Alpha H is a brand I really enjoyed getting to know a bit more about in 2015, and while 2016 has only just begun I already have a new release from them to share with you!
If you’ve read my blog for a while, you may remember I wrote about an eye cream and serum from Alpha H in August (which I still love using now!) and the Micro Cleanse Super Scrub is the latest to join their lineup of amazing skincare.
The scrub is suitable for all skin types and is packed full of skin enhancing ingredients for brighter, fresher and smoother skin.
Key ingredients of the scrub include 12% Glycolic Acid, Caffeine Extract, Jojoba Beads, Peppermint Oil and Cucumber.
Interestingly, when you open the tube the smell of peppermint is really strong but when you actually use it on your face you can hardly detect it at all!
I like to use an exfoliator 2-3 times a week to help buff away any dead skin cells and brighten my skin, so for the past couple of weeks I’ve been using this scrub and it’s really worked wonders.
I usually apply this straight after I get out of the shower, when my skin is fairly warm, and buff it into my skin using small circular motions.
If I want a really deep clean I’ll leave it on for a couple of minutes while I brush my teeth, then I remove it using a warm, damp muslin cloth.
The only problem I’ve had so far with the scrub is that the particles are so fine I often have to clean mine face a good few times to make sure it’s all removed.
However, as long as I’m thorough when removing it I’m left with soft, clean skin that feels and looks a lot better than before.
The scrub launched in a special TSV on QVC on January 3 and launches tomorrow in M&S Beauty.
