SkinMedica HA5 – An Honest Review From A Skin Care Addict

HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator Review

I’m really excited to announce that I have a new partnership with SkinMedica.  Considering how long I’ve used their products and the respect I have for their technology and research, it’s an honor to partner with them.  They provided me with the HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator for testing purposes.  However, I had another bottle that I had recently purchased and it was my fourth time purchasing the product.  I’ve been a long time fan!  I’m really excited to share some behind the scenes technology with you about their new HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator and what I love about it.  It’s truly amazing and the only product of it’s kind on the US market.  This one has been a game changer in my skin care routine.  

Before I tell you about the product, I want to share a little bit about SkinMedica in case you aren’t familiar with the company.  When choosing to invest in a skin care product, I believe it’s important to know where it’s coming from.

About SkinMedica

Since 1999,  SkinMedica has been developing innovative skin care treatments that help rejuvenate skin.  The co-founder, Dr. Richard Fitzpatrick, was a world famous dermatologist who was passionate about skin care and slowing the aging the process. SkinMedica is a clinical skin care line sold in physician offices and med spas. Some on line stores are also authorized dealers.  SkinMedica has been featured in countless top fashion and beauty publications and on prime time television.  In 2012, SkinMedica became a member of the Allergan family which has an astounding medical and cosmetic product portfolio.

About HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator

SkinMedica’s latest innovation, released in 2016, is the HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator.  Currently, there is nothing else on the market that can do what this product does and I doubt there will be.  SkinMedica has patented one of the extraordinary forms of hyaluronic acid (HA) that sets this product apart from the rest.  Since SkinMedica is part of the Allergan family of companies, who could possibly know hyaluronic acid better?  No one!

HA is a substance produced within our body to maintain hydration.  As we age, our body produces less HA.  Many skin care products incorporate HA because of it’s remarkable ability to retain water.  The only challenge is, the HA molecules in many products are too large to be absorbed by our skin.  This results in benefits that are superficial and short lived.  Nonetheless, it’s a wonderful hydrator and products with HA soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  I choose the HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator because this product is formulated different than other products that tout the benefits of HA.

SkinMedica’s HA5 serum will instantly smooth fine lines and wrinkles.  With regular and continued use, the effects that the product has in diminishing the appearance of fine lines will be improved and sustained.  HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator will also help prevent the degradation of HA within your body.  HA5 helps to restore the skin’s natural ability to produce HA on it’s own.  This leads to increased hydration and improved overall skin health.

Unique & Patented HA5 Technology

best hyaluronic acid for skin

HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator is made up of five forms of HA and is formulated to provide instant skin smoothing benefits for up to eight hours.   Most products these days, tout using two of HA.  This baby has five forms so now you know why they call it HA5!  Stop and think what that can do for your under eye area!

The proprietary technology in HA5 is VitisenSCE which is an antioxidant blend that harnesses stem cell extracts found in the Vitis Flower.  The blend also includes a peptide complex to support skin rejuvenation and hydration.   If that’s not enough, HA5 also contains Polysaccharides and Plankton to enable the skin produce it’s own HA for long term skin health.  That’s quite a line up and this is why I say it’s  game changer.  This product is offering more than surface moisture that evaporates after a few hours.  It’s a complex formula that is exclusive to SkinMedica.

Why I Love SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator

The beautiful smoothing effect under my eyes achieved with this product is something I’m always chasing.  I want long term hydration so my makeup looks fresh all day and doesn’t settle into fine lines.  I have tried many creams and natural remedies but this is my top choice for skin hydration.  HA5 genuinely improves the look of my skin and under eye area.  It’s always in my cabinet!  While it’s referred to as a serum, it like light weight gel and it’s instantly absorbed with no residue left behind.

Going on the skin, this product feels like satin and it’s completely weightless.  Everything seems to firm up as the HA begins to plump the skin.  The results are beautiful and I’ve never found anything I like as much as this hydrator.  Keep in mind, this is a hydrator not a moisturizer.  There is a difference and when you visit SkinMedica’s site, take a look at the information out there intended to educate consumers.  After applying the HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, you should apply a moisturizer.

I’ve used a lot of SkinMedica’s products over the years and I will tell you that this an extraordinary line.  I use more of their products in my skin care regimen which I’ll share in another post.   SkinMedica now offers the HA5 product  in 1 ounce and 2 ounce bottles.  Their clinical results speak for themselves and these are important things to consider when choosing skin care.
