Works well, a bit out of my price range
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.
As a comparison to the Medik8 B5 in case anyone's wondering, I didn't notice any huge difference in terms of skin results as both do a great job but I did notice this one dried a little faster and didn't feel as sticky on my face while it dried. There's a significant price difference though and for me, it's not worth the extra $60 as I'm talking a matter of seconds in each case to dry.
Also, I find the name "Gel" a bit funny. It's liquid and you use a dropper to dispense. I would think of a gel as something solid and therefore heavier than a serum which is not the case here. Maybe that's just me though!
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. There are other cheaper products that do the same thing for my skin and won't repurchase unless it's on sale.
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 did for me.
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 gently massage it in. It feels like a cool gel and it will slowly run down your face if you don't massage it in. I have sensitive skin and no problems with reactions. Smells of virtually nothing. Try this product if you are feeling like you need fillers, especially around the cheek area.
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 be my next HG serum! Highly recommended!
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 applying the skinceuticals C E ferulic serum for the extra hydration and my skin feels amazing after using it.
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 one I want closest to my skin.
I love how minimal the serum is, I love how it slots into any routine, and while there are other hyaluronic acid serums that I do recommend, I think that this is the safest crowd pleasing-y-est in terms of texture.
That said... ouch, the price!
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 feel sticky like the The Ordinary Hyaluronic acid serum.
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.
