A hydrating serum for dry skin is a product that is designed to add moisture to the skin. It is usually a light, water-based gel or cream that is applied to the skin before moisturizer. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with other products in a skin care routine.
PCA SKIN Hydrating Serum contains hyaluronic acid which helps cells retain moisture and avoid dehydration. The extremely lightweight formula absorbs quickly and easily into the skin without leaving a greasy finish.
The boost of moisture also plumps the complexion to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. PCA SKIN Hydrating Serum also contains niacinamide which soothes dryness, irritation, flaking and itching, which makes this product ideal for sensitive or highly reactive skin types.
The formula is also free of synthetic dyes and fragrances and can be mixed in with your favorite moisturizer for an even richer formula. Sodium hyaluronate binds moisture to cells to hydrate skin. Glycerin hydrates and soothes a dehydrated complexion.
Gentle enough for sensitive skin. Provides essential hydration with a weightless finish. Replenish extremely dehydrated skin for a fresh and radiant appearance with PCA SKIN Hydrating Serum.

I like this product. It’s very effective at cleansing and the feel during application on my skin is excellent. It leaves my face feeling soft and clean without being stripped of moisture. There are a couple of downsides for me: the packaging, which becomes difficult to pry open after a couple of uses and the lid feels quite flimsy, as if it’s about to break off.
The other downside is that it contains a fragrance which I find a bit overwhelming, I usually prefer my skincare products to be fragrance free. But overall, I think it’s still a good cleanser.
I have both glycolic acid and retinol in my ritual (yes, you *can* use AHA and retinol together). A good level of hydration has really helped my skin to tolerate these actives. After many years of trial and error, I now do hydration as the last steps of my sequence.
Morning and evening, I finish off with a mist, a hydrating serum, and a moisturiser (plus or minus sunscreen). I finished 2 bottles of Bioderma Hydrabio Serum. It gives me the hydration I need without clogging my pores (I have easily congested skin so this is important).
It is light, non-sticky and works well with other products. Do I like it? Yes, but I can’t say it is my go-to because this serum has a rather heavy silicone feel to it. Not that I have any issue with silicones, but I feel that I already have a good dose of silicones from my moisturisers so I prefer serums with a “watery” texture.
A super- saturated hydrating fluid concentrate to help revitalize dry, parched skin. Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, Glycolipids and nutrient-rich Algae Extract help restore moisture balance and hydrate tissues to smooth skin, improve suppleness and minimize fine dryness lines.
Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors. Squeeze 6 to 10 drops onto fingertips and massage gently over face and throat. Follow with prescribed Dermalogica Moisturizer. Can also be used underneath prescribed Dermalogica Masque.
For more sensitized skin conditions, mix with prescribed Dermalogica Moisturizer then apply to face and throat. Apply to skin prior to applying Skin Hydrating Masque for a super-hydrating boost!.
Have used many Dermalogica products for over 2 decades. Used other brands when having salon facials. Nothing compares. The Skin Hydrating Booster I bought is a morning and night, everyday, essential must have for me.
It’s so soothing, nourishing, and hydrating, and has no chemical or perfume smell. I love the unique base pump that enables you to extract every drop of the product. Important since it’s a little pricey.
However, the results are well worth it! I love it!.
I’ve been using this hydrating booster for a few years now. Obviously I like it. This now comes in a new type of bottle than the old dropper squeeze bottle. It’s not bad. It still works but I need to get used to it.
Same amount of product and works just as well. I put this in my face after cleansing and toning and before anything else. I know it helps my skin be hydrated.
My dermatologist suggested this product to help with clogged pores and dry flaky skin, and was she right! This product to amazing. I feel so refreshed and clean after use with no irritation. It really has changed my skin and the fact that I can use it daily as it is not harsh on my skin.
I would highly recommend. I do however have quite hardy skin so it can manage it well.

Another The Ordinary product purchased! I have been using this for a month too, immediately after the serum and I must say that their combination is spectacular! This cream leaves the skin very hydrated and soft.
I use these products in the evening, and the next morning I have perfect skin🤩. This cream is also highly recommended! Very cheap too! ITA🇮🇹 Un altro prodotto di The Ordinary acquistato! Anche questo uso da un mese, subito dopo il siero e devo dire che la loro combinazione è spettacolare! Questa crema lascia la pelle molto idratata e morbida.
Utilizzo questi prodotti la sera, e la mattina dopo ho la pelle perfetta🤩. Consigliatissima anche questa crema! Anch’essa molto economica!.
