Price: £8.49 for a 200ml tub (but often on sale in Debenhams)

This product is a classic body butter with its best feature being the scent. I would also say that this moisturiser is incredibly good value for money and a great dupe for the Laura Mercier crème de pistache soufflé body crème (currently retails at £44.50).

WHY IT WORKS

The key ingredients in this product are avocado oil, honey and aquaxyl. Avocado oil is very rich in vitamin E and can therefore repair the skin and leave it with a healthy sheen. Avocado oil also has a powerful anti-oxidant function which can fight free radicals and reduce signs of ageing on the skin. Honey has natural anti-oxidant and anti-microbial properties which can protect the skin from damage caused by sun rays. It can also retain moisture very well making it a great hydrating agent. The aquaxyl keeps the skin hydrated throughout the day by boosting hyluronic acid in the skin and by optimising water circulation within the cells. Together these three things provide a great combination for well hydrated skin.

This is one of the best body butters I’ve ever used. It has quite a creamy texture but I would not describe it as too heavy. It moisturises the skin without leaving a sticky residue (one of my pet hates) and I find that my skin stays hydrated for most of the day. The scent is so delicious that I look forward to using this product every day and I have been doing so for the last year and have repurchased it multiple times. It is the closest thing I’ve found to the Laura Mercier moisturisers which I can only describe as luxurious treasures in a bottle. Overall I give it a 4/5. 

Hydraluron Review

So I first heard about this product through Caroline Hiron’s blog (skincare guru extraordinaire). This is a hydrating serum which is meant to be applied underneath your daily moisturiser. I have been using this product for a couple of months now and I have to say that it’s amazing! I can see a visible difference in my skin since I’ve started to use it- it almost gives a radiant glow to your face and removes any dryness. The skin soaks up the product very fast so you’re not left with any sticky residue (I’ve found this to be a problem with other similar products). I’ve also found that after continued use, I’ve had to use less moisturiser which is a bonus as it means it lasts longer.

The product contains the purest form of hyaluronic acid- this can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water hence making it a great hydrating agent. The skin produces hyaluronic acid in large amounts in childhood, however with time, UV radiation and other environmental pollutants reduce the ability of the skin to produce it leading to dehydrated skin and thinning of the dermis which can eventually lead to the formation of lines and wrinkles. Hydraluron claims to have anti-ageing effects due to these reasons.

One of the best things about his product is that it is incredibly affordable compared to other products on the market which contain similar ingredients. It retails at £24.99 in boots but you can get it on the online store for £16.99.

In my opinion, this should be in everyone’s daily skincare routine regardless of age- it literally pumps some life into your skin and for that reason I’m going to give it a 5/5.
