new bedtime moisturiser at the time but decided against purchasing this as it was not recommended for oily skin, which I often suffer from. Would recommend for normal or dry skin though!

Hydrating goodness - 09-07-2018 by

Highly recommend this product! I have quite dry skin and this cream is super hydrating and plumping. I would recommend using this at night rather than the morning as it is quite thick and is a little too much to then put makeup over the top of.

My go to daily moisturiser - 07-07-2018 by

I love this hydration cream, I use it daily, sometimes twice daily if I am feeling a little dry or just need a moisture refresh. Essential Hydration Cream is the perfect name for this product.

Great... but pricey - 06-07-2018 by

I really liked this moisturiser. It was light enough that I could put makeup straight on top of it, but had enough oomph to it that my skin felt nourished throughout the day. I'd definitely recommend it as a day cream rather than a night cream though for this reason. The smell was lightly fragrant, and the container was easy to use (although towards the end I did have to open it up as it clogged. My only qualm is the price... I felt like I went through the tub really quickly, even though I applied as directed :(

Wanted to love it but it just didn’t work on my skin - 02-07-2018 by

I have very normal skin but it can get dehydrated from working inside everyday under heaters and air conditioners, so I wanted a lighter moisturiser for during the day that would keep me hydrated but not oily looking. I’ve never had sensitive skin or skin prone to breaking out however using this moisturiser gave me a slight burning feeling around my nose and chin and I broke out like I was a teenager. At first I thought it was because I had introduced glycolic acid into my skin routine around the same time I started using this but after nearly two months of thinking my skin was “purging” I stopped using this moisturiser and my skin cleared up within a week and has never looked better. I’m disappointed because I really wanted to love this but it just wasn’t for me. After doing a Google search I did find only a few reviews where the person had the same reaction so obviously not a common thing to happen. However it does smell great and feels great on the skin (except for the slight burn), it’s not too heavy.

Hydrating - 29-06-2018 by

A light moisturiser that absorbs into the skin seamlessly. Perfect under makeup. Has made my skin feel plump and less inflamed. Not a huge fan of the dispenser. Would love to see the product sold in a larger quantity. All in all, a great product for all skin types!

So hydrating - 25-06-2018 by

This moisturiser is so soft and kind on the skin and you can see the benefits almost straight away! It goes on so easily and you only need a small amount. Beautiful product!

Nice - 25-06-2018 by

A hydration cream that does exactly that. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin like others can and it soaks in well so no issues with applying makeup on top.

Moisturising but a bit rich! - 19-06-2018 by

I found this moisturiser to be very moisturising, which is great in winter, however it is quite thick and because I have a tendency to break out it is too thick for my acne-prone skin. However it does leave my skin feeling really soft and moisturised!

Bring back ylang ylang scent - 19-06-2018 by

I received a sample of this and loved the scent - it also made my skin feel soft and clear within 2 nights of using it, which made me purchase a bottle. My bottle arrived and after using it for about a week, it didn't seem to give me the same results as the sample size. I checked the ingredients of both and found that they've changed it from ylang ylang to rose geranium. While I think this product is okay, I don't think I'll be purchasing it again unless the bring back the old formula.

Beautiful texture - 18-06-2018 by

This has a gorgeous texture, and a lovely rose scent. It’s a thick creamy product, but doesn’t feel too heavy once it’s on. Best used as a night cream I think. The only reason I’m giving it 4 stars is because the dispenser in the lid stopped working shortly after I got it, so I need to unscrew it every time. Doesn’t take away from the quality of the product though.

Expected more from this! - 14-06-2018 by

I don't know why but I feel like this isn't as moisturising as I expected. The scent is also a bit odd and I feel like you don't get that deeply hydrating feeling that you get from a good moisturiser. It's an OK moisturiser, but if you're expected something more hydrating, it may not be enough!

hydrating without being heavy - 13-06-2018 by

I have combination skin and find this moisturiser absorbs nicely and is not heavy on my skin. I alternate with a face oil and find it is the perfect balance.

