Want Super Hydrated, Boing-Boing Skin? Give Dr Lewinns Line Smoothing Complex S8 Super Hydrator A Go!

This serum came highly recommended by Val. She swears by this hydrating serum during the cold winter months, and since our skin types are pretty similar, I was intrigued in giving this one a go.

Dr Lewinns Line Smoothing Complex S8 Super Hydrator

So I did. Purchased a bottle at Priceline; lo and behold, just two short days later, all of Dr Lewinns’ products went on a 20% off sale. Argh! *facepalm*

Description:
Dr LeWinn’s Line Smoothing Complex S8 Super Hydrator is a smooth liquid gel that contains SNAP-8, cogongrass extract, which offers 24 hour hydration, and sodium hyaluronate, nature’s moisture magnet, to promote smoother, more hydrated skin.

Key Ingredients: Acetyl Glutamyl Heptapeptide-1 (Snap-8: Alternative to painful injections, 30% more powerful than Argireline®), Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (Argireline®: Reduces the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles), Cogongrass Extract (Argireline®: Maintains moisture for 24 hours), Sodium Hyaluronate (Intensely hydrating), Pathenol (Vitamin B: Moisturising)

I love the packaging. Vacuum bottles always get thumbs up from me, and even though I would have preferred this to come in a translucent or better yet an opaque bottle, dispensing of product is very easy.

From the looks of the serum in the bottle, it looks very watery when in fact, it’s a very sticky liquid. If you’ve tried Hada Labo’s Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion and find that sticky, this is at least 10 times stickier.

As the serum is so sticky, patting the serum in doesn’t really work because most of the time I just find my fingers sticking to my skin like glue. I found it easier to dot the serum on the face, and then massage it in with my fingers.

As a hydrating serum, this is absolutely spot on. This gives me lovely boing-boing skin in the morning, which I absolutely love. What I really like about this Super Hydrator serum is that it’s actually a great base for other serums which I layer on top, before sealing everything with a night cream. So it’s toner/essence, the Super Hydrator, a Vitamin C+E serum, eye cream and finally, my night cream. I find that my Vitamin C+E serum (a review on this coming up in a few weeks) absorb better with the Super Hydrator underneath.

All in all, this is a gorgeous hydrating serum from Dr Lewinns. It’s suitable for all skin types, and even with combination skin, I don’t find this heavy on the skin at all. It’s light, not greasy at all and keeps the skin very moisturised, especially during the cold winter months. Love!

What I do not like about it: Nothing

    I actually spat out my drink and laughed at ‘boing-boing’, that is so brilliant! And yes, yes I do want that 😀

      Kaye: Hahahaha it really is boing boing! Sticks to your skin like glue, but leaves it lovely and boing boing the next day 😀

    Oldie but a goodie. Definitely love how it helps to absorb 2nd serum and moisturisers after. Good for both day and night too!!

    1. Tine

      Val: That’s what I thought! Great as base for the next serum and moisturiser. Thanks for the recommendation 🙂 Just sucks that I bought it JUST before the 20% discount came to play 😛

  4. Kimberley

    OOh this looks so nice. A bit pricey but I hope I will be able to try this out once I’ve finished my P50P! Thanks for the review!

      Kimberley: I’d say wait till there’s another sale at Priceline before you get this. Save some money 😛

      PS: Good luck on your P50P! 😉

    Tine, how does it compare to the hada labo lotion?

    1. Tine

      I find this much better than the Hada Labo lotion. The HL lotion kinda sits on top and you have to wait a while for it to sink in. The Dr Lewinns one is more of a serum prep where you put this on, and then put on your serum. I find that this doesn’t just give you better hydration but it allows the other serum to work better. I thought it’d just be me but I find a lot of people who love this think the same too. 🙂

    I purchased DeLewinns line smoothing complex S8 super hydration serum. Could you please tell me the directions on how to use this
    product. Thank you Diane

    1. Tine

      Ahh good on you for being able to find this! I can’t find it in stores any more! Anyway, a good way to use this is after your toner and before your “active” serums (e.g. Vitamin C, retinol, AHAs, peptides, etc).

    easygoing to interpret.
