Alpha-H Age Delay Cleansing Oil

It was only when uploading this photograph that I actually READ the small print. 'For mature, dehydrated and delicate skin.'

How rude.

OK fine I KNOW I'm mature and dehydrated but rub it in why doncha?!?!

Good job it's a bloody lovely cleanser. This is no oil. It's a balm. This has a richer consistency than Emma Hardie so I tend to keep this for my 2nd cleanse or 1st cleanse if I'm not wearing eye makeup. When the ingredients feel this nice I want it for massage stage - not gloopy-mess-getting-makeup-off-stage.

It contains beeswax, grape seed, sea buckthorn, coconut oil, vitamin E, lavender, rosehip, chamomile, and tangerine peel which means it smells delicious and feels luxurious.

Best for drier skins, older skins and great for facial massage. As per usual I don't emulsify. I apply to dry skin, massage - a lot - then go straight in with the flannel. 

Alpha-H Age Delay Cleansing Oil (balm) is £25.95 for 100ml and available on .

Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Cera Alba, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Bis Stearyl Ethylenediamine/Neo-Pentyl Glycol/Stearyl Hydrogenated Dimer Dilinoleate Copolymer, Silica, Phenoxyethanol, Citrus Reticulata Peel Oil, Vitis Vinifera Seed Oil, Rosa Moschata Oil, Tocopherol, Hippoaerhamnoides Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil, Bisabolol, Linalool, Limonene, Geranoil, Citronellol, Eugenol.


  1. Oh brilliant ANOTHER cleanser I need to try, like I need anymore! Cheers Cazza ;-) x

  2. Every night when I look at my skin, my heart gives a little thank you to you. From Emma hardie to hydraluron and Kate sommerviles goat milk, it's been quite a journey. Thank you so much for doing this. You have made me and millions of others understand their skin better.

  3. I am in need of a new cleanser (EH is running low) would you recommend this for a 17 year old with dry but blemish prone skin?

  4. "Mature" skin. They could have left that off the label. Well at least they put it in fine print so most people do not see it.

  5. I see you're not trying to claim 'delicate' ;)

    This looks lovely.

  6. "mature" sounds a lot better than "immature" ;-)

  7. I love this cleanser too!! It feels so luxurious.
    How good is the smell?!?!
    Glad to see others know about it as well, I thought I was the only one!!
    I recently did a review of it on my (very new - be gentle!!) blog as part of my skincare routine.

  8. This is a great cleanser, even if the label is a little too honest for it's own good!

  9. I currently us Emma Haride for my dehydrated, acne prone skin. Would this be suitable for me?

  10. Does anyone know where to buy this cleanser in USA?
