Dot & Key Hyaluronic Acid Serum Concentrate Review

Hyaluronic acid serums have been popular in the skincare industry for quite a few years now. Indian skincare brands have been including various hyaluronic acid serum in their range too.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring glycosaminoglycan which is present throughout the body. It can hold upto 1000 times the weight in water. It helps in plumping the skin, restoring hydration and moisturisation to the skin and also helps in plumping it up.


When used topically along with a good emollient cream on top it helps in sucking in the moisture from the cream and also prevents transepidermal water loss.

Harsh environmental factors such as sun damage, oxidative stress can lead to depletion of hyaluronic acid levels in the skin leading to a dry dehydrated skin.

Adding a topical hyaluronic acid serum helps in replenishing the lost moisture and promotes a healthy skin barrier.

Coming to the Dot and Key Hyaluronic acid serum concentrate.

Texture and consistency-

The serum has a runny water like consistency. It spreads easily and absorbs with few seconds without leaving any sticky residue on the skin.

Directions of usage-

This serum can be applied both during the AM and PM on cleansed damp skin. Follow up with a good emollient cream or a heavy moisturiser on top.

My experience with the product-

Dot and key comes with a wide range of products. Their hyaluronic acid serum concentrate was my first buy from the brand. The serum spreads easily on the skin and feels really light. The serum has a mild fragrance which I really like and is not overpowering. The serum doesn't feel sticky while application. It provides good moisturisation immediately after its application.

I apply a thick moisturiser after application of this serum. The finish of the serum is very smooth due to the presence of silicones. Just make sure that you are not allergic to silicones before using this product. Silicones are not bad in skincare as they act as an occlusive and prevent water loss from the skin but some people are allergic/ sensitive to it. The serum also contains vitamin C and E which works great with hyaluronic acid.The serum also contains ceramide 3 which helps in maintaining the lipid barrier of the skin.his particular serum can be applied along with your vitamin C serums to add an extra boost of glow to the skin.

Minimalist Salicylic acid + LHA 2% Face Cleanser review

Salicylic acid and Capryloyl salicylic acid (LHA) have been gaining popularity in the skincare industry for quite some time now. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) which has keratolytic properties that helps in unclogging pores making it suitable for acne prone skin types. LHA on the other hand is a derivative of salicylic acid which has an added fatty chain to make it more lipophilic and gentle for exfoliation. In today's post I am sharing my experience with the newly launched M inimalist Salicylic Acid and LHA 2% face cleanser . If you have read my previous posts you must know that most of the minimalist products worked really well for me except for the PHA toner so I was pretty excited to use its face cleanser as well. The face wash is sulphate free and contains both BHA and LHA for gentle exfoliation of dead skin cell layers. Clogged pores can lead to the formation of non-inflammatory (blackheads, whiteheads) and inflammatory acne. Hence adding such chemical exfoliat

Minimalist Rosehip Oil + VC IP-3% Review

When it comes to facial oil Rosehip oil has gained popularity for many years. A good quality cold-pressed rosehip oil has been used in improving the elasticity of the skin, strengthening the skin barrier, reducing fine lines and wrinkles as well as healing the skin. Rosehip oil contains various essential fatty acids and unsaturated acids such as linoleic acid, linolenic acid and oleic acid. These help in strengthening the lipid barrier of the skin making it stronger and firmer. It is also rich in components like vitamin C and vitamin A which makes it a potent antioxidant for reducing free radical damage on the skin and reducing hyperpigmentation.

Minimalist Multi Peptide Serum Review

Peptides are made up of two or more amino acids which are the building block of proteins.  Collagen is naturally present in our body which is made up of polypeptides. As we grow older the collagen starts depleting which can result in presenting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Adding a topical peptide serum or moisturiser in your daily skincare routine can delay these signs while promoting a healthy and youthful skin. Whenever you want to incorporate any topical peptide product in your skincare routine always invest in a good leave on product rather than wash off products. The reason behind it is that leave on products are there in contact with the skin for a longer period of time helping to show results more effectively. In today's post I am sharing my views on the Multi Peptide Serum by Minimalist . Minimalist is an Indian skincare and hair care brand that has come up with affordable serums and moisturisers with a good percentage of actives in them
