Hall of Fame - Hydraluron


Well I'm clearly a fussy cow. I haven't done a Hall of Fame in 9 months.

I've been using this for 3 days. THREE DAYS - and it's in the Hall of Fame. I think that's a bit of a world record. Even for me.

Ethos:
Manufactured by Indeed Labs whose objective is to 'eliminate all marketing hype and costs and deliver real results cost effectively'.

  • World's first hyaluronic acid that is 100% free of animal derived raw materials and organic solvent remnants
  • Paraben free
  • Propylene glycol free
  • Fragrance free
  • Suitable for all skin types

The science:
Hyaluronic acid is found in the body and is responsible for maintaining a 'reservoir of water' in the top layers of the skin. We produce it ourselves but as we age our ability to do so decreases dramatically - one of the reasons we naturally lean towards dryer, baggier skin as we get older (swine). 
Hyaluronic Acid is capable of absorbing up to 1000 times its weight in water. Basically it acts like a magnet to anything you put on top of it - so you apply this, put your moisturiser on - and it stays there - the water in your moisturiser takes longer to evaporate off the surface of the skin. 
It has a whole host of benefits throughout the body - but more importantly for me personally, a lack of hyaluronic acid in the skin leads to a slower healing time and a higher risk of bacteria on the surface of the skin - which for me, means acne. 
Acne that scars and won't heal (swine).

What's in it?
It being sold exclusively at Boots - the ingredients are obviously not listed on their website - something I've complained bitterly about for a long time.

As the print is fairly small I've re-typed below. (As usual, thanks for nothing Boots - you muppets.)

Water, Propanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ahnfeltia Concinna extract, Carbomer, Butylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Sodium hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol

What's good about it?
Everything. 
  • Not dressed up as some fancy ridiculously expensive serum
  • Not full of crap
  • Does what it says on the box
  • Makes no fancy claims such as 'this is all you need' - they actually recommend using underneath your usual products
  • Gives instantaneous feeling of moisture
  • Plumps skin
  • Makes skin super-soft
  • Gives the skin a healthy glow
  • Makes your other products last much longer as you use less of them

What's bad about it?
I want a bigger size and I'd like my picture on the tube with a big thumbs up like a geek.

That's about it.

Really.

Verdict:
Everyone should own this product. Everyone except pre-teens with that perfect baby bouncy skin.
Judging from the comments in my Clinic alone, 95% of you are dehydrated at some point or another.
Get one and keep it for when you need an extra boost. Post-partying, post-travel, post-illness - or in my case every day, twice a day, until you die.
People who:
  • Are on medication and can't use much on their skin
  • Use incorrect products (without knowing)
  • Fly
  • Use any kind of public transport
  • Sit in an office with either air conditioning or heating
  • Are stressed
  • Don't have the perfect diet
  • Have the audacity to enjoy alcohol
Teens/20+
Younger skins that are dehydrated through overuse of harsh foaming products, apricot kernels *god forbid*, partying, boozing, smoking *slaps you*, anything that puts stress on your skin - you need this in your emergency go-to stash. (What do you mean you don't have one? Go get one. Now.)
30+
Skin starting to look a little drab on occasion? Makeup sinking in to your skin? A little Hydraluron under your moisturiser will fix all that.
40+++
Welcome to my world. I have no doubt your skin will be improved from using this product - unless... erm... unless you have a perfect diet, no stress at all in your life and have a facial every week. Not Gwyneth Paltrow? Buy it. (No offence Gwynnie but you get my drift)
I had a teeny tingle on the first use - lasted about 3 seconds and hasn't been back since.

I look forward to taking my makeup off just to get it on my skin.

You only need a little - it goes a long way. Use it where you feel dehydrated/dry/makeup usually fades the quickest - for me that's cheeks, entire nose area, jawline and lower brow line. 

Packaging - 5/5 - plenty of info on the box, nice soft poly tubing and a glorious pink
Texture - 5/5 - not sticky at all - which really surprised me. If it's sticky - you're using too much.
Performance - 5/5 - instant gratification, stays hydrated throughout the day
After effects on the skin - soft, smooth to the touch, visibly plumped (thus hydrated), looks healthier after one use

Hydraluron is £24.99 and is available from Boots. I've seen testers in store so you don't have to take my word for it. Go smear it all over your face. Tell them I sent you. And while you're at it - ask why they don't list ingredients on their website please?



*PR Sample - but I will be repurchasing. Again and again. I have no business affiliations with Hydraluron whatsoever.

  1. I like the sound of it!! So are you saying this is also good for sensitive skin, as I am acne prone and very sensitive so when I see the word 'acid' I freak out a bit as I think it will make my skin red and sore?? Or do you think not? Thanks.

