Preview Your Review
I have used this serum for many years...can't even remember how long...and I absolutely love it. I use it every day and I'm 65...and I'm constantly told I don't look my age by both men and women, old and young. I hate the feel of my skin without it. Even if I don't take time to do anything else after washing my face I use this. I have very sensitive skin around my eyes and many products irritate it, even some of Dr. Denese' other items, but this does not. I would highly recommend it for anyone!!!!!
My aging skin needed more moisture than normal cream could offer. Dr. Denese works for me! I have even noticed a decrease in wrinkle depth..yeah!
I've been using HydroShield Face Serum for more than 5 years now and I intend to use it for as long as Dr. Denese makes it. Easy to use, glides on smoothly and best of all, it does wonders to my skin. I also apply Dr. Denese's moisturizer right after the HydroShield.
I'm 64 this year and I have no lines or wrinkles and my facial skin is supple. And this is the wonder I am referring to.
My main product
I cannot live without this. I've always had combination skin and then suddenly my skin was flaky dry. I tried so many products even from philosophy which I love (and still use) but this was the only product that actually changed the texture of my skin. As long as my skin was exfoliated this product sinks in immediately. At night I use the dream cream on top and wake up w supple smooth skin. Truly a miracle for me. A little goes a long way so the price point is worth it.
My skih looks great!
I purchased the "buy one, get one free" offer Dr. Denese made awhile back. I was unsure because it is so expensive but I was so tired of using moderate priced moisturizers and getting moderate results! This product is amazing, hydrating, and incredible. It is worth every penny and a little bit does a long way. I am leaving PTR and Dr. Pericone and going to use Dr. Denese only because every product of hers I try truly performs. You need to buy this!
Didn't Work For Me
I tried this product for a couple of weeks and my skin was still very dry. It just did not work for me. I loved the soft feel of it on my face but it wasn't enough to keep it. The thing I disliked about it most was the mess the eye dropper made. The eye dropper is too big for the bottle so the serum would drip down the edges of the bottle when putting it in and taking it out. It is pretty expensive stuff to lose that much of it everyday. I sent it back.
This serum is great for everyone, just try it! Its not just moisture, check out the ingredient list! TONS of anti-aging ingredients & peptides! GREAT base for any cream, her dream cream over it really is a dream though!
Delivery system is appalling
I can't attest yet as to whether the product has made any difference but I will say that the delivery system regarding the plunger is just awful. It drips everywhere and doesn't come out easily as a drop at all. I don't understand why it would have been marketed this way, instead of using a pump system. For this reason alone, along with the cost, it will be going back. Sorry Dr.
Like putting liquid silk on your face!!
I use this as part of a 3 piece system (not offered as a set anymore but I am on auto-delivery) by Dr. Denese and absolutely love it!! It is like putting liquid silk on my face and it provides the right amount of hydration to my skin. I also use the Contouring Serum (nighttime) and the Hydrating Corrector Cream (both day and night)...I love all three products. It can be a little tricky to apply with the tube but I use my hands anyway so application into your hand is the best way.
Not that great
My first experience with HydroShield was when it was offered together with the LightStim, and I was not impressed. The consistency of the product is very runny and extremely messy to use with the eye dropper. I'm wondering why this product is available in two delivery systems. The pump bottle would be more suitable since much product is wasted during application with the dropper. The product would run down the sides of the bottle every time I tried to apply it. It may not be a good choice if you are reactive to silicones. Retinol is the active ingredient with a few hydrating lipids and a preservative. I wouldn't call this a miracle product and there is nothing special about it. Also, it can be drying to certain skin types.
Best Product For My Skin
My skin loves this product. I tried other products but came back to Hydro Shield Face Serum. Love Dr. Denese's line of products.
BEST MOISTURIZER EVER!
I have used Dr. Denese's HydroShield Moisturizing Serum in the past and ran out. Due to the cost, I did not re-order. I notice a huge difference in my skin when I am not using this product. People tell me I look younger than I am when I'm using the serum and my skin just glows! My makeup also goes on much better. I've never used a more effective moisturizing product. I will not be without this product again. I'll skimp on something else, but I'll always be treating my skin to this product.
*Do not be afraid it is oily. Your skin will absorb it immediately. My skin just drinks it right up!
