About the brand.
Another skincare brand I am obsessed with.
Medik8 is a British, science-based skincare brand that has a results-focused approach.
The Medik8 mission is to “de-mistify anti-aging skincare”.
Medik8 is predominantly known for its retinol products, however, they do also have a fantastic range named ‘Calmwise’ which is brilliant for anyone suffering from sensitised or irritated skin.
In addition, the Hydr8 B5 serum is a bestseller for the brand.
What does the brand have to say?
“Infuse your skin with intense hydration and long-lasting moisture with Hydr8 B5, Medik8’s best-selling moisturising serum. Known for holding up to 1,000x its own weight in water, multi-weight hyaluronic acid draws and binds water from the atmosphere into the skin. Using an optimum blend of hyaluronic acid weights ensures skin is seriously moisturised from the deepest layers right up to the surface. “
“Enriched with vitamin B5 to improve skin’s water retention and regeneration, the skin is left plump and noticeably hydrated. The fast-absorbing, silky-smooth serum softens fine lines and wrinkles to leave skin supple, restored and nourished.”
What do you need to know?

Is there a cheaper alternative?
Yes. Linked below.
Is it worth the money?
Yes. Whilst there is a cheaper alternative, this is still a fantastic hydrating serum and with the addition of B5, you really do notice a difference.
What do we think?
This is one of my all-time favourite serums.
The consistency and texture is a dream to use. At first contact, the Hydr8 B5 has your usual serum consistency however, as you massage into the skin it changes to a watery liquid and soaks into the skin immediately.
I apply whilst my face is still damp, immediately after cleansing, to lock in all that additional moisture.
It is super hydrating and I notice a real difference to the plumpness of my complexion when I use this.
In addition, my skin is super soft and smooth.
Definitely worth a purchase.
Give your moisturiser a hydrating boost by adding a few drops of the Hydr8 B5. Saves on time whilst still giving you all of the benefits.
