Most Helpful Positive
This is a new one with more ingredients, as the old one was purely hyaluronic acid. But works just as great if not better because it doesn't evaporate as quickly.

It’s not bad
This isn’t bad, it smoothed my skin but that was about it. The intense version is 100x better showing better results.
Just like the old oneThis is a new one with more ingredients, as the old one was purely hyaluronic acid. But works just as great if not better because it doesn't evaporate as quickly.
Medik8 B5I have purchased my second bottle of this magic!
I have very dry skin and this product helps so much! Makes my face feel so plump after every use!
Love this productI have been using this product for over a year now and definitely noticed a difference in the hydration of my skin. I have combination/ dry skin and this product paired with the Medik8 C tetra cream have really improved the overall hydration of my skin.
Lightweight hydrationHave just purchased my second bottle of this product. I have very dry skin, especially after my micro+LED appointments, and this serum fixes right up. I love how quickly it absorbs into the skin and I feel like it helps all my other products absorb quickly too, making my skincare routine much faster. Makes my skin feel silky smooth, I will definitely be continuing with this product in my routine.
Worth it!I got this beautiful serum as part of a free gift with purchase. A little of this product goes a long way. You apply only 6 drops to your entire face and BAM! Extreme hydration for my very dry skin, it leaves you with a subtle feeling and works best when used at night before bed time, for the ultimate beauty sleep. It is quite pricey for the full size, but go on spoil yourselves! It's very luxurious and does exactly what is says!!

Cured my flakinessThis serum is what I recommend to all my friends. I've used a lot of different one in the past but this one is the best. Leaves the skin feeling amazing and hydration lasts all day
Perfect hydrationThis product delivers amazing lightweight hydration. I used to struggle with hormonal acne, and started using this product after antibotics to manage my skin caused dryness and an itchy tightness. This product was amazing at delivering perfect hydration without making my skin oily. I used it liberally twice daily in addition to my normal moisturiser and it made my skin noticeably plumper. I now use it at night to give my skin a boost! Great for lips and neck too.
Hydration!I love this product a little goes a long way. Keeps my skin feeling hydrated and supple. I use it AM and PM after my Medik8 Vitamin C serum and then add a thinker moisturiser/ humectant at lock it all in.
So hydratingMy skin, although combination is quite dry. This is an absolute must have. It conceals fine lines with its hydrating properties and my skin literally drinks this stuff up. A beautiful product
Amazing hydration I use morning and night and my skin never becomes dry no matter what the weather.It is light and does not clog my pores. It provides hydration for the whole day and works perfectly under my night serums I am on my 4th bottle and would highly recommend
Really like this productI have been using this product for over 6 months now as part of my morning routine and I love it. It goes on very smooth and is absorbed very quickly. My hairdresser had noticed my skin looking dull in some areas (perhaps because I don't always drink as much water as I should...) but this product has my skin looking brighter in the morning to the point now where I have stopped wearing as much make-up on my face - now just tinted moisturiser.
GoodMy skin likes this. It looks hydrated and plump after I use it!
My Skin Drinks This UP!I recently had to purchase after my facialist used this after a micro. I was blown away with how quickly my skin needed this hydration. I use twice daily morning and night and love the plump feeling i now have. Cannot do without!
Really goodI really liked this serum! Works well and my skin would always look healthy and hydrated. I have since started using “the ordinary” version instead and found it works just as well. This is still a really great serum and does what it claims
Hydrate and plumpThis is a great product which I have consistently re purchased. I have combination skin with the odd breakout and this sits so well on the skin under makeup. It’s great at hydrating the skin and calms down any redness or irritation. I really like the consistency and a few drops cover the whole face. I bought the B5 from The Ordinary recently and immediately regretted it, when compared to Medik8 the consistency is terrible and it does nothing.
Hydration stationI love the way this feels on your skin. You’d think because it’s gloopy coming out of the bottle it’d stay like that on your skin but no! It gives you ample time to apply to your face before drying. I love it, gives the skin a nice glow. I use it every morning.
