BUYER BEWARE – BAD ALCHOHOL IN PRODUCT for SENSITIVE SKIN
I purchased this as a replacement for another bottle of 100% pure Hyaluronic Acid I usually buy from a spa in California. I was hoping to save some money and decided to try this one. Well, I didn’t save any money since I won’t be using this bottle by Timeless Skincare. There are 3 ingredients and the second one on the list is Benzyl Alcohol. It’s used as a preservative in cosmetics but is one of the alcohols you should avoid if you have sensitive skin. Well I do and I know there are a lot of people out there who do as well. If you are prone to break outs from certain products, look at the ingredient lists and you will find one of the alcohols as an irritant (ethyl alcohol — also known as denatured, or SD, alcohol and ethanol — benzyl alcohol, methyl and isopropyl alcohol).I also noticed a difference in how quickly this product seemed to disappear on the skin. I tested it on my hands and compared it w/ the other brand I normally use. The Timeless HLA evaporated much more quickly than my previous HLA. While it slightly improved moisture on my hand, it did not compare to the moisture level from my original HLA. I also tested it out on my face at night. I have dry skin in colder weather and need extra moisture. I topped this w/ a heavy night cream. The next morning, I found a few red itchy spots on my face and my skin felt dryer. The itchiness lasted the whole day and was only helped by extra moisturizing during the day w/ coconut oil. I avoided the use of this HLA product ever since and will not be using it again.SO bottom line, use only if you do NOT have sensitive skin. If you do, you risk the chance of irritation. It offers slight moisture but can also dry out the skin after prolonged use due to the benzyl alcohol.
I have been blessed with fair, oily, acne prone skin, unfortunately. You name it, I’ve tried it – just about every product out there, which, in itself, is not so good for my skin. I just discovered Hyaluronic acid completely by accident. I am impressed!!!I’ve had this really bad breakout on the side of my neck since July, that would just not go away. Since I began using this product, they’re healing and going away. YAY!!!I use it morning and night, and under my Hyaluronic moisturizer. My skin is soft, no longer oily and I have not have any new breakouts (even when my time of the month came).I am becoming a life long customer. I love this stuff.UPDATE: March 2011Still using this and I am still in love with it. Word of caution though… do not use on your lips. I did by accident when I was putting it on my face, and my lips peeled for three days. It wasn’t pleasant.
No Directions, Packaging not professional, Not impressed
I love beauty products. I buy anything that might improve my skin. Based on the reviews of this product I couldn’t wait to try it. I’m a Prime Amazon member, but this product is not Prime. It says free shipping, but it took forever to get it! The longest of anything I’ve ever ordered. Then when I finally got it, there are NO DIRECTIONS!!! Not on the bottle, not in the package, NO DIRECTIONS AT ALL. For all I know, I’m supposed to put it in my coffee every morning. I looked on their website, but no information there. I’ve used it for the last two weeks based on comments I’ve read in reviews on Amazon–not the way I want to learn how to use a product, but my only option at this point. No change to my skin. Plus the bottle came in a clear plastic box with no label. The box was filled w/ paper confetti streamers, like the product was packaged at Party City. This product was a waste of my money and a waste of my time. It’s rare that I post a bad review, but I feel this is worthy information to consider before making a purchase.
Beautiful packaged, feels amazing on skin!
Updated after several weeks of daily use — this product is amazing! I immediately fell in love with from the very first use! It came beautifully and securely packaged. The 2 oz is a very generous size. I use approximately four drops on my entire face. It left my very sensitive skin soft and smooth. One of my kids had to try it after feeling how soft my face was! I use it after cleansing and before the lotion I use and in the morning. I wake up with my skin looking refreshed, even if I still tired. The mineral makeup I use goes on so smoothly afterwards, my skin looks amazing. It has caused no breakouts. I cannot recommend this enough, and I am a picky person when it comes to skin care products!
ONLY 1% H.A.
