Hylunia Review


Hylunia is marketed towards people with very sensitive skin and claims to be the safest and most effective line of skin care products currently available. Hylunia’s founder set out to create products that could be used by his children, who had very sensitive skin. They would experience allergic reactions to the preservatives and fragrances that are staple ingredients in many skincare products.

According to the Hylunia website, 99% of the skin care products available today are full of ingredients that can cause irritation and inflammation. These side effects may not be visible, but they work at a cellular level and may eventually lead to premature aging of the skin. To prevent this from happening, Hylunia makes products that are very soothing for the skin while still limiting the effects of environmental pollutants.

Hylunia offers many different skin care products and seem to have all the bases covered. You can find cleansers and toners, moisturizers, and an anti-aging line. Each category has a few products listed but only one is in the “Age Defying” category. This product is the Beyond Complex C. Unfortunately, there isn’t even a description about what this product does or what it might contain.

Product Details

With no information available on the official site, we are forced to check out many third party sites to see what they have to say. Hylunia Beyond Complex C is actually a “bioactive” serum that uses some type of micro-encapsulation technology as a delivery mechanism. What does this mean? It’s a moisturizer that uses microscopic spheres filled with age-fighting ingredients such as anti-oxidants and peptides that release after being absorbed into the skin.

At $69.99, Hylunia’s Beyond Complex C is a little expensive for a product that lists no details or ingredients on its official website. It only says it allows great absorption of Vitamin C better than other products.

The Good

  • The official website is extremely thorough at explaining it’s mission and history. Many ingredients are analyzed in depth.
  • Testimonials are available on the official website.


The Bad

  • You must buy Hylunia from an authorized dealer.
  • Finding the exact ingredients for some of the Hylunia products is almost impossible.
  • Not all of their products are listed on the official website.
  • Product return policies and/or the existence of a trial sample for first-time users are not discussed.

The Bottom Line

Hylunia’s website is very informative in a few key areas. This website has one of the most thorough breakdowns of various ingredients we have ever seen and offers many pages of history and reference information about the company. The problem comes when you start looking for information on the actual products being offered. Most companies will at least have a small paragraph describing what the product is supposed to do and how the product ingredients make this possible. The information on the official Hylunia website is limited to a picture of the product along with the name and size available. That’s it. If you have sensitive skin, it couldn’t hurt to give some Hylunia products a shot but with so little information about the products themselves, we can’t give them a positive or negative review.

  1. Hylunia was recommended by my facialist. After using it for over 30 days, I see excellent results. Fine lines disappearing, skin feels clean and soft. I am 59 years old with sun damaged skin and rosasea. This is the best line of skin products I have ever used.

    1. Hi Cathy,

      I am interested in purchasing Beyond Complex C but with the cost I really want to know it works.

      Do you still feel the same about the product a year later? I will certainly appreciate your feedback.

      Thank you,


  2. I discovered HyMed/Hylunia 20 years ago. I’m now 59 years old and get compliments on how healthy and great my skin is. The grape seed cleanser is fabulous and the Beyond Complex C makes a difference. At one time I decided to stop using it and over a year later decided to go back to using it. The improvement was subtle and took about 30days to see improvement.

    1. Maria,
      Thank you very much for your review. I am 57 years old and my facialist recommened Hylunia night cream and the Beyond Complex C for day under my moisturizer. I noticed results quickly and am very pleased. Your review answered a major concern of mine: “If I ever stop using Hylunia, will my skin look worse than what I started off with?” I was very pleased to know that you had stopped using Hylunia for a year after 20 years of use and you do not mention anything alarming. Years ago I used Chanel anti aging cream. I had only used it for less than a month but when I stopped using it my skin was more wrinkled than before using the cream. It took a full month for my skin to gain its normal form…
      Any comments you may have will be highly appreciated so I can continue to use Hylunia with peace of mind.
      Thank you very much for your time and concern.

  3. I began using Beyond Complex C and within 4 days I had large red itchy spots along my jawline and neck. I stopped using the product and now the spots are going away. Coincidence? I think not.