SerumI got the 10ml as a gift with purchase and it’s good but not something I’m rushing out to buy. It’s very similar to The Ordinary serums only this one doesn’t leave a sticky feeling and hydrates pretty well as a base
Best hydrating serumInitially, I received a 10ml bottle of this as a tester with one of my Adore Beauty orders... at the time I was using the Hylamide Sub-Q Anti Age serum which I found quite heavy (it does have a number of additional ingredients in it, which would definitely be suitable for someone with more mature skin than I) so I started swapping Medik8 into my morning routine and the Hylamide one to night time.
Even before I finished the full tester bottle, I went and bought the full size. Honestly, if you're even thinking of trying this just jump right in. It has a beautiful, light consistency, no weird smell and has cleared up so many minor blemishes on my face in just a few weeks. It's even at the point I don't think I need to wear moisturizer over it anymore! You won't find this serum leaving you greasy, even under makeup. It's just perfect!
Expensive but indispensableIf you're on the fence about this one just try it and keep your routine up. Your skin will thank you.
I was confused about how this could be moisturizing as it's a gel.
I don't know how it works, I just know it works.
My skin is plumper, my texture is smoother and skin has a nice glow about it.
This has cemented itself in my pm routine. I love it.
Love itThis is so helpful for rehydrating the skin, especially as I have dry skin! It also provides long-lasting hydration. I received this as a free sample and am looking forward to purchasing the full size!
nice productNice sample from Adore Beauty. Super hydrating and not sticky at all.
Super hydrating!Been using this for years. Super hydrating and calming on my skin
Great product!This serum is the best iv tried! Not sticky at all and makes my moisturiser glide on. Highly recommend this product for anyone who wants that extra hydration.
best hydration everi have looked for a good hydrating serum for a long time but i think i have found it. this serum is so light and hydrating and leaves the skin so soft. i received it as a sample but i think i am going to switch to this hydrating serum.
Hydrated skin without a greasy feelingI have dehydrated skin with an oily t-zone so was concerned about using this product as I thought it might make my skin greasier. I was wrong. This serum is so light and dries quickly leaving my skin feeling moist but not wet or greasy. I use this twice a day and it has definitely addressed the dehydration. My chin, forehead and nose used to be peely and dry but since using this serum it has left my skin in those areas moisturised.
Love this hydrating serum!Love this serum, it absorbs well and leaves my skin feeling so good.
Having dry and aging skin, this serum works wonders. It is pricey but you only need a little bit so lasts pretty well.
Have ordered a few times and will continue to again!
Take it or leave itI received this serum as part of an Adore Beauty promotion with my last order. I liked using it but I don't think I will buy the full version. It goes on nicely, doesn't feel sticky on application and did make my face feel more hydrated, however for the price, I definitely wasn't blown away by it and it wasn't one of those products that I have to have! I didn't really see any different results compared to a cheaper alternative.
Hydration plus!!I spend a lot of time in an aircraft which drys my skin out like beef jerky.
I use this product morning and night, it's a staple for me! It re-hydrates my skin and leaves it feeling fresh.
I absolutely love this product!!
Leaves skin beautifully softI love this! My skin has never looked or felt better. It’s so smooth and it’s made my skin look amazing. Definitely worked wonders for me
Easily absorbed, feels great on the skin. A little goes a long way.I received this product as a free sample and love it! I love the texture and how it goes onto my skin and how quickly it's absorbed. A little really goes a long way. The serum absorbs really well and it's not sticky or greasy, it kind of feels like there is nothing on your skin once it dries but your skin feels great! I have used other serums in the past and so far, this is my favourite (I had purchased a serum in my order which I also need to try but I wanted to try this one first as I was considering purchasing prior).
Drink of water for your skinI love this product. I’ve got very dry skin, particularly my nose. I wanted a little extra hydration kick for a recent long haul flight and found this was exactly what my skin needed. It’s light and not oily at all. It made a huge difference compared to how my skin normally feels after 24 hours flying.
Like, but not LOVEI liked this serum, but I felt the consistency and the effect did not blow me away.
Gorgeous productI received this as a gift with purchase and I would not hesitate to purchase the full size product. It really does hydrate your skin!
Amazing product for dry skinI received this item as a sample and was so impressed that I purchased the full size product. Extremely rehydrating for dry, aging and sensitive skin without feeling heavy. I apply this serum before applying my vitamin A serum at night and my skin feels amazing in the morning. This is definitely something I will keep purchasing.
