The best brands...


Alpha-H is known to everyone now as the only Australian Made Glycolic skincare program. 2010 will see many new chapters in the Alpha-H story and we are happy to be apart of it.

At the start of this year Alpha-H welcomed TV presenter and model Nicky Buckley as their first brand ambassador. As one of Australia’s most recognised female faces Nicky is a busy working mother, charity campaigner and television host.

Keep a look out for all the new advertising campaigns coming out featuring Nicky.

On another note, we cant stop hearing the amazing reviews coming through on the Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser. We love it, so will you! Here’s what a loyal Alpha-H product user had to say about it…

“The Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF30+ is the latest edition of the Alpha-H family. I have used my fair share of SPF moisturisers over the years and I find most of them far too heavy, leaving my skin oily and congested, which then in turn causes breakouts. What is different about this one is that is lightweight, water resistant, touch dry and ultra sweat resistant. In the humid climate, here in Australia, I find that my moisturiser and sun protection normally sweats off me within minutes of applying, well not anymore, this one stays put. It comes in a low irritant, non-greasy formula designed so that your pores can breathe.

It is a multi-tasking 3 in 1 product combination of moisturiser, antioxidant and sunscreen. It contains non-nano broad-spectrum protection filters that block both UVA and UVB rays by reflecting them before they reach your skin. The skin preserving antioxidants provide 30 times your skin’s natural protection against sunburn. It is also beneficial in the fight against ageing and may reduce the risk of certain sun cancers. What’s more, it is water resistant for up to four hours.
If you have an oily or combination complexion this would be the ideal daily moisturiser for you. I have been using the Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF30+ for the last couple of weeks, on a daily basis, and I am impressed with its staying power. My face stay’s matte all day, without looking shiny, nor have I experienced any breakouts. It comes in a pump bottle and with just two pumps; it produces a light creamy fluid that is enough to cover my entire face and neck. It absorbs instantly leaving my face prepped and ready to apply foundation. I find I do not need a primer when using this product as it definitely assists in keeping my foundation in place all day.

Overall, I believe I have found my holy grail of SPF moisturisers. Being that is perfect for my skin type and addresses all of my usual concerns with no cons at all. I think the title is very fitting, as it is now a “daily essential” in my skincare regime, and one that will prove to run rings around similar products on the market. This is a five star creation that I am sure everyone will be bending over backwards to try.”