  7. Hada Labo (a Japanese brand) is known by their Hyaluronic Acid products. Since it's easier (and cheaper) to be found in my country, I've been using it for a week and I can't tell if it's working well on me or not. Will you take a look at those Hada Labo products and decide wether it's as good as Hydraluron or not? Thanks xx

    1. Hada Labo? No, sorry :(
      It only leaves me with sticky feeling rather than keep my skin hydrated.
      It didn't work out at all, so I ended up with using it as a body lotion :)).
      Never purchase any Rohto products again.

    3. I've been using Hada Labo and it's really helped my skin plump up and be really moisturized. The formula has changed, so it's absorbed easier and the sticky feeling stays there for only a minute or two. Just try not to use more than three drops. The downside is that it's formulated with parabens. Has no apparent effect on my skin, but those with sensitive skin may want to watch out! Overall, it's still a great product, but I don't know if it's Hydraluron's equal yet since Hydraluron is not available in Singapore so I have yet to try it.

  17. Thanks Caroline, can't wait to try it.

    Question: I'm 39 and don't have many skin complaints other than fine lines and the odd spot. BUT my skin is sooo shiny and always feels really oily. I recently bought some blotting papers and they look pretty grim after just one swipe across my face - but I hesitate to use them on the go as I don't want to wipe my tinted moisturiser off. Would you still recommend Hydraluron for me?

    Thanks! xx

  29. Is this made by the same people who make Nanoblur (the packaging looks almost identical....)?

    If so, I find their company claim of "'eliminate all marketing hype" quite hilarious!

    1. I know what you mean - I think Nanoblur may have been a big one-off to launch the range per se - this has had barely no press.

  30. Thanks for sharing with us Caroline! I have been wondering this for a while now - can you over hydrate your skin? I.e. If you used this more often than you needed would it have some adverse effect or would you just be wasting product? Or does all skin always benefit from extra hydration?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Always benefits in this way. Doesn't benefit from things like Evian water sprays - they dehydrate you. Although if you sprayed them on top of this it would be a slightly different story.

    1. I put my moisturiser straight on top. Apply a smallish amount over cheeks first, then residue everywhere else - then go straight in with next product. Shouldn't be sticky if you do that. Let me know though.

    2. Hi, I did what you suggested but I am not sure if this product is for me. I put moisturiser on over it and waited half an hour. Cheeks still felt slightly tight.
      I then put sunscreen on. It all just started balling up. Might just restrict it to night-time. Do you like the vichy serums? the Liftactive one and they also do an aqualia one for dehydrated skin. Thank you.

    4. Yonka pamplemousse and anthelios spf 30. washed my face again and changed moisturiser to yonka creme 28 and it seems to be better. no spf this time. Yonka creme 28 seems to be calming for my dehydrated cheeks but i tend to use a nuxe cream on my nose only :)

    5. The SPF will possibly be the rolling cause - the hydraluron will help your cheeks - don't use more than a 5p coin size.

    6. Caroline, I ordered this from Walgreens . Am planning to use it under the omorovicza bb cream because I find it is a little drying... Do you think I should still use a moisturizer on top of the serum? Is Kate Somerville goat milk ok? Or origins vita zing? Thank u so much!

  38. hello caroline, as predicted i went out during my lunch break and bought this from boots today. It was the last one (smug face). I just wanted to check though how to use this as i use the P50 (soon to be getting the original P50v from toska) and the Liquid gold. Would i use this after i apply the P50/P50v or do i use this only at night and on the days i dont use LG? I have sensitive skin and prone to hormonal breakouts. thanks again. x x x x x

  39. I had a good look at this a couple of weeks ago, and now you have convinced me. My skin is not healing well after an outbreak of pretty severe cystic acne, so will be trying this!!

    I have been using Sarah Chapman intense hydrating booster, but stopped as I seemed to get an increase of blockages on my neck, not sure if it was the cause or not, daren't try it again just in case.

  43. Hi Caroline, my only issue with hylauronic acid is that the molecules can be too large to penetrate the skin (first heard about this from my fave derm Leslie Baumann). Do you know anything about the molecule size of the h.acid in Hydraluron?

    1. I really respect Dr B too.

      This uses red algae to act as a carrier to help penetrate. A lot of skincare these days use some form of sea algae as its so amiable to the skin.

  54. Hi there, can somebody tell me in what order this comes in a skincare regime with regards to other serums, for example an antioxidant in the morning,with moisturiser& SPF as the antioxidant is thinner in texture does it go on first? & can you use an oil & moisturiser at night or just this & a moisturiser? Many thanks just want to make sure am doing this correct.

    1. Someone?? SOMEONE??? ME you mean!? LOL
      I personally would do anti-oxidant first, then hydraluron then moisturiser. I would use an oil separately - just my preference. If you want to though you can do oil, hydraluron, moisturiser. :)

    3. It's really confusing because some therapists/companies say hydrate the skin first to correct then prevent with your antioxidant then protect with your moisturiser/SPF! But I always go by the texture & always start with the thinner serum. Wonder if it really makes any difference in when the antioxidant serums come in?

