Review: M Picaut Hydra Miracle Serum
*This post contains press samples*
I’ll begin this post with a confession.
I have oily skin. I produce enough grease to run a fast food franchise. So I want to preface this review by saying that dryness and dehydration are not problems I struggle with on a regular basis.
Let’s talk about the product. Hydra Miracle Serum is a hydrating serum with hyaluronic acid, a couple botanicals, and a really odd glucosamine complex that I recall Mette (the founder) telling me is made from recycled shrimp shells. There’s a bit of lactic acid, minerals, but the main player here really is the hyaluronic acid. Now, like I said I’m a greaseball, but there’s no such thing as too much moisture and I find hyaluronic acid really works for me.
I’ve been using this serum nightly for say… three months (a little goes a long way, there’s still a fair amount left!) and… well. Remember what I said about not really having a problem with dryness? I definitely haven’t had a single flake or crack on my pretty little face all winter.
Is it thanks to the serum? Well, I think it helped.
It’s certainly made my skin look plump and smooth, not that I’m not babyfaced already. You see my problem. I think someone more prone to dryness might get more mileage out of this serum, but it’s done me good either way.
The texture is thick and gloopy, dispensed with a dropper. I do love this packaging. I find a lot of dropper bottles are kind of messy but you can really tell this is a luxury product from the quality of the bottle. And I love luxury.
But I’ll be honest, when I saw the price tag I was…a little shocked. That’s expensive. So if there’s room in your life for a $90 hyaluronic acid serum, go wild.
Pros: Hydrating, plumping, no fragrance.
Cons: Expensive as all hell.
Repurchase? Not on this paycheck!
