The Massive Alpha-H Skincare Prize! CLOSED

alpha-h giveaway

**UPDATED 13:00 on 19th December 2012: and the winner is….. Sophie Jane (Smith?!) email smith.sophiejane@xxxx. Well done, I am actually quite jealous! And we shall have to have another Alpha-H giveaway, I think, as this one was crazily popular!**

Oh, be still my beating heart. A whole hamper of Alpha-H skincare goodies sat there, waiting to be used. It’s pretty much my beauty dream, that, but it’s not me who’ll be digging in – it’s one of you! Yes, wonderful readers, an early Christmas gift for one extraordinarily lucky person; a consultation with the brand and then a hamper full of skincare worth £250, tailor-made to your needs!

Unless you’re very new to A Model Recommends you’ll have heard me talk a lot about Alpha-H. Concentrated skincare that actually works – I mean properly works – and that’s not concerned with pretty packaging or smelling of flowers or hiring a big movie star to do the ad campaigns. I have to quickly amend that last point, actually, because they have recently prettified their packaging a whole lot! It’s smarter and sleeker but still understated and the customer isn’t being forced to pay through the nose for the image facelift. I’ve said it before: if you’re looking for skincare that works – that really goes the whole way and more, then Alpha-H should be next on your list of things to try.

I’m currently testing out the new Rejuvenating Cream so I’ll let you know how I get on with that; I’ve been trialling it for two weeks and so far it’s pretty brilliant. Proper review to come, though, so look out for that over the Christmas period. It would make an excellent hangover cream, I’m just trying to decide whether or not it’s better than the Liquid Gold Mask! If you want to read previous reviews, then start with my ones on Liquid Gold and the Liquid Gold Night Repair Serum. If you want to browse the products then Cult Beauty are offering free worldwide delivery for A Model Recommends readers on any Alpha-H product – just click here and use the code CULTAH.

OK. Giveaway time. To enter, leave a comment below (ONE PER PERSON OR I’LL TELL SANTA!) and make sure you have done the following:

1) Signed up to the A Model Recommends: Exclusive newsletter. Takes two seconds, then you get to receive a brilliant quarterly newsletter and enter the giveaways on this site. Win-win situation. Sign up by clicking this link!

2) Tell me your favourite Christmas movie. Mine’s Home Alone, yours can be anything you want it to be. Keep it clean.

3) All entries must be in by 12 noon on Wednesday 19th December 2012 and a winner will be picked at random that day. Make sure you’ve left me a way to contact you – if you’re signed in with the Disqus system your email or Facebook name or whatever should already be available to me.

OK, good luck and off you go!


  1. Hello Ruth! Will there be another Alpha-H giveaway maybe?

  2. Hi Ruth! Sorry to be off topic, but in your opinion, where is the best place to purchase Alpha-H in Europe? I am in Germany, and ordered a renew and resurface kit off BeautyBay with absolutely horrible results (It came 23 days after the order, they sent me the Anti-Pigmentation kit instead, they haven’t responded to my e-mails sent over a week ago, and I have to pay for the return shipping myself?!). Are there any Salons to your knowledge that are authorized retailers? I have looked online but a lot of places seem to be sold out….

    I would so appreciate any tips! Thanks!

  60. Ruth, Ruth, Ruth, i have to tell you the truth,
    I turn to you for beauty advice and i really believe your blog has that extra bit of ‘spice’,
    You and Mr Bear are my favourite Internet team, and watching the latest instalments of you both never fails to make me beam,
    When I spotted the Alpha H giveaway, I shouted out ‘this has to be my lucky day’,
    It is at the top of my christmas list and I worry every day that it might get accidentally missed!
    All I can do now is cross my fingers and toes and snuggle up with my favourite Christmas film to try and ease all my woes,
    ‘All I want for Christmas’ is my festive film of choice, I would recommend you try it out and I promise you that you will rejoice!
    There’s even something for Mr Bear to keep him occupied, I can guarantee that Snowball the mouse will keep him satisfied,
    So Happy Christmas to all of my friends, including you A Model Recommends!

  61. Mine is home alone, love it

  62. Hi Ruth I have just got off the phone to a friend after an hour long conversation about alpha h products.

  64. A Christmas Story. “Don’t shoot your eye out.”

  65. Best giveaway ever!!!! National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. x

  66. I’ve been working in Oz the past few years and this brand has been surprisingly difficult to get over there even though it’s Australian! So on a long ‘Christmas break home I decided to treat myself to a trip to Harvey Nic’s Beauty Mart only to find Liquid Gold wasn’t in stock!

    All time favourite Christmas movie- I have to say the classic ‘It’s a wonderful life’- a movie filled with heartfelt and poignant messages.

  514. Dear Ruth,

    My favourite christmas movie is definitely one of the old Czech fairy tale films from 1973: “Drei Haselnüsse für Aschenbrödel” (Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella)

    During christmas time you can see it on many tv channels in Germany, it truly is a traditional christmas movie and really lovely made. Not sure if there has ever been a version in English, but if you can find it or understand German or Czech, it’s SO worth watching it, makes you feel like a little girl again that can’t wait for christmas to come! Just thinking about the film makes me feel festive, haha!
    I’d love to win, as Alpha H is really hard to get here, I only managed to get the Liquid Gold and I love it!

  693. this has got to be the best giveaway ever! I adore Alpha H, haven’t yet found a product that didn’t agree with me and that didn’t perform…. Fingers crossed on a massive level!

  745. It has to be Home Alone for me too. I grew up watching it, and my Mum and I watched it again last year and were still either on the edge of our seats or laughing hysterically the whole time! Plus the unexpectedly lovely old man gets me every time…

  746. elf is my fave and Merry
    christmas x

  747. Favourite film set at Christmas is Gremlins I think. I’m hoping that if I win the tailored alpha h package the effects will restore my skin from ‘Stripe’ to ‘Gizmo’ (time reverse and cuter, rather that covered in fur). Fingers crossed. Sarah

  751. Love Actually is definitely my favourite Christmas movie. But I’m actually a big sucker for Christmas TV specials (especially British ones) There’s a channel here in Australia (called UKTV, but run by the BBC) that just fills December with UK Christmas specials. It’s fab! A Very Merry Christmas Ruth! xx

  752. My favourite Christmas movie is “The Polar Express”.
    Great giveaway, Ruth!

  753. it would probably be “you’ve got mail” oooooor “love actually”, but there’s too much of them I can’t really decide… oh God i know “bridget jones” :p

  754. hands down home alone 1 the orignal first movie :)

  755. It’s a wonderful life! :)

  758. The Grinch!

  759. “Le père Noël est une ordure”! Classic french Christmas movie :)

  761. Got to be Hercule Poirot’s Christmas

  762. Thank you so much for this giveaway, Ruth! Merry Christmas to you, too!

    My favorite Christmas film of all time, hands down, is The Little Drummer Boy. For me, it harkens back to a simpler time, before I was faced with the dark, hard facts of maturity and growing up. It also reminds me that no amount of hate can ever bring one closer to peace. This film is very sobering, not only for someone who is religous and spiritual, but also for humanity as a whole.

    :) My email is

  763. Fav movie: A Christmas Story! XO and Happy Holidays from Colorado

  764. :) My favorite Christmas movie is probably love actually ! Thank you so much for this price !
