When it comes to anti-aging skincare, there's no ingredient more popular than hyaluronic acid. The sugar molecule, which naturally occurs in our skin, helps retain moisture giving our skin that firm, full and youthful appearance.
However, hyaluronic acid levels deplete as we age, which means skincare products that feature the super hydrating ingredient can help restore our skin's youthful appearance and reduce visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
Although there are plenty of pricey hyaluronic acid skincare products on the market, there are effective an affordable options, like Joyal Beauty's Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum — which is currently on sale on Amazon Canada.
What is it?
Joyal Beauty's 100 per cent pure botanical Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum is a lightweight skincare face serum that helps reduce and rejuvenate the skin's appearance. This daily serum contains 4 per cent sodium hyaluronate and is designed to penetrate deep layers of the skin, diminishing lines, wrinkles while restoring dull looking skin.
The Los Angeles-based skincare brand's serum is 100 per cent vegan, non-comedogenic (won't clog your pores), alcohol-free and paraben-free.
What others are saying
Joyal Beauty's Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum currently ranks as Amazon's Choice for hyaluronic serum, and has earned a 4.4- star rating based on more than 2,000 customer reviews. Shoppers have called the serum an affordable way to restore skin's overall appearance and even prevent breakouts.
"I've been using this product for a little over a month now and I don't know how to explain how much my skin has changed! My skin is softer, my breakouts are minimal and almost nonexistent. I use to struggle with jawline breakouts and chin breakouts and since using this product I have seen a huge improvement," one Amazon shopper wrote. "The cost is beyond reasonable, I apply it to my skin in the morning and at night after a shower. I leave my skin a bit moist and apply a tiny amount (size of a ten cent coin) and apply it all over my face. I do occasionally apply a lotion afterwards but most days I do not. I'm glad I found this product! Also, I just had a baby... It has helped significantly with postpartum skin dullness and breakouts."
"It blends well into wet skin. It makes my skin very soft after and it's definitely worth adding into the skin regimen," another wrote. "I do need to moisturize afterwards, but my skin is pretty dry so begin with so that's not necessarily the serums fault. I personally haven't tried a hyaluronic acid serum before just a retinol one that I hated, but so far very positive!"
Some customers have noted that the serum can be "watery" and "sticky" but have cautioned users not to apply too much to the skin.
"I find this serum helpful as a step before applying a moisturizer cream," one shopper said in their four star review. "It can be a little sticky if too much is applied and takes some time to absorb but it is a good value and helps."
If you're looking for a product to tackle some of the most common signs of aging, Joyal Beauty's Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum might be a great addition to your skincare routine.
At only $20 a bottle, the serum is an affordable way to moisturize and hydrate the skin without spending hundreds on pricey skincare products.
