Yes, I’m back with one of my favourite brands, Apha-H. Remember when I swooned about the Alpha-H facial I had at the Fern Skin Clinic? I also try to limit my rave tweets about Apha-H Liquid Gold whenever it sorts out my break outs. This new tube of cleansing joy has made me very happy.
I won’t lie, there has been a little trial and error with this one. Usually with a balm or thick oil cleanser I’ll do my first evening cleanse with that and then follow with a lighter cleanser for my second round. I found I was still having loads of break outs and I even started to develop a bit of dermatitis. I was so worried that I’d found an Alpha-H product that I didn’t like but I think it was down to the second cleanser I was using. So I took out the second cleanse. There was an instant improvement. I’ve been happy ever since. This is one of those cleansers that you really need to milk up and emulsify before you rinse it off. Otherwise you’ll be left with a film on your skin post rinse. For me, it’s a night time cleanser. However, if you have more dehydrated skin then you could easily use it day and night.
The coconut oil gives it a luxurious feeling and the fragrance from the tangerine oil is to die for. You can get yours for £25.95 at Look Fantastic. Also keep your eye on QVC as there are often amazing Alpha-H deals on there as well.