Ho preso questa crema nel formato più piccolo, non sapendo come fosse. Ne farò scorta senza dubbio! Idrata e non unge (ho la pelle mista tendente grassa), lascia la pelle velluata, è fantastica! Per le pelli giovani va benissimo da sola, io la utilizzo dopo i sieri, mattina e sera.
Finalmente una crema ottima per pelli anche miste come la mia. La applico dopo il siero. Si assorbe facilmente e lascia la pelle ‘asciutta’ non pesante. All’inizio ero preoccupata dalla texture perché sembrava molto grassa ma una volta assorbita mi sono ricreduta.

Fully hydrate your complexion with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Facial Serum. This unique, oil-free formula addresses dry skin and hydrates with moisture absorbing hyaluronic acid. It leaves your skin quenched, smooth, and radiant.
I 100% love this product it can range from $15 to $20 depending on the size you buy! After i wash my face it tends to dry up and i would need a lotion for my face but i hated thick lotions it would absolutely irritate my face but with this product its so light you barely even feel it but you can definitely can tell your face is moisturized! with this product a little bit goes a long way meaning you only need one whole pump of the serum and that alone will moisturize your whole face! This is probably one of my favorite moisturizers i never found one better than this one!.
I am 52 and have always had normal to oily skin, but this past year it has been needing a bit more hydration. I can’t go with a creamier moisturizer because my skin will break out. This serum has been the perfect solution! It makes a huge difference in the hydration of my skin but never feels greasy.
It goes right into my skin. The scent reminds me of the ocean but isn’t overpowering. Younger ladies: Always pump your serum onto the back of your hand before applying to your face and then rub the tops of your hands together.
Your hands are one of the first places to show signs of aging. Nobody believes I am 52 because my hands look so young!.
Deeply quench your dry skin for an extra-smooth, supple complexion with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Suitable for all skin types and for use on sensitive skin, the daily face serum layers underneath your moisturizer to instantly refresh dry skin by infusing weightless moisture deep within your skin’s surface.
Proven to smooth skin and hydrate for 24 hours, the dermatologist-tested, daily face serum is formulated with 17% Hydration Complex and contains both high & low weight hyaluronic acid, an essential hydrator naturally found in skin, absorbing and holding water to the skin.
The skin-mimicking water-magnet trehalose joins with dermatologist-recommended glycerin, which penetrates nine layers deep within the skin’s surface. The hydrating face serum is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and free of fragrance, parabens & mineral oil.
Apply 4-5 drops of this lightweight hyaluronic acid serum after cleansing and before moisturizing, as part of your at-home skincare routine.
I have oily combo, acne prone skin. I was apprehensive to try since I dislike the water gel formula. I have been using this sunscreen for almost 2 month. I have repurchased and plan to continue to do so.
One pump covers my whole face, but sometimes use two pumps and it all absorbs into my skin. It does not look or feel greasy. Has not broken me out, pairs well with my skincare routine. I put after my VitC serum every morning.
It has stung my eyes before, but resolved that by now massaging the sunscreen all over my face with the exception of my eye area first, than finish up with the little left over smoothing over my eyelids and under eyes.
Even with the two pumps, this works. Also I can reply this sunscreen every two hours without it forming a nasty build up. Reapplying goes on just like the first. I have tried many face sunscreen moisturizer and this one has been by far the best and absolute favorite.
Avene Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum soothes sensitive skin with saturating hydration while promoting accelerated healing and cellular regeneration. This product offers complete protection and hydrating solutions for your skin.
This serum, which should be used daily, has been prepared with minerals and vitamins that are best suited for your skin. The serum relieves tightness and irritation for a comfortable everyday texture.
This hydrating serum ensures that harshness and skin redness and patchiness are prevented. This serum absorbs easily and leaves your complexion feeling soft and supple.
I think it’s a great hydrater for the summer. This item was recommend by a dermatologist and I really liked it. The only issue is that I have very dry skin and this serum was not sufficient during the winter months.
I had to pair it with another serum in order to get the hydration I needed. The texture is a liquid gel and it does not have too much of a smell. An overall good product.
I was introduced to this product by a medical aesthetician which was my first clue this would be amazing. I have severe dry skin and lots of food allergies that show up in my skin too. This product has been the best product I have used to combat that dryness.
I saw noticeable differences in just a couple of days. I love how this product makes my skin feel immediately after application as well. I’ve used drugstore brands all the way to $100+ products and this one takes the cake.
I will forever be an Avene customer because of this amazing product!!.

