The benefits of hyaluronic acid in this anti-aging formula is that it deeply penetrates your skin, maximizing hydration and making your skin softer and smoother.
Fine lines and wrinkles are whisked away, redness is reduced and the appearance of pores is reduced. The result is that your skin is firmer and looks years younger.
Vernal hyaluronic acid serum can be used by all skin types, particularly if you want to reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles and freshen and brighten your complexion.
There are no clear instructions, except to use it twice a day. So it is most probably best, just as with all hyaluronic acid serums, tocleanse your face and apply your toner as normal (only if you use a toner) and then apply a few drops of the formula to your face and neck areas.
Make sure to apply the hyaluronic acid to your skin while it is still damp, so only pat your skin dry after you cleanse. Then once the formula has been absorbed into your skin (less than a minute) you can apply your moisturizer and makeup (if desired).

This is a pure hyaluronic acid serum formula and I have found no documented evidence of any other ingredients. Reading the reviewer comments however, one person has said that the ingredients are: Purified water, hyaluronic acid and benzyl alcohol (0.1%).
Benzyl Alcohol is usually added as a preservative and whilst it is a naturally occurring organic compound, it can also be manufactured from petrochemicals.
The EU has placed restrictions on using Benzyl alcohol – the maximum concentration in cosmetics cannot exceed 1% and if it is included in a ‘leave-on’ product then if the concentration exceeds 0.001%a, Benzyl alcohol must be included in the list of ingredientsb.
This formula apparently only has a 0.1% content of Benzyl alcohol, so it is ten times smaller than the maximum allowed in cosmetics.
Hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate not an actual acid and is known as a super hydrator, because it can absorb more than 1000 times it weight in water. It is a popular ingredient in facial serums as it gives your skin an intense boost of hydration and also helps to prevent your skin from losing more moisture.
This increased level of hydration helps to plump-up your skin and give it a more youthful, moisturized feel and look, and in the process, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
PROS: Around 80% of all customer reviews gave this pure hyaluronic acid serum anti-aging formula a 4 or 5 star rating. Positive comments include that their skin was firmer and fine lines were reduced.
Also, that it reduces acne, makes their skin look younger and feels softer and smoother. Many customers have been using this product for a long time and keep reordering it.
CONS: 8% of all customer reviews gave the Vernal hyaluronic acid serum a one star rating. One person stated that this formula gave them acne and a few others complained that all the positive reviews are fake.
From my point of view and comparing the reviews for this hyaluronic acid with others, many of the comments appear to be unsolicited., whilst many of the other serums clearly contain solicited reviews. So I am unsure why these few customers have complained about fake reviews for this formula.
