Did you know that with sensitive skin, wrinkles can appear 3 years earlier and loss of firmness can occur 10 years earlier? The brand new La Roche Posay Hyalu B5 Serum got my attention instantly because it promises to deal with all this quick smart! It’s all about Hyaluronic Acid, the packaging is really appealing and it promises to re-plump and repair skin in only one day. Here’s what you need to know!
So this little beauty has been specifically formulated for dehydrated and maturing sensitive skin. It claims to work on the signs of ageing such as loss of volume, loss of elasticity and fine lines or wrinkles.
Apparently skin that is sensitive can age up to 10 years faster than non-sensitive skin because it is in a state of chronic inflammation and permanently having to defend itself from external aggressors. This can lead to the immune system producing free-radicals that damage the skin’s structure.
The skin needs Hyaluronic Acid to be able to repair itself, however, by the time you reach 50 years of age, natural levels will have reduced by half.
La Roche Posay Hyalu B5 Features
- High molecular weight Hylaluronic Acid creates an invisible surface barrier to retain moisture and re-plump lines and wrinkles
- Low molecular weight Hylauronic Acid penetrates the skin for a deep re-plumping action and stimulates cellular renewal
- Vitamin B5 promotes natural barrier repair
- Madecassoside, a multi-effective molecule used to soothe and heal wounds
Clinical trials have shown that the serum immediately improves skin bounce and suppleness. After four hours, elasticity and firmness improves by 24% and hydration by 70%. After one month of use, 87% of testers reported more elastic skin, 87% said that skin looked more even and 71% said that wrinkles were reduced.
It is a lovely serum with a gorgeous texture that sinks into the skin quickly. It makes it look juicy, plump and fresh. I really like it because it gives a nice glow too.
It is similar to the NIOD MMCH2 that I adore, in terms of the different molecular weights of the HA for multi level penetration. It has less going on as the NIOD has 15 different types of Hylauronic Acid. They are very similar in terms of price.
The La Roche Posay Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum is £37 for 30ml is HERE now.
