The Estee Lauder Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Lotion (£35) is my every day moisturiser which I have been using for around a month now. Previous to this, I used the Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme (also £35) from the same range which is one of my all time holy grail skincare products. It's a luxurious, thick, moisturising cream - just the ticket to sort out dry/very dry/dehydrated skin.

I recently went to an Estee Lauder counter in Glasgow to repurchase my little pot of Hydrationist cream when the lady mentioned the Hydrationist Lotion as a lighter alternative to the cream. I was a little hesitant at first as I know how dry my skin can be and the Hydrationist cream was the only product that has worked in improving the texture and appearance of my dry skin. After only a few days of using the Hydrationist Creme my makeup looked noticeably better and my foundation had more of a flawless finish, so you can understand why I was hesitant to try a new product - I didn't want to go back to my foundation clinging to random dry patches on my face - not a good look!

I usually do my research before buying any skincare products but as this was from the same range as the Hydrationist Creme which had worked so well for me in the past, I decided to give it a go. I actually preferred the lighter feel of the Hydrationist Lotion on my skin and it gives me the same results! I love the packaging and the fact that there is a pump on the product so that you're not sticking your fingers in a pot all the time and taking out too much product. I use this product in the morning and at night on top of either: the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (£48) or Hydraluron (£24.99) as these serums give my skin even more of a hydration boost. 

I know, I used the word "hydration" a LOT in this post...

However, the Estee Lauder Hydrationist range, from my experience, does exactly that, hydrates the skin. It doesn't just temporarily make my skin appear hydrated until I cleanse my face again. I love that i'm not left with that horrible tightness around my mouth and forehead any longer. The longer i've used this product, the better the results are becoming. This range is obviously targeted at people like me with very dry/dehyrdated skin so if that's you too and you're struggling to find a moisturiser that works, I would highly recommend this product.
