Dr. Denese Super-Size 2oz. HydroShield Moisturizing Face Serum
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!
Exceptional serum. Sports drink for the skin.
Love, love, love it!! I've been using this serum for at least 7 years now & am on auto-delivery. I never want to be without it. I've found my skin responds with less lines & wrinkles as well as feeling soft & supple. Im constantly taken for 10 yrs younger than i actually am. I was worried that my skin would become oily but despite initially using way more than necessary this never happened! In fact when I'm feeling extra dry I increase the amount a bit. Only really need a few drops for forehead to chest. Resurface & Glow is a fabulous gentle exfoliating cleanser as a first step! Simply love it them both!!!!!!
Can't Live Without it!!!!!
This product is amazing. Funny thing is I brought the smaller travel size with me on a vacation and it wasn't quite enough, so in went the q-tip to get whatever was left. Phew, I had just enough, never will I leave home with so little. And no it doesn't take much to work either.
I told my daughter I thought my skin was looking better because I quit smoking 15 years ago, she agreed but also said my Dr Denese was making me look that much younger. She keeps telling me how I look so great even younger that some of my younger friends. Can't beat that one.
This serum along with the pads and the Hydrating Moisture Cream are the best I have ever used. And I have tried many..
Dr. Denese you have found the fountain of youth for many of us, so I thank you for that. I am sorry that it doesn't' work for everyone. It is sheer radiance on your skin.. LOVE IT...
Love the results, hate the delivery system
Wow! Luminous and dewy describes my complexion after using Hydroshield.
But I HATE the "stopper" system. Tried this product several years ago and the problem was the same -- very little product is "sucked up" into the tube for application. My solution is to "wipe" the sides of the tube to get product onto my face .... it's messy and I feel I'm not getting full value of the product. I would love to give "5 stars" but the delivery is so bad I'm reduced to three.
Please improve your application system, Dr. D.... this is annoying enough that if I find a product with equal results and a better delivery system ... I will defect.
