Alpha-H Gentle Daily Exfoliant

rrp:  $59.95
**I was provided this product for consideration. This review is my honest opinion.
Alpha-H claims: “A unique exfoliation with pure enzymes and fruit to instantly refresh and reveal a smoother brighter complexion. Non-abrasive gentle enzymes activate upon contact with water to provide unparalleled daily retexturising by allowing new healthy cells to the surface.  Combined with natural pineapple and papaya extracts for soothing and brightening benefits, your skin will appear smooth, soft and invigorated.”
I was delighted to receive this product to review, as I am a bit of an Exfoliant freak and I love trying new brands.  This Exfoliant was different to the products I’m used to, because there were no abrasive bits, which was a real surprise! The product comes in powder form, and the directions are to dispense two measures into the palm of your hand and add water to form a thick paste. This was a trial and error process for me. The packaging took a little getting used to, as one measure seemed to dispense hardly any product, so I found myself madly tipping the bottle up and back trying to get enough product out! I started off making a runny unusable mess, then the mixture was way too thick. Finally I was able to mix in just the right amount of water to achieve the correct consistency.

When massaging the exfoliant into my skin, I noticed it was indeed very gentle, as Alpha-H claim. I didn’t like this at first, because I really love the feeling of the scratchy little bits in most exfoliators giving me a deep down clean. However, I adjusted and moved on.  I’ve been using this daily for a few weeks and my skin does look brighter in appearance, and it feels smoother as well.  I love that it's gentle enough to use daily, and I'm glad I've incorporated this product into my daily cleansing routine. Despite initial problems dispensing the powder, I'm pleased with the design of the packaging, as it's impossible to get water into the bottle. No mess or wastage! YAY! Overall, I’m happy with the results and will continue to use this product until it runs out. I’m hoping to see even more improvements in my skin with continued use.
