A Hydraluron Love Affair

Ahh, Hydraluron.. where do I even start? These are probably the only products in my skincare collection that I would be completely lost without. They claim to contain a pure form of hyaluronic acid which can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Any product that claims it can increase the moisture in my dry skin is well worth trying in my books. Especially if they work.. and boy do these work.

The product I've been using the longest is the original Hydraluron Moisture Booster. I won't pretend that I understand the science behind it, but the basic idea is that it's a lightweight serum that goes on underneath your moisturiser and helps boost the effectiveness of your moisturiser. Unlike most serums that claim to do similar things.. this actually works! Like, really, really works. If I forget to use this before my moisturiser, I actually notice it's missing!

I'm not usually one who buys product backups, but at any one time I usually have 2 or 3 tubes of the Moisture Booster in my cupboard, because I just can't bare the thought of being without it. That is how much I swear by it. It goes on offer for 3 for 2 quite often in Boots, so I always end up stocking up like a crazy person!

The Moisture Jelly is quite a new product for me. As soon as I spotted it in Boots a month or two ago, I just had to try it out. I haven't been using it for too long, but I do really like it so far, especially when used in conjunction with the Moisture Booster. It's a pretty similar texture to the Moisture Booster, but thicker and more jelly like. It dries really quickly on the skin and it's kind of hard to describe but it leaves my skin feeling smooth.. like my dry patches and imperfections have been glossed over with top coat. It's the perfect base for under make up. It says on the box that it's good for use in the AM & PM, but I personally prefer using it in the daytime and something a little bit thicker in the night time.

Another thing that I like about it is the packaging.. not only does it look pretty on my dressing table, but it has one of those spring mechanism pump things, so you know you're going to get every last drop of product out. Genius!

Out of these products, the one I reach for least is the Moisture Boosting Mask, it's £19.99 for a pack of 4 sheet masks, which is really expensive, so I only use these on special occasions or when my skin is in dire need of some extra TLC. I do really love them, but at that price I just can't justify using them regularly. They go on offer for 2 for 3 or 1/3rd off quite regularly, so it can be worth trying them out then if you're on the fence about splurging on them.

All in all, I am completely obsessed with this range of products and I can't ever see myself replacing them. They're just so good. Are any of you as obsessed with them as I am?

  8. I love the original serum, but I'm not as wowed by the moisture jelly. The sheet masks sound great for a treat though, I'll have to give those a go! x