I have been using this for over a month and it is not a good moisturizer. I have been reading great things online about this type of acid for moisturizing, but I bought this because I was fooled into thinking that it was actually 100% pure (which is what the bottle totally leads you to believe until you read the fine print). 1% is just not enough, this bottle is all water.
it is what it is
really cant review this… it is what it is… but i like the bottle… i like the whiteness… kinda hospital looking…
this is a must to have
I have spent sooo much money on facial products i cant believe it. but finally i found this and i dont need anything else for every day use. my skin has started to heal and get rid of the lines and sagging. this is a must to try. it takes a few weeks to see the difference but there is a big differce in my skin and i am over 65. I also use dr denese facial pads every other day. this product i use twice a day on clean skin before makeup.
At age 50 I was just starting to get the beginnings of fine lines around my mouth and eyes. After three days of using this serum I can barely notice those little unwelcome signs of aging. I will definitely buy this again. I really feel my face is getting back alot of the youthful glow that I had lost over the last couple of years. I put a couple drops of this in my moisturizer and apply that to my face after using my clarisonic brush. Then I use a couple drops of the undiluted serum directly on my little line areas and it really plumps up your skin making lines LOTS less noticeable. This is a wonderful addition to my skin routine. Oh, and I put a little dab along the top edge of my upper lip and I swear it makes my lips look fuller and younger. I love this stuff. I can’t wait to see how my skin looks after a couple months of using my new serum. Aside from my clarisonic, this has given me the most improvement over all other skin products I’ve tried.
simple i feel stolen
because was not good like they said so they are stole my money it makes my skin sick i had to go to a dermatologist so the price i a paid was the most expensive customers do something with this money factory cause they only wants to sell ando dont answer
Gave Bad Bumps
I don’t really know what this was supposed to do for my skin… i thought it might get rid of the dryness and cracks i got around my nose from years of using the neti pot… but the only thing this stuff did is give me really bad EXTRA milia bumps i was trying to get rid of on top of the dryness… i had milia bumps on my cheeks for about 5 months straight that i had finally gotten down after using other stuff on amazon i bought… and after putting this stuff on my skin and jojoba oil on top like someone on here said i just broke out in really bad tiny bumps… both times i used it… the first time i didnt use a moisturizer and the second time i did… both times i got the bad bumps… which are hard as hell to get rid of.. my skins real sensitive so def dont use if you’ve got sensitive skin too
I’m so ignorant
I still don’t know why I bought this. I am also still unsure as when to use it? Someone tell me…. It’s just sitting in my drawer. I know I was supposed to use it in conjunction with my needler…. But when, how?
This product is like dropping water on my face, every drop runs right down my cheek. I can’t believe it has so many great reviews. I would give it a zero.
This is interesting stuff….
It feels almost like, just water. I’m not completely sold yet but it has a somewhat plumping affect around my eye area. Consistancy of baby oil but no oil at all Sits on your skin until you push it in, its fun to play around with for sure. I’d definitely mix with a moisturizer for best results. It was a good bargain. I’m fascinated with this movement so I’ll post more later if I notice any issues or extreme improvement.Add: I put it on my cuticles, my face, a recent burn, it’s kind of ‘eh’ – I don’t think this is a dramatic product but I love how it feels on my skin. It’s like ‘clean’ saliva. haha! I know that sounds weird. It’s not that dramatic and I felt it was worth the price. I am going to give some to my mom to try out, she’s got more aging issues than I do so far….
