A Morning with Alpha-H
Updated: Sep 23, 2019
There aren't many things that would get me out of the house and in the City before 9 but when I'm invited to an Alpha-H Skincare breakfast I make the time to attend. For 25 years Alpha H has been creating skincare that is bridging the gap between intensive treatments and user friendly skincare, very cosmeceutical forward. New to the United States, this skincare powerhouse is huge in the European, Asian and Australian beauty markets. It's about time we've caught up to what the rest of the world already knew, that these products are pretty amazing. I've been interested in Australian skincare brands for years, if you know me I talk about brands from the country all of the time. Cosmetic regulations in Australia are light years ahead of the United States so trying new products from the country are a pleasure not a hindrance in any way.
Front runner products for the brand have to be apart of their Liquid Gold line. This morning, I had the opportunity to spend my time with the brand learning all about them. Two from the line that caught my eye immediately are the Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream and the Liquid Gold with Glycolic Acid.
Speaking with the brands representatives, nothing but good things were said for both of these products. For the eye cream, I am looking forward to the illuminating properties as well as the slight exfoliating properties. Eye creams that exfoliate might be a bit daunting because of how thin the skin is in this area but dead skin build up can create milia and white heads. Lightly exfoliating this area while hydrating the skin sounds like a dream in my book.
I'm not huge on acids for my skin at the moment but I am actually super excited to try the Liquid Gold with Glycolic Acid. Glycolic Acid is basically the ideal acid for removing the top dead skin level of your skin to leave brighter, healthier skin. Liquid Gold is a treatment product to help your skin fight against wrinkles, sun damage and skin pigmentation. All things anyone over the age of 21 want!
We feasted on avocado toast, acai bowls and matcha lattes thanks to Two Hands. The perfect New Yorker breakfast! Alpha-H couldn't have picked a more perfect restaurant for the event, it fit the brands aesthetic to a t. Very light and airy with minimalist features. The highlight of the event for me though had to be the skin consultation. We went through my skins hydration, pores, wrinkles and pigmentation levels all of which were good or above. Learning more about my skin helped pick out the products that would help not hinder my skincare journey. I walked away with an excitement felt for new products that I haven't felt in a long time. Honestly, I can't wait to break into these in the next few weeks and putting them to the test.
