Currently Testing – Hydraluron Moisture Booster

If this is the first time you’re seeing this type of blog post (Currently Testing) on my blog, head over here to read what the idea behind this series is.

Boy, did it take a while for me to get my hands on this little tube.  I searched high and low (at various Clicks stores in and around Pretoria) and eventually found it at the Woodlands Clicks.  The reason why I was so determined to find this product, is because Zoella (and quite a few other international beauty bloggers) raves about it.

Here’s what Indeed Labs (the creators) say about Hydraluron:  Over time, this serum increases skin’s hydration level and minimises the need for frequent topical moisturising.  This increase in moisture levels has been shown to increase skin elasticity and reduce surface roughness.

As our skin ages, it loses the ability to produce Hyaluronic Acid naturally resulting in a loss of elasticity that leads to wrinkles.  When applied to the skin in the form of a serum, HA holds water onto the surface of the skin (creating a barrier against moisture loss), while still allowing the skin to breathe.

Hydraluron Moisture Booster

–  It is a serum, this means it should be applied morning and / or night before your moisturiser

–  The main ingredient in this product is Hyaluronic Acid

–  100% free of animal derived raw materials and organic solvent remnants

–  Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water

–  It acts like a magnet to anything that is applied on top of it, thus the water in your moisturiser will take longer to evaporate off the surface of the skin

–  Paraben free (Parabens can cause skin irritation and skin reactions)

–  Propylene Glycol free (PG is a mineral oil that can cause skin sensitivity and breakouts)

–  Fragrance free

–  The tube contains 30ml of product

–  The texture of this is similar to that of a light gel

–  It’s not sticky at all (if it’s sticky, you’re using too much)

–  The serum is absorbed into the skin instantly

–  Skin looks and feels more plump, plus it adds a natural healthy glow to the skin

–  This is suitable for all skin types (it will not increase oil / sebum production)

–   This is not a substitute for your moisturiser

Price: R 400,00 at selected Clicks stores.

    oh sounds like a great product.

    • Luzanne 6 November 2013 / 11:05

      It is a great little serum! Might be a bit pricey for some, but it really does wonders for your skin! :)

  2. Bronwyn 6 November 2013 / 11:08

    I have been wanting that forever! I have existing morning and evening serum but I guess I could use this as an extra step under them, maybe. If I ever find myself with R400 floating around I happen to be in Clicks I just HAVE to get some.

    • Luzanne 6 November 2013 / 16:04

      Yes, if you can save up to get this little tube, do it! You need it in your life!

  3. Chicara 6 November 2013 / 15:15

    This sounds amazing. I guess if the price is anything to go by then it’s probably amazing. Great mini-review. :)

    • Luzanne 6 November 2013 / 16:03

      Thanks for commenting, Chicara! It is a little miracle product! :)

    The price is a bit steep, but if I had the money I would definitely get this to try out.

    Thank you for my Dove hamper, I am loving it Luzanne.

    • Luzanne 6 November 2013 / 21:47

      Yes, I agree. But if you do have the extra cash, get it. You won’t regret it! :)

      It’s a big pleasure, Ronel! I hope you enjoy all your Dove goodies… x

    Sounds like a fantastic serum! I am really enjoying your Currently Testing series, such a fun and unique idea! :)

    xoxo, Lily

      Thank you for your kind words, Lily! I’m so glad you are enjoying this series! :) xxx

    Looking forward to your thoughts down the line on it! Am looking for a powerful moisturizer booster for December as I’ll be in the snow for a month – can already feel the dryness 😉

    • Luzanne 7 November 2013 / 20:33

      Oooooh where are you going on holiday? I LOOOVE snow! I had my first “snow-experience” whilst living in Scotland – brings back such wonderful memories!

      I’ll keep using it and will let you know how it works out for me! Might be in a monthly favourites blog post! 😉 x

      • Bianca 11 November 2013 / 16:32

        Brilliant! Would love to hear how you get on with it. I’m going to Germany for 2 weeks and then spending another 2 weeks in the Austrian Alps skiing 😀 YAY!

        • Luzanne 11 November 2013 / 23:28

          I’ll maybe do a follow-up blog post on it or I’ll just chat with you on Whatsapp about it (if I don’t plan on doing a blog post before you go). :)

          You are SO lucky to be going to Germany and Austria! I’ve never been skiing, I’ll probably suck at it too because I’m quite tall!

    Sounds like a great serum! Good idea to start early to use a product which might help to prevent the loss of elasticity of the skin which eventually leads to wrinkles!

    • Luzanne 7 November 2013 / 20:34

      Prevention is always better than cure. :)

      Thank you for commenting, Tjoppie (aka MOM). xxx

    Hi Luzanne , looks like a nice serum – the hyaluronic acid is a big plus as the packaging says it holds a thousand times it’s own weight in water plus it also stimulates collagen production ( but only if injected). Hyaluronic acid (HA) , unless they are HaFi fragments, is bit big to be absorbed by the skin so their awesome moisturizing effect is temporary and superficial because it isn’t cross- linked (so it doesn’t last long). I’m not sure what you do in terms of getting products to review as I see you buy most yourself but Restylane Skincare range is great. The serum is based on the stabilized (cross-linked) dermal fillers and the night serum has retinol and HA and HA is in the entire range. Also I know most people are scared but injectable Restylane (oh any Hyaluronic acid but I prefer Restylane) bio-revitalization treatments are awesome and have a long lasting effect.

    How would you say this serum compares to something like Eucerin with HA?

    • Luzanne 13 November 2013 / 16:29

      Hi Anjana,

      Thank you so much for this information, very interesting to read! :)

      I do buy most of the things I review on the blog with my own money. Where is Restylane Skincare sold? I’m always open to trying new skincare things (and review them) to provide my readers with different options. I know I enjoy reading about all the different skincare / makeup / beauty products out there.

      I haven’t tried the Eucerin with HA yet, so I can’t really comment on that. :)

      Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post and comment, I really appreciate it. 😉

    • Luzanne 13 November 2013 / 16:30

      Thanks so much for your kind words. :)

    Well you can find Restylane Skincare only at Aesthetic Physicians.I don’t mind sending you a starter pack (complimentary) as I am an aesthetic doctor but not sure how you feel about people sending you stuff to try . I am a beauty and lifestyle blogger as well as an aesthetic doctor and I usually disclose if I get something but I see that there seems to be quite a stir about disclosure in the blogger world and all that. But all your posts are honest and straight forward. If you don’t want that I know I stock it , Dr A Clark , Dr Anushka Reddy and I suppose who ever does Restylane fillers.
    Also I try most of the things,devices and products before I do them on patients so I can see what they do (peels, creams , dermapen, Botox) except the dermal fillers because that is a bit weird to do on yourself – so I reviewed it. I still use the night serum along with a lot of other serums because I just love serums and the Day cream sometimes because it works well as a primer.

    • Luzanne 13 November 2013 / 17:32

      I will always disclose in a blog post when / if something was sent to me for review. There’s a perception out there that bloggers will more often than not give a positive review if a product was sent to them by a company. Some bloggers probably do do that, but because I’ve been a blog follower / reader for years, I know what it feels like when someone says a product is wonderful when it actual fact it isn’t. People spend their hard earned money on products you suggest to them and I don’t think it’s right to lie about the quality.

      I’ll send you an email now and we can chat a bit more. :)

    Any ideas of where in JHB to find Hydraluron? Have been to 3 different Clicks branches and they can’t help me!

  11. Nikki 22 June 2015 / 15:51

    It seems Clicks no longer stocks the Hydraluron. Any suggestions on what product I can use as an alternative?
