As an esthetician, I can tell you this is a horrible option for hyaluronic acid serum. I used it faithfully for about 6 months event though I saw no difference because I know you must give products time to make a change. This never did anything at all, no hydration no brightening no plumping....nothing:( I suggest if you want a good hydrating product try PTR glycolic/hyaluronic serum or Dermalogica hydrating booster. This is a massive waste of your hard earned money.
I love PTR products and this Hyaluronic Acid makes no exceptions!
This serum is very hydrating! You only need a pea size drop and it will moisturize your entire face. You put the moisturizer on top to look it up. It works beautifully!
If you have try patches, simply dab it on the areas and it will hydrates your skin really well. I love this product. I am almost finishing the entire bottle and I can see my skin is no longer dehydrated. I highly recommend this product. Good luck girls.
i had a chemical burns on my face from mixing acne treatments- it was horrible! even the wind hurt my face. and all moisturizers were immediately soaked up and disappeared on my skin. i had to moisturize every 10mins! i finally bought this serum because i was desperate. and i am sooo glad i have this serum!! my damaged and painful skin found relief and helped my skin heal. i even added some serum to my other moisturizers (like hand creams i keep in my purse etc). and i still have almost the whole bottle left! it is expensive but if used properly it should last a good while.
This product is very expensive and although I was happy with it I thought I could find the same quality for a lower price. I chose to buy a Skinceuticals hyaluronic acid product because it had more product for the price. However, it has a dropper dispenser and the PTR product comes in a clear glass pump bottle that I know is more hygienic. The PTR product is a lot thicker and really seems to make an immediate difference. The Skinceuticals, like a lot of the the hyaluronic acid products that I have tried, is very fluid and almost like water. I still had a tiny amount of the PTR to use and I realized that I had missed the weight of it. I agree with the other reviews about the price, I probably won't buy it again for a while.
I love the amount of Hyaluronic acid that this product contains. But it is waaaaaaay to expensive. There is a brand called "babyface skin care" that sells exclusively on ebay. It has this same product for a MUCH better price.
I found this product perfect for my oily skin type, especially at summertime. It's very light, hydrating, non-irritaing and non-comedogenic. I apply it alone (without any cream or serum) on a damp skin in the morning, and under my night cream in the evening. However, it's quite expensive comparing to other Hyaluronic Acid products..
Thought this product is supposed to be as good as it is been described...too bad it doesn't work on my outside dehydated but oily inside skin.
It clogged my skin BADLY, leaving bumps all over my both jaws!! Right now i am still recuperating from those clogs....though was advised by beautician to only use like one or two times/week, don't think i will dare TOUCH this product again.
Pls avoid if you have skin like me and skin easily prone to clogs.
I really wanted to like this product. However, it did nothing for my skin. It did not moisturize nor did it "plump" my skin. All this product did was make my skin feel quite sticky for about 10 minutes and then...nothing. Generally, I love Peter Thomas Roth prodcuts. But this VIZ-100 really let me down. I will return it to Sephora.
Just a comment that Sodium Hyaluronate is the same thing as Hyaluronic Acid. No it is not the same grade as the Hyaluronic Acid that is used as a dermal filler. It is appropriate for use as a cosmetic ingredient and does absorb around 1000 times its weight in water. If you want to know more about the grades of this ingredient please visit the web page below. Hyaluronic Acid in a high dosage such as this one should get noticeable results on fine lines when used.
This is fabulous stuff. Makes my skin very smooth when used under a moisturizer at night. The results for me were pretty immediate, noticed a difference the next morning but I know this won't be the case for everyone. I know this isn't cheap per se but compared to a lot of other skin care brands this is not bad and at least the science behind this product is more transparent and the bottle lasts a very long time. I like when I don't have to figure out how a product works when so many brands just say something silly and don't explain how it's different from anything else.
