medik8 hydra8 B5 and nourishing body cream review

Don’t you just love skincare gifts sets?

Take Medik8 Face & Body Indulgence Gift Set, for example. It features 5 of the brand’s best-selling moisturisers to keep your skin soft and supple from head to toe. (Yes, I know it was a Christmas release).

Like, if you don’t know whether to get the hydrating serum or facial oil, now you can try both without breaking the bank. And when you fall in love with something, you can buy it separately whenever you want. Here’s what it contains:

Medik8 Hydra B5

Medik8 Hydr8 B5 is like a waterfall of moisture for your skin.

This baby is loaded with Hyaluronic Acid and panthenol, two moisture magnets that attract moisture into the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is so powerful, it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water.

All that moisture makes your skin really happy: it plumps up fine lines and wrinkles so they look smaller, makes skin softer and gives the complexion a dewy glow.

Panthenol goes a step further: it has soothing properties that calm down redness and irritations. Always a nice plus in winter when the freezing weather tries it best to dry out and irritate your skin.

Medik8 Hydr8 B5 has a lightweight, gel-like texture that spreads easily, sinks in within seconds and feels refreshing on. I use it both in the AM and PM, and my skin is perfectly hydrated and supple all day and night long.

P.S. Medik8 Hydr8 B5 is a great dupe for Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel. 😉

Medik8 Nourishing Body Cream

Medik8 Nourishing Body Cream strikes just the perfect balance: moisturizing enough to keep dry skin soft and supple all day long but not so much it leaves a greasy residue all over your skin.

Thank Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride for that. FYI, don’t let the name fool you. That’s coconut oil minus the comedogenic bits. Moisturizing, but not clogging.

The cream also has cacao butter. It creates a barrier on the skin that keeps moisture in so skin stays hydrating for longer.

But the star of the show for me is white tea. It’s an antioxidant that fights wrinkles and helps protect skin from sun damage. The best part? It’s way more powerful than green tea.

The catch? White tea is rarely used in skincare products. So when you find it, snap it up!
