Most Helpful Positive
I've always had dry skin that turns oily during the warmer months. This product has really been a game changer for me and my skin. I felt that after using this for a month my skin has shown to be more hydrated and less itchy from dryness.
Most Helpful Criticism
Works well, a bit out of my price range
I took a travel size version of this when I went overseas and found it really helped keep my skin hydrated and plumped on the flight, especially when mixed in with a heavy moisturiser and a sleep mask. There are other cheaper products that do the same thing for my skin and won't repurchase unless it's on sale.
Good hydration productLove this product. Apply after toner and it is absorbed so fast. Now in Au is autumn and feel pretty dry, so I feel my skin improved after using this.
Dry skins bffI've always had dry skin that turns oily during the warmer months. This product has really been a game changer for me and my skin. I felt that after using this for a month my skin has shown to be more hydrated and less itchy from dryness.
Great serumThis is why I love adore beauty, I get to try great products like this before I purchase. Totally amazing serum.
My skin looks and feels great.
Would like to see the effect with prolonged use
Excellent Vit B5/Hyaluronic SerumExcellent serum if you are looking for something to hydrate you. Hasn't caused any irritation and has probably helped overall with some acne I had which was exacerbated by the smoke from the bushfires over the past few months. Feels higher quality than cheaper brands that I have tried and I now only use this one. Absorbs in seconds, hydrates, lovely finish for layering.
lightweight, absorb fastThis B5 serum is worth the extra cost. I've tried versions by Cosmetic Skin Solutions and OZ Naturals and both disappointed. The SkinCeuticals product has a better texture, better absorption, and instantly plumps up the skin. I use once a day in the morning, and each bottle lasts for six months.
Surprised ,it worksVery good for my oily skin. Make skin less oily .
A good gel moisturizerIt leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated without a greasiness. I have combination skin but it should be good for all skin type. I use it with CE serum and A.G.E. Interrupter every morning.
light hydrating and plumps up skinAn excellent source of hydration and moisture that really seems to last. Light and not at all greasy. And sinks immediately into my skin (you seriously only need 2-3 drops to cover your entire face).It has absolutely no scent, obsessed with this product! Highly recommend.
Amazing consistencyverified purchaserI love how lightweight and effective this product is! It glides onto the skin and absorbs super easily, leaving you with fresh skin that looks like you just washed you face
LightweightI love that the Hydrating Gel is so lightweight and easily absorbs into the skin, leaving no residue. It feels hydrating, leaving my skim smooth
Great!This stuff is fantastic for dry skin and dark circles under the eyes. I used to look very tired and pale but this hydrating gel has perked my skin up. I'd recommend it for sensitive skin as well because it's very light and airy, doesn't feel sticky or heavy or oily on the face.
So hydratingGot this as a sample in my last purchase and oh my lord I wish that somehow it was cheaper or I could afford to use this on the daily. It is SO HYDRATING and I really noticed the difference in my skin after a few days.
Great HydrationI purchased this as part of a Christmas pack and use it with both my CE Ferulic Serum and Phloretin CF, it works well with both and keeps your skin looking hydrated but not greasy.
I would recommend this product, especially if you can get it in a gift pack at any point.
Nice serumThe price of this product surprises me. It felt like a basic serum and as much as it felt hydrating and plumping, I have other much cheaper serums that do the same thing. Not worth the money for me.
BrilliantI am new to the skinceuticals zand i am more than impressed. I use this product every morning after my skinceuticals vitamin c for just over 4 weeks and ny skin has never looked better. My skin now has a healthy glow and i am just about at the stage where i don't have to wear makeup. My pores have shrunk , and overall my skin is looking healthy and YOUNGER! These products are definitely a match ...Read More
A must have!I used this product with the Blemish and Age, and the phyto correct gel, the trio works perfectly for me! After using blemish and age from Skinceuticals, the skin gets a bit dry so I needed something to hydrate, the B5 was perfect! It did not feel suffocating on my skin even though my skin is usually a little oily. Love it!
Hydrating!I have combination skin and this really helps to keep my skin hydrated but without the greasiness. I like the light texture and how it absorbs quickly into the skin.
Like no other Hyaluronic Acid I've triedI've tried so many brand of Hyaluronic Acid from cheap to expensive, so I took my chances with this one. It absorbs very quick and plumps my skin for the rest of the day. Will definitely repurchase this!
