Alpha-H Gentle Daily Exfoliant

When I received my Gentle Daily Exfoliant I was expecting it to be similar to Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant, however it's totally different. This is a clay based exfoliator so when water is added to it the texture is a lovely smooth paste that's very easy to use.

From the first time I used this it was love. I love the texture and the way it feels on my skin, I love how gentle the scrub is and I love the way it makes my skin feel. Using this doesn't feel like using a normal exfoliator does, it is very gentle and even with my sensitive winter skin I can use it every day without irritation. 

After using Gentle Daily Exfoliant for a week I noticed that my pores appeared smaller and my skin looked fresher and more radiant. This has now become a part of my daily skin care routine.   

Alpha-H says: A unique exfoliation with pure enzymes and fruit to instantly refresh and reveal a smoother brighter complexion. Suitable for all skin types. 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.
Contains no artificial fragrances, colour or ingredients.
Gentle enough to use on a daily basis.

On those days when I feel like my skin needs some extra help, I use this as an in shower face mask. I rub it all over my face and then leave it on for a few minutes before washing it off. I find that doing this gets rid of any flaky or rough patches that are hard to shift.   

Would I buy this? Yes, it's a great, effective product.

Ingredients: kaolin, solum diatomeae, bentonite, carica papaya extract, ananas sativus extract, ci 77891. 

This product was sent to me for consideration. 


  1. I've read all the reviews on this exfoliant with great interest! Now the burning question - which do you prefer - this or Dermalogica Daily Exfoliant?

  2. I adore this exfoliant, but haven't tried the Dermalogica before. I'd love to know, like Lucy, which you prefer?

  3. Good question. I prefer the Alpha-H. I find it easier to use cause of the clay texture and it makes my skin feel amazing straight away, whereas the derm one I need to use for about a week before my skin starts to feel good.

  4. Very interesting! I feel I must try it now to compare - though I've been loyal to my Dermalogica for about 3 years now - so this will be an interesting test!

  5. I love Alpha-H and I'm yet to try it out myself. Thank you for sharing your review! I've just started my own blog and I'd love if you could follow!
