The Best Of: Hydrating Serums


Here's the deal. I have dry skin and it craves moisture. A while ago I got sucked into the Indeed Labs Hydraluron hype and have not looked back since. Hydraluron is a thick gel like textured serum, containing a pure form of hyaluronic acid which helps lock moisture into the skin. The tube photographed is my second tube which I'm currently working my way through, and my gosh I love it so much. It makes my moisturiser glide onto my skin so easily and really helps inject a moisture boost to my lacklustre skin. 

However, at £24.99 I found I went through my first tube a little too quickly for my liking, so when I spotted the Vitamin E Moisture Serum in The Body Shop for £11 I whipped it up. The Body Shop Serum is much thinner in consistency than Hydarluron so I opt for using it in the morning just because I find it sinks into the skin quicker, and I for one do not have bags of time to be waiting for any skincare to absorb early in the morning! 

I've definitely been getting more into serums recently, let me know your favourites in the comments!

  1. I love Hydraluron, but have finished my first one too and haven't taken the plunge to buy it again! Might have to give the Body Shop one a go!

  4. Ooh, great post - the body shop serum sounds great. Aldi weirdly has a great serum as well, and it's under £4!

  5. Hydraluron is incredible! I really enjoy using it. I'll definitely have to check out the Body Shop offering as well though. I've heard great things about the Vitamin E range. xx

  6. So many people say Hydraluron is incredible and brilliant, I had a very small tube as a sample and wasn't too sure about it x

  11. I keep walking past the Hydraluron stand and picking it up but then putting it down again because it's so expensive, one day I'll end up buying it as there are so many great reviews about it, after reading your review of it I'm even more tempted.

    I have a blog too, if you had the time to read it I would be really grateful

    My skin is way to oily so these products probably wont work for me, but I just love products from the Body Shop. They are great!

  16. I was so excited about Hydraluron when I first bought it but I didn't find it did anything for my skin :\ But it's good to hear that you've really been enjoying it and finding it beneficial :) The Body Shop one sounds like a great cheaper alternative!

  18. I did see the 1/3 off but I think then I was still on the fence but if they ever have a discount again (fingers crossed) I think it would be mine! :)

  22. That's not neccesarily true - hydrating products actually can help with oil product :)

  23. I've heard people say they notice the difference that it makes once they stop using it! But each to their own :)