      Delete
    4. Antioxidants are protection for the skin - and different companies recommend different application times - but I'm with you - I generally go with the texture.

    Hydraluron
    Decleor oil
    Moisturiser(help on choosing one would be great)

    Or should I just use a moisturiser in the nights I use Hydraluron and no oil?
    Also is it necessary to have a different day an night moisturiser? Sorry to keep asking question after question but your advice is invaluable & I really appreciate it :)

  65. And with that, it was added to the shopping list. Cannot wait to get my hands on a tube - I think your blog is saving my skin's life.

  66. I bought this as soon as i has read your review and it has been ace, my skin seems to already be quenched again after only 2 days!!
    I too have rosacea and have just had an awful outbreak. I use EH cleansing balm and Pai Camelia and Rose cleanser, Botanics rose water toner and Pai Chamomile and Rosehip Mosituriser and my skin seems to be calming, although it is still itchy at times and i have 2 huge comedones on my chin (caused by Origins Mushroom soothing lotion).
    Your blog has taught me so much, so thank you.

  67. As I'm constantly hunting your blog for the newest and best skincare out there I will finally make my holiday trip to London very soon.
    So I would love to read your must-have skincare items, only availible in London for dehydrated/dry skin with anti-ageing properties.
    That would totally help me out!!


    Thank's a lot!

  68. Have used this since it was recommended and have to say that I cannot get it to work...I apply it before my moisturiser but my skin looks a bit shiny (not greasy). My skin seems to look and feel better with just the moisturiser. Oh well, I suppose certain things will not work for everybody. Caroline, what serum would you recommend as a second to this? Many thanks x

  70. I was sad to find out that Hydraluron was sold out on Walgreens.com that I emailed Indeed Labs to find out why they didn't stock it on their website and where I could get my grubby hands on a tube. I received a reply saying they are updating their website and they are not sure if they'll offer their entire range on the site. And currently Hydraluron is only available in Canada and UK, but plan to be in the US very soon. Balls.

  72. found your lovely blog after asking for skincare blog recommendations on twitter. without a doubt, yours is by far the best i have read. i love your honest opinions and your writing style, i've gone so many pages back and you haven't failed to make me either laugh or smile! so thank you for that.

    on a actual post related question: would this work with very sensitive yet combination/oily skin? i'd love to retain a bit of moisture without overloading the skin and this sounds perfect.

    thank you in advance if you reply.

    1. Hi Helen,

      Absolutely it would. But you still need a moisturiser afterwards.

  74. I have used this continuously, twice daily, since you posted. WOW. The sore, stubborn refusing to heal cystic acne I had has been transformed!!! My healing rate has significantly increased and my skin looks so smooth and glowing. I love this product.
    Thankyou. Xx

  75. Where has this product been all my life? I live in South Africa, and had to order it online from Canada. It arrived a few days ago and has already become my favourite treatment. After 3 days my skin is glowing, and I'm feeling great. Thanks for featuring Hydraluron on your site. I would never have known about this skincare miracle otherwise.

  76. I bought this after reading your review and have noticed a massive improvement in my skin.

    Your blog is fantastic and had helped my revamp my skincare routine - only one week and I'm starting to see a big difference.

    So a massive thank you for all the time and hard work you put into this blog - it's amazing.

  77. Hi Caroline, I have purchased this product following your glowing review. In the pm I cleanse with mama mio clean slate then tone with origins purifying tonic, apply the hydraluron, followed by mama mio mighty moisture and then 4 drops of rosehip oil. Am I over moisturising? In the am I use hydraluron followed by my shu uemura bb cream and Dior foundation. Please advise, thank you

    1. Personally I would use the rosehip oil underneath the moisturiser. And I would definitely use a real moisturiser in the morning instead of a BB cream. :)

  78. I am skin obsessed. I've used high SPF since my early 20's and avoid the sun(I am now 41), do facial exercises, use minimal products on my face for cleaning, use cliniques basic moisturiser and drink gallons of water so I am generally pretty in tune to what my skin is up to. Have tried various creams and potion (favourite being Cliniques Turn Around Serum) BUT I have been using this for a month and it is outstanding. My skin is smoother, more even in tone, softer, fuller. I cannot speak highly enough of it. I use it everyday, once a day.

    I have also bought Aldis version to have a go at that but if its not as good as shall go back to this one.

    A seriously good product.

    2. LOL...I have a feeling the weather where I live is playing a role in the results I see. I'm not in the UK..not as much rain which might actually do my skin some good. I don't think the weather in central Canada is as forgiving. :)

      Delete
  84. I emailed Walgreens to ask if it would be available online in the future and this is the response I got:

    "This is in response to your email regarding a product. I apologize for
    any inconvenience.

