As you already know from my preview about Medik8 Skincare products, I received Hydr8 B5 Skin Rehydration Serum a while ago from Medik8 Romania for testing and review purposes. At first I must admit I was a bit skeptical about this product because I knew my skin is hydrated as I drink 2 – 3 liters of water daily and I have a good skincare routine, but after I tried the Hydr8 B5 serum I became addicted to it.
Hydr8 B5 has been designed to improve moisture levels within the skin. Contains skin-softening vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) and moisture-enhancing hyaluronic acid to quench your skin and provide 24 hours of nonstop hydration.

Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Skin Rehydration Serum (30 ml/ 1.0 fl oz for 204.00 Lei) comes in a transparent bottle together with a graduated dropper as a cap. The packaging itself facilitates the usage and application of this face serum because the graduated dropper incorporated can pick up just the right amount of product you need. I for example need only 0.2 ml or sometimes 0.3 ml because I have an oily skin type while others with dry or mature skin types can use up to 0.4 ml.
It’s a product designed for both dry and oily skin types and can be used even by those with sensitive skin like mine. It’s a skin hydration serum which also utilises the power of Hyaluronic Acid which helps to restore moisture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a clear oil-free gel that feels light-weight and non-greasy and instantly hydrates the skin leaving it smooth, silky, soft and moisturized. Honestly for me it feels like rubbing pearls into my skin, that soft and smooth it feels like. It absorbs immediately into the skin and leaves a nice semi-matte finish and a skin prepped for applying foundation.
It can also be used on stressed or irritated skin because due to its Vitamin B5 which is a powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-itching active your skin will be instantly hydrated and soothed. Sometimes skin can become irritated if we keep our makeup on longer than 8 hours or we had a stressful day, or went to a smoking place or a polluted area so I truly recommend the usage of this product after you removed your makeup to help relax your complexion, give that instant hydration and reduce any redness. Vitamin B5 also promotes skin rejuvenation and would healing.
I used Hydr8 B5 twice a day (morning & evening) alone for a few days and then I also star using it in combination with Medik8 C-Tetra (upcoming review) another great product. This combination is amazingly beneficial for every skin type looking for hydration, soothing, moisture and even for a mature skin type or those looking for an anti-aging combination of products. Hydrat8 B5 works amazing well with C-Tetra in the repair of sun-damaged skin.
In conclusion I would describe it as a must-have face elixir which improves skin’s resistance to stress as well as protects the skin from environmental damage.
