Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel: My New Favourite Moisturiser!

HELLO! I love to try out any new or interesting versions of skincare products. So you can understand my enthusiasm when recently I was approached by the PR representing SKINCEUTICALS to try out two of their products and this review is about Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel and the review about the other will be posted by me in the coming days. Before going onto the review let me give you a brief primer about Skinceuticals. They are a world famous skincare company who create highly specialized skincare products developed through extensive scientific research. They are manufactured using a combination of antioxidant ingredients and some of them have even received patents in USA! Their products are sold only through a specialized distribution network comprising of Dermatologists, Cosmetic Surgeons and very high end Spas. The market is flooded with skincare products from various brands and are best suited for general everyday use but a time comes when these products don't work and you need some really serious skin care products and this is where Skinceuticals come in! Due to the high quality ingredients used and their been highly effective in treating skin conditions, Skinceuticals products are priced on the higher side but then they are worth every penny you spend! There was a time when I wouldn't spend more than 30 pounds on a skincare product, but after trying out the two Skinceuticals products I received for review I can say that henceforth I will not hesitate to spend more money to buy their products, I am so glad I got a chance to test these products on myself and now if someone asks me to return it back to them I will not do it!
Hydrating B5 Gel is a highly specialized moisturising fluid and is more suited for people whose skin has started to mature or age and ended up dry and sensitive! People on the younger side with skin problems shouldn't go for this as the first option and should preferably try correcting it with some over the counter skin care product and if that doesn't solve it, then you could try this product.

The Hydrating B5 gel comes in a small package and contains bottle with a dropper attached to it. The packaging and appearance of the products resemble more like that of something from a pharmaceutical company than a cosmetic brand but then the USP of their product is the content plus as its a serious skin care product they don't need to resort to fancy packaging to sell their products!

The website of Skinceuticals says the following about the Hydrating B5 gel - "Enriched with vitamin B5, which is known to help with tissue repair, Hydrating B5 replenishes nutrients the skin needs to feel smooth and appear younger. This moisture-enhancing gel contains hyaluronic acid, the body’s natural hydrator, to bind moisture to the skin. Hydrating B5 is recommended for use with vitamin C treatments and will help maximize the benefits of your daily moisturizer."

Ingredient List

Hydrating B5 Gel is mainly for your face and neck. As per the instructions you are supposed to take 4-5 drops of the product and apply. I use only 2 drops of the product to apply on my face and neck. The Hydrating B5 Gel which is a transparent and odorless serum but the thing which surprised me most was that inspite of such a small quantity I managed to spread it all over my face and neck! I was amazed at this! I usually need to use quite an amount of moisturiser to spread all over my face and neck and due to the low viscosity of Hydrating B5 Gel I was able to manage with just 2 drops! Immediately after applying the Hydrating B5 gel I could feel a nice firmness all over my face. it stays on for quite a long time. I also experimented it as a make up base/primer and it works fabulously! One thing I can say is it did not make my face break out, which most things that are suppose to aid in moisturizing my face, do!

I have been using the B5 hydrating Gel for almost 3 weeks now and I can see a considerable improvement in my face which feels firmer, younger and more hydrated!

So to conclude would I recommend the Skinceuticals B5 hydrating Gel ? Yes I would but mostly to people who are a bit mature in age and for all those who have certain skin problems which didn't get corrected using over the counter skincare products as the Hydrating B5 gel is a serious skincare product! Hydrating B5 Gel is my new staple item for glowing and youthful looking skin!
