5 Best Hyaluronic Acid Serums Under $35
Hyaluronic Acid is a clear substance that works to keep skin hydrated, visibly plump, and fights fine lines and wrinkles when used routinely.
It is naturally found in the body and absorbs water like a sponge leaving skin fuller, plumper, and glowing. Hyaluronic Acid holds 1000x its weight in water helping skin to retain moisture.
Hyaluronic Acid (sodium hyaluronate) serums come in six different molecular weights which penetrate the skin at different levels.
Molecules with a lower weight are smaller, and can, therefore, reach the deeper layers of skin. Those with high molecular weights remain closer to the surface where they can deliver visible results but only for a short time.
Hyaluronic Acid Serums
Hydraluron Moisture Serum – Seven years ago, the first Hyaluronic Acid I ever used was this one by Indeed Labs. It’s been reformulated a couple of times and keeps getting better. This is a low molecular weight acid which penetrates deep into the skin to target fine lines and wrinkles. It contains the purest form of hyaluronic acid and red marine algae. The entire skincare range from Indeed Labs is impressive. $24.99 at Ulta.
NIOD Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex – This is an incredible formula that contains multiple molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid as well as peptides. NIOD is the high-tech sister company to The Ordinary. I’ve tried The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid which I found a little too sticky for my preference. NIOD’s Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex is above par. $35.00 at DECIEM.
Hylamide SubQ – The brand Hylamide is also within the DECIEM family. This serum contains multiple hyaluronic compounds, high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid for daily plumpness and fine lines, as well as peptides. $22 at DECIEM.
Hylamide Low-Molecular Hyaluronic Acid – If you’re looking for a low molecular hyaluronic serum, very similar to Hydraluron by Indeed Labs, to target fine lines and wrinkles, this is a great affordable option. $14 at DECIEM.
Hadalabo JAPAN Skin Institute Gokujun Premium Hyaluronic Solution – K-Beauty brands have some very high-quality yet affordable hyaluronic serums. I rate Hadalabo highly. It contains five molecular weights and this bottle will last you for months. $15 on Amazon.
