Lots of people raved on about hyaluronic acid in the blogging world and the benefits it brings to your skin i.e. mainly moisture and plumpness. Those two words yelled to me ‘MIRACLE INGREDIENT’ which I was desperate to try, hence a couple of purchases of skincare months ago to test out……
First up Hydraluron by Indeed Labs:
This product for me is far too expensive for the size of it, I bought this when it was on offer for £16 and was very pleased that I bought it at that price rather than it’s more costly £25, particularly as I am not at all sold on the product itself.
I think it is vastly overpriced for the size of it and also for me the results were not what I expected, and therefore I was vastly underwhelmed and disappointed with this. I found it made my skin feel tight rather than plump and it also dried it out a little. I was expecting miracles with regards to hydration which sadly did not seem to happen! I can’t say as well as to whether this was the culprit for a massive breakout of spots on my chin or not but I am leaning towards this rather than anything else….well this combined with my next purchase…..
Second up is Neroli Firming Super Lift Day Cream by Super Facialist:
Now I love the Superfacialist pre-cleansing oil, it’s an amazing piece of skincare and therefore I thought I’d try another product from their range. This Neroli Firming Cream has hyaluronic acid in it as well so I thought I’d give it a go along side the Hydraluron. This retails at around £15 which I thought was ok, however you obviously can get cheaper day creams out there.
I am on the fence a bit with this cream as it’s quite nice on the skin, but I didn’t feel it sank in well into my skin and was OK for moisture but not amazing, the smell also was a bit potent. I also think as stated above that this along with the Hydraluron broke my skin out very badly and I think it’s all down to the key ingredient of hyaluronic acid!
To sum up I’ve decided that hyaluronic acid is possibly just not great for my skin and I won’t be buying anymore products with it in. Therefore in answer to my question ‘Hyaluronic Acid….Yes or No?’, it’s a NO from me! With skincare everyone is different so I would say to give it a try but I would try and aim for a more less expensive product that Hydraluron to begin with and then if it doesn’t work out for you, you won’t feel as though you’ve wasted a lot of money!
Let me know what your thoughts are if you have tried any of the above products?
