I was asked by Newcastle Hair & Beauty Clinic to mix things up a little this month and instead of the usual treatment review, to take a salon product, try it out at home and then report back with my findings; a good, solid, tried and tested review so that you Voyeurs, can make an informed decision before you buy. This is something I’ll be doing more of in the coming months.
This month’s Beauty Product On Trial is the amazing Decleor HydraFloral Anti Pollution Active Lotion. A tricky product to define and a tongue twister to say, it’s a moisturiser with a big difference; when dispensed, it’s a clear fluid, similar to a toner and when applied to the skin it drip feeds the skin essential moisture throughout the day as required to keep skin in tip top condition.
“Enriched with Moringa Olifeira extract providing protection against pollution particles, it reveals a beautiful skin texture. Skin feels plumped, with dehydration lines appearing smoothed. Skin glows and feels fresh.” Decleor
In short, it’s a revelation, a wonder product, a bathroom essential! As we know daily stress and pollution take their toll on our skin and can cause dehydration and other visible skin defects, Decleor Anti Pollution Active Lotion combines the freshness of a cosmetic water with the hydration power of a cream delivering continuous hydration, trust me, I’ve used it and I’m a convert!
I recently came back from vacation with flaky, congested skin from dehydration, changes in temperature, and using sunscreen. I had one Microdermabrasion Facial at Newcastle Hair & Beauty and followed this with Decleor’s latest addition to the HydraFloral range.
Skeptical at first after seeing the consistency of the product, I kept the faith and used it twice per day for three weeks on my face and neck. Decleor advise “Apply 2-3 drops into your hands (no cotton pad needed) and massage into a cleansed face and neck” sounds easy right? In an age where we use space age serums followed by moisturisers with SPF and oils it really is, That. Simple.
On a morning I’d ‘pat’ it in to my skin which felt immediately hydrated and ‘springy’. On an evening I’d apply the water-like lotion and let it soak into my skin and then “seal” it in with my usual facial oil and my skin improved dramatically within just four days. It’s light and doesn’t clog pores, (I wish I’d had it before I went on vacation!) and it really feels like skincare stripped right back to the basics. Fresh, easy and effective; just how skincare should be.
Want to try it out for yourself? Newcastle Hair and Beauty Clinic will have Decleor HydraFloral Anti Pollution Lotion as their Product On Trial in the salon, pop in and give it a go with no obligation but be prepared to be hooked, this one’s a doozie….
