Is this my favourite hyaluronic acid serum I’ve ever used. Yes it is!
Serum Repair from Dr Sebagh is one of those cult products I’ve been wanting to try for a while, it’s been voted “Most Magical Perfector” by Cosmopolitan and “Best Skin Plumper” by Harper’s Bazaar. I am wary about these things though, as sometimes the cult status is only achieved by clever marketing and not by the actual product being amazing.
Dr Sebagh started his career as a facial plastic surgeon 30 years ago. He moved to London and opened his practice, pioneering the use of hyaluronic acid fillers, Botox and vitamin injections. He went on to develop his Advanced Ageing-Maintenance skin care line which uses a high concentration of active ingredients for more effective skin repair and rejuvenation. I do tend to trust a Dr led range, especially one with such a loyal following, I would just like to be able to afford more of his products.
So, what are the magical ingredients? It contains hydrolyzed collagen (collagen that is broken down into smaller particles, therefore, more easily absorbed) and Sodium Hyaluronate (this is a salt form of Hyaluronic Acid and has a lower molecular weight so it’s more easily absorbed into the pores, it attracts and binds water leading to plumper skin). I was really surprised at how thick it is, the bottle has a pipette dispenser and at first I didn’t think I’d managed to pick up enough product, but boy was I wrong. You literally need one drop to cover your face and neck, or a couple of drops will do the chest area as well.
Use the Serum Repair on a cleansed face and prior to moisturiser, morning or evening, or both. Personally I never put Hyaluronic Acid on a dry face, I feel that it works better if the skin is slightly damp. I’ve been using this for 3 to 4 weeks now and am seeing beneficial results. My skin had been feeling dry and unhealthy during lockdown, but now is looking plumper and has lost the dryness. It’s fairly pricey at £69 for 20ml, but do what I do and look out for the high-end advent calendars from such as Net-a-Porter or Liberty, and literally save hundreds of pounds.
