Known for achieving cult status due to their hero product, Liquid Gold, skincare brand Alpha-H are always at the forefront of innovation in the beauty industry. Although Liquid Gold is arguably in a class of its own, there are a ton of incredible products also available from the Alpha-H range that often get overlooked.

They’re effective, feel beautiful on the skin, and help to target a wide variety of skin concerns from acne and oiliness through to dryness and ageing signs.

Alpha-H Buying Guide: Beyond Liquid Gold

So, besides everyone’s cult fave, what are the other hits in the Alpha-H range? Here are our top-selling products — let us break it down for you, so you know whether they’ll work for you, why you should buy them and how they’ll help improve your skin!


Alpha-H Clear Skin Daily Face and Body Wash cleanser

Start your skincare routine off on the right foot with a cleanser tailored to your skincare needs. Alpha-H has every single one of you in mind with their range of cleansers — there’s a product to suit a variety of different skin types, from oily to dry to everything in between!

Those with acne, breakouts or enlarged pores will enjoy the Alpha-H Clear Skin Daily Face and Body Wash. Formulated with a few of acne’s worst enemies, including tea tree oil and salicylic acid, it’ll help clear up nasty cysts and pustules as well as your everyday, run of the mill pimples and breakouts.

Oily to combo skins should opt for the Triple Action Cleanser. A non-detergent formula, this product is enriched with cucumber, thyme and aloe vera to help sooth and calm whilst controlling oil production.

Finally, the Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser is a great product if your skin is feeling a little out of whack, whether that means dry patches, flakiness or sensitivities. It’s perfect for any skin type — ingredients such as Vitamin E and aloe vera help to regulate skin back to normal, as well as providing a calming effect.


Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub exfoliator

Scrub-a-dub-dub — the next step in your routine should be exfoliating! Whether you do this once a week to buff away stubborn dead skin cells, or frequently to help relieve congestion, this is a step that’s quite necessary to encourage skin cell turnover.

For those with acne or breakouts that need physical exfoliation, the Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub is the way to go. This 2 in 1 product is enriched with Glycolic Acid to reveal brighter, clearer skin, and peppermint to freshen and clean. Watch as redness fades away and any imperfections are greatly reduced, for a happier, healthier complexion!

Don’t have the time to get a facial at a salon or from a skincare specialist? Let the Alpha-H Instant Facial do the work for you from home. Ideal for a number of skin types, this chemical exfoliant includes ingredients such as witch hazel and arnica to help resurface the skin gently. Who doesn’t love waking up to clearer, purer skin?

Finally, if you have dry, dehydrated or mature skin, it’s time to focus on exfoliating away dead skin cells to reveal a more youthful look. The Alpha-H Gentle Daily Exfoliant is made up of micro granules that are never abrasive or irritating, even on sensitive skins.


Alpha-H Vitamin Serum collection

Ahh, serums — these little ‘miracles in bottles’ are a fairly new skincare staple, yet even over a few short years, we’ve come to realise just how powerful they can be! With different formulations suited to all your skincare needs, it’s essentially a concentrated way to give your complexion a boost with a few good vitamins and antioxidants. Alpha-H have introduced a whole range of Vitamin Serums that target each skincare concern with a concentrated blend of beneficial ingredients.

First up is the Vitamin C Serum with Grape Seed Extract, which also features Hyaluronic Acid as a key ingredient. Ideal for ageing skins in need of a little hydration boost, this will be a staple in your bathroom cabinet if you want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen production.

Another customer favourite is the Vitamin A + E Serum. If you’ve got sun-damaged, thickened, hyperpigmented or acne-scarred skin, this may be the answer to your prayers, as the ingredients when used together in a concentrated serum such as this have a highly transformative effect. Plus, it’s incredibly hydrating and non-drying on skin.

All skin types can make use of the Alpha-H Vitamin B Serum with Copper Tripeptide. With cell-protective and regenerative properties, this serum will also help boost collagen production and work hard to fight off physical ageing signs and environmental damage.


Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser and Gentle Exfoliant

Does your skin react unpredictably to skincare? A moisturiser is definitely a product you need in your arsenal if you’re prone to sensitivities, but if certain ingredients can aggravate your complexion, it’s often quite hard to find something suitable that’s gentle yet effective.

Enter the Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream–this ultra-nourishing moisturiser is perfect for those who suffer from redness, broken capillaries and more. It’ll help sooth without overwhelming your complexion, instead delivering a medium-weight feel with unmatched hydration.

Balance everything out whilst delivering additional exfoliation with the Alpha-H Balancing Moisturiser and Gentle Exfoliant. Oily and combo skins will love this formula as it’s non-greasy and feels light as a feather on the skin. Absolutely packed full of antioxidants like green tea and Vitamin E, this product will brighten, smooth and perfect the skin, clearing away breakouts, pigmentation and more.

We can’t forget our SPF–prevent against premature ageing by wearing something with a good level of SPF under your makeup (or on its own) daily. The Alpha-H Protection Plus Daily SPF 50+ truly has you covered against the sun, environmental factors and free radical damage. Plus, it’s got a beautiful texture and is slightly tinted for those no-makeup days.

Of course, this isn’t every product in the Alpha-H range–make sure to discover the rest of their beloved, high quality products, including masks, specialty solutions and body care! Let us know what your favourite from Alpha-H is over on Facebook or Twitter.
