Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Serum Review

It's so strange that I haven't yet spoken about one of my favorite skincare products. I mean, I've been using this for several weeks and I'm actually going to be repurchasing it soon - which is a HUGE deal!

The product in question is Hydraluron, a product manufactured by Indeed Laboratories, which is a Canadian-based company.

And this product is so awesome.

What it is, is a serum containing a high amount of hyaluronic acid. For those of you who don't know, hyaluronic acid is a substance that's naturally present in the body, especially in the eyes and the joints. In the joints, it works by acting as a lubricant and cushion.

It's also supposed to be effective as a treatment for mouth sores (when applied to the skin as a gel).

It's good for aging skin, and works by plumping up wrinkles and smile lines and the like. Hydraluron, however, isn't touted as an anti-wrinkle product, but it's supposed to be a moisture booster. Which means that it boosts the efficacy of the moisturizer you use along with it.

It's housed in a plastic white tube with a screw cap. The packaging is simplistic and sleek, and does not leak product. It's also hygienic, and can be travelled with safely.

A single application would require about a pea-sized amount, so a tube will last you a very long time!

Ingredients: Water, Propanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hyrdoxide, Ahnfeltia Concinna Extract, Disodium EDTA 

Ahnfeltia concinna is a red algae, which acts as an emollient, emulsifier/thickner and an antioxidant.

The product itself is a clear gel that applies smoothly and silkily. It almost feels silicone-y in nature, but the ingredients don't have silicones.

It dries down (rather quickly) to a slightly tacky finish that isn't unpleasant. It doesn't leave any cast behind. Since this is a moisture boost, it's not advisable to use this on its own. The best way to use this is on clean skin, followed by a moisturizer.

I use this twice a day, morning and night. Given that I have oily skin, I really wasn't expecting a miracle when I first started using it, but I can definitely see a difference. While my oily skin hasn't magically vanished, this manages to control it a fair bit. Instead of getting oily all over my face, my oiliness is not mostly limited to my t-zone, which is a good for me!

This is a great option, regardless of whether you're oily, normal or dry-skinned. While this is great, remember to use it along with a moisturizer that works for you. It's only as effective as you make it to be!

I'd highly recommend you try this - I'm definitely going to be repurchasing it, and can't wait to use it during summer - because it's a great product, and given it's price (~$25 at drugstores, but you can usually get them on sale) and how long it lasts (~4 months so far for me), it's really worth it.

I don't normally sing praises of skincare because it's rare for me to find something that works, but this is definitely one piece that I won't be without.

  1. I had no idea that hyaluronic acid was in the eyes and joints! I just knew I liked it on my face! Always learning new stuff here.

    1. I remember back in Cell Biology when we were studying this, the structure frustrated me no end, haha.
