Alpyn Beauty is a clean, sustainable skincare line of seven high-performing products sold at Sephora and their site. The feminine, understated and luxurious brand is formulated with a proprietary complex of wildcrafted and hand-cultivated alpine botanicals grown in the mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. If there’s one product you have to try from the Alpyn Beauty line, it’s the Wild Huckleberry 8 Acid Polishing Peel. Read on for my Alpyn Beauty review!
The Alpyn Beauty 8-Acid Polishing Peel is a smooth and creamy product that smoothes texture and brightens the complexion using a double exfoliation method. This peel combines both a blend of acids and physical exfoliation from bamboo powder to provide the best of both exfoliating worlds.
Alpyn Beauty’s 8-Acid Polishing Peel is actually effective and neither overly gentle nor irritating. It contains eight naturally-derived acids:
- Salicylic acid
- Citric acid
- Malic Acid
- Tartaric Acid
- Glycolic Acid
- Azelaic Acid
- Ferulic Acid
- Lactic Acids
The Alpyn Beauty Peel helps refine the look of skin by dissolving dead surface cells. I apply for five minutes until it almost or completely dries and rinse off with warm water. I feel a pleasant tingling of the skin that lets me know it’s working, and my skin feels and looks instantly smoother and polished. This product impressed me the most out of all the Alpyn Beauty products I’ve tried and I highly recommend it.
The Alpyn Beauty PlantGenius Melt Moisturizer is a medium consistency cream, so neither lightweight nor dense. It has more of a whipped texture and sinks into my skin very well. While I enjoyed this moisturizer, I wasn’t head over heels as I prefer a silky consistency, and this is purely a personal preference. I also prefer a pump packaging so less bacteria gets into the product.
The Alpyn Beauty PlantGenius Melt Moisturizer does have an impressive list of ingredients that works on a variety of skin issues simultaneously to hydrate, brighten, nourish and provide anti-aging benefits:
- Hyaluronic acid
- Squalane and other hydrating oils
- Vitamin C and centella asiatica
- Bakuchiol (a natural alternative to retinol) and Tripeptide-29
- Glycolic acid to exfoliate

The new Alpyn Beauty Wild Nettle & Niacinamide Firming Serum is a pleasantly goopy serum that works to tighten skin. The cloudy serum features a relatively new star ingredient to the skincare world – rambutan.
Rambutan is a Southeast Asian fruit that’s said to visibly firm and plump the skin. It’s high in vitamin C, vitamin Bs including niacin, riboflavin, and thiamine, good fatty acids and amino acids.
Niacinamide helps improve skin texture and tone and can also fade dark spots.
I personally love a goopy and milky serum and the Alpyn Beauty Firming Serum absorbs and hydrates well. I do feel a subtle tightening effect, but don’t expect miracles from one product.
