Booster Serum with Hyaluronic Acid by Novexpert, $57/1 fl. oz.

For more information, visit http://www.novexpert-lab.fr/en/catalogue/produit/booster-serum-with-hyaluronic-acid.53.html

What I liked most about the product was its: Texture, or product feel when applied.
Comments: It is a thin serum, which when applied, feels tight on the skin. You really feel it working its magic. As an FYI, it does contain hyaluronic acid.

This product met my expectations.
Comments: My face felt lifted and "tighter" when using this serum.

I followed instructions for this product: Faithfully, or to the letter.
Comments: They offered three options for usage. I chose to try using this alone so I could gauge this product solely (it can be used under or mixed with night cream). I used all over my face and neck. I used this alone in my night routine for 60 days.

If I was making this product, I would change its: Nothing.
Comments: I think that this serum is the real deal and there is nothing that I would change.

I would recommend this product to a friend: Enthusiastically.
Comments: This serum was easy to use. Many women in my age group are looking for simple and quick tightening fixes, and this serum does the trick!

I am _________ this product: Running right out to the store to buy.
