I recognize all the faults in this products others have mentioned: it stings a bit, it is gritty and oily at the same time and the smell upon application is not so nice (fake tan?).
However, I have been using it for a couple of months, at night , just before I go to bed (alternating with retin-A): I mix it on the back of my hand with a couple of drops of The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + …

Jan/18/2018

I have used this product every evening for over 1year.
It has improved significantly my skin texture overall and it has been the only product out of many, many I tried, which keeps my cystic hormonal acne under control. My skin is now much smoother and more even, and this may be also helping with some fine lines (harder to judge).
I had some mild reaction when I started using it, as …

I have used HV for a few months, but am not too impressed. The texture is very strange, it spreads unevenly and I don't feel any benefit over my (more comfortable) old moisturizer gel. The pot is also not very friendly to use. Not a bad product per se (no reaction on my sensitive skin), but no must-buy either, there are better options.

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - Hylamide C25 Stabilized Vitamin C Booster

While feeling a bit oily, it absorbs very well with no residue and no piling. I have had some strong skin reactions with vit C before, but not with this (although my skin does heat up slightly upon application). I use it daily, in the morning, after NIOD CAIS and MMHC, but it is the C25 which does seems to help brightening my skin, I am quite happy with it.

Edit: I am even happier …

While it seems to cleanse quite well and I really like its yeast scent and texture, my skin feel a little tight after using it and I suspect that contributes to dryer, duller skin at the end of the day. I very much prefer NIOD's LVCE (although the scent can be off-putting), which leaves my skin clean but so soft.

I am on my 4th bottle, using it twice a day. My skin absorbs this watery serum very well and quickly, no residue. My sensitive skin feels comfortable and somewhat more elastic after application, it definitely contributes to keeping my skin calm, smooth and healthy looking. In the winter I have to add a moisturizer over it, in the summer this is enough.

I am on my 3rd bottle, I use this twice a day. My skin likes this watery serum. It absorbs well and quickly, seems to keep my sensitive skin very calm and healthy looking. I cannot tell that it has had a visible impact on wrinkles, but my skin used to flair up often and this seems to have improved. Texture and tightness may be slowly improving as well, I will continue using it.

Absorbs well, with no residue and no piling even under foundation, and no bad skin reaction. Fits well in my routine, seems to leave my skin smooth and hydrated - I cannot vouch for long-term effects but I am happy with it.
Edit: In the meanwhile, I have been using NIOD MMHC, which I slightly prefer as it feels as if it penetrates deeper - but i may well alternate between both products.

I have sensitive combination skin, with some cystic acne every now and then. I used to rely on foaming cleansers, clay masks, AHA and BHAs treatments, retinols - all oil-free, staying away from any form of oil. But my skin would only get oilier - at some point I had this feeling that I had an ongoing battle with my skin: every day I would treat it more aggressively only to have it producing more …Read more
