Alpha-H Liquid Laser Super Anti Ageing Balm - review


I bought this product last year and opened it towards the end of winter before putting it aside and eventually returning to it in May this year.

I'd hoped that the break in usage would magically make this product work better for me, but of course it didn't and it hasn't done much for me at all. This is unusual for an Alpha-H product but it does happen, and I must say I'm not upset that this one doesn't wow me because it's expensive and I'm happy to have reasons not to buy it.

Alpha-H claims/product details:

  • An overnight treatment balm with advanced technologies that help you wake to a smoother, firmer and more radiant-looking complexion
  • With a luxurious infusion of 10% vitamin c, niacinamide and juveleven (an extract inspired by the immortal jellyfish), this balm will recharge and boost your skin to the next level
  • A protective evening balm specifically addressing the needs of mature, collagen-poor skins exhibiting signs of stress and fatigue
  • Also addresses the needs of skins experiencing changes associated with biological and hormonal fluctuation
  • Replenishes the skin's hydro-lipid barrier and also targets irregular hyperpigmentation
  • The blend of hydrating macadamia oil, smoothing hibiscus and brightening white mulberry helps to reinvigorate the appearance of the face, neck and d├ęcolletage
  • To use: in the evening apply a small amount to your fingertips and warm slightly by rubbing fingers together; then massage a thin layer over face, neck and d├ęcolletage
  • RRP $129 AUD for 30ml, but do shop around (you can find it for less than $100)

There's what it looks like:


I don't think this is a bad product, it's just that it hasn't done enough for me to warrant the large price-tag so I wouldn't buy it again.

It's a beige-coloured balm with a rich, balm-like scent. It's heavy in texture and greasy in finish, so I suspect it wouldn't suit those with oily skin because it will probably feel too much for you. But if you have dry or mature skin, this might be right up your street.

As mentioned above, I used this last winter for a couple of months and I've now been using it again for two months. I apply it in the evening as the last step in my skincare routine, right before bed.

It spreads and applies well, and while not all of it absorbs (it's too heavy for that), some of it does and it provides a hydrating, protective barrier over my face that's good for the cooler months and that also feels like it seals in my other products.

Given that it's from Alpha-H and that it costs as much as it does, I was expecting it to do something amazing for me. Unfortunately it hasn't, and all it really does is hydrate my face overnight so my skin doesn't feel dry in the morning. With a price-tag like this, it would want to do a lot more than that!

On the claims: no it doesn't give me a smoother, firmer or more radiant complexion; yes it does provide a good amount of moisture and nourishment; no it hasn't done anything for hyperpigmentation or signs of stress/fatigue; and no it doesn't brighten or reinvigorate my skin either.

Overall I don't think this is a bad product, but it hasn't done anything special for me and I've found budget creams that hydrate as well as this does so I wouldn't rush out and buy it for that reason alone. Do note that the reviews I've read so far of this product are as lukewarm as this one is, so that's something to keep in mind.

Not worth the money.
