Ingredients & Research
Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer – A new generation, cross-linked hyaluronic acid, whose water binding ability is several times greater than the already amazing water-binding ability of hyaluronic acid. Also offers longer-term moisturizing benefits.
Sodium Hyaluronate - The most common, salt-form of hyaluronic acid that can be found in larger and smaller molecular weight in the formula.
Tremella Fuciformis (Mushroom) Extract – The extract of silver ear mushroom known for its amazing water-binding abilities. It contains sugar constituents including Glucuronic acid, one of the building blocks of Hyaluronic Acid. It also cosmetically elegant, non-sticky, and has additional antioxidant benefits.
Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid – A smaller molecular weight version of Hyaluronic Acid that is known for its ability to reinforce the skin’s natural defense & healing mechanisms.
Panthenol – A classic skincare ingredient that is a reliable soothing, moisturizing and skin-protecting agent.

The glow combo and lotion made my face break out like I was back in my teenage years. I boiled it down to this serum.
This leaves your skin feeling tacky/sticky if you use more than a few drops, a little goes a very long way. I then switched from adding straight to my skin, into a facial lotion which seemed to help that out a bit.
Will I buy this again? Probably not, but overall it is a good product. Just not for my skin.
Not only it is better than a branded HA that I used previously but it has a lower price tag. I love the thin texture. I use it after spaying my face and neck with Liquid Hydration and it is and feels well hydrated all day long.
Thanks Geek and Gorgeous!
This is the best HA serum I have tried. Leaves skin nourished, fresh, and even plump without any sticky feeling. Love it!
Ce produit est incroyable, un changeur de peau. Hydratation +++.
En revanche, contenant beaucoup trop petit qui me pousse à chercher un acide hyaluronique aussi efficace... Ailleurs. En 100ml, non en 30.
Un flacon me dure 2 semaines, c'est bien trop peu.
Fantastic product that makes my skin look so plumped and souple. I put my day cream on top of it as it’s getting colder!
