Contains cetyl alcohol, pota ssium sorbate, fragrance and very little hyaluronic acid.

Despite its name, this cream contains very little hyaluronic acid, it's not even one of its main ingredients. Instead it contains cetyl alcohol, sodium benzoate and some unspecified fragrance. Even though they're not some dangerous carcinogens, they may irritate dry, sensitive and delicate skin. Cetyl alcohol is an emulsion stabilizer and surfactant suspected to be a skin irritant and environmental toxin, pota ssium sorbate is a preservative known to be a skin irritant, allergen and human toxicant. In addition to this, this product contains some unspecified "natural aroma", it's unclear what exactly it is, where it comes from, and whether it's actually natural or synthetic. All the other ingredients are safe, though. When I apply this product to my skin, it does have a toning and firming effect, but at the same time sometimes it causes a slight burning sensation where it's applied. Overall, it's not a bad product, but if you have sensitive and delicate skin, it may not be for you. You can find better hyaluronic acid products on iHerb.

Not for me
Posted by Reviewer2145806 on Jun 02, 2013
Like the serum, this wasn't great for my skin. No noticeable moisture difference, maybe even a little drying. I have heard that if there isn't enough moisture in the atmosphere, Hyaluronic acid products can draw moisture from deep within the skin. I think that is what happened to me. Gave it to a friend who loved it so I rated it higher because of this.

I really haven't started using it regularily yet so it's too early to give a good evaluation but it doesn't seem to have any of the "bad" ingrediants

Good night cream for my combination skin but too rich to be used day time.

I can't tell if it's going to help wrinkles yet.
Not much difference

Have tried for a few days, but see not much difference in the deep set lines around the mouth.

Did not like very strong odor.
