[unpaid/sample] Another K-Beauty brand that’s not quite hit the big radars yet is Isntree with their Hyaluronic Acid range.
If you like a light weight hydrator that has a water gel feel this hits the spot nicely! It’s immediately cooling on the skin (great for hot faces, not so great for a chilly snow day!) and instantly softens. It’s USP is five different types of hyaluronic with different molecule weights as well as argan oil to hold moisture for longer – and it works. It feels best as a non-sticky day time, pre-make up moisture burst.
You can boost the aqua gel effects with the Hyaluronic Toner Plus – a kind of thick water in consistency – that again contains five different types of hyaluronic. The blurb quotes that it’s 50% hyaluronic and sure enough, sodium hyaluronte (the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid) is fourth on the ingredient list. The thing is, about both of these, is that they are texturally so light – they’re for you if you don’t like a heavy feel on your skin but do want to keep moisture close or if you have combination or oily skin. If you want more heavy duty try the Hyaluronic Moist Cream which will give a more traditional textural feel. I think they’re well priced at £17 for the Aqua Gel and £18 for the Toner Plus. As a tip, try soaking some thin strips of cotton wool (peel up the layers of a cotton wool pad) in Toner Plus and leaving on your skin for an intense hit of moisture. In the summer, shove it in the fridge first. Find them HERE.
