Most Helpful Positive
First impression of this serum was that it has an odd colour (brown) and it was also an odd texture almost like a thick creamy consistency but at the same time a serum. Anyway I tried it out after washing my face and WOW my skin felt so plump and tight and just nice. Love that it has a natural herbal scent too.

ok but not amazing
I wanted a hydrating serum as my skin was feeling drier than usual (i'm usually combination skin). This serum is nice but I don't know how much of a difference it made for me.

Left skin tight and plumpAlmost immediately after cleansing and apply this serum my skin felt so tight and firm and plump at the same time. Feels lovely on my skin.
Cant wait to get anotherI very rarely find a serum that I would re purchase. I will 100% be re-purchasing this serum. Its the nicest consistency and feels lovely on my face. My skin feels so much tighter and hydrating the next day.
Smells nice and makes your skin refreshed looking but hard to applyThe product is quite lumpy and is hard to apply evenly. It has a very strong red/brown pigment which is noticeable on your skin. I use it along with the daily moisturizer but have started only using it if I'm not leaving the house or as a travel set if I'm in the car all day to keep my skin nice and refreshed. It works great makes my skin look nice even and not tired but the by the end of the day around my hairline the product has sat and you can see the pigment and it looks dirty and feels grimy when you wipe your face.
GoodA nice hydrating serum. I have others I prefer better, didn't see it do anything drastic to my skin to make me want to repurchase though.
Beautiful!This product is soo nice, the smell is a bit funky but it hydrates and sinks in to my skin so well! I have not tried it under makeup yet but on it's own is beautiful! A bit pricy though..
PlumpSmells lovely and left my cheeks and skin feeling plump. Great serum.
Antipodes Hosanna Intense Hydrating SerumIt hydrates without leaving a cast on my skin. It soaks in within minutes and leaves my skin fresh. Works so well under foundation as well.
PlumpingThis serum has become part of my morning routine. Love that it makes my skin feel instantly plump and hydrated. Such a great feeling after every application. I also love using this right before bed time and wake up with silky smooth feeling skin.
PlumpingGenuinely a nice plumping serum. Feels really cool and light weight on my skin. Easily applied onto my face and neck. I will 100% be purchasing again soon.

really nice serumI use a few drops of this in the morning and it helps to keep my skin hydrated all day
PlumpingReally plumping and hydrating on the skin. Has a really thin and light consistency on the skin. Lovely cool serum feeling and a little goes a long way!
Lightweight & plumpingIm really happy I tried this serum and would highly recommend. It has a light thin consistency and applies really easy to the face - the best part about it being thin is I dont need to use much of the product to cover my entire face. Each time I use it my face feels so plump and hydrated right away. Also gives that firing feeling. I use it before I apply makeup most days and also at night before bed.
PlumpingI use the 'Antipodes Manuka honey facial' daily and its amazing - I received a bottle of this Hosanna plumping serum for free with the last one I ordered and I absolutely love it. It has a very thin texture which is great because it doesn't feel thick or heavy on the skin. The dropper makes it easy to put in your hand and apply. I love the natural light herbal scent. I use a lot of expensive serums and this one stands out to me - ive been using it daily morning and night for 7 days after cleansing and my skin feels instantly plump afterwards and silky smooth. Skin also has felt really hydrated and overall great. I will 100% be purchasing a full size when its gone.
Good for Sensitive skinFor those who find that certain serums don't sit under makeup very well or will cause your foundation to ball up, this will be a good option for you. I am very hypersensitive to the sun and I find that applying this serum in the morning helps to prevent my skin from breaking out as much when im out in the sun for long. Usually I don't quite like products that have a rose water scent to them, but this one has a very gentle scent which is not irritating at all :3
Light basic serumI love this and I have bought it a couple of times. Like other reviewers I found it worked well under makeup helping my base to glide on smoothly. It did make my skin feel more plump and hydrated, but I consider it more of a simple basic serum than a miracle product. Its light and refreshing to use in the morning.
Antipodes Joyous serum my pick of the range if you want to see results.
Really LovelyThis is super nourishing and hydrating it really does give my skin a bit of a boost when I need it. Am interested in trying other Antipodes products after trying this. Its no miracle serum but it is still quite good.
Love itLove this oil! It's so nourishing and smells so natural. These products truly are so luxurious to use. Definately worth trying!
very niceI got a sample size in a goodies bag and was instantly in love with it. I have sensitive skin which I've seen some mention this is not good with but I had no problems at all. It made my skin feel so smooth and healthy. I unfortunatley spilt most of the bottle and will have to splurge for the full size at some point. Best of all its CRUELTY FREE.
GreatI love this stuff. My skin gets really dry in the winter as I am outside a lot and I use it before putting on the Rejoice Facial Day Cream. My skin is way more hydrated than it was with just moisturiser. I don't think you should use it as a stand alone product but along with a good moisturiser the results are impressive. Also it smells divine!
Love itI love the Hosanna serum! I purchased it twice in the past because I noticed it made my skin plump, hydrated and smooth. Definitely give this a go if you have dry/dehydrated skin but you need more moisture on top/underneath.

