Water-loving humectants hold lasting hydration to your skin
5% Glycerin: the humectant water-grabbing gold standard ingredient. This small molecule can effectively wedge into your skin for that plump, soft skin feel.
2% Sodium PCA: This molecule is naturally found in your skin’s water-holding system (NMFs - Natural Moisturizing Factors). Replenish with Aquafix!
2% Panthenol: aka. pro-vitamin B5, this dual purpose molecule both hydrates and soothes skin
0.2% Sodium Hyaluronate: This large molecule can grab up to 1000x its weight in water, keeping moisture to the skin and providing long term hydration.
Skin soothers at effective doses to calm irritated skin
1% Allantoin: This ingredient can soothe irritation and speed up recovery of compromised skin. A prevalent ingredient that's hard to find at the right concentration.
0.5% Madecassoside/Asiaticoside: The isolated, active components of Centella Asiatica. A great soothing ingredient with synergistic effects with vitamin C - ascorbic acid! Pair this serum with your Vitamin C serum.

I have combination acne prone skin and I use Aquafix in the morning before the sunscreen. I love it! It is light, but definitely hydrating and sunscreen goes after it smooth. Sometimes when my skin feels a little dry I also add it to Mr. Reliable in my night time routine. It is fantastic as both a moisturizer and serum. Just get it - you will not regret purchasing this no matter what your skin type.
I love this serum. My skin isn’t super dry, so I need a light moisturizer for day time under my makeup. This one does really well.
What else is there to say?? I use aquafix morning and night all over my face, neck, and chest as the first step in my routine, and mix exfoliating acids or other actives into it as well. It's soothing, hydrating, doesn't irritate my eyes, and has no fragrance. I always order two bottles at a time because I never want to run out of it! Please never stop making aquafix! The only thing I wish is that there could be a refillable travel size, the one in the travel buddy kit doesn't last me very long.
I love this so much. I’ve been using this after my Vitamin C serum and find it incredibly soothing as it calms down my skin instantly. Layers beautifully as well, no pilling! I will be repurchasing this :)
I love this moisturizer! Works so well for dry and combo skin-especially with a few drops of their oil!
