Review of Oz Naturals 5% Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C Skincare Serum

Full Disclosure: I received a free bottle of OZ Naturals 5% Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C Serum in exchange for an honest review of their product. Powered by BrandBacker!

One of the most popular trends in the skincare industry right now is hyaluronic acid serum. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful humectant (a moisture-binding ingredient) that keeps skin plump, hydrated, and young-looking. It is naturally occurring in the human body and in particular in the spaces between skin cells. It provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin and is abundant in babies, but decreases as we age.

Hyaluronic acid fillers require a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to inject them directly into sunken or wrinkled areas to plump them up. However, a serum or moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid can be used at home to achieve some of the same benefits, though not as dramatic and instantaneous as that of fillers.

Vitamin C is often combined with hyaluronic acid in popular serums. Vitamin C is a free-radical fighter and helps produce collagen naturally.

So I decided to try a Hyaluronic Acid Serum myself. I obtained a 1 oz. bottle of OZ Naturals 5% Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C serum from Amazon.com. The product is made in the USA at an FDA registered facility. OZ Nauturals states that the product is cruelty free, vegan, 92% natural and 72% organic.

The first thing I noticed was that the bottle was a generous size for a skincare serum. So often I see tiny bottles of expensive skincare products so it was nice to see a larger bottle that was priced well below $20/oz.

The applicator for the serum is a squeeze dropper which made it easy to apply just the right amount of serum without waste.

I applied the serum to my smile lines, which are fairly deep, and under my eyes which are puffy and also have lines.

I immediately felt a slight tightening of the skin, but it wasn't a dry tightening. My skin felt hydrated and firm.

The smile lines around my mouth were still there, but not as deep. The puffiness around my eyes also diminished slightly.

I applied moisturizer and makeup over the serum, and it didn't affect the results.

I also applied the serum to the backs of my hands, which have many small wrinkles. My skin felt softer, and more supple immediately, and the lines were less obvious.

The following day I repeated the same process and saw the same results. After reading about the hyaluronic acid serums, I saw that results may improve after repeated uses. Based on the preliminary results as well as the cost of the product, I will definitely continue to use the OZ Naturals 5% Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C serum to help reduce the look of my wrinkles and puffiness and hydrate my skin!

OZ Naturals 5% Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C serum is clinical strength and offers a money back guarantee.

Currently, if you purchase 3 or more bottles through Amazon, you will receive a discount coupon code!
