But the wonderful, gorgeous, beautiful Kat (Dolly Rouge) told me that she would send me a sample of her tube. I didn't expect her to actually send me the tube, but she did and there was almost two weeks worth of product in it. (thanks Kitty Kat, you Rock!)
As you may know, Hyaluronic acid (which is the main ingredient of Hydraluron) is an incredible hydration ingredient that can hold up to 1,000 times it's weight in water. It essentially attracts moisture to itself. If it is used on the skin it will attract moisture into the skin. The other active ingredient is a bio-engineered strain of marine red algae which causes controlled and mild stimulation of skin turnover to allow thorough penetration of Hydraluron's hyaluronic acid.
Hydraluron is meant to be used after cleansing and toning but before serums and creams. It isn't a moisturiser, but it is meant to help the penetration of your moisturiser, and Indeed Labs say that using Hydraluron increases the skin's ability to retain moisture over time and reduces the amount of topical moisturisers needed to maintain ideal skin hydration.
It is a clear gel, with no smell that spreads easily. A little goes a long long way and you would only need a small pea-sized blob to do your whole face and neck. You need to work fairly quickly as this absorbs (or evaporates I'm not entirely sure which) quite quickly and it honestly feels like you are spreading a layer of water on your skin.
Something that I have heard is that some skins don't get the full benefit of topically applied Hyaluronic Acid and that it may be better for those people to absorb it internally via capsules or the popular Collagen Shots supplements. The capsules are something that I would consider as Collagen Shots are rather expensive although they have proved to be quite effective.
All in all though, I am glad that I am glad that I didn't have to shell out 30+ squids for something that didn't impress me.
Muchos Gracias/ Big Ups / Thanks Very Much to Kat for send me a bit to try!
