If you have been following me for a while you’ll know how much I adore Alpha-H! No matter how many products I try I always seem to come back to these. Why? Well it’s simple – they work! Keep reading to find out more about why these are my HG products…
Welcome back to all the long time followers and hello to all you fresh new faces that came over from Alpha-H’s Instagram Story (oh and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram)! Filming that story was totally out of my comfort zone! I mean I was makeup free, had just woken up and I FILMED (I usually just write), but I loved it! I didn’t have much time to chat in depth about the products so if you wanted more information on the products you’ve come to the right place!
I first tried Alpha-H when I was going through a period of really bad skin. I started with the Liquid Gold and was blown away. I loved the results so I thought I would try the rest of the products and from there my love just grew. I now exclusively use Alpha-H products and while I do try other skincare, I substitute it into my routine. So if I am trialing a face wash and serum I will just replace the Alpha-H ones during the test period and then go back to them after. I went through my routine on the Alpha-H’s Instastories and thought I would continue here in depth.
My morning routine is nice and simple mainly because I am not a morning person. I start with the Balancing Cleanser. This award winning cleanser is rich in Vitamin E and Aloe Vera to repair and hydrate the skin while also rejuvenating and moisturising the complexion. I absolutely love this cleanser and have found that it helps my dry skin in Winter and keeps my oily skin at bay in Summer. The creamy cleanser also smells amazing and it is being detergent free!
Following this I use both Vitamin B and C Serums from the Vitamin Profiling Kit. The Vitamin B Serum builds moisture and collagen which is really important to me. I find it also helps my pigmentation and redness. The serum is fortified with Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) that enhances the skin natural barrier while promoting suppleness and elasticity while helping diminish the appearance of uneven skin tone. The serum also contains Chia Seeds, Ferulic Acid , Copper Peptides and amino acids to create a kind of daily protein supplement for your skin. The Vitamin C Serum is blended with botanicals and hyaluronic acid to deliver superior antioxidant benefits. The intensive serum stimulates collagen production to assist in the improvement of radiance, elasticity and skin texture while also reducing pigmentation, refining the pores and provide ongoing protection against sun damage. I have used Vitamin C for about a year now and I find my skin is plumper, firmer, more radiant and look healthy. The serums penetrate the skin deeper than a moisturiser can and creates a beautiful complexion.
I then use the Multivitamin Super Cream – in case you can’t tell I LOVE Vitamins! The cream is literally amazing and does everything you could ever need in a moisturiser! It optimises the cell function and boosts the skin defence against environmental damage while boosting hydration. Fun fact – less than 1% of orally ingested vitamins reach your skin so this acts as a multivitamin in a jar that provides your skin with a much needed boost. This is a non-AHA cream is infused with vitamins A, B, C and E to combat skin fatigue and maximise skin health. The cream is further enhanced by Green Tea Extract and Centella Asiatica. I adore this cream and how it leaves my skin feeling hydrated, smooth and plump.
My final step in my morning routine is the Protection Plus Daily SPF50+ which is the most important step! The broad spectrum SPF50+ protects against UVA and UVB rays and future proofs against photo ageing. The suncream is non-greasy, non-whitening, sheer and nourishes the skin. The sun cream contains Pomegranate, Enzogenol and Mango Seed Butter to leave the skin silky, protected and beautiful. This is the first suncream I have used that doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily or greasy!
During The Day
I don’t only use Alpha-H morning and night, I also use the products throughout the day. I love the Daily Essential Vitamin Mist when I am feeling kind of blah and need a bit of a wake up. This uber refreshing mist also protects against blue light (from laptops, phones, etc) and urban ageing. The mist contains Moringa Seed Extract, Rose Flower, Roses Geranium and Orange essential oils. Oh and obviously vitamins A, B, C and E to top up vital antioxidant levels. I adore the Liquid Rose Gold Handcream and use it throughout the day. The cream contains 10% Glycolic Acid to speed up cell renewal and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. This works in conjunction with the 2% Lactic Acid that minimising the cuticle whilst conditioning the keratin and Vitamin B5 to rejuvenate the appearance of dry, rough and peeling nails. The cream also contains Olive Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil and so much more. This creams is amazing and my hands have never looked better! I also use the Absolute Lip Perfecter throughout the day when I don’t have lipstick on. The multitasking lip treatment is a combined serum and balm infused with Peppermint, Wild Mint and Honeycomb Extract. The lip balm offers long-term hydration benefits and protection from environmental aggressors. Plus it smells amazing!
My evening routine begins with the Balancing Cleanser. The cleanser also completely removes all traces of face and eye makeup which I love! The 3-in-1 cleanser is uber creamy and works to correct the skin’s natural pH balance, replacing the need for an eye makeup remover, face wash and toner. I do still remove my makeup in the shower with a Makeup Eraser before washing my face, however this cleanser replaces the need to double cleanse.
Following this I use either the Liquid Gold OR the Micro Cleanse Super Scrub. I alternate these products in my evening routine as they are too strong to use every night and too strong to use together. The Liquid Gold (aka my HG product) is amazing! The NINE time award-winning product is a resurfacing treatment that uses a low pH delivery system to diminish wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage. The treatment works as an overnight facial to brighten, revitalise and improves the appearance of the complexion. On the nights I use Liquid Gold I do not use any other products so that the amazing Liquid Gold (containing 5% cosmetic grade Glycolic Acid) can renew my skin. Every alternating night I use the Micro Cleanse Super Scrub. The supercharged scrub exfoliant is literally a one minute treatment that leaves your skin feeling amazing! The skin-loving ingredients, such as 12% Glycolic Acid, Jojoba Beads and Caffeine, enhance your complexion leaving it brighter, clearer, fresher and smoother. The scrub achieves a professional microdermabrasion result at home!! I love the zesty blend of Peppermint Oils and Cucumber that smell amazing and also help banish fatigue. This scrub leaves my skin feeling so silky smooth its amazing.
On the nights I use the Micro Cleanse Super Scrub I follow up with Vitamin A and Vitamin E (also from my Vitamin Profiling Kit). The Vitamin A 0.5% Serum is a potent, antioxidant skin renewal treatment that uses the exfoliating benefits of Vitamin A in a hydrating formula for a smoother, softer complexion by supporting the natural renewal process of thespian. This anti-ageing serum diminishes the appearance of uneven skin tone while improving the skin’s firmness, texture and tone. The best advice my Mum every gave me was that you are never too young to use anti-ageing products. I have been using them since I was 20 and my skin looks young and is firm. I follow this with the Vitamin E serum which provides hydration and enhances the skin’s natural barrier. The calming, hydrating qualities of Vitamin E also help to improve the appearance of rough, dry skin. It also softens trauma marks such a post blemish marking. I love how this serum has made my acne scars virtually invisible.
I then lather more of the Multivitamin Super Cream over the skin to lock in all the goodness. To finish up I use the Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream which is an amazing eye cream that contains my favourite product – Liquid Gold! The eye cream is the ultimate topical corrector for the eyes with quadruple peptide technology, Lime Pearl AHA’s and skin brighteners alongside illuminating diamond particles for a soft focus photo finish.
As I hop into bed I top my lips with the Absolute Lip Perfecter. The Absolute Lip Perfector works as a powerful nighttime anti-ageing treatment that leaves my lips feeling soft, supple and smooth. I then rub some Liquid Rose Gold Handcream on my hands and doze off to sleep.
I hope that helps anyone who came here for more information of the products! Alpha H also have trial kits if you want to try before you buy any full sized products!
