Rated 5 out of 5 by from A PHENOMENAL product! I've been using Kiehl's for over 10 years because it alleviates my dry ashy skin all day long. So, when they introduced this latest innovation, I was blown way by how incredible this product works! This serum glides on smooth and quickly absorbs into my skin. Within 10 minutes, my skin feels incredibly hydrated, firm, smooth, and youthful! I don't lie about my age. I proudly tell people, I am 41. Quickly they give me astonishing looks of disbelief, and say, "WOW, You look 10 years younger! What's your secret?". "It's Kiehl's.", I say, with a smile :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works like a charm! Last year when Winter was almost over, my skin was severely dry. I had all these dry patches on my cheeks and using only a moisturizer did'nt really do anything. Went to my local Kiehl's store and they tested the level of hydratation of my skin, turns out it was only 19% (when it should be between 30 and 50). They advised me to use this product from now on and I've loved it ever since! It only has pro's in my opinion (except maybe the price - but totally worth it), my dry patches dissapeared and never returned. When they do the hydration test on me now when I go to a store it's always above 30.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing ever! I can't stress how much I love this product. I live in a desert and I used this is the morning and I had supple moistured skin all day! I couldn't get over how soft it was, I even got friends to touch my baby soft cheeks! It is a little pricey so I got the smaller version which I regret. the pump bottle is pretty good as well. When the product finished I popped the cap off to see how much wasted product was left. there was one application left over, which i think is pretty impressive. very happy with product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin feels like silk I thought I had already written a review but I don't see it. I really want to put in a good word for this gem! I got a sample of this product and couldn't wait to run back to get the full size. After 48 hours I was hooked. It has given such a lift to my aging skin. Fine lines are disappearing, wrinkles look so much better and it has a kind of cool hydrating effect when you put it on. I love this product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from The BEST!! This is probably my favorite Kiehl's product and that's saying a lot. The moment I put it on my face, I feel my face becomes super soft and moisturized. My face seems to just drink this stuff right up! I gave a sample to my sister, who has dry spots near her eyes and she loved it. She's tried numerous products, trying to find something gentle enough to use right near your eyes and long lasting but this is the only product that truly helps her problem. She doesn't need to continuously reapply the serum because it is such great quality. It's just the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute must have I feel naked if I don't use this stuff twice a day now. I used to just skip from toner to moisturizer. I was younger and not as wise. It smooths out parched or tired skin. It gives skin that dewy healthy glow, by hydrating and plumping! It doesn't feel greasy and it absorbs quickly. I'm 24 but I could swear this serum got rid of very slight wrinkles I was starting to form. The only other thing I changed in my routine when I added this was I switched moisturizers from a drug store brand to Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream, which I highly recommend as well. My pic is 4 or 5 months after starting using the products daily. I've been a 100% loyal K customer since and have tons of their stuff now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydration Feels Great I first started using this on a trip to Rome in the winter, where it is really dry and the water may be good to drink, but it is not so good for the skin when bathing. I had already tried a sample of this serum, so I knew it would save my skin and I found the nearest store in Rome to buy it. It was like magic the way it rescued my face on that trip. I have sensitive skin, and this product helps soothe and refresh. I love it and I have introduced other people to it because it works so well. I will say that it kind of looks and smells like something one might buy at a hardware store, but I don't even care, it has absolutely everything else going for it. It works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product Ever! I've worked in the beauty industry for most of my adult life including as a clinical esthetician in a women's clinic. This product does exactly as promised. I was skeptical at first because so many skin care products promise the moon and you get no real results for the money you spent or the claims made by the skin care company. I used this product in the morning after cleansing my face and using my toner. I applied it on half my face as I do any new product. This way, I can easily determine if the product produces any creditable difference. When I applied this serum the difference was immediate and remarkable. The lines around my eye virtually melted away! I was speechless. A serum that truly did what it claimed. I was so amazed I went to the department