By Terry | Hyaluronic Hydra Powder

It’s been a while since I’ve been inspired to review a beauty product, especially a loose powder, but after buying this on my flight back to London and trying it, I had to share one of my new favourites that has immediately made it into my daily routine since.

Product:By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Powder

Price: £42 (£36 BA Duty Free)

This is my first By Terry product I managed to convince myself to actually buy and I couldn’t be happier. Part of the reason why I was hesitant, is I feel it takes me ages to finish loose powders and I still have quite a few laying around, but I totally fell for the scarcity trick the retailed play on us and was sold by Duty free offering a cute travel kabuki with the powder.

It comes in a typical clear plastic loose powder packaging with a classic By Terry purple coloured lid.  This is a translucent powder with a matte finish that can be applied on bare skin or over makeup and is supposed to keep the skin hydrated and reduce the look of imperfections.  The product also claims to have “overnight transformative properties.”

I can’t say much about if it has improved my skin in anyway, but the main reason I love using this product so much, is it’s ability to keep my skin relatively shine-free and soft to the touch all day long.  It’s not a matte finish that gives you a flat look, but rather a beautifully smooth or silky finish that makes it look like you are having a good skin day.  I haven’t tried this on bare skin yet, but excited to see how it stands in hot and humid weather on holiday in a couple of months!

Even though it takes me ages to finish a loose powder, I do appreciate that a little bit of the fine powder goes a long way, which means this little tub will last me forever.  Typically I do brush a little extra in my t-zone to keep any extra shine at bay for the day.

6 hrs later – still pretty shine-free and soft to the touch!

Recently saw a review on Becca Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder and I am so curious as to how it feels when you apply it!?  It might be my next purchase next time I hit up a Sephora, but in the meantime what’s your favourite powder to use?
