If the brand Elizavecca doesn't ring a bell, I'm right there with you. I truly thought I had found a beauty company I had not interacted with in any capacity — a rare moment for someone whose brain is an overpacked rolodex of beauty information. But while scrolling through Elizavecca's top-rated products, I realized I once had a brief brush with the brand when I, along with thousands of TikTok users watched the $8 Olaplex-alternative go viral.

The product that led me down the rabbit hole of Elizavecca products, however, wasn't the Collagen Hair Treatment; it was the Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Hyaluronic Acid Serum. There were quite a few things that drew my attention: the name of the serum (the "Witch Piggy Hell" part specifically), the packaging depicting a pig in a witch's hat mixing a cauldron, the more than 1,500 five-star ratings, and the $13 price tag.

Kitsch aside, this is an attention-worthy product. Witchy Piggy is a 97 percent(!) hyaluronic acid serum that is also infused with niacinamide and adenosine. Hyaluronic acid retains moisture and plumps skin, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles, while niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that repairs damage done by environmental factors, while simultaneously reversing visible signs of aging. The wildcard ingredient here is adenosine, a yeast-derived water-soluble ingredient with a slew of benefits, including its ability to increase collagen production, diminish wrinkles, heal wounded skin, and soothe skin thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.

In short, this serum tightens pores, continually diffuses long-lasting hydration, and leaves behind a soft and supple complexion. And although there are tons of hyaluronic acid serums on the market, one self-proclaimed esthetician who has experimented with a ton of products and procedures said, "This is the one skincare item I can't live without," adding, "This serum has saved my skin… My skin feels moisturized without being too oily and it doesn't clog my pores. I feel naked without it… I recommend this to almost all of my clients."

Another shopper nearing their 30s remarked that they began using Elizavecca Witch Piggy Serum after noticing wrinkles forming between their eyebrows and under eyes. After trying this, however, they said, "Those areas are nice and firm… It definitely has made my skin look more plump and hydrated."

If pore tightening is a major draw for you (it is for me), you'll be happy to know that one Amazon reviewer said their pores were smaller after just three days of use. A different shopper gushed that since incorporating Elizavecca's Pore Control Serum, "My skin looks flawless. I seriously look like I don't have any pores."

If shoppers are right about Elizavecca's Witch Piggy Hell Pore Serum, a $13 Amazon purchase is the key to the most hydrated, poreless, and plump skin you'll ever have.
