Rated 5 out of 5 by Liamsma didn't know how good it was until it was gone!
I bought this product over the winter and really loved it. I have extremely dry skin and using this and then the rose arctica cream and my face would feel incredible even through the harsh Boston winter. When I ran out mid-July, I decided not to re-buy as I thought my skin would be fine in the summer. I was so wrong! I noticed my fine lines re-appear and my skin texture is not nearly as smooth. I just went yesterday to buy some more and my face was very happy this morning. I will not go without it again!
Rated 5 out of 5 by cdiva I love this product. Looking forward to my first purchase. I could see a change in my skin immediately. It looked softer and younger.

The texture is only like I've never experienced! As soon as you rub it in it liquifies. My dry skin instantly drinks it up. It like a glass of water for you face! I highly recommend!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by nygrlnca Just average
I expected so much from this as the reviews were raving. However, I have used it a few times and have not seen much of difference...plus it is really expensive. I love Kiehl's products but this didn't make my favorites list. Overall it is not terrible but I need more from the product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by naty1982 Miracle syrup
I had a really bad rash on my face caused by dryness; I tried every expensive cream on the market, yet nothing works. After 1 ½ year with this issue my face got really damage and started looking really dull and dry making me look 10 years older. I got this syrup with not hope whatsoever, but after 3 days Boila!! I started seen changes I wish I could upload a picture! I don’t have to fix pictures before I post them anymore because now I have a natural glow! I am really happy with all the products I had so far. I also combine this with: Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Creamy Eye Treatment with, Creme d'Elegance Repairateur

This is a first use review. I'm looking forward to the possibility of "new life to dull, tired skin", but it's not a miracle. What I can say is that the superficial dryness in spots in which my exfoliant, moisturizer, eye cream were not effective are very relieved today.
I have always had mildly to very sensitive, dry skin over my entire body. I started using and trying heavier lotions and creams in my teens. I gained an esthetician license in my 20s and sold cosmetics and skin care over the counter for several years. As a result, these "serums" have always seemed dubious. However, with hormones and age, my skin is different now. I live in the Northeast where we've had a pretty brutal winter that isn't entirely over as of this post. I am compelled to give these anti-aging products a try. I am a longtime fan of Kiehl's.
At this stage, I am not very concerned about general wrinkles (thank you, Granny and only an occasional interest in suntanning during my lifetime). But I get periodic breakouts on my forehead and chin while I have tiny lines and superficial flakes now under my eyes that present horribly with foundation and concealer as well as these dry patches in various areas of my face.
This Hydro-Pumping Re-texturizing Serum seems to 'boost" my moisturizer and maintain a supple feel throughout the day. My skin feels better, from within and by touch, than it has in the past five winter months.
I'll make a point to follow up in a month or so. My winter skin is different from my Spring/Summer/Autumn skin. But I'm feeling like this is a valuable product to keep in my regimen even if it doesn't alleviate the appearance of "dull, tired skin".
Rated 5 out of 5 by buckybadgerfan Love at first use!
I have never written a review on any purchase or product in my life but I felt I had to write one on this product to share how amazing it is. I received this as a sample when going to a free standing store in Minnesota. I am a regular Kiehl's customer and just hands down love every product but I have tried a lot of other (non Kiehl's) products that focus on skin's texture and never had any "whoa" results. Until this one. The next morning after one use I could not stop looking at my skin. And of course its been a full week and my skin has never been more clear. No more acne, my skin is smoother, my acne marks are starting to fade, and my skin just won't stop glowing! I am so happy Kiehl's came out with such an amazing product. Just found out about it last week because unfortunately I do not have any Kiehl's locations around me. Wish I would have known about this product sooner! Just absolutely in love!

I've gone through 2 bottles of this product now, and this product works.
Despite having oily skin, my face tends to feel tight and parched during the colder months of the year. I use 2 pumps in the morning along with the Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate, and my skin drinks it up. It has increased skin comfort when it's especially bitter out, and my skin looks flawless.
I use it occasionally in the evening when my other nighttime products allow for its incorporation, and I wake up looking plump and hydrated.
I wish I had this product when I lived in Los Angeles! I'm not sure if I will continue to use this product through the humid summer months, but for now, it's a staple.
The only downside I can think of is that the bottle doesn't allow one to remove the lid and try to get any stubborn product out at the end. We all know that pumps don't tend to empty bottles all the way, and it would be nice to have some idea what's left inside after nothing more comes out of the pump.
