Hyaluronic acid products are intended for all skin types, and their use can be started already in the late 20s, that is, with the appearance of the first signs of aging. The opinion that only dry skin needs hydration is incorrect, as oily skin also needs hydration.
An indispensable ingredient in skin hydration is hyaluronic acid, which is a humectant (binds moisture) and is naturally found in our skin. In addition to its moisturizing effect, hyaluronic acid soothes, restores the skin barrier and has an anti-inflammatory effect. As we age, its production and concentration decreases, which leads to a loss of elasticity and hydration of the skin and, consequently, to the formation of wrinkles. In order to compensate for its inevitable loss, it is necessary to replace it with products that contain it.
Due to its characteristic of binding an incredible amount of water, hyaluronic acid can even erase the signs of aging that have already appeared.
A moisturizing product (cream, fluid, serum…) is a mandatory part of the daily care routine, which will prevent dehydration of the skin (wrinkles form faster on such skin) and the appearance of signs of aging, as well as give it softness and elasticity.
One such, Aqua Perfector moisturizing fluid from the Croatian clean cosmetics brand Aprive, is a solution for complete and intensive daily hydration of the skin.
The basic ingredient of the formula is the innovative, patented hydration complex AQUAXYL™ and hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid and niacinamide.
According to the manufacturer, Aqua Perfector works like a shield against dehydration. It replenishes the skin with the necessary moisture and helps prevent its evaporation by strengthening the skin barrier. The results are softer, smoother skin with smoothed wrinkles.

An important active ingredient of the fluid is hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, which due to its low molecular weight has the ability to penetrate the epidermis and maintain its hydration.
The fluid also contains a powerful antioxidant – niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3. Research has confirmed that niacinamide protects the skin from harmful external influences and strengthens the barrier function of the skin, which causes it to lose less moisture and remain hydrated. It reduces the signs of aging and the visibility of pores, removes hyperpigmentation, has an anti-inflammatory effect, eliminates the appearance of blackheads and evens out the complexion.
I used it daily, in the morning and evening care routine by applying it to a cleansed and dry face. I did not need an additional moisturizing serum beforehand because the fluid sufficiently nourished the skin and it was hydrated, soft and elastic all day. I used it all year round, and in the winter months it provided me with all the necessary care, and in the summer it was not too heavy on the skin.
The fluid is white in color and has a light texture that spreads easily and is quickly absorbed, without leaving a greasy film on the skin. Works great as a foundation for liquid foundation.
I am already using the third bottle of Aprive moisturizing fluid because it provides me with excellent hydration, without any harmful ingredients and is affordable.
If you are looking for good moisturizing care, with a quality composition without questionable ingredients and Croatian production, you will not go wrong with this fluid. There is currently no hydration product of this composition on the market at this price. Excellent value for money!
It does not contain silicones, parabens, dyes, synthetic fragrances, alcohol, mineral oils, sulfates and phthalates, and ingredients of animal origin.
