SkinCeuticals’ H.A. Intensifier vs. Hydrating B5 Gel

SkinCeuticals recently released a new serum called H.A. Intensifier, and it’s flying off the shelves! Since the launch, guests frequently ask about the difference between their NEW serum vs. the Hydrating B5 Gel. They both contain Hyaluronic Acid, but the way the products work is slightly different.

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring carbohydrate in the body that attracts and holds moisture. Carrying up to 1,000 times its weight in water, this moisture-binding characteristic is very important when it comes to skin aging. Unfortunately, as we age, our skin’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases, meaning it loses the ability to hold and retain a balanced amount of moisture.

H.A. Intensifier ($106) is a corrective serum formulated with licorice root and purple rice root extract to increase the skin’s hyaluronic acid (HA) levels. It works in 3 ways:

  • Stimulates HA synthesis – prompting your skin to make more HA of its own
  • Preserves the existing HA
  • Hydrates instantly

Skin Types – All

Skin Conditions – Dehydrated and Aging

Apply H.A. Intensifier twice a day to help improve the skin’s firmness, elasticity, and plumpness.

SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 GelHydrating B5 Gel ($83) is a moisturizer combining vitamin B5 with Hyaluronic Acid to strengthen the skin’s barrier and bind moisture to the skin. This oil-free serum boosts and enhances the effects of your daily moisturizer.

Recommended for:

You can use Hydrating B5 Gel alone or alongside your daily moisturizer for extra hydration.

Hyaluronic Acid is a popular ingredient that seems to be popping up in everyone’s favorite skincare products. Rev up your skin’s moisture level by incorporating it into your daily skincare regimen. It’ll make a significant difference in your skin’s appearance by keeping it plumped and hydrated.

Hydrating B5 can be purchased here with free shipping over $99.
