Most Helpful Criticism
I've tried a lot of hydrating serums due to my dry skin and while I liked this one, considering the price, it didn't work better than other serums I've tried and it wasn't all that hydrating either
was alrightI've tried a lot of hydrating serums due to my dry skin and while I liked this one, considering the price, it didn't work better than other serums I've tried and it wasn't all that hydrating either
it is okIt is very light and has fresh smell, but it is not my one. I have sensitive and dry skin. It is too light for me, even in summer. I won't purchase again. It suits oily skin I believe.
Ok but not worth the priceThis serum is quite sticky and difficult to blend on face at first. It eventually dries down and is quite nourishing. Not oily at all. Good for sensitive skin! The bottle design is terrible, the opening is too small and the dropper pushes product over the sides. I typically wouldn’t spend this much on a serum so this was a bit of a waste. Had to be really careful with application.
LightThis serum is very moisturising without sticky and greasy. Perfect for all season. Definitely repurchase.
Worth the try!Love it! The serum that makes you hydrated even without using any moisturizer. Happy to discover this!
Sticky residueFelt a bit sticky after applying which was okay at night but not in AM
very lightweight but suits for winter timeA bit sticky on my skin, and I prefer using it in winter, more smooth. As a serum, the price is ok, but a bit expensive as a moisturiser. I wear double layers in winter and it uses quite quickly. It is good coz it never irritates my skin.
Good for oily skinA very nice and lighter oil. If you are quite oily, or the weather is warm, sometimes i just apply this at night and let it soak in and go to bed.
Bit stickyI am a huge fan of aesop products but not this one, found it to be very sticky
didn't do anythingthis didn't do anything for my skin. it absorbs fast but after using it for weeks, I didn't notice a difference in hydration or texture
Great alternative to cream moisturisersThis is a great moisturising serum. It goes on really lightly, doesn’t pill when you add layers of moisture or makeup on top. I imagine it would work well in humid climates too. It doesn’t make me shiny like some other moisturisers do.
Light and moisturizingThis serum is super light and absorbant. It is great for days or nights that you feel like something light on your skin. I have combination skin and when I sleep with it over night I feel like I wake up with my skin very clear and dewy. Very happy with this serum. I would suggest a heavier Aesop serum for use under make up.
Not the serum for me!I purchased this to use in summer when my combination skin tends to be quite oily and my regular moisturisers are too heavy. I thought the quantity of this product for the price was quite reasonable and decided to give it a go. Unfortunately this is definitely not the serum for me- my face felt a little but sticky/filmy after using, it didn't seem to sink into the skin like other serums do. I also didn't really find it effective at hydrating. I would recommend to try this only if you have quite oily skin and don't intend on wearing makeup or anything over the top of it.
Oily skin friendlyReally good for oily skin. I feel like creams are usually thick on my skin, so this is a great alternative. The size (100ml) is really good too
disappointingThis product was disappointing for me, given the price point I expected a sustained hydrating finish but it was much too lightweight and to be honest I've tried better hydrating serums for way less
too lightI found this too light to be used on it's own. It's hydrating but not more so than other serums I've tried that are less pricey
Hydrating and lightweightLight on sensitive skin, lasts overnight and not too tacky on skin. My skin Freaked out a little when first used due to oil base. But skin adjusted after second week.
Perfect for oily skinI have struggled for ages to find something to that didn't congest my pores and leave my face feeling greasy. This is hands down the best skin care item I've ever owned.
Extremely hydratingI find this to be extremely hydrating. It's perfect for everyday use. It is, as it says, lightweight on the skin. The only downfall is the price, but I think it's worth the investment.
not sticky at all!I would never use serums because I found them too sticky for my liking, but this one is so different! It's so hydrating for my skin and never leaves it feeling oily, highly recommend!
Hydrating! No sticky residue!Really like this product as i dislike 'serums' that leave your face feeling clammy & sticky. Feel refreshed after using this one
yeslightweight and absorbs into my skin quickly
Oily skinThis is good for oilier skin - lightweight hydration. Might not be hydrating enough for dry skin as it provides less hydration that more heavy duty serums
Heavenly HydratingI love this serum it is lightweight and very hydrating. I love the feel of it and my skin looks great after using it. I highly recommend this serum to all my girlfriends (and guy friends)
Nice and lightweightI find this super hydrating. It leaves my skin feeling amazing. Will definitely purchase it again, I feel that it's been a great investment.
So lovelyLightweight and breathable moisturiser for mattifying. Gorgeous primer also! Highly recommended for oily/problematic t-zone area
GreatThis is a very light serum and texture is quite watery which makes so so easy to absorb into the skin. I have combination skin and often in air-conditioned place which makes my skin quite dry but yet oily. I had used it day and night under a moisturizer in the last 4 months and really like it. It keeps my skin hydrated without the greasiness. Excellent to use in humid weather.
very hydratingi got this as a sample and i was in a search for a nice hydraulic acid serum. i found out that this can be used as one. it is super hydrating for my dry skin. totally recommended.
