This pot of face jelly has been doing a pretty fine job of hydrating my face for almost two months.  The next creation from Indeed Labs, the Hydraluron Moisture Jelly* joins its siblings, the Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Facial Serum and  the Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask to completes the skincare family.

So why has this been causing such a buzz? It’s a clear jelly disguised as a moisturiser, designed to hydrate the skin and keeps the moisture locked in for softer, smoother and plumper feeling skin. It is also blissfully refreshing with its cooling temperature and consequently a more favourable alternative to a regular cream moisturiser in the warmer months.

My common complaint is dehydration particularly around the cheeks which Hydraluron’s Moisture Jelly does a super job of tackling. It is packed full of five scientifically proven ingredients (including hyaluronic acid which works to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles). 

It seeps into the skin almost instantly with no greasiness. The jelly actually reminds me of Illamasqua’s Hydra Veil which also hydrates skin though its ingredients are completely different plus it is essentially a primer.

The packaging is worthy of a mention too. From the outside it looks like a simple jar but inside it contains a brilliant and clever dispenser that you push down to extract the right amount of product to cover the face and neck. It’s also hygienic so if you’re OCD about dipping your finger in the same pot, then you will love this. Oh yeah, there are no fears about potential spillages from loose lids either and the pot is surprisingly lightweight.

Hydraluron’s Moisture Jelly is currently on offer at £16.66 in Boots online and in stores nationwide (normally £24.99).

Here’s a mask which doesn’t seem to get much of a mention in beauty blogging – well, not to my knowledge any way. It should because it is damn good.

A few months ago, I was rummaging in my drawers for something and found Eve Lom’s Rescue Mask*. I shrugged and gave it a try. Then I kept returning to it time and time again. There really is something special about this that leaves my skin soft to touch and a face that glows. It’s a deep-cleansing treatment that pulls out all stops in clearing congested skin and brightening complexion.

After cleansing, you apply a medium to thick layer on dry skin. Then leave to set for 15-20 minutes. The aroma of camphor will fill your nose (the stuff that Vicks smells of), invigorating and refreshing tired skin not to mention its anti-septic properties are beneficial too. When the time is up, gently buff off the dry mask with your fingers in small upward circular motions, then wipe off the excess with a damp warm flannel.

I’m slowly working my way through Eve Lom’s skincare range and so far, everything I touch works in my favour. I have dry to normal skin, and the Rescue Mask revives my skin, giving it a much needed boost. I also noticed my make-up applied and looked better (especially on my cheeks which always gets dehydrated). I am banking on the mask drawing out impurities and leaving a purified blank canvas for the artwork.
