/ beauty / review / Indeed Labs hydraluron

I squealed a little when I saw this was included in my British Beauty Blogger box. 

Yes. I know this is one of the most raved about products of the year so I really shouldn't have waited so long before trying it.


Better late than never.

The claims
The ultimate daily facial moisture boosting serum that starts where your moisturiser stops.
Containing a pure form of hyaluronic acid (a hydrating ingredient that holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water) you end up with better hydrated, moisture nourished, plumped up skin.
Reinforces skin's natural short and long term moisturization
'Plumps up' skin tissue to restore elasticity and firmness
Reduces skin roughness and provides a soft, smooth and silky texture to the skin
Boosts the action of your moisturizer by stimulating call turnover resulting in an improved absorption of active ingredients.
And then they delve into the science of it all (... deep layers, low molecular weight etc.)
Basically, over time Hydraluron serum increases the skin's hydration level and minimises the need for frequent moisturising. 

What a list.

The reality
I tried so hard not to like it, truly. I wanted to complain of it making my skin oily, or having no affect whatsoever. Seriously though - this stuff is incredible!

Not only can you completely cover your face with the smallest of amounts - it's so quickly absorbed there is absolutely no hanging about. It's meant to be used both morning and night after your toner for maximum effect. To  begin with, I wasn't entirely blown away. There was no drastic result - I didn't wake up to flawless skin, and although it didn't feel 'dry', my face didn't feel hugely hydrated.

It was when this sample ran out that I suddenly realised just what Hydraluron had been doing for me. My make-up didn't apply as evenly as I had come to expect, and my skin looked a little worse for wear. In fact, I would say the difference was close to unbearable - and I as soon as my student loan comes in I will be purchasing this by the bucket. 

Definite YES from me!!

love sophie
