Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer Review

8th February 2016 in Primer, Skincare - 7 Comments - 3 min read >/div>

Hey Beauties!

I hope this week has gotten off to a great start for you all! I am currently sitting in bed feeling sorry for myself i’m not good at being Ill haha i would be the worst patient ever!

Dermalogica isnt a brand ive tried much from but ive heard stories from people who have used it and how its completely helped turn their skin around. I think the reason i haven’t tried much is because i didn’t really know how to get my hands on it? Dermalogica being a professional ive only ever really seen it in salons before.

Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer Review

When it comes to primers i must say i am a big fan, i know some people dont really what primers are or what they do but maybe by the end of this post you will be more clued up. A primer is something that is usually used after moisturiser and before foundation. Primers can increase the wear of your foundation and best of all correct some skin issues that you might be having like uneven skin, pores, dryness or oiliness, pigmentation etc.

For me Hydrablur Primer is next generation technology as it bridges the gap between skincare and makeup as many primers that are out there only concentrate on the cosmetic benefits of helping make-up application, without considering skin health so in essence better skin = better makeup

Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer

With three benefits in one formula, Hydrablur Primer offers intense moisturisation, natural coverage and pore-refining properties for all skin conditions, especially dry and dehydrated. I have been loving this primer because my skin is combination lately so its really dry but really oily at the same time so i find it hard to find something that helps both parts of my skin. I usually need something that hydrates my skin without making it out but i need something that helps with my large pores as well and Hydrablur Primer ticks all of those boxes.

Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer

Hydrablur contains some fantastic ingredients such as: H2ORelease™ Complex of sodium hyaluronate (water binding Hyarluronic Acid), algin and trehalose which both optimise hydration levels to maintain skin flexibility and smoothness, and helps provide sustained, intense moisturisation lasting throughout the day, Abyssinian Seed Oil which helps to smooth the skin’s texture and tone by creating a non-occlusive film and helps maintain critical moisture balance, without clogging pores, Mattifiers which reduce oily sheen and disguise the appearance of fine, dry lines and imperfections. Creating an even canvas with a soft-focus or blurred effect, Mushroom extract which reduces pore visibility and size, Wu-Zhu-Yu (evodia rutaecarpa) fruit extract enhances skin radiance by boosting microcirculation, and lastly a Micro-encapsulated tint that releases upon application to provide neutral coverage.

Being a big fan of primers i had a lot of hope for this and it didn’t disappoint me when i applied it it felt silky soft and did make my skin feel smooth, getting rid of all the oiliness without making my skin drier which was a total plus for me. I was really impressed with was the Micro-encapsulated tint as it seemed to get rid of some of the redness that i absolutely hate about my skin so having this in Hydrablur is a massive plus!

Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer

If i had to describe this product in one sentence it would be “Instagram filter in a bottle” simply because it does seem to smooth and get rid of a lot of what i hate about my skin but i know that through continued use its just going to get better and better

If you are interested in trying this amazing primer out you can find it on Dermalogica.co.uk for £38* You can also find Dermalogica in Harvey Nichols if you dont want to order online

  • When people ask "what do I use for darkness under the eyes" it's can be a complicated issue because it's not always pigmentation.

When dealing with dark circles under the eyes it can be due to the pigmentation in the skin so you will need to look for tyrosinase inhibitors like kojic acid as well as azelaic acid which can brighten an area over time 
Darkness under the eyes can also comes from things like thin skin and lack of fat pads under the eyes, you can essentially see the darkness under the skin through the skin because the orbital area is hollow 
Shadows can be casted by either having too much or not enough fat pad.

This can corrected by using products that thicken the epidermis, glycolic acid is fantastic for this has it thickens the skin over time, there are more permanent fixes as well uses a the use of fillers.

Fillers are injected into the undereye area to simulate the presence of fat pads taking away the darkness. .

  • *GIFTED I love the formula of this sunscreen but I'm not too keen on how it's marketed as if somehow it's better than others because it's "clean". The whole "clean" skincare movement is something I dont agree with because it's not based on anything scientific and if I'm honest i feel like it uses people's fears against them in the sense that people have such an unfounded fear of toxic, dangerous ingredients in skincare.

I just really don't like when brands claim their products are clean as if other products are dirty and dangerous which just isn't the case.

This is an inorganic filter (physical) SPF 30 which uses 22% Zinc Oxide which is broad spectrum it's not more effective or cleaner than organic (chemical) filters.

Besides the way it's marketed I really like the actual product, the stuff inside. It goes on really well and spreads easily despite being silicone free. It also layers well under makeup without changing the colour of your makeup.

I haven't tried on deeper skin tones but I doubt this sunscreen will be suitable because of the high zinc oxide content which tends to look really ashy on deeper skin tones.

I just want to say as a last thing don't be afraid of organic (chemical) sunscreens, they aren't dangerous they aren't bad for you and just because something is inorganic (physical) it doesn't mean it's somehow cleaner. 
Sunscreens are put through an incredible amount of testing to make sure they are safe, effective and fit for purpose. Don't fall for the fearmongering.

  • Theres an idea floating around that the skin needs to breathe but  this is just a myth.

The skin doesn't breathe and you don't need to let it breathe. Your pores have absolutely nothing to do with breathing and covering them won't suffocate your skin.

The idea that ingredients can suffocate the skin is just very old school thing the one most talked about is silicone which contrary to popular belief is actually really good for the skin.

Silicone gives your skin that really nice slip when applying products not to mention it also protects your skin by forming s barrier again the outside world, but thing can still get through as the shape of silicone is like a big hollow circle with branches so it doesn't suffocate your skin.

If you see people saying you need to let your skin breathe you can now tell them the truth!

  • I see this all the time people talking about shrinking their pores by using hot water and closing them with cold water but this simply isn’t possible 
There are no muscles connected to the pore so there is no way for them to open and close. The size of pores is largely down to genetics and there is not much you can do to change that.

He only muscle that can be found is the arrector pili which causes goose bumps by pulling the hairs up on your skin but it doesn’t have anything to do with your pores and tightening them. 
When you see an enlarged pore it doesn’t mean it’s open it most likely means it’s congested with dead skin cells and hardened sebum however you can fix this by using something like salicylic acid which can penetrate the pore lining and flush everything out making the pore appear smaller.

While there are products out there that can blur and temporarily tighten the skin there is nothing permanent out there that can change the size of pores.
