Forlan: Hyaluronic Acid Serum with Vitamin A, C, D, and E Review

Forlan: Hyaluronic Acid Serum with Vitamin A, C, D, and E Review

I was excited to try out Forlan Hyaluronic Acid Serum with vitamin A, C, D, & E.  Just the title of this serum sounds interesting!  I had heard about hyaluronic acid before, but I was really unsure as to what it actually does for the skin.  I mean, the word “acid” sounds like something I would NOT want to put on my skin, so I did a little research. 

Definition of Hyaluronic Acid:

The unique properties of Hyaluronic Acid make it the ideal anti-aging treatment for a good skincare routine. Hyaluronic Acid plays an important role in tissue hydration, lubrication and cellular function. Incredibly, Hyaluronic Acid is able to hold more water than any other natural substance - making it one of the world's best moisturizers. Its unmatched hydrating properties result in increased smoothness and softening and a decrease in wrinkles.

I was surprised to find that hyaluronic acid is actually "a naturally occurring carbohydrate in the human body”.   It is found in large amounts in between skin cells, and in the fluids in the eyes and joints. As your body ages, it produces less hyaluronic acid. Using a serum that contains hyaluronic acid is one of the ways to restore a youthful look and feel to your skin.

So basically, hyaluronic acid has moisture retention properties and now that I just turned 40, I can use all the moisture retention properties as I can get!  The serum comes in a pump bottle.  With one pump, you get just the right amount to cover your entire face and neck.  It is colorless and has just a faint floral smell.  It has a gel like consistency that is lightweight (like Aloe Vera).  I really like how lightweight the formula is and how quickly it dries.

I wash my face and apply this right afterward.  My face absorbs it right away and dries quickly.  I then apply my moisturizer and makeup primer.  You have to be careful not to apply too much because I did experience some stickiness on my face when I applied too much (two pumps).  Since you only need one pump, twice a day, this bottle will last you a few months.  

Final Thoughts
I have been using this serum for three weeks and I can report that my skin feels hydrated and plump.  It has Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel & Lavender Oil in it and all 3 are not only amazing for skin, but contain soothing/healing properties as well.  Since my skin is loosing hyaluronic acid as I age, it is replenishing what I have lost and adding a healthy, dewy glow.  This rich formula rejuvenates and hydrates my skin adding the benefits of multiple Vitamins all in one.
