Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Advanced Serum

Wednesday, 5 August 2015


When I was asked if I would like to try the Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Advanced Serum, I immediately noticed the clinical looking packaging, the list of impressive sounding ingredients and the fact that it claims to treat every layer of skin, offering noticeable results in 5 days.  I have been meaning to add a serum to my skincare routine for a while so I was interested to see the results of this on skin that hadn't used a serum in a long while.  The other interesting thing about this product is that it only costs £30.

It contains a 'concentrated curation of the latest science advancements', a few different types of hyloronic acid, peptides and lots of other crazy sounding ingredients that promise to hydrate both the surface and below the surface of your skin, treat fine lines and sagginess and regulate the texture of your skin.  Having turned 30 this year I am definitely noticing the fine lines all over my god damn face, so this was all sounding rather attractive.  I have tried a lot of serums in the past and always noticed the extra hydration they provided by penetrating that layer of skin that moisturiser physically can't get to but at the time, I was too young to notice any anti-ageing results.

A week in and I'm pretty much loving this stuff, I can feel it penetrate my skin instantly, which is extremely satisfying and allows for a less moisturiser afterwards.  I'm not sure if its the cynic in me but I didn't expect much from it reducing my fine lines visibly, I haven't been checking my face daily hoping for an improvement because, honestly, I didn't really expect one but I just inspected my face in the magnifying mirror near the window and my fine lines actually do look reduced, especially around my eyes where the skin has plumped up considerably!  Cor blimey, nice work Hylamide, now firmly staking its claim to the neglected serum spot in my skincare routine, I'm pretty pleased it only costs £30.

The packaging is annoying and a bit clinical looking for my liking, I find pipets really fiddly to use and would much prefer a pump bottle.  The smell isn't amazing but I like that it obviously doesn't have fragrance in it to cover that up and its not highly offensive, once its on your face, the smell goes anyway.  Those are my only negatives, its still an amazing product for the price, perfect for anyone worried about ageing but possibly new to the serum world or concerned about price but still wanting a very effective product.

Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Advanced Serum, along with the rest of the range is available in Boots.
