I have never really fallen in love with a moisturiser. On reflection it's probably because I have combination oily skin and find it really difficult to find products that will hydrate and smooth but not turn me into a greasy mess by midday. I want the glow but not the grease if that makes sense?!
That was until I got a sample of the Alpha H Essential Hydration Cream in one of Caroline Hirons (aka skincare goddess) Cult Beauty boxes towards the end of 2015. I was immediately impressed with the incredibly light, almost gel like formula that absorbed quickly but left my skin super soft and plump feeling. To seal the deal, the lovely way my foundation applied and lasted and the fresh subtle scent (ylang-ylang & peppermint) pushed me to order the full size in fear of running out!
Several months later I still keep coming back to it and can't imagine not having it in my skincare stash. If you are looking for a calming, balancing moisturiser that gives oodles of hydration without the shine then I highly recommend you give this a try.
