The product

Having dry, dull skin can often feel like you’re walking around with a neon sign emblazoned with the word ‘tired’ above your head. 

It can have a roll-on effect too, making makeup application challenging (hands up who’s ever felt personally victimised by dry patches), and enhancing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.   

Swisse Hyaluronic 2% Vitamin B5 Glow Booster Serum is formulated with hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5 and ceramides to help effectively hydrate dry, dull and dehydrated skin so you can start embracing a glowier version of you.  

With continued use you can expect to see an improvement on overall skin hydration, tone and texture, and a plumping of fine lines and wrinkles too.  

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this hydrating serum.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Swisse Hyaluronic 2% Vitamin B5 Glow Booster Serum to a panel of women aged 18 to 40 who want to exchange dry or dull skin for a dewy glow, and say goodbye to patchy makeup and fine and wrinkles while they’re at it. 

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Swisse Hyaluronic 2% Vitamin B5 Glow Booster Serum

How hydrating it was: Our members loved the combination of hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5 and ceramides, which made light work of rehydrating their dry, dehydrated skin.  

The way it improved skin tone and texture: A couple of our members who were dealing with acne and scarring said they were surprised at just how effective the serum was at smoothing skin texture and improving the overall clarity and tone of their complexion. 

It’s lightweight and fast-absorbing: Though the formula boasted potent hydrating properties, the consistency itself was reported as being incredibly lightweight. Our reviewers also said the serum absorbed quickly during application.  

The verdict

“When I started using the serum I was dealing with acne which had almost cleared but the acne treatment left my skin dry and flaky. The serum tremendously reduced the redness from my acne scars and dryness caused by the retinoids. My skin felt softer and hydrated. Acne prone skin doesn't have a strong lipid barrier, and since hyaluronic acid significantly improves skin barrier functions, this serum is a great addition to one's acne skin care routine. The serum glides onto the skin easily and absorbs quickly. It is lightweight and keeps the skin hydrated without weighing it down so one can easily layer it with other products.”

“Honestly, I loved it more than I was expecting. The packaging is simple but effective. The pump application works very well and dispenses well. One pump is more than enough to cover the entire face. It goes on very smoothly and doesn’t dry as you’re applying so you are able to evenly apply it all over the face. It instantly makes the skin feel very hydrated and absorbs relatively quickly. My skin has been very bumpy and breaking out due to wearing a mask at work for 8 hours everyday. After about a week of using it, I noticed my skin was brighter and less bumpy. The breakouts are smaller and I have no new ones. It’s also fading the fresh scarring from the high turnover of pimples I was getting. A very high quality product at a very good price point. Highly recommended!”

“This serum has given me softer and brighter skin after three weeks' of use. The Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B ingredients have really been beneficial for my skin. My skin is definitely plumper and more hydrated. This serum absorbs super fast, isn't sticky or oily and goes well under creams and makeup. It is lightweight and I don't feel any extra layer on my skin. I would highly recommend it and it is also very cost effective as a little goes a long way. The pump bottle is practical and dispenses a good amount, usually I use two pumps to cover my face and neck.”
