Hmm, I can see i am definitely in the minority here, but Hydraluron did not work at all for me, it actually made my skin more dry it seems! I have used it every morning (under moisturiser and foundation) for the last few months as I wanted to give it some time to work.
On me, after I apply it and it sinks in, it leaves my skin feeling tight. If i smile or grimace you can see very pronounced lines caused by the hydraluron. It doesn't seem to go well at all under makeup, and will ball up. It also did not increase my dryness at all, which is what I bought it for. Definitely not the right product for me.

I too am a convert!
I saw this in Boots after using the rest of a skinceuticals mask and deciding I needed to replace it with some thing I could use on a daily basis. I picked up the box only to find a tiny tube inside when I got home (that will teach me to read the box properly). I was quite disappointed when I saw it but applied a tiny amount of the gel and just carried on each night as directed. I must admit I was skeptical but I really see a difference in my skin, it's not so dry and definitely more plump. I will be repurchasing.

For me this was a meh. I haven't noticed much difference at all and I have been using it morning and night. Maybe I just don't need it or something. I have finished a tube now and I will see what I look like now I am NOT using it before I make up my mind as to whether it made a difference enough to buy again.
Price is OK. Packaging, pretty good.

My skin is oily and I didn't realise it was dehydrated until I tried this and saw the difference in my skin. My skin is more glowy, plump and the small lines which I thought were inevitable irreversible age lines have all but disappeared.
The tube packaging is hygienic and I like the no nonsense graphic design.
The price at £24.99 for 30ml strikes me as very reasonable for a quality product with quality ingredients, that doesn't promise the earth but actually delivers on what it does promise (especially when you compare to something like EL night repair which is full of 'cones and is £44 for 30ml). Plus, this is frequently on 3for2 type deals @ Boots or you can buy it with Advantage card points which adds to the value for money factor.

I cannot believe how much more supple this little tube of heaven has made my skin! There is really no better word to describe it - whenever I touch my face it just feels more plump and elastic, just lovely.
My skin is combination, with dry cheeks, especially when the weather gets a bit colder, and it always used to feel tight after I washed my face. I can happily say that is not the case any longer! I always thought I needed a heavier moisturiser (and sometimes that is true), but whereas moisturisers hydrate the top layer of the skin, this goes further down for under-skin hydration. So beware, it is NOT a substitute for your moisturiser. But it is light, suitable for all skin types and it sinks in very quickly, so you can put whatever you would usually use on top of it: serums, treatments, moisturisers.
It's pricey for such a small tube (about £22 I think for 30ml) but I shall never be without this.

Its worked for everyday use, my moisturiser lasts a lot longer without the need of an extra dab.. so it does what it says on the package and I'm happy with that. I love that its available in Boots so I can pop into my local branch for it.
The real test for me is when i'm on a long-haul flight..

edit: i'm reserving this in my stash for emergencies--e.g. extremely dry patches of skin. it does make moisturizer more effective, but on my skin it also leads to breakouts! dunno why this is.
Perhaps I was wrong to purchase it in the first place--I do have dry skin, but it's young, and maybe this was too strong for it? All I know is, that it took 3 applications (actually, six, since I used it morning and night)--and my skin now has a bunch of under-the-skin pimples festering (!!) and my pores on my cheeks and nose most definitely look enlarged (!!!!!). Not by a huge amount, but noticeable to myself, at least, in the mirror. I have (had?) good skin and this has me a bit mad because I've heard that once your pores are enlarged, nothing can shrink them down again.
I am ABSOLUTELY positively CERTAIN it was this product that did it, as I was using my otherwise tried and tested skincare regimen as usual. SAAF Pure cleanser to remove makeup, Dermalogica Tri-Cleanse, and the very humble NIVEA cream that I've been using for years and years without issue.
I would have reduced the rating further to a 1--were it not for the fact that the dry skin does look a bit better moisturized than usual. Just a bit better though. Not enough to justify the crazy under-the-skin pimples and most-definitely-larger pores! What pisses me off the most is that I only used this 3 times and i have a huge (to a mouse) bottle that's gone to waste. I won't give it to anyone either, because i don't wish these "results" on anybody. This didn't work for me, it might for you, but I will NOT repurchase.

Amazing and once more amazing. Filled in my over 40's dehydrated lines, made me look alive, provided lasting power to my make up amazing. Been using this for a few days and have noticed a difference, my skin is combination dehydrated. I have a pretty good and expensive regime! So I can honestly say it is this which has made the difference.
I was buying more and more foundations in an attempt to get one to suit who knew this was the trick.
For info I cleanse in shower with Shiseido and Clarisonic, Hydraluron, Clinique moisture surge, Murad oil free spf 30 and any foundation I like.