Winter Saviour - 13-06-2018 by

This saves my skin in winter. Great cream if you're looking for maximum hydration. Does tingle at first but you just know it is working!

Stinks - 13-06-2018 by

This was my fave moisturiser howerever the formula has changed it was perfect before now my skin stings and it stinks

where's the original? - 12-06-2018 by

I struggle with serious dehydrated, combination skin- which is incredibly frustrating. I tried the Alpha-H range a few months ago and loved the way my skin felt with the Essential Hydration Cream, I must have use and original one because it had a peppermint smell and was delicious and this one has a heavy rose smell, but overall still doing the same thing, it makes my skin feel plump and smooth, and I am the happiest I have been in my own skin since forever

Why the scent? - 12-06-2018 by

I love what this does for my dehydrated skin - absorbs quickly and leaves me baby soft... but the scent?! Urgh. Too strong for my liking. I will continue using it until I finish the tub, but I’m not sure I’d repurchase on the scent alone. If you can handle the smelly though, it’s an amazing moisturiser

Too heavy for me - 11-06-2018 by

While I love Alpha-H's cleanser and Liquid Gold range, I have yet to find a moisturiser from the range that really suits me. I find this waaaaay too heavy for my combo skin type, and I'm not really a fan of strong scents in skincare (natural or otherwise). Other people I know absolutely love this, so it's really down to what's best for your skin. This wasn't for me, but I'm sure it will be someone else's favourite!

Quick absorption and pleasant smell - 07-06-2018 by

I was gifted this product years ago by a beautician friend. Sadly (stupidly!), I didn’t really use it or keep up with a skin care routine back then.
Recently I began to become sick of hiding my terrible skin with makeup and started looking into a skin care routine. I needed something to help with my uneven skin tone, huge pores, breakouts and the signs of aging starting to appear. I loved the Alpha H Liquid Gold (also gifted years ago!) so decided to try it all out again, and stick to it religiously this time! That was three weeks ago- and wow- my skin has changed so much! This moisturizer is perfect for me too! I wanted something quick that would absorb instantly almost! And it does! I hate stickiness and greasiness and this certainly is neither! The tub is super well designed too. One pump down is the perfect amount to cover my face and neck. The smell is nice and not strong at all. I use it after applying a serum and together they aren’t heavy on my face. It is a little pricey compared to a supermarket or pharmacy moisturizer- but you only need a little each time and knowing it slides on nicely and absorbs quickly makes it very much worth it.

So nourishing - 06-06-2018 by

Recieved a sample of this in the mail and im in love, its so nourishing and my dry skin soaks it right up!

Great winter cream for combination skin - 05-06-2018 by

I have combination skin that can be quite temperamental and has a tendency to dry out in winter - but after reading a number of positive reviews on this moisturiser, I decided to give it a shot! Three weeks in and I haven't been disappointed. I use it every second morning after cleansing with Alpha-H's Balancing Cleanser, alternating days with Alpha-H's Balancing Moisturiser and Gentle Exfoliant cream. I find the addition of the Hydration Cream to this routine has really softened my skin without my skin reacting, or making it any more oily or shiny. The only thing I don't like is the strong rose scent - it's stuffy and overpowering upon application, but thankfully it fades quickly. Overall though, I'm really pleased and will use this through winter!

Beautifully luxurious cream! - 30-05-2018 by

This is a fantastic cream - it smells amazing, it feels luxuriously thick without being heavy, and it absorbs wonderfully into the skin! Will leave your skin feeling moisturised and happy, and won't clog pores. Have repurchased, and will do so again.

Bring back the old scent!! - 25-05-2018 by

The one and only cream moisturiser to actually work on my skin. Light, super hydrating and just feels incredible. A staple to my routine. However, I was extremely disappointed to receive this new Rose Geranium scent. It’s a sickly strong smell and I’m really not a fan. I loved the old Evening Primrose and Ylang Ylang scent. Putting this on in the morning really woke me up, felt fresh and soothing. Also not a fan of the tub it comes in. I feel like I’m being ripped off because it’s not exactly a full tub that it’s perceived to be. Shame... I finished this tub today, but sadly won’t be purchasing again until they offer an alternative to rose scented products.

