Dr.Wu Hydrating Serum

Posted on: November 15, 2011


There is a while I really hooked with Hyaluronic Acid essence. Simple, scentless and effective to hydrate sensitive skin despite I realized later it didn’t do anything for parched skin in harsh climate. Admittedly, Hyaluronic Acid is always a very popular ingredient and can be easily found in many high-end and low-end cosmetics.



In the past, I used to read a lot Taiwan beauty magazines (mostly Chinese edition of Japanese’s one) and this Dr.Wu Hydrating Serum is mentioned and raved in magazines many times (Due to conflict of interest, we know magazine beauty editor would never bad-mouth any product in magazine anyway). Dr.Wu is a skincare line founded by Dr. Wu Ying-Jun in Taiwan and this Intensive Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid is their all-time star product.


The consistency is thick and gel-like, it felt sticky on skin and takes some time to become dry and matte on skin in humid day. Comparing with lightweight and watery Neogence Hyaluronic Acid Essence, I prefer this thicker consistency of Dr.Wu Hydrating Serum for better hydrating result. Moreover, I only need a pump for each application, keeping my skin very soft and firm in our tropical climate.

Does this Hydrating serum fill my fine lines as Neogence’s did? My answer is Yes, it works for fine line but definitely couldn’t help deeper line like wrinkle.

As I used it on and off, I can’t say how long the serum can last. This is a nice hydrating serum as a whole, best for irritated sensitive skin, perhaps a skincare supplement for dehydrated, dry, sensitive skin. In fact, it was raved as soothing agent of post laser treatment. The retail price NT800/15ml is however, beetle-browed for a drugstore product. I don’t think I will re-purchase for normal use but would remember it when my skin is ultra-sensitive.

Rating :  ….)))      Excellent. May buy again.

thanks for all your review all these times, very dedicated and sincere beauty/skincare post, beautyknot. regarding this dr wu hydrating serum and i am also hovering at their shelf thinking whether to buy for a long time (imagine me as a stalker haha) but then i realize their preservative e.g. paraben listed before allantoin so i think might not be so good..just my honest opinion
happy christmas to you..early greeting! lol

Hi Tiffany,
Thanks a lot for your comment! Merry X’mas and happy holiday (coming coming..) to you too. lol

Yes, normally the sequence of ingredients listed according to their concentration (sometimes active ingredient will be listed as first one). For this Dr.Wu Hydrating serum, that could be either the parabens percentages are higher or equal to the Allantoin’s percentage. Just use what we feel comfortable with, that won’t be good if we don’t feel great about using the product. (“v)
