Review: Super Hyper Hydrator with Coconut Water

Hi guys! I feel like I haven't done a post regarding skincare for a while so today I wanted to talk about a moisturizer that I've been using at night and it's the Super Hyper Hydrator with Coconut Water. This is a Dr. Nicholas Perricone product, but his Super line isn't as expensive as his other products.

This is the jar it comes in. I'm not the biggest fan of jars for sanitary reasons, but I'm the only one who uses this so It's not too big of a deal. I also want to say, I got this at Sephora ages ago and I tried to find it on the website recently, but it says product not carried. I did find it on Amazon though where it's a little bit on sale, along with the other Super products. This moisturizer is fairly thick. I do wake up with a slightly oily face but I don't really care because I don't want my skin to dry out in this colder weather. I also have to work it in my skin a lot too because it doesn't blend in too easily. There are a ton of good ingredients in this to help skin retain moisture, like sodium hyaluronate and coconut water. The coconut water also makes this smell really good too. It's not an overpowering coconut smell, it's just subtle enough to give off a light scent.

Here's some of the product spread on my hand a bit. Like I said, this is a thick moisturizer, so I feel like it's decent for people with drier skin, or people with oily skin that gets drier in the winter. I personally wouldn't use this in the summer as I'd turn into a big oil slick. Once I get this blended into my skin, it looks soft and glowing and I do wake up with my face still feeling soft and hydrated. I'm not sure if I would buy this again because it is on the pricey side at $40 for 1 ounce of product, but a little bit goes a very long way. I've barely made a dent in it and I've been using this for a few weeks now. I also haven't seen any dramatic difference in my skin's texture or anything and it doesn't seem to work any better or worse than what I'd normally use either. It hasn't broke me out, which is nice and I haven't had any other bad reactions either to this. 

I've only been using this for a few weeks, so once I use up the whole jar, I'll be able to decide whether or not I love this product. For now, it's a product in my skincare collection to use up, and it will definitely last me a while, probably through December at least. If I had to give it a grade, I'd probably give it a B right now. Down the road, it may really help my skin, or I'll be indifferent to it. 

Well that's my review! Let me know if you've tried this product, or any of the Super products! 

Also let me know if you'd like to see posts about something specific!

  3. Hi Katy . . . I need the Super Hydrator! Your old hag of a momma's skin is drying up already, and it's not even officially winter. :-( My Kinerase♥♥♥ is gone, and I have found that the Andrew Weil moisturizer isn't rich enough for the colder months. I am now scraping the bottom of my samples drawer, looking for Kinerase samples. Wonderful stuff, but WAY to expensive.

    Love,
    Your Momma
