Originally I had planned to feature my Hyaluron Cream from Doctor Babor in my upcoming ‘Which products got me through Winter’ post but I actually need to feature this piece of perfection alone, in all it’s glory.
I am not being a drama queen when I say this is the ONE product I would choose if I had to pick a face cream for Winter. It has been a long time since my skin has craved a product so drastically and, usually, a Babor product features in my favourite skincare items. Babor and Doctor Babor just get skincare. The Hydro Cellular line is probably my favourite of all the ranges.
Where to even begin? The Hyaluron Cream is single handedly the most hydrating and nourishing moisturiser I have ever used. And as it should be as it is formulated for dehydrated skin. It is not unusual for someone to confuse dry and dehydrated skin. I myself always thought dehydrated was just a more severe case of dry skin. Now that I know I have dehydrated skin I can properly treat. If I am lazy and leave it dry for too long I can get a really itchy face and my skin literally craves moisture. Call me a lunatic but I can hear my skin screaming for intense hydration.
The Hyaluron Cream is a 24 hour moisturiser that is pretty much the gift that keeps on giving. With or without makeup, your face will stay moisturised throughout the day.
“Hyaluron Cream has a pleasant, light texture and provides multidimensional hydration for the skin. HY-3 peptides promote the skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid, enabling moisture to be stored better in the skin. Triple-action hyaluronic acid reduces transepidermal water loss and thus intensify hydration. In addition, natural biopolymers increase the skin’s moisture content. They release moisture continuously and bind it in the skin, creating a 24-hour moisture reservoir effect.”
I use two pumps for my entire face (generously) and also down my neck. I feel immediate relief on my skin when using this. Especially in Winter I will hop out the shower and need to apply something soothing the minute my face has been dried. It is not that I am using products that are irritating, but once my face is clean and dry, the dehydrated feeling comes back.
The price point is super affordable compared to its fellow high end brands. The 50ml bottle is R880 and the cream can be used morning and night.
Then lastly, I want to just mention the obvious: the blindingly stunning presentation. I appreciate the pump bottle for sanitary reasons. And I freaking adore the packaging for materialistic reasons. It is so stunning and the only downside would be that I sometimes get fingerprints on it and can’t take nice pictures. So not really a downside at all.
