A lightweight skin hydrating duo.

I love a slathering on a rich, indulgently creamy moisturiser as much as the next girl, but recently I've been favouring a lighter way of giving my skin a hydration hit. Especially in the mornings, when I don't want my skin to feel too 'heavy', I've been loving this gelly duo. Together they drench my skin and leave only a fresh, clean feeling and a healthy glow.

Avène Hydrance Optimal Hydrating Serum*

This silky feeling, gel-like serum contains Avène Thermal Spring Water - rainwater that has been purified and infused with minerals from it's fourty year journey through the French mountains - and Glycerin, a humectant that attracts moisture from the air and draws it into the skin.

The lightweight serum is very soothing and has a lovely fresh, clean smell, similar to Dove soap. I find it removes any feelings dryness/tightness and leaves skin feeling soft and supple.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser*

Labelled as a moisturiser, I wasn't expecting to find a translucent orange gelly inside this pot, but this lightweight formula with an refreshing citrus scent makes for a perfect day cream. Like the serum, this moisturiser is water based which of course makes it intensely hydrating, and is packed with Vitamin C from Amazonian Caru Caru Berries; one of the world's most potent sources of Vit C containing upto 60 times more than oranges! 

The gel-like formula smoothes over and melts into the skin straight away, ready for your make up. The Vitamin C helps to increase the skin's collagen production, leaving a plumped up and hydrated complexion with a healthy glow.