My new favourite serum!I have been wanting to try this serum for a while and recently received one as a sample. I have blemish free skin, but it is dehydrated due to medication. I have found this serum to be incredible at hydrating my skin so it not only stays healthy, but make up finally glides on and can be retained during the day without separating or cracking. I will definitely buy the full size in future!
Definitely buy againI have recently received this as a sample with a purchase, and love it!
My skin is beautifully hydrated with it, I noticed the difference after one application.It's a great texture, and absorbs quickly.
Will definitely be purchasing the full size product
Holy Grail but wallet fail!I got the 10ml sample with purchase of this product in the Adore Beauty promotion. I was curious and skeptical of the product claims, especially the product use. All you need is 6 drops for the entire face, and at first it doesn't feel as though you have applied any product on your face, there was no feeling that the product has satiated the skin. However, I applied this at night and I woke up in the morning the next day to have overnight successful results. My skin was supple, hydrated, plump, clear and felt very soft.
I applied in the morning this time after cleansing and had the same results. This product is fantastic. It is however very pricey hence my 4 stars instead of 5 stars.
I am not sure if The Ordinary has a similar serum to this, and produces the same results, but this product is definitely worth saving up for!
Amazing product if you have the moneyJust received this as a gift with order and have used it three times now, it feels amazing on skin and absorbs beautifully leaving no tacky feeling afterwards. I've seen an instant difference in contrast with my usual hyaluronic (Tarte h2o). In terms of pricing with a similar offering from the ordinary at a 1/7 of the cost, would be hard to justify the price point on this even if it does feel lovely on the skin.
AmazingThis stuff is amazing! I have dry patches around my eyes and it has gotten rid of those straight away, and on top of that, when I wake up in the morning my skin feels so soft and tight all because of this product. Love it!
Excellent Serum.I have been using the Medik8 B5 Serum for about one year now and absolutely love it. Beautiful texture, fragrance free and I have noticed the difference in my skin's hydration level since first using. I would highly recommend this product.
Plump, hydrated skin from the first useI received a 10ml sample of this serum and from the very first day of using it morning and night I noticed a difference in my skin. It felt and looked plumper, softer and my forehead lines were less obvious. It also made my makeup sit beautifully on my skin. It absorbs super quickly and is a wonderful extra step between a toner and a face oil to give your skin an extra burst of hydration. My main skin concerns are fine lines and dehydration and this addresses both of these. Wonderful!
My favourite serumI am on my second bottle of this serum and will continue using. It was recommended to me by my sister who is a beauty therapist and I cannot thank her enough. It has done wonders for my skin! I use it morning and night and it is my favourite step in my beauty routine, it feels so refreshing and hydrates the skin like nothing else.
HydratingI have oily and dehydrated skin (acne-prone). This serum really helped to calm down any flakiness and dry patches while soothing my skin. I didn't experience any new breakouts while using this product. The product is quite runny, so it sinks into the skin quickly.
Drink for the skin.I use this during the day as a 'drink' for my skin. I wouldn't use it as a stand alone moisturizer but it is awesome to keep in my handbag to use a couple times during the day to rehydrate my skin. It's also great over sunburn!
Cheaper options availableFeels nice to apply and does what you expect - gives you a nice plumping effect to the skin. It does do what it says and so for that, it gets 3 stars.
However, the problem is the price. There are so many other options out there and some which are markedly cheaper. For example, The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 is another multi-weight HA serum that does pretty much exactly the same thing this does - granted the consistency feels a little different on application and some may prefer the feel of the Medik8 but I couldn't tell the difference in terms of its overall effect.
The clincher is that you can get a genuinely more advanced HA serum (precursors, better penetration, etc.) and one that feels even nicer to apply (to me) for a more affordable price...for that, look to NIOD MMHC2. You get so much more bang for your buck with that one.
I received this as a free sample from another website and have another coming now from Adore (thanks!) but I wouldn't purchase it. Firstly because many regular serums already give me a good dose of HA so I find a dedicated one to be redundant, but also because, if I genuinely needed it, NIOD would be my pick.
