Key Ingredients – Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin B5
Price – $74 SGD/50ml
Formulated with pro-vitamin B5 and pineapple ceramide, B-Hydra™ delivers steady hydration throughout the day, leaving the skin looking healthy and more illuminated.
One of the all-time cult favorite product from Drunk Elephant. It is supposed to hydrate and improve the looks of overall skin tone and texture. By now, everybody should already know the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). Vitamin B5, amongst other things, it is also a humectant that keeps the skin hydrated. This serum is formulated to be a jam-packed hydration boost for your skin.
I really enjoy the texture of this product, it absorbs and sinks into the skin almost immediately. It has a velvety texture, unlike many other HA-based serums that have watery-like texture. However, as a hydrating product, it does not feel as hydrating as other products available in the market. Also, the formulation is above average at best, for a HA-based product it is really pricey.
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid + B5
Hada Labo Goku-jyun Clear Lotion Super Hyaluronic acid lotion
La Roche Posay Hyalu B5 Serum
I feel that all three products listed are more cost-effective than what Drunk Elephant offers, and I personally much prefer the hydration Hada Labo and La Roche Posay offers.
Verdict – Will not repurchase, this is the only product from Drunk Elephant that I feel does not really live up to its claims.
