Eileen's Corner: Skincare Update feat Hydraluron & Pixi Glow Reviews

Hello everyone! 


I recently added a few new products to my skincare routine so thought I would do a review on them. 



First up is Hydraluron Moisture Booster Serum from Indeed Labs. My skin is dehydrated especially my cheeks and forehead so I'm always looking for the perfect product to help with this and I think I've found it! I had read about this on Caroline Hirons blog. She raves about it so I decided I would give it a try. This serum disappears almost immediately into my skin - this was something I was not used to as with my usual facial oils and serums I would spend some time massaging them in and could almost always still feel the product on my skin after. You would be tempted to put on more but don't. A small amount will do and spreads easily. It must be followed with a moisturiser. 

I have to say even the first morning after using it skin looked better. I've been using it for three weeks now and my skin is glowing and looks more plumped. I use it twice a day. I am also seriously impressed how my make up looks. No more clinging to the little dry spots on my cheeks. For me this will be a repurchase for sure. I love it! 


Which leads me nicely onto the newest product from Indeed Labs which is Hydraluron Moisture Jelly. This a recent launch so I've just been using it a week after I apply the serum. I really like this too. I think it's especially nice in this warm weather we are having, again it sinks in quickly as it's a gel as opposed to a cream. I love the pump as when you press it once it dispenses the correct amount of product for application. I'm not sure this would be enough for my skin in the winter but for now I'm very happy with it. It compliments the serum very well but you do not have to use this with the serum especially if you are happy with the moisturiser in your routine. 

Both the Hydraluron products are suitable for all skin types and can be purchased from Boots either in-store or online. They are currently on offer at €21.66 for the serum and €19.99 for the moisture jelly. Both are 30ml size. 



The final product is Pixi Glow Tonic - another product that has a huge following. It is an acid toner that is alcohol and oil free. It contains aloe vera & ginseng to soothe and nourish and 5% glycolic acid which gently exfoliates the skin. I love using this - my skin feels great after and not all dry. Since I started both this and the serum I see a great improvement in my skin. This is another product I will continue using and can highly recommend it. It is suitable for normal-dry, sensitive and ageing skin types. It can be used twice a day and comes in very generous size of 250ml. Make sure you use SPF after this toner in the daytime as glycolic acid makes the skin more sensitive to sunlight.  It can be purchased in Ireland from Mise Beauty at misebeauty.com for €19.65.  Have any of you tried these products? Please let me know your thoughts. 

 Until next time!  Eileen xx

  1. I've wanted to try the Hydraluron serum for ages but I don't want to spend that much if my skin reacts badly to it. Also need to try the Pixi Glow Tonic! xx

      Hi Nicola! I can understand how you feel. I am not sure if you can get samples from the bigger Boots stores or not. I got mine from Boots online. My sister is using it too and she find its very good too and didn't have a reaction, she used to have bad acne and its now gone but her skin was very dry. This has helped her a lot. I really like the Pixi Glow! A great size too.

    1. Very true Tracy, I know that my skin gets in awful shape during the winter months and need to change my skincare products by October in preparation for the cold weather! x
