Today am reviewing Dot and Key Water Drench Hydrating Hyaluronic Serum Concentrate. I had received it along with the Dot and Key Clarifying Serum and somehow forgot to use it. Am penning down this review after using it for 10 days.

Brand Claims and Ingredients

Packaging, Texture and Fragrance 
The serum is housed in a blue, opaque, thick plastic bottle with a white dropper. The bottle has an inner rubber lining. The consistency of the product is a little thick but non runny. The product has a strong fragrance which is a bit bothering to the nose. I don't understand the addition of Parfum to the product when the brand claims to be a clean brand. I also don't like the artifical fragrance of these serums.

My experience
The serum has an opaque, thick yet slimy texture as stated before. No sooner you apply it on the skin than it gets absorbed really quick. It neither leaves a greasy feeling nor a watery feeling. I like the absorbing quality of the serum. It sinks into the skin giving an even toned skin. After some time you won't feel like you have applied something and yet get smooth and plump skin.

Now coming to the efficiency, my skin becomes plump when I use it night. I don't like using this serum during the day and have tested it for night routine only. I applied the serum for ten days (once a day) and felt smooth and plump skin. I sometimes feel dryness in the morning skin I can't  use an oil sealant to seal the goodness inside. My skin doesn't work well with skincare products layering, so I tried to mix the serum with a little aloe gel and an oil serum. This way it works quite ok for me as opposed to using as a standalone serum.

Initially when I applied the serum some days my skin would look parched and some days it would look plump. I think it was due to the weather conditions. Although am not a fan of skincare layering, this serum would work for those who use sealant oils in their routine.

Price, Shelf Life and Availability - 895 INR for 30 ml with a shelf life of 3 years. Dot and Key Hyaluroic Serum Concentrate is available on Dot and Key website,,

I would recommend the Dot and Key Hyaluronic Serum Concentrate as a good option to plump up the skin and get even toned skin. However it would be best used when mixed with plain aloe gel for people who are acne prone and who aren't into skincare layering. This would be the best option for dry, normal and combination skin types who can add an additional layer of moisturizer above this serum.
