The more I use from Alpha-H, the more I love the brand. It started with Liquid Gold and continued from there. Whilst Liquid Gold is a liquid exfoliant, they also have a physical/chemical exfoliating product - Micro Cleanse Super Scrub*, which is described as being similar to microdermabrasion, something I've always wanted to try.
This scrub is suitable for all skin types and while it contains microbeads, they are made from biodegradable jojoba wax beads. It also contains 12% Glycolic Acid, so it combines both physical and chemical exfoliants, yet it is surprisingly gentle.
After cleansing, I apply a small amount to my face and neck, then massage in circular motions. While doing this, the jojoba beads burst to balance and moisturise the skin while the glycolic acid renews and exfoliates dead skin cells. You can leave it on for 1/2 minutes if your skin is especially dull or if you haven't looked after it for a while (due to illness, a busy life etc). It also contains caffeine, which tightens and tones the skin. After rinsing, skin is left incredibly soft and smooth and I find that serums, moisturisers, oils etc apply so much better afterwards. Twice weekly use is ample so although it has cleanse in the name, I personally wouldn't think that it's suitable for daily use.
It is the perfect product to use before a night out when you want your makeup to apply flawlessly and evenly as skin honestly couldn't be smoother than after use. I also love that it doesn't leave my skin looking or feeling inflamed.
I think this would particularly suit those with sensitive skin as although it contains 12% glycolic acid, the other ingredients balance the exfoliating action so you don't need to worry about skin feeling stripped or irritated. Those who prefer physical exfoliants will also be happy with this as it isn't gritty with no chance of tearing the skin.
