Having never heard of hyaluronic acid before, I was curious to try it out. I looked it up on WebMD just be sure that it was safe and WebMD said “Some people apply hyaluronic acid to the skin for healing wounds, burns, skin ulcers, and as a moisturizer. There is also a lot of interest in using hyaluronic acid to prevent the effects of aging. In fact, hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a “fountain of youth.” However, there is no evidence to support the claim that taking it by mouth or applying it to the skin can prevent changes associated with aging.” I was happy to try it even if it didn’t live up to the claims.
The package says “100% pure hyaluronic acid serum gently binds formidable amounts of moisture to the skin and its layers while preserving your skins most important youthful characteristics such as suppleness, elasticity and tone. This serum nourishes, soothes and moisturizes your skin, helping you maintain a beautiful youthful glow while protecting your skin”. This brand is also produced without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOLs. So it seems that it’s pretty pure and since it’s made in the USA I felt good about the quality.
The instructions are to apply several drops to clean, washed skin and gently massage into the skin. Allow product to completely absorb into skin before applying makeup. Use twice a day in the morning and evening.
The serum has no discernable fragrance. It has a slightly smooth feel, but not oily. The serum absorbs quickly so I’ll keep using it and see what the results are.
