Alpha-H Essential Skin Perfecting Moisturiser SPF 15 Review

Alpha-H Essential Skin Perfecting Moisturiser SPF 15 Review

Your daily defence against urban aggressors

Our skin is under constant attack.  Environmental aggressors, pollution, UV radiation and blue-light emitted from computers, phones and tablets are degrading the skin and causing premature signs of ageing.  To prevent damage to the skin we need more than moisturisation.  We need an invisible shield to ward off dangers and prevent future damage.  A multi-tasking product that actually works to future-proof our skin.

Alpha-H has the solution.  Essential Skin Perfecting Moisturiser SPF 15 is a next generation 5-in-1 daily protectant.  It moisturises, primes, shields against blue-light, pollution, and filters UV light in one easy step.

Alpha-H has formulated Essential Skin Perfecting Moisturiser SPF 15 using the latest ingredient technology with peptides and environmental defenders to protect against the sun and help fortify the skin.

New Zealand Pine Bark Extract, Enzogenol, similar to Pycnogenol, but sourced from New Zealand as opposed to France, is a more powerful antioxidant than vitamin C and helps to protect cells from UV damage.  It stimulates new cell growth and extends the life of the dermal matrix.

Cureberry, derived from billberry leaves, stimulates the body’s own antioxidant glutathione.  And has been proven to reduce the production of collagen degrading enzymes and free radicals which are triggered by blue-light exposure.

Pollushield has been clinically proven to trap between 74% and 97% of all pollutants on the skin over a 6 hour period.  This vital ingredient creates a microscopic net over the skin’s surface to limit the absorption of the daily assault of airborne pollution.

As well as shielding from environmental damage, the formulation also includes ingredients to optimise skin health.  Dual peptide technology works to stimulate collagen production and increase skin firmness, while reducing lines and wrinkles.

For hydration, the formula contains Niacinamide, which stabilises the skin’s barrier function by increasing the ceramide level and reducing trans epidermal water loss.  Shea butter helps to nourish the skin and reduce inflammation. Caffeine also moisturises and softens the skin and acts as a vasoconstrictor which makes the complexion appear tighter and firmer.

Alpha-H Essential Skin Perfecting Moisturiser SPF 15 is light and easily absorbed giving radiance to the skin.

Although I have only used the moisturiser for a short period of time, it’s already become a firm favourite and is the ideal product for transitioning through the seasons when a higher protection SPF isn’t required.  Skin feels moisturised all day and it’s the perfect base for makeup.
