By Terry Hyaluronic Pressed Hydra-Powder and Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder Reviews


By Terry has recently brought out a pressed version of their Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder. This loose powder has been on my wish list for so long to try out, as I have heard so many good reviews on it. I really liked the sound of the new pressed powder and when it launched, I bought it. As there was a special offer on, I decided to also get the loose powder, so I could try them both out. 


Before I bought these two powders, I only owned one product from By Terry, the Hyaluronic Sheer Nude in 3 Nude Pulp (review and swatch).



Hyaluronic Pressed Hydra-Powder

Available: Lookfantastic UKBy Terry 2.5g £16, 7.5g £38, By Terry US $20.00-$52.00

The Hyaluronic Pressed Hydra-Powder is a pressed translucent setting powder. It is a universal colourless shade, to suit all skin types, tones and ages.


This powder is infused with skincare benefits of hyaluronic acid and on the By Terry website it says “hyaluronic acid is an amazing moisturising, plumping ingredient that locks in hydration to leave skin smooth and radiant. It’s a moisture magnet that holds up to 1000 times its weight in water and keeps it there for long lasting hydration. Mica pearls improve long lasting hold of makeup and provide a silky second skin feeling”.

It mattifies the complexion, invisibly creates a flawless finish and banishes shine. They describe it as having a weightless silky texture. It does come with a little sponge, which you can use to add more product throughout the day.  


I love to use a pressed powder to set my t-zone area I just find they work best for me personally on that area. I bought this powder to use on that area, but have also tried it a few times on my under eye area, so I could see how it works for that as well.

I found with this powder, it has a beautiful formula and that you don’t need lots of product.

When I used this to set my t-zone, it sets everything in place and mattiefies the skin, taking away any shine. I wouldn’t say it is a flat matte, it looks very natural and flawless, which I love. It blurs the skin a bit, so the pores look less visible and on my forehead I have some wrinkles and those appear to be smoothed out a bit. I like the matte finish for my forehead where I can get a bit oily throughout the day, my chin and also for setting any areas with blemishes as well.

As this is a colourless powder it obviously doesn’t add any colour, which I especially like that for my chin area. On my forehead I don’t mind either way.

This powder feels super lightweight, so I don’t even feel like I am wearing it. I have dry skin and it doesn’t cling to any dry patches. Even though it is a matte formula, it has the hydrating part, so it doesn’t dry the skin out. I do find I need to reapply some on my forehead part way through the day, as it starts to get a bit shiny. Once I have reapplied, it takes the shine away instantly. Even though I have added more product, it never once starts to look cakey.

I did try this a few times on my under eye area to see how it was. It sets the concealer and had slightly worn off at the end of the day. It is a lovely finely miled powder, which looks so natural and flawless. It doesn’t sink into any fine lines or accentuate any either. It isn’t drying on the under eye area. The one thing this powder doesn’t offer for the under eye area is brightening, which I do prefer for that area.

The Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder is a loose translucent setting powder. As with the pressed powder it is a universal colourless shade, to suit all skin types, tones and ages.

This powder also contains hyaluronic acid. This powder instantly blurs minor imperfections, minimize pores, even out skin tones, fill in fine lines and controls shine. They describe it as having a weightless silky texture.  


I love to use a loose powder to set my under eye area, I just find they work best for me personally on that area. I bought this powder to use on that area, but have also tried it a few times on my t-zone, so I could see how it works for that as well.

I found with this powder, it has a beautiful formula, which actually feels soft to the touch, which I didn’t find with the pressed version. As with the pressed powder, you don’t need lots of product. The one thing I have noticed with this powder, when you are tipping the product out, you get that powdery smell.

When I used this to set my under eye area, it sets my concealer in place and stops like that all day, unlike the pressed powder, which I found didn’t last all day. This powder again isn’t a flat matte, it has no shimmer and is colourless.

It looks really natural and flawless, and doesn’t sink into any fine lines or accentuate them either. It feels super lightweight and comfortable, so you don’t feel like you are wearing it. As with the pressed powder it doesn’t dry the eye area out, as it has the hyaluronic acid in.

This isn’t a brightening powder, which as I said previously, I do prefer for my under eye area. It has been nice to have the option of a powder that isn’t brightening. I have found when I am wearing a really shimmery eye look that actually the non brightening powder works quite well with that.

I have tried this a few times for setting my t-zone and any blemishes. I found my opinions on this loose powder for setting that area, are along a similar line to what I thought for the pressed. I would say this one feels soft to the touch, whereas I didn’t find that with the pressed. I found the pressed powder to just set everything in place on the t-zone and blemishes that bit better.

Leave me a comment below. Have you tried either of these powders and what do you think to them?

  1. For a minute I thought this was similar to the Becca hydro powder that one that apparently feels like water, but instead this sounds like a powder that keeps moisture in, is that right? I personally prefer a set powder anyways, I find them less messy so better news that that worked better ;) xx

    1. This will lock in moisture. Yes the pressed powders are definitely less messy and that one did work better for me.
