Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid Serum... Will it flake?

Hi friends!


So I bought the Hyaluronic Acid serum by The Ordinary and I found that it flakes off when I layer it with my face oil and moisturizer. I'm frustrated because I'm in my late 20's and my skin is getting dryer so I need a Hyaluronic acid that will hydrate my skin without flaking off. I'm interested in the Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid Serum and I want to know if anyone has had a problem with it flaking off when layered with other products. 


Thank you lovelies!

I really like the Inkey List HA! Iโ€™ve been using it for a few months now, and it never flakes. I put it on after cleansing and before other serums, moisturizer and SPF.

There could be a couple reasons why itโ€™s pilling, @CaitiCakeFace . If youโ€™re set on using it alone, you want to make sure your skin is damp before applying it. So...cleanse your skin, tone or Essence if you do that step, then apply 3 drops of the hylauronic acid and press it into your damp skin. You definitely donโ€™t need more than that. Using too much will cause pilling, especially if youโ€™re using an oil right after. Since itโ€™s water based, the oil will cause it to pill-or flake off. Give it ample time to really sink in before going in with another product. Using a jade roller will also help the product penetrate your skin. Another way you can use it is by adding a few drops to your moisturizer.