    1. Did you use the whole line of hylunia or did you use your cleanser and the beyond complex c? I love all of hylunia, however some people are allergic to oranges

      1. My Daughter just got a Facial and they used Hyluinia Products. I never heard of this before, and have been getting good Facials for years and now using Shira line and also my Facialist also just started using “PCASKIN” line. The Shira line has so many different products for skin like mine sensitive skin but Shira has three lines and I use the mildest line they have and very good results. I did only try Day Cream of her new line seems very good as she works for a Surgeon too and knows a lot about different lines and about skin. One product I do use is Pevonia’s Scrub it is very good for my type skin in my late 60’s and Pevonia is a nice line but quite limited. Not many Salons in Baltimore, Md. use Pevonia but I found one and just use this scrub as Shira’s scrub even Facialist said too hard to use and too strong. Pevonia’s scrub is fine for me and Daughter used it and liked it too. Can’t use Retina and even Vitamin C can’t be first on the list of ingredients which to me is very important to read and if middle of list use Vitamin C. Are there any Salons in Baltimore that use this line that you use? She goes in Virginia. Right now sticking to my own line and use also Pevonia’s Eye cream as all eye creams tried so many from Facialist very think skin under eyes and Pevonia not the best for my age but it agrees with me and that is most important. But not thick enough but tried so many eye creams and don’t like gels even she is surprised I can’t use any from her Surgeons she brings in to me. I would appreciate a answer back and tell me what the difference in your line is from Shira which I thinnk is very good and only tried Pcaskin she just started with and will still carry Stila line. I don’t care for Dermalogica more for Teen Agers though a few good products but satisfied with Shira using it for about 3 years now. Never heard of this Hyluinia line and may be Organic line which my Daughter seems to go in for even in foods. Thanks.

  4. Hylunia is a great skin care line.I Have seen great improvements in my facial skin since using this product a few months ago. Highly recommend!!!

  5. Used the pure moisturiser , and beyond c for 2 years. The cost drove me insane so i spent lots of trial and error looking for a substitute. I found Loreal Skin Genesis serum concentrate for about $11 works exactly the same as the pure moisturizer.

  6. I got lot of pimples after using your products. I usually do not have pimples. Now I have them with scars. I sent some of the pictures of my face to you through my beautician so far nothing happend. I spent lot of money to buy your products now I have to spend more then that to get rid of the pimples.

      1. Is this response a joke. So unprofessional! I was looking to buy products from this company but now I’m going to look to another company!

      2. wow…that sucks…was just about to order some hylunia products but this response is so terrible, i think i will keep researching vegan skin care lines…very disappointing…

      3. I seriously doubt that is from Dr. link! I have personally met him and he is a very kind and professional gentleman. He is extremely knowledgable about skincare and ingredients.
        As for the products, as with any product line you will find some product to benefit your skin better than others.
        As for me, I have had bouts of adult acne and I had been using proactive. It worked to help clear it but left my skin so dry and unbalanced. I had gone in for a facial and they used hylunia products on me, my skin felt really good so I bought some of the products that was recommended for me. I use some of the products like the facial cleanser and the coidial silver toner and daily moisturizer with spf. They work very well to keep my skin balanced and I very rarely have breakouts now. However the vitamin c cream does break me out so I don’t use it. My sister on the other hand uses is daily and her skin shows great improvements using it. My mom and sister both use the products and also love them. We all love the fact that there is no parabens in any of their products, especially since breast cancer runs in our family and both my mom and sister are breast cancer survivors and know how crucial it is to use products that won’t contribute to the imbalance of hormones!
        Just don’t base a decision not to use a great product based on some jerk faking to be someone else.

  7. I was introduced to Hylunia by a friend in the medical field who became an aesthetician. I’ve been using it for almost a decade now, and although I’ve tried many different lines in the past, I’ll never stray. Beyond Complex C is just one of many excellent products that, used in combination with each other, keep my skin youthful and protected from the environment.

    To the comments about price, I wanted to make the point that these products are so concentrated you literally use a pea-sized drop to cover your entire face. So yes, I have to take a big gulp when I’m ordering several items at once, but then I’m stocked for 4-6 months. Something to consider about the cost.

  8. Falsely advertised…
    Clogs pores and promotes break outs.
    I have been trying to reach someone at their customer service for months to exchange this product, GOOD luck finding someone!!!

  9. My significant other tried the Hylunia Intensive Repair Eye Cream as directed on his eyes and it did nothing. It also burns the eyes. Even applied in the PM does not help with the burning. It is a red flag to me if a company does not list their ingredients on the bottle of a product and does not give information on the actual products on their website. Their are other non-toxic, natural ingredient companies out there who are not afraid to explain about their product line and list ingredients right on the bottle. This products are way too expensive. Move On!