    Please keep trying back online as it should be back in stock. Thank you
    be well and have a great day."

    That was over a month ago. :o

  86. Hi Caroline, I totally wrote off this brand based on the atrocity that was Nanoblur. I really hated that product with a passion. But you make me want to give them a second chance. Very glad I found your blog, cheers Annie x

  87. If you are living in Canada, I've seen this product in Rexall/PharmaPlus. Oh my gosh Caroline, you should've seen my reaction when I saw the box as I had JUST read your review in the morning. You are the best. Seriously. You're on my top sites page! Love from Canada xx

  88. Mrs Hirons, if I have this do I need any other hydrating serums, masks etc? Just got to allocate my funds reasonably and all that jazz...

  89. I contacted Indeed Labs directly and asked them about the availability of Hydraluron in the States. This is the response I got:

    "Thank you for reaching out to Indeed Labs and for your interest in our
    products. We are happy to announce that we will be airing an infomercial
    in late November at which time our customers may order on line. Please

  90. I just happen to pick this up on holiday in Canada without knowing anything about it, the lovely pink box caught my eye, and I have to agree with the review, it is rather wonderful!! I have oily skin prone to the odd break-out but dehydrated at the same time. Since Ive been using this for about 2 weeks my skin has really improved, no big break-outs and it looks fresh and glowy. I'll definitely be getting this again, review is spot on (no pun intended) :)

  91. Could this be why my make-up disappears?! dehyrdration?! I'm a uni student (drink, stress!) and have a horrific diet (sugar addict) although my skin has got much better since investing in a skincare programme ... could this be the answer! xx

    ReplyDelete
  92. This looks really good! Can't wait to give it a go myself now, especially since the free Peptalash offer in Boots is glitching, making it really cheap to buy Indeed Labs products!

  93. So I currently cleanse, tone and put acne treatment every night, so how would this fit in? Would be grateful if you replied, I am scared of moisturizer hence I only use it when I wear makeup. Thus my skin is dry as paper. Thank you for your help.

  94. Hi Caroline, can I use hydraluron underneath effaclar duo?is it ok?

  95. Do you use moisturizer while hydraluron is still wet on your face?

  96. Could anyone in this comment thread let me know whether using this in conjunction with Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM serum at night is okay? I'm trying to work out when I would use this, whether it would DILUTE the PTR or make it more effective... also, anyone with inflammatory adult acne (with dry skin, not oily, super sensitive, because why would anything ever be straightforward) ever try this in a similar skincare routine? I've literally just - JUST - gotten my skin to calm the hell down through a nightly balm cleanse and PTR (ffs I'm 30!). I could use something like Hydraluron to help speed up the fading of red marks and any future post-spot scabby bits I might have, but I'm not sure (a) if this is the right stuff to do that of (b) whether I should just use it in the morning of for the occasional "treat" night or what. And there's no Google stuff for using retinol serum and hydraluron yet, so.....

    1. I am also hoping to hear a couple suggestions since I can't get hydraluron in the US unless I want to pay twice the price to get it on ebay.

    2. Thank you for the reply. I am not sure if its an allergic reaction because I never had anything like this happen before. I have stopped using it for the past 2/3 days so that my skin calms down and I am thinking of giving it another go. Lets see what happens :fingers crossed: I normally use la roche posay (Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cream) cleanser, Burt's bees (cranberry & pomegranate Sugar Scrub/Citrus Facial Scrub) to exfoliate and BioDerma Hydrabio Legere as moisturizer and dr hauschka revitalizing eye cream. Although I need to change bioderma as its not giving me enough hydration and I get dry patches in my 'T' zone. Any suggestions?

  102. I'm planning my next skincare splurge, and where else to go but here ... my skin, i think, is dehydrated (it drinks my moisturisor up, and my make-up disappears really quickly). I've been taking much better care of skin and its loooking a lot clearer, but after reading your post about dehydrated skin, I think mine might be ... would this be the product I need? is there anything else you might recommend? xxxx

  105. I've heard rave reviews about this product from you and other bloggers, so I went out and bought it and within 3 days started having TERRIBLE breakouts all over my face. A ton of little bumps that come to a whitehead eventually. I've had pretty bad skin before that's been clearing up recently and I have never experienced anything like this! Do you think it could be the hydraluron? I was trying a 2% BHA toner from Paula's Choice at the same time (using this during the day and BHA at night though) so do you think it could boost the exfoliater's power? I would love to know the cause of this because I really want to be able to use the Hydraluron again!

  111. I live in Malaysia and I read your blog few times, thus i picked up some of your favorite stuffs. When this HG product finally available here, i just pick it up immediately because i trust you. My skin is oily and gets irritated easily. I'll see how it goes. *fingers crossing
