Hyaluronic acid is having it's moment as a highly touted skin care ingredient and there are a number of products on the market that contain it, no doubt for it's effective moisturizing qualities. Hyaluronic acid which also known as hyaluronan is actually a natural structural component of skin that is present in connective tissue throughout the human body. Hyaluronic acid can help your skin retain moisture while simultaneously strengthening it's barrier. A healthy barrier presents as skin that looks and feels softer, smoother, and plumper. So it would make sense that a pure hyaluronic acid serum would yield some impressive skincare results. I tried OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum to see for myself.

My Impressions: I've used this in place of my usual serum for over a week and there is honestly nothing that I don't like about it. The product has a light barely distinguishable scent. The texture of the serum is light with an almost watery consistency that makes it easy to apply. This hyaluronic acid definitely lives up to it's reputation as an effective moisturizer with the added benefits of smoothing and plumping. I like how it sinks in without being greasy and is gentle and suitable for sensitive skin. I had some some irritation on my face one night and this serum actually helped to calm it down. That alone makes this a winner. And it's really affordable as well. I've seen some really expensive hyaluronic acid serums on the market but there's really no need to spend big $$ when there is an affordable product like this that works.
Do you use serums in your skincare? How do they work for you?
