The INKEY List is a brand that’s renowned for its simple, effective, yet budget-friendly skincare range and this hyaluronic acid serum is one of their most popular products. Usually retailing for £5.99, it has just had its price slashed on Amazon by 22 percent, bringing it down to just £4.67.
For those who aren’t sure what exactly hyaluronic acid does and why it’s such a popular skincare ingredient, it acts as a moisture binder for your skin as it’s able to hold 1000 times its weight in water, which helps your skin cells retain as much moisture as possible.
As hyaluronic acid serums go, this one by The INKEY List is a popular one, amassing more than 1,100 5-star reviews on Amazon.
What makes this particular serum special is that it uses three different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid in its formulation so that it can penetrate and hydrate every layer of the skin, helping to even out skin tone and texture, as well as fight fine lines.
Dehydrated skin is different to dry skin, and even oily skin can get dehydrated.
This serum is suited to all skin types, and this user said: “I have oily skin with dry patches and it does the trick to balance my skin.”
When skin is dehydrated, it often looks dull and lacklustre, so by giving your skin such a deep boost of hydration this serum helps skin to look plump, glowy and healthy.
One happy reviewer said: “I love this product – I’ve been using it for nearly a month now and every morning when I wake up my skin looks hydrated and glowing!”.
Another common side effect of dehydrated skin is fine lines and wrinkles, and a few reviews mentioned this serum helped them to combat these effects.
One very happy reviewer said: “This stuff is incredible value for the price! I noticed a difference on my crow’s feet and forehead lines after two uses, now I’m using it twice a day”.
Another person who was looking for something to help them treat fine lines had this to say: “I’ve always had fine lines under my eyes and I heard that this could reduce them – I didn’t expect for them to completely go away!
“I apply water, then the serum followed by a cream which absorbs into my skin and plumps my under eyes. Makes them appear less dark too as there’s less of a shadow cast on them.
“The rest of my face also feels plump and hydrated like no other cream has ever done”.
If you struggle with sensitive skin and are nervous about trying a new, potentially triggering product, many of the reviews mentioned this particular serum working well with sensitive skin types.
This reviewer, who said she’d struggled with sensitive skin for years, wrote: “I don’t know if it’s because it absorbs right into the skin almost immediately that I don’t take a reaction or what it is exactly but I will say this I am totally amazed at my new non-dry flaky skin and at 50 I can’t believe I might just have found the perfect stuff for my face”.
