Hydration is key—and Dermalogica’s latest in-bottle magic is here to prove that once and for all. The Circular Hydration Serum is their latest addition to the Dermalogica Daily Skin Health range and it’s one we’re in favour of permanently adding to our routines.

Packed with hyaluronic acid for enhanced penetration of the skin’s surface, the formulation is also boosted with polyglutamic acid that recharges the skin’s ability to draw moisture from within. Extracted via a pipette tube, it’s a fuss-free and easy way to control and dispense the amount of product that goes onto your skin. A slightly thicker layer during your night time routine will have you rising to a thoroughly supple and well-hydrated visage in the morning.
