Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a product I don't want to love due to the price but I do. It does leave a slight stick to your face, which for me is fine once I massage in my moisturizer. Also, it has not effected my makeup. Either when I wear primer or do not. I have sensitive skin that can be on the dryer side from using Retin-A 1% cream in my night routine. I do occasional peels and try to exfoliate regularly. In winter months all of that can be rough. Especially when I travel between climates. This does help with all of that and makes my akin feel plump up. Does it help other products work better? I feel like it may. It is soothing if you get a professional service. This was introduced to me by my derm. I am 37, and do not have many fine line or wrinkles. I do have some sun damage, this is something I use with my brightening products. I recommend giving this a try if you have dry skin and need a boost in your routine. I have only found one other product that isn't as good to slightly be able to compare to this. Which is by Inky List at Sephora if you need to save your money and or cannot afford this. You can just use that and the Inky Lust peptide serum in combination and pretty much get the same effect. Neither breaks me out. I will repurchase this though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love, love, love this product! I combine it with the CE Ferulic (also from this brand) and I feel like it makes my skin look so glowy and dewy. It really has a great moisturizing effect. My skin feels so soft and supple after using it. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Guys This product is superb! I use it twice daily, morning after the shower and night before bed. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a film. It’s simply the best product I’ve ever used and I’ve tried them all at every price point! Because of the pandemic I was out for a week and really noticed the difference You will not be disappointed...promise!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great addition to a summer skincare routine if you aren’t going as heavy on moisturizer. Very light and soaks into the skin very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another 5 star product from skinceuticals. This has a bit of a sticky texture but it’s very hydrating and smoothing. You can use this morning or night and expect your skin to feel much more plump and hydrated. It’s competitively priced for a medical grade product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is by far my new favorite product. I love using this after I get BBl done. But I honestly just love using it after I use my vitamin C. The moisture is amazing. No smell. Doesn’t make me break out. I feel like I’m glowing. It’s expensive but it is SO worth it. Love this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this as a moisturizer after cleansing and applying my serum (vitamin C in the morning and iS CLINICAL active serum at night). I have combination/acne prone skin, and in the winter, I use it as a base layer on my cheeks before applying my moisturizer, and in the summer, I use it solely as my moisturizer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I love skinceuticals generally but this moisturizer absorbs so fast without feeling like I have any moisture left on my skin. It just isn’t enough moisture and I don’t have dry skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have dry skin, BUY THIS RIGHT NOW. Skinceuticals is expensive, but you get what you pay for. It is incredibly hydrating. I use it morning and night. One drop can cover your entire face. I use two so I can go down my neck. This is for sure one of my favorite skincare items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you’re using retinols in your skin care routine, they tend to dry you out, add this product to your routine. I love the skin turnover from retinols but my skin dries out so easy. I use this in the morning before moisturizer and I use my retinal at night and it’s been helping so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can’t live without this during the winter months. My skin gets so dry and starts flaking and peeling around my nose and mouth but after just a couple uses of this everything goes back to normal. it’s so lightweight and can be layered with other products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my favorite B5 gel that I have used EVER. The packaging is basic medical grade skinceuticals so it’s nice. I miss this b5 everyday and can’t wait until I can afford it again. Would HIGHLY recommend to others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this I bought this to use as a moisturizer under makeup during the summer. I live in a southern and humid climate, but tend to have dry skin. This works great! For reference, I’m 34, light skin, dry and very sensitive skin with rosacea. This does not bother my skin or increase redness/irritation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great lightweight moisturizer. If I’m super dry I like to add this into my night or day cream. My husband loves to use this for his aftershave. It’s not sticky at all like other hyaluronic acids I’ve tried and it dries very quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use this in the morning before my skin medica HA5. Obsessed with hyaluronic acids. This one feels good because it’s a gel but I like the HA intensifier better if I had to choose. I use this in the morning and HA intensifier at night

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING !!!! It’s expensive but it’s so worth it! My skin feels SO AMAZING afterwards. I use it every night. Right before my moisturizer. It really does make a difference in your skin. My pores have gotten smaller and my skin over all more even. Sooo worth it
Date published: 2020-06-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great, if you are seeking a product for the purpose of hydration, look no further. This product is worth it’s weight in gold. A little goes a long way, your skin will thank you! It is slightly pricey, although definitely worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Took my a while to believe the hype but it’s worth it if you can afford it. Makes my skin so much more plump and smoothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product provides SO much hydration to the skin. I was recommended this by my Aesthetician

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow! I’m so impressed with this serum! It’s really gentle and doesn’t sting anywhere on my face when I apply it. It then absorbs into my skin rather quickly leaving my skin feeling a bit moisturized. I’ve been using it for about a week now and I’ve also notice that my blackheads on my nose seem to be disappearing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I needed a product to keep my combination oily/dry skin moisturized without leaving an oily residue or look while achieving that supple and glowy look all day and I could not be happier with the way this product has transformed my skin. I apply it every morning and even before makeup and my skin has never looked better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the most amazing hyaluronic acid ever in the price when it’s not too bad last a long time makes a big difference it’s the OG

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After using this product just once, I could feel the moisture soaking into my skin. After using every night for the last couple weeks, my skin has never been so hydrated, and never leaves me feeling greasy! Also, you only need 3-4 drops to cover your whole face, so a little goes along way and will last for months! Highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice hydrating serum. I used it under my moisturizer when I need an extra boost. My skin is on the dryer side. It left my skin feeling hydrated and smooth. Would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff if absolutely amazing. I love how it makes my skin look and feel after using it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My skin is glowing I have been using this product for about two weeks now (I know, not long enough to notice a crazy difference) but I figured I would give my first impressions. This product has a watery consistency that absorbs into the skin super fast, isn't sticky and hasn't pilled (under moisturizer or facial oil). I use the B5 gel twice a day (AM/PM) along side other Skinceuticals such as the equalizing toner and the blemish+age defense serum and they pair really well together. I usually give my serums a minute or two to absorb to prevent pilling and give it some time to sink in. This is a fast absorbing serum, like crazy fast, so fast that I forget if I put it on because my skin will feel dry to the touch, which I really enjoy because I hate the feeling of product build up, but not tight! I could not see this as a product that replaces a moisturizer, but would work great alongside a good one. Since I am still getting to know this product I gave it three stars, but have a feeling I will enjoy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this hydrating gel. It is super hydrating . In my opinion it’s definitely worth the price . Skin ceuitcals is top of the line

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I absolutely love SkinCeuticals and the products they have to offer, because they work! This product is great for after treatments but I wouldn’t recommend for long term use. I don’t fully see the purpose in it. I didn’t feel that is was overly hydrating. You would get better hydration with the Hyaluronic products.
