Where to purchase: Available on The Good Molecules Website HERE
What is it?: ”A lightweight hyaluronic acid serum that draws moisture into the skin for deep hydration.” – so basically a hydrating serum (contains 1 form of HA).
Description: ”Replenish your skin’s moisture content with Hyaluronic Acid Serum from Good Molecules. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, this water-light serum draws moisture to the skin for long-lasting hydration. With just one use, skin appears smooth, supple, and well-hydrated.”
Good for: Dehydrated skins / skins that want plumping up. Also sensitive skins as this doesn’t contain EO or Fragrance.
Packaging: Glass bottle with a dropper. It picks up product fine, not like the Niacinamide serum dropper.
Directions: ”Apply a few drops in the morning and at night before oils, creams, and moisturizers. For best results, apply to damp skin. Let absorb for 30 seconds before continuing with your routine. Suitable for daily use.”
How I use it: I apply this in the AM or PM, after toning. I apply it before my toner has dried. The toner I currently use is from Muji
I also mix this into creams to boost their hydrating effects.
NOTE: Video unboxing products from Good Molecules and Live Swatches of them:

Texture: It’s not sticky or gloopy! It’s thicker than water, but very close to it. Dries down quick too. I thought this would ball up/bill under my SPF like crazy, or my foundation, but it was fine! I’d say this is lighter than the Niacinamide serum in texture. And definitely lighter than the Niacinamide brightening toner.
Doesn’t take long to dry down into the skin.

How long have I been using this?: For 2 weeks
The Effect?: Hydrates my skin without a horrible stickiness or balling up. No more and no less.

What I like:
- Simple and hydrating
- no fragrance
- no EO
- Easy to mix in with creams etc.
What I don’t like:
- Not a huge fan of the packaging (prefer a pump – and my Niod pump doesn’t fit)
- If more Hyaluronic acid forms were added (like the Niod MMHC) – to ensure hydration into the deeper levels of the skin as well as sitting on top.
- Perhaps if other components were added (like peptides, Niacinamide or vitamin C added).
NOTE: I did A Youtube Video Explaining HA Serums and I compared the Niod MMHC With the Good Molecules Hyaluronic Acid Serum!
Overall Rating and Conclusion: 3.8/5 – I would give it higher if it had more forms of HA or added niacinamide, vitamin C in it. But it does do the job however and I’m so happy that this doesn’t have EO or fragrance in it.
Would I repurchase?: If I couldn’t get the Niod MMHC or the Good Molecules Niacinamide Brightening toner, then yes I would for this as I think the texture is better than the Ordinary’s HA serum!
