Great but the marketing change is confusing
I have been using this serum for about two years since it was marketed as Line Release. I've done a comparison and the ingredients are nearly identical. I have had the opportunity to go back and forth between the two formulations and I do find that the Line Release formulation works better for my skin needs so I am a bit disappointed with the re-branding. Overall, however, I am very happy with the performance and value of this serum. I use it on my problem areas: forehead, 11's, and then from the bottom of my nose down to my jowls.

The trick with this serum is that it does take some time to see results, but it is very much worth the wait. You will notice the difference if you forget to put it on one morning. I experience smoothing and plumping of my fine lines--seriously it turns my forehead to glass. I personally like the subtle orange scent and look forward to it.

Wanted to love it but 15X magnifying mirror wouldn't let me
Saw good immediate effects, but like other reviewers, they seemed temporary. I compared in a 15x magnifying mirror before applying a generous sample packet, after an hour and then 6 hours or so later, and the benefits, for me, didn't last.
Really excited about other serums, like Restor8, and love the Dilo Oil and Exfolikate but this just didn't justify the purchase of full size.

Almost there
I got a couple packets of this serum to try as samples. I love the result--firmer, more elastic looking skin that is really hydrated. However, I can't stomach the smell. I use Restor8 on a nightly basis, and was hoping to switch it out with HydraKate, but the smell is too much of a turn off for the price. I'm a huge Kate Somerville fan. Find a way to alter the smell and I'll be the first to purchase!

Another Winner!
I have been using Kate's products for about 10 years (from my mid 40's to mid 50's) and I can's say enough about them. I recently added the Hydrakate to my line up and I absolutely notice a difference. I had wanted to try this product but honestly the price tag made me hesitate. I received a sample recently and decided it was worth the money. I find her products last if you use them as suggested and not over use them. I use this and then the Goat Milk Cream afterwards and my skin feels like silk and the fine lines are noticeably reduced, and I have just been using for a short time. I admit I have tried many different lines of skin care products but i always return to Kate Somerville. I constantly receive compliments on my skin and I attribute that to good genes and excellent skin care products. I am done "experimenting" with other lines of skin care products. I have found a winner and always tell friends about Kate's products. Thanks!

Immediate Results
This is my favorite Kate product. The serum is lightweight, gentle, pleasant smelling, absorbs quickly, and -- best of all -- delivers immediate and noticeable results! I love the way my skin looks after using the serum overnight: hydrated, lifted, and smooth. I would definitely recommend this product.