I was very pleased with the amount for the price. I have just stated using, in my hair, under eye before I apply my creams, on my skin after shower when skin is still dewey wet, then put lotion over. This makes your legs look great 🙂
The first day after I started this serum I was astonished to see that my old acne blemishes had faded considerably and my newer ones had diminished. And when I touched my face I noticed that it didn’t feel oily at all (as it has been feeling since the warmer weather started). It felt moist and soft. I love that!My skin looks clearer and smoother. I am so glad I tried this stuff. Two drops under moisturizer and it does wonders.Update 5/27/11: I noticed this morning that my skin looked so much clearer. My old acne scars had lightened dramatically. It might have been a cumulative effect of using the serum or also that I used my Clarisonic brush last night and that helped the serum to penetrate even deeper. Either way, I am so happy. I was using a scar therapy treatment that didn’t have this effect. I abandoned that for a time because it got to be so tedious and time-consuming. But this is so easy and it works even better. I am in love with the results!
Ok so I have done years of research. Purchased over a hundred books. I know everything about hair skin nails etc. This is the seller to buy your hyaluronic acid from. It comes in fast and the product is perfection. After I wash face with a special soap. I put this on my face neck chest arms and legs. I let it sit for 5 min and then add on the rest of my morning/nightly products. It works. Its a great price to and a little goes a long long way!!!!!! I could not be happier. My Mother uses it as well. We noticed our skin became more smooth and supple when we added this. We use Retin-A and Retinol and this lets everything sink in and seal in faster. Plus it just tightens everything up and makes your skin glow under your make up. It has not clogged any pores or made anything feel greasy. I use this when I do my chemical peels and dermabrasion. It helps to heal faster and keeps moisture in. After I shower and dry brush my legs I put this on and 15 min later I put on pure organic coconut oil. Talk about soft skin! I also do chemical peels on my legs and this helps so so much. Its just great and this seller gets it to you in a flash. I tried a few other brands and for some reason this one is better. Maybe its all in my mind but this company just seems way better.
Don’t Believe the Hype!
I am 41 years old and have some fine lines on my face. I have very pale combination skin. I clean my face with a salicylic acid astringent every morning. This helps tame the oily parts, keep me from breaking out, and exfoliates the dry parts. Of course then my whole skin is dry so I need to use a moisturizer and sunscreen over that normally. I use Neutrogena moisturizer and sunscreen which is the only product that wont clog my pores and helps even out the combo skin throughout the day. My cheeks tend to be a little dry, even after the moisturizing so I thought this product would be good for that, since so many reviews seem to have success with using it to help the skin retain moisture. I saw at least one review on here saying that the product is as gentle to the skin as water and that’s true. It feels slightly thick but it goes on and feels just like water. It moistens the skin like water, and then quickly dries up like pure water, leaving behind… nothing! Nothing but very dry feeling skin, just as if you were to apply nothing but pure water to your face. So, I applied the moisturizer on top of that. I also did the same thing at night. I’ve been doing this for several weeks now, just hoping to see anything improve, and I haven’t noticed ANY changes. Cheeks still a tad dry just like they were, no difference in pore size, fine lines all still there, skin tone unchanged. I feel like I have totally wasted my money and my time buying snake oil. Very disappointed.
This product is fantastic. I just spent some time reading the 1 star reviews and have to chuckle a little bit. I understand the product doesn’t come with instructions but hey people, there’s the internet and your own intuition. It’s a humectant so it binds whatever moisture is already on your skin to your skin. If there’s no moisture, it will be drying. I do have a dry spot on my cheek from using this but I know it’s because I have to incorporate a better moisterizer than the oil free tinted cream I’m currently using in the now subzero temperatures of winter. Skin is variable per age, per skin type per climate. You have to spend some time working with the amount you will need and which products it will mix well with. That aside, my skin does look so good right now. It’s so much smoother and firmer and just appears healthier. So many skin products carry this ingredient but at a very inflated price. You buy this and you are essentially saying “I’ll play chemist on my face”.. But it’s not rocket science. Mix this stuff with your favorite moisterizer if your skin is dry or you live in a cold dry climate. When the humidity levels rise you will need less moisterizer. I used to buy clinique’s moisture surge gel which lists this stuff as an ingredient but at the 50 dollar price a tub I couldn’t swing it more than twice a year. This product is amazing and I will be buying again! thanks!
Meh. I see no difference.
