A couple of months ago, I was on the hunt for a medium coverage foundation with a dewy finish... and I found it. I then promised to writ...

Most of the reviews on this blog are of things I love, but sometimes I need to have a bit of a whinge and tell you about products that I didn't really get on with (here's lookin' at you, Sleep Rollers).
Today's the day for a not-so-glowing review.
I first mentioned Hydraluron Moisture Booster back in this post a couple of weeks ago, and bought it after caving in to beauty blogger buzz... which had totally paid off when it came to the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm (more about that here).
Cold winds, central heating and the general gloominess of the winter season can make complexions dehydrated and dull... which is why I decided to search out a little somethin' to boost my thirsty skin.
Hydraluron is created by Indeed Labs, and contains "purest grade" hyaluronic acid; a natural chemical that allows the skin to drink up moisture by absorbing up to one thousand times its own weight in water. It also contains "marine red algae" which, according to the box blurb, increases cell turnover in the upper layers of the skin, so has the potential to fade acne scars.
It's sold exclusively at Boots, and comes out as a clear gel, which you apply after cleansing and toning, but before moisturising to allow for the water content of serums and moisturisers to penetrate deeper into the skin.
I'll start with the good - it's completely free of chemical nasties... err, yep, that's pretty much the only pro of this product.
I wanted to love it, I really did, but after nearly a month of using it day and night, I haven't noticed any difference whatsoever. I went away this weekend, and didn't pack Hydraluron in the hope I'd see an astonishing difference in my skin's texture and tone sans overpriced, overhyped product - I didn't.
I've seen so many positive reviews for this on other beauty blogs, but in my humble opinion, you're better off just slathering on an extra layer of serum or moisturiser than buying this. Completely unremarkable, and a massive waste of £24.99.
Have any of you used this product? What did you think of it?
