GIVEAWAY: Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Facial Skincare Serum

The season has changed to autumn, and here in New England, I’ve turned the heat on in my house. That means drier air inside the house. And winter, that’s just around the corner, usually means drier air outside, too. My skin always feels so much drier in the winter. Besides switching to a heavier moisturizer, what to do?

                                                  

About a month ago, I had the opportunity to try 100% Pure Hyaluronic Acid from Cosmedica Skincare.  For those of you who may be new to hyaluronic acid, it occurs naturally in body tissue. Its function is to lubricate joints and hydrate tissue including skin. Hyaluronic acid is abundant in young skin, but its level decrease with age. Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture. In fact, it has been known to hold 1000 times its weight in water! Topical application of hyaluronic acid has been shown to help skin maintain moisture and act more like young skin. With regular use, hyaluronic acid will produce anti-aging benefits. It will naturally promote skin elasticity and boost collagen production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. And who doesn’t want that?

Enter Cosmedica Skincare, a US company that manufactures high quality skincare serums. Here is some information on Cosmedica, their mission and the way they work:

“Cosmedica Skincare is dedicated to healthy skin and simple products. Each    professional product is formulated with high purity ingredients that are natural, paraben-free, and domestically sourced. With a minimalist philosophy to skincare, we are committed to delivering highly effective products with unparalleled results.

To ensure the highest standard of quality control, all products are manufactured in FDA registered labs in compliance with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP).  Highly knowledgeable chemists work with advanced technology and emerging scientific research to formulate our products. We stand by our products 100% and work to fully preserve the integrity of our brand through quality products and an unmatched commitment to superior customer care.”

When I read about Cosmedica’s manufacturing processes and strict product standards and learned that they use the highest grade hyaluronic acid, I knew this was a product I wanted to try. I have been using Cosmedica’s Pure Hyaluronic Acid for over a month, and I knew right from day one that this product is a keeper. Cosmedica’s hyaluronic acid is oil-free and not greasy, and it’s water-based. It can be used by those with oily skin as well as women with dry skin like me.

Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Serum

It comes in an amber glass bottle to protect the efficacy of the ingredients, and it has a dropper. Just a very small amount of the serum goes a long way. I fill the dropper to less than 1/4 full, and that amount covers my entire face and neck. With hyaluronic acid serum, there’s no need to pile it on, just a thin layer is all it takes. It absorbs almost immediately. Amazing! Then I apply my moisturizer, and the hyaluronic acid serum helps pull the moisturizer into my skin, making the moisturizer more effective.

I use the product morning and evening, after washing my face, and I apply to damp skin. Using Cosmedica’s Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum right after a shower is the best. With my pores open, it has the maximum ability to get absorbed.

Or if you like, the product can also be added right into your moisturizer, to save a step. Because I use different moisturizers for morning and evening, and I often switch up brands, I apply my Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid separately to bare skin. Actually, Cosmedica Hyaluronic Acid is the one product I use twice a day, every day.

Earlier this year, I tried a different brand of hyaluronic acid serum. It was oil-based, and it took forever to sink into my skin. I had to wait seemingly forever before applying my moisturizer. And because it was heavy and took a while to absorb, I only used it once a day, at night. It also had a weird smell. I finished up the bottle, and I just couldn’t bring myself to buy it again. Plus it was quite pricey. So happy that Cosmedica’s Pure Hyaluronic Acid came my way :)

And nice surprise, my aesthetician told me I had well-hydrated skin when I went for my last facial. She said she almost never sees skin that’s in such good shape. Yeah!

  10. I stumbled across your site as I was looking for a new facial care product that would help me revitalize my tired, aging skin. I live in Vermont, it was 19 degrees this morning when I walked my dog, and the heat is on! I just turned 55, my body is in pretty good shape but the lines in my face are bringing me down! If you have other products to recommend, please do! Thanks a ton for your great advice!

    • Thanks, HockeyMom, for finding my blog and entering the giveaway! A couple of good moisturizers that you might consider are for daytime, Nuance by Salma Hayek with SPF 30 that’s sold at CVS, and for nighttime, Olay Regenerist Sculpting Cream, that’s widely available at drugstores, Walmart, Target, Costco etc. OWN at Ulta stores makes a number of very good moisturizers with good for you ingredients, but it is a little harder to find: sold at Ulta stores and Whole Foods as well as online. I wrote a review on the Nuance moisturizer and eye treatment a few months ago, if you want to read those to see if the brand is right for you. Good luck in the giveaway, and hope you’ll check in and continue to read the blog from time to time!

  12. I was just on Amazon looking at hyaluronic acid containing products. There were two that were most appealing, one of which was made by Cosmedica Skincare. So I looked for more reviews on google and came upon your review and giveaway. Thank you for your thorough review. I’m sold! Well, it’s in my Amazon cart to be purchased (pending more items to get free shipping).

  13. Carol C is also not good at paying attention. Forgot to mention I subscribed (glad I found the blog being over 40 and from New England too). And facebook liked. The end.

