“ Brand: Forever Alpha / Texture: Cream / Type: Moisturiser / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
I was very lucky to be given this product for free along with some other stuff by a friend who use to sell the Forever Living products. Considering it costs around £25.84 per 30 ml for what I consider as an expensive moisturiser I would not of have purchased it since there are some fantastic moisturisers for a lower price out there.
Forever Alpha-E Factor is actually a skin replenisher, the whole objective of this product is to enhance the skin for a younger looking appearance.
- Have a superb combination of powerful antioxidants
- Enhances elasticity
- Normalizes and balances dry skin
- Suitable for sensitive skin
- Ideal for almost every other situation that requires topical application of natural antioxidants
Appearance: This product reminds me of those bottles of chemicals you get in a science lab as its top contains a pipette or a dropper. Since this product is 30ml you use it sparingly with a couple of drops to face or neck and gently blend into the skin using fingertips. Also my friend told me that I could mix a few drops with my normal moisturiser. It does look like urine in the bottle but out of it, I'm reminds of clear baby oil with its oily texture and maybe a slight citrus smell to it.
Since Forever living products are Aloe Vera based, its foundation is pure stabilised Aloe Vera gel. It contains carefully selected ingredients combined to make this a versatile skin product. These ingredients include:
Vitamin E (Tocopherol, Tocopheryl Acetate) - softens and moisturises skin
Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate) - enhances elasticity while moisturising and reducing scaliness.
Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate) enhances elasticity and helps inhibit formation of scar tissue.
Lecithin -emollient to improve the suppleness of the skin.
Borage Seed Oil - helps restore moisture in skin.
Bisabolol - a natural, soothing ingredient with a light citrus aroma, making it suitable for sensitive skin.
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride - emollient that moisturises the skin without the heavy, greasy feel of other oils.
Soy Bean Oil - moisturiser with antioxidant properties.
The trick with this is not to use too much of the product as you end up with a greasy skin. I'm not keen on the idea of adding it to a moisturiser, it just makes it heavy and bit greasy on the skin. If applied carefully then it works, it smoothes skin and makes it look good without the skin feeling greasy and clogged up. I have a dry neck and it worked well for it. It is good and it does what it says, but I'm still not sure if I would have this down as an essential beauty item. As I said earlier there are good stuff out there that does the job brilliantly at much lower prices.
Overall a nice product but expensive.
