Shu Uemura Depsea Hydrability Moisturizing Lotion


Being a teenager during exam season, is possibly one of the most stressful things that you will experience. Constant revision, lack of sleep and sitting the exam hoping that you've done your best, tires you out and also has a negative effect on your skin. Through scientific studies, it has been proved that when we are stressed, no matter how old you are, a hormone that is called cortisol is released and this can cause many skin problems. Cortisol is the number one suspect to blame for dry and damaged skin, it decreases our skins natural way of producing hylaronic acid (this acid acts as a natural moisturiser for our skin). The hormone allows hydration, in a metaphorical sense, to leave our skin and therefore, the result that this has is dry and damaged skin. I'm pretty sure that nobody wants to experience this.  

Over exam season, I unfortunately have experienced dry skin, and being the beauty fanatic that I am, I immediately searched the internet for a product that would have an immediate effect and one that wouldn't break my bank account. After reading many product reviews and the product information, I eventually chose a product and decided to purchase Shu Uemura Depsea Hydrability Moisturizing Lotion which is priced at £25.00 for a 150ml bottle. 

Purchasing a skin product from Shu Uemura was kind of nerve-wracking, when purchasing products for my skin, I usually limit myself to only one brand for skincare, not knowing the effect that this product would have on my skin was quite scary. However, I couldn't have been more wrong! The day the product arrived, I was over the moon and just couldn't wait to use it. I removed my makeup, washed my face and tried the product. When using the lotion, I poured a minimal amount onto a cotton pad and applied it to my face. Obviously, no product is going to give you amazing results one second after application, so I returned back to my usual activities for the rest of the day. The next morning when I woke, I could not believe the amazing effect that the lotion had had on my skin! My skin felt renewed and at last, the dryness had gone! 

There isn't one way that I could fault the product. I believe that the price is very reasonable for such a respectable brand and a great product. This has definitely became one of my favourite skincare products.
