    Changed my skin in the winter!!! I live in Chicago and my skin often gets irritated, red, and flakes in the winter because I walk everywhere. This Hydra b5 gel has changed my skin!! Just as good as products twice the cost.

    I live in Montreal, Canada where we suffer from exceedingly cold, dry winters. This year has been particularly harsh, and I’m so glad I purchased the Hydra B5 Gel after having so much success with other CSS products. I have been using it for three weeks now and my skin feels so much more hydrated and nourished! It applies like silk, absorbs quickly, and keeps my skin moist and dewy. As always with CSS, no reaction to my sensitive skin, visible results and excellent value for money!

    This gel works really well to improve spots and overall skin elasticity and quality. TI do have to keep using it to improve my overall skin quality. No complaints though! I can see visible differences between days I use it and days I don’t use it

    I tried the Hydra B5 Gel and it is liquid silk on my combination skin. Perfect in the winter for the dry spots on my face and light enough for summer days. Works wonders combined with the Vitamin C + E serum. Will buy the 2 oz format this time.

    I’ve recently switched from a much higher priced B5Gel product to the Cosmetic Skin Solutions B5Gel. It feels like liquid silk on my face and is absorbed instantly. Love the product! Also use the Vitamin C 20% Serum – another outstanding, yet reasonably priced products. I’ll be a Cosmetic Skin Solutions customer from now on! Outstanding products and customer service!!

    This product is amazing!i have tried a lot of hydra B5 from other brands,but Cosmetic Skin Solutions Hydra B5 makes my skin feel totally hydrated and smoother! This product worked wonders on my horrible dried out skin from the harsh winter season!

  11. Rated 5 out of 5


    Great Serum. I love it! I have a very dry skin but this serum really helps my skin look radiant and looking fresh. I am so happy with the results! This is the most inexpensive of all skin hydration products with hyaluronic acid. I have been using this type hydration for at least 15 years with another brand at twice the price. This is a bargain and it has no parabens or other unfavorable, harsh chemical ingredients so I consider it the greenest of hydrators.

    Excellent value for the price. Highly recommended B5 product. I will repurchase.

    My best friend’s daughter recommended the above product to me in late June this year. You only need to use a small amount and it sbsorbs. It brings radiance and firmness to my skin. Price is also reasonable when compared with other brands. For a lady in her late 60’s, it still helps!

    I happened on Cosmetic Skin Solutions by chance and have never looked back. I use the Hydra B5 together with the Vitamin C + E Advanced Formula.
    They make a winning combination for smoother, younger looking skin. Go for it!

    I love this product! I have definitely noticed an improvement, my skins seems much more hydrated. Is great underneath moisturizer

  27. Rated 5 out of 5


    I know this brand when I was searching skinceuticals on the web, every reviews are saying it’s perform the same but at much lower price so I give it a try. I have a very dry and sensitive skin but it is just so moisturizing that i can feel every drops of serum immediately go straight into my skin. The ingredients are natural that it don’t give me any breakout. i got so many compliments from my friends and they have already followed me to use it.

    I would recommend it to everyone of you. It is a must have skin care and I would suggest to buy this larger size.

    PS I am hope that they would even offer the 240ml size!

    I’ve been using several different combinations of Cosmetic’s products for almost two years and have found the Hydra B5 Gel and Vitamin C 20% is giving me excellent results. I use them both morning and evening and I am really pleased. The fine lines under my eyes have diminished and my skin tone is smooth and even.

    I was using the CSS full range of products for about a year! I am pleased and highly recommended this line b/c I have combination and sensitive skin and these products are excellent in allowing my skin to achieve firmness, hydration, even skin tone, and a noticeable reduction in wrinkle depth.

    These products penetrate beneath the skin very well. I once had used Cellex-C, yet I immediately became attached to CSS products’ due to the results, effectiveness, and solid price point! I will continue to use this line b/c I have been experiencing nothing but results! My skin looks and feels healthy! Thank you.

    The only “moisturizer” that doesn’t break me out or make me oily. I later this over my vitamin c serum and eye gel. I use it morning and night and it immediately makes my skin feel tighter. This is definitely a product I will continue to purchase

    I’ve been using the B5 for about 3 years. I use it every day during the winter, and alternate with the Phloretin and the Phyto. It provides the extra hydration I need during the cold months. I was worried that my sensitive skin would have to adjust to it, but I’ve never had any irritation (with this or any other CSS product).

    Melody, convinced loyal customer’s honest view

    I bought this product after purchasing the sample set and I am convinced that this product works. I have been using it on my face, neck, and hands. I see dramatic improvements and appreciate CSS for making this product available at an affordable price. My skin use to be very dry prior to using this product. My skin is very sensitive to certain ingredients, and after research the ingredients in this product are good.

    Use Tip: Apply the Hydra B5 gel with a day cream for best moisture absorption/retention.

    Side note: I saw improvements with this product after about 4-5 days of use. My eczema on my hand is also improving drastically with the help of this hydra b5 gel.

    THANK YOU CSS! Please never stop making this great product!

    This gel is the best I have ever used. I have a skin that is very dry but at the same time extremely acneprone. Most mosturizing gels I have used tend to make me break out. This doesn’t break me out at all, it even helps calm down my breakouts! I would definitely recommend this product!

