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.

The Kiehls Hydro Plumping serum leaves skin with a nice texture and isn't sticky like some serums. It did seem to help my moisturizer absorb better, but I didn't see any affect on my fine lines or the plumpness in my skin. If it were sold only as a booster for moisturizer, it would be perfect, but it came up a little short on any of the other promises. It did not make my very sensitive skin react at all, either, which was nice!
only one time use did it all!!!

I only used the sample of it, and my skin was AWESOME the very next day!!!
I am ordering a big bottle right now.
I will buy again

Before the pandemic lockdown I used this everyday under my moisturizer, before primer and foundation. But now, several months later and working from home, I discontinued using it because it was part of my makeup routine. The past few months I've noticed my face just wasn't looking good: sagging and unhealthy. I couldn't understand why. Then it occurred to me: "My skin didn't look this bad when I wore makeup." So, I started using the plumping serum again under my moisturizer and -bam- my skin looks glowing and amazing again. I have very sensitive, dry skin and I have never had an adverse reaction to this. It seems, to me, to be very gentle but VERY effective. It's a clear gel-like formula, takes a few minutes to absorb, but over time has made a huge difference. Yes, it's expensive but it works wonders.

I am 36 and have combo dry skin and (before this product) break outs every other day with dry patches. Since I started using this, no more dry patches and no more breakouts. I don't even need to add a moisturizer if I put this onto moist skin out of the shower. It is amazing. It is life. I love it so much. A must have forever!!!

So I want to start by saying this product is everything. I have struggled with aging issues since weight loss surgery. It has effected the elasticity in my skin. This makes it very hard to find a product that works good for me. It took a good two weeks of continuous use to notice a difference. Once I did I was amazed. This product has now become a staple in my beauty routine. This product is must have and you haft to try it, it is truly amazing.
A definite must buy!

I was really excited to try this product out because I am always looking for things to improve the overall look at my face. I have a definite routine to my face care, but I was willing to try something new and see if it made a difference.
I definitely do not like things on my face that make it feel greasy more that feels like I have a lot of product on my face. So, it is really important That whatever I put on my face does not feel heavy.
This product did not disappoint. I love the moisture it gives my face without it feeling heavy. I also I'm grateful for any product that helps wrinkles. Though I don't have a lot of wrinkles, I do have some and it definitely is a plus to this product! It is a definite buy!￼￼
Worth a try

I received this product from Influenster in the mail right after purchasing my own bottle!
What its supposed to do: visibly plump skin to smooth appearance of fine lines and uneven skin texture, improve appearance of dull skin and dehydrated skin
For my early 30s skin, this serum didn't do anything drastic that I would run out and repurchase it. It did make my skin feel plump and soft, but wasn't a product that I would consider a "holy grail" in my skincare routine. Overall 7/10 for me.
For my sister's late 40s skin, it is her new holy grain. She got so many compliments of how great her skin looked. She said her skin looks more radiant and feels much more firm. She also loved how well it worked with her foundation. Overall 10/10 for my sister.
For reference, we both have non-problematic skin and I have the occasional hormonal breakouts. My face is combo/oily and my sister has dryer/slightly combo skin.

I really think is this a great choice for winter time, especially when skin is dry and in need of extra moisture! The product didn't have a lot of scent which I appreciated. It felt a bit grippy on my hands and but it smoothed out nicely on my face. It did take longer to absorb than I expected but my skin felt great afterwards!
Smoothing & Hydrating
michelle19 from undisclosed
I was initially skeptical of this serum as it contains dimethicone which has previously broken out my sensitive skin in other products. Fortunately, after using this for nearly a month it hasn't bothered me yet! I use it under my makeup before I apply my primer. You only need a tiny bit which will make the bottle last a while. I find it helps to smooth out my under eye area and the glycerin in it helps to hydrate my skin which is awesome. The texture reminds me of the cover fx photo finish primer. Packaging is nice and sanitary with a built in pump. Overall would recommend if in need of some extra hydration and smoothing under your eye makeup.

Thank you Influenster for giving me the opportunity to try the Kiehls Hydro Plumping serum. I was given this product to try in exchange for my honest review.
So to begin, I really really enjoyed using this serum. The consistency is a thick, gel, consistency which I like. You really don't need a lot of the serum for your face. I used one pump each time and yes this serum lives up to the claim of plumping up your skin. When I wake up in the morning after using the serum my skin looked healthier, skin was soft, and looked better than before I started using this serum. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Kiehls.

I've used a few different brands and find that this one works well as a plumping serum. The effects are subtle, but it goes on smoothly and isn't greasy. I like that I can pair it with other serums and moisturizers. This isn't my first choice for this type of serum, but it is effective.

