Better products exist that hydrate and care for oily, acne-prone skin

Hyalogic Episilk Skin Perfecting Lotion ($39.95) with hyaluronic acid and Regu-Seb is supposedly meant for combination/oily skin. I was very enthusiastic because, for me, hyaluronic acid is the ingredient that gives me instant cosmetics benefits, making my skin supple, plump and visibly hydrated. 

The Episilk Skin Perfecting Lotion probably would have been a decent product if not for the Regu-Seb. I have combination skin that clogs easily and was curious to see what that ingredient was about. What a disappointment. The packaging states that Regu-Seb is a "slightly viscous solution," containing high levels of natural lignans and phytosterols. And oh yes, viscous it is. On application, the product has a kind of slimy texture, which sits on your skin exactly like these old peel-off facial masks. It dried exactly like peel-off masks dry, getting my skin all tight and glistening, forming wrinkles every time I tried to twitch a muscle. This sensation stayed on for hours. I had to apply a second layer of moisturizer on top to hydrate, but it could not undo entirely the tightness. And the worst was yet to come: When I applied sunscreen, it started pilling. 

I tried the product morning and evening, different days, but unfortunately the experience did not change significantly. I also didn't feel the benefits of a typical hyaluronic acid lotion. I don't know if the Regu-Seb was too overpowering or the hyaluronic acid was just not at a high-enough concentration. 

In any case, I cannot not recommend Hyalogic Episilk Skin Perfecting Lotion, even to those with greasy and acne prone skin. Nowadays products exist (Your Best Face is a perfect example) that hydrate and care for this type of skin without compromising on texture and overall performance.

Ingredients in Hyalogic Episilk Skin Perfecting Lotion: water, Regu-Seb (argania spinosa kernel extract, serenoa serrulata fruit extract, sesamum indicum (sesame seed extract), cetearyl olivate and sorbitan olivate, methyl glucose, sodium hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), green tea extract (camellia sinesis leaf extract), xanthan gum, glucose, glucose oxidase and lactoperoxidase

    I have been using the Hyalogic Episilk Skin Perfecting Lotion with much satisfaction and success in terms of oil control and minimized pores as well as the fresh smooth feeling that last for at least eight hours. Indeed the Regu-Seb's slightly viscous formula with argania spinosa kernel extract alone can effectively regulate sebum production and reduce greasiness that is long lasting and improves skin texture and appearance. In addition, Regu-seb also contains serenoa serrulata fruit extract (from saw palmetto) and sesame seed extract known as ingredients for skin conditioning and soothing skin irritation. The skin perfecting Lotion is packed with powerful ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and green tea extract that delivers the results I expected from the Hyalogic Episilk line of products. The lotion's texture is neither runny nor thick and glides on smoothly on top of the Episilk PHA Seum. Unlike the reader/reviewer, I did not experience the "tight and glistening mask feel" nor "piling" after I applied the Skin Perfecting Lotion on top of the Episilk Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum, and allowed it to absorb for a couple of minutes before putting on my sunscreen (I wonder what sunscreen she used).
    For the affordability and pure key ingredients that work, Hyalogic Episilk Skin Perfecting Lotion works for me.
