What actives are in the formulation?:
The Hydrating Serum is designed to complement your skin’s natural moisture and restore its hyaluronic acid (HA) levels. We use sodium hyaluronate (SH), a smaller molecule than HA, allowing deeper penetration into the skin. HA is a natural component of your skin that keeps it firm and supple by retaining moisture and creating a protective barrier. As we age, natural production of HA diminishes.

✓ Hydrates without clogging pores
✓ Regulates sebum production
✓ Reduces fine lines
✓ Prevents visible signs of aging
✓ Firms skin


Sodium Hyaluronate (SH) : :
Sodium Hyaluronate, a smaller molecular size than hyaluronic acid (making it especially penetrative), is found naturally in the body and is a critical component of skin that helps retain moisture, keeps the skin firm, aids in tissue repair, and helps create a protective barrier against microbes. In the presence of SH, collagen and retinoic acid production is also increased. SH holds moisture very well; holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Not only does SH delivers water to the skin, SH also has the ability to hold it there. As we age, natural production of SH diminishes and our skin is no longer as supple and youthful-looking. Replacing SH is an effective way to make the skin look younger, making it a popular injectable wrinkle filler with dermatologists.

Full Ingredients List:
Aqua, Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol.

Q1. Can I use hydrating serum as a moisturiser?
A1. For oily, acne, combination and normal skin types, you can use hydrating serum solely as a moisturiser. If you have dry skin, you would need to apply a cream or oil-based moisturiser after you have applied hydrating serum as our hydrating serum is oil-free.

Q2. There are so many products in the market now containing sodium hyaluronate or hyaluronic acid. What is the difference between your hydrating serum and these other products?

    Thanks to the effective products (yet fuss-free routine), my moderate acne that has troubled me for the last 3 years has been tamed. It took only 2-3 months and people around me saw the difference. I cannot be more grateful!

    It is light and easily absorb. It’s able to control further acne out outbreak. My husband and teens daughter are using this serum. Their face do look less oily now.

  14. Chong

    I like the texture. It’s easy to apply and is absorbed easily. My skin feels hydrated after applying.

  15. Rachie00

    I’m glad I’ve found this! It was my first time trying this brand! It’s light and easily absorbed into my skin. My skin is quite dry but after applied it I don’t feel much dryness and doesn’t have any smell nor sticky. I hope i will contiune to use this serum and also hope it comes with a bigger bottle too! using the small bottle I could travel anywhere! Next, I would like to try for the 7 in 1 pores refining!

  16. Jo

    Great lightweight hydrator for my dry skin. Also, kudos to the excellent customer service. Two thumbs up!

  17. Phil Seah

    Hydrating serum works well with my skin. I do go for regular facial and each time the beautician will comment that my skin is dry. I have also tried many different high end and low end products in the market. Only when I started applying hydrating serum, I not only save on having to buy a toner and moisturizer separately, I was also complimented by the beauticians that my face is not dry anymore and it has that glow. I also save on eye creams as this leave my eye area moisturised and worry-free as it’s non-oily. P.S. I am 50 years old.

  18. Yvonne

    I’m currently on my third bottle of this. It’s light, non-oily, non-sticky and it feels as if you’re applying 100% water and moisture onto your face. I love that this, along with the cleanser and anti-acne solution, doesn’t have any smell. I have been to many derms for my skin concerns, and I can confidently conclude that these products work as well as those sold by expensive derms.

  19. Kerrin

    After first apply of this hydrating serum and i totally fall in love with it. It is so easy to apply and absorb easily and i am using my third bottle now. Never stick to a hydrator for so long.

  20. Wei Fen

    This hydrating serum is very light in texture and absorbs quickly without any sticky residue like other Hyaluronic acid products in the market. However I find that this alone was not enough to alleviate the dryness from the Anti-acne serum as the latter made my skin dry out quite a lot. For those with very dry skin, will probably need to top this up with another moisturizer.

  21. Min Min

    I have been using this for close to a month now. Totally love how one tiny drop can apply to a pretty big area. Also, it doesn’t feel greasy and oily like most moisturizers do. My skin feels less oily nowadays as well!

  22. Lai Kuan

    I have been looking for a affordable hydrator and skinlycious hydrating serum leaves my skin moisturised without any oily feeling. I like it!

  23. Joanna Chua

    Hydrator serum leaves my face moisturised with no feeling of dryness. No clogging of pores too.

  24. Jacquelyn Goh

    The hydrating serum is an easily absorbed moisturiser that does not clog my pores. Reduction of fine lines have been seen since I started using it all over my face and neck. It comes in an easy-to-use pump that minimise wastage and no contamination. It’s very affordable too!

  25. Her Ching

    I am Jasmine’s, the founder of Skinlycious, good friend. I was looking for a suitable moisturiser for my combination skin but couldn’t find one even though I tried many brands. When Jasmine told me about the hydrator from her doctor, I tried it, love it, and used it for almost 2 years. After Jasmine started Skinlycious, I tried her hydrating serum and I found it to be equally good and actually better as it absorbs faster into the skin. The best part is that Skinlycious hydrator serum is only 1/3 the price of the doctor’s.

  26. Rebecca Chan

    The hydrating serum makes my skin feel supple and nourished without the oily greasy feeling. It’s so safe and doesn’t clog pores. Previously, I tried using all the eye creams from top brands but none is as good as this. The best part is it only costs a fraction of the top brands! It helps reduce fine lines around my eyes with just 2 weeks of usage.

  27. Shing Lee

    I like the texture of hydrating serum as it is light and absorbs quickly into my skin. It’s hydrating too.

  28. Winnie

    I was using SKII originally but felt that it was a bit drying. I brought the hydrator serum and applied it before I apply SKII. It’s been two weeks since I started adding hydrator serum into my regime. Now, my skin is hydrated and no more dry feeling. I feel that my skin is softer and more supple. Love it.
