Skinceuticals is a brand that uses scientific research and antioxidant ingredients to create its products. it really focuses on the science behind ingredients, and forming them into a way that is easily absorbed by the skin. it’s a favourite of many cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists, and there are a few online retailers that sell the range however you will most likely find it in medi-spas.
Skinceuticals hydrating b5 gel incorporates two main ingredients, hyaluronic acid and vitamin b5. hyaluronic acid is a natural hydrator found in your skin, joints and eyes. it can hold up to 1000 times it’s own weight in water, which is pretty impressive and this helps to bind moisture to the skin. vitamin b5 hydrates and nourishes the skin, and is known for tissue repair.
My skin has never felt so smooth. i only use one to two drops of this, and i smooth this over my face and neck. i then follow with my moisturiser of choice, currently bliss triple oxygen + c energizing cream. it’s evened my skin type out, and just leaves my skin looking plumped and refreshed. at £59 for 30ml, it is a pricey product but i think well worth the investment.
