Most Helpful Positive

hydrant and not oily


It really helped my dehydrated skin. Since I easily get pimples, I afraid of using moisturiser so this one definitely is the one I;m looking for - not oily but can hydrate my skin well! Plus. It wont cause any pimples!!! I love it so much!

Most Helpful Criticism

Better products for cheaper


Very hydrating, received as sample, & immediately put on moisturiser afterwards to lock in the moisture, but honestly, there are other just as effective hyaluronic "gels" for capturing moisture without this price point.
  1. Good!


    Very hydrating, with Phyto Corrective, it can play a role in maintaining stability and repairing skin.
  2. Hydrating but pricey


    It really hydrates my skin and leave my skin really smooth. It is not greasy at all and got absorbed really quickly. I like it is not strongly scented. However, it is quite expensive and I think there are other products would do the same job with a cheaper prices.

  4. Silky


    Received a sample of this product, have really enjoyed it. Nice silky texture and there is a very nice glow with it in comparison to other HA products i have used. Is pricey though.
  5. Gimme glow


    Oh yeah, this is great, just what my skin needs. The ingredients are minimal and it shows, there's no 'sugarcoating' with this serum, no nasties. My skin feels plump, soft and glowing after use and it doesn't matter if you use it in the morning or evening. Also great over your lips and eyes.
  6. Does the job but a bit pricey


    It really does the job but a bit pricey for the only hydrating function.
  7. Very hydrating serum


    I use this daily, it keep my skin feel hydrated. I use it with CE FERULIC in the morning, it is quickly absorbed by my skin and doesn’t pill. It is expensive and I did try other alternative products, however I always go back to this Skinceuticals B5 gel as is more effective than others....guess you get what you pay for.
  8. My all time favorite


    This serum seriously keep my skin hydrated and complexion clear. I use it in combination of HA+B5 and it is particularly effective on my skin in terms of keeping my skin feels soft & comfortable, less breakout and blackheads. Highly recommended!
  9. awesome, but expensive


    This liquid is quickly absorbed and doesn’t pill from the skin :) .
    it is expensive but last 6 months at least. Worth It
  10. Not sticky!


    My serums always go sticky except skinceuticals! Love this product. Even use it on my lips!
  11. Best Hydration Product!!

    Shelley S

    This is definitely the first product you should try from Skin Ceutical! The texture of this serum is smooth and definitely keeps you hydrated all day. Only need 3 drops a time and therefore you can use it for a quite long period. Hope to have a 50ml next time on this website!!!
  12. Moisture in a bottle!


    Loving this gel - I used it after my morning Vitamin C serum and in the evening after my retinol. Since starting to use this I have noticed a patch of dermatitis on my neck has also really improved - super happy and have just purchased a second bottle!
  13. It’s works


    For me, it’s perfect combo with CE FERULIC. Hydrating B5 is a liquid little bit aqueous that is quickly absorbed and doesn’t pill.
    it is expensive but you have it for 6 months (I don’t use it the evening) 3 drops are enough and it’s effective. But I still keep looking for a less expensive equivalent
  14. Supercharged hydrating serum!


    I absolutely love this serum, it's hardcore hydration from the hyaluronic acid and with B5 makes it's supercharged for tissue repair. It fits in so well with my routine and helps maximise the benefits of what I layer it with.
  15. Regret buying it.


    That time of the year where Persephone has to go to Hades and winter is back again then my skin followed her and becomes dry. Received this as a sample and tried using it for 3-4 days and it was really good to my skin, felt hydrated at first and decided to buy a bottle (closed my eyes while typing that card number, cause it was hefty expensive lol, kidding). The serum is fast absorbing and it tig...

  16. So Good


    This is my favourite HA serum. It instantly sinks into the skin and hydrates. It feels cool on the skin, has a lovely texture and is not sticky. This serum is literally a drink of water for your skin. It is great for oily skin, that needs water hydration. Sadly I go through this so quick and it is expensive, however I will keep buying because it is so worth it.
  17. Not convinced


    Does hydrate but is also quite sticky, doesn’t smell great (kind of like plastic) and doesn’t do much amazing for the price.


    I said it is one of the best because I can give you many other options such as Medik8, Paula Choice ( B3 / B5 ), Skinmedica,... and a lot more. But for now, I would say it’s better than any of your hydrating serum, guaranteed 100%. Forget about your The Ordinary from Chemist & Priceline, it’s time for your skin to glow. It does as it says, and 1 more thing: I love the simply ingredients of the pr...

    Leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated. No strong scent and no oily residue
  20. Better products for cheaper

  21. Super hydrating!


    First time using this product, I purchased it because my face was looking dull with congestion. I’m 2 weeks into using this now and it’s really hydrated my skin making it glow and keeping it very smooth! I use it after a few drops of Medik8 Vitamin C As it’s recommended to use after vitamin C. I’ll defiantly be repurchasing this again!
  22. Quality product


    I've used a few Hyaluronic Acids from various brands and at different price points, and I really like this one because it absorbs into the skin really well. With other brands, because it doesn't absorb as well, when I layer my serums on top, it doesn't mix well and I can see and feel the Hyaluronic Acid coming off. The only reason I'm taking 0.5 stars off is because it is one of the more expensive...

