Alpha H Skincare

If there’s something that works against my pigment spot it’s exfoliation with glycolic acid. On the right side of my forehead at my hairline I suffer from hyperpigmentation. I’ve a lot of pigment in my skin and become tanned very quickly, one spot on my forehead has thereby the tendency to flare as soon as I sit in the sun. Every day, summer and winter, I use spf on my face but I notice that this isn’t enough.

Where I do benefit from and is making my pigment spot barely visible is exfoliation with glycolic acid. I always used these kind of products by Paula’s Choice and they work great. But sometimes it’s good to try new products and I heard so many good stories about the Alpha-H skincare products, especially among the beauty bloggers, that I really needed to try them out. 

About the brand Alpha-H (source alpha-h).

ALPHA-H is a multiple award winning cosmeceutical brand from Australia; women and men who want to improve the quality of their skin and actually want to see results, regardless of age, budget or lifestyle. What makes Alpha-H unique are the high rates of glycolic acid in combination with high doses of enzymes, peptides, vitamins and anti-oxidants, and (where appropriate) kept low pH value of the products. The skin is drawn out of her comfort zone so that it will “wake up” and gets activated into the deeper layers of the skin; where new skin cells, collagen and elastin fibers are made. Ordinary skincare often doesn’t contain these ingredients, in (too) low dosage or has a pH value which doesn’t contribute to effective results. If you suffer from pigmentation, (premature) aging or acne; with Alpha-H you go for skin improvement without stimulate or irritate your skin excessively; it’s in fact suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

Sounds promising! I tested two products from this brand, especially in the field of aging and pigmentation.

Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub and the Alpha-H Liquid Gold.

Alpha-H Liquid Gold is the product on which the brand got his big reputation and everyone has raved about.

This product is known as the Lazy Girls Night product (I felt immediately addressed ha!) Because after you apply this product you don’t have to do anything for the best result. This overnight facial reduces fine lines, blemishes and hyperpigmentation. Use it as a night care and apply with a cotton pad on your face, neck and décolleté. Of course you can still apply a moisturizer after using the Liquid Gold but it works intensively if you don’t. Actually it’s a 4 in 1 product; tonic, serum, exfoliant and moisturizer.

Liquid Gold has the right combination of 5% glycolic acid and low pH value so that the glycolic acid is best effective. This gives a boost collagen and hydration for an improved skin texture. Suitable for all skin types.

This scrub contains as much as 12% glycolic acid which means that it removes dead skin cells while moisturizing your skin. This microdermabrasion in a tube soaks dead skin cells and refreshes the complexion. After a while the skin will be refined, wrinkles less deep and pores less visible. By the refreshing cucumber and mint it has a cooling effect on the skin. The scrub is deep cleansing and antibacterial. Also ideal if you suffer from keratosis pilaris (red bumps on your upper arms).

Use this scrub every other day to clean skin and let it sit on the skin for a little while for a more intense effect. Suitable for all skin types but test it first on a small patch of your skin when your skin is hypersensitive.


The Liquid Gold does a lot for my skin texture, it keeps my hyperpigmentation under control, gives a fresh, smoother and fuller appearance and blemishes are less likely to emerge. The first few times you briefly feel a slight tingling sensation after application.

The Micro Cleanse Scrub is also highly recommended. It gives an incredibly soft skin with a beautiful sheen. Waste is removed and your skin is perfused again. Other products such as moisturizers are better absorbed into the skin after using the scrub.

It’s especially the combination of these 2 products that results in a more even and bright skin tone. These are certainly products that I’m going to buy again and I’m actually very curious about the moisturizers and eye creams of Alpha-H.

Tip: When you use one of these products (or any other product with glycolic acid), don’t forget to use SPF because your skin is much more sensitive to the sun now.
