I recently received Morea Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Age Delay Serum With Vitamin C + Green Tea (WOW, what a mouthful, huh???) in return for my honest review from Tomoson. I am just going to call it the Age Delay Serum in this post 🙂

My free bottle came quickly and it is in a little white bottle with a airless pump applicator and the product claims to hydrate, brighten and restore your skin. You should apply this serum after your face has been cleansed and it is dry ~ just add a small amount (about the size of a dime) to your entire face and neck and allow to dry, before continuing with your skin care and makeup routine.
Full List of Ingredients: Organic Herbal Infusion, Organic Aloe barbadensis Leaf (Aloe), Hamamells Virginiana (Witch Hazel) , Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (botanical hyaluronic acid), Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Methylsulfonylmenthane (MSM), Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Carrageenan Gum, Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil), Wildcrafted Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea), Pelargonium Gravolens (Geranium Essential Oil), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Ethy Hexyl Glycerin
This is a gel that does remind me of aloe vera gel in its consistency, not surprising as the second ingredient is aloe vera. I wonder what the “herbal infusion” is. Anyway, the gel has a slight odor that does dissipate quickly.
Once I spread the gel onto my skin, there are a few seconds where it glistens, without being greasy, and then it sinks into my skin quickly. My skin is not tacky or sticky and it is much smoother to the touch and fine lines have been plumped up. I like that this is a gel and comes in a vacuum pump. It doesn’t need refrigeration, does not have a strong odor and is colorless.
This uses a botanical hyaluronic acid and I was curious about what that is. I found the following information:
Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide is a botanical ingredient retrieved from the Cassia Angustifolia, a native plant to India. In cosmetics it is primarily used as a skin moisturizing agent due to its high content of polysaccharides. These polysaccharides have shown to mimic hyaluronic acid, a component of the skin which assists tissue repair and protection. When applied topically this plant based hyaluronic acid penetrates the dermis to secure moisture and in turn support the skins elasticity and structure. Not only is hyaluronic acid directly correlated to increases in skin moisture, it can adjust its moisture absorption rate based on the humidity of the environment. This natural extract also functions as an anti-inflammatory and a treatment for acne. description and image from http://www.rainshadowlabs.com/Cassia-Angustifolia-Seed-Polysaccharide-botanical-hyaluronic-acid-raw-material-to-be-added-to-skincare-products_p_1351.html
This is a very affordable product ~ it retails for $14.99 US dollars on Amazon.com for a 1.7 oz bottle. This is one of the better products I have reviewed via Tomoson. My only complaint is the long name 😉
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