Brightening and hydratingI loved this product during the hot summers of Sydney. It instantly brightened my skin and was light and dried matte. Perfect under sunscreen and makeup and lifted any sallowness from my skin. It smells delicious! Unfortunately the brightening effect doesn't last so I almost treat this as skincare-makeup - the instant luminosity this achieves is wonderful but skincare in my mind should produce lasting effects.
Great productI love this serum, it smells earthy and absorbs into the skin really quickly. I feel this is adding to my skin feeling much more hydrated in this dry winter weather.
Pretty goodThis serum is a good product.
However, as it has 2 cons: it is VERY runny so application is not a breeze (very very liquid, just like water) and it is NOT hydrating at all, you need to follow up with another more moisturizing serum and a good moisturizer after.
I would say it is ideal for oily skins; it is packed with natural ingredients and and no oils in it, so all in all it is good, but as i said, if you have normal or combo skin like me your skin will pull and be tight right after application.
Pros: not expensive, natural, smells divine.
Good product but probably not a must have.
Try other Antipodes productsI found it a bit strange that this hydrating serum dries matte - it automatically feels like it hasn’t hydrated your skin well. I found it more of a good primer or base for makeup, sunscreen and other moisturisers.
There are so many other great Antipodes products that will hydrate your skin more effectively.
Not for meI was really looking forward to trying this product which gets great reviews. I like natural products and as a dry skin sufferer I'm always on the lookout for good hydrating serums. However I don't think this product is really for me. For starters the brown colour is a bit off-putting but that's not a deal breaker. The smell to me is what I really don't like about this serum. It smells kind of strange - I can't even describe it but I don't like it. The serum itself is quite hydrating but I didn't enjoy using it and wouldn't purchase it again.
Fantastic!Love this serum! My face is super smooth after applying it and it smells nice. The serum dries clear and it doesn’t make my face shiny.
Great morning additionThis serum is very lightweight and dries matte, so I’ve found it great to add to my morning skin routine and wear under makeup. The scent is strong but nice, and the light brown colour doesn’t sit on your skin. I’m not sure it feels as hydrating as an oil, but I wouldn’t like to add an oil-based serum under makeup so this is very suitable for that. Absorbs quick enough that it doesn’t add time to my usual routine.
Hydrating and skin plumping serumAs a 50 yo woman I’m always ready to try the latest skin plumping products, Antipodes Hosanna H2O Intensive Skin Plumping Serum was a light weight serum which was easily absorbed by my dry to normal skin.
I applied it at night under my evening cream and noticed a slight improvement in the appearance of my jaw line, the skin looked to me slightly firmer and lifted.
The product left my skin with a slight golden tone, which I liked.
Average serumI enjoyed using this serum but I haven't seen too much of an improvement in my skin. I was hoping for better results given it was much more expensive than my previous hydration serum by The Ordinary. It has a pleasant scent but it's quite strong. However the scent disappears after a few moments. It's a browny colour but when applied the colour disappears as well. I do like that it is less sticky that other hydrating serums and that it dries quite matte. Easy to use under makeup as it dries quickly. Unsure if I will repurchase as I would like to try others.
Great serumI love this Serum. Made a difference to my skin
Great!Really great serum which doesn't leave a greasy residue or shine. It kinda feels like water when applied to the skin but it sinks in super fast. Smells herbal but its great.
Delightful !This smells delightful and is a pleasure to use everyday.
This is a water based serum, so depending on your personal preferences, you may think that this is a "thin" serum. I have always used an oil based serum, but decided to try this as I love the brand.
Once applied, it disappears instantly, leaving a perfect "dry" base for make up and / or your SPF moisturiser.
Don't be fooled by it's light texture and the fact that it sinks in so quickly. After just four days my skin texture has improved, it's so soft and really does look brighter.
I use it around my eyes as well with no problems (I have sensitive combination skin).