This “serum” is very watery. It is the consistency of… sugar water? Slightly thicker than water, but it is definitely not the consistency of what one might imagine a serum to be.Honestly, I think glycerine would prove to be a better/cheaper alternative to Hyaluronic Acid serums. I would love someone to prove me different, but I haven’t seen any results for my dry skin even when I pair it with other moisturizers. Supposedly, this is supposed to “grab” onto moisture, but I think it’s BS. However, I try to remember that all skin types vary!
Original Hyalaronic Acid Serum 100%
I wanted to love this, but so far it’s just okay. I don’t know if I’m not applying it well, or what the issue is with me. It doesn’t hurt my skins, but it hasn’t hurt it either. More or less meh….
Is it 100%
I doubt that this product is the real thing for the cost and texture. pure serum is thicker. what bothered me was no product description on the bottle….I believe in needs a carrier.
Great Product without Prescription, but…
Great product without prescription, but be careful not to leave it too long on your face. I used Q-tips and leave it on for a minute and wash off immediately with cold water several times. Don’t leave on too long or else face will be red and painful. This is too acidic.
wow. . .
Ok, so I decided to do a glycolic peel and I read this stuff is really good for your skin after a peel, so I ordered it. After I did my peel I used it and my skin felt so refreshed, like it was moisturized but not greasy. A few days after my peel I started to mix this with my alpha hydroxy face lotion and my skin is simply radiant– it’s soft, the like fine lines just smoothed right out. . .I don’t really have any wrinkling (I’m 47)but this makes my skin feel like a baby’s bottom! GOOD STUFF.
Did no harm
Two stars for not causing any damage but not doing anything useful, either. Whatever it did at a cellular level didn’t show up anywhere I could see it. This was my opinion of a few products I tried over the last year or so.
Soft, Dewy, and Moisturized
This serum works. Period.I mix a few drops with my am-lactin moisturizer at night and i wake up with moisturized smooth skin.I also use it in my hand lotion in the winter.No scent, not greasy, rubs in well, blends well with other moisturizers…It’s GREAT.
I was very skeptical about using this product as it arrive in a clear plastic box with confetti. It struck me as a home made concoction and there was no information on the label regarding use. I used this on my face for two months and saw no results at all. It has no smell, and actually I began to question the quality given the packaging and the fact its unregulated and sold on Amazon. I threw it out after thinking about it more.
Food for my hair, not my face.
Here’s the positive side first:I am giving this product 4 stars because I use it in my very dry hair and it’s wonderful. I smooth half a dropper of it in damp hair and then style as usual. It has actually improved the texture of my hair. I have also found it’s good for patches of dry skin.Now the negative:When I first got this I was excited to have something to improve the appearance of the skin on my face. I have acne scars, redness and my skin is very oily. The serum made me break out in small whiteheads literally all over my entire face. The first time I thought maybe it was something else making me break out, but every time I use it since then the same thing happens, so I know it’s this serum for sure. I would not recommend this for people with oily, acne prone skin.It’s a fantastic moisturizer though. If you bought this and you have oily skin and find that you can’t use it, try it in your hair instead.
Like it and good price
So far so good and you can’t beat the price. My skin looks better and more plumped up. I wish it was a bit thicker though, but I still like it.
I love the way it goes on, doesn’t leave my skin tacky like some products do. I just began using it so I can’t tell if it works.
am I doing something wrong?
I received this product 4 days ago & have been using it morning & night. I apply it on a clean , wet face, let it absorb, &then put on moisturizer. By morning my face does feel soft, but by afternoon it just feels dry & almost itchy sometimes. Am I doing something wrong? There is no rash or anything visible, it just feels dry! I will continue to use it…perhaps it takes longer? If anyone has any ideas please let me know!! My skin has never been sensitive so that’s not the problem. Hoping this works out! Will post later after using it for a few weeks……I have also tried mixing it with my moisturizer with the same results. 🙁