Rose and geranium love! - 25-05-2018 by

This moisturiser smells amazing and makes my skin incredibly smooth overnight! It will always have a home in my collection! The packaging is unusual, but mine works fine, however I can see how annoying it would be if it malfunctions!

Product CAN be amazing... packaging flaws though - 24-05-2018 by

The cream itself is extremely hydrating - so much so that if you've got oily patches on the skin I recommend avoiding them (or your whole face) in the mornings. The hydration cream works perfectly to recover from some of the harsher products I put on my face at night.

My main issue with the product is the jar. My first jar stopped pumping after 3 weeks. The cream inside the tub had congealed and wasn't runny enough to move through the pump. The wonderful Adore Beauty Customer Service Team provided me an exchange for a different jar, however, while it has been a few weeks longer than before, I am once again starting to have trouble getting the product out of the jar so i suspect it may have started to congeal once again.

Still amazing though, would probably repurchase regardless as it really is fantastic after a massive acid tone!

Changed formula is irritating - 21-05-2018 by

Like others have mentioned, this was previously an unscented formula. I received a sample in a prior Adore order and loved it - perfect for my skin. I immediately bought a full sized product. Unfortunately it now contains rose geranium which has completely changed the way the product works for me. It is irritating and drying. I honestly hate it :( First time I've bought something from Adore that I haven't been happy with.

Great value for extra hydration without outbreak - 17-05-2018 by

I have combination skin that easily reacts with outbreaks despite being almost 50. I also get super dehydrated in cold weather. This cream softens & hydrates noticeably - a little goes a long way - but without the breakouts. Works for me before bed or a little under my sunscreen if skin is a little dry. Smells divine too!

Beautiful product - 13-05-2018 by

I have oily aging skin (I’m 44). I was worried as the consistency is quite thick, I thought it would be to oily, but it applies beautifully, and melts into my skin.
Really nice in winter months too.
Highly recommend, I will definitely repurchase.

wonderfully absorbent - 10-05-2018 by

so hard to find a good moisturizer that plumps up your skin but doesn't leave any greasy feel.. this makes my skin very moist, it feels supple and so smooth, just sinks in.. perfect medium for me. I would use a serum or two with this during winter but all round its a fantastic product.

Lovely every day moisturizer! - 08-05-2018 by

I'm 26 years old with combo skin and have been using The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors for the past few years that I loved, but I was feeling like I needed something a little more. I was pretty hesitant to change up because my skin reacted so well with the ordinary, as in I never had breakouts (before I had very bad breakouts from every high end moisturizer I had tried) but my skin has taken well to Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream. I get the odd breakout but my skin feels softer overall. The only thing I don't like about this is the smell.. I'm not a fan of the natural scent at all but that's not a make or break for me!

Skin feels like silk - 08-05-2018 by

I purchased this product after being pregnant and my skin turning super sensitive. I am so impressed, my skin has not flared up at all, and actually feels so so soft and silky that I can’t stop touching it. It’s beautiful and light and feels really nice on. My skin is really dry at the moment and this hS moisterised it nicely.

Almost perfect for me. - 08-05-2018 by

Love this product - it quenches my dry skin and is really comfortable. Light enough to apply a couple of times during the day. I got a sample and bought the full size but was disappointed with the scent that has been added. It's not that pleasant, and I think it's unnecessary - why change something already great? I'll still use the product, but I wish I could find a supply of unscented cream. Bring back the unscented one please Alpha-H!!

Love it! - 29-04-2018 by

A hydration cream that does exactly that. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin like others can and it soaks in well so no issues with applying makeup on top. Quite a strong rose fragrance but I quite like it.
