If you know me, you know I looooove hydration year round! So, I’ve been enjoying my Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration serum lately. I like it because it’s soothing, hydrating and has brightening effects!
The superstar ingredient is 'Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer' which is a smaller form of hyaluronic acid that works to lock moisture within the skin. As such, this serum works best when paired with an occlusive moisturizer.
Another superstar ingredient that this serum contains is niacinamide (another one of my favs!). Niacinamide has years and years of research in terms of its efficacy; its been shown to have brightening effects on the skin, and also helps increase elasticity and decrease fine lines.
Although I do enjoy this product, I think it’s important to mention that it contains various fruit extracts, which may be irritating for people who have sensitive skin.