  23. The best I've used!!


    I bought the SkinCeuticals gift set during the at the end of 2019 and this HA B5 gel is included. The combination of HA+B5 is frequently seen in skincare but this one is particularly effective on my skin in terms of hydration and accelerating healing blemish scar. It is expensive so I will happily repurchase if it comes in a set :)
  24. Amazing hydrating product


    I started using this after a lapse in judgment led to a waxed upper lip while using retinol, whoops! My skin was extremely tight and red, but after using this with Skinceuticals' Hydra Balm on top, my skin has pretty much completely healed in five short days! It's extremely hydrating and like other reviewers have said, a little goes a long way (and I've been reapplying a few times a day to help wi...

  25. like it but pricey


    I can't believe I hadn't bought this before! This stuff is so good. It's lasted me ages - a little goes a long way.
  26. Smoothing


    I received this product as a sample in my last order. I wasn't so sure with using the product but my face felt super hydrated after using. It is a bit pricey for a full body but loved trialling the sample
  27. Love!


    I received a sample of this, and have been using this for a few weeks, and I am going to purchase the full size - it is very hydrating, and I have been using this day and night before my moisturiser.
  28. Nice product but


    This is a lovely product and there is noting wrong without. Light weight, absorbs really fast and not overly scented but I find Medik 8 B5 to do just as good as a job for a cheaper price point without sacrificing quality.
  29. Brilliant but expensive


    I received a sample of this and found it amazing for giving my skin hydration and glow, if you are able to spend I would say this is the best vitamin B gel out there but could find cheaper alternatives
  30. Lovely but dear


    This is nice product but the price is far too insane to justify purchasing. I've used similar products which have had the same effect, if not better.
  31. help moisturize but not sure if it's worth the price

    Chi Chi

    I got this as a sample and the 15ml bottle last me for a few months. I only need 1-2 drops for the whole face because it's very thick. It does the job to moisturize your skin with a very little amount but I'm not sure about any other the results it brings to my skin. I couldn't notice any changes to my skin by adding this Serum to my Am and Pm routine. I used SkinCeuticals CE Serum in the morning ...

  32. Wish I found it sooner

    Emily Jayne

    I'm fairly new to the world of Vitamin B serums, but this one has wowed me. I normally have an extremely oily t-zone and somehow, this magical serum has reduced that dramatically. Absorbs quickly and feels nice and light.
  33. Good hydration product


    Love 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.
  34. Dry skins bff


    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.
  35. Great serum


    This 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
    Great stuff.
  36. Excellent Vit B5/Hyaluronic Serum


    Excellent 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.
  37. lightweight, absorb fast


    This 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.
  38. Surprised ,it works


    Very good for my oily skin. Make skin less oily .
  39. A good gel moisturizer

    Monica S

    It 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.
  40. light hydrating and plumps up skin


    An 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.
  41. Amazing consistency


    I 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
  42. Lightweight


    I love that the Hydrating Gel is so lightweight and easily absorbs into the skin, leaving no residue. It feels hydrating, leaving my skim smooth
  43. 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.
  44. So hydrating


    Got 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.
  45. Great Hydration


    I 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.
  46. Nice serum


    The 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.
  47. Brilliant


    I 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 ...

  48. 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!
  49. 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.
  50. Like no other Hyaluronic Acid I've tried


    I'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!
  51. Best product for dehydrated skin

    Tiffany Nguyen

    This 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.
  52. Really nice product


    I 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.
  53. Good product


    Received 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.
  54. Light weight and suit my combination skin


    I 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.
  55. I use it everyday


    Now I've started using this I can't stop. It makes my skin feel so soft and fresh!
  56. Free sample


    Got 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.
  57. 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.

  58. 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!
  59. Love


    my 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
  60. Good product


    I 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.
  61. 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.
  62. Love


    I 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.
  63. 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!
  64. Nice, but wouldn’t spend my own money on it


    I 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...

  65. Good addition


    I 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.

  66. Received Free Sample


    Very smoothing and hydrating however I probably wouldn't spend the money to buy a full size.
  67. B5 Hyaluronic Acid


    I 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.
  68. Great product


    This 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.
  69. the best product I have found


    If 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...

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...

  71. Tried sample


    Wow! 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!!!!!
  72. A small amount goes a long way with this


    Yes, 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.
  73. do a pretty good work of hydrating your skin


    I 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
  74. Great hydration


    Loving 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...

    I 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
  76. Works but not worth it


    It 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)
  77. Hydrating B5 Gel


    ahhhh 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.
  78. A winner


    This is one product you can’t do without! Very hydrating and little goes a long way.
  79. Good product with great result

    Chi Nguyen

    It helps my skin feel more comfortable in the morning, reduce the redness. The swelling has completely collapsed and the acne spots dry out completely.
  80. So nourishing


    This 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.
  81. Expensive! But my presheeeeessss

    Shannon (Adore Beauty Staff)

    Man 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...

  82. My new top favourite serum for hydration


    I 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!
  83. Very hydrating


    It 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.
  84. 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.
  85. Hydrating


    Very 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.
  86. excellent hydrator


    I have used this for years. I love it.
    it leaves the skin hydrated, like a drink of water.
  87. Great Hydrator


    I 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.
  88. Great for oily skin


    Although 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...

    very nice product for my skin, feel soft and smooth.
  90. Must have in my regime


    I 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
  91. 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.
  92. Disappointing


    Bought 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.
