My Vida Glow Hyaluronic Complex Review.
Now for the juicy bit - what are these shots really like?
I've broken down my review into the three big factors you'll want to know about:
1. The Hyaluronic Acid Shots.
I’ve never been big on shots (everybodddy). I prefer to sip things slowly.
But in the case of this product, I think the vial format is really quick and easy, plus it ensures you’re getting the correct dosage.
Could they save on packaging by selling the liquid in one large bottle? Perhaps. But maybe the reasoning behind it comes down to optimum dosage and protecting the integrity of the formula.
And the vials fit in your handbag/pocket, so you can get your hyaluronic hit on the run.
2. What Does the Vida Glow Hyaluronic Complex Taste Like?
Each to their own, but I love the taste.
It’s like a sweet/sour berry flavour that’s strong, but delicious. I like it straight out of the fridge, but you could absolutely mix it into water.
It would probably overpower something like oats or a smoothie, so my best advice is to just knock it back.
3. Vida Glow Hyaluronic Complex Results.
When this product initially launched a few months back, I took one a day, every day for two weeks straight.
It’s hard to comment if it was the complex or just a great skin week, but my complexion definitely felt plump and hydrated. Coupled with great topical skin care and drinking heaps of water, I really do think they make a difference.
Nowadays, I take this ingestible hyaluronic acid supplement as a targeted treatment when my skin is feeling especially dehydrated, like when I’m flying interstate or between seasons.
Ingestible beauty is a new-ish space, and while there’s exciting research and anecdotal testimonials emerging, I'm the first to admit it’s not rock solid.
So, do you need to shot hyaluronic acid to have hydrated skin? No.
But if you’re looking for something to boost your existing routine, I think it’s a great targeted treatment you can use as a skin-insurance policy.
Plus, I’m optimistic I’m getting on the front foot, hopefully slowing down the rate at which my own HA will deplete as I age. Fingers crossed!
