It can seem daunting to try a new skincare routine, especially when you have your tried and true method. But we took the leap and tried Alpha Skin Care products actually work to improve skin. Their products feature natural ingredients (AHAs and Retinol) that help improve the function and appearance of the skin. The alpha hydroxy acids are natural exfoliates made from fruit acids which help gently loosen dead skin cells to encourage healthy, radiant skin. The results are in — see what our etailz team had to say.
Pros: This moisturizer was great! Very light and not at all greasy. It was super gentle on my skin and I swear that it had a cooling effect each time I applied it, which I loved! It has SPF 15 which is awesome since sun protection is something I always look for in a moisturizer.
Cons: I honestly can’t think of anything – this product was lightweight, gentle, and unscented – all pluses in my book!
Overall, I think this product would make a great everyday moisturizer, or could even be used as a light sunscreen for running quick errands. The 1 oz. size makes it perfect for travel as well!
Pros: This cream was really lightweight and not at all greasy, which was refreshing as I’ve used other night time anti-aging products that haven’t left my skin feeling very clean. The formula was also very gentle on my sensitive skin, which is always a plus!
I applied a pea-sized amount of the product each night, directly after applying the Alpha Skincare Enhanced Facial Moisturizer. I don’t have many wrinkles right now (fortunately!) but I did notice that my face seemed smoother and firmer.
Cons: The only thing that I didn’t really like about the product was the scent – it was very “medical” smelling. Not a huge deal, but something I noticed.
This product would be great for anyone who is just starting an anti-aging skincare regimen or those working to combat early signs of aging.
My skin felt SO soft after using this product for a few days. I don’t have very severe lines or wrinkles – but I did notice that this product tightened my subtle lines. This product also helped with small blemishes and discoloration. I liked that this product didn’t have any coloring or added scent. I have fairly sensitive skin and this was gentle enough for me to use twice daily. I will definitely keep using this.
The pump bottle that this product comes in is so nice and easy to use. You certainly can feel that this product is working – there is a noticeable tingling immediately after the product is applied. Unlike many serums, this one dries well without leaving a sticky residue. I love using this first thing in the morning to wake up my face – it brings color to your cheeks, smooths the top layer of discoloration and tightens sleepy skin. The fact that this AHA also has antioxidants and vitamins is such a bonus! I feel like me-in-10-years will thank the now-me for using this product.
I normally don’t use creams on my face because they tend to irritate my skin, but the Essential Renewal Cream was amazing! I used it every night before bed and my skin LOVED it! The product went on very smoothly and didn’t feel too thick which was a big plus. When I woke up on the morning my skin was very moisturized and refreshed – this is definitely a product I would recommend!
I’ve never used a skin lightener before, but I was definitely impressed! I would put it on at night and in the mornings, and I definitely saw improvements by the second day. It did a great job of evening my skin tone, even for those tricky areas. I would definitely recommend this to someone trying to lighten up dark spots!
I absolutely love the alpha face wash! I use it every day in the shower and it leaves my skin feeling so soft, not dry like other face washes. I have temperamental skin and am always wary of trying new products, but this face wash makes my skin even better than before. I’m definitely hooked.
The alpha face lotion was great for dry skin. I have combination skin, and it was a little too much for using all over my face, but I started using in on my neck and drier parts of my face and it made them so soft. I would definitely recommend this for people with dry skin, I had my fiancé try it as well and even he loved how well it worked (don’t tell him I told you though).
Adding a new toner to your daily routine can be intimidating, not with Alpha Hydrox- this toner is great! The biggest plus for me was it didn’t dry my skin out! My skin was left feeling firm and clean. It’s a very lightweight toner so don’t be afraid to use a little extra or use a lighter cotton face swab, it absorbs pretty quickly. I highly recommend this product to anyone, especially those with dry/ sensitive skin as it is a gentle toner.
