The product

If you think you have to spend a billion bucks on skin care to get optimum results, then you clearly haven’t met Simple’s latest hydrating serum. 

The Simple Booster Serum 3% Hyaluronic Acid & B5 is a richly active, multi-tasking, hydrating serum. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, PENTAVITIN™ complex and provitamin B5, this budget-friendly serum helps with moisture retention, relieves irritation, and minimises unwanted skin texture too.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this hardworking and affordable serum.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Simple Booster Serum 3% Hyaluronic Acid & B5 to a panel of women aged 18 to 35 who wanted a deeply hydrating serum.  

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Simple Booster Serum 3% Hyaluronic Acid & B5.

The way it changed their skin: Members were impressed by the serum’s ability to completely overhaul the state of their skin, with many reviewers saying they noticed a difference in how plump and hydrated their skin looked, as well as an improvement in overall radiance and a decrease in unwanted texture. 

The fast-absorbing formula: A number of our Review Crew® members commented on the fact that this serum absorbed quickly and didn’t leave a tacky or sticky residue after application like other hyaluronic acid serums they'd tried in the past. 

The affordable price point: At just $20 bucks a bottle, the Simple serum delivered results that were comparable with exxier hyaluronic acid options, without breaking the bank.

The verdict

“The consistency of this product was great, no overpowering smell and was absorbed quickly without any residue. My skin has felt so much smoother, plumper, brighter and more hydrated so much so that I sometimes feel like I don't need moisturiser over the top and I love my moisturiser! Also love the dropper for easy application and a little of the product went a long way.”

“Great formula! It sits nicely on the skin and didn’t cause any redness or breakouts which I loved! It’s quite similar to one of my favourite brands called the ordinary and it worked just as well!! It left my skin with such a natural and healthy glow even under my foundation! I used it morning and night under my usual moisturiser, and it felt super smooth on my skin.. it was easy to use just a simple dropper, 3-4 drops went a long way!”

“The serum is not too sticky or tacky like other Hyaluronic Acid serums tend to be and really blends well into the skin leaving it well hydrated and feeling fresh and cool. Over the time trialling this product I noticed my skin smoother, more hydrated and overall a brighter more plump complexion. I would not hesitate to purchase this serum again in the future. At this price point I don't think you can go wrong.”
