Although I follow a great winter skincare routine with products that target skin woes day and night, this spring I have found it a little harder to shake off the dehydrated areas which dominate my forehead and cheeks. Always eager to try anything that promises to rehydrate and repair my skin, I've been putting Hylamide Low-Molecular HA Booster* to the test. Is this hydrating serum powerful enough to make my skin happy and healthy again?

A review of the Hylamide Low-Molecular HA Booster

Formulated as a thirst-quenching serum which targets dehydrated skin on the surface of the skin as well as below, it promises to boost skin's hydration levels, giving skin a more plump and youthful look. If you suffer from dry skin, this serum is designed for you, as well as being alcohol, silicone and nut free, cruelty-free and vegan-friendly, so suitable for a huge range of people with more specific concerns when it comes to skincare.

Formulated with a low does of molecular hyaluronic acid (HA), it works to target lower layers of your skin encouraging hydration and overall boosting skins performance, helping it to better absorb your skincare products. There's also a hyaluronic pre-curser and plant hyaluronic acid, which work to both boost hydration, giving skin a more plump and youthful look and feel, whilst improving skin elasticity.

It's suitable for use both morning and night and as with any skincare product, prolonged use will see more consistent results. After a few uses I wasn't convinced this serum was going to benefit my skin, but after using it consistently both morning and night for 6 weeks now, I do see a difference in how hydrated my skin feels and overall, it has helped to banish much of the dry and dehydrated areas I was suffering with, particularly on my cheeks and in the centre of my forehead.

A 30ml bottle costs £18, which is considerably cheaper than Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Facial Serum, a product I think is very comparable in its formula, purpose and benefits to the skin. With twice daily use for 6 weeks, I have just hit the halfway mark, so you'd be looking at around 3 months use per bottle, which isn't too bad considering, working out at £6 a month. I do think Hydraluron, which I first shared way back in 2013 in my Hydraluron, worth the hype? review feature, does leave my skin more hydrated after use, but it's also worth noting I am 5 years older than when I first used Hydraluron, so this could be more down to the aging.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with the benefits Hylamide Low-Molecular HA Booster has given to my skin and the way it has tackled my dehydrated areas. I would repurchase it over Hydraluron, the price difference is enough to entice me into replacing Hydraluron as my go-to hydration boosting serum and I really like the pipette applicator, which I think makes it easier to get the right amount of product for each application. If you're looking for a product that will give your skin a hydration boost, this is definitely one worth adding to your to-try list.
