It contains hyaluronic acid so it makes sense...
When it comes to moisturizing your skin, it can be challenging to achieve the perfect balance between hydrated and greasy. To the rescue: hyaluronic acid serums. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful skincare ingredient that can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, meaning it blasts even the most dehydrated complexions with moisture.
Don’t let the word ‘acid’ put you off though – because unlike traditional acids (like glycolic or lactic), hyaluronic has more of a gel-like texture and doesn’t slough away dead skin cells or have the ability to cause sensitivity or irritation. For this reason, serums that contain hyaluronic acid are pretty much ideal for anyone with a face.
But despite being a miracle-worker, hyaluronic acid could end up drying out your skin if you’re not using the right formula. Cue L’Oreal Paris and it's cult Revitalift Filler 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum. It’s so well-loved that one bottle currently sells every minute in America, and in part, that’s thanks to the formula.
What makes it SO sought after? Asides from the fact it is one one of the most hydrating serums money can buy, it only takes one day to see the results from this fast-acting serum—you can expect more supple skin, and in a week plumper skin, thanks to the 1.5% pure hyaluronic acid doing its job. Most 'affordable' serums are formulated with just one type of hyaluronic acid, but this one is made up of two types for maximum efficacy. The super-concentrated formula is a gel that absorbs fast, leaving nothing behind except for bouncier skin. It’s designed to hydrate while filling out fine lines and wrinkles.
Suitable to use both morning and night, it’s also worth knowing that hyaluronic acid is a humectant, meaning it draws moisture from its surroundings so it’s always best applied straight after cleansing onto damp skin – otherwise it could end up drying your skin out more and nobody wants that.
And yes, before you ask, it's available here in Ireland, too. It's €21.99 and available at Boots.
