      Great stuff

      Recently I had a bad outbreak of dry type Rosacea which always flares up in the winter months. My skin was itchy, red & broke out in little spots. I could no longer use the moisteriser which I had previously been using because it just made it worse. My last saviour was Environ collestrum gel which really did help last winter but this has a short shelf life (6 weeks after opening) & also is not too great at moisterising. My sister who also has rosacea recommended Decleor hydra floral so I purchased this as part of the Decleor skin renewal set from QVC. The hydra floral claims to:
      immediately relaxes the skin and quenches its thirst,
      deeply replenishes,
      provides continuous and intensive hydration +53%,
      protects against pollution + 31%.

      And contains some wonderful natural ingredients:
      Néroli Essential Oil, Mint and Orange Blossom Floral Waters, Original Orange Water, Codium Extract - a Marine Alga, Wild Pansy Extract, Hazelnut Plant Oil, Shea Butter, Plant Squalane, Provitamine B5, Microproteins of Moringa oleifera

      It is packaged in a frosted glass jar, is thick in consistency & has a beautiful fresh floral fragrance.
      I first used the cream on the night of the day on which I recieved it. Only a little is needed as it distributes over the skin fairly easily. I noticed my skin did tingle a little but this was only for a few seconds after applying & only seemed to be on my first use so I guess it was just my skin getting used to the ingredients.It absorbs very easily & provides immediate hydration.

      On waking the next morning my skin still felt very moisterised & was no longer itchy, the redness although still there had faded a great deal & spots had also lessened.
      I've now been using the hydra floral morning & night for just over a week & the feel & appearance of my skin has improved day by day. Instead of being red & parched it is now plumped out, dewy & super hydrated. This is an amazing cream & I can now see why it is one of Decleor's best sellers. It may seem expensive at £38 a 50ml jar but I think a small price to pay for one of the best creams on the market.
      Currently available from QVC as part of the 4 piece skin renewal set at the great price of £43

      Fabulous mosituriser that tackles dry skin

      My guilty pleasure is watching QVC especially the beauty shows. It was here that I discovered Decleor which is a premium French beauty brand , that primarily uses plants , nuts and flowers in their products.

      QVC have a resident beauty expert and run 1 hour shows where a brand expert will demonstrate the application of products and explain what skin type/problems they best suit. I have dry sensitive skin but had been using an anti ageing moisturiser which wasn't delivering the results promised.

      So I was very interested when they demonstrated Hydra Floral moisturiser and explained that if your skin wasn't hydrated then you were probably wasting money on anti ageing creams as they won't work. They recommended using Hydra Floral to address problems with dry skin and then go back to the anti aging regime.

      So I decided to try to see whether it made a difference.

      The packaging
      Declor products come boxed and the 50ml size comes in a heavy frosted plastic/glass jar with a plastic lid which is easy to open and close. Inside there is a further protection with another plastic lid. This is the standard packaging for Decleor and it feels indestructible.

      The product.
      This is a smooth cream with a lovely texture and a consistency that is rich but not too thick . It is aimed at normal to dry skin and is designed to moisturise, hydrate and soften the skin.

      It smells gorgeous a combination of plants flowers and fruits which is light and refreshing. Important for me as I don't like heavily scented floral scents in a face cream.

      This cream can be used morning and night after cleansing the skin. Decleor always recommend using one of their aromessence under their moisturisers, a few drops of oil, but to be honest I think you can get good results without the oil.I tend to use this in the morning and then use Decleor Balm at night.

      I use this on my face and neck and rub a small amount between my fingers and then apply with upward circular movements. It feels gorgeous and immediately my skin feels softer and looks hydrated. It softens the lines and my skin looks better after applying.
      It causes me no irritation and after using this for several weeks , the condition of my skin improved enormously it was particularly good at ridding me of the dry flaky patches , but most importantly my skin felt hydrated and looked plumper.
      What I do now is use this periodically to manage my dry skin problem and in between use Decleor Excellence De LAge for the anti aging benefits.

