This serum has several hydrating and moisturizing ingredients. It is very light liquid that spreads easily. I used a full bottle and found it moisturizing but nothing more. I wanted a more rounded anti-aging serum so I used other products from the Arcona line.

I didn't think much of this when I first started using this. It was so light that I didn't think it was doing much for my skin. But not wanting to waste it, I continued using it... After close to 3-4 weeks of regular use, I started to see & feel the changes in my skin. My skin is no longer tight in the middle of the day from dryness and my makeup goes on so much for smoothly without dry patches. Arcona did state on its packaging that the effects can be seen over time with continued use and I must say its true!

This is super smoothing and hydrating. This has reduced my skin tightness, And gotten rid of some roughness I have been experiencing from the cleanser I have been using. This would be good under any moisturizer for pretty much any skin type. I have oily acne prone skin and this has not caused any problems for me. I think this would be especially good for those experiencing negative side effects from acne medication.

Best hydrating serum I have used. The high concentration of sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid) as opposed to glycerin makes it work in low humidity - perfect for winter. It takes that dull, tight look my skin can get in the winter away. It reduces fine dehydration lines under my eyes a lot. My skin feels soothed, and looks hydrated and plump. <3 it!

First impression: It smells great. the serum is liquidy and comes out easily. be gentle on the pump or you will get too much product out. it feels light and absorbs right in, won't interfere with further products. I bought it to use in the am. It's perfectly fine for pm as well. I will report back. Right now I am very excited. Update 11/15: it goes up one more lippie in my book! My skin loves this serum. I have been rotating a few different serums and this one is my favorite. it is just right for my normal to dry skin- not too light and not too heavy. My moisturizer works much better over this serum and foudation/powder held up fresh all day.Update 2/18: Still loving it. The pump is splashy so I hold it to my face and apply directly. No more wasted product on the mirror or sink. :) This is a great everyday serum that I wish it came in a bigger sized bottle so it last longer. I got so excited when I saw that nordstrom.com sells a 4Oz bottle...but I think they make a mistake.

I hate to bum on this product, but I tried to use it around my eyes and my skin could not tolerate it for some reason. It made me very itchy and irritated. I have the hardest time using anything around my eye area though! I am using the rest of the bottle on my neck and I have no problem with it there, but I can't really tell if it is doing anything one way or another. Won't buy it again.

I hate to be the lone dissenter here, but this serum did nothing for me. My skin is normally on the dry side and gets worse in cold weather. I saw the reviews and thought this might be a winner for me. It's a lovely serum--not greasy or slick or plastic-y feeling, and it has a light honey smell that is not at all offensive and dissipates quickly. It's also reasonably priced ($36/1 oz, and a little goes a long way). However, I saw no change at all in the moisture level of my skin, immediate or cumulative, whether used alone or under another moisturizer. Luckily I bought it from a site that takes returns, so it's going back.

UPDATE (11/14/11) Well, it's a year later and time for an update and a downgrade unfortunately. I stopped using this last Spring and only just started up again since it's gotten so dry this Fall. This time around I noticed some very small blistery bumps. Not sure how I missed those a year ago. Love the ingredients.....except for the "essential oils". Not sure what the culprit(s) could be. ORIGINAL REVIEW: Freakin' fabulous! Been using since 8/4/10 mostly just around my eye area and on my neck. I did test drive it full-face but it was just a bit too rich (some minor clogging) but then again, it doesn't take much to clog my skin. For full-face hydration, I'm sticking to my beloved Magic White Ice. This serum, however, is still a keeper. A side note: I've noticed my lower lashes are thicker and more lush....probably due to the honey extract.

I've been searching for a product that is everything i wanted and I finally found it! I realized that traditional moisturizers were much to heavy for my oily, congested skin, so i decided to switch to a gel formulation since my skin did still need hydration as well as something for my MMU to stick to. I tried a lot of products looking for something very natural. I thought i could get away with using aloe vera, but i found that it didn't hydrate well enough and my makeup just wouldn't stick to it. I tried a couple other options, but none of them worked...they were all to light or too heavy and sticky. This one is perfect! My skin is baby soft when i use it, no irritation whatsoever, looks beautiful under MMU and is as natural as they come. It should be used within 6 months (this is because it isn't filled with nasty chemical preservatives) but in a 1 oz volume I think most people would have no problem using it up in that amount of time. I am very happy and will continue to repurchace.
