While my skin doesn’t always seem dry, especially since I use some pretty heavy duty moisturizers at time and have a pretty strict skincare regime that I stick to, it will pretty much always be a bit dehydrated. Especially on lazy days when I only use a micellar water as a cleanser (even us strict Korean skincare addicts have our bad days).
I noticed a huge difference in my skin when I started using the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue during my holiday to Ethiopia. I think a huge part of that was attributed to it including a lot of hyaluronic acid. Unfortunately, not all of my foundations include the wonder ingredient and we all know that I’m a chronic base switcher-upper anyway.
Earlier this month I was kindly sent a bottle of Hyaluronic Acid Serum from OZ Naturals to review, and it has been a great addition to my (7+ step) skincare routine.
I do have a funny relationship with the word “natural”. I guess it just means too many different things to too many different people, and it’s hard to pinpoint just what is meant when it’s used. Here the case is pretty straight forward. The serum has no alcohol, parabens, sulfates, or mineral oils (It’s also 100% vegan for anyone who cares about that).
If you hadn’t heard of it before, Hyaluronic Acid is essentially a moisture powerhouse for your skin. It can hold up something like 1000x it’s weight in water, basically it promotes your skin’s ability to not only retain moisture but by a lot more than it normally would. This is good not only if you have dehydrated skin like myself ( which is not the same as having dry skin – even those with combination or oily skin types can suffer from it), but also for anti-aging purposes and reducing the look of fine lines.
In addition to the HA, it is also chock full of organic aloe, witch hazel, vitamin C, vitamin E, and jojoba oil. Not that I’m wanting to get a sunburn on my face, but I’m curious to see how well the serum would integrate into my “oh no I’ve baked myself” routine.
Packaging wise, the glass bottle is a lot sturdier than it looks – I’ve already knocked it off the vanity a few times and luckily haven’t had an issue. The dropper is also pretty standard/easy to use. I use about 2-3 drops morning and night, right between my toner and respective moisturizer. The product absorbs pretty quickly, but I still like to let it sink in for a minute before applying my moisturizer.
All in all, I really like the product and will probably repurchase it when needed. Though seeing as you only need a few drops morning and night, the bottle should last me a couple months. Have you guys used any HA serums in your skincare steps?
