The journey for great skin is different for each of us as we all have different base skin types (oily, dry, whatever “normal” actually means, etc.), different trouble zones, different preferences on the types of products that we see make a difference in our complexion – the list goes on. We were very excited to try the clinical-grade Youth Hydra Serum from Dear by Renee, a highly concentrated Hyaluronic Acid serum with Caviar that claims to offer intensive hydration and address aging where it begins while restoring a youthful radiance and smoothing the appearance of fine lines.
We followed the recommended usage instructions of two pumps twice a day, massaging gently into our face, before applying moisturizer for a four week period. Unfortunately, after following the protocol to the letter we can’t report a visible reduction in fine lines and found the product to leave our face feeling a little sticky for a short time after application. This feeling does go away quickly, but it took some getting used to. Disclaimer: for our particular skin type, which we could classify as normal with an oily T-zone, we find heavier creams tend to make a more noticeable difference for our problem areas as opposed to serums like this one. This goes back to how all skin is different and products often work differently for different people.
The company states that all Dear by Renée products contain a high concentration of active ingredients, enabling them to deeply penetrate the skin to repair targeted skin cells while protecting against future damage. They also offer proven and safe formulas, free of harmful add-ons such as mineral oil, petrolatum, parabens, hydroquinone, benzoyl peroxide, SD Alcohol 40, and others, so you can cure your skin without the use of harmful chemicals. Dear by Renee products are backed by a 100 percent guarantee for 30 days so if you tend to like serum products this may be one worth trying. Available here for $74.95.
