Alpha-H Deluxe Sample Box Reviewed

3/29/2014


You all know that my favorite skincare brand is La Roche-Posay so climbing up there with LRP products was, for me, completely unimaginable and impossible for any brand to do. Well - surprise,surprise - the might Alpha-H has done just that with its powerful arsenal of fabulous and extremely effective face care products. Our story started when I purchased my first Alpha-H Liquid Gold. Since I have a full-on review on the blog here, I won't bore you with the details but let me just say that this does act as the most powerful chemical peel I've tried but it never irritated my skin. If there's a product you should start your Alpha-H adventure - this is it! Second product that was amazing was the Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser. It's there up on the pedestal along with my LRP Purifying Foaming Cleanser. They're so different yet my skincare routine got that much rounded when I use them both.

Mislim da vecina vas zna kako je moj omiljeni brend za njegu koze lica La Roche-Posay tako da je veliko postignuce kada bi se jos neki preparativni brend ugurao na cvrstu prvu poziciju zajedno sa LRP-om. Pa - iznenadjenje, iznenadjenje - Alpha-H je ucinio upravo to zahvaljujuci svom arsenalu fantasticnih i izuzetno efektnih proizvoda. Nasa prica je zapocela prvom bocicom Alpha-H Liquid Gold tretmana. Posto mozete procitati cijelu recenziju ovog proizvoda ovdje, necu vas mnogo gnjaviti. Samo cu ponoviti kako je ovo najefektniji hemijski piling koji sam isprobala no nikada mi nije izazvao iritacije. Ukoliko postoji proizvod kojim bi trebale zapoceti vezu sa Alpha-H kao brendom, to bi bio ovaj. Drugi njihov proizvod koji me odusevio jeste Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser. U mojim ocima, on takodjer dijeli prvu poziciju sa LRP Purifying Foaming cistacem. Toliko su razlicite umivalice no savrseno se nadopunjuju, ovisno o potrebama moje koze. Obje su mi u redovitoj rotaciji.


I had the chance to try out an amazing, luxurious Alpha-H sample set (read about how that happened here). It's filled with four Alpha-H goodies, samples that weight 15ml-30ml. That is definitely enough product to test it out properly and that is exactly what I did. The most impressive product from the sample set is the Alpha-H Micro Cleanse with glycolic acid and rice bran. As a devoted chemical peel converter, I found this scrub concept quite interesting. This is, in fact, a manual and chemical peel hybrid. You apply it manually but it has a double - make it a triple effect. You can feel the finely milled microbeads straight away and they, along with rice bran, act as manual exfoliators. They gently buff away coarse skin and all cell build-up, grime, dirt etc. Rice bran also balances pH levels of skin. This exfoliant also contains 12% of glycolic acid (naturally derived from sugar cane) which I find to be quite the punch.You massage this scrub gently over the skin, leave it on for a minute to work its magic and it delivers brighter, tighter and all-round better looking skin. It's so effective that it's even been likened to Microdermabrasion in a bottle!

Imala sam priliku da isprobam fantastican set Alpha-H uzoraka (kako se to desilo mozete procitati ovdje). Set je sadrzavao cetiri Alpha-H uzorka koja su tezila 15ml-30ml. To je, sloziti cete se, izuzetna kolicina po uzorku sto je i sasvim dovoljno da proizvodi budu temeljito testirani. Upravo sam to i ucinila. Najimpresivniji proizvod iz cijelog seta je nesumnjivo Alpha-H Micro Cleanse koji sadrzi glikolnu kiselinu i rizine mekinje. Posto sam odana hemijskim pilinzima i potpuno sam odustala od manuelnih, ovo je bio jedan interesantan koncept. Ovdje se radi o hibridu manuelnog i hemijskog pilinga. Koristi i nanosi se manuelno no ima dvostruko - trostruko djelovanje. Cim istisnete malo pilinga u dlan, osjetiti cete fino usitnjene mikro perlice koje, zajedno sa rizinim mekinjama, djeluju kao manuelni piling. Njezno otklanjaju grubu kozu, nakupine mrtvih celija, prljavstinu, sebum itd. Rizine mekinje takodjer balansiraju pH koze. Ovaj piling sadrzi i 12% glikolne kiseline (prirodno dobivene iz secerne trske) sto smatram da je mocna i efektna koncentracija. Jednostavno umasirate piling na kozu, ostavite do minut da djeluje i doslovno - koza postaje dosta svjetlija, ujednacene teksture i uopsteno mnogo ljepsa. Toliko je efektan piling da su ga neki nazvali mikrodermoabrazijom u bocici! 