This product was sent to me free by Influenster for my honest review!
Let me start by saying I have really sensitive skin and had absolutely no issues with this product. That's always a great first step for me. My skin is so dry in the winter and can use any extra moisture it can get so this lightweight serum was perfect. It comes out a very lightweight gel and becomes water like and absorbs into your skin as soon as it's applied. I have been developing deep marionette lines and I feel like this really helps plump them up. They say it's 15% Glycerin helps your skin produce it's own Hyaluronic Acid and I tend to think that's true since I stayed so moisturized. This is great for anyone who needs additional moisture or plumping. It has virtually no scent, which I like, and it takes so little I think it'll last me a long time!
I wanted to wait to review it this.

So..... I received the Kiehls Hydro Plumping Serum about a month ago. I wanted to "really" try it so I could give a full review. I do see results, although, they are temporary. Meaning if you don't use it for a day or two, your progress seems to "disappear". The bonus is, it makes my skin baby soft. REALLY soft. Which I love, especially this time of year. Another plus, is it isn't sticky or oily. under makeup. I would purchase this product again.
I'm a fan
morgenm3 from undisclosed
I received this complementary to try, and I'm a fan! I do feel like it does a good job of plumping. I use this night and day, and I can tell a difference. It's a bit thicker than a gel, but doesn't cause my skin to be any oilier than normal. It also goes well under makeup. I'll repurchase this!
Love this product!
karinaw1 from undisclosed
I started using this serum about 3 weeks ago and I have really enjoyed it. I used it in the morning and at night. I have noticed subtle differences in fine lines on my face. It has no scent which I like especially for a face product. I will continue to use this! In the morning it works like a primer.
Good product, save my skin at a dry winter
xiaoxuang from undisclosed
I love this product that gave my dry skin a hydrate touch in the winter. I like it does not have strong smell, and it's not sticky after apply.
heatherk54 from undisclosed
I took a few weeks using this product and I love it. Wasn't sure what to expect but it was awesome I work this product into my skin care routine and started noticing a really big difference on how my skin was much softer looked more hydrated and started clearing my skin up. I will be putting this in my skin care routine permanently from now on I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to test this product. This was sent to me complementary for testing purposes only￼ from my VoxBox. #InfluencerVoxbox #SkinCare #BeautyReview #LoveKiel's #Sephora #Instagram #Kiel's #Voxbox#Ulta #Free #Review #Beauty #MakeUp￼

I have been using this product for about a month now, and I am impressed! I do have some fine lines under my eyes and a few deep set smile lines and lines in my forhead. I noticed after a few days my fine lines under the eyes almost disappeared, my smile lines had more plump to them. After using this about a month I did notice that even my deep lines in my forhead are not as bad as they were. I will say this product is on the higher end side but it is well worth the money! I can not recommend this more out of everything skincare wise that I've used I have to say this made a whole world of difference! I added some pictures the one with wet hair was before and purple shirt was after and I can really tell the difference between the two!
Made me skin feel great.
melr9018 from undisclosed
It took me a while to write a review just because I was allowing myself more time to see the difference on my skin. Honestly my face skin feel amazing its smooth. And the small wrinkles I had are less visible. I would totally recommend this product.. #influenster thanks for allowing me to test ..
Plump it up
princessdiane from undisclosed
So to begin I started to use this product as directed. At first I thought wow my face feels soft, no difference. After a couple of weeks I can see the smaller fine lines fill in. So *Awesome,* I liked the smell of it not too strong not greasy at all. Made my face feel dewy soft. Overall 10 out of 10 for this product. Also once it did set in it did not at all dry my face out. Again 10 out of 10

Love it! I'm not a big serum person, but I've noticed a great change in how my skin looks. Just one pump after moisturizer and thats it! I will be repurchasing! Kiehl's
So I got this
aveenn from undisclosed
So I got this product in my box and was absolutely stoked to use it. I had heard so many great things about this brand. I used it and ended up loving it and I noticed a difference immediately after using it the first week! Such a great product super easy to use and very light on the face doesn't feel sticky! Love
aprils496a from undisclosed
I've been using this moisturizer for over three weeks now. It makes your skin with so soft without leaving it greasy. It has little to no scent and great for sensitive skin types. I would definitely recommend this product. It has became my favorite night time moisturizer.￼￼￼

Kiehl's Hydro Plumping Serum is really effective for dry skin. My dry skin felt silkier and hydrated. I have a couple of oily patches on my face that I'd be quit stingy as I applied the product over those areas but the rest of my face and neck/décolletage area I applied normally. My skin soaked up the serum completely. My fine lines lessened. It's fragrance-free too. I'd recommend this to my friends without a doubt. I'll continue to use this for sure!
Very light and hydrating!
reezer from undisclosed
I really love this product!! It looks super thick when you pump out but it melts on your skin. There's no sticky feeling afterwards. I usually use this at night and i wake up with my skin super soft and hydrated! I'm glad i received this complimetary bottle from Influenster!❤️
