One of the best gels/serums in the market.. Very hydrating and soothing. Great for those with Very Sensitive, Acne-Prone and Dry Skin combination. It has absolutely no fragrance and has a gel consistency which is extremely easy to spread. I LOVE the pump on this bottle because it is super controllable as to the amount you need.

This is a must have product for me. I use it everyday as a part of my night time routine along with the Reviva labs DMAE under eye serum. It has faded my acne scars and makes my skin so soft and smooth. I highly recommend this product. It works better that a lot of more expensive serums out there

I'ge been reading about HA and picked this up on a whim at the vitamin store since it was cheap. I think this causes my pores to clog although it does a great job hydrating. Clogging is not okay. Need to see if it is the HA or other ingredients in the serum.

It seems that this has some form of silicone in it as a filler ingredient, and to me that causes skin issues with some people, or for it to react with other products. I would only use this at night as a serum. It does work to plump up your skin, but Ulta charges $22 for it when I've seen it online for $11. That's too steep for such a small bottle. Derma E has a hyaluronic acid serum that I want to try instead, and their brand is organic as far as I can tell.

After slathering on chemical ridden, smelly and greasy creams, I decided to give this serum a try after the reading the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid on the Truth In Aging website.
Serums are notoriously drying; I stopped using this for a while, but after I changed my skin care regimen to include Vitamin E (using Vitamin E oil on my face before bed), I saw that the HA was working much better. This is a delicious bottle of Perrier for your skin. Use it under makeup and it will keep your skin from forming the dreaded dry skin flakes.
Just to mention - I like the dewy look - well ok, I don't actually like it; but I read recently that "dewy" skin is attractive to men because it reminds them of what women look like after you know what. Bah! Sue me! I'm single! I need all the help I can get.

This makes my skin soft and smooth. I am very oily and it does not add oil to my skin. I love mineral makeups and this helps to smooth any roughness before applying minerals. It is very inexpensive compared to some of the other Hyaluronic products I have purchased in the past and delivers the same results. I love it because it works and does not break the bank!

I have very fair, dry skin. Not overly sensitive. I'm frankly shocked at the reviews this product gets. While it's reasonably priced and has a nice pump package, I have two major issues.
First, this causes pretty much anything you put on top of it to pill up and smear off. Anything. I'd much prefer a moisturizer with HA in it, like CeraVe PM. I can't use this product alone, and therefore it's pretty useless if I can't put anything on top.
Secondly, I do not break out, basically ever and this product has given me massive, painful pimples. I have literally about 8 of them, including one dangerously close to my eyelid where I don't think I can actually treat it with anything. I've also got about 8 on my forehead, but I suppose I'll spare you the details.
Not something that provides any real benefit and causes speed bump skin. No thank you.

The more I'm advancing into the world of Skincare, the more I'm learning about the individual components of popular skincare products. Hyaluronic Acid is something that I have never really heard of prior to using this serum. I researched a little bit and browsed the MUA forums and found that Hyaluronic Acid is really sought-after for those with dry skin. It can be taken orally as a pill or in the form of a serum, cream or toner. Although I don't have dry skin, I thought it would be a fantastic serum to try to keep my skin hydrated 24/7. I do once a while have a little dryness from using harsh cleansers (such as African Black Soap) or exfoliation, that will typically occur around my mouth and chin area. Usually if that occurs, it will be fixable within a couple of days with a good moisturizer. I have been using this serum for 4 weeks now, 1-2 times daily, using 1/2 a pump each application. The consistency of the serum is very light and is kind of like a runny gel. One applied to the skin, it seems to distribute well all over the face. I'll never have to go back for more. It may feel sticky for about 15 seconds, but the stickiness goes away completely within 30 seconds and you are left with hydrated skin. The serum doesn't leave any traces of product left on the skin's surface so you are able to layer a moisturizer over it fine or even your makeup. What's different about Hyaluronic Acid than a standard moisturizer is that it really works within your skin. It won't give your skin the illusion of moisturize with an oily residue. You may not notice it right away if your skin is dry, but after continued use you will see the results. Since using this product, I haven't had one instance of dryness. My skin is always hydrated and radiant. Crazily enough, I have smile lines that drive me insane because many times my foundation will settle in the fine lines and I'll have to touch up with powder a couple times throughout the day. My makeup hasn't seemed to settle at all in those lines since I've been using this. Also, the little corners around my nose are typically a little dry and now they are completely moisturized. Hydraluronic Acid has now become a staple in my everyday skin routine and I don't want to be without out it! The price of this serum is $20 for 1 oz of product. It may be a little pricey, but it's something that works well for me and I will continue purchasing it once I run out. Like I mentioned, I've used the serum for 4 weeks, sometimes twice a day and I have 2/3 product left. The bottle should last me for 2 more months. So, a little over $6.60 a month - it's completely worth it.

