Re: A very inexpensive

@ula  The only time I used Glycerin is when I was making a room spray with essential oils & spring water.  Essential oils and water do not mix but rather separate from each, the glycerin brings them together.

Re: A very inexpensive

I've tried many hyaluronic acids...I'm big fan of its plumping quality. However, I have heard that if the hyaluronic is not processed properly it will not and cannot be absorbed into the skin, being the the molecules are too large. I've heard M
ASAM explain this very well...he has a Patten on his hyaluronic serum for this very reason. I used to love his serum when he first made it, then it seemed to change and got expensive. So now, its hit and miss for me. I never really know if I'm getting a good hyaluronic. I recently bought one at TJMAXX, doesn't seem to be working. I tried Manuella, and it was drying. Please recommend a good hyaluronic.

Re: A very inexpensive

Hello

 

Amazon has Glycerin  for as little as $12/qrt......read reviews and product information.

 

They have pure Hylaronic acid too as well as the powder.

 

The Liter I have is Mauellas, which I bought several years ago. I remember she said there was two types in the bottle.

 

Theres tons of other "actives" for inexpensive prices, ...I had no idea.

Since it will only cost you less than a good magazine, try the one sold in the vitamin section at Walmart (their generic vitamin-supplements brand). I’ve never bought anything except this, at any price, that worked until I picked up this.

Re: A very inexpensive

In another lifetime, I used to make my own bath and body products.  I used to buy all my ingredients at Hobby Lobby.  They had blocks of pure glycerin -- plus tubs of shea butter, various oils, etc., all very cheap.  I remember the tub of pure shea butter was 99-cents.  HL had an entire aisle of bath and body ingredients back then - maybe they still do.

I use to love this product! I haven't used it for a long time because my skin doesn't seem to need it.

Heritage Store Rosewater & Glycerin, 8 Ounce

@Dazlin 

Check out products w/ sodium hyaluronic crosspolymer. That is supposed to be superior to other forms of HA.

Re: A very inexpensive

@violann ...do you use the glycerin straight out of the bottle?  Not mixing with anything else?

Re: A very inexpensive

A damp cotton ball or pad with a little glycerin on it makes for an excellent makeup remover and it won't dry out your skin.
