Hylamide Low-Molecular serum – review

Over last few years Hyaluronic Acid has probably been the most desired ingredient in skincare, especially for dry skin. It’s been added to vast majority of skincare products that target dry skin and to nearly all anti-ageing serums and creams. It is an ingredient that naturally exists in our body, a lot of it is in our skin. It binds to water and gives our skin moisture and plumpness. When we’re young we have a lot of it and as the ageing process starts in our body we loose hyaluronic acid. That’s why our skin loses plumpness and usually become more dry with age.

Hyaluronic Acid was discovered as a Holy Grail in skincare and it was (and still is) extensively researched as a cosmetic ingredient but it’s also used in cosmetic procedures.

There are a few forms of that substance and the most basic form of Hyaluronic Acid (which is widely used in skincare products) has a bit too big molecule to penetrate deep enough in the skin. As a results it sits on external layers of the skin. Hylamide Low Molecule contains five forms of Hyaluronic Acid with a small enough molecule that can actually penetrate deeper in the skin and bring moisture to deeper layers.  That is something that is very much needed for long term results.

The product itself is a very watery serum in quite basic glass bottle with dropper. It should be used on a serum stage, which is after cleansing and before moisturiser. It’s very quick and easy to use and absorbs immediately.

It’s one of these products, that when you apply it, you feel a relief. It brings moisture immediately, but using it regularly every day a long term results are quite quickly noticeable. I’m not talking about huge anti-ageing properties, as I can’t say much in that matter (yet), but it definitely helped my skin manage constant dehydration.

I had a bit of proof of that a few weeks ago, when I popped in to a Dior counter and was offered colour matching of a new foundation. Lady had one of these devices that measure various parameters of the skin and my moisture level turned out pretty good. I was very happy about it.

The serum is clear and smells a bit weird, but it goes off within few seconds and doesn’t bother me at all. My only negative comment could be about packaging, as this pipette is quite large and the product leaks very easily and gets a bit messy. Nevertheless it’s a fantastic product for dry and dehydrated skin.  It’s not very complex serum as it hasn’t got a big variety of ingredients added, that can have various effects on the skin. It’s major purpose is to bring back the moisture to the skin. If that’s your major concern, then that’s the product for you. It’s also fairly inexpensive (as for serum), as it’s sold for £18 in Boots. Considering the quality of the product it’s not a big price tag, I think.

    This is a must for dehydrated skin, so true! I have only tried “Hydraluron” from the same range, is a gel-cream that I use like a serum, in the morning before applying moisturizer. I love it and would recommend it to you as it’s probably more practical than the bottle with the pipette.
