One company that focuses on anti-aging skin care products is Hydroderm. They offer an array of treatments for aging skin ranging from cellulite cream to face wash. This review will focus on Hydroderm’s best selling product, their Original Age-Defying Wrinkle Serum. Is it worth buying?
Hydroderm Wrinkle Serum consists of a combination of marine collagen and something called Vyo-Serum. The official website explains that this serum is a combination of select proteins which act as an “instant lifting serum”. The tensing action helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The Vyo-serum also contains a skin smoothing agent.
According to the Hydroderm website, the serum contains 50% pure marine collagen. Collagen is a heavy weight molecule and usually has trouble penetrating the skin. The website states that Hydroderm is the “only product clinically proven to carry collagen directly to the skin without injections”.
The website is informative and professional. It provides before and after pics, complete ingredients lists, testimonials, and an FAQ page. There is even a page with a cosmetic surgeon endorsing the product.
The directions for use say to apply Hydroderm Wrinkle Serum to a freshly washed face twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, though it does inform us it may be applied up to 4 times a day if you choose. With consistent use, results should be visible within 7-14 days.
Where to Buy Hydroderm
Hydroderm is available from the secure website. Unlike many other manufacturers, you have the option of enrolling in the auto-ship program, which also happens if you choose their “try it before you buy it” deal, or you may order the product outright. If you choose to order an individual bottle the price will be $80. If you want to risk an auto-ship program, you’ll save about $20 a month off retail price.
You may also purchase Hydroderm from other online retailers and you may find it at a better price if you search. For example, Amazon is offering the wrinkle serum for just just $28.79 for the same size 1 ounce bottle.
- Informative, user friendly website
- Contains collagen
- Claims to be safe for any skin type
- Customer service contact info provided
- Physician recommendation on site
- Contains numerous parabens which are suspected to give some users contact dermatitis
- A bit pricey for many consumers
The idea of delivering collagen directly into the skin is intriguing because most of us understand that collagen is the secret to youthful, healthy looking skin. We also appreciate the fact that the Hydroderm website offers before and after pics, testimonials, and other helpful information. Our biggest concern about the serum is that it contains numerous parabens, so we have to warn against its use if you have sensitive skin.
