As a mum with an energetic toddler as well as a long-term sick baby, I have a lot of my plate, and these rarely have time for long pampering sessions. So when the Alpha-H Beauty Sleep Power Peel landed on my doorstep from Activeskin, I was naturally very excited, maybe my prayers had been answered...

This Beauty Sleep Power Peel from Alpha-H is a overnight anti-ageing repair serum that both resurfaces and rejuvenates the skin while you sleep.

It contains a cocktail of high-powered active ingredients including 14% Glycolic Acid, 0.5% retinol and fruit enzymes, which combined helps reduce sun-induced ageing, scarring, acne and wrinkles, while also stimulating cellular renewal and boosting collagen, for a clearer and brighter complexion, that is also firmer, tighter and plumper and more hydrated.

Due to the high concentration of active ingredients including the retinol and , you have to be cautious using this treatment, and doing a patch test is always advised. Hereafter, it is recommended to use it two evenings a week, with a gap of a couple of days in between. I is used on clean dry skin, making sure to avoid the sensitive eye area. It is used either on its own (no need to apply night cream on top), or it can alternatively be used on top of a serum.

The peel is easy to apply, and it absorbs quickly into the skin. In spite of being used to retinol and glycolic products, for a few seconds I can feel a slight tingling, but that quickly fades, and is just a sign that the glycolic acid and fruit enzymes are giving the skin a chemical peel to rid it of dead skin cells and excess sebum, to make way for the retinol to penetrate deeper into the skin. The retinol then helps stimulate the production of new cells and helps reduce scarring, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne breakouts and wrinkles.

And from the very first use, when I wake in the morning, my skin looks incredible. Soft, smooth, and so energised, healthy and glowing. Absolutely incredible.

After having used the product for a few times a week for a couple of weeks, I am pleased to say that the effects are cumulative and my skin is looking better and better after each use. Little by little I can see that areas with pigmentation is fading, fine lines, and in particular one large frown line between my brows (thanks mum for passing that one on to me!) are softening. But my skin is also feeling less greasy, and consequently I feel that I am getting less breakouts, and those that I have had, have been smaller and have cleared significantly faster than otherwise.

The Beauty Sleep comes in a nifty little jar with a pump top, so you get just the amount of product you need (funnily enough it is the same jar as another of my absolute favourite products, the bhave Fresh Ends Hair treatment, must be a sign that good things come in this cool jar!!)

So overall I am really impressed with this Beauty Sleep Power Peel from Alpha-H as it is delivering exactly what it is promising, a more even-toned, clearer, brighter, firmer and thoroughly hydrated skin - looking just like I've just stepped out of a salon after a long beauty treatment! And all while I sleep!
