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).

I think it’s safe to say it is officially Christmas when the adverts start rolling in thick and fast. So with that in mind, it’s not premature to start shopping for gifts. One where you can’t go wrong is with Murad, the skincare specialists who have created five limited edition skincare gift sets. With Murad this is the proper deal because you know, world-renowned dermatologist Dr. Howard Murad – head honcho – knows his stuff.

Out of the five, I have been using the Hydrating Sensation set, which offers luxurious, deep hydration. One of the things Dr Murad strongly preaches is the importance of drinking water and eating a balanced diet including fresh fruit and vegetables, and believe me I abide by these things.

Over the past 3 or 4 months I have altered my diet cutting out sugary/fizzy drinks and replacing with water and fruit juices. However when skin is dehydrated, it’s because it’s depleted of moisture and usually the cause of this are things we cannot avoid like harsh weather and travelling on the tube where you are void of fresh air and daylight.

This collection contains Hydrating Toner 15ml, Hydro-Dynamic™ Ultimate Moisture 50ml and Hydro-Dynamic™ Ultimate Moisture for eyes 3.5ml – basically this kit will serve its purpose in these 3 simple items.

The moisturiser is my favourite. It works a treat at keeping my skin hydrated, soft and supple and well, it feels so nice to use – immensely luxurious and you can feel it working. The pot is a big size that will last a while even when used twice a day. The eye cream is light to use and instantly gives you a boost and the toner is wonderfully refreshing.

The kits are exceptional value for money starting at £36 and going up to £73.50 but being worth pretty much double those amounts so you’re getting brilliant skincare products for less than you’d normally pay. Hydrating Sensation is worth £123.30 and costs £73.50 in this collective bundle – a saving of nearly £50.

I love how Murad has come up with these clever gift sets – and it’s a good enough excuse to take your skincare seriously. Bag one of these beauties fast!