    • Carol, that’s so funny. So glad you found my blog, you’re from New England, and you are looking for hyaluronic acid! Thanks for subscribing, liking NSDB on FB and entering, and good luck :)

  14. I am recovering from chemo treatment and as my hair is slowly growing back in, I have a lot of my face/forehead showing. I am still sefl-concious about my short to non-existent bangs and would really appreciate a way to rejeunevate my skin!

    • Your short hair is adorable, Kim, but I know you’ve always taken good care of your skin, and hyaluronic acid does hydrate and rejuvenate :) Thanks for entering and good luck!

  17. I would like to try it because as I have become older I have somehow aquired biker skin on my face. I moisturize morning and night but I need something more. And I would also like to get rid of my crows feet without botox.

    • Emi, what is ‘biker skin’? I’ve never heard of that, but it sounds very descriptive! Hyaluronic acid serum is great at helping your moisturizer work better. Thanks for entering and good luck :)

  18. For almost 25 years I have had horrible, mixed complexed, broken out skin. I would love to use this serum to help with my facial ritual to get a beautiful complexion and be confident Thank you for the giveaway.

    • Thank you, Dorrie, for entering and following, liking, subscribing to my blog. Taking care of skin can be a difficulty, but it’s worth doing as you know. Good luck in the giveaway :)

  19. I would love to win this because last night the temperatures went down to the 30’s and winter is here! My face gets so dry from the cold weather and wind that it needs a little help.

    • It’s true, Kathy. In the winter, it’s so important to stay hydrated! Thanks for entering, subscribing, liking and following. Good luck :)

    • HA is important to add to your skincare regimen to help dry skin stay hydrated. Thanks, Claire, for entering and good luck!

  20. I’d like to win this because I just turned 40 and I can suddenly see wrinkles and dry skin. I’m new to skin care products and would like to try this.

    • Thanks, Renae, for entering. Hyaluronic acid serum is fairly new to skincare (within the past 5+ years), and it is a naturally occurring substance in the body that dissipates with age. Luckily, it seems to work topically to help skin hold onto moisture and boost collagen. It’s a smart thing to add to your skincare routine. Good luck in the giveaway!

  21. I would love to win this! I am battling the dull lifeless skin right now. I feel like the cold weather just sucks the moisture out of my face lol! I try to avoid it but I have to walk the dog daily so there isn’t much avoiding it lol.

  22. I want to win this because i’m 28 and have a thyroid condition that has left my skin a mess. I’m aging quickly and need to start doing something about it.

    • Gee, sorry about your thyroid condition, but it is never too early to start taking care of your skin. Thank you for entering, Danielle, and for following on Twitter and good luck :)

    • I know what you mean about the effect of cold winter on skin, Julie. Thanks for entering, subscribing, and liking NSDB on FB! Good luck :)

    • Jackee, I’ve been thinking of adding the HA supplements as well. Thanks for entering, following on Twitter, and liking on FB! Good luck :)

  23. Would like to add HA to my skin regime as I’m constantly hearing about it’s efficacy! Thanks for a fantastic giveaway!

    • It is a good thing to add HA to your skincare routine, Monja. Thanks for entering, liking NSDB on FB and following! and good luck :)

  24. I can relate to your problem of oily products not being quickly absorbed. I have the same problem! Even on the rest of my body, regular heavy body lotions just lie there on the surface of my skin and take forever to actually be absorbed. I’m thinking that the outer skin on my face needs intensive treatment to help beneficial products like moisturizers to take effect. Maybe this is what I’ve been looking for!

    • This is a cool product, Deb. Not only does it absorb quickly but put moisturizer or oil over it to help the moisturizer work better. You can even mix it into your moisturizer for an all-in-one product, but I like to put it on first and follow it up with my moisturizer du jour, lol. Thank you for entering and good luck!

    • Definitely good for helping with both. Thanks for entering, Kimberly, and for liking on FB (hasn’t shown up yet but hopefully it will), and following on Twitter! Good luck :)

    • Yes, so important to keep skin hydrated in the cold, dry winter. Thanks for entering, liking, subscribing, and following, Megan! And good luck :)

    • Hyaluronic acid should help hydrate your skin and make it look more supple. I like it a lot and have been using it for a year. Thanks for entering, Dawn, and good luck!

  25. I would love to win so I can try this out! As I’m getting older I am always looking for the best products to help me out a little bit! Thanks :)

    • It should help, Laurie. It’s a great product. Thanks for entering, following, subscribing & liking NSDB on FB. Good luck!

  26. I have medical issues causing skin aging and loss of firmness much faster than normal, would love to try this product. My eyelids began sagging and in less than 1 yr looked as if I was closing them 75 percent of the way, it was so bad my medical insurance actually paid to have the(cosmetic) eyelid surgery women. Wecould have never afforded that. So I would love to try on face, cheeks, and neck.

    • Thanks so much for your comment, Abbie. I’m so sorry for your troubles but glad to hear that you were able to have the surgery you needed. I know that supplements can’t provide surgical results, hopefully they will provide some help. Thank you for entering and good luck in the giveaway!