Insanely goodThis product is amazing! My normally dry peeling skin is soft and hydrated after using it! Amazing
Absolutely love itI have combination skin with some dry patches some areas on my face after having my baby. Not to mention about fullness of skin too. I decided to try this Serum after read the recommendation from skin expert and well being book writer. I absolutely love it! Very well hydrated, slowly brighten up my skin and diminish the problem skin. Someday I just wear it alone and happy with the result.
Skin is never dryI use morning and night. My skin feels super hydrated. Never gets flaky or dry anymore. Would recommend however it’s pricey.
Hydrating but not oilyThis was a really lovely serum.
I have mature age skin prone to combination dry spots and oily t-zone and this serum it was easily absorbed by my skin without leaving any oily residue and played beautifully with my moisturiser and foundation.
Not goodI bought 2 bottles at once after seeing so many good reviews, just started 1st bottle and I wanna return. Lightweight, fast-absorbing, yes, but it balls up on skin every time! Even the remaining product on my palm, still roll up if you rub it... With such an expensive product, not even better than the Ordinary HA
The best serumI absolutely love this serum. It is very hydrating but doesn't leave my skin feeling oily, it soaks in straight away. It has really improved my skin texture and reduced the severity of my breakouts. It sits really nicely under moisturiser and foundation.
Great productWater like feel. Glides on. Not sticky. Skin feels hydrated. No heavy scent. Will buy again
Very HydratingI have oily yet dehydrated skin and the Medik8 serum did wonders in helping regulate my oiliness and hydrate the dehydrated areas.
I usually use the serum after having derma rolled my face for optimum effectiveness and I find my skin is more hydrate and plump after every use.
I would recommend to anyone with dehydrated or dull skin but also for people with combination or oily skin types looking for a non-greasy moisturising alternative.
Great but slightly expensiveGot a sample from Adore Beauty. It felt great after application and did not cause breakout/oiliness. I bought a full sized one after the trial. I really love how it feels on my skin.
I have combination to oily skin and had difficulty getting the right skincare product that does not make it worse. This is definitely becoming part of my skincare routine. I love it. The downside is the price.
Great Hydrating SerumI have combination skin and would be dry and oily in different areas on my face, this has calmed everything down. I put this on under my MEDIK8 BALANCE MOISTURISER every morning before my make up and my make up sits beautifully all day, where as before i would go extremely shiny due to my oily skin in places.
Super HydratingBest serum for dry and aging skin, always feels amazing to use on my face and neck and I apply it every day under my Advanced Day Total Protect Anti Aging moisturiser. It keeps my skin well hydrated!
Love!!I received this as a sample, finally got around to using it and I didn’t expect much but my dry skin felt so supple, fresh and hydrated!! I was amazed and addicted! Safe to say the sample bottle didn’t last very long..
Incredible option for sensitive skin!This is an AMAZING, repeat, AMAZING for sensitive skin prone to dryness and redness. I have rosacea which is triggered by so many things- not this! Hydrates and makes a visible difference to my skin with no irritation.
Super Hydrating!Was recommended this product by my beautician and have loved it ever since. I combine this with the redness reducing cream day and night and have noticed a massive difference in the reduced redness through my cheeks and forehead. If only it wasn't so expensive; but worth it.
a must for hydrationi use this product every night under my night cream. a must if you are struggling with hydration and skin texture. highly recommend !!
LifechangingI noticed a difference overnight, this serum has been life-changing for my skin! It's improved moisture, texture and skin feels and looks so so much better
Best hydrating serum!This hydrating serum is the best I’ve used. It’s quite thick and takes a good minute to properly sink in but leaves skin so hydrated and smooth. It has completely stopped any flaking or dryness of my skin.
Bought on recommendation by beauticianI use this product after chemical peels, skin needling and a little every other day when I’m feeling my skin is a bit dry. Ultimate hydration. Repeat puchaser of this product. I used to use oils and still have dry skin, no comparison to this serum
Lightweight moistureStruggling with oily skin this serum acts as a lightweight and quick drying moisturiser. My face feels soft and fresh. I have only tried at night but reading other reviews it might be a great base for daytime under makeup.
