Honorable Mentiom: Geek & Gorgeous HA5
For anyone on an extreme budget, Geek & Gorgeous HA5 gets an honorable mention. Their HA5 is made of 5 forms of hyaluronic acid in varying molecular weight and structure, panthenol and betaine for ultimate hydration. It’s offered in both a light version for oily skin types and rich version for normal to dry skin types.

It’s also pregnancy safe! I recommend checking out Geek & Gorgeous HA5 and C-Glow.
