This is a good little serum (more like a lotion, really) and works well as a light but quite hydrating layer. If you're the layering sort, it's a good choice to use under makeup. It leaves my skin feeling soft, velvety and nourished and has lately been my go-to when I don't quite want to deal with a heavier moisturizer.FYI, I find that while my skin is generally on the normal side of things, if I didn't keep it well-hydrated, it would definitely be on the dry side. More specifically, I think it's more accurate to describe it as prone to being "dehydrated" (meaning, fine lines sometimes appear, that can then be plumped up/minimized with an appropriate moisturizer), rather than straight up dry (patchy, dry flakes), if that makes sense. As such, I've noticed that it really drinks up products containing hyaluronic acid but is less responsive to skin oils (which I like anyway, and use periodically on top of stuff like this in the evening when the mood strikes).This would be a five-lippie product for me were it not for the smell, which is kind of a musty, off-putting, vaguely floral scent with a little bit of peach or apricot thrown in (hard to describe, but if you've ever used Derma E products, you'll find that it has the same scent as many of their other products. Alas, it's a smell that lands it squarely into the "pantyliner" family of scents).PROS:-Relatively inexpensive-Lightweight and good for layering under other products-Good for hydrating dehydrated skinCONS:-ScentI'll probably repurchase, but still try other similar products. Also, at least in the Bay Area, while the Derma E line is pretty easy to find in stores, most only carry a small subset of the full line, so this can be hard to find.

I found out about hyaluronic acid a few years ago and found that it's the best moisturizer for me, softens fine lines and minimizes the pores. I mostly use the Japanese brands like Hada Lobo. I found Derma E and gave it a try because in general I have more confidence in US made products. Alas, it did not hydrate at all. It made my skin drying even. Will not buy it again.

PROS: This feels wonderfully nourishing going on. Remember this is not a moisturizer. If you want a moisturizer on top of this, you still need to use a separate moisturizer. The price is right, especially if you get it somewhere like Vitacost. Paraben free. It has a smell that is from the Plumeria blossom. When I saw that in the reviews, I thought I would hate the product. The scent is somehow quite tolerable (and perhaps even enjoyable). That really surprised me because I normally hate floral scents, even in perfume. But it's mild and soft and fades very fast. Sort of plumps my skin up (as much as a product can) and helps with wrinkles. But I also use other moisturizer. I like to use this when I already get enough moisture from my spf lotion in the morning. But it would be great for someone who doesn't want a heavy cream but still wants to control flakes/dryness. Natural ingredients. Doesn't bother my sensitive skin.CONS: As someone mentioned, it probably should not be in a clear container if it contains Vitamin C, which it does. But I don't keep my bottle near the sunlight, anyway. I think the cones in this might be clogging me.ALTERNATES: I like the night cream version of this. PURCHASING TIPS: I can get this cheaper through places like Vitacost.com

This is my hg moisturizer. I use this morning and night. My skin is generally oily with a few drier patches and this adds the perfect amount of moisture and really softens. The texture is more of a light lotion but I love how easily this glides over your skin and really sinks in. There's a slight fragrance, almost floral, but it's very faint and fades within minutes. This is the best moisturizer I've found for oily/combo skin that actually makes any difference in the appearance and feel of my skin.

This is a perfect hydrating lotion for my combo skin. I use this about 3 times a week at night and it has been wonderful. It really absorbs, leaves my skin moisturized and it smells so good! Love the pump better than the jars that are used for their other products though.

This was OK. I prefer serums that are more liquid than lotion and unfortunately this was more of a lotion which meant that it didn't completely absorb and sat on the surface of my skin a little, which I felt interfered with the products used after the serum. It was also slightly sticky although not enough to be a real issue. Overall, it sunk in and moisturised well enough, but my skin didn't feel as plumped up as I expected it to be after having read so much about hyaluronic acid's benefits. Unfortunately, after finishing the bottle, I didn't see or feel any lasting effect on my skin. Good value for money though.PS I'm assuming this product is different to the existing reviews for Derma E's Hyaluronic Firming Acid Serum as the ingredients list is different.Ingredients: Water (aqua), Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Calcium Ascorbate (Ester-C), Allantoin, Panthenol, Alanine, Leucine, Tyrosine, Dimethicone, Glycine, Valine, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer (Aristoflex), Ceteareth 20, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Potassium Sorbate, Natural and Fragrant Oils.

I purchased this after using a glycolic that made my face turn beet red and super dry. I was drawn to the ingredients which included at the top of the list glycerin, sodium hyaluronate (the salt form of hyaluronic acid), and vitamin C. Overall I really like this stuff. It's marketed as a serum but because it's water based it feels more like an ultra light moisturizer than a serum. I would say this isn't something that would work miracles as a stand alone but does pair nicely with a moisturizer if you're looking for extra hydration. The one thing I don't like is the clear packaging since it contains vitamin C and needs to be kept away from light. If someone had severely oily skin I could see how this would work well as a stand alone light moisturizer. I will definitely purchase this again if I continue to have dry skin.

I've been using this for a month and like it so far. The pump dispenses just the right amt for my face. It is quickly absorbed and doesn't feel greasy. Like the smell too. After using it for 2 week, I could see the effect, skins feels smoother and more pumped up.But I would monitor for a while as sadly, most products I have used in the past always seem to lose its magical effects after a while (maybe its psychological). For the moment, my verdict is Yes I will buy it again. Edited 10 June 2010. It's been 2 months since I used this. Still liking it so yes, I will buy it again definitely. :-)

Although the price was dirt cheap on vitacost.com, I'm on the fence about buying it again. The pump works great but be careful the first time you use it, otherwise you'll get it all over the counter. 1-2 pumps is enough to cover my face and neck. This is the last thing I put on during my nighttime routine. Since I have oily skin, I've only used this product during the fall-winter seasons when my skin tends to become a bit dry. I've read that gels/serums are great for oily skin and cremes are good for dry skin. I like the fact Derma E doesn't use parabens of any kind. I'm just wondering if there is something else out there that I can use during all seasons.

I was excited to try this natural line and I purchased this on iherb.com (very good website btw) along with the 1) DMAE-Alpha Lipoic C ester Creme and 2) Ester C Serum. This product was the least offensive of the 3.The texture of this product was fine (unlike the disgusting goopy, home brewish texture of the vitamin C creme and serum) and I always like a sanitary pump application but I found this product absolutely INEFFECTIVE. My skin did not feel any extra moisture after using this so I promptly returned this.The only effective Hyaluronic Acid Product I have found is from Cosmedicine. Cosmedicine uses a patented Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer (holds 4,000 - 5,000x its own weight in water) vs. Hyaluronic Acid which (supposedly) retains up to 1,000 times its weight in water. I have tried a variety of Hyaluronic acid products and I found none of them showing any improvement in my dry skin except for Cosmedicine's products (Private Nurse to be specific).I am Korean, 43 years old. I have combination skin (dry in winter, slightly oily in summer however very prone to plugged pores and occasional breakouts). I use: Natura Bisse, Perricone MD, Jurlique, Jan Marini, Cosmedicine, DHC Olive Oil Cleanser, and MD Forte Cleanser II & III.
