I am very lucky to be a friend of dermalogica, a brand I’ve been a fan of for a while. Everything I try agrees with my skin, and their new hydrablur primer is no different.
Launching on the 1st February, this product is a primer with blurring and extra moisturising properties.
It is off-white in colour and has a thick-ish consistency, as most blur products. It comes in a tube and I love it has a “squeezer” so you get every single drop out!
It does spread ok, there is a bit of drag and a little does not go such a long way, but upon application, you can clearly see the blurring properties: skin is smooth, even and slightly mattified.
Makeup applies well on top and the finish is refined. It also sat well, with minima flaking throughout the work day.
It smooths pores, fine lines and small texture imperfections, prevents shine and keeps thirsty skin happy. Mine for once, feels super dry by the pm, and I felt this (with the moisture boost) really help.
Among the ingredients are H20Release complex of sodium hyaluronate, algin and trehalose (optimises hydration levels), abyssinian seed oil (smooth and tone), mattifiers, mushroom extract (pore size reduction), wu-zhu-yu fruit extract (radiance) and micro-encapsulated tint (for a neutral coverage).
Overall, this product delivers in its three promises and I am quite impressed.
It is really good to see skincare crossing over into makeup without losing its core proposition. I love to see a product working hard and tackling multiple concerns well.
The dermalogica HydraBlur is available from dermalogica shops, concessions and online, as well as from a variety of retailers, such as Liberty, from 1st February 2016.
