One thing is for sure, the Hyalogic Episilk Instant Facelift Serum delivered instant results. I decided to give it a try after my friend recommended it to me and raved about the great results she achieved after using it. Recently, I began to notice that there are fine lines forming in between my eyebrows and forehead; and my upper eyelids are starting to lose their firmness. So I decided to give this product a test and use it on areas on my face where I was looking to get an instant fix.

I followed the instructions, applying twice a day to damp skin on areas of concern. Because these serums are very concentrated, adding a very small amount of water helps to activate them for best results. I waited for my face to dry after application and proceeded with the rest of my skincare regimen. I found that it is important to follow the instructions and wait for the face to dry before you put on your next skincare product or makeup to make sure the serum doesn’t flake on your skin.

The results were surprisingly instant! It left my skin softer, supple and definitely firmer; thus, my lines were smoothed and less visible. My upper eyelids were firmer and had a lifted look. It also left my skin hydrated all day. I got compliments on how nice my skin looked and the results lasted even after I stopped using the product.

Besides hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient, it boasts of another ingredient called Pepha-Tight. This is a unique ingredient that has the ability to support the skin’s natural firmness and vitality. It is derived from microalgae (Nannochloropsis oculata) and designed to firm and tighten skin while at the same time promoting a healthy collagen network.

The serum is not greasy, it has no color or scent, and it came in 1-oz bottle. The bottle goes a long way. Priced under $40, I definitely recommend this product to those who are looking to get an instant fix or looking to smoothen or reduce wrinkles and hydrate their skin and collagen production.

Ingredients: Water, Pepha®-Tight (Pullulan, Algae Extract), Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Zinc Glyconate, Xanthan Gum, Vegetable Glycerin, Vitamin A, Citric Acid, Glucose, Lactoperoxidase, Glucose Oxidase

    What a great review! If you also use a vitamin c serum, do you use the Vitamin C first or the Episilk??

    I am currently using a Hyaluronic Acid from Hyalogic and I love it too! But this one sounds promising :)
