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.

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.

Q1. Can I use hydrating serum as a moisturiser?

    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!

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. Shing Lee

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

  5. 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.
