Most Helpful Positive Review Best Product Ever!
I've worked in the beauty industry for most of my adult life including as a clinical esthetician in a women's clinic. This product does exactly as promised. I was skeptical at first because so many skin care products promise the moon and you get no real results for the money you spent or the claims made by the skin care company.
I used this product in the morning after cleansing my face and using my toner. I applied it on half my face as I do any new product. This way, I can easily determine if the product produces any creditable difference. When I applied this serum the difference was immediate and remarkable. The lines around my eye virtually melted away! I was speechless. A serum that truly did what it claimed. I was so amazed I went to the department store and purchased this serum the same day. I've used most of the luxury over-the-counter brands as well as several from the dermatologist/med spa clinics but none compare to the Kiehl's line of products. I now use Kiehl's products exclusively. Try them...you won't be sorry.

I love most Kiehl's productions; however, I saw absolutely no difference in my skin while using this one. I used the entire bottle and, no change. Would not waste my money on this one, while there are so many other wonderful products to use.

This is my second bottle of hydro-plumping serum gel. It goes on very smooth, is easy to apply on the face, and dries quickly. I am pleased with the results.
love it, but don't like the bottle design
graycatcat from new york
I love the serum. It is not oily and has a great texture for year long. However, the bottle is vey hard to open entirely, there will be leftover and cannot be reached when I finish the bottle.
No visible difference

I bought this after i tried a deluxe sample that i got with another purchase (that i thought worked well). Have been using this for 2 months not and it really doesn't work. No difference to my skin.
Great, I like it

Didn't do anything to my skin.

This product didn't do the work as it stated. Too expensive for such a small bottle and did nothing to my skin.
Really like the results
JJ Cats from Florida
I like the way my skin looks and feels after using this serum.
Hydrating & Soft
Jazmine from undisclosed
This serum is super hydrating and gives my skin a natural glow. My skin also feels soft after applying.
Positively love this
Candy66cheryl from New York ny
I tried this product in October for the first time and it is fantastic. My face has never looked this hydrated. My family tells me I look younger every time they see me.
A little goes a long way and I think the price is reasonable.
Speeds Up AGING
Julie from Arkansas
This products contains Glycerol. The real name for Glycerin is Glycerol, identifying it for what it really is – an alcohol (-OL is the ending of alcohol group of chemical compounds). As any other alcohol, Glycerin is a degreaser – it absorbs lipids (oils), and removes them from your skin. Many people mistakenly think that because Glycerin has a sleek feel to it, it must be moisturizing. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. The sleekness of Glycerin is a result of the length of the molecules. They are much longer than regular alcohol (rubbing alcohol, for example) and therefore feel differently. To explain how drying Glycerin really is let's just mention that it has 3 groups OH, the degreasing groups, while rubbing alcohol only has 1 group OH. So, Glycerin is much stronger than rubbing alcohol in its degreasing, drying action. Strong collagen in your skin is what prevents skin from sagging and developing wrinkles. Collagen is built from lipids. So, your skin needs lipids to remain looking young and firm. Glycerin robs your skin of its lipids, removing them when you remove the product off your skin. Instead of helping your skin, Glycerin deprives it of much needed lipids and we see the collagen levels drop, creating wrinkles and sagging.

This is the first serum I've ever used (in my late 30s so they had me at "hydro plumping"). I've noticed my hydration levels are much better since I've been using it and have received multiple unprompted compliments from people on my skin. I'm also very impressed by how long the bottle has lasted me. Pleasantly surprised.

Only thing help with wrinkles around eye
Momomilk from undisclosed
I have tried many different eye cream and none of them makes my wrinkles around eyes less obvious. Then I got the sample of hydro-pluming and omgggg~ the wrinkles are still there but at least it?s not as deep

I'm a huge fan of all things Kiehl's, but this one fell flat for me. While I've only been using it for three days, I'm disappointed. Compared to other ultra moisturizing products I've used for the same amount of time (CeraVe Hyaluronic Acid Serum - which I know isn't the same formulation, but it is an ulta-moisturizing, hydro-plumping serum), this one seems lacking. It definitely melts nicely into my skin as if I haven't put anything on it. The bad part about that is, I can't tell I've used the product. I'll continue to use it, just to see if it takes more time to start feeling and seeing results.

I switched my whole skin care line over to Kiehls about a year ago. I love all the products I use but this serum is amazing!!! I brought it about a month ago (To use in addition to my current products) and I can see the difference this product makes. My skin looks younger and I don?t mind not wearing make up when using this product. It keeps my skin looking so even!! Highly recommend.
I would recommend this product
onthetrain01 from California
I have combination skin and I am in my mid 40's. I was looking for a product that helps to minimize pores and also has anti-aging property. I like this product because it's light and easy to apply. I used it with the midnight oil repair and ultra facial cream. I could see my skin is less porous.
Different than expected
Beachlvr from Washington State
I expected this to be a lot thicker; instead, I found it to be quite thin and almost watery once I warmed it with my fingers before applying it to my face. While it might seem like I'm criticizing it, I'm not because it ended up being light and yet moisturizing, smooth and not oily and quite appropriate for even the daytime. I actually enjoyed this product. It seems expensive, but you don't need much of the product to cover your entire face. I especially like applying it under my eyes. For me, this is an excellent product. Also, I have fairly sensitive skin and this did not irritate it at all.
Love the way my skin feels!
DDee from Los Angeles Area
I first tried this product when I got a sample packet of it. Before I?d finished the packet, I ordered it. It?s lightweight but makes my skin feel fresh and plumped. I use it alone, or with one of my Kiehl's moisturizers. My skin has never looked better
Monawendy from undisclosed
Although I liked the product overall the packaging is poor. The pump stopped working with 1/2 of the product still in the container. I had to take it apart and dig out all of the product and transfer it to a temporary jar.
My favorite serum!
kmdiver from undisclosed
Absolutely love this serum. I put this after my toner and before my other serum or oil. It's super lightweight, but makes a huge difference for my skin. I have normal to dry skin and I always make sure to use this during my daily routine.
Emily from Central Valley, ca
moisturizing, keeps skin plump and even. I use it twice a day with moisturizer and love it. I started to break out a few months ago so I started to increase some anti-acne meds which were drying me out, and adding this in really helped out.
Didn't work for me
KM from FL
I used this in combination with the blue oil from Kiehl's... plumped my skin, helped wit radiance but without the oil it gave my skin small breakouts.
A skin staple
Jamie from Chicago
After cleansing & exfoliating this plumped up my skin especially when I layered it under thicker IT Confidence in a Cream.
No wrinkles, no forehead lines & no crows feet!
I'm obsessed with this product!
ShannonBelinda from La Mesa, CA, USA
I bought this as part of a "pack" for dry skin back in the winter. I had never tried it before. So glad I did! In the morning when I get up (super early) for the gym, I splash my face with cold water and rub this stuff all over my face... my face DRINKS it up! It feels much more plump! I then use a light moisturizer and I am ready to go! Please don't ever discontinue it! Sometimes on the weekend, I can simply use this product and don't need additional moisturizer. I love that it is "light" but soaks into the skin enough, even for my dry skin. Have not had any issues with pores getting clogged using this product either.
Neha from undisclosed
highly recommend this product, it helped my skin/pores to minimize and soften the skin as well. I have gone through at least 8-10 bottles. My skincare routine is all Kiehl's products and I always get compliments on my skin, which was never the case before I started using Kiehl's products. I also drink at least 80 oz. of water daily, which in combination helps of course.
JustMe1970 from undisclosed
I absolutely love this product it has transformed my skin. I can?t be without it.
