Hyaluronic acid is one if the hot ingredients in skincare at the moment. A molecule that helps draw moisture to the skin, it can hold over 1,000 times it's weight in water and it great for plumping and hydrating.
When indeed labs launched Hydraluron, a hyaluronic acid serum, it flew off the shelves in Boots and has since become a firm favourite in many skincare regimes.
This summer, they've expanded their line to include the new Hydraluron Moisture Jelly* - a lightweight jelly texture moisturiser packed full of hyaluronic acid, and PatcH2O - a micro network complex that helps to lock in moisture to skin.
The jelly like texture of the moisturiser means that it sinks into skin really quickly and leaves virtually no trace behind. Skin is left hydrated but without that slightly tacky feeling some moisturisers give.
I think it's perfect for oilier skin types or for use in the summer when you don't need a heavy duty moisturiser. If you have really dry skin then this may not be for you - you'd probably need to add something extra over the top. You can use this as well as your Hydraluron serum - they're designed to work well together and combined will give an extra hydration boost to skin.
The packaging uses a clever pump system to deliver exactly the right amount of product for each use. I think this is a great idea as I often end up using too much with pump or free pour bottles. My only grumble would be the fact that the packaging is a lot bigger than the amount of product.you get. It's a bit deceiving as while you're getting 30 ml (which is standard for a lot of skincare) the bottle is pretty big so you may think you have more than you really do!
That aside, this will be keeping me company throughout the summer - it's great kept in the fridge and applied cold during the current heatwave!
You can find Hydraluron Moisture Jelly in Boots and it's currently on offer for £16.66 (usual price £24.99).
