Improves skin tone and deeply hydrates even dry, sensitive skin


Moisturizes, calms and replenishes

I was not familiar with the Sciote line, and I was eager to try their Sciote Super Moist Hyaluronic Serum ($75 in the shop). According to the website, Sciote's philosophy is a simple one: use the purest ingredients, be mindful of the environment and give clients the knowledge to make an educated decision about their skincare. 

This serum was recommended for all skin types, and Sciote highlights its moisturizing qualities due to the high concentration of hyaluronic acid and Methyl Sufonyl Methane (MSM). Hylauronic acid (which makes up 50% of the formulation) is said to draw moisture out of the environment and onto the skin’s surface. It holds up to 1000 times its weight in water and is lauded as the mother of all moisturizing agents. MSM is described as the purest form of sulphur and is an important treatment for dry skin. The product information highlighted a “fresher, younger, brighter, firmer complexion.”

With my sensitive, rosacea-prone, dry and “mature” (read: late 50s) complexion looking extra-fragile due to the harsh New England winter, I couldn’t wait to experience the promised hydration-boosting effects. My tired, red and weather-beaten face has been literally begging for help. This was perfect timing!

I used the serum as directed, after cleansing and before the use of facial moisturizer. It can also be used alone, and I tried both for my trial. The serum is a clear gel-like serum, cleanly dispensed in a pea-size amount from the pump bottle. I found a little goes a long way, as it did feel very moist and quite cooling (maybe the witch hazel effect?). I noticed that if I spent an extra moment with the serum “warming” on my hand, I liked the application better. I imagine that the cooling effect would be a bonus in warmer months, but not in January with our recent weather.

Application took a little getting used to as my face did literally feel quite wet. I don’t use water on my face, so this was a sensory adjustment! However, once I knew what to expect, I found my skin seemed to “drink” it in. Then I realized that some of the initial “wet” experience was the hyaluronic acid actually working and drawing in moisture to my skin!  Okay, now the wet sensation was quite welcome, and was really brief anyway. I found that after the serum absorbed, my skin immediately felt velvety soft and soothed.

After a solid month of use, I can report consistently positive results without any irritation (and my skin is extremely sensitive.) My facial skin is softer, very well-hydrated and without the blotchy redness that I usually have every winter. I feel like there’s almost been an anti-rosacea effect with this product, and my skin tone is definitely improved. I also noticed an improvement in the appearance of forehead and lip lines, as my skin looks less “dessicated” and has a plumpness to it, which is great. I’ve gone from raisin to grape! It honestly does feel like I’m giving my face a well-earned drink. I found this serum replenishing and calming, effective with or without additional moisturizer, and it worked well for use both morning and night. Needless to say, I’m now a hyaluronic acid convert, and I can highly recommend Sciote Super Moist Hyaluronic Serum. This is a keeper.

    Love this product!! I use it every morning after my vitamin C serum. Makes my skin look and feel so moisturized and calms the redness so quickly. I highly recommend it.

    Just a few mere weeks ago I was patting myself on the back for doing a good job taking care of my skin. I was surviving the harsh winter with smooth hydrated skin that even at times cooked dewy. Then out of nowhere that changed!! the continuous cold, dry air has made me look like I aged 5 years ( or more), my skin is dull and very dry and wrinkles are showing up. I have tried being extra diligent with my routine and even tried layering different products. Clearly I need something else in my arsenal and would be willing to give this a try.

    I'm 35 and starting to develop fine lines on my forehead and my skin is more dry than it use to be. I've never heard of this one before. I would love to try this product. I am always looking for new skin care facial products.

    I've never heard of this brand until now, but Judy's review makes me very curious to find out more and especially experience it first-hand. I'd just love to try the Youth Serum!

    Oddly this email hits my inbox just as I am at an impasse with skincare. What once worked is no longer able. With the onset of new fine lines, drier skin and some light sagging, my skin tone is changing. It's dulling, with some new, subtle red/ruddiness that is really making me look different... older. This product description is hitting home for me and I really want to try it. I still feel super young at 43. I want my face to reflect that!
