The Hydraluron Family

Hydraluron has claimed a place in my heart/beauty bag ever since I first tried. As someone with dehydrated skin, it’s a total winner. Since then, the Hydraluron family has grown from one to three – with the addition of a moisture boosting mask, and a moisture jelly added to the original hydraluron serum.

Now, as I said I really do love Hydraluron and there would have to be something pretty impressive to make me want to stop using it and replace with something else – so I’m very happy to see this range expand. But the one thing I can’t quite get my head around around is how is the moisture jelly actually all that different to the original? Sure, you can apply all over the face…but I did that anyway with the original? The textures are very similar – it would take a geekier beauty blogger than me to really say they’re all that different. This isn’t necessarily a criticism at all – I really like the Moisture Jelly packaging and would probably opt for this over the original serum day to day since I can’t tell the difference between the two. Though the tube is still best for travel.

The masks – FYI – are fabulous. They’re sheet masks and they really pack a punch. Post Summer skin or maybe even morning-after skin? Will love this. I’m planning to pack these for night before (or morning of) the wedding.

All Hydraluron * family members are available from Boots (currently reduced prices)

    For me it’s the packaging. The jelly one is so easy to dispense and quick. But great product, wouldn’t be without it now.

    Interesting question – I looked up their ingredient lists a while ago when Boots had a deal on (1/3 off plus £5 off voucher in their magazine – so the tube was only £11.66 instead of £24.99 – bargain!) and they do contain different ingredients.

    The tube: Water/Aqua/Eau, Propanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ahnfeltia Concinna Extract, Carbomer, Butylene Glycol, Disodium Edta, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol

    The jelly: WATER (AQUA / EAU), GLYCERIN, PENTYLENE GLYCOL, GLYCERETH-26, CARBOMER, GLYCERYL POLYACRYLATE, TREHALOSE, UREA, STRELITZIA NICOLAI SEED ARIL EXTRACT, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, DISODIUM EDTA, SERINE, BIOSACCHARIDE GUM-1, ALGIN, DISODIUM PHOSPHATE, PULLULAN, SODIUM HYALURONATE, POTASSIUM PHOSPHATE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, PHENOXYETHANOL

    Based on this I repurchased the tube but didn’t bother with the jelly as there is a much higher percentage of Sodium Hyaluronate in the tube and not as many ‘fillers’. 🙂

      You’re a much better beauty junkie than me! Very helpful – you’re very right they are different – but do feel fairly similar in consistency. But I think the original serum is my favourite!x

        Haha… You give me far too much credit!
        I agree with Nicole (posted below) that one is a serum and one is a moisturiser so they do have different purposes…

    I’m not sure because I haven’t tried anything from that range (I know, I’m a bad beauty addict), but I thought the jelly was an actual moisturiser, while the original is a serum to be applied underneath moisturiser?

    I have recently seen the brand in Boots, never head of them before hand :O
    I will have to try out their products soon 🙂

    I need to try this set, Hydraluron is raved about all the time and I’m missing out! The moisture booster is probably at the very top of my lust list and I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for sharing x