I'll also be purchasing the Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturizer SPF30+. It is the most non-oily SPF cream I have ever, ever encountered. It feels so light, so oil-free, so airy and fresh - you wouldn't believe that it even contains SPF. I didn't either until I took a whiff and the light, classic sunscreen scent which gave it away. It's great as a make-up base which scores huge points for me - especially during sweaty, summer days. If your skin is oily or combination - you can use it as a regular face cream but if your skin is dry or dehydrated - you can layer it upon your regular moisturizer (or serum) as it will act as a weightless top coat. It doesn't leave a white trace at all (it's transparent) which I find to be magical as it contains oxybenzone. Alpha-H Age Delay Intensive Anti Wrinkle Night Cream works wonders for my skin - especially if I layer it over Liquid Gold. It's a glowy skin enabler. It truly makes a huge difference for my skin. It contains Retinyl Propionate (Vitamin A 1%), Vitamin E (tocopheryl acetate), an antioxidant cocktail that nourishes and protects (green tea extraxt olive leaf extract, tangerine oil, lavender oil), beta carotene  and our trusty glycolic acid and salicylic acid. This cream features a strong, herbal scent which I really enjoy.

Takodjer cu sebi priustiti veliko pakovanje Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturizer SPF30+. To je najnemasnija krema sa SPF-om koju sam ikada, ikada isprobala. Toliko je lagana, nemasna, prozracna i svjeza - ne bi ni povjerovali u kojoj mjeri i jos k tome da sadrzi solidan SPF. Ne bih ni ja povjerovala da blagi prizvuk klasicnog mirisa krema za suncanje nije odao ovog malisana. Fantasticno se ponasa kao baza za sminku sto je u mojim ocima ogroman plus - posebno ce biti korisna tokom vrelih ljetnih dana. Ukoliko vam je koza masna ili mjesovita, mozete je koristiti kao standardnu kremu za lice no ukoliko je suha ili dehidrirana - mozete je nanijeti preko kreme ili seruma koji vec koristite jer ce se ponasati kao iznimno lagani zastitni sloj. Uopste ne ostavlja bijeli trag (prozirna je na kozi) sto je svojevrsna magija posto sadrzi oksibenzon. Alpha-H Age Delay Intensive ANti Wrinkle Night Cream je ucinila cuda za moju kozu - posebno ako kozu prvo osvjezim Liquid Gold tretmanom pa potom je namazem ovom nocnom kremom. Bez sale, ovo je sjajna i zdrava koza u tubi. Cini veliku razliku za moje lice kada je koristim. Sadrzi Retinyl Propionate (vitamin A 1%), vitamin E (tocopheryl acetate), koktel antioksidansa koji stite i hrane kozu (ekstrakt zelenog caja, ekstrakt lista masline, ulje mandarine, ulje lavande), beta karoten i nase pouzdane; glikolnu i salicilnu kiselinu. Ova nocna krema ima dosta izrazen biljni miris koji mi se, za cudo, jako dopao.


Finally, we have the Alpha-H Liquid Gold Perfecting Daywear with mineral bronzing beads. It can be used as many things but the most important fact you need to know about it is that it's packed with hyaluronic acid. Dubbed "the fountain of youth", it's essential in the production of collagen and is found in our skin. If you apply it topically it can reduce dehydration, wrinkle depth and it firms up the skin. This Liquid Gold Perfecting Daywear is a serum but since it contains mineral bronzing beads - it enhances complexion and acts as an extra make-up step. Also enriched with glycolic acid and licorice it brightens and refines pores. Those microencapsuled  bronzing spheres burst on application and release a blend of mineral pigments and natural light-reflecting particles. I always notice how different, refreshed and awakened my skin feels and looks when I apply it. I sometimes layer it under my foundation, sometimes tap it on my cheekbones to make skin extra glowy and I sometimes use it as a serum alone overnight. It does have a prominent, specific scent to it and I'd advise you to ask for a sample prior to purchasing  to test it out.

Napokon, cetvrti uzorak u setu je Alpha-H Liquid Gold Perfecting Daywear sa mineralnim bronzanim perlicama. Ovaj se proizvod moze koristiti na razlicite nacine no ono sto vas najvise zanima jeste da je bogat hijaluronskom kiselinom. Nazvana je "fontanom mladosti", krucijalna je u proizvodnji kolagena te je nasa koza sadrzi (no vremenom je gubi). Ukoliko hijaluronsku kiselinu nanosimo topicno, moze umanjiti dehidrataciju, ublaziti dubinu bora te ucvrstiti kozu. Ovaj Liquid Gold Perfecting Daywear je u biti serum no posto sadrzi te mineralne perlice koje podare kozi bronzani sjaj - nalazi se na granici preparative i dekorative. Takodjer je obogacen glikolnom kiselinom i sladicem koji osvijetljavaju te refiniraju pore. Mikrosfere sa pocetka price pucaju pri masiranju u kozu i otpustaju mjesavinu mineralnih pigmenata te cestice koje rasprsuju svjetlost. Koza ne postaje kao sa reklame no u stvarnosti, primjetno je osvjezenija, razbudjena i nekako svjeza kada nanesem ovaj serum. Nekada je nanesem ispod tecne podloge, nekada je utapkam na jagodice kako bi ten djelovao posebno osvijetljeno no nekada ga koristim samostalno kao nocni serum. Posjeduje specifican miris za koji vjerujem da ne bi svakome "legao" pa bih iz  tog razloga preporucila da zatrazite probicu prije kupovine.
