This post features one of the most hyped serum for a while. Does it live up to the hype? I bought it during the black friday sale last November. I have to say that this is the most effective serum that I have ever tried. Yes, the most effective. Not one of …. Would it be something for you?

What is it?
An anti-aging serum (according to the pacakge). It targets skin rehydation and improves textural damage.
How to use it?
Apply to entire face AM and PM after cleansing. This is applied before your moisturizer and after your toner or other serums.
Who is it for?
A friend of mine asks me why she needs an anti-aging serum when she is in her late 20s? Well, I do think that we need to start this so-called anti-aging fight starting from our 20s. Personally speaking, anti-aging is really not a good term. When you say anti-aging, you think “That’s for 50 years old”. This is what marketing has achieved. However, that is not true.
Everything we do in skincare is anti-aging. When you cleanse your skin properly, that is anti-aging; when you exfoliate your skin using acid toner or exfoliating mask, that is anti-aging; when you moisturize your skin, that is anti-aging. When you apply sunscreen everyday, that is anti-aging.
I am a strong believer that skin care products can help you prevent or delay having wrinkles or losing hydration. It would not help you much when the deep wrinkles are there. Only cosmetic surgeries can do that. So we should prevent the wrinkles before they land on our face 😉 .
Furthermore, this is not just a product that targets at wrinkles, it also aims at improving skin texture and restoring skin hydration. So I think this is a product for anyone that has certain level of skin dehydration or want to improve skin texture. So almost everyone. If you are on a budget for skincare, this serum is definitely what you need. I definitely did not receive any sponsor fees from hylamide !!! I just LOVE this product.
What does the product claim?
A highly active concentrate of advanced hyaluronic complexes, next-generation peptides and biotechnological technologies to target rehydration on and below skin surface, while visibly improving lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and textural damage.
Does the product live up to its claim?
For the majority part of the claims, yes. I have a great experience using this product. After about 5 days, my skin tone and texture has started to improve. In such cold and windy month in Amsterdam, I do not feel any dehydration after using this product. After using this product consistently for 1 and half month, my skin texture has improved significantly.
I do not think that this product has helped regarding my deep wrinkles on my forehead. However, nothing, I guess, can remove such wrinkles 🙂
What I don’t like about it?
Not much. I read it online that some people seem to have problems with the dropper package. I, personally, don’t have such problem. The texture of the product is not very liquid or too runny. So the dropper is not an issue.
I bought the same series eye serum (Hylamide SubQ Eyes) last June and find the dropper very irritating which makes the product difficult to apply. However, the new eye serum that I repurchased last November does not have this problem at all. They definitely mprove the package for the eye serum in this range. I am not sure whether this applies to this face serum. If you plan to purchase this serum now, package should no longer be your concern.
Causes of allergy or concern?
This product is fragrance and paraben free. If you are concerned about skin irritation, this product should spare you from those problems.
36 euros, amazing price quality ratio.
Where to buy?
The hylamide range does not seem to be present in any brick-and-mortar retailer. You can buy the product range online at their website hylamide.com. They offer free worldwide delivery. So no matter where you are, you are just a click away.
