Review: Loveisderma Hydramax Serum


Loveisderma is a bit more aggressive recently. They are sending me a few of their products and I am seeing their products almost everywhere on the Instagram. Among which, this Loveisderma Hydramax Serum has gained the most popularity and attention in the Insta society! I got mine from Loveisderma several months ago and after using the product for several months now I am quite ready to share my own 2 cents on it!



As you can see, the product comes packed in a lab tube kind of thing, pretty similar to The Ordinary products. Inside is a transparent and slightly viscous serum that you can squeeze out using the spatula inside. There is no scent whatsoever to it. Slightly sour and alkaline if you try to smell hard.

Loveisderma advertises it as a skin quenching serum with high concentration of hyaluronic acid. It can increase your skin's moisture retention and hydration levels while protecting your skin's resistance against external aggressors. Its niacinamide and panthenol contents help to strengthen your skin's moisture barrier, making it softer and toned over prolonged usage.

In short, this is a hyaluronic acid, panthenol and niacinamide infused moisturizing serum.



As you can see, the texture of this serum is pretty lightweight. It is a clear watery serum that gets absorbed almost immediately into your skin. The consistency is quite similar to any other hyaluronic acid serum that I have tried. Hada Labo and Manyo Factory are some of the examples.

INGREDIENTS


Aqua, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citric Acid, Panthenol, Niacinamide, Glyoxal, Sodium Nitrate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Glycerin, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA

INGREDIENTS ANALYSIS


Key ingredients here are hyaluronic acid, panthenol, and niacinamide. Green tea extract is also added for anti-oxidizing and moisturizing benefits. The rest are mainly fillers. The preservative used is phenoxyethanol for those who are sensitive of paraben.

Many moisturizing products uses things like sodium hyaluronate and panthenol nowadays. Sodium hyaluronate is basically a sodium salt derived from hyaluronic acid. It is a skin's natural occurring component and is also a natural moisturizing factor, hence is less likely to cause irritation. One thing to be careful when using hyaluronic acid though is that since hyaluronic acid is a humectant, chances are it might pull moisture out of your skin in really dry environment, like under an air-con room. So you might experience greater dehydration in those cases, leading to flakiness, itchiness and dryness of the skin.

PERFORMANCE


This is pretty normal in my opinion. I have tried many moisturizing serums before, thus this feels kinda so-so compared to many others I have tried. I have tried two really similar ones from Manyo Factory and Hada Labo. They are all clear watery serum that offers moisture and hydration, leaving my skin somewhat plumper and soothed. But I unfortunately did not see any brightening, repairing, or firming effects from this product. There is also no visible improvements in my fine lines and dry lines. One thing I do notice is that my skin is less prone to dehydrated-related oiliness. It is less likely to produce sebum even after having it for a few hours.

CONCLUSION


This is a nice, gentle and effective moisturizing serum, but nothing too fancy or memorable to warrant a repurchase. I enjoy adding it into my other creams or heavier products to make the texture lighter, but that's all basically I do with it.

Overall impression: ★★★
Repurchasing: ☆
