Nykaa SKINRX Hydra-X 2% Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum Review

Hyaluronic Acid is a skincare superhero that can be relied upon blindly to get hydrated, plump and healthy skin. You know, hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by our body. However, as we age our skin’s level of HA decreases. When topically applied, HA will help your skin absorb water more effectively and provide a barrier to prevent further water loss. So, if you’re looking for something that provides hydrating and nourishing effect, pick up some good HA-laced products like serum, moisturizer or sleeping mask. Today, I am going to talk about such a product that’s I’ve been using for more than a month. Anddd, it is Nykaa SKINRX Hydra-X 2% Hyaluronic Acid face serum

Price: Rs 799 for 25ml. You can try it now at 20% discount on Nykaa app.


The fluid comes in a white coloured, opaque glass bottle with a dropper dispenser, provided by the brand additionally. When I recieved the package, it is provided with a black screw cap to prevent from any spillage. I had to insert the dropper dispenser after removing the black cap. All these was encased in a cardboard box with all necessary information about the product. Though you’ll get those details on the outer part of the bottle as well. I’m really a fan of this dropper packaging as it makes it easy to portion out the serum.

Texture and fragrance

It has a nice, lightweight gel-like consistency that glides on easily and dries smoothly without leaving any residue or tackiness. Hence, oily or combination skin types can use it. The concentration is easy to disperse, absorbs fast and works well under makeup. It’s simply flawless. The serum is fragrance free which is a plus point for my sensitive nose.

My Experience with Nykaa SKINRX Hydra-X 2% Hyaluronic Acid face serum

After a whole month of daily use of Nykaa SKINRX Hydra-X 2% Hyaluronic Acid face serum, I am quite impressed with the effects I’m seeing. You need only 2-3 drops for your entire face and neck and anything more will be a bit greasy. I use it during the day inserting between the toner and my regular sunscreen. Afterwards, the skin feels delicate and silky to touch. It doesn’t feel sticky or excessive moist. After continuous use, you can notice a fresher, smoother and healthier complexion. 
It definitely offers some hydration my skin is needed. However, I don’t think it is hydrating enough for what I need at my 50’s. It has definitely improved the texture of my skin giving it a healthy and fresh appearance. Yet, I can’t give it 5 star as I expected more hydrating and plumping effect on my face. 
Overall, I’m quite happy with the result of Nykaa SKINRX Hydra-X 2% Hyaluronic Acid face serum. I really appreciate the soothing and calming effect it does give. Though I would not suggest this serum to anyone over thirty. It’s a good option for the girls above twenty who are looking for some boost of hydration.

    I haven't used any store-bought serum so far. But have made a homemade one. I liked how you honestly shared your experienced and also gave your suggestion about which age group will be more benefited with it.

    I am using a few face serums, and can swear by their effectiveness. Have recently realised how good they are to keep your skin moisturized and supple all the time.

    Thank you for sharing your review. My skin is quite dry and I am looking for something that will hydrate it but as you mentioned that this is not recommended for someone above 30… can you share your recommendation for 30+ age group?

    Having dry skin has made me rely a lot on hyaluronic acid as nothing hydrates the skin more than that. I am yet to try Nykaa Skin rx range

    Being light on skin and turning skin into smooth silky texture is a good feature for me to try this product. Shall check it soon.