Best product for dehydrated skinThis is the best product ever!! It absorbs straight into your skin and you wont feel greasy at all , I use it together with CEFerulic in the morning and my skin gets so much better ever since. I have introduced this to my sister and she feels the same way. I will be buying the second bottle for sure.
Really nice productI really like this serum... and who wouldn't like some HA with their B5? Well done SkinCeuticals, you've really helped my dull, lifeless skin.
Good productReceived as a sample. This product is light weight and hydrating. There's no denying the quality of the product but I find it no different then the Medic 8 serum for a cheaper price point with comparable quality.
Light weight and suit my combination skinI have a combination skin and struggling with acne breakout. This serum is lightweight and absorb so fast in my skin and never cause any breakout. It keeps my skin healthy and hydration for the whole day.
I also use the medik8 B5 serum, it's still good but a bit sticky and not absorb as quick as this one! I think that's why the price difference.
I use it everydayNow I've started using this I can't stop. It makes my skin feel so soft and fresh!
Free sampleGot this as a free sample. It's hydrating but at this price point you can probably get something that works the same at fraction of the price.
Like a drink of water for your skin!I've been using the Medik8 B5 serum for a few years and was happy but I received this as a sample and said I'd try it. I really liked it. Like the other B5 serum I use, a little goes a long way with this one and I find my skin responds really well to this extra hydration boost. I have dry skin so this before my usual mosituriser and sun screen just gives that extra bit of glow for the day.
Beautiful texture, much hydration!I received this as a sample and went on to buy the full size - it’s brilliant! Super lightweight texture that sinks in beautifully and gives ultra hydration and glow to the skin. I love this layered over the HA Intensifier and Retexturing Activator! Divine!
Lovemy skin has been a bit dry lately and i've added this into my routine and it looks so much better. use this serum before moisturiser every night and is amazing. Would recommend this. Worth the price
Good productI really like the texture of the product. It's lightweight and can be fast absorbed by skin. Not sticky at all. I use it as a base serum before my other serums and creams in my daily routine. Not a magic product...especially at the price! I like it but I will try something similar next time.
Works well, a bit out of my price rangeI took a travel size version of this when I went overseas and found it really helped keep my skin hydrated and plumped on the flight, especially when mixed in with a heavy moisturiser and a sleep mask.

LoveI finally purchased this after months of debating if it was worth it and I couldn't be happier. I love how light, hydrating and fast absorbing it is. I definitely see a positive difference in my skin hydration and texture even thought I have only been using it for a week.
Really liking it!Received this as a sample and am really liking it! Use it in combination with my other skinceuticals and Estée Lauder products and this is now on my wish list! Easy to smooth on, absorbs well and my skin feels hydrated!
Nice, but wouldn’t spend my own money on itI received a deluxe sample of this and while I did enjoy it, in no way can I justify the price. It’s a lightweight serum that absorbs beautifully, making it a great in between for serums and creams. But definitely not the magic bullet in my skincare routine. And at the price... wow! I just can’t justify the spend on something that simply provides a small layer of hydration, which was all it di...Read More
Good additionI can’t say this is worth the money.
I love all their products and this gives an added hydration boost.
I’d use this one or the HA intensifier, but not both.
HA definitely feels more plumping, but this is so gentle and hydrating.
Received Free SampleVery smoothing and hydrating however I probably wouldn't spend the money to buy a full size.
B5 Hyaluronic AcidI received this as a sample, which was great as I was wanting to try a SkinCeuticals hyaluronic acid serum. Light, absorbs really well, my skin feels taut, smooth and hydrated.
Great productThis winter I added in this serum along with the skincuticals H.A. Intensified and I am so glad I did. I often suffer with dry skin in the winter, however this winter it wasn’t a problem! This product is lovely to use and layers well with no piling.
the best product I have foundIf I could name my favourite beauty product of all time, this would be it. It genuinely does what it says it does. I have mature skin and it tends to dehydrate and sink a bit, looking a bit criss crossy with fine wrinkles. From day one of putting this on, you can see this start to disappear, as the product hydrates your skin. I only put one drop on each cheek, starting below the eye, and gentl...Read More
LOVE LOVE LOVE!I receive a generous sample of this serum in my latest AB haul. I was really excited! Firs impression; easy to absorb, very hydrating. It reminds me of my holy grail serum (Medik8 Hydr8 b5), but with a slightly thinner consistency. It aso absorbs faster and does not leave any sticky residue. It also does not irritate my sensitive skin. Too early to tell, but I am loving this serum and this might b...Read More
Tried sampleWow! this little B5 gel is very expensive! i got a sample size to try out and boy did it hydrate my dull dehydrated skin! it felt amazing to put on and just sucked moisture out of the air onto my face! love it!!!!!