      The main Ingredients are:
      Néroli Essential Oil, Mint and Orange Blossom Floral Waters, Original Orange Water, Codium Extract - a Marine Alga, Wild Pansy Extract, Hazelnut Plant Oil, Shea Butter, Plant Squalane, Provitamine B5, Microproteins of Moringa oleifera

      Decleor do not test on animals


      Would I Recommend?
      I would highly recommend this to any age group particularly those with dry skin as it does deliver amazing results and keeps skin hydrated and dryness at bay. I would use this all the time as it does soften lines plump up the skin and my skin feels like it has had a good drink, but I feel I need to use a cream targeted at anti- ageing as well to try and keep the lines at bay.

      I do use other creams in between using this , but I would say that this lasts at least 3 months, a little goes a long way , it is easily absorbed and skin does not look or feel greasy after applying, so good under makeup.

      This gets rave reviews on QVC and everywhere else I have bought this and they are well deserved.

      Yes it is quite pricy, but for me it delivers results as promised and does not irritate my skin.

      I would not be without this now so it gets 5 stars from me.

      Price and Availability
      Online from Decleor, QVC and many others, plus House of Fraser Stores. Shop around as prices vary from £30 to £40 for 50ml.
      I usually buy from QVC as I can try for 30 days and return and get my money back if it doesn't suit.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Overall a good everday moisturiser

        I have been using this moisturiser for a few weeks now and have seen an improvement in the general surface texture of my skin which is now much smoother and supple and looks fresher with a healthy glow. This product is recommended for all skin typles providing a 'continuous drip feed hydration combined with targeted anti pollution plant active ingredients' and although quite pricey, around £36.00 for a 50ml pot, this product will last a long time as unlike cheaper moisturisers you only need to use a very small amount. It is recommended that you apply the moisturiser after a few drops of the Aromessence Neroli. I have tried this approach but as I have a normal skin type rather than dry I find that by using both products together it takes longer for it to sink in now that my skin is more hydrated so I have changed to applying the Neroli just in the evening with my night cream and the moisturiser is working equally as well. Applying makeup on top of this product is a dream. You need to use less foundation and it appears even with better coverage. The cream itself has a wonderful, light, creamy texture which glides on beautifully and has a lovely floral smell. I have used other Decleor products but this is my first purchase of a facial moisturiser and I am definately impressed.

          I LOVE this cream. smells gorgeous. really gets absorbed. however recently my skin became very dry and sensitive so I have switched to an equally wonderful product by decleor- nutridevine- for dryer skin. it also has fewer added perfumes so its is gentler on the skin.

          A pleasure to use

          This is a beautiful moisturiser and definately one of Decleors hero products that everyone should notice a difference in their skin when using. Although it is not exactly cheap (around £37 fora 50ml tub) it lasts a long time as you only need a small amount each time to see the effects.

          The cream is quite a thick and dense consistency but still very light in texture when you apply it. It almost turns more fluid as you put it on your face and it sinks right in to the skin. It works best if you apply a few drops of the neroli oil prior to the cream, however, I've found the cream to still be effective on its own. It smells absolutely gorgeous - slightly floral with a hint of citrus from the orange water - and the lovely hint of neroli through it. It's a lovely fresh and clean summer smell which is not at all overpowering and makes it a pleasure to apply.

          Once on the face, the cream sinks in within a few mins leaving your skin looking visibly more plump and youthful. It leaves your face glowingly healthy looking and it feels incredibly soft and velvety too. It works as a good base for makeup too as it doesn't leave your face greasy or oily. I don't think the main use of this product is to target wrinkles - decleor does specific products for that issue, however it decreases the visibility of any small lines by plumping out the skin. As an all round moisturiser this is the best I've tried.

          I have repurchased this product several times and am a huge fan of decleor products. I think this has aided me in my still looking like a 20 yr old when I'm nearly 30!! So if that doesn't convince you then nothing will!! Even my boyfriend has taken to pinching it as he loves the smell so much!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Hydra floral is by far the most excellent cream that Decleor have produced. This product promises to boost the moisture content of the skin to 100% when used in conjunction with the appropriate facial oil. This product definatley works. Having used this cream since its launch I foolishly swapped brands. Unfortunatley my skin suffered and been extremely dry and dehydrated. After a few months I decided to return to this product and after just 1 month my skin was so much better. This cream has a gorgeous floral scent and the texture is divine! This product come in a jar or a tube at the cost of £26. It is also avaliable as a fluid for those summer months. I would reccomend this product to all with dry or sensitive skins.
