I was introduced to the Deciem brand when I started seeing everybody in the beauty blogging scene raving about the Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age serum. Hylamide is a brand that focuses on well-formulated skincare with mid-range prices under the umbrella of the Deciem group. I’ve actually finished using one whole bottle of this serum and I’m ready to tell you what I think of it. Before we begin, let’s check out its ingredients, shall we?
aqua (water), glycerin, hydrolyzed yeast extract, sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer, pentylene glycol, ethoxydiglycol, tamarindus indica seed gum, palmitoyl tripeptide-38, myristoyl nonapeptide-3, copper lysinate/prolinate, methylglucoside phosphate, hydrolyzed sodium hyaluronate, sodium hyaluronate, ahnfeltia concinna extract, saccharide isomerate, polyglucuronic acid, lactobacillus/ eriodictyon californicum ferment extract, pseudoalteromonas ferment extract, phospholipids, lecithin, salicylic acid, hydroxypropyl cyclodextrin, cetyl hydroxyethylcellulose, polyacrylate crosspolymer-6, hexylene glycol, sodium hydroxide, sodium citrate, citric acid, trisodium ethylenediamine disuccinate, leuconostoc/radish root ferment filtrate, potassium sorbate, ethylhexylglycerin, sodium benzoate, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, chlorphenesin.
How did the Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Serum fare?
Deciem claims that the Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age serum is a highly active concentrate of advanced hyaluronic complexes, next-generation peptides and biotechnological technologies to target rehydration, while improving the look of lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and textural damage.
Now, while I can’t vouch for the improvement in wrinkles or sagging skin (since I don’t have them) but I do think that this product works well as a hydrating serum. But the caveat is that I’ll need to use one whole pipette-full of product to feel this way. Therefore, I really do not understand why some people actually claimed that they only needed to use a few drops of this product for their skin to feel so hydrated. But well, everybody’s skin is different. I was also testing a few other hydrating serums in rotation with this product to see which one I like best. The thing is, I do like this product. It works nicely. However, I’m not in a hurry to repurchase it even though I had already finished using it. It’s kinda like the guy that everybody says that you’ll be great together and you actually do enjoy his company, but there’s not much sparks or fireworks between the both of you, you get what I mean? Heh..
Where can you find it?
You can buy it from their official website. It retails at US$49 (30ml sized).