A small amount goes a long way with thisYes, this product is pricey, however, a small amount goes a long way. I find this lasts approximately six months when I use it every day. I find this hydrates my skin without making me feel oily, works really well under makeup too.
do a pretty good work of hydrating your skinI got to know this brand via an app named "RED", where many users are recommending it for hydration. I have been troubled with acne and red blemish for a certain long time, and i am kind of "oily outside, dry inside" type. I just wanna give it a go. The price is affordable. well i think i'd better keep using it for over a month, and then i'll give an authentic feedback
Great hydrationLoving this product, a little does go a long way and I find I don't have to take any of the gel up with the applicator to drop it onto my fingertips or skin because I simply dip it into the gel and run my fingertips along the outside of the glass applicator and there is plenty of product there to work with. Definitely enough to cover the entire face so this baby will last a while! I use it after a...Read More
Absorbs so wellI love this product and the results it gives my skin. It absorbs into the skin so well and keeps me hydrated throughout the day without looking oily
Works but not worth itIt definitely does the job. But so does other products in the market (in fact, medik8 hydr8 is the closest thing and that works just as fine for a lower price tag)
Hydrating B5 Gelahhhh l love this product , it goes on well , its super hydrating and it doesn't feeling oily or sticky after use. I use it along with the C E ferulic serum and eye cream.
A winnerThis is one product you can’t do without! Very hydrating and little goes a long way.
Good product with great resultIt helps my skin feel more comfortable in the morning, reduce the redness. The swelling has completely collapsed and the acne spots dry out completely.
So nourishingThis product is great for my sensitive skin and really leaves me feeling hydrated and moisturised. It's so smooth and definitely a new favourite, only a shame it’s so expensive.
Expensive! But my presheeeeessssMan ok so -I'm every bit a hyaluronic acid devotee, I can't imagine not using it twice per day. Often layering a few different kinds of hyaluronic acids!
This is a particularly good one if you have the money to spend on it - the texture is a bit of a goldilocks for me, not too heavy, not too light. I actually like to use this underneath cheaper hydrating serums, because this is the on...Read More
My new top favourite serum for hydrationI have been using Korean / Japanese brands serum for many years because I hate the gluey texture of most serum. This one improves my skin hydration and very easy to absorb. I love its light-weight with no fragrance and simple packaging. I only used it for two weeks or so and have recommended this one to many friends!
Very hydratingIt was of a big help when changing season and my face skin started peeling off the dead cells. Right away it made you feel your face drank enough water and became healthy and glowing. It was also quite gentle.
Intense hydrator/moisturiser!Beautiful product that doesn't irritate sensitive skin and absorbs quickly to hydrate and replenish tired, dull and flaky skin. I noticed a difference almost immediately - skin is plump and moisturised and fine lines seem to have lessened.
HydratingVery hydrating my skin loves it even though it’s pricey I would keep purchasing this product. No sticky feeling glides on smoothly your skin will thank you.
excellent hydratorI have used this for years. I love it.
it leaves the skin hydrated, like a drink of water.
Great HydratorI have been using this after cleansing and before moisturising each night for about a year. I love the lightness and simple use. If cleansing leaves the skin feeling a little tight, this really relaxes and soften the skin. It is easy to layer with other products. It is so simple and effective to use.
Great for oily skinAlthough I have oily skin, I experienced lots of dryness due to acne products. This serum moisturised my skin, without making it oily or congested. It’s great for my oily/ acne prone skin as it does not break me out. I love it! I use this over my Skinceuticals phloretin CF and then apply sunscreen after the B5 serum every morning. My skin looks more plump and healthy since using it. It doesn’t fee...Read More
very nice product for my skin, feel soft and smooth.very nice product for my skin, feel soft and smooth.
Must have in my regimeI recommend this to everyone and hate to think how dry my skin would be without it, its an absolute must and a feel-good refreshing product
Great under makeup but not worth the $$This provides the right amount of hydration for my normal/combo skin. 2 drops is enough for my whole face and it has a slightly tacky finish, which is perfect for applying foundation over. I have enjoyed using this product but it isn’t anything special and I don’t think it’s worth the price tag.
DisappointingBought this product on recommendation from others which turned out to be a major disappointment. Much prefer Photo Corrective Gel.
Not at all hydrating, skin is worse than it was before and is constantly dry.
