Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for oily skin! I have extremely oily skin. But even oily skin needs moisturizing. This is the only product I've found that doesn't add to my oiliness. It is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin already feels softer and healthier I recently decided to try the Hydrating B5 Gel, and surprise--it actually does what it promised! After adding it to my skincare routine 3 weeks ago, I can definitely see an improvement. My skin is healthier, softer, and retains its hydration--even as the weather has me drying out! It absorbs nicely, and will work under foundation. I rarely ever say this, but I think this stuff really works, guys. My skin feels really soft, and maybe even a little brighter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure I’ve used many Skinceuticals serums. There’s nothing bad to say about B5 gel. It doesn’t irritate my skin. However It evaporates so fast when putting it on that sometimes it doesn’t feel like I’ve put anything on my face at all. I like the retexturizing activator a lot better. Giving this 3 stars. It’s not excellent but it isn’t bad either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Hydrator I have very dry skin and needed something more than a daily moisturizer for my skin. This hydrating gel is now a staple in my skin regimen and has brought my skin back to normal. Skinceuticals products are incredibly high quality and I'm sure I'll now be using them for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instantly Improved I received a sample of Hydrating B5 Gel ( thank you ! ) , and used the product for 3 days. It is silky in texture, indeed. Only drops were needed for my whole face, and neck. I have certain areas that are problematic - the starting of marionette lines, and rough , sensitive patchy areas I have are right along that area - I saw a nice improvement especially there , and that`s just where I need to see how well this product worked. Those areas felt and looked relieved, smooth, less apparent , more even toned ,and moisturized. Fine lines plumped out , and not a sign of tiny flakes or bumps of dry skin. B5 Gel provided great moisture, and is super gentle . Although I am not concerned with oils in my products , I found the oil free formula was great as it did not have to contend with any oils that may be in my other products such as a cream moisturizer / spf lotions , primer, and foundations. My skin looked instantly improved . I am 50ish , maturing skin , with sensitive skin areas, and I would recommend to those with my own issues, and those who might have oily skin issues, as B5 Gel is oil free, gentle, and easily absorbed .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensitive Skin This product is simply wonderful 2-3 drops covers my entire face and neck. The consistency is not oily or overly running- instantly refreshing. I have extremely sensitive/reactive skin since I use a prescription tretenoin gel and I feel this works beautifully under my moisturizer. Love love love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot get enough of Skinceuticals & I think this is one of their best serums. It is so lightweight. It just sinks in the skin & provides mega hydration. Really does give your skin a drink & plumps it up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the feel I received the Hydrating B5 as a sample. I love the feel. What I mean is the product is not oily or greasy feeling on my skin. The drying time is a little quicker than I would like. Because it’s almost instant I wasn’t sure I was covering all the areas needed. I did notice some change in my laugh lines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like first the shape of this transparent bottle, which makes it easy to take in hand. This bottle is very simple but it is very convenient with its pipette. The pipette gives the exact amount of drops to apply on the face. The 30ml format can easily fit in the suitcase. The texture is liquid, fluid and very light. The application is very pleasant because the serum is fresh, which is great on hot days. It stretches easily and penetrates quickly without leaving a greasy film on my skin. I do not know how to define what I smell for. It is a very natural and vegetal scent, which disappears on application. After using this serum for several weeks, my skin is visibly more plumped and hydrated. This serum makes my skin silky without greasing my skin. My skin has visibly changed because I have a much brighter complexion and my skin is smoother and softer. My skin looks younger and I feel that small wrinkles disappear. I think it's an excellent value for money. This format is hyper-economical. I use it every day and yet I will have it for 2-3 months. I advise you to apply it in the morning and evening, after cleansing your skin and before the moisturizer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent product I bought this about 3 months ago. Goes a long way. I felt my face is more supple and soft. My face was dry before because I was using medication that my dermatologist gave me and it was peeling my face and it became very dry. This goes so we'll with the moisturizer. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from keeps my skin hydrated and moisturized I've been using skinceuticals for over 10 years when i started getting regular facials and it was recommended by my aesthetician. It is an awesome product and the results are amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I tried this out for a few weeks and I have to say I'm really impressed with this hyaluronic acid hybrid serum. I put it on after my Essence and before my moisturizers and facial oils. It just seems like it's such a good quality hyaluronic acid and it did a great job of trapping in moisture preventing transepidermal water loss. I liked how tacky it would get to let me know I've evenly distributed it on my face. I definitely want to re-buy the full-size now

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST hydrating serum ever. It literally soaks into the skin immediately and you can feel the instant plumping effect. It doesn’t feel thick or heavy on the skin even during the summer and I have repurchased this maybe 10+ times already!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sensitive skin Its been more than a week since I started using this product. I have acne scars and my skin is very sensitive. This product did not cause any break outs. I use a moisturizer after applying this gel and my skin feels super soft. I will wait for a couple of more weeks to find out any significant differences in my skin. So far, I am liking this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So hydrating! I just got a sample of this with my last order and I think I am hooked! It is so hydrating and perfect to use with the daily moisturizer when my skin is feeling a little dry! Especially after getting a facial with peels! I’ve noticed the nice glow my skin once is back when I use this! I’ve been battling adult acne for the past 3 years and this seems like it will be a nice addition to my arsenal. I’m so glad I got the sample. In love with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! I love this serum. My skin is very very sensitive. It provides extra moisture and helps my makeup go on very smoothly and dewy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Product Works! Hyluronic Acid is a game-changer in hydrating the skin! I've tried different hyluronic acid products and have been unhappy with the outcomes until I tried SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel. I love how it quickly melts into the skin and starts making the skin feel moist and actually plumper. I use it over the C, E, and Ferulic Acid serum every day. My skin is moist, glowing and with less visible fine lines. This product never disappoints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Moisture I have been using this product for almost 20 years now, and it has definitely improved my skin's overall hydration without being oily or leaving my skin shiny. I have normal-to-dry, somewhat sensitive skin, and the B5 Gel has worked miracles. I need less of my overall moisturizer because the B5 Gel sinks into my skin and then pulls my moisturizer more deeply into my skin and leaves the texture just right for applying make up. I am consistently told that I look 10-15 years younger than my age and I think the B5 gel has a great deal to do with that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my daughter loved this I have mature skin and this wasnt hydrating enough for me, I prefer the HA intensifier; however my teenage daughter loved this. It was the perfect hydration for her without causing acne

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have Use this everyday. Just a couple drops after your vitamin c serum and your face will be hydrated, refreshed, and glowing. Not sure what we'd do without it.