I have been using this for several weeks. I am 50 years old and have dry skin smile lines when I smile. This serum has really helped my skin look for youthful and less dry and less dehydrated. I am also taking the Hyaluronic Acid pill so hopefully they both will keep me looking younger.

Last step in my night-time skin care routine: One pump of this H.A. serum mixed with two drops of jojoba oil combine with clean fingers and blend into skin using an upward circular motion. My skin drinks this combo up and the result is plumped skin when I wake up in the morning. This does not break me out- I have sensitive skin with a limited amount of oil in my T-zone.

I've been wanting to try a Hyaluronic Acid based serum for sometime, but have been a little wary. A friend of mine recommended this line (both into natural products) and so I decided to add it to my luckyvitamin.com order. I have sensitive skin that has dry patches and cystic acne along my chin line. I've found that it's best used over a moisturizer (sorry serum people, sometimes they just work better on top of the moisturizer!). I've been using it over Suki's Nourishing Face oil and have found the combination awesome...moisturizing but allowing skin to breathe...no heavy night cream needed anymore!
The ingredient list is short: Demineralized spring water, glycerine (veg.), Hyaluronic Acid, polysorbate 20, hydrolyzed mucopolysaccharides, green tea extract, hydroxyethylcellulose, caramelized sugar, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, and citris acid
It come in a 1oz glass pump bottle. One pump is all you need.

A good Hyaluronic Acid based serum to help retain water in the skin.
Only problem: it peels off when applied another moisturizer on top, indeed any moisturizer, even from the Reviva line, not to mention foundation or makeups.....
And this is a MAJOR problem bc it's a serum, and we MUST apply another moisture over, otherwise it will dry your skin out, rather than retain moisture.
I will consider buying again, by only if Reviva consider changing the formula.

I have combo skin and I adore this serum! Very lightweight, but very hydrating at the same time.

This is the BEST HA serum I have tried. I have used more expensive serums with inferior results. My skin is soft and plump with this without being oily at all! It seems to help heal blemishes and irritation faster as well which is a major plus in my book. I take Nature's Way HA capsules as well and I can tell you it really makes a big difference in your skin. Great product!
UPDATE: While this may be a good serum for some, this is definitely not for me as it has broken me out in terrible painful cystic acne on my cheeks. I'm sure it's this because I tried backing off it for a while and my skin would clear and then as soon as I used it again...boom! So acne prone individuals please beware of this product.

I have combination skin and a little dry in winter. I bought this treatment because of the reviews. I am so disappointed with this product. It makes all my lotions after it cannot be absorbed at all. Definitely won't buy again!
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
I wear mineral makeup and my skin was getting dry from the winter weather, I read the reviews here and decided to give this a try. It is a great product!! One squirt covers my entire face so it's really cost effective. It helps my emu oil work much better. I'll never be without it again!
I LOVE IT!

Very impressed! I have oily and dry skin. This product keeps my face moisturized all day, but not greasy at all.

Excellent hyaluronic acid serum, better than the replenix I have used previously and much cheaper than Skinceuticals B5 serum for the same quality. I use this immediately after washing my face when my skin is still damp (i think this really gets the most benefit out of the serum). I use one pump and mix my powdered L-ascorbic acid into it in my palm to make my own c serum. Once it has soaked in, I just follow with my usual moisturizer. I get really great results with this and find that the moisture in my skin really is boosted all day. Would highly reccomend and continue to repurchase.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Black
my skin looks very nice after putting this on, like it drinks a lot of water. But I do need to add another layer of moisturizer (now is winter time) or else it becomes a little bit dry...
also a very good lip plumper...the effect was so dramatic I got quite scared first time using it :-P

After reading all the positive reviews it seems everyone just uses this for the humectant quality and uses many other products to compensate for what it lacks. I wanted to use this as a moisture base over all of my face and use the reviva dmae alpha lipoic acid lotion for the dry zones on my face. But none of it worked and I was left with blotchy, irritated, and dry skin. To be fair I don't think any of the reviva products irritated my skin, they just didn't help protect my skin from the irritations in the environment(pollution, allergens, etc). I suspect that 97 percent of this product is water. I just recently broke down and spent hundreds of dollars on La Prairie, La Mer, and Skii at Saks...don't ask me exactly how much, lol. But within two days all my skin problems are a thing of the past.
