Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Concentrate is the first Hyaluron product I’ve tried that I really can rave about. I know a few years ago hyaluronic acid was the must have ingredient, products were launched and bloggers waxed lyrical about it’s magical properties. The ageing process depletes hyaluronic acid, and as a result the skin’s connective tissue dips and forms wrinkles and fine lines. Hyaluronic Acid retains moisture and therefore helps fight against this ageing process. I tried several hyaluronic acid products, none made any difference to my skin at all and a couple broke me out incredibly badly, so I dismissed the ingredient as hype, not for me, and forgot about it.
I can’t explain what prompted me to try Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Concentrate but it ended up in my basket and here we are, several months on, and I’m ready to review.
For £31 (£23.25 at Boots currently) you get 6 5ml vials of product.
I have no idea why the product isn’t in one single 30ml bottle, it makes no sense particularly since the vials aren’t single use, but it’s not a complaint, I like the vials, they are cute to use. Apparently one vial contains a weeks worth of product, using it twice a day. I think that’s a conservative estimate, mine has lasted longer than six weeks and I frequently use slightly too much product. I wouldn’t be surprised if this lasted more like six months. To use, you just shake the bottle and apply all over your face, neck and chest if required! As I say, a small amount goes a very long way.
Honestly, this stuff is amazing. First and foremost, no break outs, hooray! On application it is absorbed really quickly leaving your skin so smooth and soft its amazing. I usually finish with moisturiser, but not always, even though I love my moisturiser it just doesn’t leave my skin as smooth as this stuff does so occasionally I skip my moisturiser. Not only is this stuff really hydrating on my dry skin but it makes for an amazing make up base. I do usually follow with moisturiser though, like a good girl!
I believe this has eliminated my dry patches, its added a touch of glow to my skin and everything seems a bit plumper and less patchy and wrinkly in general. Genuinely impressive stuff. Suits my fussy 40–something year old skin very well and finally I’ve been able to see why hyaluronic acid has been so lauded.