Best Hydrating serumMy skin is really sensitive and dry. I tend to get bad reaction to products easily so needed something to help hydrate my skin. This product is amazing ! Would defiantly recommend. Will buy another when this one runs out
Stunning serum for summerI’m on my second bottle of this stuff and I do absoloutely love it. I cannot wear moisturisers in the Australian summer and I am happy wearing this alone or before my medik8 vitamin c serum (which is still hard to wear during summer days) the only thing I wish is that it was a pump that dispersed the correct amount each time as I went through my first bottle way too quickly for the price. This is easy to do with the dropper and trying to manage this with my second bottle. Great for oily skin, and as a makeup base as it’s not heavy at all. Love medik8
Feels AmazingLove the feel of this.Soaks in and makes you feel so moisturised.
Would definitely recommend if you get quite dry over the winter period.
Really niceThis is a really nice serum. I’ve tried many HA B5 serums and thought they were all the same until I tried this one. This is the first one I’ve used that dries down to a non sticky finish. Loving the quality
Worth the $$Super impressed with this. I get really dry skin and this is the only product I've found that helps to instantly get rid of my dry, flaky patches. Skin is very moisturised but not heavy or tight. It's a bit expensive but it's worth it since it keeps my skin feeling nice all day.
Favourite SerumI have been using this daily for almost a year or so - I began using it prior to my wedding and never stopped. I usually get quite dry skin, especially in the colder seasons, but using this daily under my moisturiser has hugely prevented the need for additional hydration masks. A favourite.
Not for meI was disappointed that this made my skin red & blotchy as other reviewers rave about this product! It did make my skin feel softer, no effect on fine lines but I had to discontinue use due to the rash. I do have very sensitive skin though.
Excellent serum.I apply this serum morning and night religiously. I have had dehydrated skin which was of a great concern to me and has been for a long time. I researched various hydrating serums on the market and found that the Medik 8 Hydra B serum had the best and safest ingredient skin care. I have honestly noticed a difference in the hydration level's in my skin and I also use it on my neck. Best brand and serum and greatly appreciated, only wish I had started using it years ago.
It worksThis is a beautiful product. I have used a lot of similar hydration products in the past and this one is by far the fastest absorbing. Many others leave your skin slightly sticky but this one doesn’t, it fully absorbs.
So goodThis is a really good serum. Its great to use especially during winter.
liquid goldI have used a lot of hydration products and this one is on top of my list. It absorbs really quickly and leaves my skin feeling super hydrated. Use it in conjunction with the Tetra C cream and you will be in heaven.
Great product, high price tagMy therapist recommended this product after I had skin needling and peels. It’s a great product. It’s like giving your skin a big drink of water! Settles nicely into the skin, no residue. The only negative is the price, there are other similar products out there for less $
Caused Terrible BreakoutsI wanted to love this serum so badly, but unfortunately it broke me out every time I used it. I tested it several times and when I would discontinue using it, my skin would clear up right away. As soon as I reintroduced the serum, I would have small red pimples within 24 hours. If it didn't cause such severe breakouts, I would have loved it. It does feel great on the skin and I think it made my skin look more glow-y, but unfortunately it's supposed to be non-non-comedogenic and that just wasn't true for me at all. I don't even have oily or acne-prone skin so it was very surprising!
Cannot recommend enoughThis does absolute wonders to my skin. I have combination skin that has a super oily tzone but tight and dry cheeks. Especially in the beginning of spring and beginning of autumn, my skin gets extra dry and flakey and tzone gets oilier. This is the best thing to apply to HYDRATE my skin right after cleaning my face with a towel, followed by a cream to MOISTURISE and lock in the extra hydration my skin needs.
Must try productThe best B5 serum I've ever tried. Great for oily and pigmentation skin. Will repurchase it <3.
Yes yes yes!My skin therapist recommends Medik8 and I am hooked. This was the first serum I took on from the range and I now use it day and night. I now use it in conjunction with Serum C in the morning. Super hydrating. Will be purchasing this over and over again!
Beautiful on the skinLove love love. Constantly repurchasing!!
Fantastic SerumAnother great Medik8 product! This serum goes on so well, and only a few drops needed. I’m so happy with how my ageing skin looks improved using this serum along with other Medik8 products. Will continue to use!
Nothing Compares!I keep coming back to this serum time after time. Yes, it’s pricey which is why I switch to other brands in hopes of achieving the same results, but nothing compares to this amazing product!
