Hyaluronic Acid Booster contains a specialized matrix of skin-smoothing hyaluronic acid, skin-replenishing ceramides, and panthenol that penetrates skin’s surface to help lock in moisture, keeping skin hydrated and ultimately moisturized.

All Paula’s Choice products are 100% fragrance free, clinically proven to be non-irritating, and never tested on animals.

Visibly plumps skin, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles—including fine lines around the eyes. Can be used alone or add a few drops to your favorite moisturizer or serum to see even better results. From first use, you’ll see noticeably smoother, more hydrated, younger-looking skin.

Dispense 1-2 pumps into the palm of your hand and then apply to your face. Add a couple more drops if you will also be applying to your neck and chest. During the day, finish with a moisturizer with SPF 30 or greater. Can be applied under the eye area, avoiding the eye itself.

What should you not mix with hyaluronic acid?

What does hyaluronic acid do for your skin?
Research shows hyaluronic acid has numerous benefits for skin, including drawing hydration into skin which helps it feel softer and look more supple.

Can people with combination skin use hyaluronic acid?
Yes, people with combination skin can (and should!) use hyaluronic acid.

Is it OK to use hyaluronic acid every day?

Do you wet skin before applying hyaluronic acid?
If you prefer applying leave-on products like hyaluronic acid when your skin is still damp, that’s perfectly fine, but there isn’t research showing that doing so is required for maximum efficacy.

Awesome booster

At the very first time, I would complain about the capacity and it is costly. Soon after using it, I realised why the capacity is only 15 ml. If the amount is more than that, it won't be so fresh and efficiently. By the way, I am 52 (2024). It's quite different with or without mixing with the serum. I love it. Thanks Paula Choice.

Amazing hydration booster

I have a dry skin to the point of peeling and stretched feeling but this booster have helped me tremendously. Still a bit dry, but the result is still too early to determine since i have been using this for only 3 weeks now. Expecting better results in time to come

Great Product for Dry Skin

I use this booster to repair my dry, dull, flaky, and aging skin. Safe for acne prone skin. I wish I could use it both day and night. However, my foundation which is silicone based, pills away when adding this Hyaluronic Booster into my a.m. regime. Thus, I'm only able to use it in my p.m. routine.


easy HA!

So easy to apply, it glides over skin, plumping and smoothing. Used daily, it lessens the appearance of lines and wrinkles. A must-have, for me.
