We’re Tying the Knot: I Finally Found the Silicone-Free Moisturizer of My Dreams Spa Week Editor All Stories, Beauty, Skin I am excited to announce that I’ve met the moisturizer of my dreams and we’re tying the knot. How We Met M-61’s Hydraboost Moisturizer is a highly concentrated silicone-free product that functions as both a moisturizer and a primer. It’s packed with hydrating peptides that fight wrinkles along with many other powerful natural ingredients. As someone with acne-prone, oily skin who is horrified by the thought of aging, my friend Paige thought we would be a perfect match. As they say, the rest is history. Our Love Story I knew I would love Hydraboost Moisturizer immediately because it contains absolutely NO silicone. Plus, it’s also a primer, a benefit I missed when I tore through the packaging after seeing the words “Silicone-Free”. What can I say, I was blinded by love at first sight. Still, I was wondering why my makeup had been staying in place so well for weeks. It usually starts melting away before noon. Needless to say, I was enchanted by this new development. When I sat down to write this story it all started to make sense. That’s so like Hydraboost, surprising me when I least expect it. Swoon! My point is that primers without silicone still deliver top-notch results. Speaking of Hydraboost’s silicone-free formula, you may not realize it, but this is rare for a moisturizer and almost unheard of for a primer. I’m not joking, I get so disappointed when I receive a new skincare product and one of its first three ingredients is some type of silicone. They irritate my skin and clog my pores, a big no-no for someone who is trying to combat acne and oil. The FDA directs that skincare ingredients must be listed in order of concentration by weight. If any form of silicone is at the top of a product’s ingredient list, you can be sure it won’t be making its way onto my face. One of the main reasons I’m not a fan of silicones in my skincare products is that they’re used to visually enhance skin’s texture and appearance, but they don’t actually work to improve either. Bummer, right? Hydraboost Moisturizer, with its silicone-free formula, lives up to all of its promises. It keeps my face hydrated all day while peptides plump my wrinkles from within to reduce pesky lines and increase the firmness of my skin. This product is full of wins, a total gem all around! Can’t you see why we’re a match made in heaven? Ingredients of Love Vitamin E – Neutralizes free radical damage, protects against UV damage, and promotes healing. Vitamin B5 – A water-binding substance that attracts and retains water to stabilize the skin’s barrier to reduce the loss of water. Peptides – Stimulate collagen building by absorbing deeper into the skin to stimulate collagen production. Peptides drastically improve skin’s cell production which thickens skin and plumps wrinkles from within. Tamarind – Significantly improves skin elasticity, hydration, and smoothness. Centella Asiatica – A natural ingredient that contains chemicals that strengthen skin and boost antioxidant activity. Aloe – Recommended for acne scarring and wound healing because it increases the synthesis of collagen and the production of hyaluronic acid in skin. Chamomile – Contains flavanoid and essential oils that possess significant anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy activity. It is widely used in Europe to treat psoriasis. Green Tea (Camellia Sinensis) – reduces inflammation while providing antioxidant effects.
