While I love testing new up-and-coming beauty products – it is very rare that I actually add one to my every day beauty routine. Seriously. If I decide to add a a product to my regimen it is either absolutely amazing or it replaces one or more products that I already use. Much to my surprise the Oz Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum for Skin meets not one but both of those requirements.
I have to tell you that when I first ordered and started using the Oz Naturals Serum, I certainly was not expecting much. Hyaluronic Acid serums are all the rage right now and everyone is marketing them. I honestly was not sure that this product would stand out or work any better than the other versions that I have tried.
I don’t have what I would call ‘horrible’ skin – but I certainly don’t have perfect skin either. I have some issues. My complexion is often red and blotchy and I have combination skin. Some areas of my face (like my chin) are oily while others (mainly my cheeks and nose) are very dry to the point of flaking and cracking. It is very hard for me to find skin products for my face, mostly because there are very few that can help with multiple issues without exacerbating one or the other. Fortunately for me the Oz Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum gently helps with several of my skin issues without creating new ones.
When reading the package you will find that this product is a serum based facial product that is ORGANIC, 100% vegan friendly and animal cruelty free ( which i love). As far as long term results- it is supposed to slow signs of aging and prevent wrinkles. In the short term, the serum is supposed to help moisturize the face and give your skin tone a more ‘youthful’ and ‘dewy’ appearance.
The serum is super easy to use and apply. I typically put mine on after a shower. After washing and patting your face dry simply use the dropper to put a small amount of serum in your hand. Rub your hands together and then apply to face. Rub the serum in as best you can – it can be a little sticky at first so i recommend washing hands afterward. It is recommended that you apply this product in conjunction with your favorite moisturizer at is supposed to really help it get deeper into the skin and moisturize more efficiently. This product can be applied and worn everyday and you can apply your makeup on top of it. I just recommend that you give the serum a few minutes to really absorb and dry on your skin before applying any further product.
I used this product as directed and have had pretty awesome results. Like I said – I don’t regularly add new products to my daily routine unless I really feel that they have benefit for me. After using this product for a week – I can definitely say that I am hooked. My skin has a more even and healthier looking skin tone and I am seeing a lot less blotchiness. Somehow – this product worked well with my body chemistry because not only have I experienced a drastic decrease in dryness and flakiness in my nose and cheeks but the areas of my face that are typically excessively oily are even, smooth and clear. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is either looking for a great anti-aging preventative serum or for someone who needs an excellent product to supplement and boost the effects of your daily moisturizer.

I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for this review. All statements are 100% my own opinion after having thoroughly and extensively USING the product.
As some of you may know, I am a new mommy to a beautiful 6 month old baby girl. She is the light of my world. But, like most mommies know, growing a baby does create some… extensive and unbecoming changes to the body. I did not gain extensive amounts of weight when I was pregnant – but all the baby weight I did gain was in my belly… and as my little lady bug grew… so did the stretchmarks she was creating. After she was born – I was almost back to my pre-pregnancy weight almost immediately… unfortunately the skin and cellulite in my belly region did not want to disappear along with the baby weight. I suddenly found myself dealing with stretch marks and loose, cellulite ridden skin in my abdomen and I can tell you that it definitely took a toll on my self esteem.
When I was offered an opportunity to try this product – I nearly jumped for joy. I have been on a diet and exercise regimen since my daughter was born – and while i feel healthier and have lost some weight – the loose skin in the abdomen area just wouldn’t go away. I desperately wanted to find a product that could help me… and this seemed like a Godsend that came at just the right time.
Slim Extreme 3D Thermo Active Shaping Serum comes in an easy to dispense bottle and is very simple to apply. You simply add an adequate amount of the gel to your hand rub between your palms and massage the gel into your skin in a circular motion until it has been absorbed. Apply to the entire abdomen area as well as the thighs and tush area. I recommend giving yourself about 3-4 minutes to dry before putting on any clothing.
After application I almost immediately started to feel the product working on my skin. The gel quickly starts to tingle and get very warm (don’t worry – it’s just a warming sensation – it does not burn) This effect lasted a good 15-20 minutes after I got dressed. There is really nothing that you have to do after that. Just go about the rest of your day as normal.
I have been using the product for about two weeks now and, as per the instructions on the bottle I have been applying twice daily – once after my morning shower and once in the evening. Even though two weeks does not seem like a huge amount of time – I have been noticing very distinct changes and results since using the product.
Since beginning the use of Slim Edtreme 3D Thermo Active Shaping Serum, I have noticed that the cellulite and fatty tissue in my abdomen area is much more smooth. The skin itself is tighter, and the skin is super soft. Another great result I am happy to report is that somehow — my stretch marks are lighter … and fading every time I use the serum – which is amazing because I am so self conscious about them.
Overall – I am extremely satisfied with my experience with this product and will likely continue to use it as long as I continue to get positive results. I have not had any adverse skin reactions or side effects from using the product – it has been super gentle on my skin and thus far extremely effective. As far as I can tell – it fulfills every claim that it makes. I definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to tighten the skin in their abdomen, thighs and tush area. Whether you are a new mommy, or are in the process of losing weight and want to treat and prevent cellulite build up.. this product is amazingly easy to use and has worked wonders for me!
