Can You Overdo the Hyaluronic Acid?

And if you could, I doubt this combo would.  I don't think I could live without my chilled Neutrogena HydroBoost Water Gel but I bought some Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid + B5.  Will using both double just be a waste of money?  Oh, I'll use one at night and one in the AM.   If you use this, it's amazing chilled in the fridge!

I haven't used this yet.  Will try it tonight.

I would love to try this Water Gel, but it contains mineral oil and artificial dye blue. I try to avoid both of these when possible.

Might as well diversify a bit and get other benefits from your moisturizer. I don't think anything bad would happen if you used the HA serum with the Neutrogena Moisturizer though. Especially if it does have emollients like Mineral Oil, as @Shelbelle indicated, that can seal in the HA humectant and moisture. Mineral oil is dirt cheap and can clog pores for people who already have an issue, but I don't see it as that awful for dry skin, though some others do.

@monicakm   I don't know what the purpose of Hyaluronic Acid is so I can't say.  My moisturizer has lactic acid, thyme extract and chamomile to give a radiant complexion.  This is my forever moisturizer.

@monicakm    I just looked it up and if you use to much it can cause dryness and redness so be careful.  Maybe stick with one and then use a simple moisturizer without a whole bunch of stuff in it.

Hi 

you can overdo it but it depends on your skin type . I follow Dr Dray a dermatologist with her own Youtube Channel . She and other derms state that Hyaluronic acid on its own is not moisturizing . It helps hold moisture in . According to Dr Dray its best applied to damp skin and then put your regular moisturizer over it. I have oliy acne prone skin and even my skin would dry with just hyalauronic acid .

@monicakm  - I want to try this Hydroboost line as I've read so many positive reviews.  I love Neutrogena's sunscreen for my face (Clear Face spf 50).