store and purchased this serum the same day. I've used most of the luxury over-the-counter brands as well as several from the dermatologist/med spa clinics but none compare to the Kiehl's line of products. I now use Kiehl's products exclusively. Try them...you won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This Serum! I have been searching for a long time to find a serum as effective on my skin as this. I am in my mid-60's and have always had normal skin, even in NM, but this winter has really wreaked havoc with it and I need some extra moisture and especially the plumping effect. With the first application, my skin felt immediately replenished and moisturized and is smooth to the touch again. I highly recommend it, especially for those who live in the desert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best for dry, thirsty skin I am an admitted serum junkie. I have purchased so many expensive ones in last few years and racked up the credit cards unfortunately. I have wasted much money. The ones promising to deeply hydrate skin all day usually dry to a tight finish because I have very dry, sensitive skin. Then....I opened my sample of the hydro-plumping serum. The texture is velvety and not greasy at all. It applied unlike any glycerin product I have ever tried. Instantly, it is absorbed but not so absorbed that it vanishes. The skin is left dewy and fine, dry lines are dramatically softened. I was upset at myself that I didn't stumble on this earlier because I am such a fan of Kiehl's products. I talked to a customer service representative when I accidentally messed up my order. She was so friendly, down to earth and anxious to help me. I LOVE KIEHLS AND PLEASE, PLEASE NEVER STOP MAKING THIS WONDERFUL SERUM!!!!! (Please never change formula either. It is simply perfect.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential Companion to the Dry Months of Winter 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from invisible velvet miracle My face was wan and lacked luster, like death warmed over. My eyes were framed by dry, flaky lines desperate to fold into wrinkles with every smile. Oily patches shone like headlights on my forehead, cheeks and chin. I thought I was a lost cause. I thought I just had dull, boring, wan, tired, aging skin. And then I tried this. It quenches and softens my complexion, smooths lines, and balances oily patches. My skin is luminous and refreshed, I look 10 years younger. I have that healthy glow that people talk about. My face has a new lease on life. The serum glides on smooth and wet, but is absorbed deep into my skin -- it doesn't feel like it dries on the surface. It honestly feels like my skin is youthfully restored from within. Like you know how people say to drink more water if you want nice skin? It's like instant 8-glasses-of-water-a-day, but injected directly into your skin for immediate results. And one pump is plenty. Honest-to-goodness, my boyfriend has commented on how beautiful my skin looks. He's so intrigued, he's considering Kiehl's for himself -- and he has naturally beautiful skin to begin with. I have introduced other products to my skin-care practice recently as well, but when it comes to texture and hydration, I believe this product is the vital component.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this - makes my skin happy My face hates winter and cold weather. It always feels tight, red, itchy....feels dry and flakes, and no matter what I put on it the flakes don't go away. I got a sample of this product w/ a recent purchase. This product definitely plumps up my skin and leaves it feeling hydrated. I think it has had an effect on my fine lines too. I have been a faithful user of the Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate, but I think I will switch, as this seems to have much more of an immediate effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydration of 100 oceans This is perhaps the most effective moisturizing treatment I've ever encountered. I would not, however, recommend this product to everyone, simply because of the price-point. If, for example, you're someone who feels like their skin is dry but you have not tried, say, ultra facial moisturizer (or any of its type-specific variations) or maybe something containing hyaluronic acid, I would recommend going that route before purchasing Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate. If you're someone who cannot seem to achieve a moisture balance, despite your use of notoriously moisture-packed products, this stuff is definitely for you. My experience: I purchased the 2.5 ounce bottle after a Kiehls expert recommended I take a 30-day challenge, resulting in a moisture-level increasing of 25% (from 29% to 54%). I made my grandmother (68), grandfather (72), mother (47), sister (26), and boyfriend (29) take the challenge, all of whom have dry skin, and they all saw similar results. The product video shows texture very well, so make sure you check that out. I definitely prefer using this in the morning as it combats my ultra-dry climate and leaves my skin feeling dewy and supple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from See the difference in your face contour I have dry skin that can get dehydrated at times. I was looking for something to go with my anti- wrinkle cream and the store associate recommended this for me to try. I tried the sample for a few days and I went back to get this gem! I can definitely see the difference in my face contour when I use this concentrate. It's very light weight and absorbs very quickly but don't be fooled to think that it's not moisturizing enough.