Hyaluronic Acid with Vitamin B5 and Natural Moisturising Factors (NMF)
Take everything you love about the original Hydr8 B5 formula, including its silky-smooth texture and lush hydrating effects, then add Natural Moisturising Factors for an extra dose of dewiness. That’s the supercharged Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense, here to upgrade your skin hydration to the next level.
Like the original, the Medik8 B5 Intense version uses vitamin B5 and multi-weight hyaluronic acid to amplify and sustain skin hydration. However, this serum ramps up the hydrating power, mobilising a potent triple-action booster to quench and recharge the internal moisture source of your skin.
What are the benefits of Hydr8 B5 Intense serum for my skin?
This formulation maintains the same light gel-like texture of the original Hydr8 B5 serum, which absorbs quickly for immediate hydration. It’s the ultimate antidote for dry and thirsty skin – you’ll feel the difference in a matter of seconds when you massage this moisturising serum into your skin.
Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense helps to kickstart your skin’s natural hyaluronic acid production, keeping moisture levels up to the max all day for long-term hydration. The result? Visibly plumper and softer skin with diminished lines and wrinkles.
This stellar serum takes things up a notch with its triple-whammy of Natural Moisturising Factors, Saskatoon berry, and soy extract. These extra nourishing ingredients help to stimulate cell regeneration, strengthen skin elasticity, and maintain hyaluronic acid stores to protect your skin against dehydrating temperature changes.
How does Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense work?
First of all, this skin-quenching serum combines hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B5 to retain moisture stores and encourage skin cell regeneration throughout the layers of your skin. Hyaluronic acid molecules are able to draw and bind up to a thousand times their weight in water, while Vitamin B5 helps to retain this water while building up your skin’s protection against environmental irritants.
Added soy extract works as a natural anti-oxidant, stimulating hyaluronic acid and collagen production to create youthful plump skin. Medik8 B5 Intense serum is also infused with a selection of Natural Moisturising Factors to increase hydration and elasticity while maintaining the skin’s natural pH balance. These water-loving molecules occur naturally in the upper layers of the skin and include sodium PCA, glycerin, proteins, sugars, lactic acid, creatin, up to 15 amino acids, and more.
The third element supplementing the serum upgrade is Saskatoon berry, which gives the product its vibrant purple hue. From the wilderness of western Canada, this superfood is packed with powerful anti-oxidants known as anthocyanins, which neutralise free radicals and enzymes that break down hyaluronic acid. Saskatoon berry preserves moisture reservoirs in your skin and protects it against inflammation, keeping your skin deeply hydrated and preventing unwanted signs of premature ageing.
As if all of these skincare superpowers weren’t enough, the Hydr8 B5 Intense edition also includes biosaccharide gum as an active ingredient. This forms a breathable protective layer over your skin’s surface, preventing moisture loss from the upper layers and allowing your skin to retain that sought-after suppleness.

How to Apply+
Before introducing this product to your skincare routine, please test it on a small patch of skin and wait 24 hours in case of an adverse reaction. If your skin reacts well to Hydr8 B5 Intense, you can begin to use it regularly like so:
1) In the morning and/or evening, cleanse your skin before applying up to 6 drops of serum and massaging it into your face, neck, and down to the décolletage with your fingertips.
2) Allow the serum to absorb into the skin before applying day products (such as standard moisturisers and makeup) or night creams.
3) If applying in the morning, always use a sunscreen or moisturiser with SPF to keep your skin protected throughout the day, even if it’s cold or cloudy.
Applying the serum at night will allow it to work its magic while you sleep, then applying again in the morning will ensure that your skin maintains maximum hydration levels all day long.
Using a few drops of Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense serum twice a day will keep your skin hydrated from the inside out and maintain a healthy supple complexion. Though the serum is berry-toned, it will not stain your skin or leave any coloured residue behind.
