OZ Naturals 5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum!
5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum -Another fabulous beauty find, OZ’s Hyaluronic Serum acts to plump up and hydrate your skin while stimulating collagen in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Again, something I need in abundance. First you put on the serum and allow it to dry before putting your moisturizer on top of it.
Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C serum that deeply hydrates and plumps the skin to reduce wrinkles. In addition to the Hyaluronic acid (a super hydrating naturally occurring acid botanically derived from Cassia Angustifolia seed) and Vitamin C, it contains nourishing ingredients like aloe, green tea and Vitamin E to repair and soften skin cells. After the 20% Vitamin C serum has dried, apply dabs of product to the driest, wrinkle-prone areas of your face (like the forehead or around the mouth). This serum smells amazing because it’s scented with geranium essential oil. It also has a distinctly aloe-y consistency when spread on the face; very light and yet slightly viscous or sticky. That sticky sensation dissipates after a minute or two of drying.
The serum is a lovely consistency; liquidity enough that it's easy to apply and move around your face but gel enough that it doesn't run all over the place before you've had a chance to apply it. It has a very slight scent, but it's really pleasant; I detect rose which is a smell I'm always happy to have in my beauty products but I know there are just as many people who hate the smell as there are that love it. You have to work with it very quickly because as soon as it comes into contact with your skin it sinks in, something that I love about it, it makes my skin care routine very fast.
Firstly I cleanse and tone my face as usual, then I apply the serum. As soon as it's been applied there is no residue on the skin at all, within a couple of seconds it's completely disappeared and you're ready for your moisturiser. I use this all over my face, even up to my lash line on my eyes, and it doesn't sting or affect my sensitive eyes in any way, it even helps my eye cream to not effect them, something I really wasn't expecting.
Oz Naturals claim that the serum:
Plumps and hydrated dry, dull skin
Assists in balancing skin moisture levels
Diminishes surface lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen
There isn't one point there that I can disagree with. Now about the serum: in the past I have used products containing hyaluronic acid, but apart from how much active ingredient is actually in the bottle, it seems that the synergy with other components is crucial. This serum is packaged in a glass bottle with a dropper to facilitate precise application. The contents are 1 fluid ounce or 30 ml, which is pretty standard, but you need very little to cover your whole face and neck, making this product really good value for money. It looks like it can easily last a couple of months. With gentle massage, the almost clear gel sinks in easily and dries quickly. You then apply your favourite cream or oil on top, which now has a much better chance to penetrate and actually do some of the wonderful things promised on the box. A serum is a carrier, so it is very important to choose an effective moisturiser or nourishing cream to apply afterwards.
