If you’re a skincare junkie like us, you probably have about 9238475 products in your arsenal for day and night. While we tend to stick to budget-friendly products like The Ordinary, the cost still adds up when we’re using an oil, serum, moisturizer, eye cream… twice a day. May we introduce Hora Skincare Super Serum + CBD ($54): a hydrating serum PACKED with skin-transforming ingredients that you can just apply and go. Read on to see how this serum is a game-changer for us.
There’s one semi-wild ingredient that makes Hora’s Super Serum stand out from the pack: CBD. If you’re unfamiliar with it, CBD or cannabidiol, is a cannabis compound with a whole bunch of medical benefits. CBD products are sold for inflammation, pain, anxiety… a lot of things! In this serum, CBD is used for it’s skin healing benefits like anti-inflammation and anti-aging. According to Hora, because cannabinoid receptors are located throughout the skin, CBD can interact with those receptors to encourage healing.
But besides CBD, the other ingredients in this Super Serum are, well, super! Here are a few:
- Marine Collagen for anti-aging
- Rosehip Oil, an antioxidant
- Argan Oil for moisturizing
- Vitamin A to regenerate
- Vitamin B3 to soothe
- Hyaluronic Acid for hydrating
- Vitamin C for clarifying
First of all, Hora’s branding and packaging is STELLAR. Seriously in love with the beautiful minimalistic, graphic and luxe packaging that this brand has going on. I feel like when a product is packaged beautifully, I’m much more likely to trust it.
Anyway… the serum. So I’ve used my fair share of serums in my 26 years on this planet, but this one really stood out from the get go. First of all, it’s crazy hydrating. I’ve needed to moisturize over almost even serum I’ve ever used because my skin never feels fully hydrated, but with this I didn’t. I applied this after washing my face and my skin instantly felt soft and healthy. It doesn’t have much of an odor, if any and goes on really smoothly.
My skin can sometimes be sensitive, but this did not irritate it one bit. And no, the CBD does not seep through your skin and make you high as my lovely fiance thought it would. It also works great as a makeup primer! My makeup went on really nicely and didn’t cake at all with just Super Serum underneath. The stuff is luxurious for sure, as it should be for $54!
After dropping most skincare products and using this serum for a week, I noticed my skin looked great- potentially even better than when I was piling on 4+ layers of oil, serum, etc. a night. I’m not sure if it’s making a huge difference in the slight forehead wrinkles I’m starting to get, but my skin looks smoother and brighter for sure. And the best part- it saves me so much time on my day and night routines! While we typically wouldn’t spend this much on a serum, Hora’s Super Serum is like a 5-in-1 product, making it totally worth it. We’d highly recommend!
We received Hora Skincare Super Serum as a gift from Hora, but not in exchange for this review. This review is totally honest.
