I had heard so many positive review on this pre - moisturizer and wanted to give it a go. Whilst I do believe that using hylauranic acid before serums or moisturizing does work to aid in absorption and hydration, this product wasn't 'all that' for me. For a mid to high priced hylauranic acid product, the packaging was sh*tty and it would have been much nicer in a pump dispenser as it seems to ooze out of tube too easily. Overall, I think there are much cheaper/similar options available on amazon or even ebay if all you're looking for is a straight up hylauranic acid product with no other active ingredients.

I'm very disappointed with this product, I don't see why it has so many positive reviews over the internet. I bought it to help my dehydrated skin which is combination too, so it's oily on Tzone, prone to clogging and dry too. I read many articles and seen reviews of this as a miracle product which boosts hydration.... Did nothing to me :( Why is my skin different then others? why isn't it plumped after using it? it does literally nothing. I use it morning and night after toner and under moisturizer, for around 3 weeks now, my skin feels dry during the day anyway and in the morning it's flaky and not plumped at all. It's like if I expected a lot but no, I only hoped to not have my skin so tight and unfomfortable all the time.
For the price I expected something more then nothing...

I must be the only one who doesn't like this product, as there are so many glowing reviews from bloggers like Caroline Hirons and A Model Recommends. While the product didn't give me any reactions, I didn't see any benefits after using it for over a month. While the price is great, I was disappointed with this product overall.

I have acne prone, dehydrated skin which during the summer (humid) months gets very oily. I use this at night under my moisturiser and it really helps plump up my skin. I can tell a difference when I don't use it, as although I don't get flaky dry skin I do get dehydration fine lines around my mouth. In all honesty it's not going to do anything more than help hydrate your skin, so pick a moisturiser with anti-aging benefits like antioxidants and retinol - however it's a great price (especially in Canada). The sheet masks in the same range are exceptional... Even better than this, I'll be writing a review for them very shortly!!!

Great product at reasonable price. It works great for me and I really can see a difference if I use it at night and follow with my moisturizer. In the morning my skin looks plumped, evened out and fresh. All in all great stuff and nothing else before (even much more expensive) made such a difference to the look of my skin. Can I recommend? I can see it doesn't work for some, but it does for me and others so it's a toss. I love it.

Add me to the list of people not particularly impressed by this product. I was excited to try it but found it just did not seem to do much. It neither bothered nor benefited my skin. Someone described the texture as similar to "personal lubricant" - this is accurate. LOL! It absorbs fast which is great, allowing you to add moisturiser over the top. You should not wear a hyaluronic acid serum alone - unless you live in a sauna... It attracts moisture to the skin. If you live in a dry climate, it can have the reverse effect of pulling in dryness to your skin - unless you moisturise. Anyway, I think this is overpriced and a decidedly average product. I have since moved on to Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Lotion which is a much better product for me.

Hand to heart, I cannot live without this product. I'm so sad it's not living up to people's expectations! I am on a low dose Accutane regime, and my skin was getting very very dry. Once I started using this serum, my dryness completely disappeared. I use it every day immediately before my moisturizer. I'm on my second tube, and I will purchase again. I get this at Shopper's, the next time it's on sale I'm going to stock up!

I learnt about this product after watching a video from Pixiewoo, the great make-up artists, bloggers and sisters from the UK.

- The price is fantastic and you can find it at many drugstores or beauty shops.
- Packaging is good although sometimes - specially after a flight - the product can go crazy and spill more product than needed.
- The product itself is fantastic and it breaks my heart that is not working for a lot of people. Why do I think is great? It simply helps my oil (Trilogy Rosehip Oil), eye cream (Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Firm) sunscreen (generally La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Anti-Shine or Fluide De La Mer) and moisturiser (I use many depending on my mood!) absorb completely.

I think the trick for me is: right after cleansing my face I spray some rose water (Jourlique Rosewater Balancing Mist) and while the skin is still 'wet' I apply the Hydraluron. AND while the skin is still 'wet' with the rose water and the Hydraluron I apply the oil, eye cream, etc. Please don't wait for the product to dry on your skin to then apply the rest of the products. I would say that is the biggest mistake. How I understand - and how I feel it works - is that the product is design to help the rest of your your products to be absorbed to deeper levels of your skin and maximize their potential.

The days I haven't used Hydraluron my skin (which is combination and tends to be dry) goes oily, very oily. A sign that my skin is thirsty and need some Hydraluron.

I'm under an air conditioned environment everyday for long hours, so I'm a moisture junkie. On my desk I always keep a bottle of Jourlique Rosewater Balancing Mist or The Body Shop Vitamine E Face Mist. But if I don't use Hydraluron all the above is not the same!

Try my trick and give it another go!

PROs: It is easy to find at most drugstores and other shops. Packaging is also good quality

CONs: After watching videos on YouTube from several Vloggers, I gave it a go. It did nothing for my skin. It also means that my sensitive skin didn't react to it either. It made it neither better or worse. It is reasonably priced, however, if it doesn't work, it doesn't work.

I have tried the Hydraluron Mask, and it works better than the tube, however, there are many other masks that work better and provide my skin with much more hydration.

I purchased when a trusted skin blogger with dry skin raved about it. I have combination skin (some dry areas) and thought a serum to help hydrate and plum without being heavy would be a great addition to my skin care routine. Overall I really disliked this product. I tossed this and the skin moisture jelly out after persevering for a month and finding they required that I layer another moisturiser on top in order to avoid uncomfortably tight skin. I placed the jelly on top of serum and oil and it made my skin feel drier than before I added it. This may in fact be a skin dehydrator! I wouldn't repurchase or recommend them.

It didn't moisturise or plump. As compared with a good facial oil and light moisturiser this was a poor option. My skin looked wan and lack lustre and it felt tight in the cheeks. It didn't cause breakouts which is perhaps its one good quality other than price, availability and lovely minimalist packaging brand wide. The sheet masks in the same line however were very nice, they helped with plumping and with an oil and moisturiser on top they were a great way to rehydrate post long-haul flight. The masks because they come with only 4 uses to a pack are in reality far pricier than the serum and moisturise and there are cheaper options that do the same thing. I liked some of the other serums by Indeed but the hydraluron line has been a major disappointment.