I’ll be honest and say this was my first experience with an [brand:olay] product. [brand:olay] is a reputable brand and one that generally receives positive ratings and reviews, theres just something about the brand that has always reminded me of old and outdated and not a brand I could relate to.
I don’t buy many drugstore skincare items and when I do, I have always avoided the [brand:olay] section. My interest peaked when I was sent this serum and I read some reviews. I went ahead and replaced my current hyaluronic acid serum with this in my routine and it’s been about 30 days and I haven’t switched back.
Matter of fact, I just picked up another bottle of this [brand:olay] deep hydration serum. This serum is not only comparable to my high end serum, it’s almost half the price. First impressions and packaging: At 38 bucks, this is a bit steep for drugstore pricing but after looking over the [brand:olay] section, I noticed most their products are priced significantly higher than their drugstore counterparts but still around half to a quarter of the price of high end products.
Their ingredients and potency seem to be more in-line with higher end products so the pricing seems fair and accurate as far as getting what you pay for. The packaging on this serum screams drugstore.
Unlike most of the [brand:olay] line that seems to have more of a luxurious packaging compared to the other drugstore products, this one fails to impress. The bottle is plastic as well as the dropper and while it works, it isn’t as aesthetically pleasing.
The dropper doesn’t dispense product like most droppers, a drop at a time but rather whatever is in the dropper is expelled. Formula: the fragrance free serum has a nice, lightweight consistency that soaked into my skin immediately.
It didn’t leave behind a slick or oily residue and dried down quite fast. It left my skin feeling quenched without feeling heavy. My skin did look hydrated and glowy after use. Claims: ** Like a cool drink of water for your skin.

I love that I can add a few drops to my day time moisturizer for a healthy looking glow and longer hydration. My day patches are gone and my skin is looking more radiant. Packaging is the only reason I removed one star.
I would pay extra for better packaging but being at the drugstore front, I understand why they have to keep their costs down. especially with this superior formula. Definitely recommended for anyone with dry skin or anyone who needs the extra hydration.

As I delved into the ‘over 40’s’ category one thing I really noticed was that my skin was becoming much ‘duller’ and less elastic. It lost it’s youthful/dewy, glow and was in desperate need of a ‘drink’.
I’ve never been one for make-up nor any sort of skincare routine for that matter but the effect of ageing was undeniable. After reading up a lot on how and what to use to get hydration back into my skin I took the plunge and committed to making more of an effort with my health and fitness and also invested in some hydrating skincare products.
I have to say, it has all been worth it. This serum in particular is almoust aqueous jelly-like (similar to aloe vera) and glides on well. I apply it to my slightly damp face after toning and let it settle in (which doesn’t take long) before going over with my moisturiser.
I worried that all these new products on my skin would be too thick and bring me out in spots but it was so not the case. My skin must’ve been so thirsty it drank it up. Now my cheeks are much less papery/leathery, more supple and has that natural healthy glow that I missed.
I’m also pleasantly surprised at all the lovely comments I now seem to receive about my skin since I started using these products. It’s now going to be a staple in my skincare regime.

Beauty Creams La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Serum 30 Mi Rehydrates sensitive skin. Reduces skin tightness. Pump bottle 30ml Dehydrated sensitive skin. Hyaluronic Acid, a powerful moisturising active ingredient, combined with high concentrations of La Roche-Posay thermal spring water, fills the skin with moisture for 24 hours.
Combined with Arginine and Serine, which are excellent at trapping water for intense rehydration. Infused with water, the skin is immediately plumped up. Optimum hydration levels are restored.
I’ve been using this serum for a couple of years and it’s great all year round. My skin is sensitive & loves good hydration and this serum works really well. I decided to change my skin routine a couple of months ago and use Avene serum instead but this was a mistake, my skin felt less hydrated and even got unexpected blemishes so had to stop using it.
La Roche Posay serum is so much better & more hydrating than Avene one, really worth the money.
High-diffusion serum which provides immediate and long-lasting, intense hydration and optimum comfort. Relieves tightness sensations, smoothes fine lines due to dehydration. The skin feels silky smooth.
Apply morning and/or evening onto face and neck after cleansing and applying a fine mist of Avène Thermal Spring Water. Follow with your daily moisturizer from Hydrance range. Formulated to minimize the risks of allergy.
Non comedogenic. For external use only. Avoid contact with the eyes.
This product truly works and is oh so soft and light on the skin. The skin drinks it in and doesn’t leave a greasy residue or film on top of the skin like some other serums. It definitely is an intense rehydrating serum and my skin feels like a baby’s bum.
