Plant-based Glycerin: A renowned skincare ingredient that works as a moisture magnet and pulls essential moisture into skin. It is highly compatible with skin and also creates a “reservoir effect”, enhancing the water-holding capacity of the skin and ultimately helping to provide skin elasticity and plumpness and facilitates epidermal barrier function. The glycerin used in this formula is plant-based and can be derived from sources including palm fruit, rapeseed and coconut. .

First time using this product and the plumping feature caught my eye.

How does this product compare to Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate?
Thanks for the information
Arlene B on Jul 15, 2014
Best Answer: It's more for intense hydration and plumping then long-term line-reducing. The plumping serum does tend to soften lines though when you're wearing it.

i have acne prone skin and i use BP, do i use this before or after?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2014
Best Answer: If you are using a BP regimen do the following steps: gently cleanse, apply BP and let it fully absorb, apply Kiehl's serum and let it fully absorb, then moisturize. I'm also using BP for my acne (God send!!! I am so glad I started using it) and this is how I apply it. You always want the BP to be the first product after cleansing.

Do you use this at night? Do you use this underneath a moisturizer or SPF if you are wearing it in the day time?
A shopper on Sep 11, 2014
Best Answer: I think you could use this at night for hydration. I have other antioxidant or retinol serums I like to use at night. I prefer to use this under a moisturizer with SPF during the day.

is there alcohol in this? ANY type/form of alcohol?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2015
Best Answer: I love this serum because of its Vit. C and it's effects on my skin. I don't have the original flyer so I don't have an answer about alcohol but it doesn't act like it. I think Kiehls could answer that for you as they have access to that information. By the way, as I've said in the past, I'm Eileen not Mary, one of my sisters to whom I sent the product as a gift. She is still using it by the way.

Can this product be put around the eye area?
Shannon C on Apr 21, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, it can though I like the eye serum in the little purple bottle better. I found the Hydro-Plumping Serum Concentrate worked best around my mouth and on my forehead frown lines.

Is this suitable for oily skin types? The reviewers so far all seem to have dry or very dry skin =/
ashley j on Dec 4, 2014
Best Answer: HI, this is my experience with the product and I know everyone's skin is different. I am 30 years old and I have combination/oily skin. Certain products make my skin oilier than normal. I really love this stuff, makes my skin really soft and "plumped" without making my skin shiny (sometimes my skin will get oily but still feel very tight, this product hydrates it without the excess greasiness). Its a really light product, not heavy and its not scented or anything. I rarely wear makeup (grad student, no time) but when I do, I noticed it goes on a lot smoother and can skip the primer. I use it day and night and will order more when I run out. Hope this helps.

Should I use it between which steps?
My daily routin :
1. Clean my face
2.Powerful-strength line-reducing
4.Eye cream
Rebecca H on Mar 17, 2015
Best Answer: You should be toning before you put any products on your face after washing. The next products should be any serums you are using, then your eye creams, line/wrinkle reducers, then your moisturizer/SPF 30 for days or super moisturizer at night.

Is this used in place of a moisturizer? And when is it best used--morning or night?
Maria S on Jan 10, 2015
Best Answer: I use this in the morning in addition to a moisturizer. I usually use my moisturizer and wait a while before applying it. It is cold here in NY. I think this serum helps make everything look a little smoother.
