First off – does anybody else wonder why magenta seems to be the color of hydration? anyone in marketing who may know?
What they are: hydrating serums with hyaluronic acid both a clear gel and cruelty free (yay!)
How I use them: apply a pea size amount on to slighty damp (not wet) skin after cleansing, or acid tone in the morning. Then use spray, moisturizer and/or oil, SPF as usual. You always want to put a watery product on top so he hyaluronic acid can then absorb this moisture to keep your skin plump and hydrated troughout the day.
They also work great put on before any moisturizing mask (like Origins drink up or Bodyshop’s vitamin e).
They are both quite similar productwise though I feel that the hylamide adds more hydration to my skin as it has a slightly thinner consistency – but they are both great products that work fine and I never had any bad reaction to one of them either. Hydraluron’s tube is more travelfriendly and Hylamide’s bottle does a better job at displaying the product left to use. So it’s really up to you – I loved (and emptied) both.
You can get hydraluron (30ml) for £25 and hylamide (30ml) for £18, I just repurchased the hylamide because Deciem (the mother-company) had an offer going – but boots does a 3 for 2 on skincare at the moment including the hylamide serums and all indeed labs skincare if you want to try both in comparison.
Please comment if you tried these – and if there are more magenta-colored hydrating things out there. You can also follow me on bloglovin