I found that I only need a pea size per application as the serum goes a long way. When I was younger I was that tomboy who rolled out of bed and got on with the day and I never used to partook in all the facial routines and moisturising in the morning or at night with all the creams and serums however now, as I am getting older, and wiser, I have gained a new appreciation for quality serums and I look forward to using this serum as a fresh way to start the day and also as a relaxing hydrator at night.
It’s also so refreshing on the skin after a long or hot day. I use a moisturiser on top of the serum and my skin feels quite moisturised and plump all day long. Over a month I noticed that my pores and lines (frown lines, smile lines, crow’s feet) reduced significantly, and my skin appears so much clearer, plumper, softer and brighter.
It feels like I have splurged on some ridiculously expensive serum however the serum is very reasonably priced. At first I thought it was quite pricey however if 1 bottle lasts me 1 month then its really only just over $10 per week, which is equivalent to 2-3 coffees a week.
I know where I’d rather spend my money even though I consider coffee my king! I have combination skin which, as I get older and also working in air conditioning, is drier than it used to be but has the occasional oil outbreak.
This serum doesn’t seem to make my skin worse when its oilier however it definitely helps when its feeling drier. It’s also great to use as a base before applying makeup. I also use the serum after I have cleansed at night before bed and it soaks in so quickly, so I don’t have to worry about pillow slips being damaged.
I recommended this product to my mum and now we are both hooked. The packaging in chic and something I like to see on my bathroom vanity. The cylinder is clear so you can see how much you have left which is handy, so I know when to get some more.
The pump action works well and provides a suitable amount of product easily. Like anything pump action, the serum on the bottom is difficult to get out of the bottle when its almost all gone so I normally take off the pump and turn the bottle upside down so gravity helps me get the very last of the bottle contents.
I do wish the product came in bigger bottles (like a 50ml option). 1 bottle, if used morning and night last me about 1 month.
I have been using Eau Thermale Avene products for years and they have become something of a staple for me, not overly expensive but still effective skincare. They have very little fragrance, making them perfect for sensitive skin that reacts to additives and they are quite light creams, that avoid clogging the pores.
The intense hydrating serum, is very light and easily applied and absorbed into my skin, ready for day or night cream. It has the same signature mild “no-scent” scent like other Avene products. Avene has several ranges that clearly target different skin conditions and the Hydrance is of course for dry skin in need of hydration.
This is certainly something that I need, having dry, more mature, skin and I have happily added this cream to my routine with no issues. It is especially suited to the morning for light skin care under make-up.
However, for my purposes it is a little on the light side, and probably not rich enough to really absorb into my skin and make a big difference. It comes second, in my opinion, to the Physiolift serum with its firming and plumping qualities, but would probably suit a normal-combination skin-type with light hydration needs.
The pump action bottle is much more convenient and hygienic than the old “fingers-in-the-jar” style packaging. However one last slight negative – the lightness of this product doesn’t affect the price! it is still quite expensive for a pharmacy brand, given the 30 ml size and I am with other reviewers – a larger size that lasted longer would be very welcome.
This is an excellent, expert skincare routine that replenishes moisture to all types of dehydrated sensitive skin for up to 24 hours. The routine is very simple but the results are superb. The first step is to cleanse the face with the thermal spring water to sooth, freshen and balance PH levels on the skin.
Next, I apply the serum onto the face and neck to rehydrate and smooth the appearance of fine lines. Lastly I moisturise with the rich hydrating cream for a smooth finish. My skin looks and feels great.
No wonder it has been recommended by dermatologists. This is the first time I have used an Avene product but it will not be the last. A great routine that I will be using in the future.
No parabens. No sulfates. No phthalates. This silky serum helps lock in moisture to reduce the look of fine lines for glowing, healthy looking skin. Infused with purified water and skin nourishing jojoba, aloe and Vitamin E to help soothe and protect the skin.

Treat your skin to an indulgent daily dose of moisture with the Aesop Lightweight Facial Hydrating Serum. The key ingredients include lightweight and hydrating Panthenol, soothing Aloe Vera and fragrant and gentle Ylang Ylang.
These ingredients work together to deliver smoothing hydration that will leave skin soft and plumped. Despite being a serum, this product is made to an incredibly lightweight formula, making it suitable for a variety of sensitive skin types.
Great for daily use, this serum absorbs quickly and has a pleasantly fresh, floral and herbaceous scent. Aesop is known for creating skin, body and hair products with a focus on efficacy and sensory pleasure.
