Hydraluron 

CONTENTS:IMG_1556 30ml

PRICE: £24.99

MY STORY: this was a game changer for me. It was the first serum I ever used. The idea behind it was to hydrate my skin and give it a glow. At the time I was working as a junior doctor in a hospital where I was at the mercy of the harsh drying heating and running around wards and long corridors all day.

I was perpetually dehydrated and needed some help!

I noticed an immediate effect from this serum the first time I used it. It was a revelation that my skin could be so well hydrated and full of moisture. It wasn’t until I was on the maternity wards and women would stop during labour to say how my skin glowed that I truly appreciated its powers (anything that can distract a woman in labour from her pain must be absolutely amazing). I use this before moisturising on cleansed skin once or twice a day depending on which other serums I’m using. I love the light gel texture, it absorbs really nicely into the skin.

I’m not sure how dry skins would get on with it, I’m sure used with a decent moisturiser it would do a good job of holding in hydration.

I can see myself repurchasing this for years and years, my skin is smoother plumper and generally brighter than ever and a lot of it is down to this.

AIM: hydraluron moisture boosting serum contains a pure form of hyaluronic acid, an ingredient that holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Red marine algae helps provide maximum delivery. The result – better hydrated, nourished, plumped up skin.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS:
Hyaluronic acid – can reach deep skin layers to boost the skin’s ability to moisture itself, to minimize the appearance of deep wrinkles and improve skin’s elasticity. 

Red Marine Algae – increases cell turnover, firmness, elasticity and smoothness and brings about fine line reduction. 

DIRECTIONS: smooth a small amount of over cleansed face before applying other creams or lotions. Use morning and evening.

PROS: lovely hydrating effect, sits well under moisturiser and make up. Nice gel texture.

CONS: not cheap – usually always 3 for 2 in boots though.
