Deciem Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Serum Review

Hey everyone!

My skin has changed a lot in last few years from being combination - oily to dry and dehydrated all thanks to my hectic work schedule and traveling! Also as we age our skin tends to become more and more dry and signs of ageing start to show. Even though I don't have any fine lines or wrinkles my skin does tend to get dry a lot almost to a point of feeling tightness in the skin and not in a good way. Hyaluronic Acid based creams and serums are exploding in the market all thanks to Caroline Hirons, atleast that where I first heard of it!

If you don't know Hyaluronic Acid is a component naturally found in our bodies and has the tendency to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water! Thats some intense hydration! Hylamide is the first born of the brand Deciem and one of the most affordable options in skincare combined with some very high level science! 
Clinically-advanced serum for multi-depth rehydration, visible plumping and texture regularity.

So what is Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Serum exactly?
A highly active concentrate of advanced hyaluronic complexes, next-generation peptides and biotechnological technologies to target rehydration on and below skin surface, while visibly improving lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and textural damage.

My Thoughts
I picked up Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age serum along with their eye cream(review coming up soon) last year in November during their black friday promotion and have been using it ever since, infact I am almost done with it. The serum comes in a very stylish and modern packaging which to me is very feminine and attractive! It comes in a frosted glass bottle with a pipette and bright purple sticker! I love how the purple stands against the plain white frosted bottle! 

The consistency of the serum is thicker than I expected, it almost feels like oil but once applied on the skin it vanishes in few seconds! My skin literally drinks it up instantly! It gives a boost of hydration and skin feels soft and plump. The serum contains very impressive ingredients including 5 types of hyaluronic acid blend which is a blessing for likes of us having dry and dehydrated skin! Before using this serum I used to get dry patches around my nose and sides of the mouth but since I started using this serum the dry patches gone! Even if I don't apply the serum consecutively everyday I no longer get those dry patches!

It is a fantastic hydrating serum on its own but my favorite way of using is under moisturizers/serums and oils! It keeps me hydrated through out the day as compared to using it alone. The serum will work for all skin types as its hyaluronic acid and gets absorbed instantly without any sticky residue behind! Only 2-3 drops are needed for the entire face and neck so a bottle does last a long time! You can even mix it with your other serums and moisturizers and it works fine.

The only grips is I did not see any textural changes in my skin mainly referring to scarring, I still have visible pores on the cheeks and still have some texture due to previous battle with acne. Having said that I do not have any fine lines or wrinkles yet (fingers crossed) so I really cannot vouch for that but I have heard people say it does work on fine lines and wrinkles making them appear lesser as hyaluronic acid makes the skin plump and well hydrated. 

Over all its a fantastic serum when it comes to hydration issue especially for the price point it really is very high quality! Hylamide also has booster series with a lower price range and I picked up the Low Molecular HA to see how it compares to its big brother SubQ Anti-Age and Hydraluron so definitely stay tuned for a comparison in the future!

  1. This sounds like a great serum. I'd love to give it a try in winters.

    1. I think you'll love it! Its great for all year round really!

  2. such a detailed review pari. I love knowing about different brands and various skincare. ..being on the sensitive skn side, I am scared to try most brands.... But, Will try to get a sample of this and see if it works for me...Next in my list is Sunday Riley...

    1. Definitely look into Hylamide..their formulations are really good for all skin types! Sunday Riley Good Genes are of the best AHA product out there but definitely on the expensive side!

  3. The Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream formula is smooth and creamy. All you need is a small bit which will be easily absorbed into your skin.
