Most Helpful Positive Review Hydrating, improves skin
I am happy with this product. As other reviewers have stated, it feels very sticky when used alone, which I am not a fan of; however, I use this at night after cleansing under a serum, and either a heavy moisturizer or oil and to my total surprise, I have actually noticed a difference in my skin in the morning - plump & hydrated! so, stickiness aside, I think it's worth it. Consider it a nice boost to other products you may already own. I also have been mixing it with my moisturizer for daytime and that eliminates the stickiness issue and has been working to stave off dryness for my combination skin this winter. A little bit goes a long way so it will last for a while.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's just okay
I received No7 Hydraluminous water concentrate free from pinchme to review. I used it for about a week before I decided to review. I do feel like it hydrates your skin but I don't like how it felt on my skin. I don't feel like it fully soaked in. I could feel this layer of product sitting on my face and it felt a bit tacky. I don't know how it would work if I was also putting moisturizer and makeup overtop of it.

I use this product after a rice water ice cube massage. I add moisturizer following this product, and my skin glows. Which is difficult when you're 65!

I wanted to love it but couldn't stand the stickiness.
It's a good product if you don't mind the sticky taffy feel.
This product saved my face!!!
Megan C. from Oklahoma
At first I was skeptical. However, after just two days my flaky, cracked, irritated skin transformed into smooth and hydrated skin! I have had an issue with excessive facial hair since I was 12, and have done everything in the book to keep it under control. The result of the maintenance was a large amount of damage to my skin. It dries out 3 hours after applying moisturizers, it's bumpy and flaky. My skin is painful for most of the day, and has been everyday for the last 16 year. I saw this product and decided to give it a try. Well, it saved me! I am no longer embarrassed about my skin. It stays hydrated all day long, it doesn't burn my skin, it has actually helped control my breakouts (not really sure why), my skin is SUPER soft, and it has given me back my confidence! I definately recommend this product for women with PCOS!!!
I really wanted to love this
Rachel from Pennsylvania
So I've had this for a little while now, I wanted to love it. I gave it two different chances. While I liked how it felt putting it on, it made me break out both times after a few days of using. (Two different times of the month) I suppose it just didn't agree with my skin type which is dry in the winter but oily in the summer.

The texture was amazing but it made my skin feel super greasy and oily after several minutes. Nice for dry skin but my skin is combination and it made my skin oilier.
Soothed away Winter's Harm in less than 2 Days
Peggah from Chicago
I get HORRIBLE dry skin on the left side of my face during the winter. It cracks up and breaks, and soothing and/or healing it has been difficult. Sometimes the salve burns my skin and makes it worse. Sometimes it just smells nice and does nothing. This No7 Hydra Luminous Water Concentrate didn't just sit on my face and soothed the dry skin, it healed my dry skin!
Cate from Las Vegas
I had never heard of this brand before so I wasn't sure what to expect and wanted to use this for a little while to share more than just my immediate impression. The scent is really pleasant and refreshing but also subtle. The texture is between a liquid and gel which makes it incredibly easy to apply evening. It absorbs quickly and leaves my face and neck feeling hydrated and smooth without the tacky, sticky feeling some serums leave. I love in a dry, desert climate so hydration is my number one priority in skin care. Overall, I'm really impressed and can't wait to try other products from this line!
Great moisture boost