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Results I love most Kiehl's productions; however, I saw absolutely no difference in my skin while using this one. I used the entire bottle and, no change. Would not waste my money on this one, while there are so many other wonderful products to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZiNG 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 5 out of 5 by from Miracle in a bottle! I use this stuff every morning under my moisturizer, and it's absolutely glorious. My skin literally drinks this stuff in, it's completely non-greasy, and it actually seems to help my skin absorb the moisturizer better, too. Love, love, LOVE this stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Are You Pregnant? I've been using this product for almost a year. I'm on my second bottle. Yes, you may initially bulk at the price, but the product lasts a loooooooong time! I thought I had beautiful skin to begin with before I started using Keihl's products, but after almost a year of using the serum and the sunscreen with copper my skin has been transformed! I'm forty years old, and I never had skin this nice in my twenties or thirties. The comment I hear often is that my skin glows as if I'm pregnant. This is high praise, we all know pregnant women (even if they're barfing a thousand times a day) emit an inner-glow in soft-halo;) I've never been a firm believer in using excessive potions and elixirs to combat ageing. Keihl's makes an easy routine for conservative people, new moms, and people that aren't just that into products, but want something that works.This serum is fast-drying and you can place your sunscreen/moisturizer on top of it immediately. My twin sister recently started using this serum. I can see the difference on her and what people are talking about when they say my skin glows as if I'm pregnant. She looks amazing, too. She's been in the Army 20 + years, without a skin routine because of the time commitment and the multiple steps -- She makes time now for (Keihl's) serum and sunscreen. It's easy. It's quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. I love the Hydro-Plumping Serum. It feels so moisturizing and soothing on my skin. I wish they made a size large enough to soak my whole body in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very hydrating I don't have dull skin but my skin used to be dehydrated. A Kiehl's representative recommended this serum to me. I've been using it for a few months now, and my skin is no longer dry! You can feel the hydration instantly when you apply the serum. A must-have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plump City! I was extremely doubtful reading the name of this serum. But, lo and behold, it has already worked wonders (it's been 4 days, and I'm already hooked). I picked this up and decided to make it part of a trio for my daily routine. And my skin already is clearer, smoother, and feels more... plump (okay, okay, I can just tell that it's more hydrated but "plump" is way too much fun to say!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not one to purchase expensive facial products, but the older i get the more I see the need to take care of my face. I was out shopping with a friend for a moisturizer because she was out and we found the Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum. From the first application I could feel the difference on my face. I've been using it for about 3 months now and not only do I see the difference but others have noticed as well. I even had my aunt call me yesterday to tell me that my complextion looked the best she had ever seen it and wanted to know what I was doing different. She told me that I had a very fresh younger looking glow. I'm very pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hydrating serum ever! So I've been using it for over three months now and I love it! I noticed the change in my skin immediately, it's a little pricey I feel but I don't think I could go with out it. Makes my skin feel so soft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Serum From Kiehl's I've only been using this product for about a week and I can already see and feel a difference in my skin. I use this in combination with 13 other Kiehl's products every morning and evening. I am a HUGE fan of serums. They absorb quickly and typically leave your face feeling hydrated and fresh. This serum is no different. I use about. 4 small drops on my finger tips and it's usually enough to cover my entire face and neck. A little goes A LONG WAY with this product. I absolutely love the way my skin feels and looks after I apply it. I probably use this in combination with more products than most people but you can reall use it after a good face wash and toner application. I would would also then add a moisturizer with spf in it after the serum has completely soaked into your skin, which will only take a minute or two.