    Upon recommendation from my dermatologist I had purchased a similar product line. In search for something less expensive, I found Cosmetic Skin Solutions. I have used the Hydra B5 gel, Vitamin C + E Serum, and the Phloretin Serum and have found the quality to be extremely comparable to the other product line. I love them all! Thank you.

    i like to try new skincare and was hoping around looking for something hydrating after i noticed flaky skin on my cheeks. I tried numerous products claiming to boost the hydration but to no avail. Thats when i decided to come back to CSS B5 gel and it never disappoint me. The flakiness was gone in 2 days and i now know what really works.

    I ordered the B5 gel in my second order from CCS having read the reviews and exereicned the benefits of the Phyo and Vit C 20%. The gel has a great texture, goes on smoothly and completley hydrates your skin (a little goes a long way – I’m only a fraction through the bottle in comparison to using the Vic C and Phyto serums which have only about 1/4 left) it gives me a nice glow and realy tightens the skin – I use to have botox on my forehead and should be at the stage of needing a top up but I really havent felt the need to do this since using CCS products as my lines are pretty much non existant and just looks really fresh…great combo for using with the Vit C. Great product and highly recommend it.

    I use almost all of CSS product line and love it! My skin is really fair, and I’m 42, but people think I’m in my early 30’s. The reason why I love the hydra B is that it rapidly reduces any sores, or scars. So if you use glycolic acid after the treatment hydra B is great for repairing the damage to the skin. Or if you do a derma roll with needles, same thing hydra B is great for after treatment. Plus when you have the occasional acne breakout, you can treat it with hydra B and it will deminish it quickly. I gave some to my mom, so she could put on her scar for scar therapy after her knee replacement, it worked wonders! Much more than just for hydrating!

    My 3 favorite Cosmetic Skin Solutions products are the 20% Vitamin C Serum, Hydra B5 gel, and the Day Moisturizing Creme. These are the 3 items I use daily, in the morning. The 20% Vitamin C goes on first on a clean face. My face is brighter and seems tighter with daily use. Once the Vitamin C has absorbed I use the Hydra B5 gel over the Vitamin C. I love the Hydra B5 as it absorbs to a matte. This definitely helps with the fine lines and wrinkles and again my face feels and looks smoother and moist and tighter.

    Finally, I follower with the moisturizer which also absorbs to a matte finish. My face looks good all day. For someone who is 67 years old that is saying something. Now my wish list for Cosmetic Skin Solutions. A gentle scrub that I can use daily before apply the other skin care products and something for the neck area. Great products at an affordable price. Thank You

    Hydra B5 Gel tones instantly. Just purchased this as part of a combo pack. Saw the great reviews and the price is great. Instantly saw toning and tightening. Have only been using it a few days on my super sensitive skin and am in love with the results. I am usually allergic or very sensitive to many beauty products, creams and peels. This line, so far, has not given me any adverse effects. I’m 42 and am using this on my face, neck and LOVE it. Will continue to monitor and report back longer term results. Thank you CSS!!!!

    Just another satisfied customer

    I discovered Cosmetic Skin Solutions after hearing about hyaluronic acid. When I saw the customer reviews and the prices compared to other brands I decided to give CSS products a try. Having tried so many products, I thought this was just another brand at a very reasonable price. That is, until I started getting compliments after only a few days of use! Apparently, the change is noticeable. I don’t normally take the time to leave product reviews. I just thought it would be helpful for others to know – for many years I have been spending so much on skin care products until I discovered Cosmetic Skin Solutions. My skin looks so healthy I get compliments without make-up on. Thanks to CSS for saving me a lot!

    Couldn’t Be More Satisfied! After completing several skin treatments to my face resulting from years of excessive sun exposure my dermatologist recommended that I start using a moisturizer and products containing Vitamin B5 and a Ferulic Acid to restore my skin. After initially using more expensive brands containing these ingredients it was recommended to me to try Cosmetic Skin Solutions by a friend who is a lot more knowledgeable about skin care than I. I could not be more satisfied with my switch to CCS. I use both the B5 Hydrating Gel and the C+E Ferulic Serum in the morning and the B5 Hydrating Gel again before bed. Both products spread ability is incredible. Actually now I no longer need to use a after shave in the morning. At 63 I never thought I would get compliments on my skin. Cosmetic Skin Solutions has a customer for life.

    I purchased this product based on the current interest in products with hyaluronic acid and for the price and volume it seemed like a good bet. In just two weeks of use, morning and night, today my husband noticed that the prominent winkle between my eyes was less obvious.

    While in my late 50’s I work at keeping a good skin regimen and have only a few prominent wrinkles, so for him to make an unsolicited comment – well, that speaks volumes. The gel feels light going on with a slight tightening effect. Works great under make up. This is the first Product Review I have even written on a hyaluronic acid and it’s because I’m truly impressed with this product.

    I have been using this line of products for a while now. I have to say; after all these years I finally found something that works! From the Hydra B5, to the Resurfacing Serum to the Firming Eye Gel,,,,all Unbelieveable! They give dramatic results and are a girls ‘must have’ in her skin care regime.
