I just went to facial shop, the girl said I need it and it's good for me, so I bought it from there in a small bottle, she said this size for travel. HK$100 for 2 bottles.

Anyone used it before?

How small are the bottles? HK$100 for 2 bottles is *extremely* cheap for the B5 gel.

If you have dry skin then this is a good option to help with moisture. Did she tell you to use this underneath your moisturiser?

O, really good for dry skin?~~ Very Happy
yes, she asked me to use it twice per day, and apply it before the moisturiser, also she gave me a sample size of Skinceuticals Daily Moisture (moisturize). she said that b5 gel is very good for me, i can felt it three day after when I applied, don' know it's true or not! Wink

That's very interesting, because B5 (taken internally) is suppose to treat skin oiliness so it doesn't make sense for it to topically treat dry skin. Question

It is because it contains hyaluronic acid. Very hydrating... Smile

Apply your C serum first to a clean face, wait a few minutes, then the B5 gel. I use similar products around my eyes. Smile

I use the B5 Gel. I have oily skin that is dehydrated. So I follow with a light oil free moisturizer afterwards. The B5 binds moisture to your skin.

Some oily skins can use just the B5 on it's own.

It's a great product. I just finished one bottle. But because my skin's dry to normal I didn't think it moisturizing enough for me. Wouldn't repurchase.

I'm not too sure the size of it, i think around 5ml each, so hk$100 for 10ml, is it still *extremely* cheap?

Ok, in that case it's not super cheap but it's a very good deal nonetheless Smile
