I love Colorado, but it is so incredibly dry here. Dry hair, dry hands, dry face! I have been battling it for the past two years, and I am over it. Coming from 100% humidity Florida, this has been quite the adjustment. I’ve been switching up my skincare routine for months and months trying to get things in balance, and I think I’ve finally done it.
Dermalogica’s Skin Hydrating Booster is a water-like fluid that hydrates (surprise?) and balances skin’s moisture content. You can use it as a spot treatment to target dry areas, or you can use all over for extra hydration.
Since I have dry skin, I often apply it all over. You can apply it directly to your skin or you can mix in with your moisturizer. The bottle seems teeny tiny, but a little of this goes a long way. I’ve been using it for three weeks, and I expected it to be gone by now, but I have a TON left. You just need a couple drops to cover your face.
If I don’t apply some sort of hydrator or moisturizer after I wash my face, my skin becomes tight, which usually implies dehydration. I prefer to apply Skin Hydrating Booster directly to my skin (face and neck) right after I wash my face in the evening, and then I apply my evening moisturizer just before bed.
Since I started using this three weeks ago, the dry spots around my lips have all but disappeared, and my skin hasn’t felt tight in awhile. I like that my skin drinks it up like a sponge! A lot of times I’ll put a cream on my face and it just sits there, laying over the surface. This hydrator is easily absorbed by my skin and makes an immediate difference in the look and feel of it.
The bottle it’s in is great because it only lets the product come out in small droplets, so you don’t have to worry about wasting any.
Great ingredients can be found in this little bottle: water, glycerin, panthenol, sodium hyaluronate.. to name a few. I like that there’s no artificial fragrance.

If you have dry skin like me, and you haven’t quite found the right hydrating product for you, this could be it! I would look for your closest Dermalogica retailer and see if you can snag some samples. Since I don’t have oily skin and I’m not an esthetician, I don’t want to make any recommendations on that end.