Good for dry skinThis soaks right in and makes my skin feel so hydrated!
As it says, lightweightThe serum is too lightweight for my skin, especially around the cheeks. However i imagine that it would be a great product for people who prefer serum that does not feel sticky at all after applying it onto the face.
Idea for oily skinLightweight and breathable moisturiser for mattifying. Gorgeous primer also! Highly recommended for oily/problematic t-zone area
Idol for oily skinNon greasy at all, quick absorption and never clogged pores. This is one of my favourite products in summer. The moisturizer after is no needed.
Instant hydrationAbsorbs fast and instantly hydrates for soft skin
AESOP LIGHTWEIGHT FACIAL HYDRATING SERUMMy face feels smoother, well-balanced, well-hydrated...and my vanity table is thankful for its presence (aesthetically speaking!)
Not the bestThis serum is nice. It's VERY light and absorbs fast into the skin. It didn't really provide me with lasting hydration though and I didn't see much of a difference after weeks of use, so not sure if I will repurchase

hydratingI love this serum it is lightweight and very hydrating. I love the feel of it and my skin looks great after using it. I highly recommend this serum.
Great lightweight formulaI’m really picky with serums - well all skincare really. I hate residue or greasy feelings, and have a sensitive sense of smell. This serum is great though - it’s light, easily absorbed, and layers well under foundation.
For ref I have 43 year old dry skins
GoodIt's lightweight and absorbed very fast! Without any stickness! I'm using as daytime serum. My skin look calm and moistured recently. I will be using it continuously!
Works wellThis is a very light serum and it is a fantastic formula for oily skin types though for my dry skin i have to use a moisturiser on top as it isn't enough for my dry skin. Though it is amazing is increasing the texture and suppleness of my skin which is why i continue to use it. Highly Recommend this for all skin types.
Beautiful and hydrating!This is hands down the best hydrating serum I have ever tried! It's beautifully lightweight yet insanely hydrating and it smells divine! I live in a humid climate and needed something light for my oily skin as cream moisturisers tend to be too heavy and never sink into my skin, but this serum, although can feel a little sticky directly after applying, is plumping, feels amazing and after it dries it leaves your skin feeling so soft and super hydrated! I would 110% recommend this serum for oily skin, if you live in hotter climates and don't want to sweat off your lovely moisturisers, or are just wanting something lightweight to give your skin care routine a bit of a change up from cream moisturisers. This serum is simply beautiful as all products from Aesop are!!
Lovely smellLove this product, use it under my moisturizer before bed. It is pricey but a little goes a long way!
Light hydrationThe aloe Vera is cool and light. Most will need to use a moisturiser over the top.
Lightweight as describedGot a sample pack and i absolutely love the smell of it! It is lightweight as described and does the hydration job properly. However with the same price you could probably get a better product by other brands. To me this is just a luxury moisturising product for people with a few extra bucks to spend (treat yourself!).
Great ProductI have oily combination skin and my skin is easily congested when using creams, so I like to use oils and serums. This serum feels great going onto the face and I did see great results. It is quick thick but works well with the translucent serum.
After purchasing the 3rd bottle of this serum I felt like my skin got used to this product and stop working as well, I changed to the Aesop Fabulous Face Oil and I'm loving that product.
slightly hydratingthe serum is lightweight and my face feels a bit more hydrated but it's just too light to be used on it's own. there are a lot of other serums that are better value for money
Like but don't loveI have combination skin and this is a nice serum that's lightly hydrating. I liked it but don't love
Light serumI've got combination skin and some serums are a bit too rich, but this one is just right. Hydrating and lightweight
Good for sensitive skinI have sensitive skin and this is really nice and hydrating and makes my skin feel very nourished.
Great!This is an excellent light serum which can be used alone as well as under creams. Very hydrating and has a nice scent
So good!This is perfect for hot summer days or a great light layering serum under moisturiser or to mix with an oil for a breathable night hydrator. It's not heavily fragranced but it is a fresh clean scent. Worth it!
Incredible productIf you are willing to spend the money, this serum is beautiful as a serum moisturiser. It sinks into the skin so quickly and leaves a tiny bit of tackiness on the skin, which is perfect to apply makeup on.
If you want to be even more luxurious this is so nice when layered with an aesop cream moisturiser.
If you have super dry and flaky skin, this won't be enough for you. But for those with oily or combo skin, this is gorgeous, especially when layered with other serums and creams.
Great summertime moisturiser!I really love this product for the summer time! It is a VERY light moisturiser that does not clog my pores, and leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed. I like to wear this under my tinted moisturiser in the day time, or with another hydrating serum (to combat early signs of ageing) in the evening. The Aesop range smells amazing, too.
Love itI use it both day and night. You don't need much at all and it goes on smooth and feels light on the skin. Highly recommend.
