    Alpha-H - Essential Hydration Cream with Rose Geranium

    Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream with Rose Geranium Reviews

    It's ok
    It feels nice on the skin but I don't feel that it provides enough hydration.
    My fav
    I will not stop using this cream at all.
    This moisturizer saved my skin, my face was full of dry batches and was very sensitive and irritated for a couple of days and nothing helped it then I remembered having a sample from it and I used it, without exaggerating the dead skin fell off on my neck and it repaired my skin in only 2 days I could not care any less for the smell tbh it was too great I highly recommend
    Moisturises my skin all day
    I have eczema so am prone to dry skin, but this keeps my face and neck moisturised all day!
    It's a no from me
    I read a stack of great reviews but none on the new formula, which I wasn't aware of. It's not so much the smell although it's very fragrant, it's the burning like sensation I get for a few seconds when I apply it. I think its all the essential oils in it? My routine is to cleanse, acid, essence, vit c or vit a, hydration serum, then top it all off with a moisturizer. But this one stings me I don't like it at all. The pump and packaging is the best part.
    Hate the new formula
    The rose smell is rank and the texture is off, not as smoothing as the previous ylang ylang incarnation. Won't be buying again.
    New formulation is a no for me
    I first bought the Essential Hydration cream almost 2 years ago or so, and fell in love. So much so, that I bought a new tub as soon as I ran out without much thought. To my surprise, when I first applied the second tub, the scent of geranium was overwhelming; they'd changed the formula. Why do it in the first place is beyond me, as it was the perfect moisturizer - probably the best I've ever tried. Despite the strong (and, in my opinion, sickening) smell, I persevered and kept on using it, as texture-wise, I still loved it on my combination skin. Unfortunately, not only does the new formula have a scent that I hate, turns out, it also breaks me out. Booooo. In summary, great moisturizer: if your nose and skin can handle the geranium they added. For me, it's a no. Hopefully, they'll bring back the old formula.
    The new recipe...
    They have changed the scent of the cream which has always smelled fresh. Now it smells unnaturally like roses - it’s just too much. I’m quite disappointed that the cream I liked so much now gives me headaches because of the strong smell. So if you don’t like strong smelling creams I don’t recommend it.
    Left a film on my skin
    I found the scent pleasant and natural which I love about all Alpha-h products but this cream really struggled to hydrate my skin. It didn’t absorb well and I could feel it siting on top of my skin for most of the day. I love the concept of the packaging too but mine struggled to pump out anything which made it a small argument in the mornings that I really could have done without. For the price and lack of hydration to my skin on this occasion, I wouldn't recommend.
    When I first tried the cream I felt disappointed because of the quite strong smell of ylang-ylang essential oil. But for now I have to say that the smell doesn't bother me at all but the cream moistens my skin and makes it supple and calm. In winter it's very important. And it's very hygienic that there is a pump at the middle of the jar and I can take as much cream as I need without putting my fingers into the cream itself. Certainly will repurchase.
    I am at my second jar of the cream. It looks heavy on skin at first but gose into skin so nicely and it disappeared after few min into skin. I apply my makeup after it and I don't need the primer.
    My skin saviour
    I tried this product in the tester pack and fell in love. One application in the morning is now enough for my moisture needs (I have combi skin after years of acne treatments). I apply this the morning after Liquid Gold too and it still works just as well as on untreated skin. It's a great base for make up and I have noticed that my forehead no longer struggles to hold foundation and contour since using this product. It has a slight chemical smell but I quite like it.
    I took a bit of a gamble buying this as I have very acne prone skin which seems to be set off by certain moisturisers. I like Alpha H as a brand however, so thought I would give it a whirl and am so happy I did. It seems quite heavy when it first comes out the pump, the smell isn't bad but it is quite strong (but it has no added fragrance, so it is all natural). Once it is on your face the smell subsides quickly, and your skin is left hydrated, super silky and soft. It sinks in very quickly and works really well under makeup.
    So moisturising
    I got a sample of this in the Cult Beauty Box. It looks like a small tube, but I only need the tiniest amount. So pretty long lasting. Love the fresh smell and hydrates my skin like crazy.
    My new HG Moisturiser!
