Alpha-H Age Delay Cleansing Oil // Product Review

I wear a full face of makeup most days, and so feel the need to double cleanse in order to ensure my skin is totally clean when I hop into bed each night. I was sent a sample tub of the Age Delay Cleansing Oil from Alpha-H, which I used each night in the shower (after removing the bulk of my makeup with a designated makeup remover) This cleansing oil is a balm-like consistency that is infused with sea buckthorn and smells of a mix of rosehip along with other floral and fruity scents. 

I massage the balm all over my face before using water to emulsify it, and though they recommend removing this balm with a cloth, I tended to just use water as I followed it up with another cleanser anyway. This stuff melts away makeup and dirt and nourishes my skin, leaving it super soft. If you don't remove the balm with a cloth there will be residue left behind, but it is pleasant and hydrating (perfecting for the aging skin that it is targeted towards!) and so I didn't mind this at all.

The full size product comes in a tube and retails for $49.95 AUD. Once I've burned through some of the other cleansers I have to trial, I will be buying a full size of this. It is not often that skincare grabs my attention as much as this has, and suffice to say I am very impressed.

Have you tried anything from the Alpha-H brand?
What do you recommend I try next?
Do you precleanse often?
*This product sample was provided for review, but my review and opinions are unbiased and honest, as always.


  1. I always cleanse twice too before I go to bed. I get paranoid that there are still gunk on my face lol

  2. I didn't know Alpha H made a cleansing balm - I've been using their liquid gold range for a while now but I'm after a replacement for my Eve Lom so I'll definitely need to check this one out.

  3. I don't know if I could be bothered using a cloth :p But the concept of a cleansing oil sounds intriguing. It seems like this one makes your skin feel really nice after using it. I try to be good when it comes to makeup removal, but most of the time I just double cleanse with my Dove 2-in-1 cleanser & toner. Sometimes I use the Dove foaming makeup remover if I feel I need to take extra measures to take it all off.

  4. I have recently been loving cleansing balms and Alpha H so I think I will have to try this! I love their liquid gold and I have just started using their balancing cleanser.
