New Rituals Hydrating Skincare Range

I was sent these new goodies from Rituals a few months ago and I was very excited to try them. Their new Hydrating range is perfect for those like me who suffer with dry skin. Here we have the 24 hour Hydrating Gel Cream and the Intense Moisture Serum.

First up, the 24 hour Hydrating Gel Cream. The first thing I must say about this product is I absolutely loved the texture. It is a gel consistency as the name suggests which I wasn't sure I would like for a moisturiser. I usually like a thick cream. But the texture of this means it sinks into the skin really fast without needing much. It will last you a long time!

They say it's packed with antioxidants and whilst I didn't really see any anti-ageing benefits, the main thing was the moisture. Especially during winter, I need a LOT of the stuff! This had an immediate effect and the consistency meant it felt cooling and calming with no stickiness. A definite winner. Available from John Lewis for £24.50.

Now for the Intense Moisture Serum. Again, it's texture all the way with this range. A similar gel formula to the moisturiser, it is packed full of my fave ingredient ever - hylaronic acid. You only need a small squirt of this before you apply the moisturiser. Another lovely product for anyone with dry skin. Available here for £25.50.

I always think Rituals is a range that is quite under-rated. I've always been impressed with their products and you know they are going to be high quality. Slightly pricier than maybe the mainstream, but I would much rather spend more on skincare and save on make-up.