    I got this in the new Caroline Hirons box and used it the first night I had it, I loved it so much I have actually bought another bottle already so I don't run out! It's the perfect balance for my combination, sensitive skin. It calms my sensitivity, reduces my rosacea, balances my skin as its moisturising but not oily at all and sinks into the skin quickly - I absolutely hate feeling greasy!! My new HG moisturiser, thanks Cult Beauty & Caroline
    Top Marks
    I too have enjoyed this product courtesy of the Cult Beauty Box by the legend that is Caroline Hirons!! I will never review a product without trialing it for at least two months. I have now used the entire tube and will most certainly be repurchasing. Appearances can be deceptive. It looks gritty/lumpy when squeezed from the tube but upon application to the skin is soft, silky and lightweight. It sinks into the skin almost immediately and has caused no irritation in any way. It is, as you would hope from the name, super hydrating, and a little goes a long way. My 30ml sample has lasted me ages. I do only use AM at post serum stage but can very quickly get on to applying my foundation - excellent when I'm in a rush for work. As with most Alpha H products, top marks!!!
    Great, why not spf?
    I would give this 5 stars, but for the fact there is no spf in the product. It is light, sinks in with no greasy layer and smells wonderful. However, there is no spf! Moisturisers with no spf bug the life out of me, why do they do it!
    Nice moisturizer, but could be cheaper
    Feels good on the skin, but its really nothing special and the amount is really tiny for this price.
    ALPHA-H Essential Hydration Cream ( 50ml )
    I received this as a sample and I had to purchase this straight away, it’s helped my skin so much and I have oily skin and it’s helped me not to oily. This is now the only moisture I use on a daily basis.
    Such a shame they changed the scent
    I was delighted to have found this face cream earlier in the year. My skin is more hydrated, smooth and healthy, and I decided to ignore the recent reviews and re-order it as I loved it so much. Sadly it's true, the lovely rose geranium scent has been replaced by something very medicinal smelling an off-putting. I'll keep going due to the amount of money I've spent on it, but doubt I'll be buying it again
    Good stuff
    I loved the firmness this cream gave me. It comes in a pump but it very good for keeping the face hydrated. I also found the smell quite nice I know a lot of people are put off but I quite liked it.
    Just okay
    The smell of this product gives me a headache. I find that it starts to smell eggy a few minutes after application so I find it difficult to use on my face because of the smell. However, it's not at all greasy so I imagine it would be great for people with dry skin who do not mind strong smelling products.
    Great product
    I use it in morning it absorbs very quickly into the skin very lightweight but hydrating on the skin. I have very dehydrated skin and is more water based then oil so doesn't make me break out as oil cream dose.
    Lovely face cream
    I bought this one after seeing Caroline Hirons review, she said that it’s one of her favourite face creams so I decided to try it. And yes it is lovely!!!! It’s light but rich at the same time. I have a face who’s very reactive and this one just did my skin look amazing. I would buy it again.
    Great product
    Really love this product. Great moisturise and works well as a primer for my makeup.
    Skin looks so good
    This cream is very moisturising, soothing and smells amazingly fresh. I have combination skin with hormonal breakouts and this product has helped with my oiliness, dryness and also with my breakouts. You can really see the difference: there are almost no pimples and if, they heal really fast. The packaging is also very hygienic and keeps the cream fresh since it has a pump. If you are not sure whether to buy it or not, you should give it a try.
    Really good moisturiser
    I liked this cream. It seemed quite thick coming out of the tube, but smoothes out nicely on application. Left my face moisturised and feeling smooth. Didn't love the scent which is quite chemical, but it's not overpowering and doesn't linger. All in all a good product but there's nothing about it that would make me rush out and buy more once my deluxe sample runs out.
    does the job
    I have dry skin so I wanted a cream that would be hydrating but didn't feel heavy. This does the job very well. I really like the packaging as well - good for travel.
    What happened to the tube?
    Bought this in April 16 and it was a tube with a pump. Have they changed the packaging? The formula is very light, feels more of a gel than cream consistency. The product was absorbed rather than sitting on my skin. The pump got the very last bit out of the tube, I wish all my skincare products came in this packaging. The only downside for me personally was the smell, did not really like it (ylang ylang).
    My daily fave
    I first discovered this in Caroline Hiron's cult beauty box. At first I thought it smelt a bit like toothpaste but after using it I didn't care. It makes my skin feel and look hydrated without being shiny and I actually have learned to love the smell. It's my absolute favourite moisturiser!
    Very nice. I got it in the Beauty Box, it was a sample so came in a squeeze tube where it looks almost grainy when you get it out. But it feels nice on the skin and it did hydrate my face pretty well.
    On my top shelf
    I can only echo the other reviewers... I also got to experience this product via the Cult Beauty Box. It does look grainy and lumpy coming out of the tube, but is in fact soft, hydrating and refreshing. And it smells great too. I like to use serums/oils in my routine and find this to be a very good, light weight moisturiser to seal it all in. Especially in the summer months!
    Smells amazing. Hydrates perfectly. Matte finish. My new staple moisturiser.