You only need 3-4 drops to cover the entire face and neck area. The texture is light and gives enough time to spread across your face and neck. At first it feels like it’s going to be sticky, but that quickly disappears and your skin is left smooth to the touch.
I use this both AM and PM. In the morning I layer it over a vitamin C serum followed by a SPF - I don’t use a moisturiser as I have very oily skin and find this serum enough to hydrate my skin during the day. In the evening I layer it over either a vitamin B or retinol serum, and then followed by a face oil.
The end result is smooth, plump, and hydrated skin.
I can’t recommend Medik8’s Hydr8 B5 enough! It’s amazing!
Holy GrailMy beauty therapist recommending this product and I have noticed an improvement in only a week! My skin is a lot more hydrated, plump and lively. Will definitely repurchase after this bottle!
Great but too pricey.I loved how this serum plumped up and hydrated my skin and absorbed quickly. But because there is so many other brands that are more competitively priced I will not be repurchasing this as it is too expensive for a simple hyaluronic acid serum.
Lovely, but priceyI have been using Ordinary serums for a while and was interested to try a different brand.
I have oily skin with dry cheek patches which can flare up in winter. Using this serum in the evening worked well and in the morning my skin looked hydrated and fresh.
I would recommend and think it is slightly better than the serum I have been using, but it is a lot more pricey!
Amazing even for oily skin!Having oily skin, I would always stay away from anything marketed as 'hydrating' out of fear it would make my skin an oil slick. Oh how wrong I was! After a little bit of education I learned that my skin was probably producing excess oil to make up for the fact it was dehydrated and lacking in moisture. I use this at night time for a boost of hydration, and it helps my skin look plump, smooth, and without pesky dry patches from breakouts. My skin is visibly less oily overall, I'm converted!
Medik8 Hydr8 B5 BrilliantI just love this product. It glides on smoothly and feels great on your skin. I can feel the difference straight away. Definately will buy this product again!
Fantastic bottle applicator.I have reviewed this product before and love it, but I would just like to tell you how strong the bottle itself is. I have accidentally dropped it twice onto our tiled bathroom floor, to my absolute horror. I am very pleased to tell you that the bottle didn't break on both occasions. I couldn't believe it when I looked down to the floor as I thought it would have smashed everywhere. Perfect product!
Simple good productI use this product daily. Morning and night. A simple serum that is easily absorbed. No residue and can easily apply makeup over the top.
Just as described!It performs just as the description outlines. It is a great, light gel-type serum that leaves my skin feeling plump. My skin is sits on the dry side but this is great to use even without moisturiser. I would definitely recommend this product.
Love this!I love this! I’ve only been using it for a week now & I can already see & feel a difference in my skin. My skin was dull & dehydrated before, it’s so much brighter now! I would definitely recommend!
Absolutely amazing!I got this as a sample from Adore Beauty a while ago. I absolutely loved it
Really soft skin after using thisThis works very well under makeup to stop my makeup from looking cakey and dry when wearing powders, it makes me skin really moisturised and soft and I’m glad I decided to try it because I can’t imagine not using this serum now,
Ive found my holy grail.I have dehydrated combination skin and i needed a hydrating serum that was able to remove my dry flakiness under my eyes. After trying multiple products, the Medik8 saved my skin and brought it back to life. Only after 1 weeks use, the flakes were gone and my under eye was has hydrated as ever. I will always recommenced this to anyone looking to add hydration back into their skin.
Holy Grail Hydrating Serum!I have been through soooo many bottles of this stuff, it is like liquid gold!! I am definitely loving the new packaging too, so classy!! I use this morning and night. Seriously love it! x
The bomb!This product is amazing, really hydrating and instantly gives me a glow. I use it as a base before my moisturiser, day and night. Highly recommended:)
Lovely hydrating serumThis is a nice lightweight serum to help hydrate the skin. I have combination oily skin and I found this didn't irritate my skin and was easy to use in combination with other serums or moisturisers.
amazingi have combo-oily skin and whenever i use this serum, i can actually feel my skin has less breakouts/acne. it's so lightweight and i love the consistency because it really feels like nothing after you thoroughly pats it down on the face and follow it with skincare routine. very hydrating and i mostly use this in the winter. the only downside is that the price is a bit too pricey, but overall it's an amazing serum
