SkinCeuticals H.A. Intensifier vs. Hydrating B5 Gel
SkinCeuticals’ H.A. Intensifier vs. Hydrating B5 Gel
by Christina K.
SkinCeuticals has recently launched a new serum called H.A. Intensifier and it’s flying off the shelves! Since their launch I’ve been frequently asked what the difference is between their NEW serum vs. the Hydrating B5 Gel. So, I’ll explain below. They both contain Hyaluronic Acid but the way the products work are slightly different.
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring carbohydrate in the body that attract and hold moisture. Carrying up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, its moisture binding characteristic is very important when it comes to skin aging. As we age, our skin’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases which means it loses the ability to hold and retain a balanced amount of moisture.
H.A. Intensifier ($98) is a corrective serum formulated with licorice root and purple rice root extract to increase the skin’s own 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.
Hydrating B5 Gel ($82) is a moisturizer. It combines vitamin B5 with Hyaluronic Acid to strengthen the skin’s barrier and bind moisture to the skin. This oil-free serum will boost and enhance the effects of your daily moisturizer.
Skin Types – All
Skin Conditions – Sensitive, Dehydrated and Acne
Hydrating B5 Gel can be used alone or with your daily moisturizer for extra hydration.
Hyaluronic Acid is a popular ingredient that seems to be popping up in everyone’s favorite skincare product. 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.
