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.
Most Helpful Critical Review No Results
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.

Have not seen a difference in my face with this product. Maybe I need something stronger. Lol

Go for it!! from a tough critic

I love this serum and the texture. I was hesitate on purchasing since it's a new product, but I am extremely satisfied. Lines around my eyes and forehead have significantly decreased and not even placebo decreased but legitimately deminished. Very happy with my purchase and will purchase once my bottle runs out! Love the portion size of the bottle too

Super hydrating, soft feel, not irritating, water..
Helps Dry, Flaky Skin!
cpaige88 from Chicago, IL
This stuff works. Living in Chicago, I was suffering from super dry, flaky skin during the cold weather. Using this after I wash my face, before my moisturizer works like a charm—no flakes and no tight, dry feeling. When I ran out for a few days, I noticed my skin felt drier again. My only qualm is that I believe the bigger size dispenses more than the regular (smaller?) size, which I wish weren't the case because I bought it to last longer than the OG size. However, I've found I can just use less than a pump to get the right amount and conserve the serum.
Hydro-plumping Hydrating Serum
Felicia F from VA
Really love this product. Have been using it for over 2 years and can see a difference in my skin. My only complaint would be that there needs to be an indicator on the bottle or a clear spot on the bottle to let you know when it's getting low. I am having to order base on the weight of the bottle and that's getting a little annoying.

Jury is still out
Laura K from Stevensville MT
This a newer product to my Khiels routine. I like it but not sure about the plumping aspect. Jury is still out.

It makes your skin extremely soft, l started with a sample and was hooked.
A trustworthy friend….
Mavs from Cambridge, MA
Kiehl's always comes through for me! I can rely on their having the hair and skin care products that have been part of my personal health and beauty routine for more than 30 years. And, especially over the past two years when in person shopping has been difficult, their online ordering and delivery service has been a godsend. Their periodic sales, and free samples of their ever expanding product line are simply icing on the cake! Thank you, Kiehl's, for being such a trustworthy friend.

This product does a fabulous job hydrating my skin.
Silky smooth goodness!
59 in Ohio from undisclosed
This is such a unique product! It is both moisturizing and smoothing and acts like a primer as well. I use it on my face, neck and hands. I liked it so well, I bought two backups. I'm really picky too and omg have I tried a lot of products over the past year. This is a permanent part of my routine now!

Good moisturizer. But a little expensive..... Apply to the face, and then tap it lightly to absorb it. So then more effective.
Phbk2 from Brookyn
It goes on smooth and hydrates well! The perfect amount comes out when you pump.
Artenig from Arizona
I'm extremely surprised to see a few negative reviews! This serum is absolutely amazing ! I'm very picky and use only good products and this one quite surprisingly good! Very highly recommend
Love this Serum...

My go to right out of the shower...very light and perfect moisture
Softer, Noticeably Plump Skin!
KProve from Mission Viejo, CA
A little bit goes a long way, and this product feels so cooling and soft upon application. Not sticky, unscented, and leaves my face looking younger and firmer. I will definitely keep this routine going!
One of the best products I have ever used
Phynn from Jackson, MS
This product is fantastic. The texture is smooth, goes on like butter, and leaves my face moist, yet not greasy. I wouldn't call it a serum, though, I would call it more of a moisture bomb.
Not hydrating in the least
Delamaine from Reston, VA
I use mostly Kiehl's products for all my skincare now, but for winter I wanted to add a layer of moisturizing serum under my SPF. This had good ratings so I ordered it. Unfortunately it does not feel good at all. The texture is very watery, and when I apply it, it begins to feel drying almost instantly. If I hurry, and get my SPF (purple jar) on immediately, it feels better, but still not as good as I'd expected. I am going to go back to a designer serum I used to use in the 1990s which is much better.
I'm lost without it!
Teentz from Minneapolis, MN
I started using Hydro-Plumping Hydrating Serum when it was recommended for my at the Mall of American store. My skin is very dry and when I wash my face on apply to serum, I feel fantastic! It instantly makes me feel that my skin is moisturized. I'm 70 years old and I have been using it for about 3 years!
KayDo from North Carolina
I have aging skin and I love how hydrated and smooth my skin feels when using this! It does seem to have a plumping/smoothing effect because I've been using a similar product from another brand that doesn't have the same effect. I checked this out on EWG's catalog and it meets my criteria, as I try to stick with cleaner products free from hormone-disrupting junk. I love love love this product!

This serum hidrates beautifully skin without leaving it oily or greasy! It is specially useful in dry/humid weathers or winter when skin really needs a hand!