I managed to get a sample of this from Boots, I carry little MAC tester pots around with me and sample everything before i hand over my hard earned cash on a promise of miracles only to find its rubbish and i cant get my money back. If its as good as they say them samples shouldn't be a problem because samples = sales...and after using this clear unscented looks like nothing gel for a few days i rushed out to purchase a full size. My skin is oily and starting to age,,(40) my issues where not hydration as such but lack of something...this gel plumps your skin, smoothes it and has balanced the oiliness i had so that i dont even powder after foundation anymore...its certainly not made my skin dry, but it has balanced the oiliness i had. I apply this to a clean slightly damp face and pat it in..leave to dry and then add my moisturizer. I highly recommend this..even if you just grab a squirt in a jar to try...x

Updated March 2013 - have discovered this makes the best primer for under eyes. Just tap tap tap a tiny amount & look for creasing of your concealer. You'll be looking for a long time because you won't find any :-)
Dear Indeed Labs,
Why is this lovely little product not readily available in the USA? Why are you holding out on the women (and men) of this country who are hungry for purposeful products that do what they say with little fuss & a minimal ingredient list? Is this a ploy for makeup alley to reach out to their UK or Canadian brethren in order to obtain this? Perhaps a Machiavellian way to foster world peace?
I will come clean to you, I don't use Hydraluron 2x per day. But it speaks to its efficacy that I can use it 1x per day under a moisturizing SPF and still see results. You allow me to continue to use my retinol products during that time of the year where flakes & spots would otherwise be plentiful. You're not a miracle worker, but you don't claim to be - I appreciate your honesty. Because its the smoother more hydrated skin that I'm after, not a lot of mumbo jumbo.
Thanks to let us know when you'll be visiting the USA, I would be happy to invite you over for a pasta so we can continue to get to know each other. Because from what I've seen, this could be the beginning of a great relationship.

Best thing since sliced bread, perfect for when your skin needs that extra boost! I have found that since using this product I have not had to use as much of my normal moisturiser and my skin is feeling so much more nourished! I have literally recommended this product to anyone who will listen and now have all my family and friends jumping on the bandwagon! So glad I found this! Also bought nanoblur but am enjoying the results of hydraluron that I have not got round to taking the nanoblur out the box!

Ok, so I NEVER review something based on ONE SINGLE use.. but I had to for this product.
I have noticed that my face has been looking less 'plump' lately. The dreaded 3-0 is fast approaching and I figured its just time for things to start going south. I have often been told by various beauty therapists that my skin is quite dehydrated, despite the fact I have quite oily skin. I have no major lines or wrinkles yet, but I noticed that the skin under my eyes was looking a bit more 'crêpey', probably due to said dehydration and also the fact that as its now winter, everything just looks drier.
I used this as instructed, as a serum under my usual skincare routine, which includes other serums and also moisturiser and HOLY COW, what a difference it has made. My fine lines under my eyes have pretty much 90% gone, granted I am sure this is just a surface effect and probably not long lasting (but they do say the effects are with continued use). But, the fact that this product seems to do what it says, which is in effect to 'super charge' your existing moisturisers cannot be denied.
I will update this after a few weeks to say if there have been any side effects or what the results are like after continued use and what the long term effects are, if any, after more consistent long term use.
The only downside is just how small the product is - 30 ml - and at £24.99 its not really cheap, but there is way more expensive, less effective stuff out there that is for sure!

This has got to be hands-down the BEST skin care discovery of my entire beauty devoted life! Thats a huge statement from a compulsive product junkie :)
What this is (from the company);
Hydraluron is a hydration serum insppired by injectable hydration treatments employed in Swiss clinics. These hydration treatments employ a fine needle that is used to administer hundreds of microinjections of hyaluronic acid into the skin. Hydraluron is a less invasive, more affordable treatment that can be incorporated into any daily regime.
The mechanism of action of Hydraluron is two-fold. Firstly, Hydraluron uses the worlds purest grade of hyaluronic acid* from the Netherlands as it's hydration active. Hyaluronic acid is a superb hydration ingredient that can hold up to 1,000 times it's weight in water. It is found in abundance in young skin.
Our pure grade has a microgranule-like powder that features a low density and a polydispersity below 1.5, which simply means greater quality, exceptional safety and extraordinary consistency. Secondly, a bio-engineered strain of marine red algae causes controlled and mild stimulation of skin turnover to allow thorough penetration of Hydraluron's hyaluronic acid.
Water/Aqua/Eau, Propanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ahnfeltia Concinna Extract, Carbomer, Butylene Glycol, Disodium Edta, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol
*Note - not a lot of crapy fillers!
I absolutely love this and would readily recommend it to anyone, regardless of skin type! I think everyone would benefit from this serum-like treatment but those with dehydrated, dry or even occasionally flaky skin will be especially wowed by it.
There is no noticable scent, the texture is that of a light gel, it spreads easily, the absorption is almost instant making it ideal for layering of additional skin care & makeup products. What i love about it is the fact that the results are both instant and long term. We all love long term benefits but there is something to be something to be said about instant gratification - LOVE!!! My skin looked and felt plumper right away, radiance and the glow factor was obvious and to top it all my makeup lasted longer & looked fresher that very day.
I've been using the Hydraluron for about a month and i just cant stop raving about it - its made my complexion so much better and i cant imagine not using it anymore! Its one of those rare things that feel good when i am using it and acctually looks good when i am using it :) And as you all know that statement doesnt come lightly in the world of beauty for anyone or anything for that matter. In a world full of false promises, splashy ads, fancy models, overpaid spokesmen, expensive glass bottles and $300 "magic" potions - its amazing to find something that really delivers what it claims and promises to! Not to mention that the increased boost of hydration will allow you to use less of that costly night cream that claims to moisturize in the first place. Yes it might not be so fancy on the vanity and it doesnt have the glamorous appeal of a silvery spatula BUT it will look great in the mirror - and isnt that what really matters in the end?
Plus its Canadian - and yes i am proud of that!
