Earlier this year, I was sent a limited edition Rose version of the Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser and I fell in love with it so quickly, that I immediately bought a backup! The original version was one of the first products produced by the brand, so to celebrate its 25th anniversary in business, they have released a Super Size (500ml) bottle of the Rose version, in collaboration with QVC*. This is strictly limited edition and only available for the month of October, or until stocks last, with a price tag of £32, reduced from £39.
When this was first released, it was pretty innovative, as it had the ability to remove all makeup, yet still balance the skin, ready for the next step, rather than the traditional cleanse and tone method. We are more accustomed to a variety of cleanser types with different abilities these days, but 25 years ago, most people were used to the basic cleanse, tone, moisturise method.
I must admit that I tried the original balancing cleanser, but I personally much prefer this limited edition rose version as my skin just loves rose as an ingredient. The Damask Rose flower oil acts as an anti-inflammatory, which is perfect for sensitive skin, like mine, as it's also soothing. It also contains Vitamin E and Aloe Vera, both of which are calming, but also nourishing.
The cream formula is so easy to use, it's non-foaming, so it can be used on the eye area, and all over the face, to remove makeup, leaving skin clean and calm, but not stripped. It's also an ideal morning cleanse as a quick swipe removes any overnight grime.
I love that the bottle has a pump, for hygiene reasons, but also to protect the ingredients. I also love the classic Alpha-H logo and packaging - non-fussy, as it's the product that does the talking. This 500ml bottle should last months( a shelf life of 2 years unopened and 1 year once opened) and given that we can't travel anywhere, it doesn't matter that it's bulky!
Like I said, this is limited edition and exclusive to QVC, so if you want to get your hands on it, don't hang around as it's bound to go out of stock quickly! Buy here. *not affiliated.
Have you tried this cleanser or anything else from the brand? If not, you really are missing out! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Thanks for reading!