Great moisturizer boost during dry winter season before applying my moisturizer
Great for moisture, lacking in everything else
Emily from Wisconsin
The only thing this did for me was help keep my skin hydrated while using a drying acne treatment during the winter.
I saw zero improvement in skin texture and tone, which was disappointing.
No7 Hydraluminous Water Concentrate sample
Mrsarndt13 from Hurt VA
I usually have pretty dry skin during the winter months and after using the No7 Water Concentrate after a week I could tell my face was more moisturized and actually had a glow. I used this along with my moisturizer and this definitely helped boost the moisture in my skin. It was easy to use with the dropper and it didn't take much to spread a long my skin. I also have to say my skin can be sensitive sometimes and I had no reactions. This is a great product for those looking to have a little more moisture in their skin.
Good drugstore option
fancylashesandlips from St.Louis, MO
I did not have any sort of reaction to this item. It did plump my skin and gave it a nice hydrated glow. I wish this was fragrance free but overall think this is a good drugstore option for those new to hyaluronic acid.
Not my favorite
Kkittybird from Ga
I used this before applying my moisturizer everyday and wasn't impressed. My face started breaking out a little and I didn't notice any difference in hydration of my face.
roxy from florida
my face feel more hydrated after a week of using it.
Goes on smoothly
Busymomof3boys from Reno, NV
This water concentrate went on my skin so smoothly. My face felt very soft after using. A little bit of it went a long way. One drop covered my face. The bottle is a easy twist off cap.
Roxie from Los Angeles, CA
I'm so happy I got to try this out! My skin is almost always dry, especially with the windy weather we've recently been getting in Southern CA so I've been looking for a new product to hydrate my skin. This product did not disappoint! I use it immediately after getting out of the shower on my face and neck and let it absorb for a few minutes before I apply moisturizer. A little goes a long way so this product should last quite a while. It leaves my skin feeling tighter, softer, and hydrated with a glow without looking oily. I'm so happy I found this product and can't recommend it enough!
Works great, even on oily skin!
lori_oh from New Albany, IN
This stuff is fantastic! I have oily, acne-prone skin so I'm usually a little cautious to use new skincare, especially anything that says hydrating, but this serum really surprised me. My skin looked and felt hydrated, but not greasy. I do get a couple of drier patches in the winter and this took care of them without compromising the rest of my skin. I also didn't notice any new breakouts, so I'd say it's pretty non-comedogenic. I'll definitely be putting this into regular rotation in the future!
Kate from Boston
I have really bad dry skin and my skin is very sensitive to different products. This product didn't really help with my dry skin (have yet to find anything that does) but I like how it went on and how my face felt after. Also, I was nervous about breaking out but it did not break me out or irritate my skin. I would recommend to others to try.
Jess from Utah
I put it on after washing my face then put moisturizer on. In the morning my face is so soft and supple
Christy from Marietta
I didn't really see much of a difference in my skin. It made me break out. I'm sticking to just my moisturizer.
Dimpizzle from California
This product made my face feel more hydrated after using it for only a few days.
Ashley471622 from Jerusalem Ar
This water concentrate felt like I was just applying water to my face but after a few days my face felt clearer and I noticed how hydrated and glowing it looked. This is my daily go to now it makes my face look so bright everyday
KayBee from DfW Texas
This is such an amazing product I am so pleased with it. Not only does it hydrate my skin its keeps it hydrated and does not leave a sticky feel. I've recommended it to some friends already as well as my husband to at least try it. Alot if products have not worked on my face since I have very sensitive skin (my face for sure) but this was so light and did not cause any issues for my skin.
Jen from Allen, TX
I gave this product a solid month of testing before writing this review. I used it before applying my moisturizer daily. I did not see any improvement in my skin.
Love this serum!
Rachel from Las Vegas, NV
I live in the desert and my skin has been so dry since I moved here! This serum cleared up the dry flaky patches on my face after only two days! It has a light, pleasant scent.
The serum goes on smooth and my skin feels soft and dry right away; a little bit goes a long way! As an added bonus, the bottle looks cool on my bathroom counter ;)
If I could have only one critique it would be this: the "medicine dropper" that is used to dispense the serum is super cool and makes me feel fancy but it's not super practical (would prefer a pump).
Overall I am very very happy with this product and I'd definitely recommend it!
Goes on smooth
Hlynn from Hartford
When I first opened this product it looks like the consistency that would go in sticky and remain sticky when on which is not pleasant. I was surprised that it just melted into my face and absorbed so nicely. I applied this before my moisturizer immediately after showers. My face has shown significantly less dry and flakey skin since starting to use this!
