I’m often asked which products are the most important in my skincare routine, as I know there are many to choose from and I appreciate it can be a little confusing at times to know which are essential for great skin health. This is why I am excited to share with you a wonderful four piece TSV collection from Alpha H which contains everything you need to take good care of your skin and in supersizes that make looking after your skin a cost effective essential solution.
For those of you unfamiliar with Alpha-H, it’s an incredible Australian brand most famous for it’s pioneering developments in exfoliation and skin resurfacing through the use of glycolic acid. Michelle Doherty who is the Director of Alpha H has been the driving force behind the brand for the past twenty years, constantly developing the range to produce new amazing skincare solutions with the same passion as she had over two decades ago.

- Essential Cleansing Balm 50ml (Brand New Launch) – The basis of any good skincare routine is to use a great cleanser which will remove makeup, dirt and grime from the skin whilst maintaining the skin’s natural pH levels. This luxurious rose infused cleansing balm ticks all those boxes and more, with it’s innovative airless pump action pot which allows the potent ingredients to remain fresh and free from bacteria. The texture is light yet satisfying, as it has great slip factor allowing me to give my face a good massage treatment whilst infusing my skin with essential oils of Sea Buckthorn, Rose Hip and Geranium. I prefer to use this on an evening to help detoxify my skin from daily stresses and pollution, by massaging onto dry skin over the entire facial area, avoiding the eyes and removing with the cotton cloth that’s included. My skin just glows after using this cleanser, it really is a treatment that is quick and easy to use yet gives fantastic results every time and is suitable for all skin types and genders to use. I have also applied this as a mask treatment whilst I’ve has a nice relaxing bath to really give my skin a boost and I’ve also found it works brilliantly as a shaving medium, allowing me to achieve a close, smooth shave whilst infusing the skin with hydration.
- Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 50 50ml – I’m a massive advocate for using a good quality broad spectrum SPF on a daily basis, as it protects the skin from harmful UVA & UVB rays which can cause irreparable damage to the skin cells, even on cloudy days. This is such a clever way to not only protect your skin, but to also lock in moisture with hydrating antioxidants such as Vitamin E, Cera Alba and calming Aloe Vera into a super lightweight texture which melts into the skin. This sweat and water resistant formula is perfect for warmer weather or those who engage in sporting activities, plus there is no tell tale skin whitening which can show up in facial hair to worry about. The name says it all, this is an essential daily moisturiser that everyone should try for great skin health.
- Absolute Eye Complex 30ml (Supersize) – The eye area is generally the first place to show signs of ageing, as the skin is so much thinner than the rest of the face, making it prone to moisture loss causing dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles to appear more prominent. I am already a massive fan of this eye treatment, it’s also one of my most recommended products as the I adore the light serum texture which feels instantly cooling and soothing upon application, perfect when I’m suffering with hay fever. Plus it’s packed with so many wonderful active ingredients, such as my favourite moisture magnet Hyaluronic Acid, skin firming peptides and Hibiscus Petals which gently resurface the eye area, giving a refreshed and more youthful appearance. This is one product I always like to have in my routine and to be able to have a double size tube in this collection is incredible.
- Lip Perfector 20ml (Supersize) – A lip balm is an essential for me, as the years go by I’ve noticed a loss of volume and increased dryness, so I make sure I carry a lip treatment with me at all times. This Lip Perfector is such a clever and unique treatment product as it not only hydrates and plumps the lips through the active ingredient of 2% Hilurlip, which is a blend of super-micronised Hylauronic Acid and collagen boosting Tripeptide-1, but there is also a dose of Zinc Oxide to protect the lips from UVA & UVB damage, plus the addition of Peppermint & Wild Mint for a refreshing aroma. Once again this is a supersize only available in this collection, as you’re getting double the size of this fantastic lip treatment which would cost just shy of £40 if you purchased two of the regular 10ml sized versions. Also in a clinical study where volunteers applied 2% Hilurlip twice daily for 30 days saw an average increase in lip volume of 18% and an immediate increase in moisture levels of 32% within one hour of application.
Overall this is a fantastic collection to improve the health of your skin, protect it from harmful UVA & UVB rays plus improving your hydration levels and a radiant appearance. The packaging is perfect for guys to use as it’s simple, clean and modern that no man would be embarrassed about using. I would highly reccomend that you give this collection a try whether you’re a converted Alpha H user or a newbie to the brands, as it offers many months of consistent high quality skincare.
