Moisture Boost Life Savers

These two little moisture-boosters have fast taken prime place as favourites for me. Both of these had an immediate ‘love’ effect, but rather than be the fickle blogger I know I can be…I gave it some time first and now I can share that it is indeed love, not just infatuation.
First a look at the Clarins Skin-Smoothing Eye Mask* – this is the first dedicated eye-mask that I have ever tried and it’s absolutely lovely. It’s creamy and rich, yet not too heavy on the delicate eye area. My favourite way to use this is as an overnight intensive treatment for the area. My eye area is the part of my face that is most prone to being dehydrated and the after-effects of using this mask really last.
Hydraluron* first caught my attention purely with it’s promise of ‘the purest hyaluronic acid’, basically my favourite skincare ingredient for the dehydration issue I mentioned above. Then Caroline Hirons sang it’s praises and I knew I had to give it a go – when it comes to skincare advice, Caroline is the woman to go-to. She knows her stuff, and if she said that it’s good – then it’s good.
Of course, Caroline was right – this stuffs plumping and hydrating effect is really second to none. This stuff is seriously amazing. 
As a serum around the eye and cheek area I find my foundation stays looking fresher throughout the day rather than tending to turn dryer as the day progresses. Darn combination skin… dry cheeks, oily T-zone…
But back to the Hydraluron – it packs a punch. My skin feels plumped and generally more healthy and glowy looking. This will be a staple in my skincare routine for a long time to come. I love how simple this is, but it works.
What are your go-to moisture boosters when your skin feels a bit dehydrated? Any other tips for a boost?

    The Hydraluron sounds great. Very tempted to get it! Too bad I’d have to pay for shipping to Hong Kong 🙁

    I like the sound of Hydraluron, I’m always struggling with my combination skin- its such a pain!

    I’ve heard so much about Hydraluron, I really want to try it now but I’d have to pay for shipping as well and it’s so expensive. Do you think you could make a post about dupes for Hydraluron? 🙂

    As the weather gets colder I’ve noticed my skin’s getting drier so something like this would be perfect… I’ll definitely be having a look into it! Sami x

    Even though it is only September I’m already feeling the effects of the drop in temperature here in the UK. My face is getting dry and I have to have my lip balm on me 24/7. I have heard a few things about Hydraluron so now I’m definitely going to give it a go. What type of lip moisturizer do you usually like?
