Exfoliating has become somewhat of a regular routine of mine! Every couple of day’s I always reach for the Alpha-H Micro Cleanse; one of my favourite exfoliants.

Product Details: Alpha H Micro Cleanse


I’ve been a huge fan of the Alpha-H skincare range and the fact this particular exfoliant contains ‘Glycolic Acid’ really appeals to me! Alpha H Micro cleanse is a granulated exfoliant which is formulated with tiny microbeads. Micro cleanse also contains rice bran and 12% Glycolic Acid, this being the perfect remedy for acne/blemish prone skin to remove impurities, exfoliate dead skin cells and repair the skin over time. It also contains refreshing cucumber and mint for a nice cooling sensation on the skin when scrubbing away!


Cucumber and mint banish signs of fatigue and stress for more revitalised skin (Not that I’ve noticed much difference in this area). I’ve been using this exfoliant for just over five months now and I still have half a bottle left!! This stuff really is made to last, and it just makes the high-end price more worth it in the end, for a product that actually works with nice ingredients that last ages… The benefits I’ve noticed from using this really are astonishing and my skin feels so much smoother with a natural glow after using this scrub.


Not only does it leave your skin super soft but it also helps calm down blemishes and helps repair scaring to the skin over a couple of weeks of constant use (I use mine 2-3 day’s a week). The texture of my skin has improved significantly and the redness of blemishes has been reduced. Another thing I really like about this product is easy to use pump function, making it much more hygienic and easier to use in the shower for the right amount of product.


The product itself has a thick creamy consistency and leaves your skin with a slight tingling sensation when left on for a good couple of minutes (I normally leave mine on for 2-3 minutes), this sensation is like the Alpha H Liquid Gold but not as powerful. The tingle sensation comes from the active glycolic acid and it’s great you can feel it working deep into the layers of the skin for a more vigorous treatment. The refreshing mint smell really sells this to me and I do find this exfoliant powerful and extra scrubby, which I prefer when it comes to cleaning oily skin. to really get deep into the pores and remove dirt and dead cells, for a fresh-faced look and feel.


What’re your thoughts on this? Do you like harsher scrubs?

  1. I’m always behind with cult or ‘in’ products but starting to see why they have such a buzz around them and this really is lovely and does the job perfectly! It’s definitely a brand I’d highly recommend as you get your moneys worth! I notice a huge difference after exfoliating because my skins so oily it just strips it away and leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean, I wouldn’t be without it now 😀 xx

  2. It’s always been a brand I’ve heard about on YT and it’s always raved about so wanted to try some things from the range and ever since I’ve been hooked! Fantastic products and they really do work! xx

  3. Oh this sounds amazing! I’d love to try this, as I love cream chemical exfoliants xx

    • This is definitely one to try, I Love it!! This is scrubby and works great for oilier skin types, it might be a little harsh for sensitive or dry skin however! x

    This product sounds really great for your skin, especially since it has glycolic acid in it.

    I’ve been looking for a decent exfoliator for the longest time! This one sounds wonderful, sometimes it’s worth paying a little bit more.

    • I’d highly recommend this if your looking for a ‘decent’ exfoliator! It’s pretty harsh and does the job perfectly! I wouldn’t recommend it for more sensitive or dry skin types however as it could be to harsh on the skin and it smells good too! x

    Love it




  12. Lily says:

    I’ve never of this brand or product, but I have been on the look out for something that would exfoliate my skin like this x


  13. Aisha says:

    I never heard about this.. but I have to try an exfoliate for my skin ♥

    This *definitely* sounds a lot more appealing than the harsher scrubs. I love that it has ingredients like cucumber and mint- it sounds so relaxing. The wash that I’m using right now leaves my face super clean but it dries it out, so I constantly have a dull, faded look to my skin. Once the bottle runs out I think I’m going to give this one a go- it sounds like a game changer!

    • This scrub is harsh but not overly harsh, if that makes sense! Its great for oily skin types but not sensitive or dry as it could be to much. Its super relaxing and cools the skin once applied so it would be great for summer time or warmer weather 🙂 I’d definitely recommend this as it leaves your face bright and soft with the ingredients xx
