ALPHA-H MICRO CLEANSE SUPER SCRUB with 12% Glycolic acid and peppermint:
This reviving manual exfoliant is now an integral part of my skincare routine; with its transformative ingredients of Jojoba beads, 12% Glycolic and Caffeine it works wonders on my sometimes lacklustre skin.
Micro Cleanse has recently been tweaked to replace the Polyethylene (plastic) beads to eco-friendly Jojoba beads. Caffeine, with its antioxidant and soothing properties has also be added. As a result the above ingredients work in synergy to slough away dead unwanted dull skin cells, de-clog pores, work on pigmentation, soften the appearance of fine lines and revitalise.
That's some list for one product!
But, in my experience it really does work on these targeted problems, perhaps not overnight but over a period of time. I've noticed a significant reduction in the pigmentation on my neck; this result alone would have prompted me to repurchase. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to state that Micro Cleanse is 1 of 3 products that has transformed my congested skin.
This Super Scrub has a light lotion texture with a refreshing scent that awakens your skin, the skin feels suitably revived and smoothed, leaving you with a perfect canvas for your tinted moisturiser or foundation.
I realise manual exfoliation isn't to every ones tastes, especially for those with very sensitive/high colour skin. They can often can feel scratchy and aggravate any existing sensitivity. I'd definitely steer clear if this is your skin type as it'll be too stimulating. There are many alternative products on the market for those with uber sensitive skin, Avene is a brand that I often recommend. :)
P.S. Sorry about the sad state of the Alpha-H tube but i had to cut it open to salvage the scraps :)