Its botanically-based products are formulated with incredible attention to detail in order to be as gentle and effective as possible. This hydrating serum is suitable for oily, combination, sensitive and blemish-prone skin.
The lightweight and aqueous texture also mean that this product is a great companion for summer months as well as warm and humid climates. Simply use half a teaspoon of product in the AM and PM, massaging into freshly cleansed and toned skin.
Being a consumer on LF for more than 3 years now now this is my first time ever writing a review, cuz this product is just too amazing! I have tried so many different brands of serum (yeah those expensive af ones) but they’re either sticky and oily, or too lightweight to keep my face moisturised.
This dilemma can be extra tricky for those with combination skins – we don’t want the T zones to be oily and makeup ruining, in the meanwhile, we definitely don’t want dehydrated cheeks. Somehow this product takes care of both! it’s amazing to use as night serum, or a base for makeup during the day.
Also it is not that expensive if you consider the size of it. I guess for a bottle like this, I could use it for over 6 months.
I love aesop products so I tried this serum. First the good, it is fast absorbing and light weight so if you want a light serum to use under your moisturiser then this serum would do that. However, I use a serum because my skin is so dry from the cold weather plus post pregnant and breast feeding.
It doesn’t hydrate my skin as much as I want it to, it dries quickly and almost becomes sticky on my face. It also starts to pull so if I’m using this product I always use moisturiser plus a facial oil afterwards.
It’s not my favourite serum but it’s an alright product to use daily if you have normal skin with no other concerns. I personally don’t like the smell, it has like a licorice note to it which I’m not a huge fan of.
I started using the product a while ago, the smell was unusual at first but now I love it. My partner hates cream of any kind on his skin but has bad psoriasis around his nose and cheeks. This is the perfect lightweight product for him and has cleared his skin up very quickly.
Hydrating barrier keeps the skin healthy. This hydrating serum lowers the surface temperature while providing deep moisturization to calm and cool the skin. Replenish the skin’s moisture level and give it a smooth and radiant glow throughout the day.
Rmended for those with dry, itchy skin, those with unbalanced, acne-prone skin, those who has easily heated, red skin, those that can’t easily choose their skincare products due to sensitive skin. Since 2010, Klairs has been a trusted Korean beauty brand providing the best skincare for sensitive skin.
Our products not only improve the skin’s elasticity, but also quickly soothes irritated skin for ultimately healthier and stronger skin.
I really love the texture and formulation of this product and the rich moist moisturizer. It would be my perfect product if they just didn’t put in essential oils (fragrance!). I have sensitive/compromised skin and if I am having a particularly sensitive skin day, my skin will burn for a bit with this and the moisturizer while others don’t.
It’s fine if it is one of the last ingredients, but it’s not in this product. I would never review a product as having an issue if it just didn’t work for my skin type. But this product is obviously for very dry skin which by nature is more sensitive and has a compromised skin barrier.
This skin type should never be using a product with essential oils or fragrance and has a good risk for sensitivity and so I am disappointed that they put this in a product marketed specifically for this skin type.
Everything else about it I love and I continue to use it on my good skin days but I just wish I could use it on my bad skin days aswell. I really hope someday they reformulated it to not have these irritating ingredients.
I switched to this Klairs serum from the SNP peptaronic line. Both products could be classed as “budget” serums, though the standard SNP bottle size is 220ml. I find the Klairs serum to be superior as it is more moisturizing, though this product is generally light and could do with extra ingredients such as HA.
This is both a positive and negative as I think this serum could be used a carrier for vit C products since it dosent contain any incompatible ingredients. For someone looking for a CHEAP, LIGHT and MOISUTRIZING serum this is highly recommended.
However, just note that this product really needs other products to be used in combination for a complete skincare effect (I’ve been using it with the Ordinary HA and I think the internet recommends the Klairs freshly juiced Vit C drop).
The ‘Rich Moist Soothing Serum’ really is a rich, moist and soothing! I have dry and sensitive skin, and I tend to react to alot of the serums I have tried over the years. This one feels perfect for me though.
It feels lightweight when applied, yet somehow very rich in moisture. Does not feel heavy at all. It may feel slightly tacky upon application but the tackiness is quick to go away once it dries down.
I love that it also doesn’t leave any residue on the face. I especially enjoy using this during hot/humid mornings where I don’t feel like putting on moisturiser (oops) and I feel this is enough to do the trick, even for my dry skin.
A good hydrating serum for dry skin will help to restore the skin’s natural moisture balance and improve its texture and elasticity. It will also help to protect the skin against environmental damage and keep it looking youthful and radiant.
