Nokie’s review:
This is one of my favorite serums so far! When I try new products and it breaks me out, I run to my Holy Grail products:
Indeed Serum & Nip + Fab. The combination just makes my face glows!!!

I actually heard about the 2 products from a blogger and she recommended tons of products. I decided to try out the 2 because it was affordable AND it was something I can grab without having to order online or drive a distance for it.

Nip + Fab review can be found by clicking here!

Indeed laboratories hydraluron moisture serum is made in Canada. Indeed Laboratories products are sold in Canada drug stores and in America, it can be found at some Walgreens or online.

The box is hot pink and it’s such an eye catching color. Actually, all of their boxes are bright and eye catching colors. The product comes in a simple white tube with clear cap and gray writings, nothing fancy. The product itself is clear light gel textures. No fragrance smell. The product can get a bit sticky if put too much, but it absorb quickly to the skin. My face is thirsty as it loves it when I give some good loving! Just like my body, sometimes I get dehydrated and weak if I don’t get enough water. As for my face, sometimes if I don’t give it enough “water” base products, it gets dry and flaky… even breaks me out if it’s too dry due to dead skin cells.

First time using the serum, my face was glowing. 4 weeks of using it, my face was clearing up from crazy adult & hormonal acne. 6 months in to using … my face is bright, hydrated and glowing!!!

Before I bought the products and read some mixed reviews about it. Most negative reviews I read so far is the fact that it is not moisturizing enough or doesn't have other benefits like anti-aging, antioxidants, etc... I completely understand. However, it is a serum... it's used before moisturizers or other products. I like the fact that it doesn't have a lot of chemicals and focus on one thing... Hydrating. Which a lot of us needs even with oily or dry skin, hydrating the face properly will reduce excessive oil and also help with dry and flaky skin. I like to do the "layering" system for my skin care routine... In Asia, they use the layering system. For example, if they need hydrating or whitening or anti-aging, they would have products that specialized in it and layer one after another. I know it may seem a lot and for some of us, yes... it can be. But once the results are shown... then spending extra 5-10mins on a good skin care routine is so worth it.  There are a lot of products that offers all in one which is a great idea but sometimes I personally find it's too harsh on my skin. Don't get me wrong... some products works well and gentle enough for the skin but it comes with a cost!!! Having said that, I am still exploring my options and trying out stuff but so far, I'm seeing a lot of improvement with the skin care layering system. If my skin reacts to a certain product, it’s easier for me to eliminate the ones that doesn’t work and keep the ones that are good for my skin.

Here is how I use this product with my layering system. It doesn’t take more than 5 to 10 mins depending what I feel my face needs:

Makeup remover
Oil/balm cleanser
Foam/gel/milk/cream cleanser
Scrub/Exfoliate (2-3 times a week)
Toner: *Recently I’ve been using Nip+Fab every day and it's considered exfoliate because of the Glycolic Acid.
Toner/Softener - (Asian products are consider toner as a softener where it helps soften the skin)
Essence/Serum - (Indeed laboratories hydraluron moisture serum)
Treatment - Any whitening/ anti-aging/ acne or whatever
Moisturizer - Any whitening/ anti-aging/ acne or whatever
Cream (If needed)
Sleeping Pack (Night only - 2 to 3 times a week)
Sun Screen (Morning only - everyday!!!)