Great for non-greasy hydrationThis serum feels super luxurious on the skin. Smells delicious. You do need to be quick to work it into the skin though as it is quite sticky at first. It is quick drying though so doesn't stay sticky for long at all. Great for sensitive skin like mine and doesn't make me break out like a lot of products do.
Great!I have been using this product for a long time. Previously it was known as "oil-free serum", in this timing last year it was changed to its current name. New formula changes a little bit, but in general it's quite friendly to combination to oily skin.
My suggestion for anyone who's interested in this product is: do a skin test first. This helps to know your skin type cause this product definitely is not designed for dry skin. If you skin is in between combination to oily, and if your make up is easily to go bad because of sweat or oil of T-zone, this is a good choice. I suggest to use in in combination with other serum.(not work for extremely oily skin). Use this serum first, especially on t-zone and forehead or other easily to become oily area, and use other serum on the rest. I have been to Aesop stores many time, another suggestion is, if your skin is really that oily, you can skip the cream after serum. So, toner-serum-then sleep during the night/sunscreen protection in the daytime. Also, remember to warm up in your hand to help absorb into skin.
Hope this review can be helpful. :)
LovelyFinally! An Aesop product which doesn't have a million overpowering essential fruit and herb oils in it! I had avoided this brand for quite a while as I hate all the citrus, lavender, peppermint etc. in their products, but someone turned me onto this - which I love. It has a slight fragrance, but nothing unbearable, and it works really well as a non-oily hydrating serum. Plus it is super inexpensive for such a sizeable product.
AwesomeThis is my gave summer serum!!!
Very GOOD!I use it everyday. It's really good for combination to oily skin and even in summer.
It's lightweight but still hydrating for skin. It's also good skincare before makeup.
My new favourite serum!Normal to dry skin. Oh my goodness, finally a serum that I love enough to say wow! It feels like fresh aloe vera and magic on the skin, really absorbent and refreshing. My skin feels plump and toned. Love the smell. The only fault that comes to mind is the dropper it comes with (it's a bit tricky to get it to suck up the serum swiftly) and the opening of the bottle is just a tad too small (serum dribbles out of the rim when dropper glides back into bottle). Nonetheless, love this serum!
AmazingPricey yes but worth it - considering you only need a tiny amount to hydrate your whole face and it stays hydrated for over 24 hours - no flaking or excess oil etc. I love it!
Amazing!I had been hearing about this serum for a while, however, I held off on buying because of the price. After trying many other moisturisers for oily/combination skin and being dissatisfied, I finally decided to buy it. This serum is amazing! You only need to apply a small amount and it moisturises and hydrates your skin without leaving a shiny effect. For me, it lasts all day and I reapply overnight after cleansing. Despite the price, given how little you have to use this product will last for ages so I think it's worth it.
Absolutely love it!
Ultra hydrating and a perfect primerMy favourite "moisturiser"/serum! It smells pleasant, and is easy to apply with the dropper. I only use two to three drops both morning and night after cleansing and toning ( Aesop's purifying facial cream cleanser, and bitter orange toner) and I love that it doesn't leave any oily shine or residue. It does feel a bit sticky for a minute or two straight after application, but once it is absorbed, my skin feels very smooth.
I have combination/oily skin, however I also get dry and flaky spots with change of season or lack of hydration. This has really helped with keeping my skin hydrated and balanced.
I seriously could not go 1 day without this product!I am 41 & have been using this product for a few years now, but only recently stumbled across adorebeauty. I absolutely L.O.V.E. this product. Could not go a day without it now! I used to have really oily skin which was actually overcompensating for my dry skin. Properly hydrating my skin means the excess oil has disappeared!
My sister, Mum & BFF all love this product now too!
Love itFirst time user and almost at the end of the bottle and can say I really love this serum. Use it both day & night. You don't need much at all & it goes on smooth & feels light on the skin. Highly recommend.
Amazing serumI love this product. It is so nice to use with the face oil or on its own. I do find the neck of the bottle is too small for the dropper, and I keep dripping it over the edge, but no biggie. Very quick to work. Love the product. My favourite thing about this purchase is that Adore Beauty enclosed a letter with the product about how to use it. That made such a huge difference.
- This has a strong smell at first of Ylang Ylang, which i'm not a massive fan of, but by jingo it feels good on your skin. Having oily skin i'm definately not one to slather moisturiser onto it but this is great for me, you just dont feel it sitting on your skin all day! My boyfriend steals this one from me too - great for him as it doesn't clog his skin after he shaves. AND it lasts forever as you only need a few drops each time!
- This was fantastic under my morning moisturiser/SPF. Lovely scent and consistency, my skin felt very moisturised. I do prefer Aesop's Parsley-Seed Serum over this one though.
- Really loved how this made my oily skin feel so moist all day.It feels great going on and soaks in quite fast,my minerals looked gorgeous over the top.I would get this again.
