Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a substance found naturally in our skin that holds water and helps keep it hydrated and plump. The molecule holds a thousand times its weight in water to not only retain all that moisture in our skin but also prevent all that moisture from evaporating into the air. Apart from promoting supple and smooth skin, it has many other medical benefits. It also provides antiaging benefits, faster wound healing and could also be taken orally in specific form and composition. But coming back to the main concept of this post, Hyaluronic Acid in makeup and skincare. I purchased my first By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-powder over 5 years back and it has always been a staple. In this post, I am sharing more about the Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder and Hyaluronic Hydra- Primer along with the Dual-ended face brush. The new
Hyaluronic Hydra- Powder has a little different packaging from the older version I has before.
By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra- Powder is a loose translucent setting powder for the face which is non-drying, mattifies and blurs the imperfections. The powder is infused with skincare benefits of hyaluronic acid, the multi-purpose Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder creates the perfect makeup finish as part of a 24/7 Hyaluronic Routine. Hyaluronic acid helps to maintain optimum moisture level. It is one of the best setting powder I have tried which instantly blurs my problem areas while minimizing pores, even out skin tone, fill in fine lines and control shine. The powder work perfectly great for my combination skin. It feels very lightweight and silky on the skin. This powder keeps my skin matte and problem areas blurred for a great amount of time during the day, my face looks fresh at the end of the day. The powder might leave a slight white cast depending on the way you apply it, I prefer applying it with my fingers and it magically blurs my imperfections.
To use, ‘Shake the jar before use. Dust the loose powder onto the Tool-Expert Dual-Ended Brush or Tool-Expert Kabuki Brush. Tap off any excess powder and apply all over the face on foundation or directly after the primer.
For touch-ups, apply with fingertips on areas that need to be perfected to absorb oil and neutralize shine. For an overnight treatment, use over your night cream to lock in moisture and keep hydration level at an optimum while you sleep.’
By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Primer is a moisturizing primer with built-in skincare. The primer is infused with skincare benefits of hyaluronic acid, Hyaluronic Hydra-Primer creates the perfect makeup base as part of a 24/7 Hyaluronic Routine. Hyaluronic acid helps to boost and maintain optimum moisture level, so skin looks firmer and plumper. I have noticed that this primer blurs blemishes and imperfections, minimize pores, even out skin tone, fill in fine lines and control shine. The primer has a weightless mousse texture which blends into the skin nicely. While many primers for combination or oily skin make my skin uncomfortable or dry but this primer does the job very well, keep my skin hydrated and comfortable and complexion looking matte, fewer imperfections, and radiant.
To apply ‘Apply a thin layer of Hyaluronic Hydra-Primer to the face, around the eyes and lips with Tool-Expert Dual-Ended Brush or with fingertips. Use alone or before makeup to even out the skin tone and hold makeup for longer.
Apply on pores, blemishes and imperfections for an instant blur-effect.
Mix a small amount of primer with your foundation to lighten coverage. Set makeup with the Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder.’
By Terry Dual-ended face brush is a 2 in 1 foundation and powder brush with ultra-soft synthetic bristles suitable for all complexion products. The flat shaped brush on one end is designed to apply liquid, cream and gel textures easily and evenly while the fluffy domed-shape brush on the other end, is ideal to perfect your makeup when using loose or compact powders.
I reviewed the colour makeup products from the brand a few months back here which are very much in rotation for me. By Terry products are available at byterry.com, Nordstrom, Barney NY, Beautylish, Spacenk, Cult Beauty, NetaPorter.*Press samples
