In general, SkinCeuticals has some of the best serums on the market. I tend to rotate in a lot of their serums depending on what time of year it is or what skin concerns I am having at the time. One of my favorite winter staples is the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel. This serum is just what you need for that extra boost of hydration, especially if you get dry skin in the winter. Maybe you love your moisturizer and you don’t necessarily want something thicker or richer because you feel like it might make you oily, or that you could be more prone to breakouts with a heavy moisturizer. That’s exactly what the Hydrating B5 Gel is made for – it’s an oil free serum to replenish moisture and nutrients to the skin.
This serum is actually recommended for those who have acne prone skin because it gives perfect hydration without clogging pores! The serum is made from vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture to your skin! What I love about it is that it preps my skin to get double the amount of hydration from my moisturizer without having to double up on anything too heavy. My skin doesn’t get oily at all after using it. This serum is made for all skin types! I use it at night and a little goes a long way on clean skin. I roll on my B5 Gel to my face with my jade roller. Over it, I’ll apply my night moisturizer…right now I am using the La Mer Soft cream. Lastly, I apply my eye cream and then any corrective serum for dark spots! Give this gel a try, I am HUGE on using serums to keep my skin young, healthy and radiant – the earlier you start taking care of your face the better!! SkinCeuticals is expensive but has some of the best serums in the market, it is definitely worth the investment. My skin is so dewy and radiant – this product is great and will last you a really long time!
